Coconut oil: Lately I have been working on getting more healthy fats into my diet. I like to add a tablespoon of coconut oil to my smoothie every morning. Handful of frozen fruit, water or almond milk, coconut oil, protein powder, collagen, flax seeds, and spinach. I always reach for cold pressed and unrefined coconut oil.
Vital Collagen: You guys…this stuff is the real deal. I have noticed lots of new hair growth on my head, my nails grow so fast, my eyebrows are out of control and I have to shave every other day when I used to shave maybe once every two weeks. It’s flavorless so I add it to my shake or orange juice in the mornings.
Reishi Tincture: This stuff is…interesting BUT I really, really like it. It makes you feel very calm. I am all about natural medicine and will basically try anything after doing my research. You can read about some of the benefits here. The Etsy shop is called NorthCoveMushrooms. If you are feeling any kind of imbalance or you need some help sleeping, this stuff if your friend! In fact, I used to take this in the mornings with my smoothie but it was making me feel sleepy so I take it before bed now.
Coty Airspun face brightening powder is goooood. I don’t really wear much make up but when I do, I like to brighten my under eyes because I have hereditary dark circles. It’s $6 and you can thank me later ;). You can get it on Amazon but I found it slightly cheaper at my local grocery store. I have the color Translucent.
Flaxseed: Like I mentioned above I love just about all things natural medicine. I truly believe the power of a healthy diet is underestimated and food is medicine. I have been working really hard to filter out about 90% of sugar and processed foods from my diet and when I can include healthier options. Flaxseed in my smoothie is a game changer. At first I wasn’t too sure I’d enjoy the taste, I read about how they have an earthy taste and some people try to mask the flavor but they actually go really well with the other ingredients in my smoothie! I encourage you to research the benefits and try them in your protein shake or smoothie.
