No matter what I do, spring comes with a vengeance every year. I’ve been talking to loads of people all over the country (+ world) who are experiencing the same things. Runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, general gross puffiness. You have got work to do and no time for allergies!

Is Health A Luxury?

I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?

Review: Cora Cotton Tampons

Taking your health to the next level as well as caring for the environment seems like an easy enough task but finding products that you love that also work can be difficult.

Environmentally Friendly Grocery Shopping || Bag Guide

In case you’re wondering if it matters, let’s look at some shocking facts and I hope we’ll all soon realize it is really important.

Ripple Nutrition Protein Shake: Review

I was out at Target and decided to take a look at the protein shake section as I was checking to see if my favorite probiotic was in stock (it was not). I found Ripple’s protein shake.

I’ve had Ripple chocolate milk before and it is pretty tasty. I think it’s a great addition to a smoothie. It’s thick, creamy, and just chocolatey enough. However, it still has that tiny bit of chalky taste due to the pea protein. Overall though, I think it’s a great plant based milk and especially great for kids.

Best Places To Start Reducing Toxins In Home

When I first thought about the idea of reducing toxins and going chemical-free, I was very very overwhelmed. Honestly I can still be overwhelmed somedays at my lack of full control over what I expose my self to. It was really my move to Hanoi, Vietnam and joining doTERRA that pushed me to think long and hard about what I was exposing myself to and how I could make sure it contributed to my health instead of hurting me.

I like to start simple and small.

Being Your Own Health Advocate

The modern Western health care system is set up today so you don’t have to do much thinking. It’s also set up so you’re a number that gets moved along. Doctors barely have time for 15 minutes with you. Which is not their fault at all but a result of the commercialized and capitalistic society that governs the system. (I will proceed to stay on my soap box)

Why You Should Never Follow A Meal Plan

I use to be obsessed with meal plans. Like tell me EXACTLY what to eat and I’ll do it. But I need specifics. I liked knowing that that the guess work was taken out of what to eat and all I had to do was cook. I searched out meal plans and found ones I liked and paid quite a bit of money over time for them.

Then when I started really diving into my own health I realized something- meal plans don’t work.
