40 Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Ahh, the smoothie. It’s gotten a bad rap in the past for being a sugar-laden drink more closely resembling dessert than anything remotely healthy. But while that might be true for smoothies purchased at juice shops, you can make healthy smoothie recipes right at home for a fraction of the price in just minutes. Why do I love smoothies so much?

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite healthy smoothie recipes. Whether you want to satisfy a sweet tooth, detox with a green drink, or indulge in a chocolatey drink, I know you’ll love these recipes. IMPORTANT NOTE: I recommend using natural sweeteners like raw honey, real maple syrup or organic coconut palm sugar to ge Continue reading >>

    A month ago I had a liver profile drawn. My ALT was 136 and my AST was 110. I was taken off of Zocor for three weeks and had the liver test repeated. My ALT did not change(136) and my AST went down 10 points to 100. Should I be alarmed at this. I am not experiencing any abnormal pains. I am also doing the Atkins diet which means I am always in a state of Ketosis.

    I'm assuming you're under the care of a doctor and they are ruling out things like alcoholism, hepatitis, fatty liver?? They have other tests that can determine why the enzymes are elevated. If it is due to a medicine, I would imagine the levels should go back down after a few months unless damage occurred. Your liver is not something to mess with and I wouldn't let this rest until you find out why your LFTs are elevated. Most people with some liver diseases don't feel pain, ie nonalcoholic steatohepatitis like I have. Sometimes people even get to the point of cirrhosis before having any symptoms. I do know however, that my nutritionist said NOT to do atkins with liver probs, that ketosis was NOT good for the liver. So what you do is up to you-
