This January, we’re focused on promoting honesty and transparency in wellness with our #iamwellandgood initiative. Instead of making epic resolutions, we’re inspired by the sweaty, messy, imperfect ways real people (like us!) live healthy, unfiltered lives on a daily basis. To celebrate, we asked incredible experts to share their super honest #iamwellandgood moments via Instagram takeovers all month long.
First up is Jordan Younger, AKA The Balanced Blonde, who’s become a leading voice for the need to be truthful in wellness blogging and on social media. Look no further than her recently published book, Breaking Vegan, to learn how she chose to be honest about the oft-unspoken struggles that come with the health blogging territory.
And today Younger gave us a no-holds-barred look into her life as a blogger—brown blob smoothies and all. Didn’t catch her Instagram takeover? Keep reading to check out her photo diary here, and don’t forget to follow @wellandgoodnyc on Instagram, so that you don’t miss a single, unfiltered moment.

Follow along as I show you how #iamwellandgood.
Other days I shove a granola bar in my face on-the-go (full disclosure), but when I have time to relax and enjoy a leisurely breakfast I go all out… Usually with a good friend sitting right across the table!
My low-key NorCal days are some of my very favorite, even though they may not compare in “coolness” to my fast-paced LA or NYC days packed full of photo shoots, meetings, and events. Taking long walks in my hometown with my mom (or even alone) to gather my thoughts are some of my happiest moments. It’s all about that balance.
This is my strawberry and cacao oat smoothie bowl—a recipe my family and friends beg me to make on the daily. What they don’t realize is that half the time the colors blend together to make the ugliest shade of brown you’ve ever seen! But today it turned out pretty :)
While I’m busy blogging about everything from wellness to fashion to the latest LA workout trend, I can guarantee you Huddy is sitting on my lap purring like a motorboat and/or being a goon and making me laugh hysterically!
We want YOU to participate in our #iamwellandgood campaign—find out how here. And then read an honest excerpt from Jordan Younger’s book about her difficult journey for more keeping-it-real inspiration.
