Carrot Apple Ginger Smoothie & Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee) Workout

Carrot Apple Ginger is a popular juice recipe, so I figured I give it a try as a smoothie.  I used Flax milk for the first time as a liquid base, added some raw sunflower seeds for extra texture, cinnamon powder for a hint of sweetness and some kale for you know, health.  I enjoyed it, hope you will too.

Jeet Kune Do Workout

Today’s workout is a classic body weight only routine I found on the @JeetKuneDoAcademy Instagram page.  Jeet Kune Do was the martial art invented and taught originally by Bruce Lee.  If you’ve ever seen a picture of Bruce Lee, you know he was in pretty decent shape.  Now I’m not saying that drinking this smoothie and doing this workout will get you in Bruce Lee shape, but I am not saying it won’t :).  I went for 5 sets the first time I tried this workout.  Go for 10.
