The author of the blog you referred to had responded to my article on green smoothies but unfortunately she didn’t really answer my question (the max intake of GS for healthy people) instead she seemed to have made up her mind not to even want to TRY GS ‘ever!’ and said that GS diet was only a SCAM.
A pity, I had actually expected more objective and scientific view from such a well known author. 🙁
I therefore wrote to Oe1 Radio Station and asked them if they would be interested in producing a show focusing on this smoothie diet 🙄 which could shed on a light on this matter 💡

It is a great way to get the veg in.
I love my GS, am doing great on them, there are always haters out there, especially if you want to eat healthy “Oh look at her having a salad, gone vegetarian,,ooooo, eating raw, who does she think she is “
Have a look at Mimi Kirk, worlds sexiest vegetarian over 50, at age 72! on you tube, it will definitely swing you over to the ‘good side’

How long have you been on this Green-Smoothie Diet, Helli, if you don’t mind me asking?
What do you think about the side effects of oxalic acid people worry about?
I love my GS, am doing great on them
Could you elaborate more on this?
Thanks in advance,

Well my daughter makes them a lot and we are not on the GS diet , we have a green smoothy every day along with a vegetarian (almost vegan) diet.
She is doing it for health purposes and she has problems with allergies, I am trying to get the goodness in, I am not worried about these problems you talk about. I suppose everything in moderation, I certainly wouldn’t refuse a vitamin full, healthy drink !July 30, 2012 at 3:25 pm #2111pelaMember
Casandra I’m a registered nutritional consultant. You can overcome the oxalic acid effect by mixing in fresh lemon juice when you juice greens that are high in oxalic acid. It helps break down the OA and allows the body to absorb all the minerals (calcium etc) from the veg.
Green smoothies are indeed an excellent idea, but i don’t promote them as an exclusive food to focus on. They should just be part of an overall balanced healthy diet.August 2, 2012 at 8:18 am #2119
Hi Finners, sorry to have mistaken your name 😳
Pella & Helli thank you for your answers.:grin:
I drink green smoothies as much amount as that I usually eat raw.
BTW somebody asked me the following:
Do you happen to know if there have been any studies considering the changing of the size and the shape of molecules after blending (e.g. in the case of green smoothies?)
