If you’ve ever watched Forks Over Knives, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, Food Matters, or read any of the multitude of books out there, like Anticancer, that support a whole-foods, plant based diet and lifestyle, you already know that eating clean offers protection against cancer and even suppression of any disease already present (cancer or otherwise).
“Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
Mushrooms, flaxseed, soy, collards, kale, carrots, berries, tea, legumes, nuts, oats, and on and on and on. Superfoods can help ward off heart disease, cancer, cholesterol, and more. But it doesn’t work when they’re deep fried, slathered with unhealthy, high-fat dressings or sauces, or barely there in whatever you are eating. You can eat them raw and whole or join me and smoothie it up! I am in for the SimpleGreenSmoothies.com 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. It starts January 1 – that’s TOMORROW. Get your blender ready and stock up on some leafy greens and fruits. It’s time to get healthy (or healthier). Click below to sign up for the challenge. You’ll get emails with details and recipes + shopping lists every Thursday.
Do you already drink green smoothies? Got some great recipes to share? Are you using any boosters like chia/hemp/flax seeds? Coconut oil? Let me know what works best for you!
