Are you ever pissed you aren’t Beyonce? I am. She just slays it. All day errrrrrday. Watching her on tour right now makes me want to join a hip hop class and start dancing for another exercise routine. I don’t know where the hell I would go for adult hip hop class and I know I would be humiliated trying it, but I still want to do it. Back in my clubbin’ days, I would dance so hard that I would leave daclub with my hair completely soaked in sweat and jeans 5 sizes too big from all the butt and crotch sweat going on. Sweet image, eh? Those days were seriously so bomb.

Guess what? I have 2 consultations this week for Invisalign. One of my best friends sent me a link to a faster route: clear braces. I swiftly gave her a “hell no” and went straight back to searching for affordable orthodontist. Even though that doesn’t exist. So I’m going to talk to 2 different places and get a couple quotes and hopefully start the long road to straighter teeth by next week! Thanks for all your suggestions and mentioning price a couple times, it’s been super helpful with figuring out what I should be paying. Especially since I don’t have dental insurance. Sad face emoji.

Who is pumped about Cinco de Mayo this week?! I’m really excited about any holiday that has to do with food. Because then my job is more fun. This recipe was more so inspired by my recent trip to Jamaica. We had piña coladas on a regular basis there so I thought bringing it back in the form of a healthy post workout treat sounded like a wonderful idea. But if you don’t want this to be as healthy, you can totally add some rum to the mix to make it a real deal piña colada. The choice is yours, you smart adult, you.

Be sure to check the blog tomorrow and Thursday for two more Cinco de Mayo inspired recipes AND a round up of even more recipes that you just MUST try. Okokokokokokok. Ok.

    Keep us posted on the invisalign! I want to do invisalign… I am 43 and I am not doing braces again! But wait – your teeth look good to me?

    1. juli says:

      i go in tomorrow to get my impressions and start invisalign in about a month. my teeth are pretty straight but have shifted since i stopped wearing my retainers and they are just going to shift more with time, so i want to fix it now and get back to wearing my retainers every night!

    Absolutely Amazing!!!! I didn’t add any protein powder to mine just because I recently ran out and I don’t think it made a difference for the taste as I said it tasted amazing! It made for an wonderful relaxing treat this evening sitting out on our deck enjoying these hot summer nights!

    I looked into Invisalign, but ended up getting Lumineers instead because it corrected all my issues including whitening and symmetry. They are porcelain veneers and they are expensive but I am very satisfied with the results. Love your site, besides you are the Paleo crossfit version of Bey????

    I am 46 and I started Invisalign May 2015 I originally started with 29 sets of trays and by set 19 the dentist didn’t like the way those trays were moving my teeth so I had to get new molds done, new attachments on my teeth and 24 new sets of trays!! But they are looking good!! I never had braces growing up because my parents couldn’t afford them and I did it mainly now because my teeth were curving inwards and the roots were being exposed!! Ouch!! Much better after a year so far! I want to prepare you though you will either get a really dry mouth like your sucking on cotton balls all the time and constantly be guzzling water (me) OR the dentist said some people start to salivate excessively !!! No one told me this before so just so your aware!! ;0) Also insurance usually doesn’t cover Invisalign so mine was cash out of pocket also ! :0(

      i just paid for mine yesterday too, no fun, but totally worth it long term in my eyes!

  5. Angela says:

    What do you recommend for a good vanilla protein powder? Thanks for your feedback.

    1. juli says:

      i like progenex or mark sission’s primal fuel!

  6. Cassie says:

    Happy Cinco de Mayo! This protein smoothie looks delicious!

  7. AZ@...And a Dash of Cinnamon says:

    This definitely sounds more appealing and healthier than the sugar laden one I had a few days ago. Yuck, it was so sweet it took me forever to drink it, which I guess was a plus and def made me stop at one… but I would rather have had a healthy version!

  8. Heather says:

    Delicious, and had the unexpected side effect of making me think about rum and beaches at 8am. That makes for a much happier version of myself arriving to work, so thank you!

      hahaha glad to hear it, heather!
