July is coming to an end and yet there is still so much glorious summer to be lived! Smoothies are so popular for a plethora of reasons, especially during the summertime. Click here to read an earlier post I’d written about the benefits of smoothies. Like the saying goes, You are what you eat, smoothies help keep your body in check because they, too, are light and refreshing.
Sometimes I wake up and I just want to eat a bagel – living in Queens, it’s very easy to find delicious ones. However, if I wake up and go for a run, a swim, or get myself over to the gym, a bagel afterwards is the furthest thing from my mind. A smoothie. A cold pressed juice. Fruit. Those are the things my body craves post-workout. So it’s one big cycle you see? And I’m not talking about doing this to look good in a bikini, because that’s not what’s important. It’s about feeling your best, because that’s when your natural beauty shines through and your radiance emanates outwards. So if you find some time for yourself, get out and go for a walk, a bike, a hike, a run. Because exercising helps nourish the body, the mind, and the soul ❤
