Things I’m Loving Right Now

CorePower Yoga – Del Mar. I love their chic, yellow and gray decor, friendly staff and instructors, and that it’s a nice teeny tiny walk from my work. Also, you work out HARD and sweat your brains out! Absolutely in love with this place – check it out and get your OM on! 

Spiritual Gangster and Ellie.com for work out gear. I just love both of these lines. Spiritual Gangster is basically lounge wear (or to-and-from yoga wear as well). I love their unique take on yoga culture.  Ellie.com is ultimate fitness gear.  For $50 a month you get 2 pieces of high-quality work out clothes delivered to your door. [20% off to GraceistheNewGlam.com readers!] – Their summer line looks SICK – check it out! 

Holy Detox Tea by Zen’s Tea House. This is my mad find at the Long Beach Farmer’s Market this weekend. I’m slowly breaking out of coffee in the morning – so this is a crazy-rad replacement.  It’s fruity with some substance. Great for your skin, your gut, and detoxing! 

Rise Bars. This is one of my go-to bars. I have them in my purse, my car, my gym bag. They go with me wherever. They are local to Orange County and contain great ingredients to keep me healthy. They’re found at Whole Foods Markets. (added bonus:  they’re gluten free)

Suja Juice’s Lemon Love. Holy spicy, Batman! This drink is my sober cocktail.  Besides stimulating your digestive enzymes, it is delicious. It’s lemon water with a kick. Think, an amazing tasting master cleanse. I can’t drink enough of this stuff. Be careful, though, this addiction could cost you.

  1. Jen–One thing you should try and I know it will wind up on you list of things you love—it’s the NUTRI-BULLET!!!! (Not the Magic Bullet, the Nutri-Bullet is much stronger.) And it’s so much cheaper and easier to clean than the $500 Vitamix! The NB is $99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond and with the 20% off coupon comes to $80. So worth it! It’s easier and takes up less counter space than a blender or juicer and it’s a breeze to clean up–a quick rinse of blade and cup does the trick . PLUS, since the NB pulverizes everything, you are getting a huge amount of filling fiber and not just juice. My favorite green drink contains kale, frozen blueberries, 1/2 apple, 1/2 cup pineapple juice/water mixed. I sprinkle in a TBS of ground flax seed. Yes, at first the stuff is reminiscent of lawn clippings, (and if you don’t put together the right combo of ingredients it could taste like lawn clippings too!) but it does taste like a creamy dessert! You can experiment with various fruits and veggies and combos to find a concoction that delights your own taste buds. Add ginger or chia seeds or almonds. You coulda had a V-8 if you mix tomtoes, cucumber, celery, onion and garlic. Research and experiment and you’ll develop some winning recipes. I love love love my NB. My breakfast smoothie of kale or spinach is yummy and filling! So full I don’t get hungry until lunch time. And I generally take care of my daily veggie requirement first thing and boy does it give me energy! I feel so good for putting such nutritious things in my body. Feels like my bod is happy about it too! Maybe try it???
