Must Have Mondays: Shake it up!!

vega one

One of my absolute favorite must-haves of the moment is the Vega One protein powder. I got completely hooked on this stuff while doing a recent cleanse… now I just don’t feel right without my morning shake. This stuff not only tastes great [great texture and no chalky after taste], but it is packed with some serious good-for-you goods. Between the protein, fiber, probiotics, greens, omega-3s and antioxidants it provides 50% of the recommended daily intake [RDI] of vitamins and minerals plus it’s totally allergen friendly! It is plant based, completely vegan, and gluten freeyay! It’s available at Whole Foods and many health food stores. I have both the chocolate and vanilla flavors. Each morning I mix a scoop with some frozen berries, unsweetened vanilla almond milk or coconut milk, and a half a banana or some frozen mango… mmmmm! If health is one of your goals for the new year… this is a great thing to incorporate into your daily routine. So mix it up… drink it down… and cheers to a happy and healthy you!

Happy first day of summer!!

It’s official… summer has ARRIVED! That means sunshine, BBQs, beaches, and bikinis! Today the sun will reach its highest point in the sky at 7:09 pm. [this is the summer solstice and marks the official start of summer] To kick off the season I am doing a 3 day juice cleanse. Today is day 2 and I’m loving it so far :) Yesterday’s juice was my favorite… but today’s is a very close 2nd. It consists of [apple, celery, cucumber, ginger, parsley & spinach (yum!!)]  and is delish. Full post including a summary of the cleanse, my opinion, and most importantly results to come! I can’t wait to share with all of you on Friday :)
