Dragon fruit aka Pitaya is the main ingredient in this summer smoothie. I love smoothies for many reasons - they are simple, quick to prepare and provide you with all the neccessary balanced nutrients. Unless you are on a "zero-carb" diet, they're great for breakfast or as a pre-workout meal as part of TKD.

Why is Dragon Fruit good for you…

Dragon Fruit comes from Central and South America and has been also grown in Asia. Its bright colours, beautiful texture and delicate sweet taste make this fruit perfect for preparing desserts or smoothies. They are similar in flavour to melons or kiwi fruit. Dragon fruit is not only fun to eat, but it is also rich in nutrients - it's a good source of:

  • Vitamins: vitamin C (known as antioxidant protecting cells from free radical damage), B vitamins (skin health, carbohydrate metabolism and appetite control)
  • Minerals: calcium, iron, potassium and phosphorus

And how many carbs are there in one dragon fruit (100g / 3.5 oz)? One small dragon fruit has just 9g of net carbs, 1 g of fiber and only 60 calories! If eaten in moderation, it's on the list of fruits that are recommended along with berries and melons.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
