“Have A Great Day” Smoothie


I took an early yoga class this morning and during our practice, the teacher asked us to set an intention for our day. My intention was to have a great day and to live life to the fullest, and when I got home from class I made this lovely smoothie for work with ingredients both from the farmer’s market (strawberries & oranges) and from my cupboards. I couldn’t figure out what to call this smoothie, but it was delicious and I wanted to share the recipe, so I am calling this my ‘Have A Good Day’ smoothie 🙂

4 Easy Ways To Make Your Life More Sustainable

Instead, it’s quite the opposite: I feel lighter & happier on a daily basis. So with that, here is my list of 4 ways to live a more sustainable life.

My Morning Zen Juice


I’ve been attempting to quit coffee for a while now & I have to be honest: it’s really hard since I often work 12 to 18 hours a day (I’m a film & video editor). I’ll have a more in-depth article about why I’m quitting coffee & tips on how to do it if you’re in the same boat in the next month, but for now I wanted to share one of my new favorite replacements: a lovely little morning zen juice with only 110- 115 calories. (Note: I drink this juice in addition to eating breakfast, this is not a meal replacement).
