It’s 8:00 A.M. and I have a few minutes before I need to leave the house, so without much thought I grabbed 3 plums, some spinach and threw them in the blender. I then realized I hadn’t consumed any fats in the past couple of days so I tossed in half an avocado, hence the “fat cat” part of the title. After adding ice, water and a tsp of stevia, I was in dork smoothie heaven. I loved this so much that I’ve made it for three consecutive days.
Plums have some amazing health benefits, well I guess I would say that about any fruit or vegie, except maybe iceburg lettuce. One cup contains 2.3 g of fiber, 10% of your RDA for copper and 15% of your RDA for Vitamin C. This fruit is great for antioxidant benefits because of the unique phytonutrients it contains. Most notable is that research has discovered plums have anti-cancerous benefits and blood cleansing abilities. Make sure you’re eating a wide variety of fruits and vegies every week to get the full benefit that mother earth provides.
