How’s your fitness goal so far? Can I tell you something really quick before I share my fuzz-free drink recipe? I have conquered two months without consuming chicken and beef. Initially I thought I won’t survive but here I am, alive and kicking and should I say more energized?! Once a week though, I still satisfy my seafoods craving as I slowly transition to becoming a vegetarian. The only difference now when it comes to meal preparation? I cook separate meals most of the time or force my husband go all-veggies, poor guy haha! Like for example today, his dinner was chicken teriyaki with rice while I had roast vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots dressed in olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, crushed basil, and parmesan). If I can’t be inventive enough, I just go to Down To Earth (local health food store here in Hawaii) to pick up some hot dishes to last me for few days.
Ready for my post-work out thirst quencher? You will only need 4 items: a blender obviously, 1/4 cup ice, 1 cup coconut water, 1 ripe mango (slice the sides, cut squares and scoop out). Mix and grind, easy peasy!
Coconut water is dubbed as “natural sports drink”. It is rich in potassium, has less sugar and calories than traditional sports drink, and undoubtedly healthier than sodas! Mango on the other hand is called the “king of fruits” because it offers a plethora of benefits, to include keeping cholesterol in check, aiding digestion, boosting immunity, etc. Mix them both and you have a powerhouse drink pronto!
