The best kind of leftovers!!! I prepped my smoothie for the morning to take with me and had an extra 8 oz leftover. Nice to share or drink as well!
As I briefly mentioned, I add different ingredients to my smoothie to keep it interesting. I always have greens (e.g. spinach or kale), fruit (e.g. berries, pineapple, mango, and more), seeds (e.g. hemp or chia) and my liquid (e.g. coconut water, almond milk, or coconut milk), and sometimes, I top it with shredded coconut.
It is drilled into us that we must stay hydrated and the best way is by drinking water. Although the food that we eat can hydrate us (read: fresh fruit and veggies), the reality is most of us do not consume enough.
Since it is important for us to drink water, why should it be tasteless? Think about it. Why do we constantly eat the things that we do? It is because we favor the taste! Let’s be honest. If something does not taste great, we aren’t going to eat or drink it.
So why not create something that is delicious and hydrates us at the same time?
Many of us may recall having a humidifier with vapor product in it when we were sick and stuffy. The warm vapor open up our little noses and help rid us of congestion.
Now, let’s put a spin on this. Keep the vapor, subtract the heat and replace the vapor product with essential oils and we get….an OIL DIFFUSER!
As James Brown said, “Get on the Good Foot!”
I believe that fueling our day through healthy food is getting on the good foot.
Look at the word, “breakfast.” I read, “break” “fast.” The first meal of the day is to break the fast that you begin after dinner and while you are asleep. Providing your body with nutritional essentials is imperative for a Warrior’s mind, body, and spirit. Mind, because a Warrior is unable to function at their highest mental capacity without healthy food, thus being sluggish, not processing properly, and sometimes getting frustrated. Body, because a Warrior’s body requires physical substance to heal, prepare, and function. Spirit, because when one is not feeling healthy/well, it can dampen a Warrior’s spirits.
