dōTERRA Arborvitae $29.33 (retail) / $22.00 (wholesale)

With natural preservation properties, essential oil from the native Canadian Arborvitae tree acts as a powerful cleansing and purifying agent, while providing a warm, earthy aroma.

Known as the “tree of life,” Arborvitae is majestic in size and abundant in unique benefits. Our arborvitae essential oil is sourced from the heartwood of the Thuja plicata tree. It is also known as Western Red Cedar and is native to North America (primarily Canada and the Northwestern United States). This unique source of arborvitae essential oil contains a distinct chemical profile and is uniquely concentrated in methyl thujate. The sourcing arrangements for this oil are done in an innovative, environmentally-responsible way through distillation of residual wood materials to ensure no trees are unnecessarily harvested for production. Native to Canada, all parts of the Arborvitae tree were used extensively by Native Americans for health benefits and for building vessels, totem poles, baskets, and clothing. Because of its natural preserving properties, Arborvitae prevents wood from rotting, which makes it popular in woodcraft and for preserving natural wood surfaces.

Arborvitae essential oil may provide benefit to the healthy respiratory system,  healthy skin,  & emotional balance.  It is steam distilled and is high in monoterpenes.

Vios ~ Plant Based Nutrition Review

There’s a new kid in town….
Vios Nutrition! Vios is Greek for LIFE ❤

I’m always looking to better my health and the health of my family so when I hear “Plant-based nutrition” (though we do eat meat) it always peeks my interest.  And then I hear the word “convenience”…well heck yeah, count me in (y)

THEN the real kicker—- “All Víos products contain quality certified organic ingredients, are gluten-free, non GMO and 100% vegan. There are no preservatives, nothing artificial, no fillers and no sugar added. Pure quality ingredients… the way nature intended.” so y’all know I was gonna check that out!

Vios Nutrition is a new, LOCAL (to me, NC) company and if I recall correctly they were just established in April, 2016 and reached $1 million in sales within their first year!!  WOW!

Víos currently only offers 2 products, PHYTE and Matrix.  With all the key words I look for in nutrition products I ordered “samples” of these products and anxiously awaited their arrival.

PHYTE is a phytonutrition greens supplement that contains a powerful proprietary blend of cereal grasses, spirulina, chlorella, alfalfa leaves, and other greens. This unique combination of greens provides essential vitamins, minerals and proteins, and promotes overall good health. PHYTE is rich in chlorophyll, which is vital for the synthesis and function of healthy oxygen-rich blood, boosting stamina and endurance. PHYTE also contains essential enzymes and fiber that aid in digestion and help maintain healthy pH balance.

It’s a concentrated super, whole food, grown without pesticides and harvested at the plants’ peak nutritional level.  There’s no added yeast, sugar, salt, egg, fats, flavors, gluten, dairy or preservatives making it a perfect fit for my family’s dietary needs (no beef, corn, dairy, eggs, gluten, sugar, wheat or yeast).

MATRIX is a complete, plant-based meal replacement shake with a balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, omega-3 fatty acids, natural vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, branched chain amino acids pre and probiotics, and high quality fiber. Matrix is whey-free, with no added sugar, salt, synthetic vitamins or minerals, fillers or preservatives. It is also dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO and is USDA Certified Organic.

Matrix’s protein blend promotes muscle strengthening and conditioning; its fiber and carb blend helps boost stamina, energy and endurance; pre- and probiotics promote digestive health and support the body’s immune system; and its revolutionary adaptogen mix helps the body’s resistance to stress, anxiety and fatigue. Matrix is only 140 calories and contains 21 grams of protein.

Ingredients list is long but ALL REAL INGREDIENTS!! The protein comes from a blend of pea powder, millet powder, quinoa powder and pumpkin seed powder.  The adaptogen (herbs) blend consists of ashwagandha root, maca root and schizandra berry (uh yea, I had to look that one up too, it’s a real thing) powders.  Fiber in the mix is from golden flax seed, apple pectin, psyllium and aloe vera herb powders.  Then there’s a list of pre & probiotics as well as enzymes but those are some words that you won’t understand unless you already know what they are so I’m not gonna go into listing them 😉  Matrix also offers extracts of  vanilla, luo han guo, licorice and stevia.  Again, this product contains NO added yeast, sugars, salt, egg, dairy, synthetic vitamins or minerals, fillers or preservatives.

In the days leading up to arrival, I took a look at the owners and staff, and the business opportunity in the form of investment options.  Just think, what if YOU had gotten in on the bottom level of Facebook or Whole Foods, where would you be today?  I don’t have a plethora of cash laying around and there are lots of opportunity to spend what little there is on much needed repairs to our house but I started thinking…. “I’ve tried a lot of “vegan” proteins that leave a LOT to be desired, IF the Matrix was something I and my children could drink and would actually enjoy then there’s other people who are going to get excited about this product.  I mean look at our booming health food industry and the circle of “alternative options” is getting bigger, people are becoming more interested in “organic” products and wanting a “better way”…what if this is it?  What if I could take this high risk opportunity in a new company and it got BIG? What if my minimal investment actually paid off?”  I’ve never considered myself a dreamer and I’ve never (EVA) been a risk taker but my mind has been spinning with excitement, anticipation and what if’s!

THEN IT CAME!! My products arrived and I joyfully….sat them aside!  What was I waiting for?  I’d done all the research, I knew the products were good for me, all the anxious, giddy, excitement I had waiting (& studying) for them to get here and then I was afraid lol (yep that’s me, crazy like a fox).  BUT TODAY I BIT THE BULLET, I DID IT!

The PHYTE is your typical “greens” type powder, a dark, rich green that smells like…well, honestly, smells like grass haha (what else would you expect).  It contains barley grass, wheat grass, alphalfa leaf, sprouted barley, spirulina, chlorella, spinach leaf, nettle leaf and dandelion leaf with apple pectin, brown rice bran, beet juice powder and licorice root.  I have NEVER had a greens powder that I could drink in plain water so I did NOT attempt to do so this time either (though I may try it again just to see).  I added 1 c coconut water, 1 organic apple and juice of a 1/4 lemon with the greens pack and got it down with no problem!  Now, I ain’t gonna lie, I wasn’t as excited at the idea of trying the Phyte as I was the Matrix….I mean greens is greens am I right?  It looked rather disgusting but truly it didn’t taste bad at all.  I noticed almost immediately that I “felt” good, I felt healthy, I felt like I had gotten adequate “green” into my dietary which offered me a boost of “energy”.  I noticed I was being silly with my little, not my usual sarcasm but unbeknownst to me silly on her 9yo level haha.  Only downfall was that just including 2g protein I was still hungry.

Approximately 30-45 minutes later upon opening the Matrix I thought if it tastes half as good as it smells we have definitely picked a winner here.  Other vegan proteins I’ve had no matter what I added I couldn’t make it taste good enough to finish (bleeeeck) but I actually tasted this one just mixed with plain, unsweetened almond milk and it was “ok”, I mean I could’ve gotten it down and probably even finished it but wouldn’t have “enjoyed it”.  Like I said, OK, it had some what of a “dirt” taste BUTTTT once I added 6 cubes of ice and JUST a tsp of natural peanut butter….OHHH MYYY WORD!  I loved it!  Literally, it smelled like birthday cake (now my Dr. Axe whey protein smells like birthday cake and I love the taste but my son can’t have it because of the dairy), it didn’t have the “vanilla” taste I expected and there was no nasty aftertaste.  As a matter of fact the aftertaste was somewhat of a “sweetness” in my mouth 😀  Not only was it satisfying to my tastebuds but it was also pleasingly satiety (I never can use that word right)satisfying.  Didn’t make me feel FULL but satisfied…like I could’ve added another ounce or two with a tad more peanut butter and woulda been too much but just several more swigs woulda been good.

And added bonus which some will consider a TMI (but if you’ve stuck w/ me for long you know I’m all about sharing too much information haha) but within 30 mins (heck maybe less, because if was BEFORE this paragraph) I had my second BM today 🙂  (If y’all know my story, I used to go WEEKS and not have one but once I started watching what I ate and supplemented correctly I’m regular…but not regular like a “healthy body” should be.  Every time you eat, you should poop!  I’m typically 1-2x/day but it’s just now noon time and I’ve been 2x so whoop whoop)

I could’ve added the PHYTE and the MATRIX together rather than having two separate drinks but I wanted to be sure I tasted them individually

Bottom line, I will order MORE!
Not sure yet about the investment but it’s now something I’ve become MORE interested in since trying the products.  Just have to figure that out pretty quickly as that option is only available 6 more days (yikes)

OH…one more thing about the company…
“A key aspect of living The Víos Life is to help improve the communities where we live and serve, and to assist those who are less fortunate in the developing world. We are proud to partner with Hydrating Humanity, a faith-based non-profit humanitarian organization providing clean, safe water, hygiene training and hope for people in developing nations.

Each year, inadequate access to safe drinking water and improper sanitation cause an estimated 1.9 million deaths in developing countries, mostly among young children. Hydrating Humanity’s core purpose is to help connect resources to needs in developing nations throughout the world. It does this by first recognizing the strengths a particular community has, then partnering with that community to empower the people for a change, at a local level, that is sustainable long after Hydrating Humanity has left.

Víos is committed to supporting Hydrating Humanity’s critical mission. Each time a Brand Partner joins the Víos revolution, we provide six months of clean drinking water and hygiene training to a person in a developing nation, helping the organization to spread hope throughout the world.”

I ❤ ❤ ❤ working with a company that GIVES BACK!!

Shhh…it’s my secret

Actually it’s not much of a secret when everyone can SEE!

Y’all know I lost a total of 50 lbs three years ago…I went from a size 16/1X dress to a size 6 AND my health drastically improved! I give God all the glory and thank Him for literally dropping the simple steps into my lap!

It started with EZ changes like dropping “all things white” from my diet (sugar, breads and limited starches), consuming half my body weight in ounces of water and following the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge supplemental program.

Over a 6-7 month period I ate more food than should be normal HaHa (every 3 hours) and focused on clean meats, fresh (steamed mostly) veggies and organic fruits. I cut out all Starbucks frappucinos and limited my dessert treats to special occasions.

I didn’t deprive myself if I WANTED something I HAD it

Over time I began to realize I had once again become addicted to sugar! It creeped in slowly at first. Birthday cake at parties, dessert from the Sunday lunch buffet then added froyo on Wednesday nights before church and frappucinos couple times a week (once pumpkin spice RE-entered the lineup)…

Just before Halloween rolled around my 9yo started selling candy ($.25/) to help raise money for her babies in the Philippines and once all the children at school started noticing her “income”, well let’s just say they all found a “reason” and it got outta hand! Of course Halloween came & went and we couldn’t give the stuff away.

I’m a human trash compactor…I do not like to throw stuff away and tho I limited the intake of my family members (due to the plethora of allergies) I took it upon myself to get rid of it 🙄

Ya know what happened then… Thanksgiving!!!
T-day is the one time of year my husband insists I fix a “normal, traditional” meal “because we have non-allergen family coming over and we will feed them stuff they’ll enjoy”. Though I do understand his desire to feed his family (once a year) with their favorite dishes, this past year NOBODY CAME!!! The 6 from his family nor the 10 from mine…I cooked a full meal complete with multiple desserts for the entire crew.. and just US 7 ate!! And I ate and I ate and I ate… Christmas the following month, same shenanigans, family dropped like flies!

I knew 2017 had to include CHANGE! I had once again found things getting outta hand. I purchased size 10 jeans around Christmas that were uncomfortably tight. My sleep patterns were OFF! I found it difficult to be my usual early (420am) riser, go all day, happy-go-lucky self. I had aches and pains that had once become null and void AND the heartburn is now back!!

Here we are today… I turned 47 this past week and I’m up 25 lbs!!

Listen y’all I’m just keeping it real! I ain’t gonna lie, as a health coach that’s helping others break bad habits, lose weight and improve health, it’s very disheartening to have lost my own mojo! And another joyful side effect of finding myself in this start of an unhealthy predicament is that my husband doesn’t get his mojo either (*wink wink)
<—–THIS is what caused me to stop and take note of the situation.

You see, I’ve been here, this is where it all started 4 years ago and it’s really easy to let it keep going in the direction I’m headed but do I really wanna wake up one day and find myself in that position? Back over 200lbs, neglecting my mate due to physical insecurities, being uncomfortable in my own skin with a multitude of health issues that could potentially end my life (**side bar–I do not currently have any health issues to speak of per-say and what little things (like allergies, colds, headaches and heartburn) do pop up I’m able to treat/alleviate with essential oils) and so exhausted that I can’t bear another conversation about what elementary drama my 3rd grader has at school (bless her heart, life’s tough for a 9yo lol)

Yep, this is the year!
Now is the time to practice what I preach and once again put my foot down on the head of this monster!
I’ve won this battle once and I’m ready to wage war and “go home with the W” for the last time!

I have my plan in place (in my head not yet on paper…that’s pretty scary haha).
I’m starting with another AdvoCare 24DC (eliminating dairy, gluten & sugar), I will implement clean eating using the principles of THM (Trim Healthy Mama, still eating but separating fats & carbs), I will exercise by walking 1-2 miles 3-4/week (depending on weather) and incorporating 30 Days to Shred in between (or some other DVD as I no longer have a Zumba instructor and do not see the need for a gym membership) and I will use my essential oils to boost immunity, curb cravings and fight all the “mental” junk that can go along with detox!!

I predict within the next 60 days I WILL look and feel like the person I love to be physically. Here’s a real “kick-in-the-butt” key, I will also be growing Spiritually as I have neglected my Lord as of late as well. I haven’t been starting my days abiding with my saviour and I know the time I spend studying his word and meditating on scripture are the most important BREAD in my diet!

Would you care to join me on my journey to optimal health reboot? Do you need a good starting point or a jumpstart? I’m always happy to help and having partners in crime (lol) will help keep us ALL motivated, encouraging each other to push through, ensuring one another “this too shall pass” and rejoicing in each other’s success while praying for any bumps we may encounter along the way ❤

Are you in?

Honey–the kind ya eat not the one you live with

I have always known that honey is good for us!  I don’t mean the kind ya buy in the plastic bear containers but the REAL (raw, pure, natural) kind!  Everybody knows what honey IS right?  A sweet, sticky, yellowish-brown thick liquid made by bees from nectar collected from flowers.  Yes, it’s also an excellent example of something or term of endearment, but for this post let’s talk about the sticky sweet kind not the one that melts my heart 😀

My pastor even had a sermon on HONEY several years ago while doing a study on nutrition.  There are actually 61 direct references to honey in the bible with the first time being in the very beginning where it’s considered “the best”, an honored gift.
Genesis 43:11  And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

In Judges the question is asked “…What is sweeter than honey?”
To me that says USE HONEY AS A SWEETENER!  In fact, until sugar became widely available in the sixteenth century, honey was the world’s principal sweetener!

In bible days honey was a symbol of good health!  1 Samuel 14:27 But Jonathan heard not when his father charged the people with the oath: wherefore he put forth the end of the rod that was in his hand, and dipped it in an honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth; and his eyes were enlightened.

Proverbs tell us it is good— 24:13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

In Matthew, John the Baptist SURVIVED on honey, that tells me it’s a great staple for every home! Matt 3:4 And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.  NOW, I’m not telling you to go eat bugs but it wouldn’t hurt ya 😉

Used as an alternative to sugar, honey is a sweet, dense, flavorful food that can vary widely in taste and color, depending on what the bees are eating. Most grocers sell it, since it is a very popular food around the world but please be sure the ONLY ingredient is HONEY.

We have this little hole in the wall restaurant near by that’s been around for as long as I can remember and they have FAMILY STYLE DINING.  You do not order from a menu they just bring you a little bit of everything being cooked that night and you can get all the refills you can eat.  We don’t do bread in our home but they had these huge “cathead” biscuits that were buttery golden and crunchy around the edges…calling my name!  I asked did they have honey…they brought me the plastic bear and first thing I noticed was the bear’s “sign” said “Natural syrup flavored with honey”. Hmmmm… I flipped it over and do you know what the #1 ingredient was?? HFCS!  That’s high fructose corn syrup for those wondering what it stands for.

We’re all familiar with it but do you know what it is?  a sweetener made from corn starch that has been processed by glucose isomerase to convert some of its glucose into fructose (wide-eyes HUH?).  As a sweetener it’s chemically compared to granular table sugar but manufacturally it’s is easier to handle and more cost-effective therefore its in just about everything!  It has been suggested that this sweetener should be a concern in the overwhelming epidemic of obesity and diabetes in our society.  Bottom line, IT’S NOT NATURAL and causes major metabolic disorders!  Even when used in moderation it is a major cause of heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure, and tooth decay!

But I digress….
#2 ingredient was CORN SYRUP!
Hey, wait a minute….we’re talking about the little bear HONEY right?

#3 ingredient was HONEY (being the last ingredient meaning it contains less of this than the first two ingredients) fake honey

When making the decision for my family to remove added sugars from our diet, I decided that honey would remain in our diets for so many reasons!!

Y’all know I love THM (Trim Healthy Mama) and honey isn’t an approved sweetener…I take a little issue with this BUT as I’ve said so many times before we need to figure out what works best for our own bodies/families and not remove or add food groups because it worked for someone else (y)

Most of the honey consumed today is highly processed honey that’s been heated and filtered since it was gathered from the hive. Unlike processed honey, raw honey does not get robbed of its incredible nutritional value and health powers. It can help with everything from low energy to sleep problems to seasonal allergies. Switching to raw honey may even help weight-loss efforts when compared to diets containing sugar or high fructose corn syrup.

I believe honey CAN be good for weight management!
A San Diego State University study found that replacing sugar with honey can actually help prevent packing on extra pounds and also lower blood sugar.  Another study from the University of Wyoming found that raw honey can activate hormones that suppress the appetite.  Raw honey increases insulin and decreases hyperglycemia (whoop whoop bonus that’s good for diabetics)

I find when adding honey to my breakfast it offers an early boost of energy.
It provides an easily absorbed supply of energy in the form of liver glycogen, making it ideal for energetic morning starts and as a pre- and post-exercise energy source. 

I’m sure you’ve heard it said before that “local” honey can alleviate allergy symptoms.
Raw honey contains bee pollen, which is known to ward off infections, provide natural allergy relief and boost overall immunity.  The bees in your neighborhood go from flower to flower collecting pollen that causes you to suffer, but when a you consume local raw honey, you also consume that same offending local pollen. After some time, an allergy sufferer may become less sensitive to this pollen that previously caused problems and experience less seasonal allergy symptoms

I know so many people who are looking for a perfect antioxidant in supplement form but I suggest using honey.
Studies have shown that a daily dose of raw honey raises levels of health-promoting antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants help block free radicals in the body that cause disease. It also boosts the immune system, acting as a preventative against any number of debilitating diseases. Honey contains polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.

We use honey (specifically Manuka) on skin issues that we can’t seem to clear up any other way. With all it’s antibacterial benefits why would you NOT use honey as a skin healing tool?

If my children complain of a scratchy throat the first thing I reach for is the honey (and I always add a drop of Lemon essential oil for “cleansing”) for soothing.  And I know you’ve seen OTC cough syrups “with honey”, you don’t need that, scientific evidence shows that a single dose of honey can reduce mucus secretion and coughs.

Looking for a natural way to clean your face or help your acne riddled teen?  Make a face wash with honey.  Yes, it’s sticky but once wiped clean your face will feel so soft and smooth.  It makes a great exfoliator! Use honey on dry winter skin by adding two cups of honey to a bath, soak for 15 minutes, then add one cup of baking soda for the final 15 minutes (I ain’t gonna lie, this one can be pricey so only recommend this one if you truly have a NEED).

Raw honey has been known to promote restorative sleep by increasing melatonin.
Has anti-inflammatory agents that can treat respiratory conditions such as asthma.
It can help improve urinary tract infections due to its antibacterial properties.
Raw honey is full of natural prebiotics which promote the growth of good bacteria in the intestine.

I mean really y’all, the list is seriously endless, do some research on the plethora of benefits this God given tool offers ❤
