As you know, I’m a big wellness gal. Even more so, I’m a fan of products that cross over from the wellness space & into beauty because I strongly believe that the two are so deeply connected. When you nourish your body from the inside out, you feel good AND look good. A few years ago, I had the “aha” moment of realizing that when you stop focusing on the way you look and focus on the way you FEEL, the rest kind of falls into place. Does that make sense? This has quickly become one of my philosophies that I like to live by.
Today’s post is all about what’s in my bag when I’m traveling or on-the-go. When traveling, I have a handful of items that I always need to have with me. Keeping these items in my tote, carry-on, or beach bag keep me feeling healthy and balanced! I think it’s really important to prioritize health (and whatever makes you feel good) when traveling. I prefer to feel balanced and bring pieces of my home on trips with me.
What’s one thing you can do on a daily basis that will pack some extra nutrition & goodness into your diet? Add in a green smoothie! Honestly, adding in a daily green smoothie is one of the easiest ways to ensure you’re benefitting your nutritional needs without spending so much time. Starting the day with a big green smoothie not only packs a nutritional punch, but also makes me feel like I’m starting the day right! I’ve mentioned before that I usually find it necessary to have a smoothie on the side of my breakfast because most days I’m pretty darn hungry in the morning, especially after a workout. SO, don’t feel like you can only have a smoothie if your body is telling you it also wants solid food! I always try to point this out because those hunger cues are super important to listen to. Anyway, today I’m giving my go-to green smoothie recipe! While some ingredients in this smoothie have changed throughout the years, the base has pretty much stayed the same. What can I say, when I find something that works I become a creature of habit!
It’s no secret that I’m fan of collagen. If you’ve been reading Love Inside & Out for a while now, you know that my love for collagen runs DEEP! Collagen is something I’ve consistently used for years now and is one of those wellness “trends” that’s absolutely here to stay.
