One of my favorite things about summer is fresh berries. They're so flavorful this time of year. 

On Sundays, I like to whip up a batch of chia pudding so that I have healthy snacks throughout the week. 

Because it's summer and I'm obsessed with berries, I added strawberries, blueberries and raspberries to my usual chia pudding recipe, and the result was this beautifully colored, delicious tasting summery chia pudding.

Summer is officially here, which means more hours of sunshine, spending more time outdoors and wearing all the maxi dresses!

I absolutely love this time of year. Even though I no longer have summers off, (remember those days?) I still think there's a feeling of freedom in the summertime. 

Maybe it's the longer days or all the opportunities to play outside. 

I've had people tell me that it's harder to eat healthy in the summer because of all the outdoor barbecues, summer cocktails and travel. 

I actually think it's easier to make healthy choices in the summer with the abundance of in-season fresh produce. The body also changes with the seasons, and we tend to crave lighter foods this time of year like giant salads and smoothies. And there's always room in our diets for summer cocktails and our favorite grilling out foods. 

But we could all use some simple strategies for staying healthy during the summer, so I'm sharing a few of my summer wellness hacks...

Weekend Recap {June 16-18, 2017} - Crab Boil

Posted June 19, 2017 in Weekend Recap, yoga, green smoothie and 6 more

Welcome to a new week!

I'm so excited for this week because the fiancé and I are leaving for a hiking adventure trip to Yosemite National Park! 

I, of course, have a bazillion things to do in the next few days (I overcommitted), but I'm really looking forward to the break.

Over the weekend, I taught three yoga classes, did some work, cleaned the house, ran errands to pick up last minute items for our trip and hung out with friends at a crab boil. It was mostly work with a little bit of fun and relaxation thrown in...

Enjoy the sandwich of summer - the BLT - with a vegetarian twist. Using tempeh bacon adds the flavors of bacon!

Nothing says summer like a BLT with a fresh tomato out of the garden. 

I can't even remember the last time I had one...because I don't eat bacon. 

If you're like me and avoid most animal proteins or you just want to try something new, I highly recommend making tempeh bacon. 

It's really easy - you just marinate it and cook it - and it picks up the flavors that used in the marinade.

When life gets busy or you overbook yourself, avoid burn out by using these two simple tips. 

Two-Simple-Tips-For-Avoiding-Burn-Out-Wh

I admit, I overbooked myself this month. 

This isn't something that's new to me. If you've been reading this blog for awhile, then you know that I tend to overcommit. 

My tendency to over schedule myself usually leads to me feeling overwhelmed and stressed, and eventually totally burned out. 

While I've overbooked myself once again, I'm doing two things differently that are helping me manage my stress. 

If you're an ambitious, worker bee like me, then this is for you!
