Shed and Tone (C-lium Recipe)

Post Workout Recovery Smoothie; Weight Management; and Anti-Diabetes

Nutritionist Ms. Nadine Tengco demonstrated to us (Crossfit challenge participants) how to make a smoothie. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take pictures.

Ingredients:

1 cup papaya cubed
1 large banana
1 tablespoon Psyllium fiber
1 tablespoon no-sugar crunchy peanut butter
2 cup low-fat or almond milk
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoon cilantro
1 tablespoon mint leaves
10 grams coco sugar or 2 sachets Stevia (optional only: if banana or papaya is not sweet)
Ice cubes

Blend all ingredients together

Serves 2

**This smoothie should be taken within 1 hour after workout to aid in muscle repair, recovery and refuelling. It contains potassium, calcium, iron, potent antioxidants (phenolic and flavonoid compounds) and the anti-inflammatory enzyme papain, all designed to assist the body in healing, repairing and building lean muscle and increasing metabolism.

Music and Health

Do you know that music and health has always been associated together. It seems that people who are suffering from sadness and depression usually begin to feel better because of music. When people are able to express their feelings through music, they usually feel more positive about life in general.

Depending on the type of instruments that people love using, there are different brands and models that are available. Checking out presentation series (Taylor guitars) can be a good idea because any of the guitars that are part of the selection sound great and can be used well by all music lovers.
