  • The fiber in produce can help you feel fuller longer, putting hunger pangs at bay between meals.

  • Juices and smoothies can take the place of less nutritious snacks and help you resist temptation.

  • If having several smaller meals per day is part of your plan, a smoothie is a good meal replacement choice.

Working more fruits and vegetables into your day delivers significant health benefits, and juices and smoothies make it easy to load up on vitamins, minerals and, antioxidants. Here are just some of the benefits, according to choosemyplate.gov:

  • Diets rich in fiber may lower the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.

  • Most produce is naturally low-fat and lower in calories.

  • A diet packed with fruits and vegetables may lower the risk of heart disease.

  • Some fruits and vegetables as part of an overall good diet may offer protection against certain types of cancers.
