The Cancer Fighting Smoothie
A smoothie is a great way to get in some extra nutrients and fill you up as a mid-day snack. However, you’ve never had one as powerful and nutrient dense as this one.
This smoothie is packed with leafy greens from the microgreen broccoli and the baby spinach, but it’s flavor is sweet and nutty due to the added medjool dates, fruits, and hemp seeds. Outside of flavor though, this smoothie is incredible due to its anti-cancer properties. It’s high in antioxidants and sulforaphane which are two of the best known properties for fighting off cancer cells.
For the times you’re craving something sweet but want nothing other than great health benefits.
