Kick Off New Year's + Matcha Green Smoothie Bowl

 New Year's sparks the time to start fresh. Forget what was in the past, forget last year's successful--well, more like untouched--resolutions and make new commitments this year. A vision board is a great way to help that or even a new hobby.

There is nothing better than persevering toward a new lifestyle, a new diet, a new goal. Forgive yourself when you make a mistake, when you miss a workout day, when you eat a cookie on your no-sugar diet. And then move forward.

If you're pursuing a healthier lifestyle, congrats! You're going to be pursuing a road that is, sure, hard but very rewarding! Try this recipe to get you motivated:
  • 1/2 tsp Chia seeds (ground or soaked in water for 10 minutes)
  • 1 tsp Green Tea Matcha powder
  • 1 tsp Cacao Nibs
  • 1/2 peeled & diced Avocado
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup dairy alternative milk (Soy, almond, etc.)

Simply blend the above ingredients together and pour into a bowl. Top with your favorite toppings ( I chose cacao nibs, banana slices, and shredded coconut) and eat up! This smoothie bowl is vegan and so good for you.

Try to do your best to choose organic ingredients in smoothies and juices, as it's the best choice when cleansing and detoxing your body. Conventional food will only add more unwanted chemicals and pesticides.

All the best as you look forward to your new year!
