I really enjoyed the surprise smoothies I had to intake yesterday. It was a Mint Cooler and an Avocado Citrus Smoothie. I got up too late to make enough smoothies as planned. I had two more than expected!
Mint Cucumber Cooler (Above)
1 large Cucumber
1 Fiji Apple
Splash of Agave
Avocado Citrus Smoothie
1 whole orange
1 tbl Agave Syrup
Add enough oxygen water* to desired consistency
Needless to say I am hungry. I will have a big Kale Salad when I get home. I will also try my hand at making pizza crusts with Nut Cheese and Basil Pesto. Tamales, Corn Chips and Fresh Salsa RAW stylie as well. I will update with pics later.
Since it is New Years Eve the above listed projects will be easy since I will be closing the store a bit early.
½ inch fresh ginger
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 tablespoon hemp seed
1 handful of cilantro
Coconut water or plain water
Add water until desired consistency is reached.
Oxygen Water is a water I found a few years back when I was doing some research on the effects of oxygen in the body. I usually purchase the water from Whole Foods. It is a brand called Hi Ho and I really like it. The bottles are glass and you can get it for about $7.99 a 6 pack. I go through the water pretty quickly. You can find the link to the company here.
I use this in the smoothies since it seems as though it would be the closest to pure “healthy” water I can find. Most water comes in plastic bottles and I would like to keep as much plastic out of my experience as much as possible.
UPDATE: I began writing this entry the evening before. When I woke up on Day 3 I had a terrible headache! I had it through the morning and I just kept drinking water. As the day progressed I began feeling nausea. It was horrible. Luckily I was able to close the shop early since it was New Years Eve and business was slow. Whew! I lost it a few times! Including my delicious smoothie!
I got home about 5:30 and slept until about 9:45 pm. I was pleased that I had a bit of an appetite when I woke up.
I had a salad and a Kombucha Toast to the New Year ! Although my head was a lot better, I still had a faint headache and felt the need to rest and be in a dark room. I meditated a bit on cleansing and went to bed shortly there after.
Happy New Year! Lot’s More to come!
