Morning Glory

I love me a good smoothie! I wish I had a secret minion that would invade my kitchen while I’m sleeping and make me a fresh one to have every morning. Unfortunately, I don’t have one (yet) so I usually just end up throwing a bunch of greens and fruits into the blender and hope it tastes yummy. This morning I was doing just that and decided to take some pictures. It’s my favorite go-to. You will need the following ingredients (organic if you can):

  • Spinach – 2 handfuls
  • Frozen mango (or fresh) – 2 tablespoons
  • Frozen banana – 1
  • Lemon – half
  • Coconut water – enough to get the blender going
  • Hemp powder/seeds (or chia seeds) – 1 tablespoon
  • Ginger root – small chunk

I don’t eat meat and rarely eat animal products so for me I have to go an extra step to get some key things in my diet. I love the spinach and hemp powder for protein, the fruits for vitamin C and potassium and the ginger for digestion and reduced inflammation. The most important thing of all is that you actually enjoy it. Play around with different ingredients and find what works for you. The last thing you want to do is be gulping down food that doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Food should taste good, make you feel good and be a positive time of nourishment. Drink slow and enjoy!

Cheers friends,
Ash

(side note: my breakfast does not always consist of a nice green healthy smoothie. While most mornings it does, other days I end up eating an avocado with a spoon, peanut butter and banana, or an everything bagel with tomato and avocado (hello saturday!). It’s truly all about balance, but you already know that ;] )
