i have super low blood pressure. like, scary-low.
whenever i go to the doctor, they take my pressure and the kindly nurse cocks her head, knits her brows together and asks me if I feel okay or if i'd like a glass of water.
that's just me...80 over 65 or thereabouts...sometimes much lower. and it stinks because i get dizzy and can get terrrible headaches and massive fatigue if i don't watch it.
and i watch it with salt. lots and lots of salt.
i feel best when i've been on a drive-thru bender for a week or so but that's not really consistent with the healthy lifestyle we try to achieve over here, right?
so how does a girl get her salt on when she's on a 40 day smoothie fast?
with a salted-cocoa-maple-kale smoothie, thats how!
(adapted from a farmer in the dell)
into the pool goes:
1 large banana
1 handful black organic kale
1 handful organic spinach
1tbs pure maple syrup
2tbs black cocoa powder
1tsp pure vanilla
1/8-1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2tbs organic peanut butter or almond butter
1/4 c chocolate almond milk
3/4 cup spring water
6 ice cubes
zoomzoom and delicious! tastes remakably like sanders salted chocolate caramels only much, much better for me.
here's to maintaining my salty blood AND getting some chocolate :-)
