Smoothies for Dinna

Every once in a while, my body needs a hard reset.  The kind where I just pummel it with fruits and healthy fat and shit like chia seeds.  The kind I need after, oh, say, my 28th birthday weekend.  I had an INCREDIBLE time eating copious amounts of my favorite foods and drinking cocktails with […]
