Lemons & limes are arguably two of the most versatile, and accessible, superfoods!
Let’s take a look at some of their superpowers:
+ High in vitamin C (lemon > lime)
+ Good source of pectin fiber
+ Good source of folate (a B vitamin, also known as “folic acid”)
+ Reduce hunger cravings (hello, fiber!)
+ Help detoxify your body
+ Help soothe a sore throat (lemon)
So, here are a few ways I enjoy these superfoods:
I add them to…
+ Water (hot or cold)
+ Fresh juice (OBSESSED with The Plant Cafe‘s “Healthy Sunrise” & “Immune Builder” juices!)
+ Homemade lemonade
Pretty much anything, and everything😂—they’re super versatile!
How do you enjoy lemons & limes? If you’re thinking with a shot of tequila… Ah, you’re my kind of girl/guy! ; )
When I’m in a bikini (or a tight dress) I want to feel light & tight. No bloating, thank you very much!
In this series, I’m sharing eats + sips for the bikini-clad babe—the goal is to reduce bloating, satisfy hunger, and stay hydrated.

Watermelon is one the BEST things to eat when you’re bikini-clad. It’s high in water content (~ 92%) so it keeps you full and hydrated without that heavy, bloated feeling. Plus, it’s delicious, & the perfect summer fruit, don’t you think?
These Watermelon Mint Popsicles are easy to make & they honestly taste like summer on a stick—they’re sooo good!
Here’s the quick recipe…
+ 1/4 Watermelon
+ 11 Mint leaves
+ ~ 7 Drops liquid stevia
+ Blend all ingredients in blender for ~ 1 minute
+ Pour mixture into popsicle molds
+ Place in freezer for at least 4 hours
Make it at home:
Don’t you get warm fuzzies when you think of PB&J?
Think elementary school, recess, lunches by the jungle gym, opening up a packed lunch from mom, with crusts cut off (HA!)
This classic is too good to pass up just because we’re adults now!
SO—I’m super excited to share my take on the classic PB&J!
I give up the excess sugar, make a few tweaks, and invite my buddies, chia & ground flax seeds—hello, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber & magnesium! It’s a party in your mouth, without the guilt.
Here’s what you need:
+ Organic Gluten Free Brown Rice Bread (I get “Food for Life” from Trader Joe’s), toasted (I like it super crunchy!)
+ Trader Joe’s Organic Raspberry Fruit Spread
+ Trader Joe’s Organic Peanut Butter, creamy no salt (For JOYFETTI PB, mix in chia and ground flax seeds—so good!)
+ Chia Seeds
+ Ground Flax Seeds (I like Spectrum Essentials Organic Ground Flaxseeds)
I hope you enjoy it!
Ever since I discovered the health benefits of chia and ground flax seeds I sprinkle them on EVERYTHING.
Here are the 3 big benefits that stand out to me:
They’re rich in…
+ Omega-3 fatty acids (ALA)
I add them to:
+ Peanut butter (<< more on this tomorrow—can’t wait to share this one!)
+ Kombucha (<< I love GT’s raspberry kombucha with chia seeds)
+ Protein shakes
How do you get your chia/ground flax seed fix?
