Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a fabulous week!
If you haven’t signed up yet, I FINALLY created a weekly round-up email of recent CNC blog posts. Now you can get a recap of what happened on the blog delivered right to your inbox. It’s just one email per week! Just sign up here!
I like the Thursday edition of “What I’m Loving Lately”, so I think it’ll become a regular weekly feature. They’re fun for me to write and you guys really seem to enjoy them, so let’s keep ’em alive and publish them on Thursdays. Boom. Decision made! 🙂 That way, you still have a random blog post surprise coming to you on Fridays. I like that I can switch it up from week-to-week and keep you guys guessing! Haha!
Chocolate Donut Seasoning – One of my nutrition clients recently told me about this seasoning – and, of course, I had to order it immediately. Chocolate Donut Seasoning? What the what!?! I just received it the other day and, OMG, it’s incredible! I can see myself using this ALLTHETIME!!!
Meal timing and weight loss: Does it matter when you eat? – We all know that WHAT you eat can impact your weight and your overall health, but it seems that WHEN you eat can also play a role.
Brooks Levitate 2 – How beautiful are these sneakers?!? I love, love, love the brightly-colored knit pattern. My friends from Brooks sent me the new Levitate 2 to try… and, boy, are they a comfy ride. They have neutral support with super springy DNA AMP cushioning and an overall lighter feel than some of my other Brooks sneakers. I’m definitely a fan! And, again, can we talk about how pretty they are!?
Flaxseed – Good or Bad? – Flaxseed is pretty controversial in the health community, so this was an interesting blog post.
Elbow Patch Stripped Shirt – I received a ton of questions about my stripped shirt with elbow patches, so I wanted to mention it again – as well as this similar stripped shirt, but it doesn’t have a hood.
Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream – I’ve started to use this sleeping cream as part of my evening skin care routine, and I’m in lovvveee. It’s a wonderful blend of hyaluronic acid, plum oil, and tara gum – all of which helps to replenish hydration and revitalize skin while you sleep. My skin definitely looks smoother, softer, and more radiant in the morning. If you’re in the market for a new night cream, I highly recommend THIS ONE!
Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowl – This oldie, but goodie recipe made a reappearance this week, and I don’t know HOW I forgot about it?! It’s so dang delicious!
Amazon Explore – Mal recently told me about Amazon Explore, and I’m seriously obsessed. It’s basically a cool curated space – everything from the best in women’s fashion and kitchen gadgets to finds for little kids and work space accessories. There are just so many fun products, gadgets, and more! There’s even a “picky eaters” sub section with so many great ideas! “Coffee, Books & Rain” pillow? Adorable.
CAVA – I had my first CAVA experience this week, and it did not disappoint. Their menu is Mediterranean-inspired, and you customize your meal to fit your tastes preferences. It’s basically “build your own bowl,” and, my gosh, it’s delicious! There’s a new CAVA location at the Derby Street Shoppes, and I’m excited to partner with the brand in the coming months. Do you have a CAVA near you? We’re going to host a gift card giveaway, so keep your eyes peeled! Also, you can get $3 to spend at CAVA by signing up here!
A top Cornell food researcher has had 13 studies retracted – This article was super interesting!
Question of the Day
Have you ever tried CAVA? Thoughts?
P.S. There’s only 3 days left to save on the Ultimate Detox System! Now through Sunday, September 30th, customers will enjoy $30 OFF the original retail price when they purchase an Ultimate Detox System – NOW just $160 per system, which is definitely expensive, but worth every penny. My annoying menstrual symptoms have been nearly non-existent since I started using it. I actually might purchase another one myself!
