Sharing a roundup of my favorite healthy restaurants in Tucson.

Hey friends! How’s the week going? I hope you’re having an amazing one. Today is packed with calls and appointments, but I’m looking forward to a long walk with Maisey to break up the computer time. What do you have going on?

For today’s post, I wanted to share a roundup of some of my favorite healthy Tucson restaurants! We love going out to eat, but many restaurants use flavorful yet undesirable ingredients, especially when it comes to oils/fats. Thankfully, we have plenty of places in Tucson where you can enjoy nourishing and delicious meals. For this post, “healthy” is defined as a restaurant that focuses on plant-based ingredients from the earth, with many of the items made in house with fresh ingredients, and accommodate various dietary requirements, like vegan and gluten-free options.

The best part about this post is that I’m going to have to update it in a year or so, because Tucson is FINALLY getting a Flower Child and a True Food Kitchen. BLESS IT. I’ve been waiting my whole life for this. Now if we could just get a Seasons 52, I’ll lose my mind.

Alas, here is my list of favorite healthy restaurants in Tucson (for now!).

20 Healthy Restaurants in Tucson

1) Tumerico

This is probably my #1 choice on this entire list. (The rest of the options are in no particular order.) They make everything in house, including the tortillas and salsas, and the menu changes daily. It’s a vegetarian Mexican spot with lots of vegan options. The Frida Kahlo plate is my very favorite, but everything is amazing. You won’t regret it… and now I’m craving it after writing this post. It’s located in the Sam Hughes area, which is in central Tucson.

2) Pure Poke and Prep

This is our favorite spot for poke in Tucson. We have it almost weekly! You go through it Chipotle-style and add whatever protein, base, and toppings you’d like. My go-to order is 1/2 salad greens, 1/2 white rice, salmon, spicy crab, edamame, avocado, furikake, broccoli, carrots, green onions, seaweed salad, lots of wasabi and ginger. (I add my own Tamari at home.) The girls go crazy for it, too, which makes it the perfect grab and go lunch or dinner.

3) Lovin’ Spoonfuls

Lovin’ Spoonfuls is a Tucson classic and for a great reason. The food is so delicious and fresh, and the desserts… you have to order at least one! This is where we get my bday cake every year �

Hi friends! How’s the week treating you? I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I’m off to get some blood work done for InsideTracker and filming videos all day. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Today, the gift guide fun continues with holiday gifts and under $50 faves. I know we all have a frenzy of holiday parties on the horizon, and for hostess gifts, I try to switch things up from the usual flowers or bottles of wine. (As someone who loves to host, these things are always appreciated and lovely, I just try to think of something a little different when I attend parties.)

Here are some of the fun hostess gifts I’ve found, plus some under $50 gift ideas if you’re searching for a smaller gift for a friend or family member.

Homemade Sea Salt Hair Spray

Sharing a recipe for homemade sea salt hair spray you can make on the cheap (with better ingredients) and also add as a little gift or stocking stuffer.

Hi friends! How’s the week going so far? I’m looking forward to lunch with a friend and catching a hot yoga class later this evening.

For today’s post, I wanted to share a super fun and easy beauty DIY: sea salt hair spray! You guys may be familiar with sea salt spray, as it’s a great way to add beachy waves and texture to your hair. It can be used on wet or dry hair, and makes you feel like you spent the day at the beach. Store-bought sea salt sprays can cost a fortune (around $40 per bottle), so making your own is an easy way to save some money. Also, you can customize the ingredients according to your hair type and preference!

Today, I’m sharing a DIY sea salt spray recipe you can do at home. Pin this for the next time you’re looking for a quick and easy hair DIY.

Homemade Sea Salt Hair Spray

What Does Sea Salt Hair Spray Do For Hair?

My #1 fave use for sea salt spray is to create waves and add beachy texture. It also helps absorb excess oil. It enhances waves and curls and creates volume if your hair is feeling a little blah or like it needs a boost. You can also add some nourishing components, like argan oil and coconut oil for hair health.

What you will need:

1 tablespoon sea salt (Redmond’s real salt is my fave)

2 teaspoons argan oil (you can also use coconut oil)

10 oz hot water

Optional: 4-6 drops essential oil. I used lavender but you can also use any hair-friendly oils, like rosemary, rose absolute, lemon, or tea tree. I order all of our essential oils from Thrive Market and also love NOW Foods (you can use FITNESSISTA for 20% off).

A glass spray bottle

How To Make Your Own Sea Salt Spray

Step 1

Add the sea salt to a bowl and pour the hot water on top. Whisk to fully dissolve the sea salt.

Step 2

Add in the argan oil and essential oil, and continue to whisk.

Step 3

Pour into your glass spray bottle.

Step 4

Give it a shake and add a few sprays to your hair as you *scrunch* for some extra texture and volume. Store in a cabinet for up to 3 months.

weekend recap

Hi friends! Happy Monday! How was the weekend? I hope you had an amazing one. It felt so good to be back at home and have a bit of a *normal* weekend. We’ve had so many fun events and activities lately, my body was just ready for some downtime and a bit of a reset.

Friday evening after the mastermind, the Pilot and the girls picked me up and we went straight to my cousin’s wedding in Phoenix.

They had a gorgeous ceremony and reception at the Big Tin Cotton Gin with Mexican food, great music, and a pizookie truck for dessert. 

(Dress is here)

Saturday was my bday, and it was the perfect day. We went to P’s soccer game, and then I took the best nap. I woke up to Saffron Indian food, the BEST cake from Lovin’ Spoonfuls (gf confetti with chocolate frosting), and the fam came over for cake.

Afterwards, madre and nana watched the girls while the Pilot and I went to Dusk Music Festival with friends.
