Healthy is Happy | Dr Smood

I had the pleasure of dining, with some fellow influencers from South Beach, at a charming and health conscious café called Dr Smood; along with our own personal nutritionist who walked us through some of their most popular menu items. That being said, I only thought it fair to share some of my favorite health tips that were mentioned during the luncheon!img_3686
First off, can we just admire the décor and interior of Dr Smood? It is definitely the perfect place to come for a healthy meal and chill out. This was the Wynwood, Miami location.

Tidbits!

  • Drinking lots of water is amazing for your body, but you should always try to drink Alkaline water as much as you can. Our nutritionist used a great example to explain the different between regular water and alkaline water. (So you have a shower, and it is constantly getting rinsed off whenever you are inside. But you still have to go in and clean your shower every now and then, even though its continuously getting rinsed. The same applies to your body, drinking water is good to help clean out your system, but drink alkaline water allows your body to flush out all the bad toxins.)
  • We all know moderation is key, and sometimes its hard to avoid that sweet treat. Don’t feel bad for indulging, just know how to treat your body after a cheat meal. For example, if you eat a yummy glazed doughnut, try to help your body digest the treat faster, by drinking a lot of water and liquids.
  • Chaga, is a great alternative to coffee, it gives you all the energy and helps your body to metabolism, but it is even better for you!
  • There is a difference between cacao, cocoa and chocolate. An item can not be labeled as cacao unless it is unadultured, raw cacao from the cacao tree. Chocolate on the other hand has been manipulated and has added ingredients that may not be as healthy. And cocoa is just a fancy way to say chocolate and can sometimes confuse people on whether its raw, healthy chocolate, or sugary refined chocolate.

My favorite item would have to be the Cold Pressed Vegan Mylk, Non-Dairy Chocolate Mylk. Tastes better than regular chocolate milk, but its full of healthy ingredients like brazil nut mylk, dates, cacao nibs, cacao powder, cinnamon and vanilla! Yumm

Cheers to the weekend and keeping out bodies healthy and happy!

1. What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?

Oh this question is always a hard one and I can never think of one! I guess I would have to say the most recent embarrassing thing that happened to me was hitting my head on the bus door the other day. I just moved to a new school, so it was even more awkward and I am pretty sure everyone on the bus saw it.

2. What is your favorite cuisine?

I love seafood! I grew up in Alaska, and spend summer there so we always eat lots of seafood!

3. Describe your style in 3 words.

Simple, Chic, Comfy

4. What is the last book your read?

I listened to “50 Shades of Grey” on Audible.

5. What is a workout/exercise you recommend doing?

Something you love! It is much easier to get a workout when doing an activity you enjoy, rather than going to the gym. I prefer to play beach volleyball.

6. What is you favourite movie and why?

It’s a close tie, I love “Pride and Prejudice” the newer one with Kiera Knightly because I am a sucker for those old, victorian styled romances. I always thought it would be fun to dress up like those ladies and live in that time for a day or two. But I also love the “Underworld” series. Vampires are my weakness. 😛

7. Describe something you’ve always wanted to do.

I have always wanted to ride camels to the pyramids of Egypt

8. What are your top 3 places you’d like to travel?

Egypt, Thailand and Africa

9. What is your holy grail product?

I love Last Blast mascara by Covergirl, I could have a makeup collection with only mascara and be fine! haha

Relaxing spa day every time!
