The VegStart Diet Recipe: Kiwi Green Smoothie for Breakfast
Why This Kiwi Green Smoothie is Healthy:
Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They’re loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
Why It Works for Weight Loss:
Kiwis have 2.1 grams of fiber, good for digestion and contain an enzyme that can help break down protein. Smoothies will keep you full until lunchtime comes around.
