Why Après?

Why Après?

January 23, 2019 1 Comment

Après was inspired by one of my favorite parts of the daily routine -- the post workout moment.  It's that wonderful feeling of confidence, a revving metabolism, and extra self-love. It's a moment that can only be earned by getting myself to class and pushing my body to new levels. If I had to describe it in one word, I'd call it a "glow."

Commit to give back to your body in 2019

December 21, 2018 6 Comments

The New Year presents such a powerful opportunity for setting new goals and intentions. Following the revelry and indulging nature of the holidays, I am motivated and ready to get clear on what I personally want out of the year to come. Coming off weeks of focusing on everyone but myself (gift giving, massive amounts of cooking, cleaning and normally little to no exercise), it's the jumpstart I need to return to giving back to my body and prioritizing me. I have in the past, however, gone too far and demanded too much of myself in setting lofty goals and expectations.

We're going to get straight to the point. Developing new flavors of Après is hard AF. The drink has a complex set of ingredients (hello 4 types of organic plant protein + organic virgin coconut oil + organic coconut water) and it's shelf stable (doesn't need to be refrigerated). Given these complexities, there are a lot of steps that we need to go through to get to our final, yummy drink.
