FRESH GREEN SMOOTHIES
Are you consuming adequate amounts of FRESH fruits and vegetables daily? I know if I don’t have a smoothie I’m nowhere close to anyone’s recommended amounts.
A recent survey that included the UK, USA, Norway, France, Italy, Ukraine and Holland showed some pretty shocking information. . More than 20million adults eat less than 2 fruits or veggies per day.
This is well below the guidelines of any of the advisory committees in any of the countries.
What’s even more startling is that the study discovered that more than 5 million adults have NO veggies or fruits during the day. Generation Y is 4 times as likely as generation X and 5 times generation Y to eat -0- vegetables. This is insane. This is suicide.
Shocked by these findings, Vitamix is encouraging the green smoothie movement in North America, Europe and Australia
