Hi all! I’m popping in today to share a couple of fun tidbits! First off, I want to direct you to an interview I did with the lovely Heidi Kokborg, journalist and creator of the blog, The Sparkling Darling. I’ve gotten to know Heidi through our blogs, and it’s been great getting to know this like-minded lady! Her blog features travel adventures, words of wisdom, beauty products, book reviews, and plenty of delicious healthy recipes. When Heidi approached me with the idea of interviewing me, I was so surprised and beyond flattered! I rarely delve into my personal thoughts about plant-based diets and a vegan lifestyle here on the blog, which isn’t because I don’t want to, I’m just way too busy talking to you about food and recipes! Heidi asked me all kinds of great questions about my journey to a plant-based diet and cruelty free lifestyle. You can find the article here: Feeding Your Beauty Interview on Heidi’s fabulous site The Sparkling Darling.
I thought I’d also quickly share a fun smoothie recipe, since it’s almost the weekend and the perfect opportunity to try a new blend! This is a favorite of my daughter’s (and mine). It’s chock-full of vitamin C and other inside-out skin beautifiers like hydrating coconut water and super-powered chia seeds.
I first shared this recipe on Instagram a few months ago, and I’ve been looking through my photos and thinking, “you know I should really put some of these smoothies on the blog!” So here you go, a fabulous strawberry and citrus smoothie to kick off the weekend!
Super C Smoothie
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup of coconut water
- 2 clementines*
- 1 navel orange
- 2 cups of frozen strawberries
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
Blend everything until smooth. Makes 2 servings.
*Substitute an extra navel orange for the two clementines
