    We grew up watching Tia Mowry and her sister Tamera live it up on Sister, Sister – and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t take some ’90s style cues from this dynamic duo. Tia might be all grown up now, but we’re still taking pointers from this star’s lifestyle skills. As host of Tia Mowry at Home on the Cooking Channel and star of TV Land’s Instant Mom (which comes back for a third season this Saturday!), Tia is still capturing our attention on screen and proving an incredible example of how to stay happy and balanced at home.

    We love Tia’s attitude toward wellness. Read through a few of her personal favorites and top tips below, including our very own favorite green juice (Pressed Juicery’s Greens 5) and a piece of mom-in-the-know gear we’re giving away to one lucky mama! Enter our Ultimate Wellness Mama Giveaway for a chance to win a stroller with major street cred from Orbit Baby filled to the brim with Pressed Juicery juices!

    Can’t live without my:

    Family! They are my everything!

    Daily breakfast:

    Eggs and avocado! Easy and healthy!

    My food philosophy in one sentence:

    You truly are what you eat. Your health and mental state stems from what you eat!

    Favorite moment in each day:

    Receiving morning kisses from my husband and son!

    Best “cheater’s” workout tip as a mom:

    Join in on the dance party! Cree loves to dance, so while he’s dancing and singing, I’ll just join in! Being silly can help with losing those calories!

    Once a week for my health:

    I love doing a juice cleanse. For the entire day I will only drink juices, giving my digestion a rest! It leaves me feeling rejuvenated.

    Best quick snack option:

    Chips and salsa with guacamole! Easy and delish!

    My go-to juice or smoothie:

    Pressed Juicery Greens 5.

    At least once a week I cook…

    Spaghetti and meatballs! It’s a family favorite!

    If I could give just one piece of health advice it would be...

    Drink water! Hydrate!

    Ingredient in products I always avoid:

    High-fructose corn syrup.

    Book I love for healthy moms:

    Fave baby gear:

    Natives! These are the best shoes for toddlers. Easy to put on and clean! Plus they come in all different colors!

    Go-to health resource:

    WebMD.

    Crazy health idea that actually works:

    Acupuncture and cupping!!!

    5 things always in my medicine cabinet:

    Oil of oregano, vitamin C, vitamin D, hand sanitizer and probiotics.

    Non-negotiable:

    My integrity and character.

    Simplest way to improve health:

    Try and get 6 to 8 hours of sleep!!

    Fave healthy me-time:

    Yoga and meditation.

    My current mantra:

    Carpe diem.

    4. I grew up watching Tia & Tamara. Sister sister was one of the best 90’s kid shows! My daughter cracks up every time I show her the episode where they find out they are twins. Gets me every time. Good luck to everyone on this awesome giveaway!
