Recipe: Yogilational Green Smoothie

A few days ago, I signed up for a green smoothie challenge starting in February. In this challenge, I will drink 1 green smoothie a day for the whole month of February. I am excited and curious about the recipes and what it will actually do for me.

If you’ve been following my Yogilation page for while now, you know that I’m a “health-nut” and I enjoy trying new foods, places, and workouts, so I am looking forward to the green smoothie challenge for sure. So today, I wanted to use my greens that I had in my fridge for a small “trial green smoothie.” And here is what I mixed together:

Fresh Turmeric Tea Recipe

I’ve been adding turmeric powder (German: Kurkuma or Gelbwurzel) to my oatmeal every morning for a while now, but I’ve always wanted to try to make tea with a fresh root of turmeric.

So I finally got one at an organic store and found a cool and easy recipe on Pinterest :)

Yoga to Speed Up Your Metabolism

Yoga is good for you. Sure, that’s a fact – proven by our own feelings, experiences as well as scientific studies. I’ve wrote about it for example in my “Yoga & Healing” post or “5 Reasons to Do Yoga at Work” article before.

However, have you ever thought about yoga helping you to speed up your metabolism and increasing your metabolic rate? Your metabolism is like your nice and cozy fireplace that converts or “burns” the food you’re eating into energy and something valuable for your body and overall well-being. Do you know those fit and healthy people that eat quite a lot when you go out to eat or see them at a party? And you might think “Wow, how can they eat all that without gaining weight?”
