Is Jaka Jamu the Jamu For You?

There is nothing that I love to see more than an absolute boss lady taking charge, running her business and not needing anyone’s help. Except, seeing two absolute boss ladies working together to create a company with room for both of their unique personalities and strengths and just supporting the crap out of each other in general.

I love Jaka Jamu because it’s delicious, trendy, super hydrating and run by two literally awesome power babes, Caitlin and Kristina.

Three Foods I Use to Forget Dairy

For me, food combining was where my journey to a cleaner diet started. I knew what the bad stuff for me was; S U G A R, dairy and gluten in order from the most evil to the least for me. So basically i went from including these things in my diet daily and haphazardly (working in kitchens and bakeries it was literally unavoidable) to only including one of these things at a time.

For instance, cupcakes were out of the picture, because they combined all three, but I could eat non dairy ice cream (Sugar only) and I eat cheese (Dairy only) and I’d have bread once in a while when it was available.

Shacking up with a celiac made it easy for me to say goodbye to the majority of bread, since, it’s not in the house I don’t see it. And the severity and immediate nature of my sugar reactions made it easier for me to take huge cuts out of my sugar intake. But dairy…

The Less Sweet Life – 3 Foods I Use Everyday to Shake Sugar

The road to a sugar free lifestyle is paved with setbacks, failures and obligatory birthday cakes, but it is 100% a road worth traveling. My journey to quit sugar started for me when I quit my job. A job that I loved by included too many cupcakes for breakfast and frosting taste tests.

In order for me to get to a place where I don’t consume any sugar, I need time and I need a lot of help. Each month I’m still noticing what feels like a significant improvement in the way I not only eat sugar, but also the way I feel regarding sugar. It’s been three years. For that, I have my own determination and three awesome products to thank.

Raise Your Bar.

I’m usually a huge fan of bars. I love the concept of a lot of nutrition being shrunken down into a little bitty baby package. I’m okay with the concept of a lot of filling calories being shrunken down into something that can fit in the palm of your hand. But. I am literally super not cool with a lot of garbage being shrunken down so you can basically just unhinge your jaw a little and swallow it in one go.

That’s a trap.

Did Millennials Kill the Mushroom Industry?

In the past two months I have begged information from multiple sources regarding the quality and efficacy of several brands of medicinal mushrooms. I have heard people with something to gain make claims and I have encouraged people with nothing to gain to talk over them.

Weird Kid Gift Guide – 2018

So my loves are getting older. Developing tastes and preferences. Little tiny bite sized personalities and let me tell you, these children are not your average.
All counted, I’ve got seven nieces and nephews. And not a single one of them is boring.

So I’ve compiled a gift guide, to ensure thorough spoiling during winter holidays or for birthdays because it’s important to know that even if the kids in your life are unpredictable, the look on their faces when they open their gifts shouldn’t be.

Bar Round Up – or… Square Off….

 I know that when people say ‘I get asked all day long…’ it sounds like an exaggeration. But I am being 100% real when I tell you that someday, all day long, people are asking me what my favorite something is. 

Protein powder. Bars. Juice. Berry. Vitamin D Supplement. Alt Grain. Honestly, the questions just keep on coming. 

And I love it. Because this girl is never without an opinion.

I’ll Only Do a Cleanse if I can Still Eat.

I felt pretty horrible two weeks ago, and it just so happened, my boyfriend was going out of town. Usually, a bit sad. But now! I felt like I was the master of my own recovery. So as soon as he left, I set out to buy myself all the ingredients I knew I would need to make

*sparkle* KITCHARI *sparkle*

I don’t consider myself to be a student of Ayurvedic Wisdom. In fact, I am unable to spell it without assistance. But I really like the idea of a nourishing cleanse. I did a 72 hour fast recently and it didn’t go well for me. I’m much more attracted to the idea of a slow moving, easy to digest, fiber and nutrient rich food constantly going through my body.
