Happy New Year, my lovelies! Was 2018 a whirlwind for you? Because it was for me, but I am no less thankful for all the good things that happened! I am also optimistic about 2019. However, I’m not really a resolution-maker, per se, mainly because I don’t like disappointing my January 1st-self half way through the year when it turns out I haven’t worked out regularly, eaten well, or written as many handwritten letters to loved ones as I should. But I certainly appreciate the fresh start and optimism of the year that lies ahead.

Speaking of, one way I’m going to jumpstart this coming year is by fueling my body and actually working out (wait… maybe this IS a resolution??). For the “fuel” portion of the equation, I plan on getting into the habit of adding Garden of Life’s Organic Protein to my diet, which has 20g of protein, 0g of sugar, 3 Billion CFU Probiotics, is vegan-friendly and gluten-free. Whew… did you make it through that benefits list?!?!. I know it’s lengthy, but there’s a lot of really great things about this protein powder. Did I mention that all of its ingredients are clean and traceable? #praisehands. It’s a great supplement to add to smoothes, shakes or baked goods.

You know there are a lot of great smoothie recipes out there, but I’d like to offer up to you the Pina Colada, which I plan to put on repeat at my house in 2019. Probably will add a miniature umbrella to the glass for good measure.
