Banana is loaded with fiber which keeps everything moving in your system. Fiber is key for preventing certain kinds of cancer as your body is always chug chug chuggalugging along! Eating bananas before a workout is PERFECT as it gives you that natural energy boost you crave. Bananas also regulate blood sugar so they're good when a woman is PMS'ing. Guys... maybe you should try buying your lady a bunch of bananas if it has been a rough week, but don't make it obvious...or you'll make it worse ;) Bananas reduce swelling and aid with weight loss too.... SOLD!
Kale, like almonds and bananas, is high in "oh so good for you" fiber, Along with that, kale is full of antioxidants and Vitamin K which prevent cancer as well. Kale is one of the best detoxifying foods. Loaded with Omegas, this miracle food is wonderful for our hair and skin too. I like to incorporate it into all my juices. If you're scared about flavor, trust me, kale is almost flavorless in smoothies. The only way you can tell its in there is the green color.
Honey is another miracle food. I used raw honey which is unprocessed and unpasteurized. All of the main benefits of honey are killed in the processing and pasteurization process, so it is KEY to buy raw honey. Or else you might as well just put sugar in your smoothie. Honey promotes digestive health, strengthens the immune system and prevents allergies. Honey has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, so this is great for preventing that pesky flu that's been going around.... and if you did catch the flu, put some of this honey in your tea for relief and as natural medicine!
