Hi loverbuns!

Just incase you were wondering, yes the title of this post was inspired by Young Jeezy’s song “All White Everything.” I couldn’t resist.

I’m writing to you from San Francisco, CA! I’m here speaking at Produce for Better Health’s Annual Conference 2013: The Consumer Connection! I’ve been enjoying the past few days in the city trying some fun restaurants, meeting new friends, and walking up lots and lots of hills! My gluteus and calves are going to look superb when I get home. My stay in San Francisco have been incredible and I feel so lucky to be a part of DOLE and work alongside such talented bloggers like Kathy Patalsky of Healthy. Happy. Life. I will get into more detail and post photos from the conference when I get back!

Ok I don’t know what it is, but recently I have been absolutely obsessed with all things green. Maybe because it’s March and St. Patrick’s day is on Sunday? Oh, and I’m not just talking about the color. I’m talking about micronutrient rich green veggies my friends.

For the past week, I have been living off of clean green meals. I’m pretty sure this obsession is all thanks to Suja Juice (ummm how cute is their packaging?), who sent me a shipment of their finest USDA certified organic cold pressed juices. Which ones do I go for first? The vibrant emerald green juices!

Some of you have been asking on Instagram, Twitter, and FacebookWhere do I find Suja Juice?” Suja informed me of their awesome Suja Locator feature on their website! Just type in your zipcode and it will show you where it’s carried!

Here’s a look at my recent green rabbit food addiction:

And in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I have to leave you guys with an awesome green monster smoothie recipe! This is one of my absolute favorite green smoothies, and it totally deserves some love. So I’m bringing this recipe back out of the archive! This was created by the incredible Chef AJ, and I have been hooked ever since she first made it for me. This smoothie is an excellent “first green smoothie” for anyone who is hesitant to try them.

It’s Easy Being Green Smoothie
Recipe by Chef AJ

1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup almond milk
1 bunch kale
2 frozen ripe bananas (peel and freeze beforehand)

about 1 cup of mint leaves (start with less and add to taste)

Start off by combing orange juice and almond milk with kale and blend until smooth. Then add the frozen banana, mango, and mint leaves.
Blend until thick and smooth, pour into 3 glass jars and enjoy. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Have a happy St. Patricks Day!

  9. Saw Suja juice today at WFM and wasn’t sure about picking up a bottle, but now I’ll have to give it a try since I know it’s yummy. And you’re so right, the packaging is super pretty.

  13. Hey Pretty Lady!

    Thanks for being so inspiring! Us graphic designers have to stay healthy too especially since we live behind our computers. I’m lovvvvving Suja’s packaging! I’m a sucker for amazingly designed packaging and will buy something solely based on this haha. And I’m seriously about to run to the store just for that Spinach and Kale dip. WOW. YUM.

    Keep being awesome girl!

  14. Catherine, I’ve been keeping up with your blog for months now. You’ve been so inspiring and I’ve loved the new healthy recipe ideas you’ve given me, they always turn out delicious and satisfying :) I have been wanting to try juicing lately and when I saw this post I went to the Suja Juice website to place a shipment, since we have no stores in Alaska that carry it (yay Alaska…) and find out that it’s ridiculously expensive to ship up here (again, yay Alaska!). I don’t know why I was surprised, it’s expensive to ship almost anything up here. I was curious if you have tried juicing at home and have any juicing recipes I could make myself instead?

  15. Thank you for sharing all this great green food, especially Suja juice. I kept seeing it at Whole Foods, but at $9 a bottle, it seemed pretty pricey compared to other brands with similar ideologies. Seeing you rave about it convinced me to buy a few to try before diving in and getting the entire 3 day cleanse. I just bought the Vanilla Cloud and Glow and am going to try them tomorrow. I am a big fan of green juices, but usually get them fresh pressed so this will be a change. Today I started off with a fresh green juice made at Whole Foods, which is really just such a great way to start the day.

  16. First, I have to thank you for all of your excellent recipes! I don’t want to comment on each one, because that would just be annoying for both of us, but trust me when I say that these look phenomenal.

    Second, I, too, am obsessed with that kale dip from TJ’s! SOOOOO delicious!
