I really struggled with what I was going to write about today. But then it hit me while I was making my morning smoothie--nutrition! Nutrition is such a big deal for people living with Fibromyalgia! I need to stay away from chemicals like MSG; night shade foods need to be eaten in moderation and sometimes not at all (tomatoes, potatoes, egg plant, peppers). Fresh and organic is almost always a winner for me.
We drink smoothies for breakfast frequently but recently my hubby was watching a demonstration at Costco for Vita Mix (we already have one so don't know why he was watching). The demonstrator was making a smoothie so hubby brought home the ingredients to make it. I think I have made a few additions to it but I do that with everything I make!
So my gift to you today is the recipe for this delicious smoothie!
Pineapple Citrus Smoothie
(4 servings but Hubby & I share it)
2 cups fresh pineapple
1 orange, peeled leaving the white
1 lemon, peeled leaving the white
1 lime, not peeled
2 Tablespoons Hemp Seed Kernals
- Use blender to blend till smooth (might need to have heavy duty blender like Vita Mix)
- Add 10 ice cubes, one at a time.
- Enjoy--this tastes amazing!
Have a great day! Tomorrow is the letter O!
