Today was yoga day. Some days I dread the thought of a 90 minute yoga workout but by the time it's over, I'm glad that I did it. It feels so good to give my muscles a good stretch. My flexibility has definitely improved since I started doing yoga.
For some reason, I was craving a smoothie when I finished my morning workout this morning. I used this as an excuse to try a new orange pineapple smoothie recipe from one of my favorite blogs, "For the Love of Cooking".
Orange Pineapple Smoothie
1 cup of ice cubes
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
3/4 cup orange juice
I combined all the ingredients in my little Oster blender and voila - smoothie!
I had several errands to run today so I poured my smoothie into a travel mug and off I went. I enjoyed my refreshing drink as I accomplished my morning "to do' list. It was so good and it kept me full until lunch time. I think I am going to have to start making more smoothies - I forgot how good they are.
