GREEN SMOOTHIES

Or how to get more greens into your life…

Green is the colour of life, of health, of freshness and we all want to acquire its values. Green is chlorophyll, green is oxygen and green in plants is extremely nutrient dense. There is no doubt, we should all eat more greens. Some of the biggest and strongest mammals on earth are living on a diet based on greens and fruits. And most likely they’re not wondering where do they take their protein from. The animal flesh consumed today comes from animals which feed on greens and grasses (or so they are designed to do, but sadly, it is not the case any more in industrial farming).

Why not cut the “middle-man” and choose to eat the real deal ourselves as well?

I am one of those lucky ones that have family in a sunny country. My parents live in Barcelona and every few months I have a blood line excuse to book a trip to Spain. I love them to bits!

This holiday one of my goals was to introduce my family to green smoothies. My parents are feeling the effects of too much acid and inflammation in their bodies and I’m trying to find a way to open the wonderful world of blending and juicing to them.

I have been going mental for the past week over the trampoline my neighbours just got and invited me to use whenever I wish. Awesome, right?

To put it into perspective rebounding, or jumping on the trampoline is a great way to put your lymph system into movement and remove the dead cells from your body.It’s also fantastic to reconnect with your inner child :) I always go crazy when I’m on one of them! That’s the most amazing thing: it makes you feel good straight away putting you into a peak state.

Have you been having the sniffles lately? Besides lots of good sleep, which is the most important thing you can do, here’s a natural boost to help you overcome it or keep you from catching it. And as the sunshine keeps delighting us with slightly warmer temperatures, expect that running nose to be crying for help. But this is all good – you’re in tune with the season transition and getting ready to rid yourself from winter and slowly, gently, jump into glorious spring!

If you feel a bit under the weather increase the natural ‘immunisers’ – your body will be forever very grateful! And even if you don’t. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here’s to an awesome week!
In this recipe it’s all about generosity!

This speaks summer at its best. Bursting with flavour raspberry, fragrant basil and a good dose of nature and sun. Use frozen bananas for the ultimate creaminess!  

Ingredients:

-1 handful kale
-2 handful raspberries(fresh or frozen)
-1 banana
-4 leaves basil
-2 spoons hemp seeds

How to:

Add the kale first then the rest of the ingredients, pour water half way through and blend until the Gods of Creaminess decide it’s enough :) Enjoy!

To your health!
