Today is a great day, because later Andrew and I will be heading to Charlotte to see Delbert McClinton at the Neighborhood Theatre! We are going to dance the night away with some really great friends. Can't wait! I promise to come back with full details.
On a side note, along with getting back into yoga, I have started reading "The Beauty Detox Solution" by Kimberly Snyder.
I don't agree with everything she has to say, BUT I do appreciate learning about what certain foods do for my energy, body, and skin. Furthermore, she also talks about food pairings and how to choose certain foods together to optimize nutrients and benefits. Above all, I am totally in love with Snyder's "Glowing Green Smoothie" recipe. It takes a bit to adjust to the taste, but the more I practiced, the better it got. Basically, the recipe calls for water, romaine lettuce, spinach, celery, apple, pear, banana, lemon juice, and I personally add fresh ginger. I chop up all the stuff and put as much as I can into my Magic Bullet container. Snyder uses a heavy duty juicer, which no doubt makes everything super smooth. However, my Magic Bullet processor does a good enough job.
I start my day with this smoothie and it makes me feel great. It's definitely a power-packed drink and makes it easy to get all of those nutrients in one sitting. I will keep you posted on my progress as I continue to make daily changes to my diet.
Sorry today is short, I have lots to do before date night in the big city!
