My favourite way to start off a day is to take a deep breath, stretch and walk into my studio. In my studio I’ll warm up my hands, do some finger exercises and then take out my instrument. I look at my music and most of the time I’ll turn it around so I cannot see what the sheet music says, and I’ll just start playing. I put my bow on the string and do a long, steady bow to make a clean sound. As I am starting to wake up more, I start to put one finger at a time on my instrument. At this point I am flying through my scales one by one with grace and ease (hopefully). After I play 10 or so scales I’ll put down my violin and go into the kitchen to have the other thing I love. FOOD! Who else just loves food? I’m guessing by now your thinking “food” would be like eggs, toast, bacon maybe some other kind of meat? Well I am almost thinking the opposite, I think smoothies with leafy greens in them! Doesn’t that sound delicious?! Well.. I think you’ll have to try one before you say anything to quickly 🙂 I look around and find some sort of leafy green like lettuce, kale, or spinach. Then I’ll look for maybe a fruit like an apple or orange, add some water, wheatgrass, and chia seeds and there is my very healthy and yummy breakfast. This is an awesome way to start the day as well as be energized! I love being full of energy, thats why I decided over 7 years ago to be 80% raw/vegan.
If you want to try a green smoothie here is the ingredients:
2 cups of water, 1 apple, 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of kale, 1 tbs of chia seeds and 1 shot of wheatgrass
I hope you guys enjoyed!
Have an Awesome day!
