Vitamin C Blast Smoothie


If you're like most people, you hate getting sick. I love this time of year because of all the celebrating with friends and family. But, it's a total drag when you're down and out with a cold or bug. I try to be very diligent with hand-washing to rid myself of germs. But the number one best defense for staying healthy? A kick-ass immune system. 

I start every day with a smoothie. It's an easy way to get a boost of nutrients first thing. Today's smoothie was all about Vitamin C, which is great for fighting off the cold and flu.  Full recipe after the jump!

Yoga Playlist

I recently created this yoga playlist for a 90 minute vinyasa class. The warm-up lasted about 15ish minutes and then the class moved to a quick, fun and energetic flow. I've been hooked on Little May lately and just love the song "Boardwalks."

Summer Recipe: Beet Salad

Whenever possible, I try to consume only whole foods and use local ingredients. This beet salad recipe is no exception. It is only a few ingredients and you can increase or decrease the amounts to transform it from a side dish to the main meal!

Today's Thought

/ TODAY’S THOUGHT/

IN THE WORDS OF RALPH WALDO EMERSON, “SUCCESS: TO LAUGH OFTEN AND MUCH, TO WIN THE RESPECT OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE AND THE AFFECTION OF CHILDREN, TO APPRECIATE BEAUTY, TO FIND THE BEST IN OTHERS, TO LEAVE THE WORLD A BIT BETTER, WHETHER BY A HEALTHY CHILD, A GARDEN PATCH, OR A REDEEMED SOCIAL CONDITION, TO KNOW EVEN ONE LIFE HAS BREATHED EASIER BECAUSE YOU HAVE LIVED. THIS IS TO HAVE SUCCEEDED.”
