Kiwi Kale Smoothie Supports Weight Loss is perfect to get ready for the summer body. You all know what I mean after a long winter and bundled clothes to keep warm, its hard to stay motivated and workout all the time.
I for one know that as soon as March rolls around, I start getting motivated before the wardrobe changes. As we start peeling our clothes off, I noticed that my pants are a little tighter but most of all my body feels like it needs more activity. The longer hours days make it possible to be more active outside.
We both are members at our local gym which makes it easy to go together after work. My favorite is walking to the river and back. It’s about 3 miles and makes it more entertaining for me. This is one activity we love to go on Sunday morning and make a stop for our favorite Salted Caramel Mocha.
As we get back I make this super healthy smoothie that has one of my favorite fruits, KIWI! Kiwi fruit is a rich source of vitamin C (112% of the Daily Value per 100 grams). Kiwi is considered a ‘low’ category for glycemic index, meaning it does not raise your blood sugar quickly. This is perfect for us to lose weight.
