As I find myself quite ill-equipped to do workouts with one leg, I would like to share with you some that quite adequately suit the pirate-life, I find myself currently disposed to. So, speaking pirate to pirate, I will give you the “guidelines” (Pirate’s of the Carribean, anyone?). As, I’m sure you would assume, dear reader, it is quite a deal-breaker for the casted leg(s). However, fortuitously, this injury may give your arms and abs, a leg up (pun intended).

Along with working out, I eat a lot of fruits and veggies. Since I live so far out in the boondocks it’s quite a bit easier not to indulge in fast-food. If you’ve followed my previous posts I have shared a jolly good number of my favorite Nutri-bullet recipes. Which, I like having either before breakfast or as a protein pick-up after a workout. I’m a huge Pop-eye, tying into our pirate scheme when it comes to smoothies, which is quite fortunate being that we have a hoop house full of kale and spinach. Lots of iron and magnesium!

I also enjoy giving my Nutri-bullet a taste of delicious fruits. Quite a treat, let me tell you I have found the Pumba of fruit smoothies. I use turmeric and cinnamon that have gut healthy anti-inflammatory compounds and boosts your brain power. Perhaps a bit of a shock to your “normal” herb drawer, but, I daresay a magnificent one, at that! Here’s my recipe to cleanse your palate.


Spicy Peach Smoothie



3 ice cubes


spinach or kale




Add all the ingredients to your Nutri-bullet except the honey, blend until smooth. Next, dip a swath your spoon across the honey gathering up quite a bit stir into smoothie gently. Then return mixture onto Nutri-bullet and blend. This should leave you with a smooth spicy peach smoothie. Delightfully, rich and fit for a king, if I do say so myself.
