Hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a blast in SoCal...even though I got sick the first day we were there. Been sick for days since then. Sucks. Not that I have to tell you all that- I'm sure you know what it feels like to be sick. I'm starting to finally feel better. Kind of.
Although, being sick can be a good thing. For me, it reminds me I need to slow down- eat cleaner, get more exercise, and most importantly get more sleep. Which means- I'm going to try my VERY best to eat clean again. And, what better time then Spring to do that? Anyone else interested? I realize I haven't posted any health/recipes in a long time- not sure if you are all into that sort of thing anymore?
At any rate- in my journey to feeling better, I made this smoothie that I can't get enough of.
Here's what I did:
+ handful of organic mint
+ lots of organic kale (as always, to your taste- I do a little more than half a bunch)
+ tablespoon or so of organic raw coconut butter
+ ice & water (to the consistency you like- I prefer my smoothies super, super thin- like juice so I do a lot of filtered water)
+ camu powder (for immunity)
Put all ingredients into a vitamix or blender. Blend until smooth.
Drink it while it's really cold. It's beyond refreshing. My batch made one mason jar's worth of smoothie.
