The Perfect Green Smoothie:
Easy Weight Loss Smoothie. Zucchini Kale Buckwheat Baobab.
Baobab and soluble fiber make this incredible potent as a weight-loss smoothie. The veggies and buckwheat contribute soluble fiber which helps, but the huge push is from the sky high amounts of vitamin C from Baobab. A study by Arizona State scientists showed that people consuming high amounts of vitamin C burn fat 25% faster. So workouts are more effective people!
And don’t forget to use organic unpeeled zucchinis since they are on the dirty list at . Download my free clean/dirty lists here and post them on your refrigerator!
Buckwheat groats (actually a fruit) contribute to weight loss effects because they are high in soluble fiber which suppress appetites. You soak them overnight in water and a tsp of ACV to aid in digestion, then rinse and blend into your morning smoothie.
Easy Weight Loss Smoothie - Zucchini Kale Buckwheat Baobab
The perfect green smoothie for healthy weight control, with zucchini, kale, buckwheat (a fruit), and an immunity booster superpowder, Baobab!
Soak your buckwheat groats in 3-4 times the amount of water, overnight and in the refrigerator. Be sure to add a tsp of apple cider vinegar to the water. The soaking this way will breaks down the natural phytic acid (present on many seeds and grains to protect them as they grown) and it's important to remove it before we eat it to make it easier to digest.
Buy organic zucchini or leave it out - you need organic because this veggie (and like berries) is considered high in insecticide absorption if not grown organically. You must buy it organic.
Make the smoothie, easy peasy!
Blend liquids and leaves first, add zucchini and the rest and blend until smooth. I typically chill at least an hour before drinking or replace some of the water with ice. Chilling this smoothie makes it taste brighter.
Meal Prep Tip
I typically make this 3-cup smoothie, and save half for the next day - that way the ingredients are still fresh yet I am not blending every day.
Or make even more and freeze the liquids into ice cubes to blend later in the week.
