The Ancestral Nutrition Protein Powder

The best grass-fed collagen protein powder on the market! It’s mixed with six organic greens to boost the nutrient profile as well! The Ancestral Nutrition protein powder is finally here! I have worked on this protein powder for over a year. I searched for manufacturers, interviewed them, hit tons of snags and came up with one of the healthiest, best tasting protein powders I’ve ever had. I created this grass-fed protein powder because I saw a need for it. I was making my family smoothies every morning, using a collagen protein and a separate greens powder, when it dawned on me that I should just make my own. So I did. I’ve done a lot of protein reviews and I break down every ingredient, so let me do that here. Here is a list of the ingredients in my protein powder: Hydrolyzed Grass-Fed Bovine Collagen, Organic Spirulina, Organic Spinach Powder,…

This is why it’s crucial to use truly non-toxic skincare and makeup. It’s something I’ve become incredibly…

Blueberry Cobbler (Gluten-Free, Paleo, Low Carb)

It’s summer. And to me that means fruit cobblers for dessert. Particularly this blueberry cobbler that’s gluten-free, paleo and low carb. I just prefer a blueberry cobbler to a peach cobbler. Fresh peaches? Definitely. Cooked, warm, mushy peaches? Nah. But blueberries hold up perfectly to the hot oven and the hot termperatures outside. I don’t know why I hate warm peaches but love warm blueberries. There’s just something so good about a blueberry cobbler. They’re even better when topped with coconut cream mixed with maple syrup (highly recommend) or ice cream. This actually would have been insane with ice cream. Dammit I totally should have bought vanilla ice cream. But if you don’t have it either, just use coconut cream. It’s also crazy good. Also, my kids, who are 2 and almost 1 – devoured this. It’s not too sweet as I only use a 1/2 cup of coconut sugar,…

I have shared a few supplement regimens in the past and I wanted to do another because it’s always changing. I have never and would never recommend anyone continually take the same supplements over and over (excluding a few we could all use, like magnesium). I get regular blood work to determine where I may be lacking and supplement based on that, as well as how I feel. ASHWAGANDA I take this brand of ashwaganda. Ashwaganda is an adaptogen that helps you adapt to stress. It reduces anxiety and promotes an overall sense of calm. I’ve been taking ashwaganda on and off for…
