Purity Organic Coffee Review

This post is a review of Purity Organic Coffee’s products.

Purity Coffee

About:

Purity Coffee is completely focused on health from bean to bag.  We roast for the highest levels of antioxidants and the lowest levels of acrylamide.  Our coffee is lab-tested to be free of molds, mycotoxins and pesticides. One of the easiest changes anyone can make to their diet is to switch to healthier coffee!

Over 19,000 studies have shown that coffee is beneficial for general health and longevity and specifically for heart disease, liver disease, Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes.  Coffee is the richest source of antioxidants in the western diet and contains over 850 compounds (that aren’t present in tea or those sugar-filled caffeine energy drinks).

My Experience:

Coffee is such a massive part of our culture. I’m a big fan. I’m also super passionate about letting you guys know about brands that are growing coffee with massive regards to quality + purity. If you read thru their mission above, it’s easy to tell that they are doing coffee with the utmost regard for the health implications. I have a lot of appreciation for this. It may come as no surprise at this point, but it’s key to realize that (like food), not all coffee is grown equally. Most of it is grown with profit as the main goal, versus health and vitality. Thus, most coffee consumed is rife with pesticides and mold, due to the less than optimal growing conditions and processing practices.

The reason it’s important to me to have organic coffee is because it’s something I consume 6-7 days out of the week. Because I consume it so often, the quality is important to me. In general, that’s my rule of thumb with buying things organic. I don’t fret if 100% of what I consume is organic, but if it’s something I consume daily, then it moves high up on my priority list to seek an organic option.

We have a great Burr grinder at home so we opted for their bags of Whole Bean coffee, but they also have a K-Cup option for Keurig users. This coffee has a rich, smooth taste from the darker roasted beans and is delicious black or with your favorite healthy additives (we love superfoods and plant based milks).

I’m generally just very stoked to know about this brand. We don’t buy a lot of bagged coffees because we do a lot of our own roasting of green coffee beans at home (and most bagged coffees are cruddy and/or it’s hard to tell what’s in them and how they’ve been grown). However, Purity Coffee is changing how we view coffee. It will now be my go-to for our house and a great option for gifting to friends and family.

YogaSmoga Twistie Tank Review

This is a review of the YogaSmoga Twistie Tank.

  

YogaSmoga

Overall Rating: 4 Stars

I’ve checked out & reviewed a pair of workout capris and a headband from YogaSmoga once before and found the quality & comfort of their pieces is sublime. The Run Jump ‘n’ Play Capris are still one of my favorite pairs hanging in my closet and they get a ton of use. You can check out that whole review & the photos with it here.

So, with this tank, I’ll get the teensy bit of bad news out of out the way first: tanks with a flowy/loose bottom seem to be the only ones that work for me. Tighter fitting ones (like this one) always ride up on my waist (likely because of my shape–it’s not a product flaw) and are not suitable for me to run in because they don’t stay put.

However, judging this tank just as it is designed to fit, it’s pretty freaking awesome. (Is this making sense?) Basically, I will live in this tank around the house and for things not exercise related. I just won’t work out in it often because of how it moves on my torso.

I was very impressed by the feel of the material and how the built-in shelf provides enough support that I can wear this tank comfortable out of the house without a bra–love that! The color combination is pretty & vibrant & I love the design of the straps in the back. It’s an excellent staple piece to have in your closet to wear even as a cami. If this tank would work for around-the-house AND for running, it would get my highest rating.

As expected, excellent-quality product from YogaSmoga & I’m sure many gals who are tight tank fans will adore this one.

Recipe: Carrot Cake Protein Smoothie!

This post includes a recipe for a carrot cake protein smoothie!

Hey Everyone!

I’m off to the gym so I am keeping this brief–but this smoothie was so good that I have to share with you! This was a spontaneous creation (& Holy freaking cow–it’s better than the real thing).

I like to wing it in the kitchen (no measuring!) and this smoothie was done that way…
