Traveling can be fun, but it isn't always glamorous. Flying on a plane for long hours takes a major toll on the body. I travel overseas often, and I used to have issues with constipation, bloating and fatigue for days after a long flight. Thankfully, over the years, I have discovered some surefire ways to stay healthy while traveling.

Hello lovelies! It's been a while since I've showed my face over here. Life just got too hectic after I returned from Finland and I think since then I've had a total of 2 days off. I've also joined a gym and actually going there regularly (I only do classes, not a fan of gyms), bought a cute bicycle from Craigslist for $35 and riding it all around our island. Love this lifestyle.
I am determined to write more blog posts, but you can also see me posting lots of photos on Instagram, yapping away on Facebook, as well as doing a Periscope challenge(Soon!Follow katloveskale). So please tune in to my other medias for daily musings.
Since St. Patrick's Day just passed I'm in a mood for all things green. Today I had green juice called Ensalada from Urban Remedy and enjoyed it by the waterfront near Ferry Building here in San Francisco. It was such a beautiful day so I wasn't rushing anywhere. Well, ok, I was at first. I had made an appointment to get an ombre hair color at a large hair stylist institute, but work meeting I attended just before was longer than expected and I was 2 minutes past the 10 minute grace period they allow you to be late. 2 mins! So they cancelled my appointment. How gracious. To be honest I didn't really care because the thought of sitting there for 5 hours getting my hair done sounded horrifically long on a sunny day like this. So I just walked out happy and started walking.
Ok, back to the greens. I cannot remember where I saw this recipe but since I love keylime pie I knew I had to make this smoothie.
Keylime Pie Smoothie
1 ripe avocado
¼ cup raw cashews
2 dates, pitted
1 handful of spinach
¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp chopped pecans
2 limes, juiced
½ lime, zest
1 cup almond milk
pinch of salt (himalayan or sea salt)
Mix everything together in a blender until smooth and enjoy with a smile on your face. It'll be even better if you soak your cashews, pecans and dates for a couple of hours so they soften. But if not, no biggie.
