These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

We could all use a little support right now, especially those managing small online businesses. I am starting this post to share some of my favorite products in the hopes that they’ll become yours, and in the process we’ll support some awesome folks working to keep their dreams alive and their families fed.

If you are in a position to do a little online shopping right now, I hope you find this useful. (Full disclosure: I am an Advocare distributor and a customer to a few of these other companies. I may share a loyalty link that, should you decide to purchase, would reward me with points or discounts.)

Advocare As I transitioned to a more plant-based and whole-foods lifestyle over the years, I have reduced the number of energy drinks and similar products I use. One product that has remained a constant in my kitchen cabinet is Spark. I have yet to find another product that equals it for the flavors and pre-workout kick in the pants I need to get out the door. *There is a summer special underway. New customers can try Spark for only $8 with free shipping! 

Arbonne Kristen Murray says, “Being empowered to improve the health & quality of life of not only myself but dozens of people over the last 2 years has given me purpose & passion I had lost.” Check out her site for clean beauty, health and well-being products. They make one of the best lip balms! Kristen also has a clean eating challenge starting soon.

Beachbody IMO, the vegan strawberry Shakeology protein shake is unsurpassed for taste and nutrition. Virginia Scroggins is your go-to girl. She and her hubby Jimmy are one of the cutest, most inspirational couples I know.

Ericraft-Kreations, Homemade Gifts from the Heart This is my go-to for anything crafty. Erika can do it all! She created the cutest goat key chains for our trail running group (Get on a Trail Shreveport, hence GOATS)! She even makes face masks. Erika says, “I like to create things, such as gift items or useful things like key fobs that make others happy by just looking at it. I like when I make something that makes others happy. I make gift items from my heart. With lots of love!”

Grove Collaborative: Natural Household and Personal Care products. I have been very happy with Grove’s customer service. My favorite products include the Aunt Fannie’s vinegar line and Grove’s liquid dish and hand soaps. They even have pet care products. Get a 5-piece gift set with your first order!

Hammer Nutrition: I came to know Hammer through my cycling friends. Over 30 years of developing the most effective, natural products free of added sugars, artificial colors, flavors, chemicals and preservatives. They use only complex carbohydrates, the highest quality proteins and ingredients in their 100% USA made products. My faves are the Vegan Tissue Rejuvenator (great post surgery/injury) and the Hammer Gels (banana and peanut butter, yum!). Use my referral code, 271248.

Modere is a company focusing on healthy and clean living from the inside out! Activate is their 3 day detox to help that sluggish digestive system. This 3 day system is designed to ignite your digestive energy, rejuvenate cellular health, eliminate toxins, and encourage fat loss! Activate is formulated with Organically Grown Aloe Vera.

Probiotics are so important for a healthy gut! With 5 Billion Cells guaranteed in each packet, you will love this probiotic. This convenient, great tasting powder is slightly sweet, and a family favorite! Reach out to Abby McMaster for more info!

Modere Recover gives you the support you need after exercise to reduce muscle soreness, recover faster and build more lean muscle.* Recover features a scientifically formulated blend of minerals and phytonutrients, including astaxanthin, l-glutamine, sour cherry, Indian frankincense, coconut water and essential electrolytes, so you can stay hydrated, fight muscle cramping and feel ready for the rest of your day.* Use Recover to reduce muscle soreness and support lean muscle formation, making it easier to be consistent and ensuring you get more from your workouts.* Visit and use referral code 2313369 for a $10 coupon.

Sports Rub : A massage with Modere Sports Rub is the perfect treat your body deserves at the end of a long day. This blend of natural extracts and oils provides the skin with soothing relief after anything from casual activity to daily workouts. Peppermint oil and menthol provide a cooling sensation to the skin and release a therapeutic aroma that calms the senses, while capsicum provides a feeling of warmth. Arnica extract is traditionally used to soothe skin after physical activity, and white willow bark extract is known for its relaxing aroma. Carry a tube in your gym bag and another in your briefcase, and you’ll always be one touch away from the ultimate warming, cooling and relaxation for your skin.

Zumba Move with Mo Doesn’t matter if it’s an in-person class, or a virtual sweat session, Monica will whip you into shape and you’ll have fun doing it!
