Smoothie Routine ~ Rotina de Smoothie

The routine I have for Saturdays is so nice.  I wake up early and feed the family (a slew of cats, a rabbit and birds). Then I prepare a light breakfast that includes a smoothie made of whatever happens to be in the fridge, toast, some yogurt and a hard-boiled egg.  About an hour later I’m headed to yoga class.  I like the 9:00 a.m. class the most because that’s when Maria teaches.  Maria is the best yoga instructor ever.  After yoga I come home and eat some more.  Yes, lot’s of calories are burned during yoga.  After a satisfying brunch I shower and put on something comfy.  Then, despite my true desire to sit at the painting station and start a new project, I begin to feel very relaxed…and sleepy.  I’m on the couch now, with Batgirl (the cat) beside me.  Time for a nap.

You can make a smoothie with almost any fruit or vegetable.  I like to use bananas, celery, cucumbers, carrots, papaya, ginger, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, pears, apples, mint, cilantro, parsley, and fresh squeezed lemon or orange juice.  Really- you can use any combination of these and your smoothie will be great.  Just remember to add water or some sort of liquid to the Magic Bullet or your smoothie will be too think to drink.


Adoro a rotina do sabado.  Acordo cêdo e dou comida para a tropa de gatos, um coelho e três passarinhos.  Depois tomo um café da manha lite:  ovo cozido, smoothie, pão torrado e iogurte. Uma hora depois vou para o studio de yoga.  A professora da aula das 9, Maria, é a melhor de todas. Só falho a aula do sabado quando viajo.  Depois da aula volto para a casa e como mais…um brunch.  A yoga quiema muitas calorias.  Tomo um banho.  E junto a gatinha “Batgirl” caio naquele sono profundo.

O smoothie pode ser feito com qualquer fruta ou verdura. Eu uso o que tiver na geladeira:  aipo, mamão, pepino, cenoura, manjericão, banana, gengibre, maçã, pêra, coentro, e hortelã, morango, limão espremido ou suco de laranja.
