Hello and happy hump day to all!
An extra special shout out to my mah, who is celebrating her day of birth today! She is 27 years young, and looks not a day over 12. Yes, it is rather scandalous that she birthed me when she was a mear 4 years old, but let us allow bygones to bygone the city, shall we?
Speaking of staying youthful, what you eat can really help or hinder you in the ageing process. Many foods that are fried, processed and otherwise tampered with can go a long way in making you look tiered, saggy and old. This is for a myriad of reasons, one of them being that they are full of free radicals. Free radicals damage cells and cause us to look and feel old.
Fresh fruits and veggies have the exact opposite effect! They are full of so many wonderfully nourishing things that cause our bodies to look and feel amazing, and function at their peak.
The smoothie I have for you today is an amazing anti-aging elixir. It is pineapple, which contains bromaline which is an amazing anti-inflammatory compound. It has mango which can help you to digest your foods, because remember we are what we absorb. It has mint which is very cooling for the body, as well as lime with its super dose of vitamin C! You should be bouncing off the walls after this one.
All you need is;
1 large pineapple
1 handful of mint leaves
Chop your pineapple and mango. Peel the skin off of the lime with a knife and cut it in half.
Then all you have to do is stick it all in the blender and wala! You are donskies!
Do let me know if you try this, and what you think! I love the combo of mint/pineapple/lime. It is so refreshing for those hot summer days. ALSO being that it is in smoothie form, it is super easy on your digestion. This smoothie should make your whole system feel amazing.
