My Favorite Things: May

Here are a few of the things I’m digging in the world of health, fitness and nutrition right now!

 

Favorite Eat and Drink: 

Let's start with an Eat and a Drink for your Memorial Day BBQ!

Favorite Eat:  Herby Picnic Potato Salad, with Kale, Apples and Chickpeas

Get the Memorial Day party started with this hearty herb potato salad by Green Kitchen Stories. This is a great vegan side dish to take to any BBQ this summer. There's even a generous dose of protein, thanks to the addition of chickpeas. Love! (Also loving Green Kitchen Stories for beautiful vegan recipes!)

Favorite Drink:  Watermelon Margaritas

Speaking of parties, I love this 3 ingredient watermelon margarita!  These are the perfect margaritas for summertime. No sugar added!  Whip up a batch of naturally sweet and refreshing watermelon juice for impromptu happy hours all summer!  Get the simple but brilliant recipe at Minimalist Baker.

 

Favorite Read

 The Universe Has Got Your Back

I have been following the lovely Gabby Bernstein for a while now, and I love her work.  This woman is a force to be reckoned with.  I will let the title of the book speak for itself.  If you are like me, and are interested in meditation, mindfulness and living with more love and less fear........Gabby nails it for you in this book.  My copy is dog-eared and full of notes!

 

Favorite Product

Beautycounter Sugar Body Scrub

This product is a MUST HAVE for smooth, silky summer skin.  An indulgent mix of brown sugar and top-tier oils—primrose, apricot kernel, sunflower—feels and smells amazing, plus it removes dead skin cells gently and effectively.  The result is perfect glowing skin for wearing shorts, tank tops and summer dresses.  This is a product and brand that I love and sell on my website.  You can shop right here!  And get some Safe Sunscreen too, while you are at it.  To celebrate Memorial Day, you will get a free gift with $150 purchase through Monday.

 

Favorite Workout Wear

The Enlite Bra, Lululemon

I am a long time lover of Lululemon workout clothes, but I think I have discovered the best workout bra ever made!  When my beloved chef, Katie Baum told me about this bra, she could not have been more enthusiastic!  Here is a quote:  "THIS BRA CHANGED MY LIFE!" 

This bra is supportive and comfortable and looks beautiful!  (no more unflattering uni-boob!)  I have two warnings:  1.  Make sure you try it on....The bra sizing was a little different than what I usually buy.  2.  Watch out for sticker shock.......$98.  But totally worth it if you have been searching your whole life for the right sports bra.
