If there was a pill that helped us feel and look great, curbed our cravings, tidied our digestive tracks all the while nourishing our bodies and upping our health game we'd probably all take it... non? I've been drinking my daily dose of greens for 5 years. By blending your own smoothie regularly you're setting the intention for good health. Consciously purchasing the organic spinach and kale, discovering your favourite apple, squeezing your lemons, washing the produce and blending it. Considering all the goodness you're eating before you drink it. There is power in that. You're seeing it, thinking it, handling it, consuming it. So many touch points for positive intention. Drinking a thoughtfully made green drink seems to feel inherently good, it's hard to ignore. Check out the Goods smoothie archives

Dr Cousens Tree of Life This weekend Upaya Naturals is hosting Dr Gabriel Cousens in Toronto. I'm so excited, I studied from his text Conscious Eating in Bali and toured his healing centre, The Tree of Life, in Patagonia, Arizona. But I haven't seen him in person, so I'm big time looking forward to this. The event is being held at the OISE U of T building on Bloor and St George, it runs Friday and Saturday night and most of Sunday. You can buy a pass for the weekend intensive or just pop by for one day. If you're going let me know! Looking forward to updating you all next week.
