This Is What Will Happen When You Start Having Smoothies Every Day

The consumption of smoothies and juices is on the rise. All of a sudden, you can find a smoothie bar or juice press on every corner. Even big chains have started getting involved in the liquid revolution.

Drinking smoothies everyday can provide the average person an incredible amount of benefits. Too many people do not get the vitamins and minerals they need on a daily basis. But when you can drink your way to better health with a convenient smoothie, there is little stopping you from experiencing the benefits of proper nutrition.

Here are six things that you will notice after you start drinking smoothies everyday:

1. Your Digestion Will Improve

After you have started to make a healthy smoothie part of your regular routine, you will see improved levels of digestion. Experiencing a better digestive system is one of the main reasons that people include a smoothie in their everyday menu.

However, if you want to experience better movement in your abdomen, you will need to be consuming smoothies that are high in fiber. Smoothies that include plenty of greens, flax, nut butters and probiotics will be better for improving your digestion than a smoothie made only of fruit.

2. You’ll Develop A Strong Immune System

A healthy diet will help you fight disease and build a strong immune system. But you can supplement your healthy diet with daily smoothies. You can include immune system boosting ingredients into any smoothie. These ingredients will help you battle everything from the common cold to a suppressed immune system.

To create a cold-fighting smoothie, make sure you add plenty of Vitamin C. You can get Vitamin C from fruit sources like oranges and berries. Some evidence suggests that probiotics also lends your body immune support in addition to aiding digestion. You can get probiotics from a good brand yogurt.

3. You Will Get Your Five A Day

Most people are so busy with everything that is going on in their lives that it feels impossible to cook a healthy dinner. If it is hard to cook dinner, it is even harder to take the time to count the micronutrients. If you are always on the go, a good smoothie is a great way to ensure that you are getting the nutrition you need.

Getting these nutrients is only to your benefit if you live a busy life. The nutrients you consume allow you to function on the highest level possible.

When you increase the amount of raw fruit and vegetables you consume, you will notice great benefits. Some of these benefits include better sleep, fewer sick days, more energy and a general feeling of well-being.

4. You’ll Feel Hydrated and Full

The combination of added water and water derived from raw food will help you feel both hydrated and full after you consume a smoothie. Hydration is one of the most important facets of human life. Yet, many people remain dehydrated because they struggle to remember to drink water.

Smoothies are a great way to get plenty of water in your system. You even have the added benefit of combing your hydration with a plethora of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

You might even consider adding coconut water into your smoothie. Coconut water provides extra hydration because it also contains electrolytes. These electrolytes help you rehydrate the same way that sports drinks do – but without the added sugar!

5. You’ll Be Able To Nix the Cravings

Many of the cravings that people experience are phantom cravings. When you feel like you want a big bar of chocolate, what your body is really missing is magnesium. If you want to get your hands on a soda, you may be low in calcium. Of course, many cravings are also due to an intense sugar addiction. Most people do not realize how much they rely on sugar until they try to cut their sugar intake.

A smoothie a day will help you nix all of the cravings you experience throughout the day. When you get all of the nutrients that you need, your body will not go looking for them in other places. When you have an intense craving, you should be reaching for a healthy smoothie instead. You will often find that you feel more satisfied after a smoothie than you do giving in to an unhealthy craving.

The things that you experience when you drink a smoothie every day will leave you feeling like the happiest and healthiest you. Once you experience what it feels like to be well rested, fully hydrated and full of all of the nutrients you need, you may find that smoothies become your new craving.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
