Be real, Eat real, Just real
While walking down the path I am always thrilled to see People's Pops which offers fresh, local fruit popsicles and shaved ice. I got the apricot popsicle which was so refreshing and cool. It was exactly what I needed on our warm walk down the High Line.
When someone first explains what a contrast shower is, it can seem very undesirable due to the cold interval. I've always had very warm showers so the first thought of including a cold interval was not something I was fond of. However, many of my friends including myself have found many benefits of incorporating contrast showers into our daily routine. I know for myself, I have a lot of energy afterwards. I have now used contrast showers for almost a year and I actually look forward to the cold water down my body!
IMPORTANT: Do not get discouraged after your first shower, it took me 3-4 days consecutively to get used to the routine.

I am always looking for new baking recipes so that I can satisfy my sweet tooth! This recipe is simple, delicious and does not cost
very much. Almond flour has become a staple in my diet as the paleo diet does
not contain any wheat flour. This bread is so moist because of the eggs,
oil and honey it is great for your morning breakfast or in the evening as a dessert with a nice cup of
tea! The oil really gives the bread a moist texture. I use grapeseed oil by
President’s Choice. The MOST IMPORTANT part of this recipe is making sure you mix the egg whites until you form stiff peaks. Check out this video on how to ensure you have the right consistency.
