10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse Pt.2

Alright so, It’s day 6. This junk is hard y’all! Don’t get me wrong, it is totally doable. Just make sure you are keeping yourself busy and preferably not at home. Sitting trying to work, draw and write makes me just want to snack, snack, snack! Although snacking is totally acceptable and mandatory on this cleanse but I am afraid I am snacking too much. Granted I am just snacking on carrots, celery and nuts, but maybe too much? I don’t know. After 5 full days (and a fun-size Snickers bar…

10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

So I started a cleanse yesterday. The sun is warm and shining, all the windows in my house are open, birds chirping, bees buzzing and I’m realizing it’s all of a sudden dress and shorts weather. I am not prepared. I don’t really know what has happened to my body under all the layers of sweatshirts and pants this winter. All I know is it’s time to kick my butt back into gear. So yesterday I started a fabulous cleanse and started a new workout routine, a hybrid of two if my…

It’s Peanut Soup…and March?!

Happy March 1st. Really, I can’t believe it’s March already – MARCH!? So let’s start the new month with eating well, eating green, eating balanced and eating good! This post was meant for Monday, but we are posting it today – let’s just keep that a secret. I have been a bit slack lately, I don’t know where along the last couple weeks I became so un motivated. I started this month with extreme laser focus and then POOF it all disappeared. Maybe it’s my lack of discipline…

Broccoli and Greens Soup

Do you ever get sick of your green smoothies? They seem to get boring and monotonous? Why not try a green soup? Some soups are almost as easy to whip up as a smoothie, like this one. This soup is so light and refreshing, yet satisfying and won’t sit heavy in your belly. You can set out and conquer the day after a mug of this elixir. I think this soup is best had for a light lunch. Nobody likes that heavy feeling in their bellies half way through the day, especially when you know how much work…

Cosmic Coconut and Black Bean Brownies

So first off I have to confess something; I have Zayn Malik’s new song PILLOWTALK on repeat. Like for real – It’s good. Not the actual content of the song, but his dreamy dreamy voice and the song is catchy or something…no really it’s just his voice. Although, I can’t bring myself to enjoy the music video, it’s just Gigi Hadid in yet another music video, and…another guy having his hot model girlfriend in his music video. C’mon the shits not original, get it…

What’s on my mind? Wednesday. 1/27/16

A couple days ago I said I wasn’t going to drink coffee for two weeks… It’s a thing I do when I feel like I have become dependent on coffee and crave it at all hours of the day. One of my friends told me years ago that it’s what he does when he feels the same way, so I tried it out. The first few days are hard, but you eventually get over it and the two weeks will fly by. I found other outlets, like lots and lots of tea. Green…

Raw Chocolate

So I love chocolate, you love chocolate, he loves chocolate, my cats love chocolate…well I mean, I’m sure they would love chocolate. Chocolate doesn’t need to explain itself, it always gets us, right when we need it, you know? What would you say to the best DIY, quick, nutritious, vegan, create your own chocolate? uh, HECK YES! With very few ingredients and very little time you can create a nutrient rich snack that will help to keep your skin and hair healthy and your mind sane. So what am I even talking about? Raw…

The Converter’s Brussels Sprouts

DSCN0078Brussels sprouts are one of those veggies where even as grown-ass-adults people get weird about them. They are just thought to be strange baby cabbages that smell like well, farts. Chances are those people haven’t actually consumed a Brussels sprout since they were 5 and no doubt, hated them.
