Simple Green Smoothies – Drink your veggies and feel incredible!.

 

Thanks to Student Yogini Ashley Sabino for sharing her favorite Blog for Smoothie Recipes, just click the link above to see the Site.  It is a good idea especially for busy on the go folks like college students to quickly make a drink they can ingest and take along to drink later in the day.  It takes a simple blender that is not so expensive along with shopping ahead to stock up with ingredients.  Chain stores like Bed Bath & Beyond sell blenders at inexpensive prices (there is also a $5 coupon on the website).  Some yard sales and Good will stores also sell blenders which can be cleaned with baking soda and boiling water a few times before safe home use.  One can stock up on the paper cartons of almond milk, rice milk, hemp milk, soy milk, coconut water or milk, aloe vera, juice or other liquid choice for the base.  Then make regular stops at your favorite green market for veggies and fruits.  I keep basil , mint, tulsi, lemongrass and other herbs growing to add herb benefits.  I use dates and agave for sweeteners.  I add flax and chia seeds, these can be stored and last a while inexpensively thanks to shops like Trader Joes.  For college students that make a collective they may share veggies and fruits so that they don’t spoil easily.   The picture below shows a mason jar to hold the smoothie and that is a good idea for carrying along for later and inexpensive and come in different sizes, it is glass and not harmful plastic.  Thanks for stopping by here and please do share with others….Here’s to your good health!

Do click the link above to read about the many benefits for Tulsi.  I drink it as a tea almost every morning and when in India I just use the fresh leaves, almost everyone’s home has at least one plant,  to brew my cup of tea.  Organic India has now in the USA many flavored varieties available in stores, in tea bags.  When using herbs remember its like cultivating a garden but within your tissues and cells so it has to be attended to daily to keep the benefits growing in and around the cells.  Don’t ever expect to reap the benefits with a single application, it has to be an ongoing ritual.  Tulsi is a herb and doesn’t have any caffeine or chemicals (unless pesticides were used on the plants).  Thanks to Lalitji for posting this and to Green Yatra Blog for an excellent post!

Here’s to your good health! OM
