About Me

Berry Smoothie Bowl

Dude, have you ever had a smoothie bowl? They were all the rage when I was in college. Then I graduated and completely forgot about them. A smoothie bowl, in a nutshell is thick smoothie topped with awesome. It can be simple, topped with berries and granola or totally elaborate. You may recall a controversial fact about me; I hate smoothies. However these are sooooo not smoothies. Smoothie bowls have substance, crunch and tons of healthy goodies in every bite. You’re not trying to consume your breakfast through a straw. Which I hate and don’t get at all. Is that supposed to make me full? Nope. Fail. On the contrary, smoothie bowls are a delicious and filling way to start your day. And they’re healthy! Hooray!

10 Healthy Recipes To Try

Last week was not my healthiest week. In fact, this hasn’t been my healthiest summer. Bad habits are like Pringles, once you pop you just can’t stop. It’s so easy to get into a routine of vegging; eating junk food and drinking beer. Exercise? No thank you, it’s summer! What I always forget when I start down this all-too-familiar road to Candyland is that eating crap makes me feel like crap. Similarly I feel awesome when I eat well and exercise regularly. Though it can be difficult to change negative habits, you should know, good habits are also like Pringles. A few weeks of intentional positive behavior will quickly become an easy routine. So this week I’m running away from the gingerbread house, exercising and eating better. Who’s with me?
