Everyone has been victimized at one time or another by a food that appears to be remarkably healthy only to shed its outer skin and reveal itself as nothing more than an imposter.
It's like the rationale that goes into suggesting that milkshakes aren't so bad since they're made with milk, and milk is healthy. Or that a grilled chicken salad at McDonald's is better than a cheeseburger and fries, even though the dressing that you're using would make that same burger blush.
Food is a sticky situation, and plenty of dishes masquerade as being healthy but actually should carry a moniker made up of hidden fats, sugars and anything else you'd want to steer clear of as far as diet goes.
One that always stands out preys upon health food nuts that absolutely love the idea of eating fresh fruits and vegetables as much as they can, but often don't have the time to blend up a concoction in a short period of time.
So called smoothies that are packaged and sold at grocery stores, retailers and gas stations seem as though they're the alternative you've been looking for on the go, but in actuality are highly overrated and rich in calories. Your best bet if you're in the mood for a smoothie is to buy plenty of fruits and vegetables and juice until your heart is content. When you're finished, take what you aren't having at that very minute and freeze the rest in small, plastic cups that would suffice as a single serving.
