What is your passion?

What is your definition of wellness? 

Wellness is nourishing not only your body, but mind and spirit as well. All on a regular and consistent basis.

Staying hydrated, reading, spending time in nature on a regular basis, making each meal I have as nutrient dense as possible, daily shots of apple cider vinegar and starting my days with yoga and pranayama . 

Will you share one of your favorite recipes with us? 

My Classic FBN green smoothie, hands down.

1 cup cashew or oat milk

1/2 frozen banana

2 tbsp almond butter

1/2 cucumber

BIG handful of spinach

1 date

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

1 tbsp. ground flaxseeds

Sprinkling of ashwagandha, lion’s mane mushrooms, lots of cinnamon, pink sea salt

A few ice cubes

Sometimes I add matcha powder and turmeric to this.

One of your favorite snacks? 

B’s bliss balls that I make weekly in flavors like carrot cake, cacao brownie batter, oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookie, and cookie dough.

Do you have any clean beauty brands you love right now? 

@OseaMalibu and @ulivskincare are my favorite skin care lines. They’re magical.

Favorite beauty ritual? 

Tongue scraping and flossing, I’m borderline obsessed with flossing. I think it is underrated. And getting 8 hours of sleep on a regular basis. That’s what works best for my body and I love waking up feeling well rested and ready for my day. 

How do you manage stress? 

By getting outside with Mother Nature, journaling, taking @tonic_cbd OG CBD oil and regularly incorporating ashwagandha powder into my lifestyle

Favorite song(s) and book(s) right now? 

Oh, I’ve been on a weeknd kick for quite a while. His latest album is stellar. I’m also really loving Gajumaru by Yaima for all the yoga/feel good vibes- it speaks to the soul. 

As far as books, I recently read Paulo Coelho’s By The River Piedra I sat and wept and couldn’t put it down. And for some daily insight I enjoy reading passages from both: 

Journey to the Heart by Melody Beattie

Meditations for the Mat by Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison

What did you enjoy about the Love Beauty Wellness Festival?
