Update on acupuncture: Yay! I’m feeling better. I hope it lasts. I don’t see my amazing chiropractor until next week – fingers crossed it keeps feeling better and better. I’m not in the gym yet because I’m trying to take as much time to heal as possible, but my spirits are VERY high.
I made a scrumptious smoothie that was so yummy I was smiling from ear to ear with every swig (yes, it’s a swigger, I tell ya!). Did you know that bananas are known to help fight bloating as a result of the potassium content in them? Ladies, if any of you are experiencing excess bloat from PMS, then bring on the bananas (and this smoothie does just that).
Yield 4 cups
1 cup water
3 frozen bananas, peeled
2 oranges, peeled
1/2 cup coconut, unsweetened, shredded and dried
2 tablespoons raw chocolate powder (I love Nutiva)
2 tablespoons Manitoba Harvest hemp protein powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend all of the ingredients thoroughly and smile with every swig :)
Vegan Diet Study – Keep ’em coming! I love seeing vegan studies promoted in the news. If you know anyone suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, then send them here because the vegan diet comes to the rescue yet again.
