7-Day Chakra Smoothie Rotation…
The great thing about a rotation diet is that you can rotate a little or a lot. For those you just want to get their feet wet, I’ve been formulating my 7-Day Chakra Smoothie Rotation. It’s a perfect introduction to see how having one snack/meal rotated each day makes you feel. The diverse fruits and veggies each day will likely make you feel better than you have in years!
Solar Plexus Chakra
One of my favorite recipes is for Wednesday’s 3rd chakra – the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is located on your body from the solar plexus or celiac plexus (celiac means abdominal) to the navel. There are bundles of nerves here and anything affecting your stomach – digestion or stress – affects your 3rd chakra. This weekly smoothie will help improve your body’s digestion and it’s stress-free to make – the delicious taste will absolve any worries 🙂
If you want to learn more about this chakra, I love this simple easy site that breaks each chakra down: CHAKRA ANATOMY. You will also find lovely affirmations, yoga poses and essential oils to further strengthen your 3rd chakra. But nothing beats this Pina Creamsicle smoothie!
