Weather you are a believer and supporter of valentines day or not, taking an approach of gratitude, self love, and appreciation is always a path that is valuable, and that we all deserve EVERYDAY ! We all know that Valentines day, weather you are single or not, is a day known for chocolate, pleasure, and  love.  Sometimes in loving ourselves, we giver ourselves permission to let go, and endulge so to speak.

On the day after valentines day, here is the perfect way to reset your blood sugar, while delivering super nutrient dense ingredients right to your cells, and of course, keeping up with the chocolate theme...

Power smoothies are may favorite creation not only because they are the most power packed meal in a glass possible, but when you really start letting your creativity fly, you would be amazed at what it possible with many flavors, superfoods, and boosts.

With the perfect balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat, along with a health dose of daily greens (the sunshine component) you will feel better then ever...
