Making one of our low carb smoothie recipes takes all the worry out of working out your carbs.

What is a carb Carboyhdrates are a form of energy which the body has to turn into glucose before it can be used. There are two types of carbohydrates Simple and Complex.

Complex carbs can be found in natural foods such as bananas, lentils, wholegrain cereals and nuts.
Simple carbs are found in biscuits, cakes, chocolate and soft drinks. These lists are by no means complete.

The body can use simple carbs very quickly which is why if you have not eaten for a while and your glucosse levels are low you will feel quickly energized by eating a biscuit or sweet. However that energy will not last long and you will soon need another fix of carbs. The best kind of carbs are the complex ones as they take a little longer to digest and convert into glucose but when they do your energy levels will stay constant and you won't be diving into the biscuit tin to replace falling glucose levels.

Fibre is another important element in our diet. Some of the best sources of fibre are in fruit and vegetables so go ahead and add lots of broccoli, carrots and spinach along with apples, berries and oranges to your low carb smoothie recipes.

Antioxidants - As well as carbs and fibre, fruit and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants help keep our internal organs as well as our skin, hair and nails healthy and younger looking by fighting off free radicals.

Water - In today's society we don't drink enough water, preferring tea and coffee or flavoured drinks. Loaded with water, fruit and veg will help us with our daily intake.
