Shona’s Sun Salutation

Shona’s Sun Salutation
by Gabriel Constans

This smoothie is one of our son Shona’s favorites. It is good for small children, since the ice-cold water helps to relieve some of the pain of teething. It also gets your motor running in the morning. It has a good aftertaste and “tickles the mouth.” Sunflower seeds add just the right amount of sweetness.

Twist & Shout

Twist and Shout
by Gabriel Constans

The Twist was a popular dance, and a song by Chubby Checker, that swept the nation in the early 1960s. You put one foot in front of the other and twist your body from side to side, lifting one foot at a time for emphasis and bending your knees up and down. When you’re finished doing The Twist, try this smoothie – it’ll give you something to shout about.
