The One Breakfast Hack That Can Transform Your Morning

You’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day… and it really can set the tone for not only how much you get done that day… but also your mood, your energy, and your metabolism.

One of the biggest problems I see is that people are so busy, they don’t have time to start their day the right way… they grab a quick breakfast that is loaded with carbs.

Maybe it’s because of our busy lifestyles but breakfast tends to become “morning dessert”. Think about the typical hotel “continental” breakfast, or what many of us tend to grab in the morning from Starbucks on the way to work: read more

Why is Grassfed Butter Good for You?

As you may can imagine… given the title of this blog… We like grassfed butter and we cannot lie, haha.

But what the heck is it and WHY is it good for you???

What is Grassfed Butter?

Cow are supposed to be eating grass, Right? Sadly this shouldn’t be so usual… but we see that many conventional dairy products come from cows who are given feed other than their preferred diet of grass. You can read more about that in the Omnivore’s Dilemma  read more

5 Things To Do TODAY for Younger Looking Skin

I know, I know… I should have listened to my grandmother when she told me to start taking care of my skin at 13…

But here I am at 32, haha. I’m late the the party.

I didn’t really start taking care of my skin… and then I turned 30 and I realized I was starting to look OLD O.o

So here are FIVE things I have learned in the past two years that helps me Turn Back the Clock and Look Younger!

Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize! The leading cause of wrinkles is DRY SKIN! (Did you know that?? I didn’t!)

How to Wipe Away Wrinkles

Before I turned 30… I really didn’t take care of my skin.

I had cheap products that I sort of used (but not really).

When I turned 30… I started to think about how I was going to look younger (or at least look as young as I felt!) and that started with taking care of my skin.

 

I started learning that some of the best skincare is prevention… this means that I need a system that I can use everyday to take care of my skin.

 

Now, Why these products??

I needed something that I was easy to use (because let’s be honest… as a mom I need an easy button whenever I can use it!)

Plus… I really wanted to avoid some of the stronger chemical based skincare lines, but I wanted products that worked too! That’s when I found this botanically based skincare line that I could use without the guilt.

 

How well do they work??

What I can say is that my sister (who is gracefully older than me) has the BEST looking skin after using these products consistently for the past few months. My own skin? It feel cleaner and smoother – plus the instant results I get with WOW (Wipe out Wrinkles) is amazing!

 

How do you use them?

May your Skin be Merry and Bright

I know I love to pamper myself (and my skin loves me back ) Especially in the winter, I have to love on my skin even more because the cold, dry weather isn’t kind.

I started using a Hydrating Facial mask & Aloe Bead Exfoliating Peel and have LOVED how my smooth my skin feels!!

 

I know that I love that I can pamper my skin at home (and this busy mom needs an at home spa that doesn’t require an appointment). Just put this facial applicator on your clean skin and wait 45 minutes while it saturates your skin and leaves it deeply hydrated.

Here’s a fun video I made showing my morning skin care routine, you can check out some of my favorite products!

 

When you use an exfoliating peel your facial, your skin will be so smooth after! The exfoliating peel works to take off any dead skin with aloe beads and papaya. (Plus, it smells like heaven!)

Foods That Cleanse

When people message me wanting to lose weight or start eating healthier, I always recommend for them to get a jump-start o a new way of eating with a short “cleanse.” This will help them eliminate cravings, clear out the digestive system, and prepare for a new healthier way of eating.

 

What are some signs that you may need to cleanse or detox?

 

  • Bloated
  • Fatigue/Sluggish
  • Cravings
  • Headaches
  • Excessive Sweating
  • Acne
  • Insomnia
  • Moodiness
  • Constipated

 

Do you have any of these symptoms? By adding these foods into your diet, they can help your body cleanse and get the best results while your body adjusts to your new way of eating.

 

What are some of the best foods for cleansing?

 

Aloe Vera

I don’t know about you, but I only knew about Aloe Vera from getting burned as a kid, haha. With a little research I learned that it is a very powerful and healing food! Aloe Vera is said to have the ability to help you maintain youthful beauty and a healthy glow. Sounds like the perfect plant to me! But there are many, many benefits to Aloe Vera to help your health in general.

 

Aloe vera juice is one of nature’s most effective cleansers due to the high amount of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. It is powerful in helping the body get rid of any waste and help to detox naturally.  Read more

Aloe vera is also packed full of immune-boosting polysaccharides, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. Plus, It’s also rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, selenium and potassium.

Because not all of us eat aloe vera often, I wanted to know some popular foods that could help us too!
