    HOW TO MAKE A PERFECT GREEN SMOOTHIE

 Follow these five steps to create delicious, homemade, green smoothies!  

1.)   For a yummy result, use the 60/40 formula. When you’re making your first few green smoothies, don’t just throw things in the blender. Chances are, it’ll taste nasty if you through things in random proportions. To save you a few smoothie fails, use those cute looking measuring cups and follow this simple formula: 60% fruits to 40% leafy greens.

2.)   Blend it little by little to avoid leafy chunks. To get a “smooth” green smoothie experience, blend up your leafy greens and liquid-base first. Then add your remaining fruits and blend again to bring to life a one of a kind smoothie.

3.)   Add frozen fruits instead of ice cubes If you like your drinks extra cold... Freeze your favorite fruits like ripe bananas, grapes, pineapple or berries and use them instead of adding ice to your green smoothie. This is also a great way to not waste ripe fruits (like brown bananas or forgotten strawberries).

4.)   Don’t forget to add raw natural sweeteners. Add naturally sweet fruits to any smoothie that tastes bitter or a bit too “green.” By sticking with naturally sweet fruits like bananas, mango, apples, pears or pitted dates, and completely stay away from any artificial sweeteners and processed sugars.

5.)   Make smoothies your “fast food”. Life can get crazy busy— especially in the morning. That’s why we think that green smoothies are the healthiest fast food for people who are constantly on the go. You can blend your green smoothie the night before and store it in your fridge up to 2 days. Use an airtight lid to limit oxidation and keep it as fresh as possible. When ready to drink, give it a good shake before you open.

 

 

 

4 WAYS TO AVOID YOGA INJURIES

1.) Research first. Yoga students need to do their research of what type of yoga is a good match for their body, health, and personal goals. They should also know whether or not the teacher is properly qualified. Don’t be afraid to ask the teacher about their background, their continuing education... about their most recent training, how long have they been teaching, etc. If you don’t feel the freedom of asking directly, then ask around. A good idea would be to check out the teacher’s social media feed to see if they post yoga-related content is compatible with your needs.

2.) To start, Choose a small yoga class For example, a Vinyasa class, which is one of the most popular styles of yoga. It’s a repetitive, efficient, and skillful practice that is best studied in a small group so that the teacher can monitor his students and educate them to help prevent the many common misalignments from causing injury. The repetitive flexion and extension of the spine done in the practice of vinyasa can lead to injury if done incorrectly.

3.) Start where you are…every time. One should always start with the simple and move toward the complex. If you’re a beginner, begin at the introductory level. Learn to listen to your body, little by little, with daily practice you’ll be able to do all the moves.

4.) Practice with respect to your body and the practice itself. Remember that yoga increases strength and flexibility in the body but more importantly, in the mind.
