That might be something you would enjoy. Have a great day :)

The coconut oil adds just a hint of flavor. The flax you can taste a little bit. It doesn't give it an oily texture though. The flax oil is especially good after a workout as it speeds up recovery. I need get in the habit again of using chia seeds in pre workout smoothies. I heard about the coconut/almond milk combo.... haven't tried it yet. Also.... if you do any chocolate smoothies the flax oil goes well with them.

Ahh, okay. I have been adding hemp seeds to my smoothies and chia seeds to my post-workout meal (usually oatmeal and occasionally a protein shake if I am limited for time). So far I am digging the Coconut/almond milk combo. :) I am not sure I can do the oils because they seem to upset my stomach, but I figure if I add ground flaxseed and hemp seeds to stuff I am getting about the same benefit, I hope. I still have yet to try coconut oil and I really want to just because it looks like it makes stuff yummy, just not sure about how it will do with my stomach. Good to know it doesn't make smoothies oily though. Thanks :)

Hey Jon! Awesome job with your journaling this past month! Got your email request to have your journal reviewed for prize eligibility. (I'm a VB&F team member.) You've done such a great job! Hope you'll be feeling back to healthy soon! Stomach flu, head cold = NO FUN! Feel better!

All the best,
Karen
