Ritual Protein 

One of the best ways to detox your body is by adding a smoothie to your daily ritual. Not only will you get all the essential nutrients you need in just one glass, but combining that with a good protein will give you all the adequate nutrition you need every morning. Ritual protein powder provides 20 grams per serving of clean, plant-based, and sugar-free formulas that are guaranteed to taste great. No more wasting money on protein powder that claims to taste great but leaves you with that chalky taste in your mouth. With its amazing sugar-free vanilla protein powder and multivitamins, ritual deserves a place in your daily diet to help support the nutrient demands of every key life stage.

Poshmark 

Are you a buyer or a seller? Or maybe you're both? That's what makes Poshmark so great. You can sell high-end ticket items that you no longer need, or you can find and purchase old pieces of clothing that you may have lost during a move. True story, but thankfully Poshmark saved the day for me. Poshmark allows you to buy and sell your clothing up to 70% off and find unique brands that are either brand new or gently used; you can list an item in less than 60 seconds, sell whatever you have in your closet, and shop for something else that you love.

Usual Wines 

With all this chat about detoxing, we also have to remember to have a little bit of fun, and one of my favorite ways to have fun is with a glass of usual wine. Usual wines take the same approach with making fantastic wine but delivering it in 6.5 oz single-use glasses, perfect for the modern drinker. Not only are Usual wines low carb, but they also contain no additives, no sweeteners, no pesticides, and never go flat. Go check out their Usual Spritz low in alcohol, light, refreshing and perfect for those hot summer days fast approaching.

Did you know that over 80,000 chemicals are currently being used in the United States? 😱😱

What’s even scarier is that most of these chemicals haven’t even been tested on how they can affect our health. Yet, we have seen the devastating effects of what these chemicals can do to our body, with the skyrocketing numbers of chronic illnesses and debilitating diseases. 

So, what can we do about it? How can we make sustainable changes and help rid our bodies of these unwanted toxic chemicals? 

In this episode of the #FoodHealsPodcast, I invited Aimee Carlson, to break it down for us. Aimee is the best-selling author of The Toxin Terminator: Finding Focus, Energy and Renewed Health by Removing Toxins, podcast host of The Toxin Terminator, and a certified Toxicity and Detox specialist. Aimee helps people identify and remove hidden toxins from their bodies, homes, and their lives to restore and renew their health!

After being an automotive franchise owner for thirty years, Aimee was exposed to dangerous toxins for most of her adult years. As a result, she suffered from migraines, headaches, and reproductive issues that eventually led her to have a hysterectomy in her 30’s and to fight menopause symptoms soon after. With endless doctor visits, numerous medications, and no hope for her future, Aimee began to wonder if this is what life was meant to look like for her. 

Finally, after many years of no answers, she was introduced into the world of natural medicine and soon found out that she was in a toxin overload. Soon after she began to detox her body, home, and life, and discovered she could heal herself.

Aimee’s passion is now to help others live without chronic diseases and truly renew their health, focus, and energy. 

Join us @foodhealsnation for Part 1 of our interview with The Toxin Terminator as we discuss:

  • Aimee’s harrowing health journey 
  • Everyday household products that are killing us
  • The five pillars of living a toxin-free lifestyle 
  • Why fragrance is the new second-hand smoke 
  • Label Reading 101: Understand what's in your products
  • Think Dirty App: Warning: This app will change everything!

Have you ever felt guilty for wanting to be hot, healthy, and successful?

Raising my hand right here! 🙋‍♀️

You are not alone, Food Heals Nation…

In our latest episode of The #FoodHealsPodcast, Registered Dietician and weight loss expert at The Sorority Nutritionist, Lauren Hubert, breaks down the secrets to lose weight, gain confidence, and love the way you look while still eating the foods you love 💗

Lauren went from a “hot mess express” to hacking her “hot girl health,” and now inspires women across the world to do the same.

After gaining 20 pounds as freshmen in college (Drop a 💯 emoji if you’ve been there ;) Lauren found herself struggling with her self-confidence and feeling insecure about the way she looked.

Determined to lose the weight, she began running for hours every day and cutting out calories from her diet, leading her to being extremely restrictive with her food choices and even scared to grab a drink with her sorority sisters. It wasn’t until she began studying nutrition that she realized her diet was a #hotmess express and she was going about eating and exercising all wrong. This realization led her to take her health into her own hands and change her habits for good.

Now as a Registered Dietitian, Lauren is passionate about teaching women how to fuel their bodies for lasting and balanced weight loss. Her goal is to not only inspire women to lose weight in a fun way, but to also make sure no woman feels guilty about wanting to be HOT, healthy, and successful.

Join @foodhealsnation and @sorority.nutritionist to learn:

🌟 How to lose fat and transform your body regardless of what the scale says

🌟 The secret to improving your relationship to food

🌟 How to fuel your body for weight loss instead of starving it
