After sharing your heart yesterday, please give a huge piece of love back to yourself today (and every day for that matter!) On this Women and Wednesdays, commit with me to understanding and fighting heart disease and ask 5 friends to join in with you. Then, have them ask five and so on.
While you cannot change your genetics, you can change your lifestyle. Here on Our Green Table, we do all we can to own our health and keep one healthy step after another on Prevention Road. Please join us!
Here is a recipe from my favorite doctor, Dr. Neal Barnard. He "wrote the book" on prevention and health for life. His Monster Shake recipe (I renamed it for festive reasons!!) is a variation of a Vita-mix classic. I would also toss in a red beet...to keep it seasonal and extra heart-healthy! Drink up, Healthy Gals!
Dr. Barnard's Heart Love Shake
6 cups fresh baby spinach or kale
1 1/2 cups fresh or drained canned pineapple chunks or pears
3 cups green grapes
1 1/2 bananas
1 1/2 cups water (I love coconut water in shakes!)
1 1/2 cups ice
Blend all ingredients together. Makes enough Heart Love for 6 servings. Enough for you and your 5 friends!! Perfect!!! xoxoxoxo
P.S. Add more ice for a thicker smoothie.
