When it comes to pursuing your health and wellness wholeheartedly, where should you begin?  Which cook books are filled with easy, healthy, nourishing recipes? Which beauty products are made safely or more naturally?

Over the years, I've learned healthy living isn't about short-term thinking; healthy living is about small, daily decisions which add up to a full, vibrant, and healthy lifestyle. Healthy living is about loving yourself and wanting to create a loving, peaceful life for yourself and for the people around you. Healthy living is about so much more than our food choices — it's about each of the small, daily decisions we make to create a life we are proud of and excited about.

Here, I've curated a collection of my favorite, recommended resources for healthy living — cook books, kitchenware, activewear, and clean beauty — resources I hope you'll use and love, too.

Plant Power Bowls

my favorite cook book

My current favorite cook book is Plant Power Bowls by Sapana Chandra. I discovered the Plant Power Bowls cook book when my husband and I were on a mini-vacation from Wisconsin to Minnesota. I saw the cook book in the window of a small kitchen gadget shop near Lake Harriet in Minnesota — and I had to have it! 

What I love most about Plant Power Bowls by Sapana Chandra is: (1) The recipes are divided up seasonally, so you can cook with the ingredients most readily-available in your garden or grocery store, (2) The recipes are 1-bowl recipes, so it's just a matter of throwing everything together, and (3) Every recipe is uniquely flavorful. 


Running Shoes

the best running shoes

After some trial and error, I finally found my favorite pair of running shoes: New Balance FuelCell Propel running shoes. I love these shoes, because they offer just the right amount of cushion, while still being responsive enough while I run each day.

New Balance shoes also come in a wide variety of widths, which I find to be really helpful when it comes to finding the perfect shoe to feel comfortable in, no matter the distances you run.

After fracturing my foot in early 2020, these shoes have been my go-to for creating a really supportive, fun, and safe run.


Brightening Facial Scrub

my go-to facial scrub

A handful of years ago, I discovered Acure — a natural, vegan, family-owned beauty product company I instantly loved. When Acure first arrived on the market, they were dedicated to offering vegan beauty products at reasonable prices. Then, they became available at Target — and the prices remained really reasonable!

Acure's Brightening Facial Scrub is truly, truly my go-to facial scrub. (I even got my husband on board!) Sea kelp is among its natural ingredients. I've used Acure's Brightening Facial Scrub for years, because no other products have left my face feeling as clean and bright as this facial scrub does. I can't recommend it enough!
