So how do those two things even end up in the same title? Can super bowl Sunday ever be done naturopathically? Well, since many of you are going to watch and celebrate anyways I thought I would at least try…..
Since I just happen to be in Mexico for Super Bowl 2017 my suggestions are inspired by a slightly warmer climate than most of you may experience but just turn up the heat and it will be all the same….
Firstly, you should know I’m not a football fan at all and I am only really interested in the half time show and the commercials if its an American channel.
Start your day with some exercise and a good sweat, yes you have time for this since the game doesn’t start until 3:30 pm PST. You do this so you are forced to rehydrate and now rehydrate again because it’s probably not going to happen later today.
Skip the beer, too much yeast and wheat, and go for my margaritas instead. (Just turn up the volume on the TV to cover the blender noise. Magic bullets are not just for smoothie.)
Mexican Smoothies (serves two)
6 key limes juiced
2 ounces tequila
1 ounce controy (Mexican orange liqueur, less sweet and less expensive than Cointreau)
½ blender of ice
1 tbs agave syrup
Fresh or frozen fruit (only if you did not get your fruit portion today)
Now for the snacks (gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free). Guacamole, salsa and organic corn chips. The fat of the avocados helps deal with the alcohol and the salsa is full of vitamins.
2 large ripe avocados mashed
½ white onion or 4 green onions chopped small
1 Roma tomato chopped small
½ bunch of fresh cilantro
1 key lime juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of cayenne
Pico de Gallo
½ white onion chopped small
3-4 Roma tomatoes chopped small
½ yellow pepper chopped (l leave this out because I don’t like bell peppers but it brings colour)
1 key lime juice
1 jalapeño pepper seeds removed and chopped small
½ bunch fresh cilantro
Salt (be generous)
A little Cholula hot sauce (Mexican version of Franks) if you want it hotter or wetter.
ENJOY and don’t forget your charcoal before bed!
