All About Grounding and Why I Use an Earthing Mat

I think we could all use a little more grounding in our lives…don’t you? Emotionally, for sure. It’s a crazy world. But what I’m really talking about is physical grounding. Have you tried earthing lately?! Grounding, also called earthing, is when you make direct contact with the earth for a period of time. To be more specific, earthing means sitting, walking, or standing on a conductive surface on the earth. Grass, sand, or dirt will work, but wood, plastic, or asphalt won’t. Making that direct contact with the earth exposes you to the earth’s electrical field, which actually offers a number of…

Instant Immune-Boosting Golden Bone Broth Mushroom Soup (Paleo)

It might be 85 degrees as I write this, but I SWEAR it was cold in L.A. last week. The weather here is so confusing. Anyways, it seems like everyone I’ve talked to recently has been getting sick, so enhancing immunity has been on my mind. I wanted to pull together a soup recipe that was incredibly immune-boosting, and really easy to make. I’m generally not a soup person because I feel like they take too much time. I also don’t make soup often because I don’t want to make a huge batch just for myself. I can only eat…

All About Rebounding Benefits

I have been getting a lot of questions about REBOUNDING recently, so I thought it was about time I wrote a post all about the benefits of rebounding to help explain why I am so in love with it!

I first heard about the health benefits of rebounding a few years ago, but I kind of brushed it off as something “extra” that I didn’t really need, and I wasn’t that interested. A few months ago,…

Paleo Chocolate Almond Butter Filled Snickerdoodles

About a year ago, I was having a major Snickerdoodle moment. When it comes to cookies, I don’t usually head straight to Snickerdoodles, but I had some pre-made gluten-free Snickerdoodle cookie dough from a random company in my fridge, so I thought I’d put it to use. My friends and I were having a girls’ night in, so I provided the snickerdoodles and the vegan ice cream. The cookies were good. Really good. But I felt horrible afterward. My stomach was in knots from all of the weird ingredients. Just because it’s gluten-free does not mean it’s healthy, and my sensitive stomach paid…

Do We All Have Body Dysmorphia? Reflections on Society’s Ridiculous Standards for Weight

    “What message do you want to get across to your audience?” That question is really difficult for me, because there are many messages I want to get across. Sometimes, though, I am so passionate about an idea that I can’t even get the words out. My platforms are about “healthy living,” I guess – but also not really. That is oversimplified. It’s about mental health and physical health. It’s about tuning into yourself, tuning out the media, and getting rid of unhealthy relationships – with others and yourself. It’s about fighting for yourself and your health, and always being your own biggest…
