I love this blog. More like obsessed, actually. And I love what it has become over the past year and a half (or so). I'm getting some great feedback from you, my readers, telling me that my posts are inspiring you to have fun with your health and try new – sometimes odd – healthy things. Shout out to Angela who now drinks Kombucha instead of her morning coffee and Sarah who is using my recipes to help maintain her weight loss. That's awesome to hear. Like really really awesome. With that said…
I think I can do better.
SO I wanted to let you all know that HealthyStacey.com is going to be going under a little construction over the next month (or so). A face lift, if you will. I will be rolling out a new look, new pages and new products. Yeah, you heard me. Products. I'm all grows up now.
Please be patient with me as I may not be able to update it with the weekly-ish blog posts per usual. But once it's all complete, it's going to look AWESOME, be AWESOME, and YOU are going to love it.
To keep you going in the meantime, I have included a great recipe below that just happens to be my latest obsession.
As always, thank you for being a reader. It means the world to me.
CARROT GINGER SMOOTHIE
Great for post-workout inflammation and deflating bloated stomachs
- 1 cup of coconut water
- 2 large carrots
- 1 stub of fresh turmeric (or 1 teaspoon of the powdered spice)
- 1 stub of fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons Great Lakes gelatin (or protein powder if you don't have gelatin yet – but seriously, you should get it soon; my hair is looking awesome and my sore muscles are feeling great ever since I started using it).
- Dash of coconut milk
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Toss all ingredients in a NutriBullet (or blender of your choice)
- Drink up!
Note: If you're having it post workout, make sure to drink it in the first 30 minutes and go easy on the coconut milk. But if you're just enjoying it for the health benefits, go to town on the coconut milk and – Heck! Add a drizzle of honey while you're at it. Woooo. Somebody stop me.
