The holidays are upon us...

Jamieson Van Loan

We are in the thick of it. The 2017 holiday season. It is mostly, and more importantly, known as the season of giving and being around the ones you love. It is also the season of overindulgence, holiday parties, hot cocoa, cocktails, eggnog, cookies and the rest of the yummy bits of this time of year. And don't get me wrong- BRING IT ALL ON! 

Life is about balance. It's about eating two peppermint brownies and having a glass of wine followed by a yoga class, a Maikana power bowl and fifteen minutes of meditation. It is not about beating yourself up for indulging and going against you're normal healthy lifestyle. It is appreciating that you CAN eat a slice of pie and hot cocoa, but balance it out with a healthy choice later. Maikana is a firm believer in life balance. We all have our highs and lows with nutrition and lifestyle choices. Maikana is here to help keep you in check during the week. 
 

We have some exciting things coming up this week!

Hello Summer?! It's me, Maikana.

Jamieson Van Loan

I don't know about you guys but I'm sorta over this weather. I legit turned on the heat this past week and debated lighting a fire. Full disclosure- I am pretty much always cold, unless sweating in a hot yoga class. So this 50s and raining weather is blech to my freezing feet. 

BUT the weather Gods have been listening to my complaining and have decided to bless us all with sunny skies and warmer weather next week. Meet you guys at the beach?! 

With the warm weather finally approaching, I am feeling a true  sense of bliss ahead of me. I am not sure if it's because I grew up in Fiji or that I left a part of my soul in Costa Rica but warm weather equates happy, happy, joy, joy in my life. It makes me want to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine and more importantly, it really awakens my healthy eating habits. In cold weather, I tend to want to eat slightly heavier, hearty meals. With warm weather I want salads, power bowls, seafood, chilled soups and small bites. I want to really shed my winter skin (and weight) and begin to get my summer glow on. From a lovely tan (use SPF people!) to really starting to glow from the inside, out. Feeding your body the proper foods will truly make your skin brighten and radiate a healthy tone. Look at watermelon- its 90% water and (deliciously!) hydrates your body. It is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, which aid in collagen production and anti-aging. Ask Katie Diehl of Diehl Nutrition...she's our go-to for all good-to-glow foods. 

Basically, what I'm saying is eat better and your skin will regain its natural healthy glow and thank you! I'm not saying it has to be Maikana (but hey, we make it pretty darn convenient) but with the warmer weather on the horizon, more skin is bound to show so make sure it's glowing! 

Have a great and WARM weekend!!
