Hey guys, hope your day was good. Tomorrow is Friday! At yoga tonight I got up into a hand stand 3 times. I was pretty pumped! I was only able to hold myself there for a few seconds, but I still got there.
This morning I had a bit of extra time so I made a bowl of steel cut oats, which took double the time regular rolled oats take to cook.They were worth it though. This bowl contained:
1/3 c steel cut oat groats
2/3 c almond milk
1/2 c water
1 small banana, sliced
1 tbsp chia seeds
It was filling and tasty, as usual! I’m still rocking the leftover Spring Legume and Sweet Potato Salad. 4 days later and it still tasted great.I served it on a bed of organic mixed greens with some Tangy Tahini Dressing and a slice of homemade “earthy” toast. That was after spin and yoga tonight. I was hangry!
I sprouted some buckwheat over the weekend and thought I would try them in a smoothie.
This baby is loaded with nutrients and is a perfect kickstart to your day. Sprouted buckwheat contains a host of healthy benefits including:
-contains all 8 amino acids, making it a complete protein
-cleanses the colon
-alkalizes the body
-contains Rutin which strengthens the capillary walls=good for varicose veins
-contains Lecithin which soaks up bad cholesterol preventing it from being absorbed, neutralizes toxins and purifies the lymphatic system.
-Lecithin may also prevent anxiety, depression, brain fog, and mental fatigue as the brain is made up of 28% Lecithin.
-high in Iron
-high in Boron and Calcium which helps prevent Osteoporosis
-high in bioflavanoids, flavanols and co-enzyme Q10
-contains B vitamins, magnesium, manganese and selenium
Spiced, Sprouted Buckwheat Smoothie
1/2 c buckwheat, sprouted
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 banana, frozen and sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 c almond milk
1) Put everything in a blender and blend away! It doesn’t get any easier or quicker to make a nutritious breakfast.
This was lightly spiced and slightly sweet. If you want it thicker just add more banana or ice.
