Happy Monday, lovelies! Let me begin by saying, I didn’t start Om & the City to write trendy, generic blog posts that are ‘click-worthy’. I started it to share my own perspective, personal growth and experiences in the wellness industry, with hopes that I find a community that connects to it. If I ever serve you anything less, please call me out. I share topics I believe in, but I think it’s equally important to share what I don’t believe in – and for one, that’s juice cleanses.
Hello, hello! I’ve had a few different people email me asking about what I eat as a healthy snack, so I wanted to speak on this. I’m going to be completely frank: When I’m busy or “in the zone”, I don’t always remember to eat. I sit there working, working, working, until it finally hits me that, oh sh*t, I haven’t eaten or drank anything in the past 5 hours. This is not good, folks.
Pears are so under-appreciated. I feel like we forget how delicious pears are or maybe it’s just me. I always remember to buy the apples, bananas, and oranges, but pears fall off my radar! That’s okay, though, because now I am in love all over again. I whipped together a delicious light breakfast and had to share.
Hi there, my dears! The week is almost over, so I wanted to throw in a little pick-me-up smoothie recipe. I live for my green smoothies. Somedays it can be a challenge to get in your full serving of veggies, so I try to pack as much as I can into my morning smoothies. I will admit, there are days I just fork over the $10 to Liquiteria and buy the damn thing, but I definitely shouldn’t make that a habit.
Happy Monday, Loves! I hope everyone had a smashing Valentine’s, Galentine’s, whatever weekend. I just hope it was fantastic no matter what. It was quite frigid in NYC, but we made the most of it. In fact, the S.O. and I spent the weekend holed up making arts and crafts for our new apartment, and we made chocolate covered strawberries, and the below peanut butter energy balls! It turned out so yummy we decided to document the process… and you bet these little bitties followed us to the movies to see Deadpool (hilarious dark comedy – go see it if you’re into that).
The boyfriend and I were painting the apartment all day Sunday, and we had no idea what to make for lunch. I basically only had cauliflower and spinach. Then, it dawned on me – I know how to make a healthy alfredo sauce using cauliflower! I’d been wanting to try it, and since fettuccine Alfredo is one of Andrew’s favorite meals, I wanted to lure him from the Dark Side (it’s healthier and cleaner over here).
