Gluten Intolerance Protection with Enzymes

Eating out with gluten intolerance has challenges in itself. From the continual manhunt for restaurants that either have a gluten-free menu or that can accommodate gluten-free requests, eating out can be downright discouraging.  What’s even more discouraging is that most restaurants cannot fully prevent the cross-contamination of gluten in your food. But let me tell you that I’ve found the solution to ease my troubles – digestive enzymes! I’m sure you’ve seen it. That little disclaimer at restaurants and on…

8 Products That Help Promote Wellness When You’re Sick

This year seems to be the year that has hit people hard with colds, flu and upper respiratory/sinus infections. It hit me the worst in I don’t know how long. It started out as a cold and then turned into a sinus infection and bronchitis. I decided to take a more natural route and search for products that would help to promote wellness. Since I’ve been healing my gut, I opted out of taking any type of antibiotics.   While antibiotics…

4 Ingredient Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Soy-Free Chocolate Cake

My name is Saarah and I am a chocoholic.  Like seriously.  I have to have chocolate once a day.  But it’s from a plant, so it must be healthy, right? There are so many health benefits from cocoa such as decreased cholesterol, improved blood vessel health, high in antioxidants, and much more.  However finding the right chocolate that isn’t just going to clog up your arteries can sometimes be difficult to come by.  Particularly when chocolate can be laced with…

Keep Your Nose Clean with Oogiebear

Have you ever gone to a playground or a play date and see a child (or two) with a big dry/slimy booger just hanging there; a booger that you would pull out yourself if it were your own kid. Yes, they are gross. BUT, they’re something that happens to the best of us.   I mean, better out than in, right? Or how about when it’s your own child and you’re rushing to get a wipe or something that can fish…

The Teal Pumpkin Project

It’s that time of year, where there’s pumpkin everything, colder weather, Halloween parties, and of course, tons of sweets. For most of us, it’s an exiting time of year for sugar highs, and togetherness. For others, it’s the time of year to feel left out and awkwardly different; particularly for your little ones. Why? Because there are some little ones that have terrible food allergies and can’t eat most things that are handed out for Halloween. OR, some of us…

Sugar Really Isn’t Sweet

As we’re all trying to eat healthier and better… us beauties are always on the hunt for better alternatives to sugar, while not ingesting those fake sweetener chemicals that are just as bad if not worse than simply ingesting sugar.  One thing to note is the actual amount of sugar that we find in our foods.   When you read the label of an item, and you see “21 grams sugar”…what does that actually mean?  When you really think about it…sugar…

The All Natural Lie

Can I just say #$@! the words “All-Natural”?!?!? I mean, excuse my rant, but the marketing departments of food companies (and cosmetics) have really pushed the phrase “All Natural” to the maximum limit when it comes to foods. Yes, we all need to eat more foods around the perimeter of the store (which I do), however for those snack foods you like to have around the house for you and the kiddos…the word’s “All-Natural” have lost all meaning to me…its…

Six Tips for Success at SOULCYCLE

Soulcycle has been all the rage, so I decided to give it a try… I don’t know about you, but the thought of taking classes at the gym really bore me (YAWN).  I really get bored because classes are usually too slow of a pace for me, and I end up wasting my time and not putting forth the effort. I’ve even walked out of a class before too.  So I’ll tell ya, I was a little nervous before I…
