I start out with H2O with 1/2 lemon, tbsp of pure Maple syrup, and cayenne…(don’t laugh the cayenne kind of has a caffeine kick for me)…then I move on to a fresh beet/carrot/apple/parsley juice….and I eventually graduate to a 1/2 papaya or a banana. The self-flagellation begins shortly afterward…) If I know the day is going to be long, I’ll start out with a fresh fruit and berry smoothie.
ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING?
WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING?
Definitely the sun…i do well there, in the sun. (um it’s pouring right now;) An hour long Vinyasa yoga session fills my head with ideas too. Also, I come up with the best beats/ melodies while on a good run. My best song writing comes from running. And of course sitting at a cafe and people watching inspires me.

I have been so lucky to meet Benny in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. She is a gem. Love her voice and her personality. If you have the chance to see one of her performances don’t think twice!
Her fresh fruit&berry smoothie is just delicious! She really is an artist in everything she does with a lot of dedication…from the smoothies to performing!
