Mint & Melon Smoothie

This honeydew melon, mint, and matcha smoothie is one of my absolute favorites and surprise surprise, it's a recipe my mom created. It is refreshing and light and sort of feels like a day lounging on the beach - in a glass. Best of all, it's so easy to make - blend a cup of almond milk (or milk of your choice), cup of honeydew melon (frozen is best), scoop of protein powder, scoop of matcha, and mint to taste. Then just sit back and enjoy!

Wisdom Tree Hike

One thing Alex and I have been loving about LA is the easy access to outdoor activities. It feels like an incredible hike / beach excursion / bike ride / you name it are all within easy reach and so we're trying to fit something new in each weekend. We did the Wisdom Tree hike, which also brings you behind the Hollywood sign, on an unusually cloudy SoCal day (which was actually a blessing since there is basically zero shade the entire, very vertical way). The hike is named for a striking, lone tree at one of the peaks. Look out Los Angeles hiking trails, we're coming for you!
