As I am about to celebrate another birthday I have to admit that I think I am living my best life and I am healthier now than I was 17 years ago after the birth of my second child. I feel like with age comes so much more wisdom about letting go of things you can’t change and truly taking charge of stuff that you can have control over.
I have become acutely aware that my body will only continue to be here for me if I treat it with reverence. And like so many other women I know– I’ve realized that time management and putting myself on my long list of things to do is best for my body and health.
With that said I love sharing recipes and brands who are helping me live my best life and one of those is limoneira!

Next up, try this perfect make-ahead-of-time option that will keep for several days in the refrigerator.
- ½ cup parsley
- ½ cup cilantro
- 2 zucchini
- 1 Limoneira lemon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Directions: If a spiralizer is on hand, process the zucchini through one. If one is not available, using a julienning technique on the zucchini will work. Add lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil to “noodles” in a bowl. Top with parsley and mix together. Garnish with lemon slices and serve – or, put it in the refrigerator to keep for later!
Hot Tip: Create a meal plan – blogger and meal planner, Natasha Red, recommends making a meal plan ahead of time to cut down on energy spent in the kitchen.Eat seasonally, and use a recipe rotation. Natasha chooses 16 recipes that her family looks forward to eating every season – spring, summer, fall, winter. This cuts down on meal planning times to about 20 minutes by avoiding having to reinvent the wheel every week. Simply look at the menu plan for that season, and choose the meals for the week from it.
