I was searching the many different options for a meal replacement powder and I chose this product. There are so many choices when it comes to what I sometimes just think of as protein powder. When choosing a powder its important to decide what you want out of it.

Last Friday, Heather, Marianne and I started our day bright and early with some HIIT training with Camp Gladiator. Camp Gladiator is an outdoor fitness camp, and today our work out consisted of interval training, body weight strength drills and cardio.
I have recently started using jojoba oil (I use Now Solutions, but we carry other brands of jojoba oil too) and it’s such a versatile product! There are many ways to incorporate jojoba oil into your health and beauty routine. This plant wax derives from the jojoba plant, which is located in Arizona, southern California and northwestern Mexico. It’s been known to help with hair and skin problems, contains vitamins and is anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory.
We are so close to being finished with our water challenge! Only one more week to go.
After our third week....
I have used this product a few times now, and I absolutely love it! This supplement is packed with herbs, enzymes, probiotics, greens, probiotics, fruits and vegetables. I use one scoop in my smoothie every morning, and even though I put a variety of fruits and vegetables in my smoothie already, I know I am getting proper nutrition when I use this product.
Swiss chard is a powerful superfood—it’s packed with potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper, Vitamins A, C and K. It also contains a wide range of antioxidants, including polyphenols, betalains and carotenoids. These help fight inflammation, free radical damage and disease (like diabetes).
Last night, Heather, Marianne and I participated in a hot yoga class at Hanaq-Prana Yoga. As we walked into the studio, the lights were dimmed, soft music was playing and I was ready to get my sweat on.
When I first entered the studio, it felt a little warm but I thought it would be a slightly hotter. Then, after about 10 of 15 minutes warming up, I could definitely feel the heat.
Banana Walnut and Protein Pancakes
I am not much of a pancake person, but I was really in the mood for (vegan) pancakes the other day. I came across this recipe on Pop Sugar and tweaked it a bit to fit my own needs.
We are officially halfway done with our water challenge, and we are starting to notice other ways that drinking a gallon of water a day has benefited us.
I started giving my dog vitamins a few months ago. I believe that my dog’s health is just as important as my own, and I want him to live a long and happy life, especially since my dog loves to eat anything he can get his paws on (like the trash, my food off the counter, his toys...etc.).
I recently purchased a kettlebell, and I absolutely love it! Although they are a little on the pricey side, they are totally worth the investment. Kettlebells are great for working the entire body, or if you want to target a specific area, there are exercises for the arms and shoulders, legs and glutes, and core.
Since today is Kiss a Ginger day, I decided to talk about ginger, and all the little hacks you can use ginger for. Ginger can be used as a muscle soother, cramp reliever and for nausea and digestive issues.
We documented how we've felt during the first week of the water challenge, and what changes we have noticed 8 days in (and what we haven’t noticed a change in). We have all had a similar experience, but we can all agree on one thing: countless trips to the bathroom.
Not being able to consume any animal products for a month has given me the opportunity to explore new foods and recipes. I wasn’t going to let a craving for pizza stand in my way, so I decided to put a vegan twist on this traditional dish.
Before the start of the new year, I decided that I am going to cut chicken out of my diet completely, and become a pescatarian. I normally don’t consume a lot of meat as it is; I eat chicken and fish a few times a week but I mainly consume vegetables, fruits, grains and eggs (and sometimes cheese). However, my plans took a drastic turn on New Year’s Eve.
Since I am under the weather this week, I need to take it easy on my work outs. I haven’t had a lot of energy to go to the gym, so I have been doing a bunch of yoga at home. Thanks to YouTube, I was easily able to find videos that will not only exercise my body, but alleviate my symptoms as well. I listed some yoga videos for you to try when you're feeling a little down, and hopefully they will give you the energy and strength you need to help ward off whatever illness you may have.
Today, the marketing department is starting off the New Year with a water challenge. The three of us will each be consuming one gallon of water every day for 30 days.
Each week, we will be documenting our journey and tracking our progress based on energy levels, skin (acne/hydration/dark circles, etc.), urine and bowel movements, bloating, cravings and possible weight loss.
