If you’ve been in The Skinny Confidential community for a while, you know that I’m all about that light, movement & hydration in the morning. Heavy emphasis on MOVEMENT.
Walking outside by yourself with a podcast (btw, these white headphones are a must), or with a friend (babies & strollers totally count), or using a treadmill at home or at the gym, MOVEMENT IS KEY. And what’s a hot girl walk without an ice cold, HEALTHY, pink drink?
TA-DA !! Introducing Lauryn Bosstick’s PINK DRINK now at Erewhon. And duh, it’s not only delicious, but it’s full of beauty benefits & comes with a cute little coffee sleeve to save your hands from condensation. LOL, see? We’re always thinking of the pain points.
Here’s what I like to do: I wake up, open the shades, drink a lemon water maybe with some ginger or fresh mint thrown in (I like to mix it up), then I ice roll with the HOT MESS while I sip spa water (outside in the shade, but in the sun- you get it) & plan out my day. Then I get dressed (or not, big fan of a pajama walk with eye masks on), then I get on my treadmill. I’ll put on a podcast or answer some emails & set my positive intentions for the day while I MOVE my body.
Oh, & sometimes I trade in the treadmill for a walk outside, but either way, I do some kind of movement. And if the morning gets away from you, no sweat. You can MOVE any time of day. The point is, you’re getting beauty benefits while you work, clean the house, drive, fold laundry. Sip it while you mask, read a book, journal – it’s called habit-stacking, duh.
Since I’m in LA right now, it’s a no brainer to do a little Postmates order from Erewhon. Whatever your morning routines & rituals are, the PINK DRINK fits into it seamlessly & efficiently.
Ok ok, so what’s in the drink? We made sure it only had healthy, good for you ingredients, of course with just all the beauty & skin benefits.
LAURYN BOSSTICK’S PINK DRINK INGREDIENTS:
♡ Erewhon’s housemade, sprouted raw almond milk
JUST SO GOOD. Keeps things smooth, creamy & dairy-free. Sprouted almond milk is THE MOVE because it’s way better for your digestive system. The soaking process for Erewhon’s sprouted almond milk also helps the body use their own enzymes more effectively, which means you absorb nutrients better.
♡ Primal Kitchen’s vanilla coconut collagen
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body, accounting for about a third of its protein composition. Collagen production naturally declines with age. So like, we gotta get it in. Collagen keeps things nice & plump in your skin, but is also good for muscle, joint, hair & nail health. Not to mention it helps fight inflammation which we’re all about.
Primal Kitchen is a brand I’ve been a fan of for a long time. Love their ketchup, so good for kids since it’s very low in sugar. All of their products are made with high-quality ingredients. Think plant-based, healthy fats, no artificial sweeteners, no dairy & REAL ingredients.
Their vanilla coconut collagen is made with creamy coconut milk powder and dreamy vanilla extract, this Keto Certified and Paleo Friendly drink mix is as delicious as it is nourishing.
♡ Eidon’s liquid silica
Silica helps your body produce its own collagen for healthy hair, skin, nails, teeth and bones. This essential mineral element also helps our body internally by supporting gastrointestinal health, strong cartilage and joint function. I’ve been really paying attention to adding more trace minerals to my diet so I love that we added this into the PINK DRINK.
Eidon Ionic Minerals objective is to achieve an optimal mineral balance. The mineral and gaseous elements are the basis of all life as we know it. Additionally, minerals catalyze every enzyme reaction in every cell.Optimal cellular function is essential for optimal tissue and organ functioning. When this occurs, one’s probability of achieving a state of being “in balance” and “at ease” is greatly enhanced.
♡ Cocojune’s vanilla camomile yogurt
This yogurt tastes so good & is a fab probiotic. It’s a cultured coconut yogurt that helps balance good bacteria in the gut. Probiotics can also help with allergies, skin conditions, may help our heart health & our moods. Not to mention they can get things moving if you know what I mean ::wink wink::
I love Cocojune because they’re free from GMOs and toxic pesticides. They’re also passionate about their sustainability, with a net-zero plastic footprint, they’re continuously working on better packaging and better practices for our earth.
♡ Akasha’s sea moss
Oh, so you want a pink drink topped with gold? We got you. This sea moss is a gold gel that is just packed with benefits:
+ Digestive support:
Sea moss is high in fiber and soothes inflamed tissues within the intestinal tract.
+ Thyroid Health:
Sea moss gel helps balance thyroid hormones and supports healthy thyroid function since it contains a great source of iodine
+ Immune Boosting:
Sea moss is high in immune boosting nutrients like iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. The prebiotic effects can improve the gut microbiome and lead to heightened immunity. Sea moss contains anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties.
+ Skin Health:
Sea moss gel contains magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin K, and omega-3 fatty acids, which help to hydrate and promote healthy skin. The skin can absorb the vitamins and minerals. It is also antimicrobial and anti inflammatory, which means it can help with skin issues like acne. It can be used topically and internally. The mucilage properties of sea moss are excellent for strengthening connective tissues and supporting joint health.
Akasha was founded by Alex and Anna, two wellness fanatics who wanted to bring some seriously nutrient-dense superfoods to the market.
To finish it off, it’s topped with Erewhon’s housemade coconut & almond cold foam & housemade strawberry compote. To keep things pretty, of course.
And voilà, you have yourself an ICY, pink, healthy, skin-boosting beauty drink.
The PINK DRINK will be available for one month at all Erewhon locations (until October 15). So like, take your hot girl walk on the road, stroll to Erewhon for your PINK DRINK, then take the long way home while listening to your favorite podcast & dream about the PINK BALLS massage & ice roll you’re about to have.
Be sure to remember your sheet mask, huge sunglasses, obnoxious visor.
Oh, and you should know that part of the proceeds got to I Stand With My Pack, a charity that I’m very passionate about. For more on ISWMP check out the founder’s podcast episode on HIM & HER & blog post.
