    Thank you, Erin! Sounds delicious.
    Do you recommend any particular brand for blenders? In your opinion, are $400 and up blenders worth it? Thanks!

      Personally I have and Oster Blender that I bought at Canadain Tire. It blends spinach and cabbage really well, but Kale is harder. Many of my raw food connections highly recommend the BlendTech or Viatmix.

      Happy blending!

    Hi, i hear there’s supposed to be a tad of oil such as coconut or flax or seeds in every meal or snack? i might be doing smaller meals throughout the day so trying to make sure each one is balanced do you think i should add it?

    • IHI Team says:

      Hi Lucie,

      Yes adding healthy fats to your smoothie is a great idea. Coconut oil and/or ground flax seeds would be a great addition.
      Keep up the great work!
