I don’t know about you, but I’m the type of person that needs to switch things up, often. I like change and welcome it with open arms, even sometimes going so far as to seek it when life feels too calm. That’s a little embarrassing to admit, even.
A lot has been going on in my life lately that has done just the opposite of that change I usually seek. Rather, it has been thrown at me from every which direction, every time being right when I thought I was getting my tush settled into a comfy seat. It’s particularly in those moments that I awaken to acceptance, and start to look a little closer at the importance of sitting still. Seeking out change can be fun, but it isn’t always the most healthy approach.
So today I thought I would start small. I took a killer yoga class at Y2 Yoga, where I will soon be an Energy Exchange member (free yoga!!!!)), and I made a smoothie that I have never made before. I had never taken this class before (Tanner’s insanity, errr “Double Shot”). It was great for my brain, even when I had to walk out after the first sequence. This smoothie was equally delicious and refreshing, and will help keep me still while I sort out some details about my life. I was more than able to enjoy this one to the end. Whip it up the next chance you get!
2 Cups Kale (I used Red Russian)
1 Cup Blueberries
½ Cup Water
4-5 Basil Leaves
2 tsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Spirulina
Blend and enjoy! And remember to sign up for the occasion emails I send! I’m going to send a “Year in Review” soon that I don’t think you’ll want to miss.
Blue Basil Smoothie, for a Change!
