Get a Nutritious Breakfast Fast

GrandyOats Granola

I am constantly struggling with getting a nutritious breakfast that’s doesn’t take long to make.

But I’ve found the solution in GrandyOats – granola that’s handmade and homemade by a group of in Maine and made with as little impact to the environment as possible.

How great is that?

Their packaged granola comes in a variety of flavours – Classic, Cinnamon Apple, Chocolate Peanut, Berries Jubilee, Mainely Maple, Consciousness Raisin and Cranberry-Chew Low Fat – and have Certified Organic ingredients.

They come in oil free, wheat free, low fat and vegan varieties.

I tried the Classic, which has oats, honey, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, expeller pressed high oleic sunflower oil, sesame seeds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, coconut, wheat bran, walnuts, vanilla and sea salt.

It is hearty and delicious and keeps my energy up for the entire morning!

GrandyOats also offers bulk nuts, seeds and trail mix.

There are a lot of cereals out there, but this one’s delicious and made with much love and with respect for our environment.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

Take Years Off Your Appearance Overnight

Zelens Skin Science Cellular DNA Protection Day Cream

I get to try a lot of skin creams and while a lot of ones that I’ve chosen have worked well, Zelens Skin Science Cellular DNA Protection Day Cream is one of the few that I’ve used and woken up to a much better face!

I won’t get into the full scientific specifics, but this cream basically works as a defense against all the pollution and environmental issues that you face everyday (UVA/UVB etc) and simultaneously hydrates your skin at the DNA molecule level.

It has ingredients like and ginkgo biloba, green tea, honeysuckle extract, jojoba oil, rosehip, shea butter, wheatgerm extract and vitamins A, C and E, to mention just a few and is made for all skin types.

This light cream will transform your face and even out your skintone. I actually went out without makeup for the first time since I was a young teenager after using it.

It takes just a quick application each morning and you’ll see the difference in your skin immediately.

Get Your Omega-3s – Without Having to Consume Cans of Tuna and Whole Fish!

Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Purified Fish Oil

You know by now that getting enough Omega-3s is important to your overall health and general well-being. But how do you incorporate all of that healthy fat and fish into your diet with your busy schedule?

Easy, take Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Purified Fish Oil!

They are the best on the market in my opinion. They use the freshest fish, which means you won’t get a fishy taste or be burping up anything fishy. You can take it in liquid form, but I like the capsules for ease and efficiency.

Taking them will help keep your energy up, increase your memory, help you maintain a positive mood and keep your heart healthy and your joints in shape.

And Nordic Naturals is committed to giving you the best product, which means that they offer you safe supplements. You won’t find environmental toxins in their products and they are reducing their carbon footprint by producing all of their literature on recycled paper, using inks made from soy, and their packing peanuts are made from natural cornstarch, making them 100% biodegradable and landfill safe.

You can read about why they suggest fish oil over flax, their policy on overfishing and what the mercury levels are in various fish at their website.

And check out their entire line while you’re there. They have products for your children and pets as well.

Take care of your whole family with Nordic Naturals. You’ll be better for it.

Protect Your Shoes

smartheel Heel Protectors

I don’t know about you, but I wear my high heels in most any weather. And you can tell, because the heel gets all tattered and torn.

But I found a product that protects your heels so that you can pound the pavement AND have glorious heels.

smartheel Heel Protectors are great - just measure how high your heel is, cut the smartheel to the correct height and slip on.

Then remove them when you get to your destination.

There are various heights and widths available to fit the shoes you want to protect most and they come in clear and black along with a little case to keep them in.
