Happy New Year!! It’s hard to believe it’s already 2018. Although I’m not a fan of how fast this past year went, 2017 was full of great memories, moments and accompanied by a LOT of learning experiences. Over the last few years wellness has become a growing passion for me. I’ve realized how important it is to take care of yourself so naturally my new years resolutions center around all things wellness. As I reflect, I am truly grateful for the past 12 months and even more excited to build a better foundation in the year ahead. Here are the 7 wellness resolutions I’ll be living by in 2018.
Have you ever had a green tea latte? If not, get ready for your life to change. Over the last few months I’ve been trying to lower my caffeine intake by incorporating more natural ways to stay energized. Matcha is a great alternative to coffee because it is rich in antioxidants and gives you the energy you need without crashing. Stemmed from nutrient-rich Japanese tea leaves, sources say that matcha is one of the most powerful super foods in the market today.
I’m definitely a routine girl. I like finding things that work for me and continue incorporating them into my day-to-day. As far as workouts go, it’s important to switch those up – that’s how you see major results, but when it comes to how I recover I ALWAYS turn to this Blueberry Vanilla Protein Smoothie.
I’ve been really feeling lemon lately – adding it to my water, quinoa and even vegetables.
There’s something about the contrast of taste between lemon and greens that I just crave – I drool over it every time. So being me, I naturally researched some greens that pair well with citrus and WAL-LAH! Lemon roasted asparagus.
It’s not only healthy, it takes barely any time to prepare. Win! Between work, the gym, blogging, etc., I love when I can simplify my life.
When you need chocolate in your life you make these HEALTHY no-bake Chocolate Coconut Date Balls! I’ve found this recipe to be a great dessert for get-togethers or for a simple snack when I’m really craving something sweet. This chocolate coconut date ball recipe is vegan, soy-free, gluten free, a great source of fiber and only 4 ingredients!
