1. Frank’s Body Scrub.
In the spirit of Miami, I had to do some detoxing. I found this body scrub made with organic ingredients that I am looooving. And if you could smell this picture, you would understand why. It’s a nutty mix of fair-trade coffee and coconut that smells so good you’ll want to eat it. I use it in the shower, post-beach, and my skin has been baby soft. Highly recommend this beauty product!

2. Meal Planning
Two types of people exist in this world. There are the ones who can go through their whole lives without planning a single thing, and then there are people like me. I write to-do lists, thrive on following a routine, and plan my work days religiously. This isn’t to say that I can’t go with the flow, but I feel so much more accomplished when I stick to a schedule. To meal plan all you have to do is get out a notebook and plan or prepare lunch and/or dinner a day in advance. For example, make a batch of salad, brown rice, sweet potato, salmon, and steamed vegetables for the next 3 days (preferably on a Sunday night) and then you can mix and match meals all week.
3. Tuna Salad.
Since I’ve been in Miami the past two weeks I’ve been bombarding Instagram with my tuna salad lunches. Literally every juice bar, restaurant, and takeaway has found a way to fit tuna on their menu. I guess I’m so surprised about this one, since I rarely find tuna salad (especially healthy ones) in NYC. So far I’ve seen it in pitas, wraps, paninis, sweet potatoes, brown rice, on its own, Greek salad, and the list continues. In light of this I’ve been experimenting with this new tuna salad recipe made without mayo that I can’t wait to share with you.
4. Comfy Clothes.
This. When I’m home, I dig my soft, slouchy, and comfy clothes. Bella Luxx has the softest tees that I cannot get enough of. I am actually writing this post in a Bella Luxx tee and Alo Yoga sweats right now. They’re must buys, or at least worth taking a look at.
5. Crispy Not-Fried Falafel Balls.
The feedback on these babies has been through the roof and for a very good reason. The first time I made them I was a little hesitant. Primarily because I was testing it out using soaked chickpeas and not cooked ones. Nonetheless, they turned out moist, delicious, and baked to a crisp. Here’s the recipe for my Crispy Green Goddess Falafel Balls.
