Took a cue from my girl @shutthekaleup and made some CBD Bliss Balls to take with me on my trip to NYC! ✨✈️🍎 These ones made with coconut butter, almond meal, almond butter, dried apricots, collagen, tocos, CBD, mesquite cinnamon and cardamom. Rolled in coconut and crushed freeze-dried raspberries and blueberries. Running around like crazy the next day and a half to prep for my week in NYC! ❤️ #WuHaus

☕️🌿💕 @alison__wu ・・・ Talking all about cannabidiol aka CBD over on the blog (link in bio)! 💚🌿 For this piece, I enlisted the help of @anjalouise, the Founder + Editor-in-Chief of @broccoli_mag, to help break down what we know about CBD. Just to differentiate, CBD, unlike THC, does NOT get you high. Because cannabis is still illegal in most places, there hasn’t been much clinical research done on its benefits. Most of what is out there is based on ancecdotal evidence or the power of people sharing their stories. In that spirit, I’m sharing my experience with consistently taking CBD over the past 3 months. I’m also sharing 12 CBD products to try - everything from infused Vermont honey to a CBD face mask. If you’ve used CBD and found it to be helpful (or not), I’d love to hear from you!

TRUE CONFESSIONS 🧡🍑🧡 One of my New Years goals and an intention I carried over to the January new moon was to activate my glutes (aka my butt!). I work out regularly and specifically do exercises that target the backside. So it’s been really frustrating that whenever I’d squat or do bridge lifts, I felt everything but my butt. Knee pain, ankle mobility issues and thighs on fire. Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve seen major improvements. I’m now able to access my glutes in almost all the movements that target that area. Today I had a major realization. After many, many years of an extremely alignment-focused yoga practice, I realized that this obsession with perfect alignment was actually the thing that was holding me back from tapping into my backside. I figured out that instead of focusing on how the poses LOOK, I should be focusing on how they FEEL. And it’s totally true what they say, you actually have to tell your glutes to turn on! Anyways, it’s a small accomplishment in the general scheme of things, but it feels big. It’s empowering to have something I really put my focus on and set a goal around come to fruition in such a short time after working on it for years. #WuHaus

I've been seeing/hearing a lot about celery juice lately, thanks @scout_71 and @alison__wu !, and I thought I should probably join in. HERES WHY. -celery starves unwanted bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses in the body and flushes them out of the intestines and liver -helps good bacteria thrive -one of the most powerful ways to alkalize the gut -contains more than 60 trace minerals -full of enzymes to help your digestion -improves kidney function -restores the adrenals No wonder experts say its one of the greatest healing tonics of all time. Who wants to give this a try with me?! And if straight celery juice is too much for you, you can always add apple, mint and lemon to it. #theallredkitchen #celeryjuice #alkalize #wuhaus #drinkyourgreens #cyclesyncing #myflo #cheerstohealth #selfcare #selflove #whole30

CHOOSE LOVE EVERY SINGLE DAY ✨💗🌸🌈✨ The ways in which we love ourselves and others are the ways in which we all shine the brightest. What is hard is learning to love the shadows, the parts of ourselves that can be difficult to accept. Love is really about acceptance of truth. It’s about embracing the LIGHT and the SHADOWS. No one is perfect. No one will ever be perfect. We are all just moving through our lives trying to be and do the best we can. Be gentle and compassionate with yourself and others. Choose love today and every single day. It’s the best chance we all have at living the life we dream. Happy Vday bbs! #WuHaus

If you’re feeling under the weather, check out @ali@alison__wu top tips for staying healthy this winter! Our favorite is stocking up on Vitamin C🍊🍋🥝🥦 #Repost @alison__wu with @get_repost ・・・ Since I posted yesterday that this weekend was my first time getting sick in 4 years, I’ve been getting countless questions about how I strengthen my immune system and fight off sickness during the winter months. I have a whole blog post on the subject (just search immune boosting), but I thought I’d share my top 5 tips here: • SLEEP + WATER - These two cannot be stressed enough. So vital for maintaining immunity. I drink 3 liters of water a day. And personally need 8 hours of sleep a night. I think my 48-hour cold this weekend was largely due to the week prior of getting little sleep and working longer-than-usual days. • I limit refined sugar, dairy and alcohol consumption all year round, but especially in the winter months, as I believe these 3 things play a role in suppressing the immune system. I largely gave up dairy and refined sugar 4 years ago and have since only been sick once. • At the first sign of a sore throat, I drink a mix of 1-2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, 8 oz warm (not hot) water, 1/2 teaspoon raw honey and juice from 1/2 a lemon. I repeat this every morning that symptoms persist. • I bolster my immune system all year round by taking a variety of adaptogens. I take small quantities (1/2 teaspoon of 2-3 different adaptogens once a day) mixed with healthy fats (coconut butter/oil, ghee, nut milk) to increase absorption. Astragalus is great for the immune system, but if you are starting to feel a cold or the flu come on, stop taking it until you’re better, as it can prohibit your body from dispelling the sickness. • Vitamin C - I’m a major proponent of supplementing with Vitamin C in the fall and winter. When I feel any sort of cold coming on, I swear by Perque Potent C Guard (rounded 1/2 teaspoon in 8 oz of water after meals 2X a day). 💛 This is just what I’ve found works best for me based on experience. Every body is different, so I always encourage you to explore options to find what works for you. #WuHaus

All about olive oil! ✨💛⚡️🙌 One of my favorite foods on the planet, extra-virgin olive oil is a major player in most of my meals (like this one that’s dressed with just high-quality EVOO, lemon juice, salt and pepper). Below I’m sharing my top tips for choosing, storing and using olive oil. Stay tuned for my full pantry staples blog post that’s coming later today! #WuHaus • I don’t cook with olive oil because it has a lower smoke point than other oils. I prefer cooking with avocado or coconut oil. • Always buy extra virgin. It's the purest, least processed and most flavorful type. Drizzle it over cooked veggies and meats and raw salads. • Bottle should be dark glass or metal. Opaque so no light shines through. • Store away from heat and light. This is key to keeping it from going rancid. So don’t store olive oil right next to or near your stove. Ideally it is kept in the pantry away from sunlight and any heat source. • Check the harvest date and the best before date on the bottle. Unlike wine, olive oil does not get better with age. The fresher the olive oil, the better it tastes and the higher the health benefits. It should taste ripe, creamy, evolving and complex. • Olive oil goes rancid very quickly. Use within 4-6 weeks of opening. This is because the seal is broken allowing oxygen to enter the bottle. • Buy olive oil that comes from a single origin. Preferably a farm or collective, or at the very least one country. • You get what you pay for. Don’t expect to buy a $10 bottle of olive oil and have your mind blown. I recommend @wondervalley @cobramestateusa @luciniitalia @caoliveranch @gaeaoliveoil @frankies.pm

If you read the post on my blog yesterday, you will probably know that I take my daily walks as a “shake-up”. Cause I think A LOT and I re-arrange my thoughts. Happens the same while cooking... and while driving (not the best moment to get distracted though). My brain is like an ocean of thoughts 💭😅 and the waves keep coming! That’s also the reason why I meditate every morning, first to completely dive in them and then gently shake them off. Do you meditate? .

I’m happy to report that my skin has never been happier. Sure, I still get an occasional breakout and I notice fine lines that weren’t there in my 20s, but overall I’m happy with the way my skin feels on a daily basis. 💛 To enter this giveaway: • Leave a comment with your favorite skin care tip or ritual. • For an extra entry, tag a friend (or a few friends) in a separate comment. Winners will be announced on Monday 2/12 via Stories.

Read your weekly horoscope via the link in my bio, as *Wednesday* is the main day to navigate this week, with these two constellations muscling for space. 🌌▪️🌌 Aquarius and Scorpio are both fixed signs, and both have their own agenda to pursue – air sign Aqua has settled in its outlook and its thinking, while water sign Scorp is resolute in its emotional perspective. ♒️♏️ Determined, stubborn, call it what you will, these two signs are strong in their standing and somewhat immovable – just try challenging an Aquarius! Impossible! Wednesday delivers a wonderful opportunity to feel optimistic about our plans and our growth (moon-Jupiter⚪️🦂) but a different agenda has also presented itself (Aquarius stellium⚗️). Venus is aligned with Uranus inciting abrupt change⚡️, and the south node makes this an appropriate time to move on☄️. I'm seeing some rad makeovers presently (from Aries @cokes 🦄👌🏼); for those that dare, it could be time to switch it up!

For me, this month is all about taking care, showing myself and those around me some extra love. In my experience, when I shower myself with love, compassion and care, I’m better able to show love to other people in my life. A tricky part about this is learning when to say no. Setting boundaries honors and respects where you are at. Saying no allows time for yourself. You can’t be everything for everyone. Let that go, and try to be what you need for yourself, so you can be better for those you love. The other side to this is saying yes - to yourself, your goals, your passions, your wildest dreams. Saying yes to the work and the sacrifices that are required to make giant leaps in all the areas you desire. Start small. Try setting aside 20-minutes-a-day completely for YOU this month. Get clear on what you need in that moment and choose an activity or ritual that nurtures it. 💛 In partnership with @anthropologie #ABetterYou #WuHaus

I’m also sharing 12 CBD products to try - everything from infused Vermont honey to a CBD face mask. If you’ve used CBD and found it to be helpful (or not), I’d love to hear from you!

Home is where the freakin’ bowl is! 🤤🥗🏡 SO happy to be back in Portland after an exhausting-yet-rewarding week of working down in Houston. To be honest, after I’m done eating this, I’m taking the rest of the day off to sit on the sofa and watch a movie. It’s just what I need right now. Complete and total veg out. ✌🏼 On a personal note, I’m completely floored by how many of you have written me personal emails and DMs in response to my first newsletter I sent out a couple hours ago. Reading through them brought tears to my eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and for letting me be vulnerable with you. I’m excited to be using this newsletter as a way to share more about myself and to talk about deeper issues that we all face. 💛 #WuHaus

#tbt to a beautiful event with @stemsandco last month. Have you checked out their Instagram? Their floral arrangements are unreal. Also so are these meatballs.

Loving on these purple sweet potato ‘crostini’ with avo mash, shredded roasted chicken, mixed chicory, radish and preserved lemon. Bonus: I can even make them in my makeshift kitchen without an oven during our remodel. 💯👌🏼 Just toast the sweet potato rounds in the toaster for about 18 minutes or until crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I folded some of my favorite dukkah (recipe on the blog) into the avo mash for an extra 💥! #WuHaus

Growing up I was not a huge fan of tofu but once I learned HOW to cook tofu and how it can take on amazing flavors and roast up crispy and delicious, I was hooked! For all you haters, have you given tofu another chance?
