A Green Kiwi Smoothie Bowl.

3 Meals for Your Heart Chakra: Feed Your Body Friday

Today, we are looking at recipes that balance the heart chakra. As the color of the heart chakra is green, it can be nourished with the many green vegetables like kale, spinach, chard, collard, lettuce and sprouts of all kinds, such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts.

The color green symbolizes harmony, freshness, and growth - all of which have been taken into account while preparing today’s recipes. Green is the most common color in nature and it balances and detoxifies the air. It does the same for our bodies!

Today we will be making…

  1. A Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl
  2. Avocado Toast (with variations)
  3. Kale Salad with a Tahini Vinaigrette

All of these green foods are detoxifying and neutralizing, meaning that they will feed and heal your Heart chakra while growing your heart connection.

Without further ado here are the recipes.

Green Goddess Smoothie Bowl

For breakfast, let’s start off with this invigorating green smoothie bowl that is full of spinach, kale, and kiwi. While you may shy away from something this green, we are adding elements like banana, mango, and kiwi to bring a touch of sweetness so that you don’t need to add sugar (but if you have a sweet tooth you can always add 1 tbsp of maple syrup or honey.)
