Despite the way my instagram looks, I don’t sit around all day drinking cocktails, though some times I wish I could. Physical fitness has become an important part of my day, and while I wouldn’t say that I love ‘working out’, I do like being active. As I’ve gotten older, with little kids, and especial since the start of the pandemic, keeping active has become even more relevant. But, how do you start working out regularly when you hate it? Well, I took some advice from my friend Andi. She recommends finding something you love and being consistent, and she’s an expert when it comes to fitness, and achieving huge goals. So, it makes sense that she recently launched a body-inclusive athletic wear brand called Athlethicc. For more inspiration and info about her coaching programs you can check out her insta @cartwheel_ac.
Something else that I’ve been focusing on, is it what I eat. As a family we’ve really been cutting back on the amount of meat that we consume, but personally, I needed a way to add a few more fruits and veggies to my diet. I tried a few different options, but the thing that’s really stuck is Daily Harvest smoothies. They are delicious, made with whole ingredients that you can actually identify and come portioned and frozen to your door. It really couldn’t be easier, check out how I blend mine up.
1 mango + greens from Daily Harvest
10 oz. coconut water harmless harvest
1 scoop primal kitchen Vanilla Coconut Collagen fuel
Toss everything in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass, I recommend a pint glass, and enjoy.
