My daughter Katie is expecting her third baby. This will be the first pregnancy that she has not had to take iron suppliments...which she attributes to her green smoothies. Pretty amazing! :D Happy and green.

I find when I don't eat very many greens, my iron goes below normal and I can't donate blood. Once I increase my greens my iron goes up.
Ummmmmm . . . . last time I tried to donate, my iron was too low . . . . guess I better increase those greens!!!!!
I'm so happy for your daughter that she doesn't have to take the iron supplements!!! Hope her pregnancy goes well. Sounds like she knows that her diet will depend a lot on how her pregnancy goes and the health of her baby.

i've also noticed that my hands and feet aren't as cold ... could it really be due to a daily green smoothie? going to bed with hot feet is new to me and taking some getting used to.

I know greens are really important for me. I was anemic and had a low hematocrit until I started on wheatgrass juice, sprouts, blue green algae, lots of greens, etc.

I found that the more raw I go, the warmer my hands and feet have become. I eat mostly fruits (when I'm raw) and small amounts of greens. I'm wondering if just eating raw does this for me, or the fact that I'm not eating cooked processed foods that allows my body to warm up properly. In any case, what I'm doing is working, so I'll continue with striving for all raw. I do have to say, though, my iron does seem to go up when I incorporated a little bit more of greens in my diet.
I have some avocados that are just now ripe. I will make some avocado wraps today!!!! I don't get as much greens from making wraps from them, but at least I'm getting some greens :D
