On most days, I wake up craving something warm like hearty oatmeal, eggs and avocado on toast or a good ol’ fashioned veggie omelet. Being a Vata body type, I naturally crave warm meals. But lately, most likely due to the change of seasons, my body has been asking for a little something greener and cooler; that is, a green smoothie of course.
Although to tell you the truth, I still enjoyed an egg sandwich on a gluten free english muffin about 2 hours later because that’s what I wanted…that’s what I needed. Dare to dig deep and listen to YOUR body.
Egg sandwich or not, this green smoothie totally kicked off my day on a fresh, healthy note! Enjoy this minty concoction on those mornings you want to refresh and reset, or as an afternoon treat. Go ahead…get a little minty.
