Falling Off the Wagon

So I'm back on the meditation train again. The truth is I love the feeling of meditation and being alone with my thoughts. More truth, it's hard for me to make myself do it. So I go through times where I do it everyday for a week or two feel fantastic and then forget about it. Let me know if this sounds familiar? I think at times it's scary being alone with your thoughts. Especially when the world seems upside down which is when we need it the most. I don't really beat myself up about not me...

Protein Supplement Ingredients that you can Trust

Unfortunately I wouldn't say you can actually 'trust' many supplements in the protein industry, certainly not without reading ingredients. Which is why we got into the supplement industry in the first place. Colouring, msg/preservatives, artificial tastes, and flavours.

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?

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...

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...

Gut Health and Fermented Ingredients

It's important to read the ingredients when it comes to digestion, gut health and fermented ingredients. Fermented ingredients are hard to find because better quality ingredients cost more to make which means the company will make less of a margin at the end of the day. And let's face it, when it comes to most protein supplements, more about their bottom line than improving health. The lack of quality ingredients at the grocery store and with so many not reading the ingredients - we hav...
