It's now an accepted medical fact that the nutrients in certain fruits and vegetables make them "super foods" because they are the highest in the vitamins and other nutrients that naturally build and maintain our immune systems. Within this book are the top recipes for special smoothies, including a delicious assortment of foods and flavors. They only take minutes to prepare, and are packed with the vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that fight autoimmune disorders. Smoothies --frosty, thick, luscious drinks--are a way that all members of the family can gleefully boost their nutrition and maintain strong immune systems, and Power Smoothies is a mini-book that allows them to do so deliciously.
