Hope you’re havin a splendid week so far. Happy hump day! Did you see yesterday’s post about my secret period hack for bloating…? It really, truly works!
My morning water was Mermaid Lemonade! Mostly because spirulina is on the list for the luteal phase – and Mermaid Lemonade is so dang puuurty. Sometimes my morning hydration is lemon water, sometimes it’s good old plain water, but you guys know I won’t go without lots of water first thing… every single morning! Is it weird to show you my water intake?! I don’t know ha, but itis imperative for keeping my skin clear and smooth.
P.S. >> I use this huge 32 ounce mason jar all day every day because I can measure out how much I’m drinking (I aim for 2-3 liters per day) and I’m not wasting plastic water bottles. I also use this water filter which is a zillion times better than Brita, but any filtered water is better than tap so do what you can.
I’ve been waking up pretty hungry lately, so I quicklymade a protein smoothie with 2 slices of avocado toast, topped with hemp seeds and red pepper flakes. It made for the perfect breakfast, along with my supplements too.
Green Protein Smoothie:
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 tablespoons chia
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1/2 scoop Vega Sport vanila protein
- 1 scoop Amazing Grass Raw Reserve greens powder
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/4 cup filtered water
- topped with cacao nibs for crunch!
I snacked on some caramel coconut chips mid-morning and then some english cucumber while making my lunch bowl. I can’t get over Taz’s nose peeking out!!! He’s my everything.
I was working from home all day, so I made a plant powered glow bowl for lunch! With mixed Organic Girl super greens, steamed sweet potato and sautéed broccoli with tomatoes, plus a spoonful of my go-to tahini sauce that I make almost weekly. So yum and nourishing.
P.S. >> shop my distressed denim shorts (under $20!) and pink free people bralette/sports bra (on sale for $25!) and also the matching pink leggings that are SO comfortable I could live in them (also on major sale)!
A super simple dinner of steamed broccoli, kale tossed with my cucumber dill tzatziki sauce and greek chickpea burgers that I’m testing out.. they were a little dry so still working on it!
