Love this! Triangle pose is so great to remind yourself to keep the heart lifted and lead with it. I've been meaning to set a reminder on my laptop and phone to prompt me to pay attention to my posture every 20 minutes or so. Warm Regards, Alexandra

Cora-Lynn - you can *kind of* taste the beets, but I think it's in a good way (I really like it). Definitely experiment with the measurements and see what you prefer, but I hope you love it!
Cora-Lynn -Jan 26, 2015, 1:51PM
Cannot wait to try this tomorrow morning! I can never seem to mask the beet flavour but this looks like it might do the trick!

I have to admit, I giggled when I saw that was Bill Nye quote!! great sentiment :-) xo katie a. //
LEE @ Modern Granola -Jan 26, 2015, 3:52PM
Yes quoting Bill Nye! Love this. There is a line in the poem, Desiderata by Max Ehrmann that says: "Speak your truth quietly and clearly. Listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant. They too have their story." It's a great message, because we really can learn something from everyone.

100% agree with you on the comfort outfit! I was working in London this weekend for Camp America and was so glad I chose my comfy boots rather than my gorgeous tall black boots which are slightly too small! Wonderful post :)

bridget anne -Jan 26, 2015, 5:31PM
great tips! i've been considering buying a balaclava for outdoor runs; it gets mighty cold where I am, and my throat/chest hurts horribly after breathing in/out the freezing air. oy! we'll see if that helps!
Katherine -Jan 26, 2015, 5:26PM
Thanks for this post! I'm in very chilly Wyoming, and whenever I run outside in the winter (never when it's below 0), I always put on a ton of layers to warm up inside (lunge walk, squats, kick-jumps, toe touches, etc.) and then take most of them off to run outside. I'm sure to cover up my ears and my hands. When the air is really cold, my nose tends to run long after I've stopped, so sometimes a neti pot can help with that too.

Hi Maddie! Why yes, yes I did. I added overnight oats to my daily diet and that seemed to help a little. However, after the two weeks of raw food, I added quinoa and black beans. I also started steaming my spinach and kale which made it easier to digest, for me. Everyone reacts differently -- I'm so happy that you found a plan that works for you and that you are feeling great! xx
Maddie -Jan 24, 2015, 5:10PM
When you were eating completely raw, did you ever get really bloated? I tried eating raw once for a few weeks and realized it doesn't work well with my body. I was also drinking at least 2-3 liters of water per day too, but it all felt very hard on my digestive system. How ever I am a high carb, plant based vegan and feel more energized and better than ever :-)
