Congratulations!! You’ve made it to day 7! We’re one week into the new year now and hopefully this cleanse has helped you find some balance. Today we’re bringing our attention to the crown chakra, Sahasrara. Sahasrara is our connection to the divine. It brings us wisdom, inspiration and connection to spirituality. For a deeper look at the crown, check out the Sahasrara meditation from the Six Month Mindful Living Challenge.
Good morning, it’s Zoe again from One Beet. Today I’m sharing my Tropical Winter Smoothie. This winter white smoothie tastes like summer in a glass! It is reminiscent of piña colada flavors, without any added sugars or artificial flavors. Pineapple is loaded with anti-inflammatory bromelain, which has been shown to improve digestion, combat cancer, and support immunity. In addition to adding sweetness, the coconut milk is high in antioxidants, vitamins B, C, and C, as well as magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, and iron. So, you can definitely feel good about sipping on this sweet treat.
Tropical Winter Smoothie
1 cup frozen pineapple
¾ cup coconut milk
½ lime (peeled)
Combine all ingredients and puree to a creamy consistency.
To stimulate Sahasrara in yoga we work with inversions. Kathryn Budig’s Yoga Journal video breaks down each inversion with helpful prop use & starting points. If this is too advanced for your practice, return to day 3 of the challenge and work with whichever video you didn’t do. There were 2 videos that day, one focusing on core, the other on building heat. Enjoy the fresh perspective of being upside down! Jaya.
