Health & Nutritional Benefits

Strawberries

Not only are strawberries berry delicious, they're also very nutritious! Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, folic acid as well as fiber.

Just one cup of fresh strawberries contains 160% of the recommended daily quantity of vitamin C. Sweet!

Beets

Beet roots are rich in betaine and the nutrient choline. And when it comes to supporting a healthy heart, this veggie simply cannot be beet!

Betaine, an amino acid, helps to reduce high blood pressure and regulate inflammation in the cardiovascular system. It also helps to balance cholesterol levels.

Beet roots also contain glutathiones, a compound that naturally cleanses the blood of toxins, heavy metals and yucky waste.

Spinach

As the song goes, Popeye the Sailor Man was as "strong to the fin-ich" because he "eats his spinach"... and for good reason. These mean lil' greens pack a powerful punch!

Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamine, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese.

Bananas

It would be bananas NOT to mention the benefits of bananas too! Bananas are known to help calm upset stomachs and are full of electrolytes and minerals like magnesium and hydration regulating potassium.

In fact, a medium-sized banana is jam-packed with 422 mg of potassium! Good things!

Smoothie Tips

Do you have a bunch of bananas that have seen better days? Peel them, then quarter or chop them, toss them in a freezer bag and then freeze 'em. This way you'll have frozen bananas ready to rock out your next smoothie in a flash!

This also applies to other fresh fruits. Go bananas pre-making your smoothie portions so should the smoothie mood strike, you'll have all of your frozen ingredients ready to go!

Question are most beets GMO ?

Sounds good though :)

Wild banana have seeds right?
So what kind are we eating ? Hybridized ?

I wish they would leave our food alone
Ugh

We are eating science
