Leigh & A Rainbow Of Smoothies
Leigh Weingus (Senior Editor of Yoga & Fitness at Mind Body Green) was the writer and manager of Elite Daily's wellness section. She was putting together a smoothie bowl book and asked me if I would help take photos. I didn't know much about Leigh and had never really worked with her but from what I knew, this girl was a powerhouse.
With our busy schedules, we sat down and made a plan to meet every Sunday to take photos of 40 different smoothie bowls.
Throughout the winter and spring months, I spent every Sunday in Leigh's LES kitchen, taking photos of smoothie bowls. It turns out Leigh and I had a lot more in common than I imagined. We shared a love for yoga, health food and meditation. We were basically granola bitches in crime. Leigh became one of my most trusted companions, and with all of the stress from my work I felt no worries in her presence.
You know that friend who eats ice cream with you to help you feel better when life isn't fair? Leigh was the friend who forced kale and greens into me during my roughest times so I wouldn't screw my mood and be miserable for the following week. She was always there to help me be my best self, and I am truly thankful for that.
The journey we spent creating this book is a memory I will always have, and a healthy reminder to treat yourself to the healthier sweets in life.
