These Are a Few of My Favorite Things...

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things...

It may only be Halloween, but Christmas will be here before you know it (ugh… can time slow down a little bit, please??). So, in the spirit of the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d share a few of “My Favorite Things.”

These aren’t gift ideas (although you certainly could give some of them… I know I’d love to receive them!), but some of my favorite clean eating and non-toxic beauty products.

How Clean Eating Helped Heal My Body

How Clean Eating Helped Heal My Body

Before I ended up with adrenal fatigue in 2012, I was a pretty crappy eater.

Although, I actually probably had the "typical" American diet (at least at the time).  I ate a lot of pasta, grilled cheese, pizza, convenience foods like those bagged meals that you pour into a pan and heat, sugary drinks like sweet tea and lemonade (I actually didn't drink soda), coffee drinks full of sugar and other not-so-healthy stuff and of course, lots of sugary desserts and snacks.  (Did I mention sugar?)

How to De-Crapify Your Life

How to De-Crapify Your Life

Last night, I was chatting with my BFF about the biz and the new membership program I am building (which btw, you have a MAJOR say in... you can let me know what you want right here) and she said, "You basically help people cut all the crap out of their life.  You de-crapify their lives!"  We both laughed.  But, you know what?  That actually is my passion.

To help you de-crapify your life.

Why I'm Now Totally in Love with NOW Foods (+ a BIG giveaway for you!)

Why I'm Now Totally in Love with NOW Foods (+ a BIG giveaway for you!)

Recently, I had the opportunity to take my first ever, behind-the-scenes tour of a manufacturer.  And I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty darn excited.

Ever since I ended up with advanced adrenal fatigue back in 2014, I have been MUCH more conscious of the foods that I eat and the products that I use.  It was like a veil was lifted off of my eyes and I realized that it is up to ME to take care of my health.  No one else is going to do it for me.

Is Your Body Crying Out for Help?

Is Your Body Crying Out for Help?

They all told me I was crazy.

Well, not in those exact words.  But, by continually offering me anti-anxiety medication and anti-depressants, they were basically inferring that I was looney tunes.

Who you ask?  And what was I doing that was so off-the-wall?

5 Healthy Clean Eating Breakfasts for Non-Morning People

5 Healthy Clean Eating Breakfasts for Non-Morning People

Today's post is in response to a question that I get asked A LOT.

What in the world am I supposed to eat for breakfast now that I'm eating cleaner?

It's like all the sudden, now that donuts and fast food breakfast sandwiches are off-limits (which by the way, donuts aren't actually off-limits...), your mind comes to a screeching halt when it's time to feed yourself in the mornings.

I understand, I've been there.

Clean Eating: It's About Common Sense Not Extremism

Clean Eating:  It's About Common Sense Not Extremism

I don't typically comment on or write about anything controversial.  It's just not my personality type to engage in heated debates (in fact, I rather hate them) and most of the time, I purposely stay out of such things.

But, I did want to write a post about something that I read recently that ruffled my feathers a bit.  It was a blog post about how clean eating can be "dangerous" and "force" people to starve themselves and/or cause serious nutritional deficiencies or health issues.

5 Easy Ways to Simplify Your Life This Year

5 Easy Ways to Simplify Your Life This Year

Well, here we are halfway through February.

How are your New Year's resolutions going?

Don't worry.  Much like Planet Fitness, this is a no-judgement zone.  If you've already fallen off the wagon with your promise to exercise every day or your resolution to quit sugar cold turkey, it's okay.  In fact, I'm not really a big fan of New Year's resolutions anyway.

What I am a fan of, however, is life change.

Why You Need to Drink Kombucha Instead of Coffee

Why You Need to Drink Kombucha Instead of Coffee

Attention coffee and energy drink junkies!  There's a new drink in town and you're going to love it.

Kombucha.

By now, I'm sure you've heard this mysterious word before since it's beginning to become a bit of a trend these days.  But, I'll venture to guess that many of you still don't really know what it is or what all the fuss is about.
