    • Dorine Lam RDN says:

      I always believe in moderation even if the food is very good for you. So drink once a day. You can always veried the vegetables and fruit if you want to drink more.

  • Mattie says:

    Great smooth do drink all that in one setting/if not how do you save it do you freeze it

    • Newsletter says:

      Oxidants contained in the smoothie decay quickly with time. A 30 minute block time is tolerable. If you can drink all in one setting, its better but for some people with AFS, it can be too much, in which case you have to slow down up to a few hours and zip slowly. For these weak people that is ok as too “strong” can crash the adrenal system.
