It was another great weekend in Dallas! I hope you enjoyed your weekend, too. As we start a new week, let’s all have gratitude for our abilities and patience for what’s to come. We are all exactly where we need to be to receive the messages that will propel us into our next great chapter, or simply allow us to expand on our great journey.
I’m trying to eat more seasonal and local for maximum nutritional benefits, so we went to our local farmer’s market on Saturday morning and met some truly inspirational people! There were famers, artisans, entrepreneurs and beauticians that were excited to network in the community and share their wonderful products with us. Check out the photos on my Instagram here of the gorgeous loot we left with!
On Sunday, we met Joe Cross, from Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead! He was doing a book signing at Barnes & Noble for his latest, Fully Charged. He had a great energy (the juice, of course!) and was so kind to listen to everyone and take photos with anyone who wanted one. We ended up sticking around for about 3 hours and listening to his extremely inspirational story of his path to great health. I highly recommend his two documentaries, both on Netflix, and his book!

Needless to say, I intend to add more juice back into my life, starting with my next big grocery trip next weekend. This week I’m focusing on local produce and lighter smoothies in leu of packing on a few extra pounds lately (must have been that
cold weather and tacos… okay it was all the tacos…)! It happens. But I have discovered a new favorite blend in my smoothie creations, and I must share!
Queen Bey-utiful Smoothie:
2 cups Kale (or at least one cup… I’m loading up on nutrients right now)
2-3 organic strawberries (make sure they are organic, since strawberries are in the dirty dozen)
1 tablespoon local bee pollen (helps allergies and is high protein)
1 tablespoon raw, local honey (anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, high antioxidant)
1 cup almond milk (or coconut water or coconut milk)
Directions: Blend on high and add up to 1/2 cup water for a thinner consistency. It’s not too thick as is, though. I like to top mine with toasted coconut flakes for a little crunch. I also add in 1mL of MilkThistle Essential Oil to help with hormonal imbalances.
Love & Light,
