For the past three years I create a delicious, healthy, organic smoothie for breakfast every day.  About 1.5 years ago I started recording it, along with other thoughts, on my Facebook page.

Here is another sampling from The Daily Smoothie Report … Brought to you by the Iron vitamin, or lack thereof. Before going on about Iron deficiency; here is my smoothie combo of the morning created with water, raspberries, blueberries, kale, spinach, broccoli and ginger.

Why am I going on about Iron. Well, I had an appt with my lung doctor the other day and he said my system was low on Iron. I wish to get my Iron from healthy eating, juicing and smoothies. I am not keen on taking Iron pills. They make me constipated and really don’t boost my Iron count. So here is some news on Iron………..

Many vegetarians and vegans worry about getting enough iron in their diet. Since meat is traditionally thought of as the main source of iron, vegetarians need to find different sources to help them reach their recommended amount of iron each day. Fortunately, there are several delicious and easy-to-prepare options that are both rich in iron and vegetarian-friendly.


What has a good source of Iron … Brussel Sprouts, raisins, lentils, pumpkin seeds, soybeans, pinto beans, arugula, collard greens, black beans, brown rice prune juice, oatmeal, potatoes, tofu, lima beans, broccoli, kale, dark chocolate [YUM!], sunflower seeds, peas, strawberries and spinach. Hum, a good list of healthy options for me to partake of and boost my Iron count.

For the past two to three years I create a delicious, healthy, organic smoothie for breakfast every day.  About 1.5 years ago I started recording it, along with other thoughts, on my Facebook page.

Here is another sampling from The Daily Smoothie Report … Brought to you by the healthy benefits of eating Avocado.  But first my delicious smoothie blast of the morning; created with water, pineapple, kale, avocado, strawberries, ginger and celery.  And now more about avocado’s………

The avocado is a rather unique type of fruit.  Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, while avocado is high in healthy fats.  Numerous studies show that it has powerful beneficial effects on health.  What we refer to as “avocado” is the fruit of the avocado tree, called Persea Americana.  This fruit is prized for its high nutrient value and is added to all sorts of dishes due to its good flavor and rich texture. It is the main ingredient in guacamole.  These days, the avocado has become an incredibly popular food among health conscious individuals. It is often referred to as a superfood… which is not surprising given its health properties.

Here are several health benefits of avocado, that are supported by scientific research.
1.      Nutritious
2.     Contains more Potassium than Bananas
3.     Heart Healty Monounsaturated Fatty Acids
4.     Fiber
5.     May help prevent Cancer
6.     Powerful Antioxidants that can Protect your Eyes
