As a holistic health coach and juice cleanse connoisseur, I have been keeping a dirty little secret that I am going to let you in on. I have decided to come clean in hopes that it will inspire you to trust that you can make meaningful changes in your own nutrition, regardless of the current state of your diet.

As humans, we typically do not like change… but when it comes to cold pressed juices, change is good! As we approach to close out the summer, it feels like the perfect time to talk with you about how Ritual Juice elevates your wellness by tasting differently throughout the year.
Are you looking for more natural ways to fuel your workout? Have you been relying on energy drinks and coffee to give you that early morning or later afternoon energy boost? Replace caffeine, chemicals and dyes with freshly made juice to get a nutritious, sustainable buzz.
Have you been working out religiously since spring, to make sure you look your best in your skimpy summer attire? If so, you are probably feeling great, but you still may feel you haven’t gotten all the results you were hoping for.
Sure, you are sleep deprived, overworked, and overcommitted. But those may not be the only reasons you feel tired all the time. The reason may be a simple one to correct.
Lately, for the first time in my life, I have fallen off of the workout train. There are a large number of lame excuses that I have come up with from being too busy, to too tired, to it being a day that ends in y, and the list goes on. As a wellness advocate, I feel that I am not supposed to have these slip ups, but it happened. Such is life :)
You have probably heard that many sunscreens are chemical bombs that can potentially do more harm than good. Some of the common chemicals in them are said to interfere with hormone balance, cause cancer and lead to a host of other physical challenges. Lovely :)
A bit of inspiration from Kris Carr landed in my inbox this morning. Kris is a health advocate that has been a great source of inspiration to me over the last few years. Make time to do this short exercise today. I have done it many times throughout my life and it always lifts my spirit and grounds me.
Get a piece of blank paper and complete this sentence:

Here is how mine went today,
With warmer weather, I find myself craving salads for lunch or dinner. All the produce is so gorgeous this time of year, and I don’t feel like turning on the oven and heating up the house to bake anything. The only downside is that my husband likes protein at every meal. This has created my quest for easy protein that enhances a salad. These are some of my favorite easy additions.
Summer marks the beginning of BBQ's, beach days, celebrations and happy indulgences. Bring this easy and healthy salad to your next festivity for a yummy, low cal and nutritious option.
- 4 tablespoons cold pressed olive oil
