Alright, just dropping by to say I’m world famous! Well, ahem, I’m Miss June in a charitable calendar project. Please visit Smoothie Girl Eats Too to get yours and read more about the project. Any profits of sales from the calendar will be donated to USC Norris Cancer Hospital. Why haven’t you bought your copy yet?
Give yourself a Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa present of strong women who support you on your road to health. Post it on your fridge to get you lean, strong (and realistic – we’re totally real women) through the holidays. Use us as your 12 Days of Christmas Gals to support you through endless office holiday parties, buffet nightmares and family gatherings more stressful than being trapped on a cruise eating only spam.
Why do I look so stern and focused? I take my protein shakes very seriously.

As for little old me, after months of struggling and grieving over several personal issues that rocked my world (in a bad way…), I’m enormously grateful that I’ve found my way home to centered, balanced and staring the holidays down in the face, with a smile actually. I’ve actually recently blown the dust off my Vita-Mix and have welcomed her back into my life (“I’m so sorry darling, I’ll never leave you again. Thank you for that low glycemic pumpkin protein custard that I adapted from Elana’s Pantry).
Even though I now teach yoga and spinning, I exercise less overall. I eat less protein overall, although it still serves me well. Although I felt it my duty to test it out over the past few months (eating chocolate chips while standing in the pantry anyone?), it remains true, any considerable amount of starchy carbs serves to enslave me into carbohydrate addiction. Long story short, I’m real. And that also means on occasion, I’m real messed up. Just like all of us.
So heading into Thanksgiving, let’s be grateful for our health, our bodies (whatever they look like), and our breath (you don’t miss it until it’s gone).
Happy Thanksgiving, Namaste, and You Totally Rock.
