Get Your Whole Food Fix

Work in a daily dose of fruits and vegetables through whole food smoothies and fresh-squeezed juices.

Mom always told you to eat your fruits and vegetables. But wouldn't it be easier to just drink them? Between work and working out, your best-laid plans to eat right often falls by the wayside. And you’re not alone: The average American adult eats vegetables just 1.6 times a day, and fruit just once a day, according to a recent report from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention. What’s more (and worse), instead of packing our plates with fruits and veggies, about a third of our daily calories come from junk food, says a study conducted by the United States Department of Agriculture.

But you don’t need to limit your fruit and vegetable intake to what you can whip up in your kitchen. (Who needs another daunting to-do, anyway?) Good news: Getting the required good-for-you nutrients can be quick and easy.

Exhibit A: Jamba Juice, who just expanded their menu to include a line of Whole Food Nutrition smoothies, made with kale, carrots, chia seeds, and Greek yogurt—and no added sugar. And as always, you can boost them up with whey protein for muscle building and recovery. Jamba also added more fresh fruits and vegetables to their juices. Think: apples, pineapples, oranges, and beets. Click here to check out the menu.
