What is the perfect smoothie? Listen in as Carolyn explores smoothie ingredients and shares the recipe for her favourite green smoothie. Based on Food as Medicine some of the ingredients might surprise you!
In this episode Carolyn shares how switching to buying Organic Vegetables and some fruit is adding value to her family life, a positive mindset and a more mindful approach to life. Carolyn talks about sourcing them locally and online, budgeting and how the variety is like foraging in an ancestral health model. Listen and learn about the value that eating organic is having on a family dominated with health issues, juggling fussy eating children and a husband who is learning to eat a larger volume of vegetables rather than quickly eating his meal. It is a change in habits, mindset and a different approach to life in general.
