Hi friends, 

I just wanted to give you a little something to think about before 2018. I think this year will be the year that we all want to take a little more time for ourselves. Have more gratitude, love, kindness, and abundant health. Enjoy the read.

Setting New Year Goals

As the New Year dawns upon us, so does the possibility of the new you. It is an unavoidable hope that the New Year will bring a clean slate for us to write our lives the way we want it to be. It is a beautiful belief to hold that we will regenerate and rebuild as the year starts again.

Do you feel overwhelmed when you shop for Protein Powders?
Here’s a few things to keep in mind when shopping for one.
🌱Don’t fall into the fancy marketing scam, that sucks you down the rabbit hole, meaning franken food(not real food)ingredients.
🌱Hidden sugars
🌱Know your product, read reviews, recognize that words like natural don’t mean organic! 
🌱If you can’t pronounce it, it is probably synthetic.
🌱Shop for organic.
🌱Lok for the non GMO label.(The certified blue butterfly is the label to look for.)
🌱If buying a flavored protein powder, think of the recipes you will be using. Will that particular flavor hinder the taste.
🌱Look for the amount if protein per serving. You typically want 15 or more.
🌱 If using a Whey protein powder make sure its grass fed.
🌱My two favorites brands right now are Garden of Life and Vega.
🌱If in doubt, reach out to me and I will be happy to anser your questions
