Haute Healthy x Chobani Simply 100.

Chobani 100 All Natural x haute healthy

Meet my boyfriend’s dog Blu – he was given six months to live and three years later is thriving on an all natural diet. It makes you wonder what eating all natural can do for us? I was lucky enough to receive some #sponsored Chobani Simply 100 yogurt, which is the first and only 100-calorie yogurt made with only natural ingredients. No artificial sweeteners or flavors. When I thought about all natural, Blu came to mind because I have watched him beat cancer by eating an all natural diet and thought he would make the perfect model for the product. Doesn’t Blu look cute with the Chobani blueberry flavor?

What I Ate.

Lately things have been so hectic that I have been eating the same things pretty much every day. Fruit and more fruit, tons of protein muffins and salads. I get stuck on foods and repeat them until I am sick of them and nobody wants to see a million pictures of the same protein muffins every morning, ha. So, nothing very exciting but I still wanted to share with you guys what I ate over the past week or so to help give ideas on clean eating. I found this great new farm to table restaurant in Boca that is amazing – Farmer’s Table Boca - they offer clean ingredients from local farms without all the excess crap you find in most restaurants. The outside seating area is adjacent to a hotel pool and makes for a very tropical and relaxing feel, perfect for work lunches to give you a nice break from the day. I plan on going back soon so I will report back with more yummy food.

banana bowl haute + healthy

Banana Bowl, inspired by Loni Jane. Just blend a ton of bananas with almond milk, top with more banana, coconut flakes & cinnamon.

I hope you enjoy seeing all the healthy food I have been eating lately and that it inspires you to keep up your clean eating. I know sometimes it can be hard, especially around holidays, but that is why it becomes a lifestyle not a diet, which means you can still enjoy the bad stuff in moderation because you are eating so healthy for the most part. Have a great week!

Haute Healthy x Sambazon Acai Smoothie Packs.

If you follow me on instagram you know of my serious acai obsession. I have it at least a few times a week either at home or my local juice bar Raw Juce which has the BEST acai bowls EVER. Ok, maybe not EVER but they are pretty damn good. So anyway, when my obsession began I first found the Sambazon acai powder on Vitacost (which really does last 30 servings btw); then I discovered the Sambazon acai smoothie packs at my local Whole Foods. While I would say they both have a similar flavor I like to use the smoothie packs more because they are individually separated and cold already, while the powder I have to mix overnight and have it cold for my morning breakfast. I have the acai smoothie/bowl about mastered and my preferred method of blending includes 1 banana, some almond milk and fresh berries for a more tart taste. There’s a reason the acai bowls that are made for you cost $10 a pop – because they are topped with tons of great healthy stuff that can be expensive. I order these toppings through Vitacost or get them at my local TJ Maxx or Marshalls – they always have great prices on tons of health foods! My favorite acai add ons are: chia seeds, hemp seeds, granola, coconut flakes and honey on top. How do you take your acai? x, Beth

The Happiness Project.

For the past few months I have been carrying a very heavy weight around with me that has been dimming my usual happy spirit. A close family member of mine struggles with bipolar depression and this illness has become my main worry, the theme of my prayers and essentially my enemy. My goal in life is to help this person triumph over this illness and achieve happiness, but in trying to help so hard I have put a lot of strain on my own happiness in the process. Sometimes I even feel guilty for how happy I feel because they cannot feel the same way. This issue has been effecting my family for a long time and I have learned over the years that this is not something that can easily be fixed, which is heartbreaking as I am a fixer and want to make everything a fairytale. Accepting that everything can’t be perfect is like accepting defeat at this point, which breaks my heart, but I always hold out hope and have faith that this person can come back from depression and be better than ever before.

we carry these things inside us

I truly believe that by leading a healthy lifestyle you can gain control of your happiness. I don’t just mean working out and eating clean to be healthy, I mean keeping a healthy mind and spirit as well which requires activley practicing mental exercises. I am not saying that being healthy will cure depression, but I am saying it can make it less painful to live with. In my effort to help this person on their path to happiness and wellness I realized that I need to be more mindful of my own state of mind as well, so I have launched The Happiness Project as a personal project for myself to ensure I am not drowned out at sea carrying this weight. If you are also carrying a weight through life I hope you too can benefit from this personal project and/or share it with someone you know who is struggling with their happiness. Read more on The Happiness Project after the jump…

Haute Healthy x Hilary’s Eat Well Burgers.

Good morning, hope you survived Monday! Today we are talking about these amazing new veggie burgers I am crushing on. I have tried a lot of the veggie burgers in the frozen section and frankly, many of them just don’t do it for me. So when I tried Hilary’s Eat Well burgers I was prepared to not like them. Except I LOVED them and now am obsessed with them because they taste  a lot like my beloved Qrunch burgers I used to be obsessed with but can never find in the store. I think it is the mix of quinoa and millet in these burgers that I love so much. These are also boyfriend approved. Another major reason to love Hilary’s Eat Well products are because they are vegan, use all organic products and all natural ingredients that can actually be pronounced. Not to mention they only take about 3 minutes to cook on the stove top and you are done. Quick, easy and healthy – what else can we ask for? Here is how I prepare my Hilary’s Eat Well Burgers:

March Moments.

March was a month full of clean eating, bootcamp and clean eating recipes galore. I have been having so much fun coming up with quick and easy clean eating/raw recipes lately that it has become my part time job. Mainly I just chop up things or mix stuff, I wouldn’t really call it cooking, but it is more than I ever did in a kitchen before so I have come a long way. I have been thinking of creating some videos showing you how to create my favorite go-to recipes…let me know what you think about this and the recipes you would like to see in the comments below. Here are some snapshots of my haute + healthy life in March and what I have been creating, hope you all had a great weekend! xx, Beth
