Let’s unwrap my top picks. 🌿🎁

Reusable Silicon Bags

The STASHER is endlessly reusable, resealable, silicone storage bag that eliminates single-use plastics.  I am replacing all of my single use storage bags. I love the idea of being able to use these for everyday and also for the freezer, They have a wide range of colors and lots of bundles too. Their locking seal is amazing for liquids. One side is smooth, and one side is matte finish. Great for labeling.
My favorite economy version is LERINE.

You will see these highlighted in my Meal Prep Series in January.

ONE BAG REPLACES 260 SINGLE USE PLASTIC BAGS EACH YEAR

  • Sanitizing kitchen sink and other items
  • French Press

Vitamix Blender

This is a staple in our house. You first saw me use it in my Frozen Lemonade Tonic. I also shared with you one of my favorite soups, Tomato Soup.  I used this multiple times per day. I chose Vitamix because of its reputation of being handed down, not thrown away, which I love. It is powerful with it’s aircraft-grade stainless steel blades that breaks up even the toughest ingredients, it is a metal drive system that connects the container to the motor base—allowing better blends and a longer lifespan. And, it is self cleaning! Add warm water and a drop of soap and 30 seconds later, your blender is ready for it’s next task.

Mini Trampoline

If you are looking for something that will change the way YOU (and your loved ones) look at exercise, consider REBOUNDING. 

For MANY reasons, the mini trampoline is at the top of my list of favorite things this year! I feel like I have finally found the perfect exercise that I can stick with for the rest of my life. If you are looking for the perfect gift, you will never go wrong giving the gift of HEALTH.
Listed below are the long list of benefits. HERE ARE MINE:

  • Low Impact on my joints
  • 10 minutes of trampoline workout is the same as 40 minutes of running (See Report from NASA)
  • Convenient – At home and at any time, rain or shine!
  • It is FUN!!!! No, seriously! It.Is.Fun. You can keep your own pace during workouts. You can move without leaving the trampoline or you can jump high into the air –  Sign Up for the FREE Trial  It takes about 2 minutes of jumping to shake off a bad mood 😄
  • Lymphatic System Stimulations – this is the reason I tried this. I had my salivary gland removed a while back and some days I need to manually massage to reduce the swelling.
  • Weight Loss – The constant bouncing engages multiple muscle groups, revs up your metabolism, and aids in weight management. It strengthens every single cell of the body, both muscle and non-muscle.
  • I look forward to it – I don’t dread it. 200+ workouts accompanying this rebounder are incredibly fun. You can pick what you enjoy.
    Even rebounding while you watch the news or watch your YouTube in the morning will have dramatic benefits on your health.

1. Cardiovascular Fitness

Rebounding isn’t just about bouncing up and down; it’s a cardiovascular workout in disguise. The rhythmic bouncing engages large muscle groups and gets your heart pumping, improving blood circulation and enhancing your cardiovascular fitness. This low-impact exercise can be particularly beneficial for individuals who need a gentler option for their heart health.

2. Lymphatic System Boost

Your lymphatic system plays a vital role in removing toxins and waste from your body. Rebounding helps stimulate the lymphatic system, promoting detoxification and improving immune function. The up-and-down motion of bouncing helps to open and close lymphatic valves, allowing the lymph fluid to flow more efficiently. This can contribute to a healthier immune system and better overall well-being.

3. Bone Density Enhancement

As you bounce, the gravitational force changes with each jump, creating a light impact on your bones. This can be especially advantageous for those concerned about bone density loss. Rebounding is known to stimulate bone remodeling, promoting the growth of stronger bones. It’s a valuable exercise for individuals of all ages, especially older adults looking to prevent osteoporosis.

4. Core Strengthening

Maintaining balance and stability on the trampoline engages your core muscles. With consistent rebounding, you can tone and strengthen your abdominal and back muscles. A strong core not only helps with posture but also provides a solid foundation for other physical activities.

5. Stress Reduction

Exercise, in general, is a great stress reliever, and rebounding is no exception. The repetitive motion and the rush of endorphins that come with it can help alleviate stress and improve your mood. It’s a playful way to release tension and clear your mind after a long day.

6. Joint Health

Unlike high-impact exercises that can strain joints, rebounding offers a low-impact option that’s gentle on your joints. The cushioning effect of the trampoline reduces the risk of joint injuries, making it suitable for individuals with joint pain or arthritis. Regular rebounding can improve joint mobility and flexibility.

7. Weight Management

Rebounding is an effective calorie-burning activity. The constant bouncing engages multiple muscle groups, revs up your metabolism, and aids in weight management. It’s a versatile workout that can be tailored to different fitness levels and goals.

8. Improved Coordination and Balance

Maintaining stability while bouncing challenges your coordination and balance skills. Over time, these skills can improve, benefiting your overall physical performance and reducing the risk of falls, especially in older individuals.

9. Cognitive Enhancement

Believe it or not, rebounding can also have positive effects on your brain. The increased blood flow and oxygen delivery that come with cardiovascular exercise can enhance cognitive function, including memory and focus. Bouncing on a trampoline might just be the fun brain boost you didn’t know you needed.

10. Convenience and Enjoyment

Rebounding offers the convenience of being a home-based exercise. You don’t need a large space to set up a mini trampoline, and you can fit in a quick workout whenever you have a few spare minutes. The playful nature of bouncing can also make your workout sessions more enjoyable, encouraging consistency in your routine.

In a world where staying active is essential for overall health, rebounding presents itself as a versatile and enjoyable option. From cardiovascular fitness and bone density enhancement to stress reduction and cognitive enhancement, the benefits of rebounding are as diverse as they are impressive. Whether you’re seeking a low-impact exercise, a creative way to boost your lymphatic system, or an effective stress reliever, bouncing on a mini trampoline offers something for everyone.

Remember, as with any new exercise, it’s important to start slowly and listen to your body.
So, why not add a little bounce to your life and reap the rewards of this fun and effective workout?

Your health and well-being will thank you for it!

Summer Detox: Cleanse and Rejuvenate with Nature’s Gifts

With the arrival of summer, it’s the perfect time to embrace the beauty of nature and revitalize your body and mind. The warm weather and abundance of fresh produce offer an excellent opportunity for a summer detox. By harnessing the power of nature’s gifts, you can cleanse your body, boost your energy levels, and rejuvenate from within. In this blog post, we will explore how you can embark on a summer detox journey, using natural remedies and wholesome foods to promote overall wellness.

Hydrate with Infused Water:
Start your summer detox by hydrating your body with infused water. Simply add slices of fresh fruits like lemon, cucumber, or mint leaves to a pitcher of water. These infused waters not only provide a refreshing taste but also offer vitamins, antioxidants, and hydration that promote detoxification and help flush out toxins.

Include Detoxifying Herbs:
Incorporate detoxifying herbs into your diet to support your body’s natural cleansing processes. Herbs like dandelion root, burdock root, and milk thistle aid in liver detoxification and promote healthy digestion. Enjoy them as herbal teas or add them to your meals for a cleansing boost.

Embrace Fresh and Raw Foods:
Summer is the season of abundant fresh produce, making it easier to incorporate raw and nutrient-rich foods into your detox plan. Load up on colorful fruits and vegetables like berries, watermelon, leafy greens, and cucumbers. These foods are high in fiber, antioxidants, and enzymes that support digestion and detoxification. Check out your local farmer’s markets

Prioritize Green Smoothies:
Kickstart your mornings with a nourishing green smoothie. Blend together leafy greens like spinach or kale with fruits, such as pineapple, mango, or banana. Add a tablespoon of chia seeds or flaxseeds for added fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Green smoothies provide a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to fuel your detox journey.

Sweat it Out:
Take advantage of the sunny weather and engage in activities that make you sweat. Whether it’s a vigorous workout, a hike in nature, or a rejuvenating yoga session, sweating helps eliminate toxins through your skin. Remember to stay hydrated and replenish your electrolytes with natural beverages like coconut water.

Try Dry Brushing:
Incorporate dry brushing into your daily self-care routine. Before showering, use a natural bristle brush to gently exfoliate your skin in circular motions, starting from your feet and moving upward. Dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, improves blood circulation, and helps remove dead skin cells, promoting detoxification and leaving your skin glowing.

Practice Mindful Eating:
During your summer detox, cultivate a mindful eating practice. Slow down and savor each bite, paying attention to the flavors and textures of your food. Chew thoroughly and avoid distractions like screens or eating on the go. Mindful eating allows you to connect with your body’s cues, promote digestion, and prevent overeating.

Herbal Teas for Detoxification:
Incorporate herbal teas known for their detoxifying properties. Nettle tea supports kidney function, while ginger tea aids digestion and reduces inflammation. Sip on herbal teas throughout the day to stay hydrated and support your body’s detoxification processes.

Journal and Reflect:
Take time for self-reflection during your summer detox. Journaling allows you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and intentions during this transformative process. Write down your goals, experiences, and any insights gained along the way. This practice can help deepen your connection with yourself and enhance your overall well-being.

Embrace the beauty of summer and embark on a detox journey that harnesses the power of nature’s gifts. By hydrating with infused water, incorporating detoxifying herbs, enjoying fresh and raw foods, and engaging in mindful practices, you can cleanse and rejuvenate your body and mind. Remember, a summer detox is not about restrictive diets but rather embracing wholesome, nourishing foods and holistic self-care practices. Listen to your body, honor your needs, and let nature’s gifts support your journey to wellness and vitality.
