The Major Benefits of Smoothies

Over the past few years, smoothies have been a growing phenomenon in the health and wellness industry. If you live in a major city, you will have probably noticed the increasing smoothie bars springing up all over the place and people carrying a plastic glass filled with brightly colored liquids, making you wondering what on earth are smoothies?

What Are Smoothies?

A smoothie is a blended, cold, thick, and non- alcoholic liquid drink that is made up of fresh vegetables, fruit, its juice or pulp. In most cases, it includes milk or ice cream. Almost all kinds of fruits and vegetables work well with smoothies, but the famous ones are blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, pineapples, mangoes, bananas, and peaches. To be creamier, frozen fruits are used. The vegetables that work well with the fruits are usually the leafy greens. Do not be fooled by the false claims that smoothies are made from unhealthy mixes with altered ingredients. These products are entirely a marketing ploy and bogus. Smoothies are a healthy alternative.

The Major Benefits

Nutrient-Dense And Contain Fat: Smoothies are natural, nutrient-dense and all-natural ingredients that contains oils and vitamins necessary for complete nutrition. Fat is needed for biological functions as it is burned for energy. A healthy smoothie have dietary fats for the body to utilize in incorporating the vitamins.

Keeps You Hydrated: Smoothies for breakfast keep you hydrated for the day. This function is something that coffee or soda won't do. Given that your body will pull water from the foods to stay hydrated, you no longer need to drink water when you are sipping on a smoothie. Yogurt and milk are water, therefore, if your smoothie has a high dairy content, you'll surely quench your thirst.

Dairy-Based Type Provide Calcium: Smoothies made with high content of dairy product provide calcium necessary for bone strength. You may try kefir or yogurt, as these cultured products are the best sources of live cultures and probiotics.

Simple to Make: When you own a good blender, getting a quality ingredient, and making a delicious smoothies is just a snap of a finger. Start with ten oz. of almond milk, fresh, yogurt, or frozen fruits. These fruits are high in vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Other excellent ingredient are extra virgin coconut oil, raw Omega-3 egg yolks, pure vanilla extract and shredded coconut.

Make a Healthy Breakfast: For morning breakfast, a homemade smoothie is an excellent choice. You can make it in just five minutes before leaving the house. Drinking a smoothie keeps you from consuming empty carbohydrates. If you have difficulty taking cod liver oil, you may a few drops of your smoothie. With smoothie, you will never see the differences in taste. You’ll add a great cups of essential fatty acids and vitamins to your nutritious meal.

Better Than Multi-Vitamins: Despite what most people think, the "multi-vitamins" taken daily are not demonstrably proven to have considerable health benefits. The most effective way to obtain nutrition is through foods, and consuming a smoothie daily gives you the best nutrients.

To sum it up, a smoothie is made up of frozen or fresh fruits or vegetables that has numerous benefits that far outweigh any cons.

Identifying Sounds Out in the Field: Stop and Listen!

During my morning coffee / SLLS halt I was focusing on all of the different sounds that I could hear during a light rain shower.

Being able to identify different sounds out in the field is an often underrated and forgotten skill set.

In a survival or field environment, the ability to identify different sounds can be a life saving skill.

This morning, I tried to count the different sounds by type.

Here are some of the distinct sounds heard from this morning's SLLS halt:

1. Rain and dripping water
2. A variety of birds (more than 5 types)
3. Vehicles in the distance
4. A car door closing
5. Adult and children's voices
6. Aircraft flying overhead (fixed wing)
7. Crickets / insects
8. A nearby vehicle starting
9. The backup beep of a truck
10. A squirrel climbing up a tree
11. A woodpecker tapping on a tree
12. Music playing in a car nearby

There are probably several more that I missed. But you get the idea.

Even though it was raining, during morning time, in a quiet neighborhood, there was still a lot going on.

Out in the field, in a tactical or survival scenario, hearing a branch snap, or the bushes rustle, could mean big trouble, or maybe it's your next meal.

There are distinct differences between a combat boot crunching deadfall and an animal moving through the bush.

It's obviously even more important at night, during low visibility conditions. 

Most people are complacent, take everything for granted, and do not pay attention to little details. 

If you venture outdoors, spend a few, quiet, still minutes in that environment, and acquaint yourself to the sounds. 

One day, it could be very important.
