Nothing like ice cream on a hot day, right? Well, unfortunately it is full of fat and sugar and lots of calories. So what do those of us who are health conscious eat on a hot summer day. Well, if it must be ice cream, then you can try some coconut ice cream (more healthy fat and less sugar), but otherwise how about a homemade fruit smoothie with some protein powder or chlorella powder in it? You can also add a little plain yogurt or almond milk. If you want to make a tasty treat for the kids you can make a smoothie and add a little extra water and then freeze into popsicles. A smoothie will also energize you. If you wish you could also juice yourself a nice energy drink with mostly vegetables and just a bit of fruit such as an apple or pear to sweeten it.

I am married and live with my husband and our 2 adult children. My oldest son is 26 and our other son is 24. The dog's name is Ginny. My oldest son was born with Down Syndrome. He is also diagnosed with a type of autism, and deafness in one ear. He had graves disease which is now in remission. My other son has Asperger's syndrome. My husband was diagnosed in 2018 with Addison's disease (rare adrenal gland autoimmune disease). So as you can imagine we have a very busy household. Recently, I was diagnosed with a thyroid condition and saw my health deteriorating and thus forced me back to examining "how did I get to this stage of health?" I have 35 years of medical background training and have researched many alternative health areas in a quest to help myself and my family. It is from this experience that I am hoping to help you come to an area of greater health in your mind, body, and spirit. View all posts by trmbl2222
