Green Smoothie Inspiration: Sheryl K. – Erie, Pennsylvania, USA
“I began drinking green smoothies about mid-May 2013. I completely committed to making them a part of my routine by the end of May. I started merely for the health benefits and thought that the smoothies would be great way to get all my veggies in one fell swoop.
I had been on [a prescription medication for menopause] and was just starting my “resting” period after the first three month course. What I didn’t expect was that even now, two months into the “resting” period, my hot flashes remain minimal, the creepy crawly feeling I got EVEN when on the medication has vanished!
I’m completely sold on making green smoothies a part of my life and will not be going back on the menopause medication anytime soon. The symptoms of menopause are under control COMPLETELY naturally.
I am also maintaining my weight and I feel so much healthier.
I drink one medium green smoothie per day. My typical recipe is:
– 2 cups kale
– 2 cups spinach
– 1 scoop [green powder supplement]
– 1 medium banana
– 1/2 cup blueberries
– 1/2 cup raspberries
– 1/2 cup dark sweet cherries
– 1/2 peach
– 1/2 cup baby carrots
– 2 tablespoon flax meal
– 2 tablespoon chia seeds
I’m a carnivore. I love meat but I also eat lots of vegetables, fruit and I drink lots of water.
I’m a normally healthy eater. chicken, salmon, lean red meat, salads without dressing. I am watching fats but I will occasionally eat ice cream or buttery popcorn, just not in excess.
I’ve talked to total strangers in Walmart who were looking for weight loss help and menopause relief. I told them about the Incredible Smoothies website and all about green smoothies.
The absence of hot flashes and annoying other menopause symptoms are the biggest change that I’ve experienced with green smoothies. I’ve used a lot of products for treating menopause symptoms, including adding flax seed to my diet, but nothing worked quite like my green smoothies!!!!
I am so grateful that I was turned on to green smoothies by a co-worker! I love them!”
Even Carnivores Can Benefit From Green Smoothies
A lot of people ask me if they have to go full on raw vegan in order to benefit from green smoothies. The answer is no! But you do need to focus on embracing a whole foods lifestyle to truly unlock the potential of green smoothies.
Whether you are a self-described “carnivore” or well on your way to raw veganism, my Green Smoothie Weight Loss Program can help you get the most from incorporating green smoothies into your diet. In the program, I share all my secrets about how I lost 40 pounds, dropped my cholesterol by 50 points, became fit enough to run a marathon, and so much more.
