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…

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Schedules are good. Schedules add structure, we need structure in our lives. Well, at least I do. Especially now being at home by myself a lot I need to set a schedule for myself every day of every week, discipline, structure and lists, every morning. At least I live for making lists. I am always making lists. I have stacks upon stacks of cute note pads from here and there – I think its an obsession. But I know the best of us have notepad and lists obsessions. tangent.. I am my own boss now and I need to be…

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…

Raw Beets with Avocado, Grapefruit and Sprouts Sandwich.

This is a very summery sandwich to me. Its bright, light, refreshing and surprisingly delicious! I personally love beets! Most people around me in my life don’t care for them too much (I’m pretty sure they are just scared), but I cannot get enough of that delicious beautiful veg. Not only are they yummy but they are slam packed with nutrients, antioxidants, electrolytes and dietary nitrates. They also have a long list of health benefits, some including: Improve energy and stamina (because we all need more energy!) Support heart health Maintaining healthy blood pressure Promoting circulation…
