Another way to glow on the go…

is with this ginger/matcha concoction I’ve been drinking lately.

I’ve been taking it pretty much everywhere in a cute travel cup, and it’s made from ingredients that are amazing for your skin and body.

(Oh, and if you’re wondering about the other way I glow on the go…it’s by taking pretty little travel packs of collagen peptides with me to mix into coffee or other hot drinks.  Here’s a link to the original post:

So let me tell you more about this drink… Continue reading

Cauliflower is like a little black dress…

very versatile.

black dress cauli

I bought this one at Forever 21 a few years ago.  With wedges, hoops and a jean jacket it’s good for a casual lunch.  Booties and a pleather jacket give it a badass edge.  And it can totally be dressed up with strappy sandals.

And you can do just as many things with cauliflower.  Actually, more.

Which is pretty awesome.

Because cauliflower is high in fiber and vitamin C.  Eating foods high in fiber keeps you satiated, which can be helpful for weight loss.  Vitamin C is amazing for your skin.  It can have a brightening effect and supports the production of new collagen for firm and healthy skin.  Cauliflower is also high in phytonutrients that support our cardiovascular, digestive, immune and detoxification systems.  

So eat your cauliflower!

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookies…

“Like a Virgin”

is one of my all-time favorite Madonna songs.

Especially her performance at the 1984 MTV VMAs with the wedding dress and boy-toy belt. 

I like the early 80’s, dark roots, black plastic bracelet Madonna.  And pretty much copied her style back in the day.  Minus the boy-toy belt.

As I discussed in a previous post (Has your olive oil lost its virginity?) most extra virgin olive oil is not as pure as it claims to be.  Kind of like Madonna in the above-mentioned song.

But I’ve found some olive oil that is not only pure, but tastes totally amazing. Continue reading

My top five tips…

top 5

for a better body without making yourself crazy.

Earlier in the week I went live on Instagram to talk about the simple ass, abs and arms workouts that I post every Monday.  During that live I shared these five tips. 

Since the video is no longer up there (they disappear after 24 hours) I decided to post them here as well.

None of this stuff is earth shattering.  It’s all pretty basic info that you already know.  Sometimes you just need a reminder.  So here you go… Continue reading
