Why drink green smoothies?

Knowing how important our red blood cells are to our well being and to keep them clean, healthy and plentiful wouldn't  we look for something that gives our body the tools to do exactly that?
I have been passionate for many years at studying the human body,  nutrition and fine tuning the mind, body and soul from a holistic perspective. 
Since I have made significant changes to my own life and health, such as giving up alcohol over 3 years ago, becoming vegetarian, living a raw food lifestyle and aligning my life to increased happiness, gratitude and success I have included and become to love my green smoothies. Each time I stray away from my green smoothies I can feel the difference in my body physically and mentally. 

Benefits of drinking Green Smoothies.

  • Green smoothies are very nutritious
  •  Easy to digest
  • Green smoothies provide fibre are a complete food opposed to juices. Consuming fibre is important for our elimination system
  • By mixing  a ratio of 60:40 the fruit dominates the flavour making something green taste so great. All humans of all age can easily drink smoothie. Especially healing for elderly people or people suffering any illness or anyone needing to increase the immune system.
  • Chlorophyll found in Green plant based vegetables is known to help build and transport red blood cells. Check out this interesting article on Chlorophyll http://www.energiseforlife.com/wordpress/2009/02/11/health-benefits-of-liquid-chlorophyll/  A molecule of chlorophyll closely resembles a molecule of human blood so consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion”.
  • Easy to make and quick to clean up after is one of my favourite benefits besides all the super healing benefits. 
  • When consuming 2-3 Cups daily of Green Smoothies you are reducing the amount of oils and salt in your daily nutrition.
  • After drinking Green Smoothies for 2-3 weeks most people start to crave more  greens... even writing this, is making me crave a green smoothie, now that has to be a great thing for your body, rather than craving sugar or foods that are processed with artificial sweeteners or preservatives.
  • Green smoothies will keep up to 3 days in the refrigerator and while fresh is best, this is helpful to know when leading a very busy life at work or home. I often make a batch up to last for the day and at least one ready for the morning. I love the energy I ooze that comes from my green smoothies. 
Keep it live, green, and  natural.
Love and light

One of my favourite Superfood Maca

Maca as a nutritional SUPERFOOD supplement that comes best in a powder provides the body with high generalized tonic effects on the biochemical functioning of the human body. My main interest with the benefits of Maca if the ability to help the hormonal system. Not only does it provide energy but it has the power to be a hormone modulator.
It is a root vegetable and medicine herb. Native to Peru and Bolivia and cultivated in some parts of Brazil.

I work with many women on workshops, Yoga classes and my online 10 Week Mind and Body Transformation Program and many similar symptoms come up for us woman.

It is vital to make sure your body is getting the right nutrients and it excites me with this wonder ancient superfood how it can balance your hormones and provide energy.
Most women I work with are doing the same thing, giving out a lot of themselves to everyone else, family, partners, children, work, friends. Its time to give back to you, and you can start by fuelling your system with nutrients you may not even realise you could be deficient in.

At the end of the day what have you got to lose, by trying Raw Food, packed with extra supplements and nutrients. You will notice the benefits right away as many of my members do on the program. You will feel lighter, leaner, energised, happier and even more sensual.

Lets get back to Maca and the main benefits.

  • Naturally organic
  • Low GI, helps balance sugar levels
  • High in antioxidants 
  • Carbohydrate for sustained energy
  • Dietary fibre and will reduce cholesterol absorption
  • Essential fatty acids, omegas 6 and 9 and protein
  • Great source of calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamins
Enhancement of the endocrine function. The endocrine system includes glands and the hormones they secrete that exist in the body and control such conditions such as digestion, brain and nervous system physiology, energy levels, sexual function, fertility.
Hormonal regulation is vital and responsible for all the physiological attributes that enable us to enjoy the sensations of a feeling vibrantly alive and especially those included to sexual arousal, physical activity and stronger mental and emotional state of well-being. 
If you are going through menopause or even a tough time emotionally Maca Powder is going to give you the 'pick me up' that you just may  need to get through this time of your life.

Maca root  has the ability to increase the bodies ability to defend itself against physical and mental weakening and potential illness by its power of supporting the  adrenal and pituitary glands.

I use Maca powder in my green smoothies and you too can feel the benefits almost straight away.  I personally think every woman will benefit from Maca powder.

Love and enjoy!
