Good morning, gorgeous. <- Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? One of my favorite things about the Crazy, Sexy Diet (and thus, Kris Carr) is how fun, empowering, and complimentary her word choices are. They're the kind of words that I might use towards my best friends, the people I love and care about, and the ones I should use towards myself. I don't usually, but upon waking this morn I said the italicized statement to myself; it's set quite the spectacular tone for the day.
Then there's the drinking at least one green drink/smoothie daily as advised. It takes spending more money, buying more produce, and taking more time to prepare and then clean-up, but it's so worth it. The simple, raw blends that've been fueling my mornings have not only been nourishing my body, but my mind and soul as well. I feel clearer, more energetic, and fabulous knowing that I'm treating myself so gosh darn well. Talk about a self-love boost!
For the past few mornings, I've been sipping hot lemon water while I prepare breakfast in my Breville ikon Hemisphere Blender: three handfuls of spinach, a ripe banana, half of a sliced cucumber, avocado slices (1/4), some chopped romaine, a tablespoon of flax, 2 cups of almond milk, and a couple dashes of cinnamon. It's a delicious and satisfying compliment to the occasional Andy's Pure Food green juice. What do you do for y-o-u in the a.m.?
