Four Vibrant Juice Recipes + my thoughts on 2013

2013 was easily the best year of my life. Let me count the ways.

I turned 30! And I feel more vibrant, alive + well than ever before.

I started this BLOG! Yes just 10 months ago I wrote my very first blog post on With Food + Love. Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing me to share with you my cooking, photography and writing.

I traveled to three countries. I am blessed beyond words and so incredibly grateful for my freedom to do so. I traveled upstate to my childhood home on the St. Lawrence River and then by train to Montreal for snow + ice + drinks + dancing for my bachelorette party. I drank piña coladas, ate my weight in tacos and lounged on the beaches of the Riviera Maya for my honeymoon. And I spent a week eating the best gluten-free pizza of my life while touring around Rome + Bologna visiting Chris’ family in Italy.

I graduated from Nutrition School and I started my own health coaching business. I quit my bartending job and took a giant leap of faith; With Food + Love Health Coaching was born. I now spend my days living, breathing, helping others become the healthiest versions of themselves.

Certainly the very best thing to happen to me in 2013, was marrying my best friend, Chris – twice!! Once in a quiet, small, quaint, no frills private ceremony at Philadelphia’s magnificent City Hall. And, the second time at my aunt + uncle’s house in Buffalo, NY. This time, although still small + quaint + with little frills, we had all our favorite people in the world join us. We read our vows and we ate farm-fresh local food; we danced, sang, laughed and ate gluten free cake and it was perfect.

I can’t believe all the amazing stuff I’ve accomplished + experienced in 2013, my heart is as full as full gets. I sure am hopeful that my 2014 will be  even a little bit more awesomer. I declare this new year a year of even more cooking, more eating + more blogging. A year I finally take those photography classes. A year I finally get that prop drawer organized. A year to dedicate time to finding movement, get that yoga mat out. A year where my blog flourishes and my health coaching business booms. Bring on the new year baby!

Here are four vibrant juice recipes to get your new year started off right. Lots of light + love in 2014 you guys!!
