Every month I list my five favorite things that fall into the health & wellness category. They can be anything from a store, a workout class, a book, or even a recipe. Hopefully these monthly posts with inspire you, get you out trying new things, and above all putting your health first!
#5 Book >> Forest Feast Cookbook. Quick and healthy vegetarian recipes! Can you say in love?! This cookbook combines all of my favorite things; nature, veggies, and easy recipes. The photos are beautiful and with most recipes taking up less than one page you’re not allowed to say “I don’t have time to prepare healthy meals.” Amazon Link >> The Forest Feast: Simple Vegetarian Recipes from My Cabin in the Woods
#4 Podcast >> Meditation Minis with Chel Hamilton. This podcast is great for beginners or those who just want a few quick minutes to yourself. Listen with headphones on and get fully immersed in “you” time. I’ve talked about the importance of meditation several times and also teach guided meditations. ** If you’re interested in hosting a guided meditation at your home or place of business, please feel free to email me for details.
#3 Workout >> Kayla Istines. This girl is killing it! If you’re on Instagram, you’ve seen her before & after photos. She is the hot trainer right now and women everywhere are loving on her! The guides include workouts you can follow on your iPad with optional meal plans. The workouts can be difficult, but worth it. I just started and am looking forward to seeing the results.
#2 Product >> Spiralizer. I love my spiralizer! It makes eating veggies fun. Also, a great activity to get kids cooking in the kitchen with you. Get creative and spiral some produce that’s in season. Apples for a salad? How about sweet potato spirals? Give it a try. After testing a few models, I find that the Paderno Spiralizer does the best job.

#1 Grocery Store >> Pete’s Fresh Market. We finally got this grocery store near my house and it’s one of the best. I love Pete’s for their produce department and can we please talk about the sweets?! I know, I know… but I gotta give in to my cravings every once and awhile. Pete’s is also great for grab and go healthy dinners. I’m eating their homemade guacamole as I type. Find one near you!
