Dr Sears, the famous pediatrician, has an article in this months Prevention Mag. Aug 2010. He writes that he developed this smoothie recipe while recuperating from colon cancer 14 yrs ago. He describes it as good for the gut & mental clarity. Well, mental clarity is a need of mine now that I am 62 yrs old. Foggy memory and sometimes only a brick wall when I attempt to 'recall'. I have been off sugar/ high carbs for about 3 months now & feeling mucho better w/out those things in my diet.
I take a high protein low carb (powder)mix in the AM. I am interested in this recipe but it has way too many fruits/sugars for me. Please comment on this smoothie recipe and what are the source/ingredients for the 'mental clarity'? I have all of the ingredients on hand but will not use that much fruit/fructose. I do not process sugars of any kind. thank you. mary
