Healthy Rainbow Recipes

To Celebrate Pride!

Hi Friends,

How’s your weekend going? I hope its been fun and fulfilling. I am still high on life after such an incredible BOOTYcamp event last week.  Big thank you to the product sponsors ZICO Coconut WaterALOHA , and Clearly Kombucha for your generosity. It’s always nice to work with companies/people who believe in what you’re doing and want to genuinely be a part of a cool experience.

So grateful to everyone who took part in making the event such a success and an uplifting, BOOTYlicious experience. My butt loves you. I hope you know how BOOTYful you are inside and out. I’ll be posting an event recap with fun photos (and even funnier stories) on the blog soon, so stay tuned. And even though I’m sore, I already want some more……. For upcoming events, healthy hour monthly meet ups, and training tips to keep your BUTT happy for life, SUBSCRIBE to my email newsletter below:



Since the month of June is LGBT Pride month, I thought it would be fun to share some delicious rainbow recipes with you to celebrate. San Francisco is decked out in rainbow and it’s awesome to live in a city that supports LOVE and equality. June became LGBT pride month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred in late June of 1969. More recently, the landmark Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges was decided on June 26, 2015, which granted marriage equality to same-sex couples. Try out these healthy rainbow-colored detox recipes to show your support and pride for this historic month.
