Orange, Lemon And Flaxseeds Smoothie For Weight Loss
Orange juice is low in calories and has zero fat, which makes it an excellent option if you are looking to lose quick two or three kilos. This wonder fruit is a great source of flavonoids, carotenoids, and vitamin C - all of which are known to detoxify the body.
According to book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing House, "Flaxseeds are a great source of soluble fibre that acts like hunger suppressant and helps you feel full for long. Their high omega-3 fatty acids content can help lower undesirable fats (triglycerides) in the blood, reducing the risk of stroke and heart attack."
Lemons are a good source of vitamin C, which is known to improve immunity and flush out all the toxins. Moreover, lemons are extremely low in calories and high in pectin fibre. So, you may add lemon to your herbal smoothie without any guilt.
- 2 oranges
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
- A pinch of black salt
- Start with peeling the oranges, remove the seeds and chop them.
- Now, put oranges, lemon juice and flaxseeds to a mixer and blend them well.
- Add a pinch of black salt (optional) and stir well. Pour into a tall glass and serve.
Include this healthy smoothie in your daily diet and see the results yourself!
