Peaches & Cream Smoothie.

It’a osteoporosis awareness month.. a disease I honestly did not know a lot about. Upon some research I learned that it affects up to 55% of women over the age of 50.  Yikes! It only makes sense to take preventative action.

I’m all about taking vitamins regularly (and eating as much of a balanced diet as possible). Having an autoimmune disease (and now keeping it in remission) I have found that its extremely important to make sure my body is getting all the vitamins and minerals that it requires to function best. This supports my immune system and helps to keep the balance that I need to feel good.

I am a huge, huge fan of Wellesse Liquid Vitamins. HUGE. If you have seen my previous smoothie and beverage recipes you already know how much I love their multi vitamin. Having Hashimotos I have to be cautious of my iodine intake and their multi is one of the ONLY ones I have found on the market that is free of iodine. Plus, all of their vitamins are certified gluten free (and almost all sugar free/stevia sweetened as well too!)

Upon learning about the prevalence of osteoporosis I figured it might be good to add some calcium to my naturally I tried the Wellesse Calcium & Vitamin D3 supplement.  Its citrus flavored (and tastes really good!) I have been drinking it in this smoothie almost every day the last few weeks!

This smoothie is simple to throw together and refreshing! Bet you didn’t know that taking vitamins could be a delicious experience :)

This looks wonderful! Can’t wait for the fresh peaches to start coming in. I’m a bit confused by your comment about iodine and Hashimotos, though. I also have Hashimotos, and have been told to get MORE iodine into my diet. I am 56 and was diagnosed with osteoporosis a few years ago when i fell and broke both bones in my arm. I was told at the time it was because of the synthroid I take…it leaches the calcium from your bones, so I take calcium supplements along with Vit D (and have for years) and now everything I read online is against taking calcium. It’s all so confusing. Could I ask where you got your info, so I can have a look? Thanks and thanks for the great recipe!

Hi Lisa!

This is my resource. I followed this doctors protocols and by doing so I was able to heal both my leaky gut and put my hashi’s into remission:

Additionally, I noticed that iodine made me feel terrible and revved my hashi’s up. I have to be cautious about taking chlorella, eating kelp noodles, seaweed etc. (and straight iodine) as they all seem to feed into an autoimmune flare up for me.

The belief is that iodine is great for those that are NOT autoimmune. (so if you are just hypo without the autoimmune portion of the disease that I have.) But that if you are autoimmune that iodine can cause problems.

Now that I am in remission I seem to be less sensitive- but I can tell you that when I was at my sickest iodine really did a number on me.

What brand of non-dairy yogurt do you recommend?


Brittany May 31, 2013 at 8:57 pm

Depends – If you would like almond yogurt I like the brand “Amande”. If coconut then I suggest “SO Delicious”.

Just because of you I am using Wellesse Calcium & Vitamin D. Thanks for all the great ideas.
