Annie Lawless, creator of www.blawnde.com, regularly shares with her readers not only her passion for fashion, traveling, food, but also health and wellness — and in this case, how to get bikini body ready. Her love for teaching others about such topics through her very own knowledge is evident, as she does so in a positive and helpful style. After leaving law school to pursue these passions, Annie made sure to share what inspired her, which allowed people to naturally gravitate towards her blog. This also led her to help create Suja, a cold-pressured beverages company focused on providing organic, Non-GMO drinks around the U.S. Below, Annie takes feeling good and looking good in the total right direction!

Okay, before you begin rolling your eyes about reading yet another “bikini body” blog post, give me a chance to explain! It seems to me like there’s a lot of buzz around getting beach ready really fast, and I’m going to tell you that it’s all about incorporating healthy habits all year long, not just a week before your big vacation. Feeling your best really begins with a healthy and sustainable lifestyle that you can continue from year to year, and makes you feel whole and fulfilled. I supplement a healthy diet with daily yoga, exercise and juices (of course!), and that’s what keeps me fueled and feeling fabulous for the long haul.
But, let’s be really honest here. Sometime we slip up and have too many dinner outings, skip yoga or start stress-snacking, and our bodies show it. Sometimes it happens right before a big trip that includes lounging at the beach, or simply right before a summer filled with sandy trips to the coast. For me, I’ve found that giving myself a little kick in the butt with a delicious cleansing recipe can really provide the jumpstart and motivation I need to keep my lifestyle as healthy as possible. Here’s my favorite cleansing and boosting recipe that leaves me feeling energized and ready to go!
Mountain Magic from Suja Juice Solution
– 3 lemons, peel removed
– ½ cup blueberries
– 1 tablespoon chia seeds
– Maple syrup, to taste
– Pinch of cayenne
– 8-10 ounces of water
Juice the lemons, then combine the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
This recipe, along with several others from the Suja Juice Solution, always helps me stay on track when it comes to my diet and getting my body beach ready in no time. Although it’s always important to keep in mind that the most important thing is a healthy, balanced lifestyle, there’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a boost!
