Mondays can bring all sorts of challenges. First zumba classes (insert sound-clip of my creaking bones here), back to back meetings, daycare drop offs, dinner on the run – the list goes on. If you’ve had a manic Monday and are just now settling in for the night, look below for a quick dinner option. If your kids are home for the summer and causing mayhem, click on the link for summer fun. Summer also brings another unique challenge that looks a lot like a yellow polka dot bikini…
Bathing suit shopping is the bane of my existence because let’s face it, nobody looks awesome in the glaring light of a changing room and the options are endless.

The weeks, they just keep rolling. Cheers to another Monday conquered! Break up the monotony of your daily routine by spending a few moments here. There’s plenty to see and consider – especially if you’re into fashion with a cause.
If you’ve had trouble staving off the sugar cravings lately, give healthy snacking a try! It happens to the best of us – donuts in the break room, that friendly neighborhood baker with extra time on her hands…baked goods are yummy but such a frenemy when you’re trying to cut the chemicals and fight for the fresh. Healthy meals are similarly tricky. But look below for recipes and DIY that will give you a reason to celebrate Monday. Valuing the little things in life is essential to having a positive outlook – so tell us, what are you thankful for today? #Cayisa and let us know!
Happy Monday Cayisa readers! I hope you’re tackling Monday in style (somebody has to). If you’re just here for the recipes, scroll on down for a meatless menu that should make you and your family happy. If you’re interested in healthful living, consider visiting Food Babe’s website to watch this video, which supports wiser shopping habits.

Ever find that the weeks leading up to summer are far more stressful than you thought possible?
The world has a way of speeding up before it slows down, and if that’s where you find yourself today, keep reading for DIY life savers. Why not set aside an afternoon this weekend to pause and take care of yourself? We ask so much of our bodies and we’re not always kind to them in return! Unfortunately, the results of our negligence are often quite uncomfortable. Indigestion, acne, cracked skin, sore throats – they all throw us off course from time to time, especially when we’re stressed or living life on the go!
Peppermint oil and/or tea will quickly calm you down if you’re having one of those days. Mint tea is usually caffeine free and relieves nausea and indigestion. Make yourself a cup before bedtime, open a good book, and prepare for sleep the right way! Have a cup or two during the day to give yourself some extra Vitamin B or to gain control over your appetite.
Adding peppermint oils to your bathwater can soothe rashes and help with decongesting sniffly sinuses.
This chocolate peppermint smoothie is packed with super foods that will recharge your system, but the gist of it is peppermint extract, cocao, and coconut milk – what’s not to love? In a rush? Prep this the night before and bring it on your morning commute!
Here’s a friendly reminder to keep drinking tea – peppermint really will work wonders for your body – as well as a recipe for homemade cough drops!
Thanks for checking in – be sure to #Cayisa when you’re sporting our arm candy and come back on Monday for some healthy inspiration!
