It’s that time of year again! I know you feel it too. The days are longer, the air is warmer, and you find yourself daydreaming for ways to indulge, relax, and treat yourself to all things good. Summertime fuels our sense that the “livin’ is good.” And if you’re a mom, you especially feel this way. School is out and let’s admit it, modern education demands a lot from parents! What better way to relax and unwind from the school year than with a cool smoothie that also fits your health requirements too.
Today’s feature, a Caramel Apple Smoothie, is especially yummy in the evenings, for lounging in the backyard, by the pool, while the kiddos play. You won’t believe the secret ingredient though…Caramel Apple Fiber! You’re likely wondering why I would craft a smoothie around Fiber? Let’s get down to business…
This Caramel Apple Fiber is especially effective to get you lean by increasing your Adopenectin, a.k.a. the “skinny hormone!”… A medical study using 20 grams of Stabilized rice bran (the same ingredient and in the quantities provided in Purium’s Power Shake and their Caramel Apple Fiber) consumed over 12 weeks increased study subjects’ adiponectin by 30.7- 44.3%. This is statistically significant because adiponectin levels are approx. 40% higher in lean individuals over those who were considered obese. Who knew, right?
While I’m all for getting skinny, most overlook that the Caramel Apple Fiber increases your wellness too!…Daily Fiber creates short chain fatty acids, which feed the cells in your colon and are also involved in the metabolism of carbs and fat. The short chain fatty acids produced from fiber significantly reduce your risk of inflammatory diseases, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Sadly the average American falls significantly short of their recommended daily fiber intake, and certainly that’s true for fiber from whole food sources.
Increasing your intake of the fiber from Stabilized Rice Bran Solubles, increases adiponectin for weight loss and wellness!!! And what better way to include it in your summer diet than with a Caramel Apple Smoothie! Your whole family will love it!
It’s time to get that blender out and running!
