With the 2016 here, I, like many others, am ready to start the year off fresh. Listed below are a few of my favorite items to help achieve health and wellness in the new year.
This DVD includes two great workouts from yoga masters Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman: a 20 minute refreshing morning workout and a restorative and relaxing 15 minute evening workout.

Drinking 1 tablespoon (mixed in water) of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar each day is one of my favorite natural ways to help stay healthy. Apple cider vinegar has so many benefits from supporting a healthy immune system and helping to control healthy weight to promoting digestion and helping to remove bodily toxins.
Taking a supplement is an added way to make sure I am getting everything my body requires on a daily basis. I love The Honest Company supplements because they carefully source their ingredients and are free of commonly found binders, fillers, synthetic additives, pesticides, and contaminants (including but not limited to: gluten, soy, yeast, wheat, casein, gelatin, sodium, dairy, eggs, shellfish, sweeteners/HFCS, artificial flavors, starch, dyes, preservatives, parabens, or phthalates). The supplement is gentle on your stomach and made with bioavailable nutrients made from a targeted blend of antioxidants, superfoods, probiotics, and digestive enzymes to support her active lifestyle.

Getting enough protein in your diet is essential to staying healthy. I love Squarebar Organic Protein Bars for a treat everyday while also getting 11-12 grams of protein per bar. Squarebars are USDA Organic, Soy Free, Certified Gluten Free, Vegan, and Non-GMO!
