It’s officially official… 2014 has arrived… and frankly, I’m pretty freaking stoked. I am beyond ready for a new year and a fresh start. 2013 was great, don’t get me wrong, but there is just something so invigorating about that feeling of starting new. My goals and aspirations for this year are bigger and better than ever, and I have a funny feeling that 2014 is going to be kind of magical.

I did NOT ring in the new year in my typical fashion ( meaning a tight dress, loud music, way too much champagne, and a wicked hangover come January 1st ). Nope. Instead I went on a fantastic run, worked, worked, worked, lounged around in my sweats, sipped on green juice ’til my little heart was content ( stay tuned for my fav recipe ), and watched the ball drop… East Coast time. I know what you are thinking. Slow down, Katie… that lifestyle will kill you.

Seriously though, it was kind of refreshing. 2014 is all about health, happiness, and productivity. ← Cheers to that! Don’t worry, I did enjoy some champs while watching Kathie Lee & Hoda’s “A Toast to 2013”. LOL. What are those two on… and how can I get some? I kid, I kid.

Soooo… spill! How did you ring in the new year? What’s your biggest wish for 2014? Thanks for making 2013 so amaze, and I promise LOTS of exciting things in the year to come ;)


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!
