It was such a blast shooting with Free People for the Indigo Shop a few weeks back. A dreamy Malibu at sunset was a picturesque backdrop for the tonal blue/denim/neutral pieces. The amazing Amanda Julca captured the scenes beautifully, utilizing the sea spray and naturally occurring orbs of light that helped grasp the feeling of that moment, and freeze them in a photograph. I felt honored to have been included in a shoot showcasing the natural beauty of my new home here in Southern California, not to mention with a company whom I’ve loved for years. After the shoot was done, I paused a moment  to take in the sunset and be quiet for a bit. I got little emotional while I internalized that I was in a place I’ve always wanted to be, and a part of something truly creative (not to mention fully powered by a team of incredible Women). It was a day that allowed me to acknowledge and appreciate that I’m on the right path, and that there are a few angels up there steering me in the right direction.

Anti-Allergen Smoothie Bowl

I got really into eating Acai bowls in college where our favorite smoothie place near campus would blend up healthy combinations and top with hemp granola and honey. They weren’t cheap, usually coming in around $9 each, but I somehow managed to have one almost every day. I still love smoothie bowls, and there are many places in LA that you can find them, but I tend to stick to just making my own now. There are infinite possibilities and combinations, and don’t necessarily have to contain Acai. This bowl doesn’t, and is a basic strawberry/pineapple/mixed berry. I love switching up the toppings as well. Bee pollen is a go-to, and I’ve also been using dark chocolate covered cacao nibs lately too (YUM). The bee pollen is floral in flavor, high in protein, and acts as an amazing anti-allergen superfood. How you ask? Just imagine bees buzzing from flower to flower, collecting pollen that they bring back to the hive to create granules. An allergy happens when your body develops an immune response to an allergen, in turn creating antibodies. Antibodies cause cells to release histamine which is the cause of allergy symptoms. When you ingest these granules of different flowers pollen, they act as an anti-histamine, and a natural anti-allergen! NATURE IS AWESOME. The trick is to buy LOCAL be pollen, where bees have been pollenating your regional flora.

Smoothie Ingredients:

(Frozen)
-Strawberries
-Pineapple
-Mixed Berries

-Coconut Milk
-Bee Pollen
-Hemp Granola
-Honey
-Chocolate Covered Cacao Nibs

Blend 1/2 cup each of frozen fruit, and 1//2 cup coconut milk until smooth. Pour into a bowl, top with topping and serve! Extra portions can be kept in small mason jars and even frozen for easy, ready made smoothies to take on the go.
