#WorkItWednesday: Staying Healthy With Phenix!


This week for #WorkItWednesday, we are turning the reigns over to one of our best models, Phenix, for some key words of wisdom!  As a model who is constantly on the go, she has trained her body and mind to consistently strive towards healthiness. Let's hear what amazing tips she has in store for us:

Eating healthy on-the-go is something a lot of people, even models, struggle with. Life gets pretty hectic and you might find it tempting to head to the nearest drive thru. Instead, I'd like to show you an alternative that is easy, delicious, and won't take much prep time. All of my recipes are vegetarian with vegan-optional. In everything I cook, I always want it to be in its rawest form. By eating raw ingredients, straight from nature, our bodies can use every ounce of it more efficiently. Eating processed foods containing preservatives can harm your body in many ways and make you tired quicker. Processed foods are just a bunch of "fillers" usually leaving you hungry and dissatisfied. So here are a few of my favorite recipes that are easy to prepare take on the road with you. As models, we are constantly being pulled in every direction and usually with no warning time on where you might need to go next. Keep some of these recipes on hand and let these foods be fuel for your temple. ❤️ 

"Let medicine be thy food, and food be thy medicine."-Hippocrates

Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients:
3 tablespoons of chia seeds
6-5 ounces of almond milk
Fruits, nuts, or sweetener

Procedure:
Pour the almond milk in a small put and place on the stove top for approximately 2 minutes until thoroughly warmed. Next, pour the warm almond milk into your bowl or cup of choice and immediately stir in your chia seeds. Next, mix the chia seeds until they are fully submerged and not floating on top of the milk. Once it is thoroughly mixed, place the dish in the refrigerator. Let the mixture cool for about 45 minutes allowing the pudding consistency to form. After it is cooled, you can add any type of fruits, granola, or sweetener of your choice. Be creative with this recipe and have fun!

Baked Apple Cinnamon Apple Crisps

Ingredients/Equipment:
Mandolin slicer (You can purchase this online or in stores for $20 or less.)
Baking tray
2-4 red or green apples
Cinnamon
Optional sweetener (organic coconut sugar is a great substitute!)

Procedure:
Preheat the oven to 225F degrees. Slice your apples using the mandolin slicer. You can choose to core the apple first, or leave the core in the apple like pictured above. Once completed, line the baking tray with baking paper. Place the apple slices evenly on the paper. Be sure to not let any slices overlap ech other. Next, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar lightly over the top.  Place the tray of apples in the oven for approximately 50 minutes. After the first 50 minutes, turn them over, season the opposite side, and let them bake for another 50 minutes. Finally, once they finish baking, turn off the oven and crack the door. Let the relax in there for another 10 minutes or so to get that crisp texture. After this, take them out and devour them! If you want them more crispy, allow them to cool longer or place them in the warm oven for a few more minutes.

Granola Bars

Ingredients/Equipment:
4 cups of oats
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of honey or agave nectar
1/2 brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of salt
1/4 cup of coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, sliced almonds, raw cacao nibs, flax seeds, and cranberries (all optional and to your choosing)
Blender or food processor
Two 8" x 13" baking trays

Procedure:
Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Take the brown sugar, honey, and oil and place in a small pot. Heat and constantly stir the mixture until the sugar is melted. Take off of the heat and set the bowl aside. Take all of your optional nuts and seeds and pour into a blender or food processor. Pulse until they are finely ground. Do not leave the nuts in the blender too long or you will end up with a paste. Now, take all of ingredients and combine into a large bowl. Stir thoroughly. Now, get the baking tray and line it with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray. Spread the mixture evenly on top of the foil. Next, take another tray and spray the bottom of it. Use this second tray to press firmly down on the mixture in the baking tray. Place the trays in the oven for 35 minutes. Once baked, take out and let the granola cool for 5 minutes. Afterwards, use a baking knife or large spatula to cut the bars into desired shape. Once they are cut, let cool for another 15 minutes. Enjoy these nutritious treats perfect for on the go!

Met Gala 2014

If you missed one of the biggest fashion events of the year last night, don't fret. We've got your MET coverage right here! This year's theme was "White Tie & Diamonds" and the glitterati flocked to New York to show off their best.

We are loving our Page Parkes alum on the red carpet! Amber Heard looked elegant in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture alongside her dapper fiance Johnny Depp, who was wearing Ralph Lauren. Actress Charlize Theron stunned in a fitted, bi-color Dior Haute Couture. Both ladies were elegant and sophisticated!



With "High Society" being the dress code, a few of the ladies took the opportunity to transform themselves into Disney-like princesses for the evening. Zac Posen was definitely a go-to designer for this occasion. Volume was truly a priority--the bigger the better!
