Smoothies and similar drinks are not always so nutritious

Like many people, I’ve long wanted to overhaul my eating habits and shift to a diet that includes more fresh vegetables and fewer processed foods. But as a mother of three young children, I have found this to be challenging. It’s too easy to fall back on carb- and meat-heavy recipes. So the idea of getting vegetable nutrients – including those found in such greens as kale, spinach and Swiss chard – in pureed juice or smoothie form is appealing. But are these popular drinks an effective way for your body to get what it needs?
