I also urge our patients to consume healthy smoothies that they prepare at home on a regular basis. Most of these recipes include soy milk, nonfat yogurt, berries such as blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries, bananas, and a raw egg, plus a couple of tablespoons of flaxseed oil and whey protein. Many patients consider such smoothies delicious, and they’re also good for digestion.
