Green overnight oats


You’re probably thinking this is another overnight oats recipe, but don’t judge too soon. It’s so nutritious that your body will thank you. I know having greens in the morning may make some of you turn green, but after you try this I promise you that you will want more greens for breakfast. Enjoy!

1/2 cup oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup spinach or kale
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 ripe banana
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries

Blend milk, chia, banana, spinach and berries for 1 minute. Add oats into a mason jar or bowl with lid, then pour blended mixture on top of oats. Refrigerate overnight.

Lizzy Jays Juice


As some of you may know, I love to try different cleanses and juices. I love to make my own as well. This time I got to try Lizzy Jays juice. I was super excited to see what blends they had. I have to say these juices are super refreshing and the smoothie for night time was the perfect way to end the day. Like I have mentioned before, cleanses are a great way to eliminate toxins from your body. I’m no health expert but I know that for me I feel energized and healthy.  Cleanses are mind over matter. I have never done something longer them 3 days. I think 3 days is perfect to jump start getting back to eating healthy. 


This is a little note from Founder, Casey Sabol

“As a personal trainer, coach and instructor for 20 years, it has been my goal to help people find balance; become less toxic, more energized and in control of their bodies, their weight and their lives.

Pressed Juicery Cleanse


Cleanses are a great way to detox your body, giving you a fresh start.  I try to do 2 cleanses a year, but I only do a 3 day cleanse just to give me that motivation to get back on track with clean eating.  I was excited to be able to review Pressed Juicery.
Their mission at Pressed Juicery is simple: make high nutrition a realistic option for all people. They do this by focusing on what others often forget: Make it taste great. Make it simple. Make it affordable. Make it for everyone. As they expand, food safety is their number one priority. As an industry leader, they have researched the latest technologies available that best keep their products safe without compromising great taste. In a field crowded with opinions and unqualified conjecture, they feel strongly about having actual science to support their decisions.

I love how they have different juice cleanse packages.  Cleanse 2 was what I went with and I have to say it didn’t disappoint. People are always scared to try a cleanse out because they think they will starve. Not true!  If I feel like I need to eat something while I’m on the cleanse I eat almonds or celery maybe even an apple. I have to say the second day of my cleanse I was actually full. I actually had to force myself to drink lol.
The one thing I loved about this cleanse is that it contained  Chlorophyll and Aloe Vera waters to supplement the cleanse each day. Great to aid digestion and raise alkaline levels!
If you are thinking of trying a cleanse I recommend this cleanse and company. Below you will find all the information on the juices I tried.


apple, celery, cucumber, kale, lemon, parsley, romaine, spinach


Leafy greens. Refreshing citrus. A touch of sweet apple. Greens 2 is a staple when you want all the goodness of a greens juice, but are still easing into the pressed juice habit.


Ingredients: (1 of my favorites)

apple, lemon, mint, pineapple


This enzyme rich juice is filled with phytonutrients and bromelin which helps to reduce inflammation. Drink it before a meal to get digestive juice



apple, celery, cucumber, ginger, kale, lemon, parsley, romaine, spinach


Craving some zip in your green juice? Enjoy the kick of ginger in this delicious blend of leafy greens and sweet apple.



apple, beet, ginger, lemon


Beets help your body to release stomach acid which aids digestion! Drink this juice when you want a snack that’s both pretty and nutritious!


Ingredients (another delicious combination)

aloe vera, coconut water, cucumber, lemon, pineapple


This juice is ultra hydrating via cucumber and coconut water and contains three of the most powerful natural digestive aids – pineapple, lemon, and aloe vera. A great juice when you want hydration and a digestion boost!


Ingredients: ( my absolute favorite)

almond, dates, sea salt, vanilla bean


Raw almonds and vanilla provide protein, healthy fats, minerals and B-complex vitamins. Our customers swear that it’s ice cream in a bottle.

Pangaea Earth Food Juices


Today I wanted to share with you something new I am trying.  I have mentioned before that I don’t write posts on things I don’t have respect or passion for.  I had a friend that tried the Pangaea juice cleanse and he was loving it.  He looked amazing and felt great.   I gave it about 2 weeks until I reached out to Erika from Pangaea.  When I finally got to talk to her I felt like I knew her on a personal level.  She is so great with trying to find your goals and why you’re doing this cleanse.  I am doing a 3 day cleanse, of which I am on my second day and I feel great.  I wasn’t trying to lose a massive amount of weight.  I just wanted to feel more energy, lighter and if I did loose 5lbs I would feel great about that.

The juices are amazing.  It’s like I have someone in my kitchen right now pressing them for me.  These are super fresh and delicious juices.  I was always reading about juice cleanses, and kind of scared to try it.  I thought I would be hungry or feel bad.  In fact it is quite the contrary.  I feel amazing and feel full enough that by the end of the day on my last juice I am too full to even finish it (so I save the little left for when I get a craving.)  The program I am on is based on 5 juices per day; all with different amazing flavors. The great thing with Pangaea is that you can have raw veggies and raw nuts if you feel like you need to munch on something.  I drink lots of water and have been drinking dandelion root tea.  I haven’t had coffee in 3 days, but have substituted some green tea here and there.  Below are the juices I have been having.
