So much of health is all about habits and actions, but where do these all stem from? What if we don’t have to make as many changes as we think we do? What if there was one powerful thing that makes a lot of difference?

We see smoothies everywhere now! In mall food courts, airports and trendy neighborhoods. I am happy to see that they have become so common, and even thought I don't think they are just a health trend, doesn't mean that ALL smoothies are healthy either.

If you have included smoothies into your day to boost your energy, help with weight loss, for a quick breakfast or to increase your fruits and veggies in your diet then GOOD FOR YOU! 

But... we can be hurting our weight loss progress and ruining our energy levels if we don't make smoothies with the right formula. 

In general, we toss in a bunch of ingredients, whatever tastes good and hit 'blend' until creamy, then we are good to go, right? 

In theory, that's all there really is to a smoothie, but we can make them healthier with a few tweaks.

You might hear the term Nutritionist, Holistic Nutrition Coach, Nutrition Consultant or something else similar to that. Not all Nutrition Coaches are the same and every different province and state has a different term, as well as different training schools. A Nutrition Coach is someone who has training and experience in healthy eating and understands the way food and good nutrition can affect our health.
