Another short + simple recipe and post today. My recovery process is not going as well as I had hoped, so I’ve had to devote most of my time and resources towards that process. It has been an intensely emotional journey, fraught with twist and turns at every juncture. I’ve been relying heavily on healthy nutrition and my yoga practice to augment my treatment. Lots of smoothies, lots of salads, lots of real whole foods, fruits, and vegetables. This smoothie combines yogic philosophy and nutrition, designed to stimulate the sacral chakra. Located between the pubic bone and the navel, the svadhisthana is the source of creative energy – not only in terms of ingenuity and inspiration, but also the source of the creation of human life. In this spirit, I created the smoothie with energizing tropical fruits, and a hint of spice with cinnamon, an aphrodisiac. And also because cinnamon and mango are a delicious flavor combination! May you drink this smoothie in good health. Namaste.
