Smoothies for Health.
I’ve given this particular section a lot of thought. I’m always very nervous about making any particular health claims without seeing strong evidence to back them up.
The internet is a minefield of unsubstantiated claims and unsupported “facts”. Anyone can create a blog like this and assert just about anything they want. I really don’t think that helps people that are genuinely searching for solutions to real issues. In fact it just confuses people and makes finding the truth that much harder.
I initially decided to steer away from making any health based recommendations. However, there is overwhelming evidence that some health benefits are genuine.
So, this section is going to include a series of recipes, with full citations and references, that address particular heath issues.
These recipes take a lot longer to create than the others – the Daily Calcium Booster took me two days to fully research and get right. I really want to try and make them genuinely useful as well as delicious!
A strong word of caution though. I’m not a doctor, nor have I been formally trained in nutrition. So please take these recipes for what they are – a genuine attempt to put together some ideas that may help you in your search for better health.
