After yoga class on Saturday, I was craving iced coffee, chocolate and a smoothie. I didn't want to pay $4 for an iced coffee (I've been getting coffee shop coffee a little too much lately), so I whipped something up in my kitchen to satisfy all of my cravings (and save some $).

This smoothie is Ah-Mazing!! I didn't want it to end!

Happy Tuesday! I'm late posting my weekend recap because I had an exhausting (but wonderful) weekend in yoga teacher training and then I was in Omaha all day Monday for a visit with my functional medicine doctor. 

Today I'm getting caught up on emails, scheduling health coaching sessions, blogging, doing laundry and preparing for the college class I'll be teaching (which starts next week!)…oh yeah, and working at my full-time job. My life is crazy and amazing.

Back in July, I had the most amazing salted caramel milkshake while I was visiting Atlanta. Since that life-changing milkshake, I've been working to create a perfect healthified non-dairy smoothie version.

After many attempts, I finally created a version that tastes decadent and delicious!

And this might be my favorite smoothie that I've ever made! It is so so good.

Health Coach Eats {What I Eat in a Day - May 9, 2017}

What's a typical day of eats look like for a health coach? I'm giving you a special look at all of my real life meals!

One of the questions I get asked the most is what I eat on a day-to-day basis or what diet I prescribe to. 

If you've been hanging out here at Sweet Success for awhile, then you probably know that I don't diet. I don't follow a diet and I don't think diets work for the long term. 

I eat based on what I feel my body needs in the moment. How exactly does that work? 

When I'm in the kitchen eyeing the tortilla chips and guacamole (happens frequently), I take a moment to think about how that will serve me, why I'm craving it, and whether I actually need something more nourishing. Sometimes I go for the chips and guac, and other times I make something that will make me feel more satisfied.

It took me awhile to learn how to eat intuitively, and I'm not perfect. But I like the freedom of eating without counting calories or macronutrients, and it allows me to pay attention to what my body needs from day to day.

I'm typically all about the smoothie, but I changed things up this week and made a smoothie bowl!

I'm a fan of of the smoothie bowl because it resembles ice cream, it takes a little longer to eat than a smoothie, and it's the perfect warm weather snack.

I'm getting a little crazy with my green smoothie making! I added a special ingredient to this smoothie that helps with digestion. 

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