Live Beaming

To me, living in California coincides with living a healthy lifestyle. 
One of my favorite things about summer, is the ability to spend majority of my free time outdoors. 
Being healthy and fit does not mean that you can only eat chicken breasts and veggies after spending excruciating hours pounding away on a treadmill. 
Sounds like torture, doesn't it? 
Why do that to ourselves when we can get similar benefits from hiking by the ocean and bbqing seasonal produce with our friends and family? 

Alright, so maybe I don't have the luxury to make it to the beach every single day, 
or stock up on the freshest veggies from the farmers market..
but like I've said before - everything is good in moderation. 
I'm constantly trying to prioritize through a jam-packed schedule. 
Between a full-time job, a part-time load at a local university, and a very active social schedule,
I too find it difficult to stay on my fitness and nutrition game sometimes. 
But it doesn't have to be so hard you guys!

A few weeks ago, I was invited to come check out Beaming,
an organic juice & superfood vitality bar, located right off the freeway, in Del Mar, California.
Now I'm no stranger to juicing, and I whole-heatedly believe in the company's mantra, 
that when "you live healthy, you glow from within". 
But here's what makes Beaming stand out from other companies around San Diego -
they're not restrictive. 
Their cleanse programs make it easy on you by including not only cold pressed juices,
but also smoothies, soups, elixirs, and... wait for it... raw entrees.
You want to know why that's so great? 
Because the hardest thing that I found about juicing was not being hungry,
because most of the time I'm so full of liquid that I'm honestly not famished..
No, the hardest thing about juicing for me personally, is that I miss chewing! 
Ha ha it's true. #firstworldproblems

Anyway, back to Beaming. 
The company was kind enough to invite me over, educate me about all their amazing products, and even give me a bunch of goodies to take home with me so I can share my story with all of you. 
I walked out with a yummy smoothie in my hand (a Sexy Mayan to be exact, omg, so good!),
a bag full of juices and salads, and a huge smile of my face. 
I incorporated the Beaming products into my on-the-go lifestyle over the next few days,
and guess what?
I feel amazing. 
The best part is that all the products I tried are delicious, so it really doesn't feel like dieting or being restrictive. 
Just living a healthy lifestyle, which is what it's all about anyway!
A freshly pulsed Sexy Mayan, a unique mix of almond milk, Beaming Protein, raw cacao, banana, date, maca, vanilla, cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg. Sooo good!
Playing the balancing game by mixing the Beaming Mary juice with a swig of vodka, at a friend's BBQ brunch. 
An otherwise boring midweek dinner spiced up with the addition of Coconut Ceviche. Perfect for summer!
While spending a day at the spa with one of my besties, I didn't want to gorge on a huge lunch and feel bloated in my bikini. Beaming to the rescue! I threw a Salad Spinner juice in my bag, sipped it when I was hungry, and felt great all day!
On a particularly hot day, the husband and I decided to hit the beach. A chilled Fennel Love juice was a perfect, refreshing snack while we were soaking in the sun. 
One of my favorite hikes to do in San Diego is around Torrey Pines. I like to head there straight after work to catch the sunset on the way up. The Beaming Protein Bites are the perfect size to reboot my energy and keep me full until dinner time.
I hope this post was a good reminder that living healthy does not have to be hard! 
The Beaming lifestyle is just one option to make it easier to incorporate superfood into your active lifestyle.
