Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code

About Laird Superfood:

It all started with a cup of coffee. 

A note from co-founder, Laird Hamilton:

“I’ve always been the sort of person that looks a little deeper at the things I consume on a daily basis. Coffee, for instance, is a morning go-to for so many people, including myself. I wondered how I could improve it.

Growing up surfing and trying to maintain consistent energy was tough and I was in need of a serious boost to keep me energized. I started to add functional fats to my coffee to fuel me throughout the day. It was more of an experiment really, and it proved to be so powerful that I started making cups of my “special coffee” for all of my friends too. Those friends noticed a positive difference and asked me what I had done to their coffee.

I realized that I had tapped into a way to help myself and my friends perform at their best using simple, clean, whole-food ingredients, and that’s how Laird Superfood came to be. For me, it’s about creating essential everyday products that are accessible for everyone. I love the Ohana we’re building and am so grateful for everyone who is a part of it.”

A Note From Founder, Laird Hamilton:

A Note from Co-Founder, Laird’s Wife, Gabby Reece:

Our promise: 

We are committed to the consistency and quality of the products we produce. We believe that the foods you eat should be as good for the earth as they are for you. And we believe that food should enable you to perform at the highest level, no matter what you’re doing. We promise to deliver on these values with every product we create, every day.

From a young age (approaching middle school) as highly motivated young athlete, I found myself really looking up to a few professional athletes that live their lives in a way that i aspired to. Their personal training philosophies, outlook on life and approach to nutrition.

These professional athletes are Laird Hamilton & Gabby Reece. They are both uniquely gifted in their own right,  endlessly transparent, light and unveiled–and they’ve been partners + endured heaps of transformation over 20 years of marriage.

Through the years since middle school, i’ve watched them both evolve from afar as athletes, parents, professionals and business people.

When i saw they were creating Laird Superfood, I just literally couldn’t have been more stoked. Such a no-brainer. So, here i am now, 7+ years into running a blog platform comprised of all the things i believe fuel a good life. I’ve written over 400 blog posts which means i’ve tried and reviewed a whole ton of products.

One of very few out of that 400, Laird Superfood products are a mainstay + a big focus of mine now.

These guys are in a league of their own. I couldn’t be more proud to support Laird + Gabby and their brand. I even checked off a bucketlist item at the 2019 Expo West and got to meet both of them. So cool. Both of them are supremely present and authentic in real life; just as I would have imagined.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience

In a few words: exceptional quality, exceptional feels. If you read my backstory with this incredible brand (above), then it’s clear that I’m a huge advocate for the people behind the products. The products themselves are a big heaping pile of icing on the (paleo) cake 🙂

The best way to articulate how much I value these products is to walk you thru a day with me.

How I Use Laird Superfood Products in a Full Day

First thing upon waking, chug a big glass of water and get the coffee making started. We mix the medium + dark roast whole bean coffees together, grind them, then brew the coffee in our percolator (our current brew method of choice). I appreciate that with these organic beans, I don’t have to worry about ingesting pesticides or any other harmful chemicals in my cup of coffee.

Coffee Brewing

When the coffee is ready (it always lights up the kitchen with the most robust, mouth watering scent), I grab my barrel mug out of the cabinet, add a heaping tablespoon of superfood creamer (I rotate the flavors; they are all awesome–but I’ve been loving the Pumpkin Spice and the Chocolate Mint lately), then I fill up my barrel mug about 3/4 of the way with the fresh coffee.

The barrel mug is so awesome for mixing things into your coffee. It’s been my staple mug for daily use (the rest of the mugs in our cabinet are sad about this, but there’s no comparison as far as capacity and functionality).

Also, I’ve been stoked to try out their new liquid creamers and have added them into the rotation as well!

Mixing

Next, I use the dual speed power frother to mix the creamer into the coffee. It only take a second and then I’m ready to drink it! The creamer mixes in so easily this way. You can also use a spoon to mix; as long as your coffee is warm/hot, the creamer will dissolve easily.

Oh–and I do add a few ice cubes to my coffee because it’s usually piping hot and I want to drink it right away.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience (continued)

Commuting/Driving

Then, when I’m leaving the house for something (nowadays it’s not as frequent but it’s usually to grocery shop, go to the dog park or head to the gym), I pour another serving of the coffee + creamer into my insulated mug andI can guarantee it will stay warm for as long as it takes me to drink it.

Also, this is a great time to use the Instafuel if you did not brew coffee at home that morning. All you do is mix the coffee + creamer powder mixture with hot water and you’re set!

Post Workout

After I finish my workout (I mostly do Crossfit workouts at our gym here in south Kansas City), I add a tablespoon of the pineapple mango Hydrate powder to my water and drink it shortly after finishing movement.

I notice that this helps me not feel completely drained after a workout in which I put a lot of effort in and lose a lot of sweat.

Equips Me for Each Day Ahead

In summary, the good fats + clean coffee get me fueled up to take on the day and the hydrate powder helps replenish my electrolytes and re-up my mineral intake after sweating so much (I’m a heavy sweater).

There is a noticeable difference for me in how I feel when I am regularly incorporating these products into my daily “routine”–in quotes because every day looks a bit different, but I do like to move my body at least once a day, even if it’s just working on mobility/stretching.

Nighttime

I aim to stay away from caffeine after noon, so if I want something warm to drink, I make an herbal tea and add a scoop of the superfood creamer to make a sort of fatty tea latte. I find that this helps me feel satiated thru the evening.

Laird Superfood Review + Coupon Code: My Experience (continued)

Aquamin: A Thoughtfully Selected Ingredient

An added perk that can really give you a glimpse into the thought that is put into these products; the creamers and hydrate products all contain a marine algae-derived calcium called Aquamin.

My understanding is that heavy coffee consumption over time can deplete us in certain vitamins/minerals (I’m thinking this might have something to do with caffeine causing the bladder to be more spastic).

So, to combat that and make sure that’s not an issue for you, Laird Superfood adds Aquamin to all of these products. I just think that’s super cool and good to know that you’re getting even more good fuel in these drinks/products that you may initially think.

The Laird Superfood Quality

I’m a huge advocate for Laird Superfood because I believe in the people, the products and I believe they can be beneficial to you, too. The quality and thoughtfulness of the sourcing will have you feeling good about the caliber of the fuel you’re putting into your body.

This post is my Araza Beauty Organic, Paleo Makeup Review.

Use the code FeelMoreGooder to get 10% your order!

Here are the products I’ve tried:

 

 

Sweet Mint Healthy Lip Balm

About:

You know you’ve found a good lip balm when you don’t immediately lose it. That’s this one. A sweet, minty treat for your lips, made with a lush blend of certified organic ingredients. One swipe will leave your lips silky, tingly, and nourished. Trust us, this one’s a keeper.

Citrus Illuminating Raw Beauty Oil

About:

Give this juicy little oil a squeeze. A colorful blend of citrus and cold-pressed organic oils restores natural balance and brings life back to damaged, stressed skin. Then things get really exotic when a mix of green tea, borage seed, sea buckthorn, jojoba oil, and sweet orange join forces to combat the forces of aging. It’s rich, it’s dewy, and it’s good for your skin – any way you slice it.

Coconut Cream All-In-One Foundation

About:

Powerful and delicate. Strong and smooth. A foundation that’s more than skin deep – giving you even coverage while improving your skin health with probiotics, skin superfoods, and a decadent blend of certified organic oils. Hard-working ingredients nourish below the surface, while above, a dewey, vibrant finish illuminates your natural glow. One fuzzy tropical fruit reincarnated as a featherlight magical skin charm. When we say, all-in-one, we mean it.

Jojoba Infused Mineral Powder Foundation

About:

Ever heard of jojoba? It’s a silly word that’s fun to say. JO-JO-BA! But more importantly, it’s an oil known for its incredible moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. And this powder foundation is chocked full of it. With the added superpowers of wild picked araza fruit and neem extracts, your skin will be nourished from the inside while pure silk powder provides a luxurious feel on the outside. A divine complexion starts with jojoba.

Primer + Finishing Translucent Clay Powder

About:

Sometimes the night calls for a full face of makeup. Other times, a light dusting will do. That’s where this comes in – an ultra-fine, silky smooth powder that diffuses light and creates a flawless, airbrushed finished. Certified organic ingredients keep your skin healthy while the translucent finish works to erase the look of imperfections or wrinkles. Say goodbye to excess oil and shine, and say hello to powder that’s as light and airy as you’ll feel.

______________________________________________

Araza Beauty Organic Makeup Review

Wow. The all-in-one coconut cream foundation has completely changed by clean beauty game. If you are a heavy sweater like I am, this is YOUR foundation. It stays put, truly doesn’t go anywhere (no running down your face with sweat) and of course has the purest ingredients; nothing artificial to make this foundation perform.

This foundation provides a dewy finish, so I love to use their jojoba infused mineral powder foundation on my most oily areas so that those areas don’t get too shiny. Also, I use the translucent powder similarly when I don’t need more color on my face, but shine coverage.

The sweet mint healthy lip balm + citrus illuminating beauty oil were sample sizes, so I didn’t have a huge amount of time to try them over time. But, I would definetly repurpose the lip balm. It’s minty goodness on your face; I love that refreshing zing from mint. It’s also super nourishing. The beauty oil did a good job of sinking mostly into my skin after application; which was nice, so that it wasn’t coming off on my pillow at night.

Overall, LOVE this brand. A few of the products I tried are immediate repurchases (they did gift me a round of product first, so perhps it’s more like an initial purchase, but you know what I mean). And the others I will likely purchase when I need more lip balm/face oil.

Big Berkey Water Filter Review

This post contains my Big Berkey Water Filter System Review.

big berkey water filter in kitchen

Big Berkey Water Filter Review

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

About Berkey:

This powerful water filter purifies both treated water and untreated raw water. Including: such sources as remote lakes, streams, stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be substandard at best. Perfect for everyday use, outdoor activities and a must in hostile environments where electricity, water pressure or treated water may not be available.

The versatile Big Berkey Water Filter removes viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites. It also extracts harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222 and trihalomethanes. It also reduces rust, silt, sediment, foul taste and odors and unhealthy minerals such as lead and mercury.

This system is so powerful it can remove red food coloring from water without removing the beneficial minerals your body needs. Virtually no other system can duplicate this performance.

Screen Shot 2018-02-09 at 10.27.42 AM

Specs of the Big Berkey

The Big Berkey is constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel. The system comes complete with two purification elements and utilizes the latest technological advances. This water filter has a storage capacity of about 2.25 gallons (8.5 liters) and when in use it stands 19.25″ in height with a diameter of 8.5″. The upper chamber nests within the lower chamber for transport and stands only 13″ in height.

Configured with two Black Berkey™ Purification Elements the system will purify up to 3 1/2 Gallons (13.3 liters) per hour*. This system can be expanded to use four purification elements and is capable of purifying up to 7 Gallons (26.5 liters) per hour*.

*Flow rate calculated with upper chamber full to top. Flow rate decreases as water level declines.

Big Berkey Water Filter Removes:

The powerful Black Berkey™ purification elements also remove or reduce viruses, pathogenic bacteria, cysts, parasites, harmful or unwanted chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, VOCs, detergents, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, cloudiness, silt, sediment, heavy metals, foul tastes and odors. Yet, they leave in the healthful and beneficial minerals that your body needs.

Why a Berkey Filter?

The water my family and I drink has always been in the forefront of my mind and at the top of my priority list in regards to health. I do not go the bottled water route for a few reasons:

1. Bottled water is typically bottled in questionable plastic (made in large amounts, often containing BPA and other potentially other harmful substances).

2. Bottled water is not cost efficient! Investing in a filter for your home will ultimately save you money and is more convenient, to boot.

3. The water in bottled water sits in that same container for potentially months before it is actually consumed. This means that whatever that plastic is made of is having a gigantic window of time to leach into the water.

Those are a few reasons that made me choose a Big Berkey for my family’s drinking water supply. Berkey also offers fluoride filters (without getting into an elaborate discussion about fluoride–I’ll just say I avoid it).

Benefits of Using a Berkey:

-Takes heavy metals out of our water

-heavy metals cause a multitude of health defects including hormone disruption, brain fog and chronic inflammation)

-Strips contaminants from water so you don’t ingest them

-As scary as it sounds: parasites, pharmaceuticals, environmental pollutants and mold can all be present in our water supply. Each of those will impact your health negatively, especially through daily exposure through drinking water.

-You’ll experience increased health overall

-I notices that my skin is clearer, I sleep better, my energy levels are higher and my tests came back very low for toxic contamination in my system.

Daily Life With Our Big Berkey

This filter sits in our kitchen and is our source of water for drinking, cooking, making coffee, filling up our dog’s water bowl–you name it. I would say that we use quite a bit of water! I’m frequently making almond milk, brewing coffee, making smoothies and filling up blender bottles. All of these activities require water from that filter.

We keep a big pitcher next to the Berkey for a quick fill up. We usually have to refill the filtering tank every 1-2 days. It’s not inconvenient, and only takes a few minutes a day. All in all, we love our Berkey filter and are happy to have it as a staple in our daily routine.

I recommend this filter to everyone! Even my parents & brother own one.

I highly recommend this filter to anyone–especially families looking for a non-contaminated source of water. This size works well for us! But, Berkey also makes them bigger and also smaller (more portable) with the same thorough filtering. You don’t need to replace the filters until they’ve filtered 3,000 gallons of water, or 6,000 gallons for two filter elements (we have two). For us, I believe it will end up being every 3 years.

Seed Probiotic Review

My first month of Seed’s Daily Synbiotic (Probiotic + Prebiotic) just arrived. Without a doubt, I am so excited. Undoubtedly, it’s so, immensely, admirable that they’re as committed to planetary health as they are to human health.  #ad #accountable 

seed probiotic synbiotic sustainably packaged

Seed is in a league of their own in regards to their commitment to sustainability. Case in point, they offer a Sustainable Refill System that starts with a beautiful glass jar and continues with monthly refills. There is no single-use plastic in sight. In addition, another major bonus is that mushrooms grew the biodegradable packaging the product arrived in. It decomposes in soil within 30 days. How incredible is that? Talk about forward thinking.

seed probiotic synbiotic sustainable packaging

Seed Probiotic – Daily Synbiotic

Scientists examined two strains in their Daily Synbiotic formulation in a study for their beneficial effects. With consideration for individuals taking Seed Probiotic regularly, they tracked symptom improvement such as relieving intestinal discomfort, bloating, and pain. Healthy pooping means healthy bacteria means healthy body! Are you with me?!

seed probiotic synbiotic sustainable packaging

Daily Synbiotic is a proprietary formulation; revered scientists developed it and it contains 20+ clinically-studied probiotic strains & probiotic compounds. Each of them was developed for whole-body health (not just digestive health!) including heart, skin, immune, and metabolic health.

Particularly, I love that it came with a glass travel case. Especially, it’s perfect for commuting, roadtrips and flying I’m excited to use it and reuse it for months to come, along with telling all of my travel buddies about it.

seed probiotic synbiotic capsule
Seed uses a 2-in-1 capsule to protect against stomach acid and ensure that the probiotic makes it to your colon. (The outer capsule is the prebiotic, the inner capsule is the probiotic.)

This is the probiotic that ironman phenom, 50-something-year-old Rich Roll discussed 4+ times on his podcast. If it’s good enough for him, that means something to me for sure. A great deal of thought, time, research and well-studied individuals contributed to making this product happen. If you’re interested in seeing what I mean, head over to their website for all the sciencey details.
