favorites from the chalkboard

I recently discovered that Pressed Juicery has an AMAZING healthy living site called The Chalkboard. The site shares healthy recipes, fashion and fitness ideas and of course – lots and lots of juice and smoothie recipes! Totally up my alley.

You can read about the nutritional benefits from juicing here. Here’s a few of my favorite articles and recipes from The Chalkboard. It’s definitely one of those sites I’ll be coming back to for healthy inspiration and ideas!

ARTICLE: Breaking Out of a Creative Rut

What I wish someone had told me early on in my budding adult life is that it is okay to let your creative work of choice go when you’re disappointed, stuck or starting to find other things alluring. Whether you write, paint, sing, or sell – all work is creative work in my book – it is okay to let go. And this is the big part: Letting it go does not mean you are quitting.

  1. YUM–that first smoothie sounds amazing! I never would have thought of combining strawberries with red peppers and lemon and cayenne and apple, too, but especially the peppers!. It’s pretty much all of my favorite things combined. Thanks for the inspiration!
