That’s my motto for 2018.

Do you have a motto for the year? If yes, I want to hear it so we can shout from the rooftop together!

Last year I was constantly wearing myself out trying to do it all, especially with the cookbook. I did a really bad job of keeping my energy level consistent. I was in the mindset if I just powered through this photoshoot or 17th round of recipe testing with nothing in the nutrient tank, I would be fine. The truth is, I wasn’t fine. I felt depleted, and exhausted and ended up being a real grouch (sorry babe!).

So this year, I am refocusing my energy on my health and state of mind. I want to be the best Lauren I can be. Did I just say that? Anyway, I am currently on a smoothie kick to help jump start my mornings and I’m freaking loving it.

I have been mixing it up between a green, mixed berry and now this Grapefruit-Ginger Burst Smoothie! Even though it’s freakishly cold outside (sorry, east coast!), nothing cheers me up than a burst of citrus during the winter months. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, ginger, chia seeds, flaxseed, peaches, and mint make this smoothie shine. But! What really kicks it up a notch is the addition of Bob’s Red Mill Protein + Fiber Booster.

Check it. Bob’s Red Mill Protein + Fiber Booster is an all natural unique blend made from pea protein powder, chicory root fiber, psyllium husk powder, chia seeds, and other beneficial probiotics. It’s unflavored, unsweetened, gluten free, and a great source of omega-3, fiber, and protein. 1 serving of Protein & Fiber Booster equals 20g of plant-based protein per serving. Can you say winning?

If you are looking to add a burst of sunshine to your mornings definitely give this Grapefruit-Ginger Burst Smoothie a go!
