Healthy is Happy | Dr Smood

I had the pleasure of dining, with some fellow influencers from South Beach, at a charming and health conscious cafΓ© 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 dΓ©cor 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!

Body suits are totally in! And I am in love with this one piece from Forever 21. The perfect staple for your summer wardrobe. Bodysuits are not only a swimwear fashion statement, but you can throw on a pair of shorts, jeans or skirt and make it an appropriate outfit for daytime.

You literally can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to follow my social media @aroonmelane to keep updated on all I get up to in South Beach Miami. ❀

The Versace Mansion

Formerly known as the Versace Mansion, The Villa Casa Casuarina is definitely a must see destination, only steps away from Miami Beach. Although the only way to take a peek inside of the mansion is through a dinner reservation at Gianni’s, a booked stay at one of the ten different suites, or some other form of reservation, you should take any opportunity you have to explore the amazing grounds.

Today, I was lucky enough to spend the morning exploring the mansion and snapped some images; from the Azure suite, to the stunning pool made of 24 karat gold! I was definitely itching to jump in the pool with this crazy Florida summer heat, next time I’ll remember to pack a swimsuit.

Miami Wandering

In case you didn’t know, I’ve moved to Miami Beach for the next couple of months and could not be more excited! Two things you will learn very quickly: 1. the night is never over in Miami and 2. it’s a foodies paradise.

And what better way to start out this new adventure than with a bright, colorful image to greet the visitors of AroonMelane. Shoutout to this random apartment building that kept their hedges trimmed and grass green.
