I love love love my green smoothies. It's the perfect way to satisfy my sweet tooth and feed my body lots of nutrition.

I admit, however, that green smoothies can sometimes turn out slightly….earthy. And there is nothing worse than have little bits of green leaves floating around in your smoothie. So there is a bit of an art to making the perfect green smoothie.

*Nuts.com provided the inspiration for me to share how I use spirulina.

During the summer, I am a smoothie-making machine! I actually love smoothies all year round, but smoothies taste even more delicious when it's extra hot outside.

I really don't have a go-to smoothie. I like to mix things up to keep my smoothies interesting. But I do love making green smoothies. They always turn out so beautifully, and they are packed with nutrients.

One of the ingredients I always add to my green smoothies is spirulina, a blue-green micro-algae that grows in fresh water lakes and streams. Why?!?!? You might be asking me/yourself.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The BF and I didn't have any major plans for the weekend...he had to work and I had to run. 

When I wasn't running, I was eating, doing a bit of work, celebrating my niece's birthday, listening to Serial and watching Jessica Jones on Netflix.

Here is a look at my weekend...

Simple 4-Step Sugar Detox

*This post contains links to nutrition products that I use daily. I've partnered with the company because I love and believe in the products!

If you're feeling bloated and tired from overindulging in sugary treats, it's time to detox!

Although I don't detox regularly, I do think it can be beneficial if you've been eating too much sugar and you find yourself having uncontrollable sugar cravings.

Detoxing can be especially helpful after a treat-filled holiday. If you don't ditch the sugar immediately after your holiday sugar binge, you'll find yourself craving sugar and indulging in more sugar for days, weeks or even months. Then it will be even harder to ditch the sweets!

So get started today with my simple sugar detox!

I wrote a post like this in January and fully intended to make it a monthly thing because I thought it was so fun. 

Ummmm, that didn't happen. It's now December and I'm finally writing the second post in this series.

But I'm bringing it back this week because I need something fun and light amidst my annoyingly long to do list. So here we go!

Weekend Recap {Dec. 16-18, 2016}

Posted December 20, 2016 in Weekend Recap, yoga, gingerbread energy balls and 8 more

It's Christmas week! I love this time of year, and I'm really grateful that I've been able to do some of my favorite holiday things - make gingerbread houses, drive around and look at Christmas lights, watch cheesy Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies, decorate sugar cookies and more. 

I have just a few more days of work and then I'm off work until the New Year! Getting time off during Christmas is definitely a great perk of working at a university.

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed celebrating the end of 2016 and welcoming the new year. 

My New Year's weekend was pretty low key, which was nice. We spent New Year's Eve with friends enjoying good food and champagne, and playing games. The rest of the weekend was slow moving and relaxing. 

Here's a recap of my weekend...

Happy Tuesday!

I took Monday off from work to go to a medical appointment and a meeting in Lincoln, so I'm a little behind on getting myself organized for the week. 

Over the weekend, the BF and I went to Omaha to join the Women's March. It was an incredible experience, and really helped me to feel more hopeful and positive after the inauguration. 

Here's a recap...

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...

Beauty Greens Smoothie

While I believe that using non-toxic skincare and beauty products is important, I believe it's just as important to nourish your skin by eating a healthy diet. 

I notice a major difference in my skin when I'm eating well. When my diet is full of nourishing greens, healthy fats and protein, and I'm drinking plenty of water, my skin is glowing. 

When I'm eating more sugar, enjoying more cocktails than usual or if I have a couple slices of pizza, my skin breaks out, isn't as glowy, and my under eye circles and wrinkles are more pronounced. 

I love the way that I feel when my skin looks and feels healthy, so I'm all about filling my diet with those skin nourishing foods. Lately, I've been drinking a green smoothie with some special ingredients that have specific skin benefits.

Probiotics! While this may not be a common smoothie ingredient, it's definitely one that should be used more often!
