Here are some of my favorite things! These are products + companies I whole-heartedly love, endorse and use in daily life. Each featured business has contributed to the enhancement of my own health, so I have carefully chosen this small list of businesses to affiliate with, because I think they can be avenues for you to also explore, as you seek further supports on your health journey. I use all of these regularly, and will likely refer you to them during sessions. so I stand by them. And, in sharing what I love, I also get a small affiliate payment, which helps me support my small business. I hope you try and thoroughly enjoy some of these delights just as I do!
Rasa. We’re in the midst of a Human Energy Crisis. We extract too much from our bodies without giving enough back, and—in order to avoid burnout—we need regenerative energy. Coffee. Ain’t. It. Rasa is.
Rasa is a line of adaptogenic coffee alternatives that give you regenerative energy & fill the well within.
Their signature 12 herb formula has 7 adaptogens & 2 ‘shrooms to give you all-day energy + replenish your energy reserves, boost your mood and help you be more of a BAMF when sh!t hits the fan! They also have Dirty Rasa, which has a little coffee (10 mg caffeine) mixed in if you can’t quite give up your fix (like me) plus some amazing cocoas, as well as blends for sleep, immunity and mood. Psst, the sex tonic is so fire! They have a Rasa for everything and I’m here for it!
Rasa is perfect if you’re keto, vegan, paleo, or just human! It contains no fillers or common allergens, & is Certified Organic with 100% sustainably harvested herbs & mushrooms. I have it every day and highly recommend you do too. Get you some Rasa and let me know how you feel! #adaptogens
Hamama makes growing superfood greens fail-proof! Seriously, just add water once and harvest in a week. Grows indoors, year-round, even in low light!
They have broccoli, red cabbage, kale, fenugreek, wheatgrass, clover, wasabi mustard, daikon radish, super salad mix & zesty mix. All of their seeds are Non-GMO and most organic.
Microgreens tend to have more concentrated flavors, tender textures, vibrant color, and densely-packed nutrients than their mature counterparts. They are generally rich in sources of vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene, and are low in oxalates (anti-nutrients). I’ve loved sprouts since I was a kid, buying them in the co-op with my parents. Now I can have them every day, and it makes me so happy! Grow your own too, it’s super fun!#microgreens
