As a Kundalini Yoga teacher, I have been trained to realise that not only is the body always on the move, but the cells within are constantly created while being destroyed. By regenerating and dying, cells perform these endless cycles. The renewal happens at different rates throughout the body and is affected both positively and negatively by the food we eat. Therefore, it is vital to prevent sluggishness from the inside out. Most fresh foods can aid this mechanism, but this superfood multi-berry smoothie steals the show taste-wise. Everyone in my family loves it and it’s not necessary to stick to fresh berries only. Frozen berries maintain their nutritional properties just as well.
