Okay, so we know we gotta eat healthy. But it's hard on the go- right? When you're navigating your busy day it's much easier to grab something from a coffee shop or quickie mart. It's done and ready to go, no waiting.  I totally get that! While those fill our hangry bodies, we pay the price later.  That gassy belly, bloat, the crash that gets you nodding off at your keyboard and of course our overall health. There's simply nothing good in most quick grab foods. You work hard for your body and deserve great stuff! Stuff that keeps you doing more, so you can be better. Ya' know what does that? High quality vegetables, proteins and healthy fats. That's why I got super excited when I found Evergreens. Evergreens is a super quick salad bar chain located in Seattle.

If you're not in Seattle, don't get bummed!!

Now that you have a great resource, ya gotta check out this episode! Evergreens was started by two dudes who were living crazy busy lives in New York, looking to stay healthy daily. They know that efficiency is everything to high performers. That's why they've done everything they can to speed up service while giving you amazing quality foods. Look at these beautiful bowls!   In fact I thought you'd love to hear from the owner himself, so I got him to join me on this podcast episode of Burn Brighter.     Evergreens Owner, Todd Fishman fills you in on

"I mean, I am BUSY!" I heard this from at least 20 different clients last week. And they are right! They are authors, professors, public speakers, parents, community leaders... basically great people doing kick ass stuff daily. Of course all that ass kicking work, means sometimes they forget about themselves. That's why I yelled "YESS!" at my iPhone (startling the couple next to me at my favorite coffee shop) Buried in Instagram, I had just found the answer to my clients' (and my own) biggest daily struggle. How to get healthy foods in their busy bodies, without slowing them down. It's called mēle. It's pronounced MEAL and basically it's a super healthy meal on the go. It's so on the go, you don't need to sit down, use utensils or even chew. It's a meal replacement shake chock full of all the great stuff humans need to stay healthy, especially High Performing, Uber Busy Humans! As a Nutrition Specialist, Health Coach and Personal Trainer I'd love it if we could all sit down to a beautiful salmon and veg scramble after our morning workout OR take a leisurely lunch at the park with an awesome salad brimming with beets, arugula, spinach, avocado and turkey. But let's get real! That's sooo not gonna happen. You've got stuff to do, lots of it!  Work, deadlines, errands, sprint to school pick up, walk the dog, pay the bills, get that thing fixed on your car, return those emails, make that flight, show up for tonight's event, find clean underwear and socks for tomorrow, buy laundry detergent- screw that just buy new socks and underwear... you don't have time to do laundry! So how the heck do you get those healthy meals in you, without totally falling behind in your day. That's the exact problem this busy New York Couple struggled with AND found a jaw dropping solution; mēle THE portable meal with all the healthy stuff you need without packing in the scary stuff that screws up your health. Say hello to Lauren and Adam Benbassat. Two people who know what it's like to maybe grab breakfast at your coffee stop, skip lunch (to meet that deadline ,  fit in a workout (if you're lucky) then totally crash and burn with hangry cravings at the end of the day. They set out to solve this. After hundreds of kitchen experiments and some pretty crazy combinations they found the answer. Try not to shout "YESS!" at your smart phone as you hear all about their brilliant creation, mēle

I can't wait for you to hear

  • Why you can totally trust their healthy ingredients
  • How mēle fills you up and boosts mental focus
  • How you get primo quality protein,veg & healthy fats (hello antioxidants & Omega 3's) in less than a minute
  • Why you can say sayonara to coffee shop pastries and "meh" lunches that waste time and energy.
  • How to take this anywhere with you. Travel, gym bag, conferences. No refrigeration required.
  • How Adam and Lauren use their powers for good. High Five to giving back to hungry people in need.
  • How you can get way more done, stay healthy and look fabulous:)
So, if you're juggling more fires than Kerry Washington (Scandal)  talking fast and making people walk with you just to get in a conversation. Stop the madness! Let's face it no one looks that good while living off wine and popcorn. Just plug in your headphones, hit play and get the goods.

  1. Hold ourselves over for at least 4 hours
  2. Get in those super powerful nutrients to stay on top of our game
  3. Feel good.. no gas or wanting to take a nap after
  4. Feed our hungry muscles
  5. Actually enjoy it - so we keep eating them and enjoy our salad moments.
