Can anyone suggest some super foods or recipes/ideas to help with-
1. Recovering from knee surgery( I had pins removed from my knee from a injury I had 2 years ago)
I should be ok to start training again in 2 weeks but for now my knee is stiff and my body feels like there is poison in it from the anesthesia. Need to help it repair and detox!!!!!
2. I have symtoms of a cold, probably from the anesthesia running my body down.
Any advice would be great : )

In the Eastern medicines, post injury/surgery would focus on cleansing and support of the liver, kidneys and blood, as they take the brunt of delivering and cleaning up during and after the 'rebuilding'. Healing is a lot like renovating your house. You have to make sure you have all the materials needed to finish the job and it's messy so a little extra clean up will help the process go smoothly.
Vega WFHO would be a good source for complete vit and min support. Outside that maybe make a meal of another green smoothie. Kale, spinach, dandelion and some sea veg like, Chlorella, Spirulina and Kelp would be very beneficial. Lots of chlorophyl to keep the blood clean would improve recovery. Plus drink a pot of green tea daily, its total systemic support would be benficial aswell.
Possibly most important would be your emotions. Your MIND must feel happy with the healing process for it to go well. Indulge a little! EG: Find a bar of Green and Blacks dark chocolate and a carton of nice strawberries and have this for dinner once this week:) Reward your suffering and you will become stronger!
All the best!
