Why We Don’t Sell in Retail or Health Food Stores

The Retail industry is a bit more challenging than one might expect. We recently had the question come in, asking 'why don't you sell in retail or health food stores? So I thought, why explain… When I say 'retail' I mean health food stores. The fact is, we were in retail stores, 26 of them across Canada. And to be honest it was misery. The only way I could think to expand in retail was to cold call, and I absolutely hated every second of it. Retail managers would rarely answer, they s...

We Believe 2021 Will Be Our Best Year Yet

2020 was a tough year for many but I feel in any circumstance or situation we can find the positives and a way to be grateful. First and foremost I said I DO to my best friend. It wasn't the way we planned it but a perfect day is an understatement. We couldn't be more grateful for the love and support, for the people, the weather and every single thing that happened that day and leading up to it. We're grateful for family even though we haven't seen many of them in person recently. We...

Ditching Coffee

https://youtu.be/nvgJ9f7djpY Ditch the Coffee Side effects of Coffee https://youtu.be/hqJqvb4xPY0 Side effects of Coffee One of the main reasons we don't recommend coffee is because of the side effects of it. Many people actually find an increase in anxiety with it, it raises cortisol levels which makes it more challenging to burn body fat. It's also addictive which means getting off of it is a nightmare which includes near migraine headaches. For these reasons alone, we sugg...

How to detox your body through sleep

How to detox your body through sleep is something we rarely think about.  We don’t realize we actually put more stress on our bodies by not getting a restful sleep and if we really want to detox our bodies and reduce stress then getting a good night sleep is very important.   Sleep is so important because this is when we give our bodies have a chance to rest and recover.  We give both our minds and body the opportunity to heal and rejuvenate and if we’re not sleeping well we’re simply not g...

Does it get any easier?

I often get this question…."Does it get any easier? Does health and fitness, do the workouts, food prep, and living this 'lifestyle' ever stop feeling like a constant effort?" My answer is, absolutely, it does. The difficult part isn't the first couple weeks when you see results, it's not even the next couple months when this health journey is still new (and partly exciting). Many of us have been through those 21 day 'fixes', weekend fasts or multi level products that promise to help you...

We Never Close

We like to support local as much as possible, however I noticed just recently that a couple type of local market stores are only open on certain days for certain hours. No judgement here, I mean who knows what they are going through. Maybe they can't afford to staff for example. But I do find it hard to stop in and support them when they are only open a few days a week for certain hours. I also know some of the retails stores have new restrictions at least for the moment, which can be...

With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility

With the uncertainty of so many things - quite honestly it makes us work harder. For a couple reasons. Course there's financial security for us that may be of concern but more so the responsibility for those around us. We have a couple part time workers that help us out, who we want to continue to employ and continue to help however we have been financially. We have our distributors as well, which are always of concern. We want to make sure we're doing right by them, because they are hel...
