These are a few of my favorite things in 2019……. The list will grow all year and no, I do not get any kick backs from any of these companies. I just legitimately like their products (and missions) and want to share them with you. They all help maintain a balanced, nutritious, healthy and joyful life. Feel free to add any of your favorite things in the comment areas and check back for more treasures all year!
#3 Smoothie Plant Powered Nutrient Superfoods- Smoothies are the greatest way to make sure you are packing your day with delicious and powerful nutrients that your body needs. We are smoothie and smoothie bowl addicts at my house. Here are just a few of the superfood booster powders we play with every day. Kids get to pick which ones they want that day and I change it up in my own daily. Look for our Smoothie Worksheet coming soon! Acai Berries and Gogi Berries are packed with antioxidants, phytonutrients (important nutrients from plants), vitamins, trace minerals, healthy fats, certain amino acids, and fiber. Maca is a powerful adaptogen that is being studied fiercely right now. It is known to help people adapt to stress, balance hormones, feel energized, regulate blood sugar, and is loaded with antioxidants. Camu Camu Berries have an insane amount of vitamin C as well as other antioxidants and nutrients. If you are looking to boost your overall health, fight sickness and disease, and increase energy these superfoods are and awesome tool. A basic recipe is to mix 1 cup of nut milk with 3/4 cup of blueberries, 1 banana, 1 scoop plant protein powder, 1 tsp flax seeds, and 2 of these boosters (1 tsp each). Fat, fiber, protein, nutrients- my eating motto all in one glass! Boom!
#2 Lola Tampons– This company provides 100% organic tampons that are toxin free. Their mission is to promote open conversation around women’s health, to provide healthy products, to be supportive through each stage of a women’s hormone health, and to be totally transparent about their product. You can custom make your order to fit your exact needs. So cool. I have an order of 2 boxes of applicator free tampons coming every other month and each box has 6 light tampons, 8 super, and 4 super plus. They actually make it fun to customize your quantities depending on your individualized needs. Brilliant! I ordered their menstruation starter kit also so my 10 year old daughter will be empowered and informed when her big day comes. These are toxin free for your body and better for the earth. Win Win.
