Summer Time Favorite

This is such a simple salad, but it really hits the spot on a hot summer day. I love anything that combines my two favorite veggies: avocado and tomatoes.

First Day of Summer!

Summer might seem like an odd time to cleanse since we’re naturally more active in this season, but barbecues and trips to the beach can mean a big increase in consumption of animal proteins- and a big drop in your energy levels! So if you’ve got an upcoming vacation or wedding that you’d like to look and feel your best for, the 4-day cleanse is the best way to jump-start your progress.  Try out our Summer Morning Green Juice to kick your summer off right!
