Hi, this is Doctor Debra and I'm back with another green smoothie recipe and a bit of a workout tip today. This week I started a new workout and I do fear of sets so that my body get’s a chance to acclimate and usually that works all fine. But this week, I've been really sore a day or two or even three after my workout. And I thought what’s different, I stretched afterwards. This one concentrates on abs and I don’t want to concentrate on abs but I do quite a few abdominal exercises. And yes, there is even stretches for abs and I'll show you that in a different video and different environment. But, what’s been the difference? The difference has been I have not been taking my green smoothies in the morning after working out or really at all. I've just had a hard time getting back into the flow of that. For some reason I've gotten where I just grabbed a banana and I don’t really nourish my body properly. I don’t think afterwards. So, today I'm back on track. I worked out this morning. So I'm back on track on the green smoothie. This one is called emerald pear. It's surprisingly good. The first time I made it, I wasn’t sure I was going to like. It just happens to be the fruits that I have on hand. It starts with a couple of pears. These are organic pears from Sampharo market. Sampharo market, if you have one of those in your area, they’re really nice. They have really nice greens and really nice fruits, quite a bit of organic. Usually they have just at least something organic on sale. This week I got to go into the city and go to some Sampharo market and go to trader Joe’s, neither of which is very close so it has to be when you're making the trip for something else. So, I'm going to put two of the pears in. and then we’re going to take two kiwis and all I did was wash them. I just sliced them. I don’t worry about the skin because it just gives you lots of nice fiber and you won't notice it once its ground up into the smoothie. These are just such a neat little fruit. We’ll start with that and put in about a cup of water. All right, give that a grind. Okay a handful or two of spinach and then I thick this is kale. This is I believe it's called a lange kale. It's nice dark green kale. I'm going to start with two pieces of that. Let’s see how that goes. Even just putting the lid on, I can feel in my abs. So it's amazing the things we do that use the abdominal muscles. A little more water— All right, get through the taste test. I have my taste tasting spoon. It's good. Actually I think I'm going to put in the last two pieces of kale. I always tend to put in some greens and then taste test and see if I put in more because the greens are the magical ingredients. Okay I think for me in the last week, it's been—I still need plenty of fruit and some greens and vegetables but not merely the amount I get by eating my smoothies. Here is our nice pretty glass. Here is our beautiful emerald pear smoothie. So give that a try and see if that doesn’t help you recover from your workout. I'm going to really make sure that I get mine from now. So this Doctor Debra wishing you a great day. An enjoyable green smoothie, give that one a try and let me know what you think. Goodbye now.
