Renewal should never come at one designated point each year—as human animals we are far too dynamic to be beholden to the burden of change dictated by calendar. Jobs come and go, relationships shift, and the core fiber of who we are is tested not just daily, but moment to moment.
Every morning we must choose: Who am I today?
With this luscious summer superfood smoothie bowl, we begin anew.
Cherries remind us of the (fleeting) sumptuous sweetness of summer, cacao of the bittersweet joy of past and the possibility of what lies ahead, hemp of the raw power we need to face each day’s challenges, and bee pollen of the golden fruits our industriousness may bring. Topped off with blood strengthening spirulina (blue green algae) and tropical toasted coconut, this smoothie bowl will usher in a supercharged new you.
