A Keto Twist on Your Go-To Sandwich

A Keto Twist on Your Go To Sandwich
Beauty Brite Disclosure

The Keto Diet has been making its way across the U.S. as a top leading contender in weight loss. I have looked into this diet a few times but just couldn’t commit. I’m the type of person who needs it laid out in front of me exactly what I can and cannot have! Instead, I find tons of cheats or hacks, which is great except I still don’t know what I am supposed to have. In the meantime, I have been adding bits and pieces of the diet plan into my meals and one way I have found the easiest way to cut corners is with sandwiches.

The Best New Products For Women’s Health

The Best New Products For Women's Health
Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s a brand new year and a chance to feel better than ever before! Because well-being and fitness are important to me, I love discovering new products that support women’s health.

I wear lots of hats as a wife, mom, daughter, and working mom. Most days leave me feeling drained and exhausted. It’s important that I have products in my life that help me look and feel my very best. 

I’m excited to share with some of my recent finds! Whether you’re a college student, stay-at-home mom, beloved Nana or a corporate mama, there’s something for every woman at every age.

For most of my life, I’ve struggled with the exact opposite of gorgeous hair. Naturally, I have very fine hair without much volume. After my son was born, I actually ended up losing a lot of hair! After that, I knew I needed to find a supplement that could help improve my hair.

I was really excited to check out Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies. I love the super cute heart shape, and the summer strawberry flavor is tasty! Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are vegan, gluten-free, gelatin-free, and contain zero artificial flavors. 

Vegamour Love Struck Biotin Gummies are comprised of a special blend of vitamins and minerals that promote healthy hair, starting from the scalp and encouraging hair growth. Made of a power-packed blend of biotin, folic acid, B-5,6,12, Vitamin A,C, and E. These were incredibly gentle on my stomach and I could even take them on an empty stomach!

Low carb diets are very popular right now. Whether it’s Keto, South Beach, Paleo – many people are switching to a low carb way of life and reaping the benefits. My husband and I follow the Keto diet which can sometimes leave us feeling fatigued, especially when our electrolytes are out of whack. Ultima Replenisher has become a daily essential for me!

I can’t stress enough how well this product works! After a workout or a hot day, this is the perfect “pick me up,” as it replenishes electrolytes lost. Ultima Replenisher is vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, caffeine free, peanut/soy free, and sweetened with organic stevia. Simply add the packet to your bottled water, shake, and enjoy. I highly recommend the Cherry Pomegranate flavor, so delicious!

Rosebud Woman is a family-owned business that puts great care into the products they create. Every feminine health item they make is plant-based and gentle for skin. I also love that when I purchase from Rosebud Woman, a portion of their proceeds are donated to vetted non-profits who are supporting women and their families. 

I highly recommend Honor Regenerating Balm! It’s a great balm for women of any age, very gentle and nourishing for the most intimate skin. Honor Regenerating Balm improves skin resilience and accelerates skin repair. This has helped me greatly since becoming a mom. Applying Honor Regenerating Balm before baby helps reduce the risk of tearing during delivery. For current moms, it will promote faster healing after giving birth. For menopausal women, this will help greatly with frequent dryness. I recommend using this nightly to revitalize intimate skin, or it can also be used 10 minutes before a sensual encounter. 

Many of us need a little help getting our “groove” back after we’ve had children or reached a certain age. Arouse Stimulating Serum has definitely become one of my go-to products. If you’ve been feeling a lack of sensation, it will help enhance any sensual encounter. Using a natural stimulant, Spilanthes Acmella, it will deliver a gentle tingle to the most intimate areas. This luxurious serum stimulates, lubricates, plumps and tingles! 

These days, I’ve got plenty of aches and pains. I’d been searching for a natural source of pain relief instead of constantly reaching for the bottle of aspirin. I’ve heard wonderful feedback from friends that tried CBD products for pain relief. I loved getting to check out Muscle MX CBD Balm, it worked fantastic for me! Muscle MX CBD Balm is THC-free and made in the USA with all-natural ingredients.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate works at the start of your day, apply first thing when you wake up. Muscle MX CBD Balm Activate will help prevent any pain later in the day. I love to use this on the back of my calves and lower back.

Muscle MX CBD Balm Recovery is the perfect remedy for sore muscles. My husband swears by this stuff after a long day at work! It’s icy cool and feels so soothing anywhere I’m feeling tension or pain.

For additional muscle relief, the Rykr Roll is a unique handheld massager that gently applies accupressure to muscles. I love using Rykr Roll on my feet, calves, arms, back, and temples! Self massage is an effective method of pain relief that doesn’t involve costly pills or prescriptions with dangerous side effects.

Rykr Roll works on muscles to increase oxygen flow and improve blood circulation. In addition to relief for sore muscles, Rykr Roll also works to relieve symptoms of arthritis and fibromyalgia.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these new and exciting women’s health products! Let’s make 2020 the year that we feel our best! What products have you been enjoying this year? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

Where To Buy Keto Treats?

Where to BUY Keto Treats

I want to share with you a company that makes and delivers KETO TREATS right to your door. Keto…what?  If you haven’t heard of the Keto diet, what rock have you been hiding under? 

At the beginning of a new year, everyone is always on a DIET, and the KETO DIET is probably the most popular one.  Some of my friends last year were raving about the Keto Diet and a lot lost weight. I’ve never been a diet type of person, even though I should be, but the Keto diet did pique my interest. 

What is the KETO DIET?

LOW CARB, that is the keto diet.  The body produces ketones in the liver to used as energy. When you eat high carbs, your body produces glucose and insulin. Then when you lower your carbs, the body goes into the ketosis stage. 

Ketosis is the natural process when food intake is low. The goal of the Keto diet is to go into the metabolic state. Which okay, I get it a little, and if you want to know all the Keto medical jargon, then do a google search, but for today I want to talk about Keto Treats! I need treats in my life!

Keto Treats

Let me introduce you to EXPLORADO MARKET & FAT FIT GO- a full production keto/low-carb kitchen + grocery store + bakery in Fort Collins, Colorado. But no worries if you don’t live in Fort Collins, you can still their yummy keto treats! 

Now the keto diet has been around for a while, and Kendra and Rob Bensen started a blog with a focus on Paleo & Keto recipes, meal plans, and biohacking tips. Then they created their own kitchen, and Explorado Market was born. I love how they took something that changed their life and wanted to share with others. 

Where to buy Keto Treats- Chocolate Chip Cookies

Small, filler-type gifts are one of my favorite things about planning for birthdays and all the different holidays that we love to celebrate. Sometimes these small, inexpensive filler gifts will go into an overall gift basket. But, for Christmas they more often than not are destined for my kids’ Christmas stockings (unless they directly correlate with a larger gift).

For example, if I’m gifting a makeup organizer or beauty bag to one of my daughters, I might purchase bottles of nail polish/polish remover, nail files, eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow, makeup remover pads or other such items to put inside the organizer or bag before wrapping. However, if I’m not gifting a larger item like that, these smaller items will end up in their Christmas stockings along with the small treats or candies.

Some things I buy for stockings every year — a candy cane, chocolate candies like Hershey Kisses, a chocolate santa or reindeer, Christmas-themed suckers, etc. But, I truly thrive on finding totally unique items to also stick in there that I’ve never given before.

Here, I will be sharing some of the fun, unique items that are going into my kids’ stockings this year. They would also work great in gift baskets, too.

I can’t wait to see how they react! The first two items listed are snack foods. Since the holidays are inevitably full of sweet and high-calorie treats, I decided to share two snacks that are not only delicious and full of flavor but also healthy treat options! But, trust me, your loved ones won’t even know it because they will be so bowled over by the flavors.

Treat Yourself With Healthy Ice Cream

Summer may officially be coming to an end, but the fun isn’t quite over yet for my family. I’m a big fan of Stephen King. I’ve been reading his novels and watching screen adaptations of his work for many years. My oldest daughter has become a fan and borrowed many of his books from my bookshelf.

My husband has even gotten on the King train (sort of) and will watch with us sometimes. We most recently watched In The Tall Grass on Netflix, based on a horror novella written by Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill. I haven’t read the novella yet, and I thought the screen adaptation was good. But, I think my husband liked it even more than I did.

IT: Chapter 2 movie ticket stub

Our family (the kids are all teens and young adults now) recently went to the movie theater to watch Stephen King’s It: Chapter 2 together, followed by a family pizza night with ice cream for dessert.

The movie theater was giving out fun IT-themed popcorn buckets with a design of Pennywise’s signature red balloons on it. How cool is that?!

Stephen King's IT: Chapter 2 popcorn bucket

Re:THINK Ice Cream was a delicious, creamy treat to end our fun family night. It’s made with healthy ingredients for a dessert that doesn’t have to be sinful. We were delighted to find that all of the flavors we tried are so sweet and flavorful that we totally forgot we were eating something healthy.
