This will be a quick post. I wanted to let you know of a challenge I am starting today called the 10-10-10 challenge. What this means, is for 10 days you do 10 minutes of yoga, and write down 10 things you are grateful for.
Head on over to my Facebook page for more information and for the link to day one :) Healthy Evolution with Rachel Kendell. Hope to see you there.
Today I want to share with you a recipe for my go to post workout smoothie. I love all types of smoothies, but this one tastes great, keeps me full and helps me recover. ( It also doesn't wreak havoc on my gut like the fibrous fruit/veggie smoothies do after a workout ). TMI?? That's what my daughter would tell me, but hey, just passing on personal experience that may help you as well ;)
1 cup nut milk of your choice ( I have been using cashew lately )
1 Tbsp cacao
1Tbsp fresh ground peanut butter ( I go to my local grocers to fresh grind )
1 frozen banana
1 tsp of raw honey
1/2 scoop protein powder ( I use sprouted brown rice protein powder from znaturalfoods.com. No added sweeteners, just natural goodness )
a pinch a Himalayan pink salt
Throw it all in a blender, mix and enjoy!
Here are some other add-ins that I sometimes throw in for an extra boost:
- Pea Protein powder mixed with the brown rice - doing half and half. This way you get all those awesome amino acids
- Spinach or kale ( great benefits in spinach and Kale, but does make for an interesting color. I won't tell you what my kids say it looks like )
- Coconut oil
- Chia seeds
Try some of these, or try some of your own. I would love to hear from you if you find a combination you love.
To your health and wellness,
