Green Bliss Smoothie

This green smoothie has super powers. It can fix a broken heart. No, really. It can. At least according to Ayurveda, an ancient healing science that originated in India where it's been practiced for at least 5,000 years, it can. Ayurveda's basic principle is to prevent and treat illness by maintaining balance in the body and mind through proper lifestyle and diet. So, instead of throwing a prescription to eliminate a symptom and calling it a day, Ayurveda practitioners work to find the root of the problem and fix that so all symptoms naturally dissipate. Doesn't seem like such a bad idea, does it?

Well, according to this ancient wisdom, our bodies have 7 energy channels that need to stay balanced in order to feel, well, balanced. And since I felt like I needed a boost in the love department as I was feeling a little empty, I decided to learn more about the heart chakra and focus on that for nourishing my body and love center.

What I found in a nutshell is that a broken heart loves some green goodness. I'm talking kale, spinach, kiwi, asparagus, green tea, green grapes... {Find out why here!} That's what I'm talking about! So, I've been greening it up even more than usual. And came up with this super green smoothie that really does make me pretty happy I must admit. :)
