Jane Day is co-author with Dr. John Day of "The Longevity Plan," documenting their journey to China's Longevity Village. "Preparing food for guests has always been a stressful thing - feeling inadequate and fearing that the dishes wouldn't turn out. Posting recipes has been an exercise in the ultimate confrontation of this fear. Gratefully, the joy in figuring out how to make favorite dishes with healthier ingredients now exceeds the fear and I take courage in the idea that maybe I can help someone else do the same."
So many good ingredients in this smoothie! It always helps me to know what good I am doing for my body with what I choose to eat.
Yogurt offers probiotic support, which is good for digestion and absorption of nutrients. Look for yogurt with no added sugar and one million or more live active cultures (assuming your immune system is not compromised). Yogurt’s strong protein content combined with live bacterial cultures also offers blood sugar benefits. Fermented dairy products like yogurt have been shown to decrease bone risk.
Ginger supports digestion, aids nausea, boosts immunity and is anti-inflammatory.
Spinach is super rich in vitamins and minerals. It offers anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and even omega-3s!
Peaches are a good source of vitamins A and C and fiber.
With their high levels of potassium and sterols (which block the absorption of dietary cholesterol), bananas support cardiovascular health. Even though very sweet, the banana’s Glycemic Index is quite low. They have a wonderful mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates which support endurance activities.
