Where have I been? I know I said I was getting back to my blog, and I’ve let y’all down. Although I have not been posting here, I have been keeping up with my daily fitness and healthy eating. Probably more hardcore than years ago. So, what have I been up to lately? Working, yes. Traveling for work, yes. Working out, yes. Doing yoga, yes. Cardio, yes. Finding time to read, yes. Trying to turn off technology, trying. Cooking and eating at home 90% of the time, yes.
I was saying to my husband the other day that no matter what’s happened in my life and the twists and turns that life has taken me, I have stayed truly committed to fitness, healthy living, healthy eating. Today is the 5th day of a 21-day partner yoga challenge I am doing at Kiva Hot Yoga. This is my first yoga challenge. For this challenge, we have to do yoga at least 4 days per week (I’ve done 5 days straight so far), keep up with a food journal and work with our partners to inspire each other and help each other be accountable.
My partner and I did not know each other well before this, but we’ve been chatting every day since this began. I was telling her about my some of my work background, and she said, “I hit the lottery with partners”. I sent her a few healthy recipes I was making this week including this Wonton Soup Recipe by Skinny Taste, which is so easy, fast and amazing.
I have not had the opportunity to tell my partner yet about my smoothies and smoothie bowl recipes. I made this Pomegranate Tea Smoothie Bowl, which was perfect after my 90 minute hot yoga class this morning. Pomegranate juice, tea and strawberries are the stars of this recipe, which all contain antioxidants. It’s refreshing, filling, hydrating and tasty. This is one of 200 recipes in my cookbook.

That’s all for now. More to come, Alison
Pomegranate Tea Smoothie Bowl
If you can’t find pomegranate-flavored tea, you can substitute any berry-flavored tea.
1/4 cup brewed pomegranate-flavored tea, chilled
1/4 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice
1 tbsp. liquid honey
11/2 cups frozen strawberries
Ice cubes (optional)
1. In blender, combine tea, pomegranate juice, honey and strawberries. Secure lid and blend (from low to high if using a variable-speed blender) until smooth. If a thicker consistency is desired, add ice, one cube at a time, and blend until smooth.
2. Pour into a bowl or bowls and top with any of the suggested toppings, as desired.
