Aside

Who doesn’t love smoothies? Okay, some people don’t. My husband didn’t until he tried one of my morning ones. It wasn’t till after he was hooked that he knew what was in it. Sure, he knew strawberries, pineapples, maybe apples, a little mango even oranges went into my smoothies but he was surprised when he found out I also alternate putting in a little turnips, celery, kale, spinach, and lettuce. I wish I had a camera to capture the look on his face when he saw me throwing in some spinach! But even after that he still drinks them.

Some smoothie recopies are a little complex but for the most part there are really simple ones. I usually just experiment. I love mango, strawberries and bananas, so I usually start with those but you can also throw in some pineapples, apples, grapes, peaches….the list goes on.

Here are some simple recipies that you will love.

Smoothies for Insomnia

Standard

ImageInsomnia is the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep. Insomnia may be caused by low blood sugar, depression, heat or cold or caffeine. People who suffer from insomnia may also be vitamin B, magnesium or calcium deficient. Caffeine plays a big role in insomnia, although that cup of coffee in the morning may be ok, those that drink coffee all day long or even after dinner are affected.

I love my morning smoothie, gets me off to a good start…it consists of strawberries, mango, kale and apples.  In the evening I make one of apples, kale, banana and pineapples.

Fruits and vegetables to juice for insomnia: Apples, Bananas, Lettuce, Leafy Greens

There are also herms to add to juice: Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Passionflower, Skullcap, St. John’s Wart, Valerian, Wild Lettuce.

These smoothies will calm you throughout the day and help you have good nights sleep.

Here are a couple recopies to try. I use natural/unsweetened apple juice as a base.

4 spinach leaves

2 kale leaves

1 beet

2 stalks of celery

1 apple

or

3 apples + 3 stalks of celery

Cutting caffeine out of your diet is hard for some, but once it’s out of your system you will feel better, with more energy and can sleep better at night.

Turmeric Smoothie –

Turmeric Smoothie –

Turmeric Smoothie - One of my favorite ways to relax and unwind and help my body recover is enjoying Turmeric Tea, Turmeric Ginger Lemonade, or Turmeric Milk (I make mine with homemade vanilla almond milk or coconut milk and do not add pepper). Turmeric, and ginger, are both great for inflammation and recovery and I find sipping them at night very relaxing. There are days though when I have a hard workout early in the morning before a full day and that is when I enjoy a turmeric smoothie to help with fatigue, soreness, and inflammation. Not only is this smoothie very bright in color, like the sun, but it also helps your body recover and after drinking it you will help your body recover and be ready for the sun to come up and tackle tomorrows workout!
