My Favorite Iced Golden Milk

Oh hey guys! Thanks for checking out my blog! I have never been much into blogging, but there is a right time for everything and it just feels right! I am excited to share my all time favorite products and recipes here with you. 

Here is a recipe that I like to create often because it is not only delicious, but it is calming and energizing at the same time.

It contains Ashwagandha which is an adaptogenic root that is great for anxiety, sleep, energy and mood.. along with many other benefits. Some people become energized from it, while others tend to relax and have better sleep. The only way to really know is to try it! It makes me feel calm and happy. My favorite brand is Banyan Botanicals which is only around ten dollars on Amazon for a good size container. Try this out and please let me know what you think! xo

What the Health?

Unknown.jpeg

Hi everyone! In a world full of opinions and too many decisions it can get confusing on what we should be eating. A recent documentary has come out promoting the benefits of a plant based diet. It is called What the Health. I had a chance to watch it, and of course I thought it was incredible. It was full of useful information for those wanting to prevent or fight disease, cancer, weight gain and early death. 

It also talked about how diabetes is actually created from eating an abundance of animal products and not so much from processed sugar! This information is new and hard to believe, but there are scientists who have proven it to be true. I have noticed many bloggers in the health food industry disagreeing with the documentary and finding it to be one sided. Its hard to understand, but promoting a plant based diet can appear one sided of course.

People who truly believe in the benefits of this lifestyle don't believe we should be consuming animal products for optimal heath. I believe that only positive changes can come from transitioning to a plant based diet! As long as you are doing it correctly and making sure you are eating REAL, whole foods, you are going to thrive!! We are here to guide you and teach you how to fuel your body the correct way. Please let me know your thoughts below if you have had the chance to see this documentary! 

 


Let's build a better you.
