My Anti-Constipation Smoothie

I've been constipated all my life :-) seriously. Almost all of my special diet and all the food I take revolves around combating constipation.  It's not easy to be constipated.  Aside from causing me physical stress, straining my gut and ripping my butt hole until it bleeds, it also made me psychologically imbalance also :D  it made me grumpy.  Everytime I had mood swings before or was irritable or easily annored, my husband always assume that I am constipated and will "order" me to defecate at once.  Well that was then :-) I am constipation free for more than half of the year now.  No laxatives, no enemas, no surgery. Thanks to a good diet and exercise :-)

Here is one delicious remedy I can suggest for those who are constipated.  You will run to the toilet after an hour of having this :-) And after seeing the ingredient, do not complain.  Taste it and see the effect first.   Make sure that you take this on an empty stomach.  That is upon rising or at least 1 hour before any meal or after 4 hours after eating anything. These breakfast smoothie supplies me with almost half of the dietary fiber I need for the day
