What do you thinking about adding plain greek yogourt to my smoothie, as a source of protein? (No added sugar)

SGS Rawkstar 1.20.2016 - 4:38 am

Hi Mariana,

Thanks for reaching out! Non-fat Greek yogurt is a great option when looking to give your smoothie a protein boost! We personally prefer to avoid soy and animal products, but that’s just our personal preference; if you enjoy dairy, feel free to add it to your smoothie creations.

Check out more of our favorite protein options here…

Cheers 🙂

I think the abundance of vitamin k in kale is why it is supposed to be cooked in boiling water for 7 minutes before you use it, especially if you are eating it often.

Hey Pamela.

We suggest our community rotates their leafy greens. 🙂

All raw leafy greens carry a small amount of toxins that protect plants from being entirely consumed by other animals—and wiping out the plant species. It’s a defensive trait, and something even we should be aware of. As humans, if we consume these toxins for long periods of time, they can build up and harm our thyroid. Some symptoms of alkaloid buildup are nausea, tingling in finger tips and fatigue. But before you dump your green smoothie down the drain, you should know that this isn’t anything to worry about as long as you are rotating your greens. Throughout the week, use a variety of leafy greens in your smoothies— like kale, spinach, romaine, herbs and carrot tops.
