  1. Thank you for the recipes. Some thing I’ve been wondering for sometime, and I hope you can shed light on… Does consuming a lot of powdered products aggravate Vater! I agree that smoothies can be high and sugar, or not as beneficial as Whole Foods, depending on the ingredients. I make mine with coconut water, and add a lot of powdered ingredients. Super foods, protein powder, ETc. Am I unnecessarily aggravating devote to Docia this way? Appreciate any insight you care to share!
