You’ll Only Go Nuts for the Twitter Party!

Did you just read that?!?  What the heck did that mean?  Well, let me tell ya.  I am going to be hosting an amazing twitter party alongside a brand called “Don’t Go Nuts”.  The entire purpose of their line is to cater to individuals who have severe nut allergies. The founders of this company are parents who had a child with a life-threatening nut allergy.   If you or a loved one has such a severe allergy to a particular food,…

Why Kyo-Green Helped My Gut

I’d like to take a minute to be real about my greens.  I have to admit I don’t always have them every day (shocker I know).  It’s not to say I don’t like them, sometimes I’m simply out of them, and other times (which is super rare) I don’t have the stomach for them.  Sure, you can cook up some peas and asparagus with dinner, which is still better than no greens – so don’t get me wrong there.   But…

Enhancing the Immune System with Plant Sterols

With the on-set of food allergies, compromised immune systems, and illnesses overpowering vaccines, we could definitely use a little more immune support.  Have you ever wondered why autoimmune diseases and inflammation are on the rise?   The causes of that can simply be endless. Which I won’t even get into because that in itself can be a long-winded discussion about the lack of FDA regulation and lobbyists.  But I won’t go there, and want to have this conversation veer towards a…

Detox The Body With Enviromedica Bentonite Clay Bath

The new year usually brings on New Year’s Resolutions and even a plethora of detox and cleansing routines.  I’m not a fan of resolutions (because I feel that you can change any time of year, not just Jan 1st). However, I am a BIG fan of detoxing, and in fact believe you should be in a continuous state of detoxification every week. Detoxing the body can be done in so many ways, from cleanses to massage, sauna, infrared sauna, exercise,…

Stash Your Food with Stasher Bag

Being someone who has food allergies and intolerances, taking my food on-the-go is inevitable.  Whether it’s taking my food to a trade show, a business meeting dinner in a restaurant, or even on an outing to a theme park like Disneyland; I’m always preparing food to take. Now, not only am I cautious with the food I take outside, I’m always cautious about what I put my food in as well.  I always cart it around in either a glass…

Put A Little Methyl In Your Folate

I wanted to get real with all of you, and let you know a little secret that a lot of vitamin companies already know.  Lots of the folic acid (or folate for short) that you find in supplements are a synthetic version of folic acid.  So, what does that mean? It means that you could not be metabolizing folic acid properly, and are not only wasting your time, but your money as well. Additionally, a whopping 70 percent of people…

Nourish Your Well-being with Yogi Surprise

Subscription boxes seem to be the thing of the season. Particularly because they’re so exciting! It’s like receiving a new birthday present every month, or every season depending on the service.  I ran across this subscription box service called Yogi Surprise!  I love Yoga, and the well-being that surrounds the art of it. AND to have a box that includes items I know I’ll like is rather exciting. This month was my first time receiving my Yogi Surprise Box, and…

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…
