Happy Sunday! Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend. Today, I’m excited to continue my new fall series on the importance of a good morning routine. I’ve loved getting in contact with some of my favorite bloggers/ health influencers and seeing just how different each person prefers to start their day.
Laurel Gallucci is a blogger, cookbook author, beautiful mama, and the creative force behind Sweet Laurel Bakery, a line of delicious grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free baked goods. I first came across her Instagram, which is filled with pics of her decadent baked treats. And when I found out they were all made from clean, wholesome ingredients..? I was hooked.
When Laurel was diagnosed with an aggressive autoimmune disorder, she was put on a strict diet that quickly eliminated some of her favorite life indulgences. A baker at heart, she knew she could find a way to recreate these treats, but instead, fill them with things that nourish our bodies, rather than punish them. In result, Sweet Laurel Bakery was created to share her creations with the world!
1.) What time is your alarm set?
-“When my baby Nico wakes up, usually around 5 am.”
2.) Any rituals to start your day?
-“After cuddles with my baby and husband, I slowly get out of bed.”
3.) Coffee, tea, matcha…?
-“I’ve been doing swiss water process decaf coffee with collagen and coconut milk. It is my all time fave at the moment!”
4.) What’s your favorite breakfast at the moment?
-“Love a green smoothie with creamy coconut milk any day of the week!”
5.) Morning or afternoon workout? If morning, what is your typical routine?
-“My favorite is a walk with my baby, but my day does not always allow that. A barre or yoga class is a close second. If I don’t work out in the morning, we usually take a family walk after or before dinner.”
6.) Beauty routine?
-“Nucifera is my favorite beauty balm! I use it under the eyes and for moisturizing regularly.”
7.) Any other must-do parts of your morning…
-“Getting a bit of sun on my face. It wakes me up and gives me energy.”
