Detox Smoothie: Recipe #229

I drink this detox smoothie most mornings now. It’s a wonderful collection of superfoods that can clean out toxins from the body and leave the mind full of positive energy. As another boost to your day, here is an easy 2-breath exercise from Plum Village that brings me back to a calmer place of rest and healing:

Breathing in, I know I am breathing in
Then breathing out, I smile
Breathing in, I know I have a body
Then breathing out, I relax my whole body
