A Smoothie A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you know that I love smoothies more than anything!

Well, maybe not more than margaritas. But it's really really close.

I've been fortunate to always have relatively good health, but without fail I usually catch some sort of cold 3-4 times/ year. And one of those bouts usually knocks me out for a 2-3 days. 

But (knock on wood) since I started drinking smoothies at the beginning of 2013, I have not been sick ALL YEAR. That's almost a full 7 months of no coughing, sneezing, wheezing, runny noses, or anything!  Amazing.

I've also bumped up my workout regimen and started doing more yoga to keep my stress levels down. But, I truly believe smoothies are keeping my immunity defenses on full protection mode. Thank GOD. Because ain't nobody got time for expensive a** health care.

Below are the ingredients that I always incorporate in my morning smoothies. I've written a post about the benefits of Chia Seeds (click HERE to read it) and each week I'll post the benefits about a different ingredient.

  • Chia Seeds, read about their benefits, HERE, or Flax
  • Kale or Spinach
  • Fresh or Frozen Fruit
  • Banana
  • Organic Juice
  • Kefir
  • That's it! And it only takes 3-5 minutes out of my morning. So NO EXCUSES! 

Happy Drinking to Your Health! MUAH!

Smoothie on the Go Go

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you've seen my posts about smoothies. I literally drink one EVERY morning unless I'm out of town.  Its the perfect energy booster for my long days and keeps my immunity defenses on full protection mode.

But, if you're travelling or you happen to be running late out the door one morning, there's another great option for you!  Chia Vie!!

As a disclaimer, I'll be acting as a spokesmodel with this company in the future to promote their product. However, I would not have agreed to work with them if I honestly did not think that their product is AMAZING! Its jam packed with nutrients, all natural ingredients and taste delicious. My favorite flavor is Mango!

If you are one of those people that hates the gelatinous slime of chia seeds...don't worry. This smoothie in a bottle goes down easy and the flavors aren't overpowering.

Each bottle has two full servings of fruit, no added sugar, vegan, gluten free and full of all the benefits of chia seeds. Wanna try it out? You can purchase it online or check out your local Whole Foods or Cotsco!

Drink to your health,
