Guest Post: Sherry Pollex’s Favorite Wellness Smoothie

Wellness plays a huge part of Ovarian Cancer survivor Sherry Pollex’s life. Along with practices like meditation, yoga, and exercise, Sherry also places a large emphasis on diet and nutrition. Today we’re sharing one of Sherry’s favorite smoothie recipes. Smoothies are a great way to easily pack in vitamins, calories, and healthy fats into an on-the-go recipe. You can find more wellness tips and inspiration on Sherry’s website, SherryStrong.Org. Along with her site, Sherry is a founder of the MTJ Foundation, where she focuses on “supporting underfunded cancer initiatives specific to ovarian and childhood cancers, and assisting the individuals and families affected by them.”

From Sherry Pollex:

“I make a green smoothie with fruit in the morning for it’s amazing nutritional punch! The berries and kale/spinach provide lot of beneficial antioxidants, fiber and Vitamin A and K for everyone, not just cancer survivors! I always use unsweetened coconut or almond milk since my diet is dairy free. I often add hemp seeds, chia seeds and pea protein for their incredible health benefits!”

“Nutrition is the single most important aspect of our lives when it comes to taking care of our bodies. Would you feed your car old, expired oil to keep it running in top condition?! Most would say No! Then why would you feed your body processed junk food that has a shelf life of 75 days! Eating fresh fruits and vegetables and organic, grass fed animal proteins is the basis of my diet. It’s what keeps me feeling well everyday and helps fight my cancer. I chose to eat diary-free, refined sugar free and gluten free because that is what makes me feel best. Everyone’s body is different. Find what’s right for your body and stick to it! You will thank me later, I promise!”
