Dragon Fruit- Superfood Spotlight
IMG_4172.JPG

With it’s bold bright pink color and being a mix of flavor between a kiwi and pear what’s not to love about a dragon Fruit smoothie bowl?! Im always looking for ways to brighten up my day’s. Working long hours, normally a 16 hour day and training both my clients and self food is my fuel! Packed with antioxidants , fibre and tons of vitamins Dragon Fruit is similar to Acai. You can always add protein to the mix. I like adding isolated whey. It’s refined and has more of the fats and lactose carbs removed and has a higher protein percentage which is absorbed more quickly!

Here’s what you”ll need;

  1. 1 frozen pack of Pitaya Plus organic dragon fruit

  2. 1/2 frozen banana

  3. 1 cup almond milk (add more for desired consistency) Watching those calories? Substitute with water.

  4. Ice

  5. 1 scoop isolated whey protein powder

Now blend everything together!

Here’s the fun part, TOPPINGS!!

  • Organic hemp seeds

  • Organic blackberries

  • Organic gogi berries

  • Organic almond butter

How are you going to fuel your day’s?

Premium gym memberships are they worth it?

   Hey there! I wanted to talk to you about "premium gym memberships" and are they really worth that extra expense. I keep hearing allot of different feedback from friends. Some feel you can get the same workout from gym's like LA Fitness 24 hours etc instead of spending that extra bit at gym's like Equinox. Here's what I think. You need to do what makes YOU feel great. And If that means spending extra money on a premium gym membership then do it! Whatever gets you excited and motivated to workout! We all spend money daily on silly things like coffee, eating and drinking out, among many other things. Fitness and health is so important for your mind, body and soul. Of course it's really important to have a balance in life, and you know best what's for your budget. I believe your relationship with everything first starts with you. Make your health first priority, the rest will follow. I recently switched gyms and now train at Equinox. The facility  offers a wide range of classes and amenities. It's clean and  cosmetically appealing. There's also lots of friendly staff ready to help you out. And who doesn't like being greated by there first name ;) 

Have a great day and make your well-being priority!
