the juicy truth...

{sources 1//2//3}

Breaking some serious radio silence here. Instead of apologizing for an absurdly long leave of absence I want to share an update. I believe I  have  finally kicked my coffee addiction- almost 5 months clean. I am not someone who can enjoy it in moderation. My moderation was a minimum of 5 cups a day. Pretty unreasonable and really not so gentle on my body. I am fully surfing the juice wave and I LOVE IT! I swaped out my dark mistress for a morning ritual of green juice, a cup of matcha tea, and a solid vitamin B capsule. I hope you don't mind if this space becomes a little more devoted to health and wellness. IT WILL NEVER BE PREACHY, I promise! I just want to share what tips/tricks/changes I have found helpful. Oh... and I'm going to try and get my yoga instructor certification. Any words of encouragement would be so appreciated. 

So a few months ago we splurged on a Breville and even though I still adore my Vitamix, I must say that this new toy is just fantastic. It is amazing how many vegetables I can squeeze into my meals now and the energy boost feels so much cleaner and more even than my coffee jolt ever did. I have yet to do a full on juice cleanse... a little too intense for me at this point. Anyway, here is my favorite combination of greens for a morning pick-me-up.

                                               morning glory juice

                                               1 bunch of kale

                                               1 head of romaine

                                               1 granny smith apple

                                               1 zucchini

                                               1 lemon{peeled}

                                               1 lime {peeled}

 

*I still am styling, by the way! I have a long backlog of shoots that I have been meaning to post since May...eek!

Hi! I checked over by chance to see if you were here...and you are! I started taking yoga in April...and I found a new love. I had no idea I would love something so much- or that my body would either. Yay for going for it! :) (As I take a huge swig of coffee...I don't think I could ever give her up.)
