Pina Colada Smoothie

Ingredients: 1/2 banana 1 cup pineapple 1 cup almond milk Handful of spinach (also okay to skip if you want to make this an actual pina colada – way better than the mix!) Quick note: I usually eyeball the liquid. I prefer to start small and add in more to get the consistency I like….

One question I’m asked ALL the time

There’s a question I’m asked almost as often as I’m asked “Is that your natural hair color?” (The red is real, the blond highlights are fake – just in case you’re also curious about this). It’s an important question (not about my hair of course, the one I’m about to share with you) because the answer is what…

Summer Salad

Feel free to mix it up and use other berries, like blueberries or raspberries. You can also use feta or another crumbly cheese if…
