Energy boosting smoothie for chemo and radiation
Something I struggled with during #chemo was the extreme drop in my energy levels - a walking zombie if you like. Half way through my treatment I purchased The Cancer Fighting Kitchen by Katz which had a ton of recipes to help with every kind of symptom you experience during treatment.
One that truly saved my little lethargic soul was the Chocolate Banana Smoothie. And ladies, if you're on a menopause inducing implant, this helps big time with the hot flushes (those flushes are something else aren't they!)
YOU WILL NEED
A blender or bullet
3 cups of nut milk, any kinds (I strongly suggest you cut out dairy during treatment)
2 frozen bananas - bananas are a huge supporter for the heart during chemo/radiation and give a boost of energy
2 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder - super food, tick!
1.5 tablespoons of almond butter or any nut butter
1 tablespoon of ground flax seed - an anti-cancer super seed
1/2 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup
1 pitted date - great for liver support
pinch of sea salt
Add all the ingredients into your blender or bullet and blend away till smooth. I can already see the smile on your face once this liquid gold hits your lips. You'll feel instant relief I promise.
Thanks Rebecca Katz for this awesome book!
