Breast Cancer, hurts. Being unhealthy, hurts.
So, here’s a shake that can help you with BOTH. From the highly educated mind of Dr. Patrick Quillin, PhD, RD, CNS and former vice-president of nutrition for a national network of cancer hospitals from 1990-2000…yeah, yeah, yeah…we get it: he knows his shit….HERE is the the Dragonslayer shake (it even comes with a cool name).
- 4-8 ounces of rice milk or dilute fruit juice, including apple, cranberry, orange, fresh-squeezed, juice extracted, etc. Or add twice the specified water to a can of unsweetened concentrated apple juice.
- 10-15 grams of powdered protein (listed in order of preference): ImmunoPower, whey, soy, alfalfa, egg white, non-fat yogurt solids, & spirulina. *Do NOT use powdered proteins that are based on non-fat milk solids.
- A powdered formula with a combination of Acidophilus and Eliminease or its equivalent). The mix should include a fiber, an herbal laxative, proper bacteria for colonizing the intestines, and botanicals for detoxification. A powdered mix with all of this can be found in the Colon Care section of your health food store.
- One sliced, ripe banana or less, depending on how thick you like your shake.
- 2-4 grams of buffered high dose vitamin C powder
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil
**If you hate measuring as much as me, one scoop full for the powders, will do just fine.
- Use a blender….(duh)…
- First add the oils to coat the bottom of the container for easy mixing and cleaning.
- Add the powdered ingredients & cut up fruit
- Blend until smooth, or about 15 seconds
This shake has been mother tested & mother approved (huge victory!). In fact, she even noticed an improvement in how she felt when drinking the shake on days after she had radiation therapy. It is also, ME tested & ME approved, made with orange juice, it tastes almost like a creamsicle.
P.S. For those of you wondering what ImmunoPower is, it is a scientifically-formulated nutrition supplement designed to bolster “host defense mechanisms” in people who are being medically treated for cancer and hay fever relief. It’s also just goddamn good for the everyday person. BUT, at $109/canister, my recommendations go out to only those of our readers with cancer/hay fever. For the rest of us, whey protein powder–is the WAY to go.
