  1. Hi Nikki,
    I am really interested in finding out more about your green smoothies. I am 30 and suffered a stroke almost exactly 2 months after you did. I am still REALLY tired and your description on the stroke foundation blog around going out, your confidence and social shyness is EXACTLY what I am going through right now. I have also really struggled with food/warfarin and am so scared to eat anything because my INR is always all over the place – if your free I’d really love to talk to you about your smoothies because I feel like I’ve hit a brick wall with my recovery. I am so hopeful green smooties can change this! Feel free to have a squiz at my new blog to get some more detail about my story and if your free drop me a line via email or FB (I’ve ‘liked you’ so hopefully you can access me that way if you prefer). Thanks for sharing your story!
