Healthy New Year


                               A Smoothie A Day, helps keep the doctor away: 
Drinking fruit smoothies can help you reach the recommended daily intake of fiber (25 grams for women and 38 grams for men). One serving of fruit typically contains two to four grams of fiber with blackberries, pears and apples having the highest concentration of five to seven grams per serving. The soluble fiber found in fruit helps slow digestion and may help control blood sugar and lower cholesterol.
