Nourishing the body is just the beginning.
We start there... and love to celebrate alongside you as you discover what truly lights you up and then go for it. (Like trail running with these incredible ladies from @oiselle!) So what's your latest passion? Please COMMENT below so I can get some ideas for future collaborations.

This is my go-to green smoothie when I have an early or busy morning (a lot of times it's both these days 😉). Why do I love it?
✨The avocado + hemp hearts give me healthy fat + protein to keep me full.
✨The coconut water helps keep me hydrated (did you know dehydration and tiredness are linked?).
✨The spinach, mango, and pear are packed with nutrients to keep my body + brain fueled!
BLEND this up today and let me know what you think!
BRAIN FUEL | Serves One
1 ½ cups fresh spinach
1 cup coconut water, unsweetened
1 ripe pear, cored
½ cup mango, frozen
¼ avocado
2 tablespoons hemp hearts

This is always a great reminder after the weekend. Am I the only one who has no problem eating leafy greens + lots of whole foods during the week, and then the weekend comes around and I'm like CHOCOLATE!!!
. happens. Today is a new day, and a new week! Let's get back on track together and make the last week of April (whatttt? where is the time going?!) the best week ever!
Share with a friend who could use a little Monday motivation!

Smoothie Bowl Sunday! What are your plans for the day? My suggestion...blend up this Mango and Pineapple Green Smoothie Bowl and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
1 cup almond milk
2 cups spinach
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
2 tablespoons almond butter
1) Blend spinach + almond milk until smooth.
2) Add other ingredients and blend again.
3) Top with your favorite toppings! Hemp seeds, raw cacao nibs, granola, or berries are some of my personal favorites!

Celebrating Earth Day with lots of green! 🌎🌱💚Let's remember to be kind to our planet while we're nourishing our bodies. Here are a couple staples in my house that we use to help cut down on waste:
1) I use mason jars for almost everything! They're particularly great for prepping your smoothie ingredients in advance (you can freeze them!) so you don't need to use + throw away plastic baggies.
2) Metal straws! If I drink my smoothie without a straw, I usually end up with a green mustache (that is no joke!), so I almost always use a straw. Metal straws are my favorite because they're washable and I can use them again and again!
3) Counter-top composter. Strawberry tops? Apple cores? Veggie peelings? They go straight into my counter-top composter. I use this compost in potted pots + in my garden. It's a great soil conditioner and helps cut down on landfill waste!

When I was pregnant with my two kiddos Jackson and Clare, I was so incredibly excited, but I have to admit, I was also a little nervous. Knowing that what I put in my body while they were busy growing inside me really made me think about my food choices. Life definitely changes when you are growing a baby.
When you are pregnant it is important that you are giving your body a wide variety of nutrients—proteins, folic acids, calcium, omega 3s, magnesium, tons of vitamins, and more! Well, you know what can help you out in that department? Green Smoothies! Green smoothies have an abundance of these nutrients that are helpful for your growing baby and you.
Here is one of my favorite recipes that I pass along to all my friends who are expecting. In fact, I still drink + love this recipe, preggo or no!
P.S. Tag a friend who's a mama-to-be! I'm all about sharing the gift of health.
2 cups fresh spinach
2 cups coconut water, unsweetened
1 banana
1 cup pineapple
1 cup carrots, uncooked*
2 tbsp chia seeds
*Can steam carrots for a few minutes to blend more easily.
1) Blend spinach and coconut water
2) Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth

I always hear people tossing around the term "free radicals", but what does that actually mean? Well, there's a lot of chemistry behind it, but essentially free radicals make it harder to fight off infection, can damage DNA leading to cancer, and may accelerate the aging process. So how can you protect your body against these little guys?
Eat an antioxidant-rich diet! Fruits and veggies are filled with antioxidants that interact with free radicals and prevent cellular damage. If you really want to up your antioxidant intake, try this Free Radical Fighting Super Smoothie! Cantaloupes are a rich source of vitamin A (as beta-carotene) and vitamin C, which are important immunity and antioxidant vitamins. They also contain good levels of B vitamins and vitamin K. Blueberries rank the highest for antioxidants when it comes to fruit. Plus these tiny berries are full of vitamin C and fiber. Kale yeah to that!
P.S. Tag a friend who'd love this recipe, too!
2 cups spinach fresh
1 sprig mint fresh
1 cup water (optional)*
2 cups cantaloupe, ripe and rind removed
1/2 cup blueberries
1 apple
1/2 lime fresh, squeezed
*Cantaloupe is very water dense, so no liquid base is required. Add some water if you prefer a thinner smoothie.
1) Blend spinach, mint leaves, and ripe cantaloupe until smooth.
2) Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.
