This is the introduction the the new “You are what you eat” section on FibroTV.com. I hope to get as many people as possible interested in making health choices when in comes to food and get as many people as healthy as possible. You deserve to do this! You are worth it! I believe in you!
This is a smoothie I do at least 4 days a week. Take note that you do not have to use all the same ingredients as I do as some fruits and veggies are only available seasonally. You do want to balance out the glucose that is in the fruits with some kind of green veggie and/or protein so that your blood sugar does not spike. Proteins include nuts and seeds or even a good protein powder will due. (Just be careful with protein powders as some have processed ingredients in them read the label before buying) As I stated in the video try to get organic but if it is not available or you can not afford it conventionally grown food is better than eating less nutritionally dense foods. To wash some of the pesticides off of non organic foods you can make a simple solution to clean them.
- Mix 3 parts water to 1 part white vinegar (3:1 ) in a spray bottle.
- Spray on fruits and veggies to get rid of pesticide residue.
- Rinse with water after spraying.
