i want this platform to encompass more aspects of my life and provide an even realer view. expect the usual fitnessing and making weird coffee drinks, but also more of my life outside the gym, my boyfriend, our dog Kona, traveling, lake weekends, drinky drinkin, all the fun having, and just flying around in space trying to live my best life
my website will still be runonorganic.com until my domain expires at the end of the year, at which time i may decide to only keep my social channels and discontinue the site. we’ll see on that one!

If we aren’t connected on social media yet, come find me! Would love to chat and talk!

Now Foods Immersion Event Recap

This post is sponsored by Fitfluential on behalf of NOW Foods.

NOW Foods Immersion Event​

NOW Foods was generous enough to fly out + accommodate a handful of bloggers and writers this year in order to allow us to get a deeper look into how their products are sourced + manufactured + tested + brought to shelves of health food stores all over.

I am at a loss for words on how to best summarize this trip, but I thought it would be the realest + clearest to share notes that I took as the trip transpired. They are essentially bullet point style quotes and factoids. This is how my brain works, so,  this is how I write!

What stood out the most to me about my experience at NOW Foods was the quality of the people and the mindfulness + attention to detail with production. The neatest thing that blogging has brought me is a priceless set of experiences. I’ve met some incredible people on this trip, and that experience has enriched my life. There’s something about being thrown together with a bunch of people you’ve never met that awakens the human spirit. We gravitate to conversations where we find our commonplace. We feel profoundly connected thru this experience.

The coolest part of that is the staff at NOW Foods was a part of that. It wasn’t just the bloggers that I connected to. It was the people that make up the NOW Foods Team as well.

I think you’ll be able to tell how good of a time we had by these photos….

 

In regards to the quality of NOW Products as a whole (which I’m sure a bunch of you consumers are wondering about!), I felt assured and confident after seeing the rigorous testing that is done on the batches of supplements + food + beauty products that are produced. It’s impressive how much work is put into maintaining clean + pure products when they have such a large number of SKUs.

Perhaps the most profound thought I had in regards to product quality that I wanted to make sure I mentioned in this post was that: having an organic certification stamped on your label is not everything. It’s about: where are these ingredients sourced from + how are they grown + how are they processed? That ultimately dictates what the product ends up being. Not a label. It’s about the care that’s put into the whole sourcing to manufacturing process, from start to finish.

I say this because I know many people may overlook NOW initially because they don’t see the USDA Organic label on the packaging. Well, I’m here to tell you that I have witnessed many brands that throw the word “organic” around, but what they are doing is using that word, but then not practicing it. Whereas there are plenty of products that are not labeled as organic but are tested for pesticide content. Every brand is different, but it’s something to consider.

I am SO excited for the generous boatload of goodies that NOW provided to me (they even shipped it from the event to my home). It’s about $350 in value and loaded with supplements ranging from a Women’s probiotic to a Plant Protein powder to a Blender. The even-better news? They want to give one away to you!

To Enter:

-Just leave me a comment! (That. Is. It!)

Feel free to be funny and creative. You can leave a comment on here or Instagram or Facebook. All are awesomely acceptable!

I will notify the winner on 5/16 (one week from today!)

 

 

 

Maty’s Healthy Products Review

This is a review of Maty’s Healthy Products including their organic cough syrup and vapor rub.

Maty’s Healthy Products

Overall Rating: images

About Maty’s:

“At Maty’s, we believe Mother Nature provides so many powerful, healing ingredients that are safe, effective, and don’t require a doctor’s visit to get access to them. Our ancestors knew this and alleviated minor symptoms using substances available to them. These home remedies were effective and in many cases worked even better than modern drugs and medications. Our whole-food ingredients really do make the difference.

We combine modern knowledge with age old healing ingredients to produce healthy, natural products that are safe and effective. These ingredients don’t simply cover up the symptoms, but actually enhance your body’s healing power.

We never use artificial preservatives, color additives or sweeteners and there is no corn, dairy, wheat, soy or yeast in our products.”

My Thoughts:

I am fortunate that I do not get sick often. It’s been quite a while since something was ailing me so badly that I needed to take cough syrup or apply a vapor rub. Though I don’t find myself needing these products often, I love that there are organic options available for me to look to when needed.

Also, for those with kids, it’s hard to accurately describe the peace of mind it gives you to know that what you’re using with your children is free of crummy ingredients and is actually good for their little growing bodies.

I’m pretty psyched at the ultra clean ingredient list of the cough syrup. The obvious improvement I’d make with the vapor rub is to make the ingredients organic. If you’re going to commit to using natural ingredients like essential oils, I figure you may as well use the best. Know that is my opinion with a very discerning eye. These products are so incredibly far ahead of what you typically find in the drug store, there is truly no comparison.

Other drug store products for treating the same symptoms are potentially doing more harm than good, while these Maty’s products are healing effectively by means of organic, plant-derived ingredients.

I tried these products not needing them. In other words, I was sick and needing relief–so I cannot fully comment on the effectiveness of them alleviating discomfort and pain. But, I did find the cough syrup to be very calming & soothing after drinking it. It also has good stay power as far as keeping your throat coated. The honey flavor really tastes nice and isn’t hard to palate.

I love what the vapor rub does. I could see myself using this just to feel revived, awakened and rejuvenated. The minty, fresh aroma and experience of the eucalyptus, peppermint and wintergreen trio is absolutely intoxicating. It really opens up your airways and even livens up your eyes and makes you look more awake.

Amazing Grass Greens Holiday Immunity Boost Review

This is a review of Amazing Grass’s Greens powders that are ideal for boosting your immunity over the holidays.

Amazing Grass Immunity Boosters

During this time of year, isn’t it funny how even the healthiest of us may get the sniffles or feel a little under the weather at times? It’s frustrating to get sick. Luckily, there’s a whole lot in your hands as far as what you can do to prepare.

Enter: Amazing Grass.

This wonderful, quality-focused brand has been on my radar & blogging atmosphere for several years now–& for good reason. They produce organic, raw, nutrient-packed green superfoods that are pure, nourishing and very convenient to add to a shaker bottle or blend into a smoothie (just a few of the uses!).

The coolest thing about using these products to help boost that holiday (well, all-year round, really!) immunity is that they are so practical for everyday use. Just one serving a day can give you a sufficient boost to keep your nutrient intake high to fend off sickness & to avoid that winter fog that can come over too many instances of indulgence.

Most of these products are available to purchase in so many local health food stores and can also be found online. They make it really easy for you to reap the benefits.

Here’s a little run down on two of their biggest immunity-targeting blends:

Green SuperFood Tangerine Immunity Defense – consists of six potent ingredients, each individually known for having immunity support benefits, including Organic Proprietary Mushroom Blend, Organic Olive Leaf, Organic Elderberry, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Astragalus and Andrographis.

  • The Vitamin C comes from ascorbic acid and Acerola Cherry Extract. 1000mg of Vitamin C is the same amount found in one serving of Emergen-C. The Vitamin C level in Immunity Tangerine is also equivalent to the amount in approximately 40 whole tangerines.

Green SuperFood Alkalize & Detox – specifically designed to simultaneously help the body achieve ideal pH levels while ridding it of toxins to allow for optimal function and organ restoration.

  • Containing over 20 different alkalizing and detoxifying agents including beet root, parsley, turmeric and apple pectin, each ingredient in Alkalize & Detox is specifically formulated to alkalize by bringing the body to a more natural pH balance, while simultaneously detoxing by cleansing tissues of toxins and pollutants.
