People think that being healthy means you have to make yourself eat and drink things that are not as tasty but that is definitely far from the truth. I know I used to think that way but  have explored and found products & recipes that are far better in taste and are doing great benefits for my health. For example my favorite Buddha’s Brew Kombucha.

 Kombucha is a fermented beverage that carries bacterias and probiotics. I know you’re thinking bacteria??  Yes!!! but it is the bacteria that is good for you. (Not all bacterias are bad).

Kombucha Benefits- improves digestion, skin and hair, weight loss, increases energy, helps immune support, and detoxification. (These are few examples of many kombucha’s benefits)

I have tried most of Buddha’s Brews beverages and have loved every single one of them.

Buddha’s Brew first started selling their products at local Farmers Markets in Austin, TX and are now selling locally in Texas and outside of Texas in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

For more information about locations and on Buddha’s Brew check out their website here- http://www.buddhasbrew.com/

If you’re looking for a cool, fresh, delicious, and healthy beverage this summer definitely grab a Buddha’s Brew.

cheers to us for enjoying being healthy ♡

with so much love,

I go to the North End (Little Italy) often and I always pass by this really cute Juice shop so I decided to give it a try 🙂

I liked that they had so much variety on their menu from Juices to Smoothies to Acai Bowls

I tried the smoothie called “Woah Nellie”  which had banana, strawberry, raspberry, yogurt, coconut, apple juice and almond milk

MMMM, right?!

It was delicious, as a lover of all fruits… I love that they added so many fruits to this drink

My Daily Morning Juice Routine Recipe ♡

     IMG_0890IMG_0889-1

I like to  make vegetable juices in the morning, its definitely a staple for a great morning 🙂 it boosts up my metabolism and gives me the nutrients and energy to start out my day!

  Soooooo I thought I’d share with you guys my recipe ❤

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

2 handfuls of spinach

1 handful of kale

1/2 apple

Coconut Water (sometimes i like to substitute almond milk instead)

Sprinkle some chia seeds

If you’d like a thicker consistency you can add greek yogurt as well

(I used a vitamix but you can use any type of blender)

its soooo simple, filling, and yummy

it might taste really bitter (because I put more vegetables than fruits) but if you want a sweeter taste you can add more apples and fruits to your liking 🙂

Hope you enjoy it as much as I doooooooo 🙂

ps. I would love to try some recipes if anyone has any recommendations!

with so much love,
