Doesn't it feel great to eat a nutritious and fulfilling meal after a great workout? This is precisely what I did! After my morning appointments I decided to do a quickie at the gym before lunch. I made this hemp salad and it not only filled my belly, but it nourished my millions of cells with protein, good fat and many micro-nutrients including vitamins A, C, K, B-complex, carotenoids, iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium.
Here are the ingredients:
Bunch of arugula
Handful of chopped red cabbage
1 tbsp goji berries (Brand I used: Mum's Original)
Half a ripe avocado chopped
2 tbsp hemp seeds (Brand I used: Manitoba Harvest)
Dressing: 1.5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice
Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl. Pour dressing over top and mix together. Serves 1.
Now let's talk about this amazing giveaway I am doing for a pair of newSKY eco-chic shoes from New Balance. I've got myself a pair and I love lounging in them with my lulus on or walking around the city (I did wear them to work out in, but I don't necessarily suggest this for you... I love the lightweight feel).
They are super comfy, but what I love about them the most is all these cool eco facts - they are pretty much recycled material and they have been designed with 3 words in mind: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! Check this:
The upper area of the newSKY shoe is made entirely from Eco-fi; a high-quality polyester manufactured from 95% PET plastic bottles.
Each pair is made of approximately 8, 20-ounce P.E.T. bottles.
newSKY uses the Minimus sole (barefoot running shoe by New Balance) which reduces manufacturing waste.
The shoes are built with less material than traditional New Balance athletic shoes through a thoughtful upper pattern design.
So you wanna get yourself (men or women) into a pair of these awesome shoes? Here's what you need to do:
