Yikes! Who Knew?
When I was thinking about what to post on Wellness Wednesday I did a little research. I thought I'd find a healthy exercise routine to share. Instead, I found some things Not To Do if you're concerned with your health, and who isn't?
So I'm sharing two things I learned from my little excursion into the Internet world of health.
John Naish of the British Daily Mail has written that some of these products are making us sick. He even says that incense, such as agarwood and sandalwood, are more toxic than tobacco smoke.
But wait! There's more.
Now here's something healthy to DO.
I tested it and it's actually pretty good. I'm not glowing yet, but I'll let you know if that happens.
It's packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that infuse new life into your skin. (I can use some new life infused into my skin.)
Here's how to make it...
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
- 2/3 c. of almond milk
- 1 cup of Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of your favorite berries (blueberries are best!)
- 1/2 of an avocado
- Handful of spinach or kale
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Generous drizzle of organic honey
1 small banana
A few ice cubes (more for a frostier smoothie, fewer for a creamier one)
Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until no lumps are visible. Serve immediately. Drink as often as you like... of course, every day is best!
If you're not a berry-lover, pineapple is a GREAT choice to get an extra dose of collagen-boosting Vitamin C... and it tastes like a tropical vacation in a glass!
