Fit Fam Black Friday

We have such an incredible community that we've built over the years, we wanted to find a way to keep it going. Yes, we know you're probably bombarded with Black Friday sales, and truthfully, we don't love them either. Even though it seems like many people do much of their shopping on this day. We actually haven't done a Black Friday Sale in about 5 years. Kinda crazy when you think about it. Getting back to the topic at hand. We wanted to offer something special to you all in the Fit Fam. ...

Why We Chose our Greens and Why you Might Choose Them Too

In Detoxify Yourself on pg 271 I talk about our green and why we too into them. Our greens are actually grown in fresh water, which may not be a concern for everyone but it is for us. And it's the reason we haven't gotten into fish oil yet. I'm not saying we never will be we take careful consideration before we get into any product, and environment certainly plays a role in our decision to move forward with a product or pass on it. Another reason we struggle with the idea of getting into...

Young Living Toothpaste and Deodorant

We had some questions about what we use for 'clean' products. I had a really nice conversation with Amanda actually that I thought was worth sharing here too in case anyone else is interested. On the left you see the Aromabright 'toothpaste' which I actually don't like as toothpaste. This is our deodorant most of the time, especially when I'm not using my rock crystal. And on the right we have the actual toothpaste that we use. It's the whitening brand. Which I really like! If you're i...

The Forgotten About Macro: Antioxidants / Fibre

https://youtu.be/p5isB7K_P-M Most people don’t consider the health benefits when it comes to veggies, which is exactly what this category is. Just before this section I did talk about vegetables but let’s offer a slightly different angle to help you understand the importance here. The reason we call it the forgotten macronutrient is because many people actually and literally forget about it. What’s for dinner, ‘steak and potatoes’. What about a roast, or even ‘fried chicken’, and how ab...

Where do you get your protein from?

https://youtu.be/eU3zXVxaVnw Protein is probably the most difficult macronutrient to discuss simply because we all grew up a certain way and to try and change the thought process is extremely difficult. I’m not trying to change your thought process here, more so, I’m trying to show you that it doesn’t always have to be a certain way simply because that’s what you know. We can get protein from different sources other than from meat or animal sources. But first let me explain the level...

Carbs: Eat this not that

https://youtu.be/RkD6wAglJbI Carbohydrates often get a bad wrap because of the new diets out there where people try to avoid carbs all together. It’s extremely difficult to avoid carbs all together. Which makes restrictive diets that request few or no carbs at all seemingly impossible to follow. Think about it, we have carbs in the morning for toast, oatmeal, french toast, or pancakes (which is usually created with a wheat product). Then we often have a sandwich for lunch or a roll w...

Healthy Fats

The Introduction of Macronutrients

https://youtu.be/d5fxhvtvm7s When it comes to macronutrients it always interests how most people are obsessed with one of the macronutrients. You’ll often hear someone say, “I need to get protein, I don’t have enough protein, where do you get your protein from?” Then you have the fats people won’t touch because they think fats, regardless of what kind will actually make them gain weight (which certainly isn’t the case as you’ll read in the fats section below). And then there’s the ca...
