Hi there, friend!

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I talk health, fitness and lifestyle—plus any adventures that pop up along the way. Hope you have a nice stay!

8 smoothie bowls to feed your [clean food] addiction.

8 smoothie bowls to feed your [clean food] addiction.

Give me all the fruits and veggies blended up in a pretty bowl with delicious toppings, and I'm a happy woman. It's this obsession with how these clean smoothies make me feel that finally prompted me to purchase several brightly colored bowls. Now, it's just as fun to eat my fruits and veggies as it is to enjoy the amazing health benefits that follow.

Jump on the smoothie bowl train or mix things up with these fun combinations.
