My new obsession: Greens First Wellness Shakes. I am not normally a big advocate of powder, I tend to like fresh veggies, fruits, etc., but this product has completely changed my mornings. My super healthy friend & Lululemon ambassador, Kim Kelly [ find her here ], introduced me to Greens First & I immediately fell in love. Each morning I add one scoop of the green powder plus one scoop of the vanilla powder, in a shaker cup with cold water [ plus ice ].

Reasons I love it: there’s no sugar [ it's sweetened with all-natural Stevia ], it contains 78 calories total, & it boosts my energy levels. Along with that, it’s super easy to travel with [ they have travel packets ]; I drank one each morning in Cabo!

Kim explains the deets on Greens First:

+ What is it?

It contains an abundance of organic fruits & vegetables including forty-nine super foods [ providing fifteen servings of fruits & veggies ]. All the food groups are in it in too [ vegetarian/vegan brown rice/vegetable pea protein/good carbs/healthy essential fatty acids/vitamins/minerals ].

+ What are the pros of drinking the shake?

It increases energy levels w/o stimulants, boosts the immune system, assists in weight management, balances blood sugar levels, alkalizes & balances body pH, detoxifies, & relieves stiff and achy joints! I have tested every whey & soy protein powder out there, & I personally digest vegan proteins [ like this ] much easier. I actually look forward to waking up so I can have my shake!

++ For more info on this product, e-mail Kim directly at KimKelly28@yahoo.com and tell her I sent you! xx.

Random tidbit: I really, really admire Kris Kardashian/Jenner [ not Kim, Kris! ]. Although sometimes she is abrasive & over the top, there are specific qualities that represent a strong, powerful woman. She is up at six AM, always appears presentable, runs numerous companies, and takes care of a huge, extroverted family. I am incredibly curious to know what kind of coffee Kris drinks…Since Monday is tomorrow, it’s back to a full work week & she is currently inspiring me to start the week off with a bang. Who inspires you to work hard?

On a very un-Kris note: two “Mini DeLites” this week, vacation messed with my blogging schedule [ sorry, that I'm not sorry... ; ) ]

[ My lovely view ; ) ]

Ok, ok, sorry for the abundance of pictures, but I just had to share some of my favorite pictures of our vacation. Upon arrival to the One&Only Palmilla Resort in San Jose del Cabo, we received the freshest papaya & strawberry popsicles along with weather that could not have been more beautiful! It was such a delight to completely shut off; to make the experience even more relaxing, Michael surprised me with a couple’s massage at their gorgeous spa [ see below ].

I definitely “rebelled” in Cabo: I certainly can admit I substituted water for tequila, forgot to wear my retainer, & had my far share of the most heavenly popcorn, chocolate soufflé. But the most amazing thing ever? Their ginger margaritas with blanco tequila & fresh squeezed lime juice…clearly, I am ready to go back!

+ Skinny vacation tips: I brought along a workout DVD [ put to use three times ], to keep me full every morning I ordered fruit & eggs for breakfast, & after the cleanse, I honestly didn’t feel the need to stuff my face.

If you’re going on vacation anytime soon, pack what I call a “snack pack.” Mine typically include raw bars, three apples, a banana, hummus packs, baby carrots, 100-calorie pack pretzels, & kid-sized Pirate’s Booty bags. I ate something healthy before ever dinner & it really helped. Cheers to summer!
