Smoothies are not paleo, you don't need magic berries from the other side of the planet. Eat a small bit of liver each week - it's the only true superfood.
So for the past week I have been making fruit smoothies with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, and then some kale, chard and powder that removes heavy metals from your body called geo force. I am wondering about the sugar and if its... (more)

I knew whey protein is not considered strictly paleo for a long time, but I always used it because I had no reason to believe it is bad. But recently I felt a little phlegm-y after having two smoothies in one day, so I did some digging around.... (more)
I've been drinking a kale smoothie every morning for a few weeks and it's been great so far! They contain plenty of vitamins/minerals/fats, but I'm almost completely lacking protein. For the past few days, I've been scrambling up 3 duck eggs from... (more)
I put two or three raw chicken egg yolks in my kale smoothie every morning and have for years. I get the eggs from a neighbor and have never had a problem. Just make sure the shells are clean before you crack them.
I know that strawberries and blueberries are near the top of the list of "Things to Buy Organic". Would this be any different if they were frozen? I use them daily in my smoothies and Trader Joe's has a great "Fancy Berry Blend" that I like to... (more)
Since I'm not a coffee drinker, and don't know much about coffee, I figured I'd ask if it's safe, as nutritious, and ok to toss in 10 whole coffee beans into my vitamix smoothie? I am curious if whole coffee beans are like garlic in that it needs... (more)

How about a mint chocolate chip one: coconut milk, avocado, cocoa powder, mint extract/fresh mint/dried mint, vanilla extract if you choose, sweetener if you choose. Or a sweet potato nut pie one, like my husband made the other day, if you're ok... (more)
My mother-in-law just got a new Vitamix blender. She and my wife make shakes for breakfast. Both of them are trying to eat healthier. I'd like to know if their shakes are indeed healthy, if they should be doing this everyday, and what could make... (more)
I'm trying to lose weight, and all the recipes I have come across use banana, and I only want to use low fructose fruits (berries). I know all protein or all fat for breakfast work "best" for weight loss, and I might use those some days, but just... (more)
1/2 avocado, handful spinach or kale, 1/2-1 banana, 4-5 strawberries, 1tblsp flax, approximately 2/3 C coconut milk or until desired thickness. You can substitute any berry for the banana instead. This is so yummy.
Hi all, I'm new to paleo, and excited about the things it can do to help my digestive problems. I pretty much have the palate of a five-year-old though, so learning to love vegetables is certainly going to be a struggle I'll have to ease into.... (more)
Hey guys, I've been paleo for around 3 months now. My current weight is 70kg and I'm 161cm tall I've been in ketosis for 5 days and intend on staying in it for 7 weeks I've been craving a banana smoothie all day and I'm just wondering if it's... (more)
I say just go for it. Eating it after a workout will have the least impact, but seriously we are talking about ONE banana here there are far worse things you could be eating instead.
I was reading: http://www.radiancenutrition.com/2011/08/19/put-down-that-kale-smoothie-why-you-should-cook-your-food/ And it made the point that cooking veggies makes them more bio available because: "Destruction of cell walls in vegetables... (more)

In this study by Hashim, which I've seen cited on blogs a few times, the obese subjects spontaneously reduced calories and lost substantial bodyfat when restricted to a smoothie of sorts ??? specifically, a liquid formula that was nutritionally... (more)
To quote the inimitable Melissa McEwen, "Smoothies are just diluted baby food." I recommend against them. Maybe this isn't helpful, but you really shouldn't be drinking your calories.
Just saw the other thread on juicing veggies, and it really got me thinking about busting out the ol' Vitamix that I spent $400 on at the Del Mar fair. I don't want to 'juice' veggies as the other post describes. I want to put the whole thing in... (more)
