What Do They Eat? - Green "Esmerelda" Smoothies

Casa O'te Miti
Once in a while you take a vacation to a place that you don't ever want to leave.  It's the perfect temperature, the food is delicious, the landscape is colorful and the people shine from the inside out.  Sayulita, Mexico has my heart right now.  I could have easily stayed in this small fishing village for another couple of weeks or until the end of winter...  
Sayulita is truly a magical place.  It's no wonder that the lovely Canadian couple, Patrick Garramone and Vanessa Juliet, have chosen to return for another season in this surfing hot spot to run the morning shift at Tacos on the Street.  We discovered Sandrita's en la Manana at Tacos on the Street (on the corner of Rodriguez and Av. Revolucion) on our first day when my boyfriend and I were out to find the perfect fish taco (we had many!).  FYI, Tacos on the Street does not serve tacos until the evening but in the morning from 9am to 3pm it's Sandrita's en la Manana and they serve the best smoothies, juices, organic coffee drinks, homemade muffins and vegan loaves in town.  Sandrita makes all the baked goods and Vanessa and Patrick were instrumental in creating the selection of mouth-watering smoothies.  They have fun names like, Poncho, Valentina, and Gaudalupe to match their different characteristics.  My favorite is the Esmerelda and it is fittingly green in color. 

A New Year, A New You

True life is lived when tiny changes occur. 
-Leo Tolstoy 

New Year, New You 
A lot of people begin the New Year by making resolutions. We’ve all been there. We take a vow to lose weight, exercise more or spend more time with our family. We start the year with great intentions, but then we quickly relapse into old habits. Why is it so hard to stick to those New Year’s resolutions? 
Here are some ways you can make your intentions a reality this year: 

1. Write down your intentions and keep them in a visible place, like taped to your bedroom mirror or the dashboard of your car. 

2. Get to the source of whatever is keeping you in a rut. Are you in a stressful relationship that causes you to eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s every night? Are you stressed at your job and feel too tired to exercise after work? If you don’t tackle the root of the behavior, it will be much harder to accomplish your goal. 

3. Be clear about what your life would look like once you achieve your goal. If you resolve to go to the gym more, how will this benefit you? Get connected to the result of your action, and you will be more likely to stick with your plan.
