Liquid-y Day.....Lori Painter~Yoga for Back and Hips!

I hope you all are having a good day!  I've been busy around the house today.  I love home! 
Routine cleaning~food prep and some schooling with my daughter

Pictured above are part of my liquids for the day. 
Two bottles of Cucumber, Celery, lemon, ginger juice and a green smoothie.
Daily Green Juice
2 whole cucumbers
4 cups of celery
about 1/3 c. lemon juice (I didn't measure)
1" piece of ginger
squirt of stevia
I just blended this in my Vita-Mix and strained it!
Easy peasy!
this made a little over 32 oz.
I already had one 16 oz prepared in the fridge (not pictured) that I drank this a.m.
This juice is hydrtating, cleansing and beautifying for the skin! We could call it an anti-aging juice.
You can add a granny smith apple, pear or pineapple to sweeten it up if you like.  I prefer the fruit in my smoothies and not in my juices most of the time.

Green Smoothie
1 container of blackberriess
2 mango's
2 banana's
1 c. pineapple
1" piece of ginger
4-5 oz of spinach
few ice cubes
Blend in Vita-Mix or high powered blender

All of this should keep me going until dinner tonight and then I will prepare a savory blended soup or salad with some hemp seeds and/or tahini.

Lori Painter from Inspire 2 Act has posted a great video for stretching and lengthening lower back and thigh muscles.

  1. Kathy, I also have videos on how to warm up with yoga if you are interested! Here is Warm up 1: http://bit.ly/dIfVmb and warm up 2: http://bit.ly/eslk61

    Thanks for posting my video and let me know if there is anything else I can do for you!

    I lvoe that you are getting your green juice on!!!! I am inspired!!!

  2. I have used similar recipes but I still can't get over how disgusting ginger is to me; its benefits far outweigh the taste/benefit ratio though. Nothing better for turning up your metabolism and detox in my opinion than some spicy ginger. Great recipes.
