sugar-free green smoothie

Today, May 12th, is the International ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) Awareness Day. ME/CFS is the chronic illness from which I am recovering my health and my life. Being healthy is a vehicle, not a destination, and your health will enable or disable you. That is why I am passionate about sharing what I've learnt so far on my journey to better health. My desire is for you to experience better health too. If you want to learn more about this misunderstood illness then check out this link. And then, check out my sugar-free green smoothie recipe below - perfect for anyone with fructose malabsorption or following a low-to-no-sugar diet for Candidiasis!
