Smoothies are a wonderful way to get nutritious foods into your system, especially for kids.  I've listed some of my smoothie recipes to show how easy it is to throw some of your favorite fruits and vegetables together to come up with delicious recipes.

*Flax seeds are one of the most powerful and versatile foods on the planet. They have a hard, shiny shell that is a little larger than a sesame seed and range in color from brown to gold. They have a subtle nutty flavor. Flax seeds can be purchased as a seed or an oil at your local health food store.

No other plant on this earth comes close. You can purchase whole hemp seeds, hulled hemp seeds, hemp seed protein powder and hemp oil.
