I’ll just have a Yoga wrap, please!

Food should be food!

When the Food Babe, Vani Hari, challenged Subway to remove azodicarbonamide – a chemical used to make yoga mats – from its bread,  the Environmental Working Group knew this was only the tip of the iceberg and decided to find out what other foods contain ADA. EWG analysis found it in nearly 500 foods.

Food should be food! Tell major brands, including Pillsbury, Sara Lee, Shoprite, Safeway, Smucker’s, Fleischman’s, Jimmy Dean, Kroger, Little Debbie, Tyson and Wonder, to stop using the plastic chemical azodicarbonamide in their products today!

Another Great Smoothie

Are you catchin’ on?

There are no rules to creating a smoothie.  Just use what sounds good, and is good for you.

Super Blue Greens

  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1/2-2/3 cup blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1 scoop rice or pea protein powder
  • Almond milk or water

Now that is some serious brain power with all the antioxidants from the spinach, blueberries, and all those wonderful Omega 3’s from the Flax and Chia seeds.

So there you have it, three great smoothies.  Step out and experiment.  Make up your own recipe, and if you like it,  send it to me and I am happy to post it and give you the credit.

If you don’t have a Vitamix, think about getting one. It is the ultimate blender/juicer/grinder, (you can even throw a whole apple in).  Check them out on Amazon!
