When patients first visit my office, I always make it my business to find out not only about their health histories and lifestyle habits, but also what they eat. Fortunately, these days patients are more knowledgeable about nutrition than they were even 5 or 10 years ago, so that makes the job of turning their health around a bit easier. However, many people still have some rather retro ideas about what’s a health food and what’s not, so I and my Be Well nutrition team often have to engage in some re-education, to guide patients on their journey to sustainable and optimal health.

I know you know that I think smoothies are the greatest thing since sliced bread (gluten-free of course!). Usually my smoothies do not contain fruit, I prefer adding greens like kale and our Phyto Greens powder instead. However, when winter rolls around, I love to make this Ginger Pear Smoothie, it's got a great kick from the ginger which is balanced by the sweetness of the pear. It's rich and creamy and every sip tastes like a treat!
