Homemade Suja Sunset Protein smoothie

Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? I confidently say it’s an improvement from yesterday. The Pilot is feeling much better (thank you for all of the get well wishes for him!), my eyes don’t feel like they’re on fire anymore (three cheers), and we all slept in. It’s like Christmas when that happens.

Thank you so much for sharing your healthy living budget tips this morning! There are so many amazing suggestions in there, and some that I’m going to work on implementing in our house ASAP. As far as getting free workouts at home, I put together some videos for Glutino’s blog with some favorite moves if you’d like to check it out! For food, I forgot to mention that a great money saver can be recreating restaurant or store-bought meals and snacks at home.

I did this one today with an at-home version of one of my favorite smoothies: Suja Sunset Protein! 

Homemade suja sunset

This smoothie tastes like a delicious dessert and the nutrition stats are awesome (10g protein and 160 calories), which make it a great post-workout option. After scanning the ingredients, I realized they were mostly items we had here at home, so I decided to give it a try.

Persimmon and goji berry smoothie

  SO MUCH fall produce to be excited about! From the squash everything to the apple varieties, it’s definitely a diverse group of delicious options. My very favorite: the persimmon. I didn’t have my first persimmon until we were living in Valdosta, and I bought one on a whim. At first I was like “how […]

Treadmill total toaster workout

Hi! How’s your morning going? Kind of a huge fan of this shorter week; the weekend is almost already here 😉  Still going strong: the green juice and green tea combo. (Juice with apple, spinach, cucumber, lemon, mint and ginger. The mint makes it taste so cooling and refreshing!) Can’t really say the same about […]

Banana split smoothie

Hi! Happy Wednesday to ya 🙂 How’s the day going so far? This week has already been a lot of fun. I took Livi to her yoga class and we planted some herbs in the garden. I might eat my words later, but I feel like you really have to work to kill plants here. […]

Homemade healthy Orange Julius

Hi 🙂 Thanks for all of the love with my last post! I appreciate the kind words so much. I’m still feeling pretty refreshed and awesome after yesterday, too <3  Whenever I visit a new spot, try a new restaurant, or whenever someone else cooks something and I get to eat it, I’m inspired to […]

Juice thirty

Hiiii 🙂 How’s your day been? Livi has a bit of a cold, so we’ve been laying low over here. My madre came over for a little while so I could drop off our tax documents, and I brought back La Parrilla soup for the the three of us. Their chicken and rice soup is […]

Vitamin C smoothie

Hi friends! I’m off to Boston this morning for a fun Reebok event. This post was supposed to go up much earlier, but as I was about to upload, we had a bit of a… situation. One of the engines in the plane malfunctioned and we made an emergency landing in Dallas. It was the […]

Apple pie smoothie

Even though it’s close to 100 degrees, I can still feel a hint of fall in the air. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I’m gonna roll with it 😉  Even though the weather in Tucson is always a little late to the “it’s autumn now!” party, there are always fun events to look forward […]

NEW hotel room circuit

Whenever I get back from vacation, I’m always kind of scared to resume my full teaching schedule again. Even after just a week off, I can feel the difference and am usually sluggish, especially during Zumba. This week: not the case at all. Maybe 9 days of carb loading in Italy will do that for […]

My version of the Bowl of the Gods

You knows it’s serious when you can’t stop thinking about a smoothie bowl. I don’t even love smoothie bowls all that much. Sure, I like them, and it’s a way to shake up the breakfast routine, but what can be sooooo special about eating your smoothie like a soup? Apparently a lot of things. I’ve […]
