ginger + lemon + matcha = energy and glowing skin on the go!

The last few weeks have been crazy busy and I need to keep my energy up.  Sipping this drink throughout the day has really helped.  (Blasting “24K Magic” doesn’t hurt either…never gets old!)

As much as I love my coffee in the am, if I drink too much later in the day I feel wired.  This is a nice alternative…way more hydrating, and I have no trouble falling asleep at night.

This mixture of ginger, lemon and matcha is quick to put together and tastes refreshing.  Pour it in a cute bottle (like my daniel glass) and you’re good to go!matcha-drink-eliz Continue reading

I tried a new recipe….

that was pretty amazing.  It was the Easy Weeknight Greek Fish Skillet from my friend Kelly Winters over at Primally Inspired.  Kelly has awesome recipes that are usually grain and dairy free.  If you haven’t checked her out, you should!

About the recipe…it was cod with spinach, tomatoes, lemon, oregano and kalamata olives, cooked in olive oil.  Delicious and so easy, since it was all in one pan.

It got me to thinking…how else could I use those same flavors?
