blender for fruits and veggies?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


Just bought the "it starts with food" book and I have this one question.


I love berries black, blue, raspberries, etc. Im just not big on veggies at all! I love scallions, peppers are ok, fresh spinach is ok , kale, etc. But the other veggies, I really need to blend (puree) with water and then I usually mix in the berries so it dont taste so bad!


Now, I read that its not good because you lose some fiber and sugar will be in excess from the puree?


I would love to know if I "shouldnt" or "it would be ok!!!!"?

Smoothies (especially fruit-heavy ones) are discouraged on a Whole30.  

Details here from the Whole30 Can I Have Guide:

"Smoothies: We’d rather you didn’t
This is a very popular question, with a very unpopular answer. Smoothies (generally made using lots of fruit) are technically compliant on your Whole30, but we strongly recommend against it. Food that you drink sends different satiety signals to your brain than food that you chew. So when you drink your meal, your brain isn’t getting the feedback it needs to tell your body that it’s had enough of what it needs. Plus, smoothies are generally really fruit-heavy, and starting your day off with a liquid sugar-bomb sets you up for cravings, hunger, and volatile energy levels throughout the day. In summary, we’d rather you just eat the food, and skip the smoothie."

I encourage you to try cooking vegetables differently than you may have in the past, and perhaps using different spices and seasonings. You can create most flavorful vegetables!
