No one can stop your healthy self when you are full of energy and feel (and look) amazing.

    Spice up your life with this yummy vanilla latte made with three spices that do wonders to our health. Tumeric is one of the most potent anti-disease herbs in the world with anti-inflammatory benefits. Gingerol in ginger may kill cancer cells more effectively than chemo and cinnamon's antioxidants have been associated with lower blood sugar and cholesterol, improvements in nausea and PMS symptoms, and decreased inflammation. That's one powerful beverage! 

    Here is the recipe by The First Mess:

    10-12 oz light coconut or unsweetened almond milk
    1 1/2-2 tsp ground turmeric
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    fat pinch of vanilla powder
    1 1/2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil
    maple syrup/brown rice syrup to taste

    Combine all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the liquid to a strong simmer, whisking a couple times. Once it’s quite warm, carefully pour the liquid into a blender and slowly blend the mixture until thoroughly combined and frothy. Pour the drink into a cup and shake a bit of cinnamon on top if you like.

    For a healthy boost of energy, the superfood matcha has been tied to protection against heart disease, cancer, blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction and anti-aging. We're loving this super easy recipe by Roots Reboot!

    1 tsp. Matcha
    1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
    1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp pure maple syrup or honey
    1/3 cup cashews + 1 cup water, 1 cup cashew milk or 1 cup coconut milk

    Put cashews and water into a high speed blender and blend until throughly mixed, about 1-2 minutes. Put all remaining ingredients into the blender. Blend until frothy. Reboot + Enjoy!


    superfood latte
    Another awesome superfood latte by The First Mess! This one includes maca, which is an ancient Incan superfood packed with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients. It is tied to many health benefits such as uplifting mood and energy levels, mood balance, sexual health, women's health and healthy skin. 'Nuff said! Here's the recipe by The First Mess: 

    notes: There’s so many options for add-ins with this. I chose a teaspoon of raw cacao powder and a star anise pod, but you could reach for fresh ginger juice, turmeric, cayenne, cardamom, vanilla etc etc.

    10 ounces milk of your choice, unsweetened is preferable (I did a mix of coconut and almond)
    2 tsp maca powder
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon + extra for dusting if you like
    1 tbsp maple syrup
    1 tsp raw cacao powder
    1-2 star anise pods (so, so optional)

    I start this drink by blending everything in an upright blender (except the star anise if you’re using it) to get all the powdery bits incorporated. Then I gently heat in a small saucepan over medium heat (with the star anise) until it’s really simmering. You could easily skip the blending step and just whisk the mixture lightly while it’s heating. Drink it warm with a dusting of cinnamon.

    1. The Three Rules to Follow to Reduce Holiday Stress 🎁🌲

      Reduce Holiday Stress

      Source: @hairandstyles

      Hey loves! It’s that time of year again! The holidays are amongst us and what a magical time of year it is, right? Well at least it should be, but they tend to be quite chaotic and stressful.

      December is filled with holiday parties, gift shopping and cooking and it takes a lot of hard work and patience to make it through the holidays in one piece. But, not to fear! We have three rules you must follow to reduce that holiday stress along with a few tips to help. 

      Rule #1
      ADJUT YOUR EXPECTATIONS - Make Things Simple and Easy

      Don’t try to make everything Pinterest worthy. Make things simple, fast and easy. Instead of making 3-D snowman cookies, make some good ol’ chocolate chip cookies. Wear an outfit you already have, don’t feel like you need to buy a whole new wardrobe. After all, you want the good times spent with family and friends the memorable thing, not your cookies and outfits.


      Rule #2
      PRIORITIZE - You Can’t Do Everything

      So much to do, so little time. Don’t ware yourself out and try to go to every holiday party and/or host a party every weekend. Make priorities as to where you feel is the most important place to be. It is okay to say NO. You can always make plans after the holidays to see friends and family you are unable to see.

      Rule #3
      GRATITUDE IS EVERYTHING – Remember What the Holidays Are Really About

      Don’t make the holidays about buying the best presents, wearing the cutest outfit or making the best desert. The holidays are about being grateful and reminding us how truly lucky we are to have such amazing family and friends.

      Here are some tips and ideas to make it through the holiday madness:


      Secret Santa
      Do you have a big family and/or a big group of friends? Consider doing a Secret Santa. That will not only reduce your stress but you’ll be doing your friends and family a favor.

      Thoughtful, Clutter-free Gifts We all know someone that is really hard to shop for or “has everything they want already’. Consider getting them a gift card to something they love to do. If they love going to yoga, buy them a pass to a class or a series of classes. Everyone loves a massage, facials or mani/pedi’s…a gift card for a service makes a lovely gift also.

      Pass on a Gift, Go on a Date
      Don’t have time to shop? Planning to meet with a friend or family member sometime during or after the holidays for some coffee or a nice dinner can be a great gift and a way to spend quality time together that is sometimes hard to make time for.

      Sonita was 10 years old when her parents first tried to sell her into marriage. Luckily, this arranged marriage fell through, but when she was 16, her mother once again told her she had to marry a man she did not know. Sonita’s brother needed $7,000 for a dowry, and the family would make $9,000 selling her. “I realized against my brother, I have no value. And they couldn’t understand me,” recalls Sonita.  

      Sonita’s family was from Afghanistan who fled to Iran because of the war. The arranged marriage would have her return to Afghanistan where her future husband lives. But Sonita refused to go and began protesting child marriages in a unique and completely awesome way, rapping! Every year, 15% of Afghan girls are subject to child marriage and Sonita decided to voice her advocacy by recording her music, which is also illegal for a woman to do without government permission in Iran.

      After being offered a full scholarship to study music at Wasatch Academy in Utah, Sonita continues to record her rap music and works as an activist against child marriage from her school in the US.

      Jazz was only five years old when she came out as transgender and at the age of seven, she began transitioning in front of the public eye. Jazz has since been dedicated to helping other trans teenagers ”navigate a hostile world during their difficult and confusing adolescences.”

      Recently, she wrote an inspirational letter to her 5-year-old self:

      Dear 5-Year-Old Jazz,

      I know that so many people attempt to cloud the purity of your happiness with their tenacious hatred. I know that your eyes glisten with hope, yet they will still be denied by the intolerance of society. I know that your heart beats with the gratifying rhythm of freedom yet so many others prefer the trepidatious sound of fear or the unrelenting drum of cruelty. However, let that hope in your eyes and the love in your heart continuously be confident that one day everyone will be able to hear that alluring melody of freedom. Continue to smile big and move forward in the direction of progress, for you will see change be brought upon this world—a change that you will help create.

      Your 16-Year-Old Self

      Jazz provides support and advice to trans teens on her YouTube Channel, has a published memoir, Being Jazz: My Life As A (Transgender) Teen and is also the first trans spokesperson for Clean & Clear!

Amanda founded a nonprofit, One Pen One Page, when she was 16 years old, to provide creative writing opportunities for underserved youth across the country.  

      "Poetry exists as a unique tool that can interrogate and communicate issues of inequality and injustice in a manner that is inherently rebellious," Gorman said. "Poetry as an art form in itself cuts against the grain ... Poetry, and art in general, is humankind's creative mechanism for social change. There's a reason tyrants fear the poet."

      Amanda has the most amazing energy and delivers her poems with passion. Get ready to get the chills!

    4. The Secret to Having a Perfect Day, Everyday! 🌟

      Imagine tomorrow is the perfect day. You wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on whatever comes your way. You get most of your to-do list done and even fulfill a goal you’ve been aiming to achieve. You have time to work out, run an errand, eat healthy and meet with a friend for tea or even a cocktail. IMAGINE THAT! If every day went like this, where would you be a year from now? Totally rocking your goals and achieving more than you thought possible! So, here is the secret to having the “best day ever” everyday…

      Find a morning and evening routine that works for YOU. It’s as simple as that! Not everyone is an early bird, and you don’t have to get your 5am work out in to be successful. Find the idle routine that works for you and be realistic. Most importantly, don’t be so hard on yourself if there’s a day where things don’t go exactly as planned, shit happens! Tomorrow is another day. Here are a few suggestions on what your morning and evening routines can consist of.

      Morning and evening routines

      Morning Routine


      We’ve all heard this before and it is truly a simple way to get your day started off right! There is something about coming home to a tidy - it’s relaxing and encourages you to keep the rest of your room clean. “If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.

      WORK OUT

      If you're an early bird, get your work out in bright and early! Scratch that off your list early and take on the rest of your day.


      If you're not an early bird, take at least 10 minutes of your morning to stretch and get some blood flowing. It’s a nice relaxing and refreshing way to start your day. There are some great morning yoga videos you can watch on YouTube. Check out Yoga By Candace and Sarah Beth Yoga for short yoga routines perfect for your morning routines.


      If you've never mediated, it is such a great practice to adopt in your daily routines. Meditation reduces stress, improves concentration, increases self-awareness, slows aging and benefits cardiovascular and immune health. Five to ten minutes is all you need daily. An amazing app for meditation is HeadSpace!


      Take some time for social media and get a little head start by replying to some emails before work.


      While you’re getting ready, listen to some inspiration and positivity. Check out a list of some self-improvement podcasts HERE. Also, for some inspiration on making your morning and evening routines a habit, listen to “ The Power of Habit”!


      Make sure to get your breakfast in! Starting your day off with a healthy breakfast and a much need cup of coffee or tea is so important. It’s the fuel you need to start your day off right! If you have limited time in your morning to make breakfast, make some time in your evening routine to prep your breakfast. Try simple and healthy recipes such as this yummy Strawberry Chia Overnight Oats

      Evening Routine


      We often don’t realize all the little accomplishments we achieve throughout the day and it’s so good to acknowledge them! This helps you overcome the discouragement that comes with setbacks and really helps all the good things you have done shine through the bad stuff!


      You can also wind down your day with meditation, if you don’t have time in the morning or you prefer to end your day with meditation.


      If you got your workout on in the morning, yoga is a good day to wind down.


      For those that are not early birds or just like to work out in the evenings, working out can really get you a good night's sleep.


      If you're not happy with a particular part of your life or want to make some life changes, take 15 minutes to find ways to improve these areas. Brainstorm ideas and list some things that you would like to change and would ultimately make you happy.


       Take time in the evening to prep for the next day. Prep your breakfast and lunch, pick out your outfit, and prep your coffee maker.


      Set a boundary to your evening. Find a time where you will completely shut down, stop working and turn off all electronics. Try to give yourself at least an hour before bed. 


      Drink some water before bed to not only keep you hydrated, but to get you out of bed in the morning! Also, keep a glass of water next to your bed to drink first thing in the morning. Drinking water first thing in the morning helps renew cells, flushes and balances toxins from your body and purifies your colon!
