I hope everyone had a lovely summer. Now it’s time to get the kids back to school and start to get ready for the fall season.

But, hey…not so fast!

We’ve still got today to celebrate summer and a few more days of warm weather to eat summer foods.

So, to celebrate the never-ending summer I’ve whipped up a little blueberry bowl of goodness that you’re gunna love.

I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
