Getting back into yoga again last month required a bit of a fitness wardrobe overhaul. My “yoga pants” were basically glorified pajamas after not being used for their intended purpose in quite some time. Enter Just Live’s race time capris. The compression fabric cinches in all the right places for a lifted and evenly toned appearance. They are super comfy, and basically feel like a second skin. Just Live is offering glo readers a 15-perent off discount with coupon code Glo15 at justlive.com.
In case your New Year’s resolution includes using more natural cleaning products, I recently started using Puracy – natural, eco-friendly, and they actually work! The green tea and lime multi-surface cleaner not only smells wonderfully, but it cuts the oil splatters from my stovetop like nobody’s business. Puracy is actually offering glo readers 10-percent off through Feb. 28, 2015 with coupon code PURGLO2015 at www.puracy.com. Enjoy!
My breakfast routine lately has experienced an overhaul after a nice Black Friday purchase of a small blender for smoothies. The best smoothie book I’ve found is “100 Best Juices, Smoothies, and Healthy Snacks” by Emily Von Euw. Here’s one really delicious recipe directly from the book if you want to give it a try:
Ginger Peppermint Liver Cleanser Peppermint leaves help your liver by increasing bile flow while breaking down fats and lowering bad cholesterol. Ginger has been proven to prevent diseases associated with the liver as well as cleanse the blood. Health benefits aside, the flavors combine with tropical fruits to make one deliciously fresh drink. Have this one in the morning to start your day off right. Blend all ingredients until smooth and green, making sure there aren’t any fibers from the ginger left unblended…they get in your teeth.
1 cup (24 g) packed mint leaves
4 ice cubes
1 tbsp (15 g) ginger
1 cup (165 g) pineapple
1–3 cups (237-710 mL) water
