Anti-Alzheimer's Smoothie

Maria Shriver was a guest on the Dr. Oz show today and she's been working to combat Alzheimer's. One of the suggestions during the show was to look at diet which has more affect on the brain than most people realize.
She starts each day with a nutritious smoothie:

Update: The smoothie, although nutritious, was not pleasant to drink. I would suggest using all the ingredients different ways. Eat the spinach in a salad (or add to scrambled eggs in the morning), eat the berries either on their own or in Greek yogurt, add cinnamon to either tea or coffee, and sprinkle the turmeric on vegetables or meat for your evening meal (or you can buy turmeric in supplement form)

Nutrient Rich Smoothie
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup mixed berries
1/8 teasp. turmeric
1/4 teasp. cinnamon
3-4 drops MCT oil
1/2 cup water

Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth

More info about MCT oil at Wellness Mama

Long story short: (from Wellness Mama.com)
  • For fast and lasting energy, concentrated MCT oil is more beneficial
  • For Lauric acid and its immune benefits, coconut oil is the superstar
