If REM had discovered what I have, they would never have written that song. I, friends, am reborn. I am so fresh and so clean clean clean. I have found a new religion: Green-Smoothie-anity-ism.
My journey began a little over three weeks ago, when Suburban Yogini came knocking at my door. She had with her a gorgeous smile, skin that was all aglow, and a funny little pamphlet with seemingly-innocuous smoothie recipes.
Normally I hide out like a bandit when there are those kinds of calls made at my house. Don't judge, I learned it early on. :) Childhood remnants and whatnot. But this day, oh yes, this day I answered the calling.
Today I am the liveliest, glowiest, and most energetic of converts. Yes, my skin is still detoxing and yes, it takes extra time out of my day for worship, but it is all worthwhile. And my yoga practice is off the chain; so, so much stronger. Twice a day, I bow down to kale, spinach, the holiest and most nutritious of fruits, my beloved chia seeds, milk, and sweetener. I have my own special green smoothie concoction.
You, too can be saved. All you need is a blender and a little imagination. :)
