Seven Smoothie Bowl Recipes

These Seven Smoothie Bowl Recipes are the perfect way to wake up in the morning. Dense full of nutrients but also tasty, you’ll feel like you are having dessert for breakfast!

Hello hello! Sorry for the lack of posting on Friday, on Thursday I ended up with a bout of stomach flu and didn’t have it in me for a Friday post.  Not to be a Debbie Downer but this is the fourth time in a year I’ve come down with it and I’m getting a little more than frustrated! Any tips here?

Ok, on to better topics! Food. How was that for a transition? 

If 2016 is anything, it is the year of the bowls.  And one of my favorite types of bowls are smoothie bowls.  I love a smoothie but something about having it in a bowl and eating it with a spoon is so much more satisfying.  First of all, I don’t finish it in 30 seconds and it leaves me feeling a bit more full, probably because they are a bit denser. Seven Healthy Smoothie Bowl Recipes

Today I’ve rounded up Seven Smoothie Bowl Recipes for you to try!  Plus, I’ve got a few smoothie bowl hacks for you.

Summer Countdown Workout Plan: Yoga + Pilates

Hello hello! How has your week been so far?  I swear my days just fly by and before I know it the sun is setting.  

Welcome to Week 2 of the Summer Countdown Workout Plan!  In case you missed it, each week for the next four weeks I’m posting a new set of workouts to help get you in shape and ready to go for summer.  Last week we tackled a take-it-outside barre class and this week we are adding in a mix of yoga and pilates–two of my favorite modalities for stretch and strength.  As with my barre workout, you can take this workout outdoors.  Just grab your mat and find an inspiring spot whether it be on the grass, under a huge tree, by the pool, on the beach or wherever you like!

Farm to Table

Hello!  How was your weekend?  We had an especially good one, with a delicious Thai dinner on Friday night followed by 2 games of doubles tennis on Saturday.  Although one of the highlights of the weekend was heading about an hour and a half outside of the city to visit a local farm.
