I'm not really a smoothie person, but maybe I just haven't been putting in the right ingredients. Thanks for the post!

Thanks ANI. I actually like my whey protein. I just had a smoothie with Greek yogurt, coconut milk, banana and whey protein. I've just found out that I am most likely insulin resistant (pcos)and my diet consists of 170 grams of protein per day. So, I need a lot more protein than the norm. My protein powder is cold filtered and from grass fed cows with no hormones. Nothing else added. So, I'm ok with that.
I have often been uncomfortable using a refined powdered protein powder--just didn't seem like a real food to me. Maybe some of you are concerned too. Here's great ideas on how to raise the protein level in your own, homemade smoothies using real food. Naturally, the nutrition factor will go up too!
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
