A couple weeks ago I received a sample of All Day Energy Greens dietary supplement from the Institute for Vibrant Living.

Scroll through the timeline of your favorite social network and you’re bound to read a post or two about someone’s current fitness journey. They’re posting photos of meals, miles run, or gym hours clocked in.

Today I’m embarking on a summer green smoothie challenge (care to join me? I offer a guided green smoothie challenge with a coaching session and private FB group. Click here for more info) along with a fitness challenge.
There’s a little bit of shaming around coupon clipping and I’d like us to get over it. While I personally shy away from packaged foods, I know that my clients and readers can’t always shop like that, so I encourage coupon clipping, especially when transitioning to a plant-based diet.
