Day 9 of the Mindful 21 challenge & it’s all about that smoothie. I wrote yesterday about how breakfast just isn’t my thang….and it still isn’t. You have little time in the morning (especially after yoga and 5 minutes of meditation in the morning), lunch and dinner are so much cooler, and you have so many other things to do in the morning!
So, smoothies are usually my go to in the morning – they’re fast, packed with plants, and full of nutritional goodies. Today, wake up and be sure to drink at least 8 ounces sit before you meditate for 5 minutes. Then, head to the kitchen and pack the blender with the following:
1 apple (with the skin – that’s where the fiber goodness lies)
1 carrot (a big one)
1 cup of kale or spinach (kale is a bit courser – both are awesome!)1 cup of soy, almond or coconut milk
1 scoop of vegan powder or 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or 2 tablespoons of flax meal
1/2 cup of ice
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
Mix all and enjoy!
