Hello friends! It’s been a crazy couple days getting back from LA, but I was finally able to write up my experience at Expo West. I’m going to concentrate this post on the expo and not my whole time in LA for brevity’s sake — plus who doesn’t like reading about food? Natural Products Expo West is the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event. There is an east coast version, Expo East, which I attended about three years ago. I was under the misconception that they were both the same size, but I was definitely mistaken as I… View Post

I can’t believe it’s already been 4 weeks and my fitness challenge is over. Here’s my full recap on it, the results, and what I plan to do going forward! *This challenge involved things such as food tracking, which could be triggering to some people.

Some days (like a handful out of the year) I will be greatly inspired and slave away in the kitchen on some majestic meal, but day-to-day I’m running around and want foods to be as quick as possible. I love them, but I don’t love to make them, ya feel me? I used to eat sprouts a lot, but then they disappeared from the rotation for… View Post

This post is sponsored by Smarty Pants Vitamins. All opinions are my own! If you follow me on social media, you’re probably pretty aware of my love for kombucha. I drink it every day like it’s going out of style and this weekend I started brewing my own so I don’t spend our life savings on a beverage (no matter how good it is for you). I like it for the carbonation and the flavors, but more importantly, it’s BANGIN’ for my gut. It is a probiotic beverage containing enzymes that help support the health and natural balance of the intestinal… View Post
