my current supplements October 2018


In this post I'll share the pills I fill my vitamin container with every week but before I do... story time! I have been taking supplements since I was 14...yep. The young, ripe age of 14. That's also when I lifted my first weight. I had no clue what I was doing but I now know that I was in fact doing a bicep curl. HAHA. Anyway, supplements are amazing. For many reasons, to reach your goals faster and to also ensure that you are hitting all of your daily nutrients for the day. I like to think of them as your insurance policy for your health. You don't eat the same thing everyday and if you do, is that adding up to the exact amounts of nutrition you will need for that day? The answer is most likely, no. 

That is why supplementing is wonderful!

non toxic deodorant review

This has been a long awaited post and I've been asked a few times the past couple of weeks what natural deodorants I love. Well... here's the line-up. I love all 3 of these! Honestly. I think they all work well and get the job done! 

Here are some notes.

Homemade Pesto + a few uses

As social media does, I saw everyone posting about Trader Joe's pesto sauce, so I ran out to grab some and try it out. I was not a huge fan of the ingredients from the get-go but still wanted to try it. 

I ended up using it more in my daughters lunch than anything so of course I wanted to feel the absolute best sending her off to school with her healthy lunch that included healthy, homemade pesto sauce ;) I knew the base of pesto was Basil leaves so I picked those up and cashews are all the rave as a substitute for cheese. My husband and I are actually huge fans of Austin Texas' Picnik creamy queso (so so good!) and the base to that recipe is cashews. I have also made a queso-like dressing out of cashews before for one of my taco Tuesday posts ( check it out HERE ).
