Ten Healthy Must Have Products For The New Year & A Giveaway


Start your New Year off with these healthy products. 


  The New Year will be here soon and for most, it is a way to make a fresh start in their life. Make this the year that you are going to improve your health. That may mean to some eating healthy or healthier. It may mean starting exercise or increasing your exercise. It may mean eating more fruits and veggies. I am sure you have some healthy goal in mind that you would like to achieve. For me, it is making more healthy dinners for my family and helping my family eat better. I also want to do more running.  I have a list of great products that I will be incorporating into my new healthy year goals. I hope that some of these products may be ones that you would like to try or use. Keep reading to find a wonderful giveaway!

1. Start the New Year off with a healthy gut 




 Did you know that your gut could be the source of many problems in your body? A healthy gut could help improve many things beyond digestion in your body. I take a daily probiotic to keep my immune system healthy and it also helps me be regular. I also notice that I no longer have yeast infections since I started taking probiotics. The probiotic that I will be using this year is one that is made for a women's body.  A woman's microbiome is different from a man's so it is smart to support your gut, skin and vaginal and immune health with specially formulated
NEW advanced gut health probiotics that are made for women. These Genuine Health probiotics have 50 Billion CFU to support the gut along with other ingredients to support the emotional, urinary, and immune system. They are also Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Soy Free, and Vegan.

2. Increase your water intake with a delicious sparkling water.


      Water is always good for us and most people do not drink enough of it. Make drinking water more enjoyable with a naturally refreshing delicious 0 calories flavored sparkling water
Waterloo Sparkling Water comes in six delicious fruit flavors and also plain. With flavors like:
Watermelon
Black Cherry
Coconut
Grapefruit
Lime
Lemon
You will never get bored with water again. These delicious waters are made with natural ingredients and also have no sugar or sodium in them. The water also goes through a 5 stage filtration! So increase that water intake with Waterloo! 




 3. Enjoy your daily turmeric


Turmeric is a wonderful supplement that supports a healthy inflammatory response in the whole body. I like to call turmeric my natural pain reliever as it helps with those aches and pains that I get from working. A couple of weeks ago, I had a trigger finger from using my son's pull-up bar too much. I took this supplement and it gave me wonderful pain relief. I like to also like to take turmeric daily as it is great for overall health and vitality. Gaia Golden Milk makes taking turmeric so delicious. It is sweetened with dates and I love mixing it into a glass of nut milk for a delicious nourishing afternoon treat. 




 4. Give yourself a healthful and relaxing aromatherapy session



  My days can get crazy and stressful so I like to take a break with a unique aromatherapy pillow that helps me relax. AiroSpa™ Pillow, www.airospapillow.com, is a unique, simple to use, affordable, multi-purpose stress reliever and aromatherapy pillow that can be used at home and travel anywhere.  It has a built-in fan and air-flow vents along with a  face-down angled construction so you can relax and breath in the included essential oils that will help relax and calm you. This unique pillow can also be used for massages, sleeping, snore relief, and so much more. The included essential oils are lavender, rose, chamomile, geranium, jasmine, and ylang-ylang. I like to bring this inflatable pillow when I travel since it deflates to fit in my carry-on bag.



5. Track your fitness with a unique tracker                                   
                                                                                            

   A fitness tracker can help motivate you so you can reach your health and fitness goals. The Healbe GoBe 2 Smart Life Band fitness tracker does so much more than tracking your steps. This comfortable fitness tracker monitors a total of nine key parameters. These include:
calorie intake
calories burned
energy balance
water balance
stress level
emotional state
heart rate
sleep quality
distance traveled/number of steps per day
I love how easy it is to charge the fitness tracker with the included purple cord and charging base that plugs right into my computer. I am able to see my fitness progress whenever I want through an app on my phone. I can also set reminders on my tracker to remind me to drink more water. When it vibrates, I then reach for a glass of water. The bands also come in other colors like purple, blue, yellow, and more.




 6. Make your protein powder more functional.


Get more from your daily protein drink. These delicious 100% natural protein powders are not only free of dairy, soy, gluten but also have added benefits to keep your body healthy in the New Year.  I enjoy the Chai Turmeric Maca after working out!

Check out the benefits of these functional flavors:

COFFEE: This powerful antioxidant promotes and enhances physical performance.

MCTs: Medium Chain Triglycerides are linked to weight loss and better cognitive function, occurring naturally in coconuts.

MATCHA: This green tea with slow-release caffeine is high in antioxidants and has been used in Eastern medicine for its brain-boosting effects (due to high levels of L-Theanine).

TURMERIC: A powerful anti-inflammatory used for centuries in Indian medicine.

MACA ROOT: Nutrient-dense and claimed to enhance fertility and energy.

7. Replace your workout shoes                                                                                                             
                                                                                                      

The New Year is a great time to replace your workout shoes. Shoes get worn out over time and can cause more than foot problems. Working out in excessively worn workout shoes may increase your risk of repetitive injuries in the feet, legs, and pelvis. Look for signs like these
  • The outer sole has worn through to the white midsole
  • The midsole feels too soft and collapses easily under pressure. You may see longitudinal creases in the midsole
  • The heel counter becomes mobile and less supportive
  • Your toes wear through the toe-box, and the shoe upper tears
  • One shoe sole becomes asymmetrically worn compared with the other
  • One or both shoes no longer stand up straight when placed on a flat surface
Play it safe and treat yourself to a new pair of shoes. OESH’s new LEA sneaker is a unique healthy, eco-friendly footwear designed to complement the daily movements of an active woman’s lifestyle. These shoes are ultra comfortable and so soft. They are also flexible and have a spring in them that responds to your movement. These are my favorite workout at the gym shoes!





THE MAGIC IS IN THE SOLE.

The heart of footwear is the sole. That’s especially true for OESH.



Most athletic shoes are designed to cushion heel impact using toxic foam materials (typically, ethylene vinyl acetate), then control foot movement with contoured, one-size-fits-all footbeds. But heel impact isn’t when peak stresses and strains to the body occur, nor is it healthy to force all feet into rigid, generic forms.

In contrast, the OESH Sole is a gentle elastic spring, compressing when the foot is fully planted (at the instant the body’s measured stresses and strains are at their peak) and releasing energy in tune with your natural movement to the next step. Moreover, the OESH Sole is perfectly flat in all directions so your foot can move the way you choose to move, always promoting healthy circulation and muscle activity.


8. Boost your immunity with a delicious tea recipe





The New Year happens to be the most vulnerable time for your immune system. Tetley Tea has crafted a delicious, DIY “Medicine Ball” recipe with its two “Super Tea: Immunity” teas, which are expertly blended with vitamin C to help support your immune system.  This must-taste winter tealixir pairs Tetley’s Immunity Super Teas with hot lemonade, sweet honey, and refreshing peppermint.

Winter Tealixir

- 1 Tetley Immunity Green Tea bag (smooth green tea cleverly combined with Vitamin C, lemon, and honey)

- 1 Tetley Immunity Peach Orange Tea bag (a lovely peach and orange infusion with Vitamin C)

- 8 oz. hot water

- 8 oz. hot lemonade

- Honey to taste (suggested ½ tsp)

- Optional: 1/8 tsp. peppermint extract OR 1 pump peppermint syrup

1. Steep Tetley tea bags in hot water and lemonade for 3-5 minutes

2. Stir in honey to taste and optional peppermint flavor of choice 




9. Fall in love with this healthy gluten-free pasta 


Modern Table delivers delicious and easy-to-make meals and mac & cheese to those who want their food to do more than tickle their taste buds. Ready in 15 minutes or less, their pastas are chock-full of plant protein. 



These delicious pastas are non-GMO, vegetarian, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy free. With six meal kit varieties, three mac & cheese, and three plain kinds of pasta, I am sure you will find one or more that you will enjoy. Check out my full review and enter to win all 12 boxes of Modern Table pasta.

10.Treat yourself once in a while






While a healthy lifestyle is great, it is Ok to have occasional sweets once in a while. Denying yourself a favorite food can backfire and cause you to binge on junk food. So enjoy that sweet treat once in a while, just have a smaller portion and reach for a better for you treat that is made with natural ingredients. The Lovely Candy Company just launched two new better for you treats – Honey Gummy Bears and Dark Chocolate Honey Patties. Known for their premium quality confections – which are free of high fructose corn syrup, gluten, and artificial colors and flavors – the Chicago-based company has expanded its product line to offer more delicious options! I love that their Dark Chocolate Honey Patties are made with only three ingredients: honey, cacao and a little bit of flavor. The Gummy Bears are made with honey and get their natural colors from ingredients like vegetable juice, spirulina extract, and beta-carotene.


I don't feel guilty about eating these treats as I eat healthy 80% of the time. So a treat with natural ingredients is not going to sabotage my diet. In fact, a handful of Gummy Bears will give me that happy energy to help me get outside for a fast walk.
