A Smoothie for Cancer?

There’s a Turkish doctor I know who swears by this concoction: he says that people who drink one a day don’t get cancer.

I can’t find any data to support or refute his claim. The recipe is very high in antioxidants.

What my wife and I have found is that if we drink two of these a day in place of breakfast and lunch, we aren’t hungry and can lose a couple of pounds per week quite easily.  It also knocks down the cost of groceries; kale is cheap.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Two cups of kale
  • Two cups of water
  • One 1-inch thick ring of pineapple (3 rings of canned pineapple)
  • One green apple including skin, cored and cubed (e.g., a Granny Smith)

Blend until smooth.

One can substitute fresh spinach for kale; kale is preferred.  Or you can mix the two for taste.

For variety, one can substitute two cups of mixed berries for the pineapple.

Bon appetit!
