Açaí bowls are my summer obsession. They are so easy to make, light + yummy but leave me feeing full. I absolutely love the infinite topping combinations & the ability to pack so many nutrients into one meal. If you have not already… give them a shot! P.S. Rico’s food truck in Charlotte is the spot.

I’ve been loving these protein filled snacks… This one has 25 grams! Vanilla Greek yogurt, Wild Friends Honey + Pretzel peanut butter and Vega Mocha Protein which makes it so fluffy! Topped with fresh fruit, granola, almonds + cacao nibs.

Dessert or protein shake? I never thought that I’d say both! Vega mocha protein + vanilla almond milk, topped with ProBar Cookie Dough Base bar.

In an effort to mix up some of my favorite flavors… I finally found a winner! Lets call it Creamy Tomato-Avocado Sauce™. I promise it’s better than it sounds. Fresh basil, garlic + spices add a hint of flavor. Greek yogurt makes the sauce thick + creamy! If you’re brave, give it a shot & let me know what you think!

Do you have your Instagram name on a tank top!? Because I do and I love it! As you may or may not know, I have a Instagram specific to my fitness journey, where I join like-minded women sharing workouts, food + inspiration. It is a fantastic tool for support & accountability. While it may seem strange at first, it is an amazing community filled with positivity & motivation. In a world filled with so much negativity, where so many people are trying to tear us down, the Instagram community does just the opposite. To my surprise, it has opened a world of new & diverse “friends”, some have even become real life friends. One of which, gave me this shirt which I love! How cool is it to have girlfriends that are there for support, motivation, advice & friendship! The thing that I love most is that I’ve found a group of friends that love living a healthy lifestyle just as much as I do & there’s nothing more exciting than working out beside your best friends. If you’re ever struggling with accountability or motivation, check out your local Instagram community as there are many meet ups in or near big cities, where girls gather to workout together! (Or just meet up for lunch!)
