Is it just me or is it safe to say this has been the most stressful summer of the century? Finding “calm” now is more important than ever...but sometimes, juggling family with work can literally seem to endure the entire 24 – making it hard to squeeze in the “ME TIME” we all need to relieve and reset our mind and body of the weight that stress can bring.
Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures...so, let’s get blending and let the bliss begin with this Lavender and Relaxation Smoothie!
As a working mother of three, I’ve quickly learned that smoothies are the perfect way for me (and my kids) to get a daily dose of health-benefiting, immune-boosting nutrients, all while on-the-go. They hit all my requirements: yummy, easy, quick, and healthy!
This week’s smoothie is packed with nutrient-rich and delicious ingredients like turmeric. With just one sip, you’ll quickly realize “youth” never tasted so good! “Youth”?
I have searched long and far for a snack bar and protein shake that tastes amazing, is made with shitake and Rishi mushrooms for their immune-boosting support, sweetened with natural and non-gut irritating monk fruit and made for women!!
I'm tired of forcing myself to eat another bar just because I'm starving! I'm tired of protein shakes that taste like chalk... or worse, fake chocolate and horrible vanilla!
It passes ALL of my requirements for healthy and nutritious:
✔ 15g protein
✔️ zero sugar
✔ vegan (not a requirement for me, but for many)
✔ high in fiber, aka 💩-friendly
✔ kid-friendly and ❤️. Mom approved

A Whole Body Vibration Training Plate vibrates at a specific frequency and is used to activate your hormonal, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and nervous systems simultaneously.
These vibration frequencies also help oxygen and nutrients get to your muscles and other tissues more efficiently, which can aid in flexibility, blood flow, muscle soreness, and can even reduce levels of cortisol, your main stress hormone.
By sitting or standing on the vibrating platform, your muscles will relax and contract a dozen times each second - giving you better results in less time.
