Cellulite is not forever.

Enter Lizzie May.  Not only is she my personal health and fitness guru, I’m honored to consider her one of my best friends. Plus, she’s brilliant, (and I don’t use that word lightly).

When I told her the name of my blog, (and how I at least needed to address the name) she shared with me THE Hollywood secrets to getting rid of cellulite.

So, take these tips and run!

Hello Jello:  First, get yourself some grass fed gelatin.  Now, if you’re like me, your eyes just crossed and you kind of laughed.  Because it’s not like you can just roll into your local market and say, “excuse me, but do you know where I can find (looking around to see if anyone can hear you) um, grass fed gelatin?”

May says grass fed gelatin increases collagen production, which upon further research, (you’re welcome)…

My First Published Article!

Exciting news!

Last Tuesday, my first published article hit the stands! I wrote for a national transportation newspaper called “The Trucker” and it was a fabulous experience!

I named my piece “Healthy Energy for the Road” and in it I gave the readers (mostly truckers) tips on how to stay awake and energized without caffeine. The principles I mentioned in “The Trucker” apply to everyone, so I hope you read my article too!

Loving these Testimonials!

Just wanted to share this lovely facebook testimonial from one of our Ancient Balance Bamboo Extract customers


Testimonials like this make me so happy! I wasn’t having the best day and after I read this, it quickly turned around! I’m so grateful to have a business and a product that helps people feel better about themselves.

That’s my quick share for the day:) Hope you are all having a lovely week!

Lizzie’s Loves

Welcome to the first edition of Lizzie’s Loves!  I have many “loves” otherwise known as my favorite things/products/foods/websites/recipes, and I’m excited to share some of them with you!

So, without further delay, here are a few of my June favorites!

Favorite Tea: Runa Tea

I LOVE this tea! It is so refreshing, especially on hot summer days, and it gives me a little boost of energy, without any added sugar and minimal caffeine.  The main ingredient in Runa Tea is Guayusa (gwhy-you-sa). Guayusa is an Amazonian super-leaf, that is naturally packed with caffeine and antioxidants. It also lacks the bitter tannins that most teas have, so it is naturally sweet! I buy a bottle of iced Runa Tea at my local health food store about once a week, as a treat. If your local grocery store doesn’t carry it, not to worry! You can buy this tea online and make iced tea (or hot tea if that’s what you fancy in the summer) from the comfort of your home, which is what I do most of the time. Making this tea at home is just as good and much more economical. Go get yourself some Runa Tea and feel the power of Guayusa!

Favorite Recipe Book: Best Green Drinks Ever: Boost Your Juice with Protein, Antioxidants and More by Katrine Van Wyk

I’m obsessed with this book! It has so many amazing green smoothie and juice recipes, with beautiful photos and tons of information on superfoods (I’m a superfood junkie, if you hadn’t noticed). I am always looking for new smoothie creations to mix up with my Vitamix  and this book has given me smoothie inspiration for days!!

Favorite Moisturizer: Weleda Skinfood

This moisturizer is super thick but my skin has been clearer than ever since I started using it and it hydrates better than any moisturizer I have found. It’s especially great for long flights! Due to the thick texture, it takes a little bit of time to sink into the skin, but it leaves you with the softest skin of your life.

Favorite Smoothie:  Fountain of Youth Green Smoothie 

The Fountain of Youth Green Smoothie takes the cake this month. I have had one of these smoothies at least 3 times a week and I’m pretty sure I look a little bit younger than I did last year:) The pumpkin seeds in this smoothie are an amazing source of zinc, which is essential for healthy, glowing skin. The Moso Bamboo extract is my secret weapon for youthful, glowing skin, due to it’s high silica content (silica plumps the skin) and anti-microbial properties!

I could go on for days about my favorite things, but I’ll stop here:) You’ll have to stay tuned for another edition of Lizzie’s Loves:)

Glowing Skin Delight Smoothie

Hello Beautiful People!

Green Smoothies make me happy. Seriously, they do! Oh, I’m Lizzie by the way. I’ll get around to introducing myself later, after I give you some more great smoothie recipes.

Ever since I discovered green smoothies, my life hasn’t really been the same. I don’t say that to be dramatic, I say that because it’s true. My eyes are brighter, my skin is clear and glowing, my energy is off the charts, and my cravings for junk foods are pretty much non-existent.

So, yeah, my life really hasn’t been the same since discovering green smoothies, which is why I love to share them with others.

This is my favorite smoothie for beautiful, glowing skin. It contains Moso Bamboo Extract which is chock full of silica. In fact, Bamboo extract is the richest known source of silica: it contains over 70% organic silica and is 10 times more potent than horsetail silica. Silica, known as the “beauty mineral”, prevents wrinkling of the skin by supporting collagen production and promotes growth of thick, strong hair, nails, and teeth. As an added benefit, Bamboo extract has also been shown to boost energy, strengthen the immune system, and promote joint health!

This smoothie is also great for your thyroid! It contains brazil nuts, which are high in selenium, a vital nutrient for thyroid health!

I made this smoothie in my Vitamix but you could also make it in a Nutribullet or a high-speed blender like the Ninja.



I hope you enjoy this Glowing Skin Delight as much as I do!
