What’s your philosophy on healthy living? My philosophy on healthy living is to eat well, drink plenty of water, exercise regularly and get plenty of sleep. Eating well means eating natural, whole foods as much as possible.
How did you get started blogging? I recently started blogging because I wanted (and still want) to share my passion for running and living a healthy life style with others. I hope to inspire people to make changes (big or small) that will help them be healthier, feel better, and live longer!
What’s your favorite snack? My favorite snack right now is a smoothie. These days I’m really enjoying a green smoothie-large handful of spinach, ½-frozen banana, ¼ cup frozen blueberries, ½ cup unsweetened so delicious almond milk (5g of protein), ½ cup of water, and 1 tbsp. of ground flaxseed. Then I top it with purely elizabeth granola (usually pumpkin fig flavor because it’s my favorite). It is delicious!
