Conclusion: Smoothie Revolution: cocktails instead of a meal!

Nutritionists recommend eating light fruit cocktails for breakfast, and nutritious vegetables for lunch and dinner.  In summary, the Cocktail-Bible looks like this:

  • Make cocktails yourself.
  • Instead of fat milk and sour cream, use low-fat kefir, yoghurt or cottage cheese, instead of sugar, honey and flower pollen.
  • Vegetable cocktails try not to salt: it is more useful to add grinded dry sea kale and spices.
  • You can include protein or soybean powder, multivitamins, flax seeds or wheat germs in cocktails: they can increase the protein and nutrient content.
  • To reduce weight in fruit drinks use less caloric fruits and berries – apricots, mandarins and black currants: they contain 0% fat. To low-fat products, you can also include apples, grapefruits, pineapples, pomegranates, cherries. But from bananas, grapes, avocados, watermelon, melons and peaches, in this case, it is better to refuse.
  • Most potassium is found in cherries, tomatoes and apricots, sodium in beets, carrots and tangerines, calcium in black currant and lemon, and phosphorus in black chokeberry, vegetables and rose hips.
  • And most importantly – stock up thick tubes!
