organic red plums, only $5 for 5lbs. buying in season produce is always the way to go.
one of the first things i did today was go to yoga at the earliest hours of the morning. it makes you feel so strong and the dedication you give to yourself that early in the morning are the gears that turn the rest of the day. it's a great feeling to be part of a community all sharing one goal. to better yourself and breathe consciously for even just an hour. our instructor talked a lot about setting intention and using it as a power to gain control of your life positively.
It's something said a lot in yoga, but really diving into that intention can be easier said then done. How often do we assume the worst case scenario? Well, from here I will better myself by being thankful and letting my assumptions go. It truly helps a lot. Now for the yummy part of the morning.
Cacao Plum Intention
(makes 2 16oz servings)
2 Frozen and cut bananas
1 large red or black plum
1 tablespoon of Garden of Life Raw Protein Powder
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
Pinch of pink Himalayan Sea salt
28 ounces of distilled water
chopped almonds to garnish
This smoothie is rich in flavor. I added the Raw Protein Powder for my post yoga protein. The plums add a nice sweetness and actually blends well with the creaminess of it all.
