Day 4 Breakfast

Day 4
Its been warm these few days , so thought why not make some juice and  smoothie. Planned to make the  smoothie  using dates, as a good protein. 
 Lets start with some deep breathing and yoga.
Today we are doing Yoga pose #2 its called the Soldier pose and Pose #3 Mountain Pose.
Soldier Pose Stand straight, tall with legs about a  feet apart, facing straight. Starting with the right leg,turn right foot  90 degrees with the toe of the right foot pointing outwards,keeping you left foot straight, extend your arm to the sides, with palms downwards. Bend the knee of the right leg slightly but not past the leg. Focus over your arm, deep breadth and then repeat by switching sides. 10 times breadths each side. In yoga and during the exercises, always focus on your breadth.
This pose greatly helps not only to focus,but a great stretch to the legs, ankle and upper body.It helps strengthen the chest area.

Mountain Pose
Another very effective pose in yoga. For this pose  stand tall, with feet together and hand folded in Nameste. 
Take a deep breadth, raising your hands overhead, reach up to the sky. Feel the stretch in your arms.
As you breadth out , lower the arms back to the side. Repeat 10 times.


Dates with Almonds smoothie
This is an energy drink, saw a recipe on cooking show and am going to try it out.
Dates as we all know have lot of nutritional value, without the cholesterol , they make a good snack. Also they are loaded with fiber. Making this is as easy as saying 123, simply add the pitted dates ( make sure to take out the seed), almonds, milk,few drops vanilla essence, 2 tspn honey and blend together, adding few ice cubes. I loved this drink and I'm sure you will enjoy it too.


Ingredients (along with blender:)))

Grapes Juice 
The purple grapes not only look good, but they  taste very good too.
 The unique texture, sweet tart taste of grapes and nutritional value makes it a favourable to eat.
For grapes juice simply wash them with water. Put in a blender, add 1 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup crushed ice cubes and 2 tspn chat powder. Here I also added 2 apples, but you can add any other fruit of your choice.
