What if life could be less about the DAILY GRIND, and more about the DAILY GROOVE?

Imagine what your week would look like if that were true…

We’re so pumped to be a part of the upcoming Daily Grind to Daily Groove Summit where along with 20 other health and wellness experts we’ll be exploring this very topic.

This Summit is totally going to rock and we want you to join us!

Click here to sign up now.

Learn the latest mindfulness and meditation techniques, stress management, spirituality practices, holistic health and nutrition tips plus real life techniques to help you balance your mind, body and soul—starting today!

Join us here and get started today turning your DAILY GRIND into a DAILY GROOVE with our brand new mood-boosting smoothie.

This smoothie will put the pep back into your step featuring two of our all-time favorite superfoods: Maca and raw cacao.

Maca is a Peruvian root known for it’s ability to help balance hormones and stabilize mood. It has an earthy taste with an uplifting effect. It’s also an “adaptogen,” which means it can help manage stress levels, enhance strength and stamina, and increase energy and endurance.

All this from one little root!

Raw cacao is another one of our favorite mood enhancers! It contains a powerful ingredient known by some as the mood improver but more specifically known as anandamide. Anandamide is referred to as the bliss molecule, because it creates a feeling of euphoria. Cacao is also rich in tryptophan which is crucial for the production of serotonin – the “feel good” neurotransmitter. Rich in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin C, and phosphorus, you can’t go wrong with this wonder superfood.

With lots of love and groove,
