Ginger Apple Cinnamon Detox Drink/Zombies/Cheesecake Factory/Water Kefir

That was quite the long title. Let's start with the drink recipe:

Did you know the apple belongs to the Rose family of plants? Interesting. Here is a link to a great article about the health benefits of apples

Here is some info about Cinammon: from
Cinammon may reduce inflammation, have antioxidant effects, and fight bacteria and it is super yummy. 

Ginger- great for digestion!! More info at:

Green tea:

Without further ado:

Cheesecake Factory? I went for the first time yesterday with my lovely sisters. We went to Ann Taylor for a free makeover/party thingy where Juice Beauty was demoing products and we received a free birchbox (box full of Juice Beauty products). Great stuff. Had a wonderful relaxing time with the girls.

Zombies? Tomorrow, my sister Erika and my friend Maylin, and I are making our debut at getting chased by zombies in Seattle. 5k .

Water kefir? Just received my order of the kefir crystals I have my first batch brewing on my kitchen counter. I will update more as we see how that progresses.

AND Finally a sneak peek of a dish I made tonight for dinner, that I stuffed into romaine leaves and had with a side of roasted broccoli. At first I was going to call this "Pink chicken salad" but that just seems gross, as well as the picture does not do the dish justice. So I'm going to go with "Beet, pickle chicken salad."

And I leave you with some relaxing Jennifer Charles
