The DoughBar Doughnuts

December 30, 2015

Are you sitting down for this?? I found the sweetest little snack (pun intended) that won't throw your healthy lifestyle off track (especially if you're clean eating like I am): a doughnut with only 139 calories. Yep. It's possible thanks to The DoughBar Donuts!

While I don't have much of a sweet tooth, every so often I do crave something sweet but hesitate to reach for the usual suspects. Coworkers and visitors are always bringing in doughnuts to work and it's so hard to say no so I was ridiculously excited to find The Dough Bar. Protein packed doughnuts that are baked - not fried. I really wish I had a lifetime supply of these doughnuts though - totally a guilt-free treat!

Did I mention they're made from scratch using healthy flours and macro-friendly? When ordering, you can choose from three kinds: the everyday protein doughnut, cheat day doughnuts for competitors and the prep day doughnut. And they're individually packaged so they can be frozen and microwaved right before eating. In just 15 seconds you have a ready-to-eat doughnut.

Because the company is a start-up, you have to follow them on Instagram or Facebook to find out when they're opening the site up for ordering. Holy moley they're worth it though! It's not the easiest to find foods (especially sweets) that work with a clean eating program so I'm definitely a loyal customer. I may have already placed my second order..... Cake Batter doughnuts will be at my door anytime now!

I have come to hate jean shopping. Ok, pants shopping in general thanks to #gains but my search is now over since I found these Express Girlfriend Jeans. They're my new favorite: dark wash, plenty of room in the hip and leg area and destroyed juuuust enough. And they're so comfortable I think I need to scoop up a second pair. If you love something, buy it again, right??

What Yoga Has Taught Me

December 16, 2015

In my fitness journey, I have learned the days when you don't want to work out - you should. The same holds true for yoga: the days I'd rather stay in bed a little longer are the days when I need yoga even more. For me, it's more than just a challenging workout. I've learned things about myself and the world around me since I started practicing and I continue to be amazed by the positive effect it all has on me.

There are so many benefits of yoga (see my top 5 here) but I've discovered so many more ways yoga has helped me, beyond the physical:

-I am more calm and relaxed
-I know that I can get through anything
-I am stronger mentally than I have ever been
-I reflect on what I am thankful for on a daily basis
-I see the world (and people) in a better light
-I am more patient
-I am slowing down and enjoying life, one day at a time
-I focus on the good in situations
-I am more alive

And most importantly: I'm still learning. Namaste.

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Yogi

December 14, 2015

Can you believe we are so close to Santa's arrival?! If you have a new or experienced yogi in your life but feel clueless on what to shop for, check out my Holiday Gift Guide for the Yogi below! All these items are on my wish list!!

Holiday Gift Guide, gift guide, yoga, yogi, Yogi Holiday Gift Guide, yoga accessories, activewear, yoga wear, athletic wear, gym wear, S'well bottle, mala beads, yoga mat, Alo Yoga, yoga cards

Of course every yogi needs a durable yoga mat, especially if you're practicing on a regular basis, and mat spray to keep the surface clean. Cute and functional leggings don't hurt either and Alo Yoga has been killing it with yoga wear. I love the entire holiday line!

A few of my favorite items in this wishlist include mala beads. I've been searching for the perfect mala bead necklace to enhance my practice and, thanks to this article, I think I've finally made a decision. Not too long ago, I discovered BuddhiBox which is kind of like Birchbox for yogis. I love the idea of a monthly box that delivers mindful living products to your door and another benefit: proceeds of each box are donated to a difference charity each month!
