A Sexy Snack, Smoothie, and a Song!
Sexy. What does this word mean to you?
Sexy to me means many things, including:
Taking care of, and caring about yourself, because no one is going to do it for you.
Listening to your body. The more you listen the more you will hear.
Getting out of your comfort zone. Have you done this lately?
Doing things and eating foods that energize you and get your cells vibrating. What gets you jazzed in this life?
Being smack-dab in the middle of the moment.
Being true to yourself, who you are, because why would you be anyone else?
Moving your body a lot. Exercise is vital!
Water and lot’s of it, greens, and chocolate; the real deal please, no pounding Hershey bars.
Music in most forms.
In the vein of this subject, I am sharing a snack, smoothie, and a song to get you feeling great, energized, and well, sexy!
Cacao Nibs, Goji Berries, and Walnuts
One word best describes this superfood snack and it is perfection. The combination of flavors and textures along with the superfood nutrient combination is a sexy win. A quick fact about each food:
The tiny seeds in Goji berries contain polysacharides that reverse the aging process by stimulating human growth hormone in our bodies. Awesome!
Cacao, or raw unprocessed chocolate, is high in potassium, the super mineral magnesium, and one of the highest sources of antioxidants on the planet!
Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids and biotin which are great for brain health, fighting inflammation and strong, shiny hair.
Combine in whatever ratio you like and enjoy by the handful (my favorite), with yogurt, granola, in a smoothie etc..
Vanilla, Cinnamon, Maca Smoothie
This smoothie contains the adaptogen maca which contains many sexy health benefits including increased libido, energy, immunity, memory, and being an adaptogen it helps our bodies to manage stress. Maca is a root vegetable that grows in the Andes at very high altitudes and health proponents, including moi, believe that foods that grow and thrive in harsh climates provide energetic resiliency and tenacity to those that consume them. You will notice a distinct increase in energy after consuming maca, not in a jittery sense, so best to have this smoothie earlier in the day. And cinnamon is the circulation increasing wonder food.
Sexy? I think so!

Lastly, I am sharing with you the sexiest song I have heard in a very long time. Annie Lenox never disappoints. Enjoy this loudly!
