Raise your hand if you are glad it is the weekend! Or are you like me and saying “What weekend?” Sadly, I will be working all weekend, so this Friday isn’t as celebratory as others! I am playing catch up from back to back vacations and dealing with issues with our rental house. Life is kind of crazy right now. I am hoping to take this weekend to finally get back on track. So cheer me up, and tell me you are doing something fun this weekend, will ya?
I haven’t done a Friday Favorites in a few weeks, so boy do I have a lot of great things to share with you! I am so excited about many of these new and old companies that I love. I hope you will find something you love too!
As a protein powder fan – I want only the best in my daily drink. Natural Force does a great job with their protein powder. It is made with whey from grass fed, free range cows and is 100% organic. It is important to me to have a good quality source of protein – not just any whey protein powder.
Now that I’ve found Natural Force, I am also investing in other products from them. I am excited about the clean, minimally processed, organic products they have! Some of the other products from their site that I am loving is the Collagen Peptides Primal Protein, Organic recovery Nectar and Coconut MCT Oil. They have a great selection of “BS Free” performance products. Check them out!
FotoJet is a great online tool for photo editing, graphic design and photo collages. I recently learned about this photo editing site, having used PicMonkey and Canva exclusively. I really love the ease of FotoJet and enjoy some of the new features that I haven’t seen from the other two online photo editing websites.
It’s really quite simple to make social media headers, banners, photo cards and more. The templates make it so easy – now it doesn’t take me forever to make a simple blog image! If you are a blogger or make images for work (or for fun), check out FotoJet design studio online!
We have been on quite a few vacations recently and have found the kitchen knives provided are dull, dull, dull. If only I could pack my own kitchen knives when I travel! (No, TSA I won’t try it!) Instead, I actually might consider packing this really awesome knife sharpener I recently tested out.
AnySharp Pro turns dull knives into razor sharp cutting instruments in mere seconds. This little tool works incredibly well, is small and compact and comes in a selection of fun colors. Using dull knives is dangerous and frustrating, so AnySharp Pro is a lifesaver in the kitchen! If you want sharp knives, you’ll want this guy!
I hate being cold. Yet I love winter sports. It’s a dilemma. There is an interesting balance I need to find that includes bundling up and having room to move around and not feel like the Michelin Man.
I really like the thermal wear from Heat Holders to solve this problem. When it was 10 degrees on the mountain this weekend, I wore my Heat Holders Thermal Underwear as my base layer under my ski shirt and jacket. It was soft and comfortable against my skin. And it didn’t add any bulk. It kept me a lot warmer than my cotton shirt!
Another product from them, the Heat Holders socks – are amazing! Being a person with cold feet and hands all the time – these socks work miracles! They are without a doubt the warmest thermal socks I have ever worn! They are perfect for lounging around the mountain cabin and cozy inside my big snow boots. My toes are finally warm this winter thanks to Heat Holders! Looking for the warmest thermal socks around, look no further!
Stevia is a better and healthier solution to sugar. NuNaturals provides premium stevia products with no artificial ingredients and the highest grades of stevia for purity, sweetness and superior flavor. Because it is the best of the best, it doesn’t have that unpleasant aftertaste!
NuNaturals NuStevia Syrup can be used for cooking, baking, and added to meals and drinks. Some recipe ideas include pudding, brownies, pancakes, scones, cookies, granola bars and more! NuNaturals has many delicious stevia products, my favorite being the NuStevia Ginger Syrup, NuStevia Peppermint Liquid and the NuStevia Clear Extract. The easiest way I enjoy these products is in my daily cup of tea!

Reading each chapter of the Autoimmune Wellness Handbook has been inspiring to me. The words of Mickey Trescott and Angie Alt have touched me so personally, on a level that only those with autoimmune diseases can understand. They have given me a new outlook and given me a sense of connection and community. I can relate to the struggles they mention and I don’t feel as alone. This book gives me encouragement that I can’t get from friends and family who don’t understand what I go through each day.
I have been making their recipes and following their practical suggestions. This book brings hope to a grim reality. I am taking my time with this book, soaking in every word. I look forward to finishing this book, although I know I will be reading it again and again. I suggest anyone who knows someone or anyone who suffers with an autoimmune disease, get this book as soon as they can. It is miraculous!
