Here's a delicious way to get in your veggies for the day. As I said in Wednesday's post, I like to include a green smoothhie almost every day!

Simple Summer Smoothie!

Ingredients: 
• 1 cup coconut milk 
• 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks 
• 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks 
• 1/2 a frozen banana, in two-inch chunks 
• 1 handful spinach 
• 1 serving vanilla Vega protein powder (optional)

Directions: 
Place all ingredients in blender and pulse, then blend until smooth. Makes two servings.

Remember, Folks, food determines how we feel and heal!

After your workout is a time for your muscles to rebuild, repair and recover. You should refuel within 15-30 minutes of your workout, and your post-workout snack should have more protein than carbs if you are strength training, and more carbs than protein for cardio exercise.

 

In the same way that I don’t recommend Gatorade’s ingredients, I steer clear of protein drinks such as Muscle Milk, Boost or Detour. Read the label and you’ll find sugar, additives and chemicals – not what you want to put in your healthy body! Instead, have a po...

As a follow up to yesterday, I thought I would attempt to address this question: What’s the difference between juicing and making a smoothie?

 

Juicing:

 

Advantages: Juicing packs an incredible nutritional punch! It extracts all of the water and nutrients from vegetables, leaving behind the fiber. This means your body is better able to absorb the nutrients without having to digest the dense bulk of the plant. Plus, you can fit a large quantity of vegetables into a single glass of juice. The quick absorption gives you increased energy and...

One of the best benefits of juicing is the nutritional power packed into just one glass! Most people simply don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables to reap the disease-fighting benefits. While you wouldn’t normally sit down to a plate of 10 vegetables/fruits, you can make a smoothie or juice with the equivalent amount and drink to your health!

 

It’s important to know your juice and smoothie ingredients and which are best for you:

 

Not Good: Supermarket juices/smoothies often contain lots of added sugar, artificial ingredients and preser...

Your mother was right! Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day. We've all heard this before, but has anyone ever told you that what you eat makes a huge difference in the way you feel for the rest of the day?? Hint, the "bee fit" motto: Food determines how we feel and heal! :-) And, yet, according to food industry studies, more than 30 million people in the U.S. skip breakfast on a regular basis!

 

Now, I am not talking about eating a breakfast of sugared Frosted Flakes or a plain bagel with loads of cream cheese. These kinds of...
