Hi guys. I'm Kelly. I'm new here!
I'm a newbie and I have a question I'm hoping you all could shed some light on.
First: I've been pescatarian for 2 years and I work out regularly; doing so helped me get in shape and drop a bunch of weight. I'm attempting to add more raw foods to my diet, and I thought green smoothies were a good place to start.
My boyfriend and I have had a green smoothie in the morning every day for the past 4 days. He is fine but I've had lots of issues. At first, I was terribly constipated (sorry TMI, but I dont know whats going on!) and now I find whenever I have them, I get horrendous heartburn and sour stomach all day. I don't understand- I feel like eating more greens should do the exact opposite of what's happening to me.
I feel like the smoothies are definitely giving me more energy (which I love) but my stomach and intestines are hating them, it seems
Has anyone had a similar issue? Or any idea why my body has decided to do the exact opposite than one would think?
The first day it was:
1/2 a Banana
Pineapple Chunks (less because I thought this could've been the heartburn culprit)
A little bit of baby spinach
Almond Milk/Coconut Milk (I was finishing the leftovers)
Raw Cocao Powder
The fourth day was DELICIOUS! but it seemed to create the worst heartburn.
Thank you for any insight any of you may have
