This is the third Ellie Activewear Box that I share – I love them!  Ellie is a workout wear and gear subscription.  Every month you receive 5 amazing items for your active lifestyle.  Your usual box can include a sports bra, a top, leggings or capris, a jacket, accessories, and a piece of equipment.  The best part is that this box is so motivating!!  Because when it comes to working out, some days we all need an extra push.  Wearing these awesome outfits instantly puts me in “Workout Mode” and makes me feel that I can complete the fitness routine that I planned for that day!

Take a look at my other recent reviews of Ellie Activewear Boxes, so that you can see what every subscriber has received the past three months.  🙂

There’s nothing better than doing something positive for your health first thing in the morning, when you arrive home from work, or after your workout!  You can spark your metabolism & satiate your hunger with the absolutely amazing power of natural whole foods.  If you would like to increase the amount of vegetables or fruits that you eat daily / weekly – you will love these quick smoothie recipes -I suggest you try them all!    


2 cups chopped pineapple / 1 banana / 2 cups kale (remove stems) or spinach / 1 cup coconut milk / 1/2 cup water


2 cups chopped cantaloupe / 1 banana / 2-3 chopped carrots / 1 tangerine (optional) / 1/2 tbsp. chopped ginger / 1 cup coconut water or water or almond milk / 2 tbsp flax-seed


1 packet Quaker instant oatmeal / 1 cup cashew milk / 1 banana / 1/2 cup blueberries / 1/2 cup blackberries (optional) / 1/3 cup Greek yogurt / 2 tbsp chia seeds


1 cup chopped strawberries / 1/2 a carrot / 1 handful of spinach / 1 banana / 1/3 of a cucumber / 1 cup soy milk / 2 tbsp flax-seed / add a little cranberry juice


1 banana / 1 handful of spinach / 1 cup blueberries / 2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt / 1/2 cup coconut or almond or soy milk / 1 tbsp honey


1 apple, cored (I do not peel it) / 1.5 cups strawberries / 1 cup almond or cashew or soy milk (I buy all three) / 1/2 cup yogurt (strawberry, plain or vanilla) / 2 tsp honey

These easy to make smoothies are high in vitamins A and C, others contain anti-inflammatory properties, some possess antioxidants, and others help balance the blood-sugar.  I have so many smoothie recipes that I prepare on a weekly basis, these are from these past few weeks.  I hope that this post encourages you to eat more fruits & veggies, feel free to share!  Enjoy & let me know what you think!

** I do not add sugar to any of my smoothies.  These recipes are based on my personal taste. 🙂
