MONDAY MEALS // SUPERFOOD, SUPER YOU

Like many of you, I have quite the crazy schedule. From teaching and working with kids all day to spending time in sales, a morning routine is key to a successful and energetic day! That’s why I like to start every day with a Philosophie Green Dream Superfood Smoothie. Superfoods are vitamin and mineral-dense substances prized for their unique nutrient profiles and ability to activate the body’s natural potential for cleansing, repairing, and rebuilding.  AKA–miracle workers!  Adding them into my smoothies are an easy way for me to reap all of their incredible benefits in an easy, delicious way.

This handy step by step list from Philosophie should help you make that perfect smoothie every time. Don’t hesitate to get creative, be adventerous, use fresh, local, in-season produce and-my personal favorite-try your best to take a few minutes to sit down, clear your mind, and enjoy your creation! You will be thankful for the energy, clarity and balance you will receive from starting your day in a healthy way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

* I use one of the three Philosophie Blends (raw, vegan, gluten-free, sprouted + fair-trade sources) but any Superfood Blend will do!

LA JUICE WEEK // PRESSED JUICERY

My last juice stop in LA was certainly not the least. Pressed Juicery is the definition of minimalism and simplicity. From their storefront to their website, this juicery has a really cool vibe with delicious pressed juices that keeps their customers coming back for more. Pressed Juicery is based on their main point that, “Our bodies require vital nutrients to function at their optimal levels. Pressed Juicery provides a convenient way to meet those requirements.” I couldn’t agree more. They’re especially known for their Signature Cleanses. You can choose a 1, 3 or 5 day ranging from $72 – $325. The three cleanses range from beginners to more experienced juicers. Cleanse 1 is the only cleanse that contains 2 almond milks, and Cleanse 2 is their most popular and balanced cleanse. Check out their juice cleanse online for more information!

LA JUICE WEEK // MOON JUICE

Like many, I am a sucker for beautiful packaging. When I walked into Moon Juice for the first time, I didn’t even need to try the juice first–I already liked the place. The aesthetic of the juicery mimics a minimalistic feel with a modern edge, which completely coincides with their packaging. I did some research on reviews of Moon Juice, and while a common [negative] theme is the expense of their juices, a more common [positive] theme is the incredibly delicious taste of their juices. The girl working behind the counter was also very knowledgable about their menu and the health benefits of each juice, snack, etc. Aside from the pleasing aesthetics of this juice bar, there was something in particular on the counter to the right that really got my attention: a bowl of glass test-tube looking liquids that I had never seen before. I took a closer look and asked the girl behind the counter what these little concoctions were all about.

According to Quintonhealth.com, Quinton plasma helps stimulate your immune system, helps fight illness, increases endurance and strength, escalates mental focus, and expedites recovery . . . plus even more health benefits [ just check out their site or ask anyone at Moon Juice ]. The site also recommends the best way to take the product is as follows:

> On an empty stomach at least 10 minutes before eating

> Swill the Quinton round your mouth for 30 secs to help with dental issues and because there is good absorption through the gums and mouth

> Don’t try taking more than 2 ampoules at one time!

FYI: The girl behind the counter told me that people use the Hypertonic (yellow tube) for hangovers . . . That’s one way to boost your energy!

LA JUICE WEEK // KREATION KAFE

Kreation Kafe has quite the variety in their juice options. I absolutely love how the juices label all of their ingredients and benefits on the front of the bottle. Personally, I think it’s a super effective marketing tactic to show right away the benefits of their juices because they have nothing to hide! Their juices are made from Santa Monica Farmer’s Market 100% organic fruits and veggies, which is awesome. The environment of Kreation Kafe feels “earthy” and natural because of their wooden exterior and interior.

LA JUICE WEEK // JUICEBOX TRUCK

Juice–on the go. Literally, the most amazing juice came out of this green truck parked on Abbot Kinney with seriously the nicest people working inside. They were incredibly helpful, knowledgable, and recommended the best juices. This is their only truck as of right now, but they are in a competition to win money for another truck to park around the city (fingers crossed)! I expereinced hands down the most refreshing drink I have ever had–their summer special called Basilbox (ingredients below). They informed me that the drink was also good for the skin, and I’m all for healthy skin regiments. I highly recommend trying this drink before summer is over!
