Smoothies won’t just be notorious for your body and keep your stomach full but might also help you with boosting your metabolism. Here are a few components you might want to keep in your kitchen to help you with your metabolism:

  • Nuts: they’re all good for your health no matter how you consume them (preferably raw). They contain an amino acid called L-arginine along with healthy fats and proteins. These elements will help you burn more fat when taken before a workout.
  • Berries: not only delicious and sweet, but berries also contain low sugar percentage and a lot of anti-oxidants as well as blood pressure balancing properties.
  • Grapefruit: they’re great for helping your body burning fat thanks to phytochemicals that will produce adiponectin.
  • Green or white tea: unlike coffee, tea is a light caffeine drink to boost your energy while providing anti-oxidants that will push your liver to convert the fats and burn them.
  • Spinach and leafy greens: provide many vitamins and rich in fibers.
  • Whole grains: incredibly full and rich with fibers which eventually help you stay full for long hours.
  • Avocado: definitely good for combating cholesterol and that annoying belly fat. Avocadoes contain a lot of vitamin B6 and provide healthy fats.
  • Cinnamon: a great spice that can act as anti-oxidant and helps with blood pressure issues.
  • Watermelon and tomatoes: contain a large amount of water which makes them great for hydration. They also contain Vitamin A and help with minimizing fat storage, plus they’re good for the heart.
  • Pears and apples: sweet and yummy. They’re full of fibers that keep full.
  • Grapes: full of fibers and water.
  • Celery: needs more energy to digest so it is going to speed up the fat burning process. Also rich in fibers!
  • Dark chocolate: contains large amounts of polyphenols which help in burning fat (use 70% +)

Remember a healthy smoothie must always contain only natural ingredients. Naturally, you can’t add any processed sweeteners or ingredients, and of course, keep up with a good workout routine and balanced healthy meals.

Stay Healthy!
