Dr. Dae says, “I love smoothies they are my go to food. Smoothies are filling because of the fiber and they are so quick to whizz up. They make an awesome breakfast, post-recovery meal or snack any time of day.”

According to the website, “smoothies consist of the entire fruit or vegetable, skin and all and contain all of the fiber from the vegetables. However, the blending process breaks the fiber apart (which makes the fruit & vegetables easier to digest) but also helps create a slow, even release of nutrients into the blood stream and avoids blood sugar spikes.

Smoothies tend to be more filling, because of the fiber, and generally faster to make than juice, so they can be great to drink first thing in the morning as your breakfast, or for snacks throughout the day.”
