A case of cold feetPosted: October 16, 2012 Filed under: blog referrals, Health, Shake, Tips | Tags: almond milk, Cacao, Chocolate, cinnamon, cleansing, Detox, ginger, my new roots, Vega Vanilla Chai Leave a comment
And hands too. It seems if the temp. drops below 60, even just during the morning hours, I am struck down with cold hands and feet all day. Since this is 1. no fun and 2. a symptom if a sluggish circulatory system, I’ve been up-ing my GINGER intake. Ginger is terrific in a host of dishes but (and I know you are shocked), I’ve been putting it in my smoothie!
1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk Unsweetened
1 tsp cinnamon
1″ fresh ginger (peeled)
1 tbs cacao
1 cup rasberries
1 scoop Vega (Vanilla Chai, but I bet the chocolate would rock in this)
Another amazing ginger experience is in the bathtub using powdered ginger, I did this last winter and I’m looking forward to a repeat performance this winter. I’m not gonna lie though, it’s INTENSE and although I’m not really prescribing this for anyone, you probably wouldn’t want to do this if you are pregnant or breast feeding…..possibly even if you are alone in your house. That said, it was crazy effective, totally a modern day sweat lodge experience in the convenience in your own home. Of course, you can add a bit of powdered ginger to a typical bath and you’ll feel some nice warming effects without the
hallucinations “detox sweat”.
