Sweet Mango

Eating Mindfully means eating REAL.  We are a society surrounded by processed treats full of sugar and ingredients we can’t even pronounce.  As a result we MUST make an effort to step away from the packaged convenient foods.  Eating out of packages will only set us back from reaching our goals of better health, more energy, and ultimately feeling our best.  I have 3 kids so I totally get that it is a struggle – They all have a sweet tooth, they enjoy processed treats, and love FRUIT SNACKS.  I do however make a point to limit the amount and do my best to introduce them to amazing flavors that come from the earth.  LIKE MANGOS!

There are many reasons to incorporate Mango into mindful eating…  On top of being delicious they have so many nutritional values.  Here is a great article that explains 10 health benefits of Mangos.  My favorite way to enjoy mango is fresh all by itself… Nothing more needed it is a prefect TREAT.   Next time you or your kids want a treat slice up a fresh mango and enjoy!

BEET SMOOTHIE (The BEST ever)

RED BEET SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Made with raw beets, fruit, and greens, this smoothie has been life changing for me!  The energy it gives helps keep me fueled to teach 3-4 hours of fitness classes back to back.  I highly recommend this smoothie for so many reasons but mostly for the nutrition it contains.  Making a batch and storing in airtight mason jars can allow you to grab and go!  I keep mine for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.  You can add fresh ginger, cilantro, jalapeño, etc. to it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1-2 red beets.  I use RAW beets. (a great way to save time is to cut beets in cubes and store in the freezer to have on hand)
  • 1 Cup berries or mango (fresh or frozen)
  • 1-2 Cup kale, beet greens, or spinach
  • 1 grapefruit 
  • 1 small apple, cored.
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 cup  water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seeds (optional)

ENJOY!
