Taylor Made Winter Tip!

Transitioning into colder weather can make it challenging to keep up with your energizing green smoothies, but as we honor the spirit of gratitude this season, we open up to the abundance of nourishing fruits, veggies, and warming spices all around us! This #beautyfood smoothie and masque will get you going and keep you warm, all while feeding your skin both inside and out.

Powerful, deep green kale is the focal point here, for its high content of both vitamin C and A, boosting collagen and promoting renewal of cells. It gives you all the vitamin K you need in a day, while boosting your body’s intake of both iron and calcium. Nutrient dense spinach and chard are added to the blend, for their variety and richness of vitamins and minerals.

We’ve added super spices ginger, cinnamon, and, for the brave, a pinch of cayenne to rev up your circulation, get your blood flowing, and energize!
