All That Green Smoothie & Yoga Practice

Today’s smoothie is all green and all good.  Great way to start your day and get you going.

Smoothie Green

1 Cup Organic Kale

1 Cup Chopped Organic Celery

1 Green Apple

1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds

1 Inch Piece of Organic Ginger

1 Cup Coconut Water

FOOD KEY

– Kale: vitamins, A, B6 &C, potassium, copper, folic acid, calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and zinc (MEGA-STACKED!!)

– Celery: potassium, folic acid and vitamins C & B6

– Apples: potassium, vitamin C and pectin (helps control cholesterol and blood sugar)

– Chia Seeds: omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, calcium, phosphorous and magnesium

– Ginger: stimulates digestion, combats flatulence (NICE!) and is effective against colds 

– Coconut Water: improves digestion and metabolism, supports immune system

For today’s quick workout, I went with old favorite.  This is the first yoga routine I ever tried from Sadie Nardini, a/k/a the Rock Star of Yoga.  It’s not only a great full body practice, but is also only about 15 minutes.  Seems short, but you really feel it everywhere when you are done.
