FOLLOWING

 

Dr. Mark Hyman. He is a leader in the field of Functional Medicine as well as an author, and physician. He promotes healing through food and finding the root cause, which is something that I strongly believe in. 

“Food is literally the most powerful medicine you have available to control your health. I want you to think of your kitchen as your pharmacy. It all starts with taking out the junk, and putting in the good stuff.” 

 

STYLE

 

Currently obsessed with my new Lake Pajamas. I have never really been a pajama person, but I am certain that when I get a few more pairs of these I will be converted.  Seriously, they might be made from the softest cotton in the entire world.

SKINCARE

 

This one goes out to TEB and his love for the new Counterman line. He did a full review over on my IGTV.  Counterman was made for specifically for the skincare needs of men. Men have thicker and more oily skin than women. Their skin is tougher due to slower cell turnover and constant shaving. Men have larger pores and follicle size. His fav from the line is the Cooling Aftershave Tonic.  

We often don’t think of men needing safer products, but they in fact do. Men can experience hormone disruption and lowered sperm count because of harmful ingredients, and that is scary. There are 8 curated products to choose from! Shop the full line here.

KITCHEN

 

Honestly, I am not sure how I went 30 years of my life without these silicone baking mats. Before I was using the If You Care parchment paper which is great, but these mats are SO much better and no waste! I got two of the half-sheet mats and one quarter sheet, and they have already gotten so many uses!

Toasted Coconut Granola

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you had a nice, refreshing weekend! We always do some batch cooking on Sunday as well as prepare TEB’s lunches for the week! So, yesterday, I made this yummy toasted coconut granola to have on hand for various things this week!

A lot of granolas at the grocery store tend to have lots of added junk in them, and are often $12-15. There are a couple of brands I trust, but 9 times out of 10, I’d rather make my own if I can!
