Every morning after my daily Ashtanga Yoga practice I come home and prepare, what is for me, the most beautiful meal of the day. Breakfast is a wonderful chance to provide the body with lots of nutrients and, with the right choices, has the power to improve your daily energy.

Today I started my day with a Power Green Juice made with organic ingredients. Everyone knows, or has at least heard about, the benefits of this magical and flavorful drink. The dark green leaves have the power to detoxify the body, acting mainly within organs that are overloaded daily with excess, such as the liver, as well as being a major source of calcium and iron for vegetarians.

So here’s the recipe I use most, but remember that creativity in the kitchen always assures us new discoveries and varying the ingredients is very beneficial for our health.

  • 2 leaves of kale
  • 1 apple
  • 2 pineapple slices
  • 4 leaves of mint
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • a small slice of ginger

Beat everything in a blender with a little water and add 1 tablespoon of Goji Berries (some studies found possible benefits to goji berries, including a feeling of well being and calmness, better athletic performance and quality of sleep). Drink on time!

I hope you like and remember that one single step of change into your daily routine can be the beginning of a new and bright life. Every time you decide to take care of yourself you are improving your life and the life of those you live with.

Om Shanti
