I have a smoothie just about every day added to my brekfast. I always pour it over my oatmeal, or nuts and fruit, etc. (instead of soy or any other milk--so i chew instead of drink)My smoothie has little fruit, maybe 1/2 banana and some berries. My usual suspects to include are-
1-T fresh flaxseeds--1 clove garlic--1-2 handfulls of greens (kale-spinach-collards-etc)1T vitamineral green-drop b12 (few times a week)
drop vit. D (2000iu's) piece fresh ginger. Whirl it up in my vitamix--is it "delicious"--nope, but pretty good to me. More fruit would make it taste better but i trade that off.
A question, on the xtend-life site Warren Matthews believes that kale, collards,(maybe others--spinach, broccoli, o.k.) should not be eaten raw (reasons why escape me)"Always" cook. Anyone have any thoughts on that ? What i do is heat up some water to boil when i use those veggies and pour it in just to be safe. He doesn't know if that is o.k. but could be.
Many people believe many things and many website promote many ideas and philosophies. But, as we have discussed here many times, there is something called the Burden of Proof which is based on Standards of Evidence which is how we evaluate claims.
However, as a result of these websites and the information they promote and their influence, many people, including some who post here, choose to implement advice that is not recommended. While most of this advice is more than likely harmless, some of it maybe harmful and some even dangerous. The main problem is, people dont know which is which and more importantly it takes their focus off of what is known and proven to work, which is where their main focus should be.
More is not always better and manipulating foods to get more, may not be better either.
