Hi loves!

I know what you’re thinking. A post that isn’t a Marvelous In My Monday, What I Ate Wednesday or #strangebutgood related.  I haven’t been the best blogger I know that, but I actually want to dedicate more time to my blog and give you guys more useful information as opposed to just snap shots of my boring eats. I’ve come to the realization that I want this blog to turn into more of an informative blog because as I am learning how to live a healthy balanced life, I personally am looking for reliable information and I’m sure you are all too. So why not share it?

This is why I love sharing products I am using and loving with you guys, because I think if I am enjoying something you may all enjoy it as well.

With that being said check out a few of these awesome products I am loving lately.

1. Click Caramel Protein

2. Crunchies Dried Fruit and Veggies
3. The Great Low Carb Bread Company Squares (so sad I am out of these – ordering more ASAP)
4. Growing Naturals Protein (the pea protein makes the best protein frosting – it was so good I went through my canister in no time, but I am still loving using the brown rice protein in baking – like these Carob Pumpkin Donuts)

Now for some link love. Here are a few things I’ve found interesting recently.

Current Obsessions:

How To Brew Kombucha – Carla Birnburg – Guest post from Lindsay Cotter

I recently started brewing my own kombucha and am obsessed with it. I followed Lindsay’s tutorial on how to begin brewing which was so helpful.  I also bugged her personally with tons of questions – this girl was so sweet to put up with me, but now that I have the hang of the process, I am obsessed with making my own brew and creating new flavors each time!  This is a great article not only explaining how to brew your own, but also all the health benefits!

How To Make Raw Sauerkraut – The Detoxinista

With the success of brewing my own kombucha, I wanted to explore more into fermenting and growing my own probiotics.  I found this great guide and found out how easy it was to make my own sauerkraut. I’m excited to start fermenting other vegetables as well.

That’s it for now loves. I hope you all have a wonderful relaxing weekend.
