Hi Friends! I have been loving my morning green smoothies and wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with you! It’s such a nice way to start your day because they are light, refreshing, cleansing, detoxifying, and super nutritive. I have personally been focusing on healing and nourishing my digestion, which is why this recipe includes lots of digestive tonic plants. The ginger, turmeric, and aloe are excellent for the digestive tract because they soothe inflammation and indigestion. I suggest only using the gel of the aloe and not the whole leaf, because the leaf has laxative affects. The burdock root is a blood and liver cleanser, the celery is good for boosting hydrochloric acid production which helps break down food in your stomach. Greens contain fiber and chlorophyll which help clean the digestive tract and lemon juice is a great whole body cleanser. The mint, berries, and lime…

Modified Plank / Push-Up – Works arms and abs  Hey Friends! We are now a few months into the new year and I am proud to say that I have been sticking to my fitness goal of working out 3-4 times per week! Honestly, in the past I had not kept a workout rhythm. I would dabble in different exercises and try different studios (which is still fun to mix things up!), but I wasn’t consistent. I finally wondered to myself, “I take the time to eat clean and healthy and incorporate superfoods and herbs into my diet, but why can’t I exercise regularly? Something has to change!” And it has! My body and mind feel so much better after a workout, even if it’s just a quick one. While I am exercising my mind is so focused on getting through a movement or posture, that I am not thinking…

Do you ever find yourself running late in the morning but you still need a healthy breakfast to start out the day? Well I sure do. When I have the time to cook eggs and veggies (and bacon of course!) then by all means, I enjoy it! But when I need a quick and easy breakfast, I turn to superfood smoothies. There’s lots of ways you can mix up your smoothie recipes and I am going to share one of my current favorite superfood smoothie recipe with you!

Valentine’s Day is almost here and in the spirit of love, I would like to share some of the ways that I have learned to show myself love. Self esteem exercises aren’t always easy for us to do, but they are so important, and once you figure out your favorite ways to show yourself love, it feels so good! There are endless things that you can do to care for yourself, you just have to find the things that bring you the most joy! Here is my list of self love tips: Paint your nails (while listening to your favorite music) or get your nails done at a salon. It feels so glamorous but doesn’t break the bank. Buy yourself little gifts, like fresh flowers, chocolate, or a little piece of jewelry. Take a bath with candles, dried rose petals, bath salts, and music. So relaxing on a cold…

It’s that time of year again~ time to set goals and resolutions for the New Year ahead! I feel like this can be exciting and challenging at the same time. To be honest, I haven’t always been the best at journaling  about my goals and then really remembering to hold myself accountable throughout the year. But I’m hoping this year will be different! My husband and I are writing down our goals together and will keep each other accountable! Here is my New Year goals list: 1. Maintain a Consistent Fitness Routine~ I have  liked dabbling in different workouts throughout the years, but this year I want to maintain a regular routine. I will still mix things up though! My favorites are yoga, hiking, barre classes, and floor routines at home (there’s some great Youtube fitness channels!). My goal is to do a workout 3-5 days a week. 2. Move to…

I recently popped into our local Juice Bar here in Boulder, called Wonderpress, after a yoga class, for a tasty green juice. They have a super cute and chic little space, which was totally packed, which is why these pictures were taken outside! Wonderpress offers a variety of flavors and veggie combinations. I love grabbing a green juice on the go as an easy, nutritious snack! Sometimes it can be tricky to get a full daily dose of veggies with our busy schedules and green juices are a great way to get more vegetables into your diet. I always like to get Organic whenever possible to avoid pesticides and also try to avoid the ones with lots of added fruits as those have higher sugar levels. Some of my other favorite green juice benefits are:  Flushing the body of toxins Rich in chlorophyll, which is an excellent intestinal cleanser and…
