This week I have been nose down bum up and have not been awesome at keeping my water up. I know better. Every time I do this my immune system sends me a warning flag in the form of an oncoming cold. So I wise up quick, drink heaps of water and then gift my body what it is asking for…Liquid love.
Here are the ingredients to the Chocolate Mango Smoothie
3 cups of spinach
1 Tbsp of paelo breakfast mix of nuts and dried fruits
1 Tbsp of LSA
1 Tbsp of Chia seeds
1 Tbsp of Cacoa powder
1 tsp of Kale powder
1 tsp of Maca powder
a squirt of liquid minerals
Mixture of Macadamia Milk, Almond Milk, and Coconut water to cover over the spinach
Top with frozen Mango or berries about a cup or two
You don’t need to be pedantic about the amounts I usually just eyeball everything. I drink about two to three glasses of this in the morning and into the afternoon. Can’t remember the last time I was sick if I make it when I am starting to feel something coming on.
We had a collection of happily drunken friends spend the night at Craig’s last birthday. In the morning they were not quite so happy. Until I made them the smoothie. They all looked at it very dubiously but then once sculled they swore by it.
I have a wee Periscope channel @MandiLynnVS where I am showing people my own journey to wellness. I am over 40. I am fluffy. And I struggle with consistently staying fit. But I want to have 40 more years of fun and I know if I don’t do something that will not be possible. Plus I now have a very delicious ticking several of my Desire Map Words…Adventure, Abundance, Creativity, Playfulness… Antartica.
I am applying for a grant to work on an art project in Antartica with a famous fabric artist and it is looking quite positive for us to be selected. If selected we will be travelling there in October of next year. I get seriously cold and I am worried that I will not be able to find adequate cold weather gear in my size and I am worried I will not be fit enough to climb to the places where I want to get my shots. So I have a year to train to be a fit, not as fluffy, over 40’s chick. I will spend the next year documenting my training to get there on Periscope. If you follow me you will get an update whenever I do a video.
