While not the sexiest topic, regularity is essential to good health, and one of the best ways to achieve it, along with sufficient daily water intake and recommended exercise, is through strategic nutrition, like today’s Social Gal Smoothie, affectionately dubbed Smooth Moves.
Packed with fiber-rich fruits and veggies, and other magic ingredients, a daily bullet like this one can do incredibly effective things for your regularity machine, encouraging at least the minimum prescribed: one movement per day (yes, that kind of movement, the one Oprah speaks so freely about).
