Food For Thought

As I was clearing my mind and I finished doing some light yoga this morning, the beautiful sun began to peek through the horizon. At times, I wonder what life would be like, if the sun didn’t rise or if I woke up in a place where I felt no peace.

At times, when my mind is unsettled in turmoil, I tend to look for comfort elsewhere.  The comfort I ran to this morning was food. Food is so powerful because it affects our body, mind, and soul on so many different levels.

I have seen through my 2 lenses, up close and personal the lack of food/nutrition in starving children and adult. I have seen how food addiction can dramatically change the people we love from the inside out. I have seen the way food can unite strong family bonds just as quickly as it can tear apart those bonds. I have seen food heal the mind, the body and the soul.

But as I gaze upon the rising sun again, all I can wonder is, Within Whom Do We Find Balance?

I just love mediating and playing connect the dot with my thoughts and emotions. Although, I have digress a little bit from my original thoughts, let me get back on track!

This Green Smoothie is the perfect way, for you to enjoy your spinach without eating it per say. An important matter to remember with enjoying a green smoothie is that all the fiber is intact since we are only pureeing the vegetable.

So, with that being said, your body needs fiber, as it can help lower cholesterol and prevent diabetes and heart disease. Also, another cool fact is,  fiber makes you feel full, which discourages overeating! 🙂 Awesomeness!! 🙂

My ingredients for his Tropical Smoothie only includes 3 extra ingredients. The coconut water, the mango and the pineapple. Personally, I wanted to keep this smoothie on the low calorie side, which is why I choose to use coconut water instead of  milk or juice. The pineapple was only added because it is a naturally sweet!! 🙂 However, if you don’t have these ingredients on hand, I am sure you can switch them out for a different tropical fruit! 🙂
