Did you know that “Adult-Onset Diabetes” had to be renamed “Type 2 Diabetes” due to the vast numbers of children developing this lifestyle-induced type of diabetes?
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) reports that among Americans aged 20 years or younger, about 215,000 young people have diabetes. You have to agree that 215,000 is too many children to have diabetes.
Drinking a daily green smoothie has helped many people with diabetes because it can improve your health and digestion, provide more energy, and increase weight loss!
Blended (not juiced) green smoothies are high in fiber, which slows down the release of natural sugars into the bloodstream. You need help to control your blood sugar levels and a daily green smoothie aids your body in doing this naturally.
A handful of frozen blueberries
1 bunch of dandelion greens (or 2-3 large handfuls of leafy greens)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
2 cups of pure or filtered water
Tip:Lower glycemic fruit such as pears, apples, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, tomatoes, or cucumbers are a great addition to a diabetic friendly smoothie.
