August 28th, 2015 | Living, Personal, Practical Living

August 3rd, 2015 | Eating, Nourishing Foods

 

We often get asked about protein powder. The truth is most proteins powders have a bunch of junk in them that you want to steer clear of, and are made in such a way that damages the proteins. However, there are a few out there that have high-quality ingredients without all the additives and chemicals.

Vital Proteins Collagen and Peptides are a great source of protein AND have many added health benefits.

It’s one of my favorite Paleo-friendly, health promoting products.

June 15th, 2015 | Eating, Healthcare

Do you struggle with a skin condition such as rashes, acne, hives, or eczema?

I did. That’s my leg you see in the picture above…and that was before it got REALLY bad. I had red, painful, oozing, itchy, “crawl-out-of-your-skin” rashes covering my entire body for YEARS. Yes…YEARS.
