Growing up in the middle of siblings made celebrating personal milestones hard because of the lack of recognition. So when I was finally old enough to drive, I gas’d up my car and decided to make a celebration of my own, Birthday-palooza. Instead of celebrating my birthday for one night, why not celebrate it for an entire month? Whether it means traveling somewhere, going out to dinners, bar crawling, trying new things – the options were endless. As long as I was surrounded with my people, I felt special and celebrated.
When I was younger, you would never find a bottle of honey anywhere in our household. Besides the fact that the word “healthy” never crossed my parents mind, honey to them was extra and totally unnecessary. I mean, why would we have honey when you can just put butter on top of whatever you were eating. And no, not the good grass fed dairy type. The I can’t believe it’s not butter processed garbage. I never had a bottle of honey in my kitchen until I moved out and researched the serious benefits of why it should be a permanent pantry staple.
PSA ALERT FOR ALL PALEO/AIP’ers: A dairy free-clean ingredient ice cream shop exists!!!!!! Stumbling onto this ice cream shop was seriously the BEST thing that happened our last California trip.
Hell yeah we’re on Healthy Quickie series #2. This month’s topic is kombucha. I’m sure by now you at least know what kombucha is…otherwise bravo to you for reading a post where you didn’t know what you were about to read. I started my kombucha journey about two years ago when I first began repairing my leaky gut and because I’ve seen some MAJOR improvements since I began, I’ll never get off the probiotic train.
Every time we go on vacation, our biggest question tends to be : do we rent a hotel or do we air bnb it? For all of our trips, we take into consideration the city, time of year, the weather, and the days of the week. Before our last getaway to California, we were faced with that same question. However, although we have visited SoCal many times, there are two main reasons why you should stay in a hotel while visiting La Jolla:
One of the most commonly asked questions I’ve gotten since my miscarriage is “when you going to start trying again?” Let me tell you how enraging that question is. I mean SHIT, it took my body 3 months after miscarrying to lose the HcGs, it took my mind / confidence even longer to heal (up until late March to be exact), and we lost our adopted puppy from Distemper in February. Of course trying again for our Rainbow Baby has been a priority, but can you cut a girl some slack?
I’m officially coining this term “a gallon (of water) a day, keeps the dr away.” As I write this article, I’m sitting here bloated AF from eating way too much yesterday. There was really only one non diet compliant type of food that I ate, but holy hell, does it wreck my stomach and make my body all around sore. Looking back at my prior detox article, I was trying to figure out how to help my current situation. But, I’ve realized that I left off one key thing to successful detoxing….aqua !
