Here's Another Magical Recipe For Ya! This one is for your juicer, not your blender...
Me and my smoothie = quality time together :)
I've been into concocting and drinking smoothies for years, taking it back to my days running for the University of Alabama and then being a personal trainer and college coach. Smoothies are a delicious, fun, easy way to JAM pack a wide-variety of nutrients into a small serving!! I'm sure I'll be posting about some of my other fav smoothie recipes, but for today, I'll share with you my Magical Chia Pet Rainbow Smoothie...
Magical Chia Pet because it has chia seeds in it and chia seeds are AWEsome! FULL of nutrients, omega 3's, fiber, etc.. and the ancient Aztecs prized these little seeds more than gold! And Rainbow because it changes colors - it begins a beautiful golden hue and ends in a berry delightful one :)
Having a good quality blender is very important and really does make a difference when it comes to texture and taste of your smoothies. You especially need a great one if you do green smoothies that incorporate a lot of leafy greens and veggies - a poorly blended green smoothie will make you gag, think it's impossible for it to taste good and will probably turn you off forever. Green smoothies can taste amazing, I promise! I use the Vitamix Blender because I know it will get a lot of use and to me, it was simply worth the investment for my health!
AWE Expert Contributor :: Sara Norgeot From IamFit! Personalized Nutrition & Workout Plans From The Best In The Biz!
For the first time in a loooooong time I am actually dedicating big parts of every day to myself! When I was grinding out mad crazy hours working in television production in NYC I did not have the time or energy most days to eat right, exercise, meditate, etc... So, I decided it was time for a change and who better to enlist to help me than my former University of Alabama track and cross country teammate/NPC Bikini Competitor and IamFit Creator - Sara (that's her below:)
Sara devised personalized nutrition and workout plans for me and I've been on it for about a month and feeling SO much better. I'm finally creating dishes in the kitchen (that's my salad below) and for me, that feels AWEsome because when I say I NEVER used to cook or be in the kitchen at all, I mean it; to even get in there and craft up new salads feels great.
Be sure to go to my "About ALY" page and a link to Sara's website is listed under her quote! Or you can see her facebook page here. She's a superstar and would love to give you the same guidance she's given me so don't be afraid to reach out!!
