Tia is one of our number one #glowgirls. She loves a good sweat, cooks delicious clean food, and lives for her adorable son. Everything this gorgeous lady does is accompanied by the warmest smile and best attitude.
We first met Tia Mowry at SoulCycle, where she caught eye of our Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe. Having been diagnosed with some food allergies upon pregnancy, Tia is always on the lookout for healthful, gluten-free, and dairy-free recipes, and the pizza recipe was able to do just the trick! Since then she's made a few of our healthful recipes and incorporated some of our #glowtips into her busy lifestyle.
When Tia isn't filming her hit show Instant Mom, she's either taking care of her heartbreakingly cute son Cree, working on her fitness, or cooking up a storm in her home kitchen. She recently worked with designers Tessa Johnson & Carlos Antillon to create a beautiful landscape and herb garden in her backyard, where she started growing her own organic herbs and vegetables... doesn't get more #glowy than this, people!
Tia showed us around her lovely backyard, where we checked out her mad garden skillz and chatted over kombuchas and green juice about her favorite products, workouts and glowspots around LA. What we love most about Tia is how real she is and how naturally the good vibes flow from her-- she has an innate positivity that makes you feel good just by being in her presence!
