    • Hi, Daphnique56. Banana is not included in our five foods. We actually encourage it! Perhaps the confusion is from one of the images the webtool assigns to our link, which is a banana (for whatever reason). The five foods are all those that are overly processed, so fresh fruit is definitely not represented.

  1. I’m surprised to see the recommendation for whole flax seeds. It’s my understanding that flax seed should be ground in order to get the benefit as the seed coat is not digestible and will likely be passed while in stool. I alway grind my flax seed.

    • Hi, Cgoeins. The Nutribullet (and similar appliances) grind all of the content, including the flaxseeds, to a highly digestible consistency. We recommend to start with whole flaxseeds so as to preserve the nutritional value and prevent oxidation up until just seconds before consumption. For this reason, we also recommend storing them in the refrigerator or freezer until grinding and eating/drinking.

    • Hi, meccadalton. This recipe is not keto “as is,” but you can make it keto by replacing the berries and banana with a cup of non-starchy raw vegetable (such as tomato and/or cucumber) and a tablespoon of nut butter (such as peanut or almond).

    • Hi, Annie, and welcome! If you use the personal version of the Menu Planner application (access it by clicking on the “My Food Choices” icon in the toolbar above your current menu), you will see some of our recipes in the “Recipes” subcategory of each major food group. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match to work.

  2. I have porage oats for breakfast I put raisins in the bowl 1/2 a cup of oats and a cup of fluid made up with up of 1/2 semi skimmed milk and 1/2 a cup of water which I cook in the microwave.
    When cookee I top with a handful of blue berries

    • Hi, dmswenson52. Almond milk is fine if it is unsweetened; ideally, it also wouldn’t have carageenan, but that is a more individual thing. To substitute for banana, you can try either other starchy fruits (apple, pear) or other high-potassium fruits (pear, orange, papaya, mango, apricots, melon, prune, fig, persimmon, guava, pomegranate).

  3. Are there more recipes for smoothies? I love them and need to get one a day in. I usually use 1/2 a banana 1 c of strawberries 1 c of yogurt and water. I will add a little stevia for sweetness. I’m loving this community !

  4. My husband and I have just started and so pleased to hear we can still have our morning smoothie for breakfast which I make the night before and store in fridge we use spinach, chia seeds, coconut oil, banana and either pineapple or strawberries or mango ?
