ALOE MEETS YOGURT

ALOE MEETS YOGURT

One of my goals for 2019, along with I assume many other individuals, is to maintain a healthier lifestyle! More working out, healthier food, the works! One of my favorite breakfast and lunch snacks is yogurt – I was recently introduced to Alove yogurt and I can’t wait to share it with you!

WHAT IS IT?

Aloe vera yogurt has been popular in Japan since 1994, and Alove is the first to make it available in the US! Aloe vera yogurt is all about having a tasty (yet healthy) snack – who doesn’t love that?!  Alove yogurt comes in 6 delicious flavors: Original, Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach, Kiwi, and Vanilla.


WHY IS IT GREAT?

Alove is full of all sorts of great things, including being a great source of both calcium and protein (2 things I’m not very good at including in my diet). On the flip side, what’s not in it? Alove is non-GMO and is free of High Fructose Corn Syrup as well as free of artificial flavors. I think a better question might be, why isn’t it great? And the answer to that would be, NOTHING!


WHAT DO I THINK?

If I had to describe Alove in one word: Delicious! I had the chance to test out all 6 flavors and I have to say they’re all great, but my personal fave is strawberry! Not to mention I’m a huge fan of the aloe cubes that provide some extra texture! I personally can’t wait to see if they come out with more flavors I can get my hands on!


WHERE CAN YOU FIND IT?

Lucky for you, Alove can be found in hundreds of stores around the US! Checkout their store locator map to find the nearest location to you!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always a fan of healthy food that TASTES GOOD! Makes it just a little bit easier to reach our health goals, am I right? Head on over to Instagram and give Alove a follow! Have you tried Alove Yogurt? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

1st Hike of the Season

1st Hike of the Season

Being a PNW native, one of my favorite activities just so happens to be hiking! I went on my first hike of the season this past weekend and it was amazing! Nothing like your first hike of the year to remind you you’re out of shape am I right? Let’s be honest, my butt was pretty sore. During the beginning fall months of last year, Peyton (the BF) and I got into the groove of hiking almost every weekend and I’m hoping to get that going again! We started off easy last week with a classic hike up Poo Poo Point Trail. (Side note – dog below is not mine. Just my friends adorable pup named Ellie ♥).


With the plan to hike *almost* every weekend this summer, I started a list of my top 10 hikes to accomplish. Some are past favorites, others I have yet to conquer!

  1. Rattlesnake Ledge:
    • 4 miles round trip
    • Gain: 1,160 ft.
  2. Mt. Pilchuck:
    • 5.4 miles round trip
    • Gain: 2,300 ft.
  3. Snow Lake:
    • 7.2 miles round trip
    • Gain: 1,800 ft.
  4. Rachel Lake:
    • 8 miles round trip

    • Gain: 3,800 ft.

If you’re anything like me, you also like to hike *in style*. Who’s with me? Check out some of my fave staples! (And yes, I know, hiking boots are not cute. But let me tell you, your feet will thank you)!


Do you love to hike during the warm months? Would loooove suggestions to add to my ever growing list of trails!
