One's health is a very important investment. Not only does it keep you going and doing your job, but it also keeps you away from costly hospital bills. Being healthy also lets you be active and do the things you love and the things you enjoy. It is both a financial and a personal investment. If one's health is important, no one can argue that the health of your whole family is equally as important. You do not want your kids going back and forth to your family doctor, right?

Green Smoothie

Kids are prone to a lot of diseases, since their immune systems are not yet fully developed, which is why a lot of children get sick often. They are very vulnerable to diseases, and it is important to protect them.

The easiest way to safeguard the kids from these harmful illnesses is for them to get sufficient vitamins and minerals. Multivitamin supplements are good sources but are not enough. The best sources for vitamins and minerals are vegetables and fruits. The nutrients found in these are natural and pure are more effective that those found in pill form.

The problem now is how to get your children to eat vegetables. Most adults have already embraced the idea of eating vegetables, but for children sometimes they do not get the idea of why we need to eat vegetables. The easiest way to get them to eat it is to let them drink it. By creating green smoothies your children and those who do not like to eat vegetables can discover a new found love for eating them.

Green smoothies are healthy, as their main ingredients are natural fruits, vegetables, and sometimes nuts. The advantage of drinking green smoothies is that the fruits and vegetables are uncooked and just blended with ice. Leaving vegetables uncooked keeps the vitamins, minerals and other essential enzymes intact, since cooking usually breaks them down. Having these in their natural form helps boost your immune system and especially your children's.

Green smoothies are also very delicious, and your family will surely enjoy them. This way you can let your kids eat the suggested amount of fruits and vegetables per day. Your kids will also love drinking green smoothies, because they can make them themselves. With your guidance you can let them select the fruits and vegetables that they want, and you can blend it for them. That way they won't hesitate to drink it, because they know what they selected.

For sure your family will eat enough fruits and vegetables everyday with green smoothies. It is, indeed, a great way to improve your whole family's health. Eating vegetables will get you far in improving your health and your family's. A setting where everyone in your family wants to have vegetables every day is healthy.

Green smoothies taste great, look great, smell great, and are great for your body. They are a treat that everyone will love and enjoy and for sure they will go back and drink some more.

    They are not really thick enough to be called smoothies but I love the freshly-made fruit and vegetable drinks that you can buy at my supermarket coffee bar. My favourite is refreshing and zinggy with its mix of apples, celery, grapefruit and kiwifruit - totally yum and exactly what I need after my weekly shop before going home and unpacking it all. They also make me feel quite pious so it's value all around!

    Another way to get children to eat green vegetables is to serve them in a way that appeals. More often it is the texture rather than the flavour that children object to. My kids grew up loving frozen peas though they flatly refused them once they were cooked. Similarly they ate raw shredded cabbage, brussels sprouts, cold blanched broccolli and crisp raw beans. However, they t turned up their noses if I served these vegetables cooked. Now they eat anything and everything and are passionate cooks themselves.

    I was exactly the same when I was younger. I still can't stand cooked cabbage but I'll pretty much eat anything else.
    My son's nearly nine months old and he will eat pretty much anything so long as someone else is eating it too. If he's the only one eating - he refuses it. It's a real pain having cold dinners but I'd rather he eat his food.

    I love fruit smoothies, and I love veggies too - but Im afraid these green slimy things remind me too much of snot to be appealing! Sorry! Im sticking to purple berry smoothies, and golden pineapple smoothies!

    I don't consider an avocado a vegetable bur rather a fruit. They are packed with nutritional goodies regardless.

    As kids, we always ate avocados as dessert. You simply slice them in half, remove the stone, stprinkle the inside with plain sugar then dribble over lemon juice till the sugar crystals don't look dry. Pop in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. The sugar draws out juices from the flesh which mingle with the lemon. The result is the most wonderfully fresh creaming dessert in it's own bowl, Plaace on half on a plate for each person and serve wtih a spoon to scoop the flesh.

    For a dinner party, the you can scoop the flesh yourself and put it in a blender with a a dash or two of Cointreau, blending until smooth. Pour the thick puree into a Marguirete glass for a stunning finish to a meal.

    The third way we ate avocado as dessert was to make it into an ice-cream. It's absolutely superb and I am sure you can find a recipe on the web if you would like to try it. I would go for the simplest as the lemon, sugar and avocado really are a 'taste symphony'.

    I have that the flavour of avocados is also complimented by chocolate but I dislike this combination myself and the chocolate also deadens the gorgeous green colour of the natural fruit.
