At any time of day, you will find me with a variety of beverages on my desk, in my bag and in-hand. Everything from water to tea, kombucha, herbal infusions, kefir, tonics, elixirs and potions. Always on the lookout for something new to try, you can understand my excitement when I was introduced to the newest (good-for-you) drink that is now on my permanent rotation: Obi Probiotic.

Expansive, mind-blowing change can happen when we are in an environment where we feel supported, heard and inspired. This was exactly my experience when I underwent the last 21 Day Transformation with Holistic Nutritionist, Kristin Dahl and Health Coach, Alexa Gray.
Through their work, I was able to open up, shift my relationship with food, meet new incredible souls and received the most amazing goodie bag in the mail full of beautiful holistic products that assisted me in using the tools I acquired even after the cleanse was over.
Research shows that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Well, I believe this is even more true when those days are filled with a tribe who is on the same path, experts who are there to answer any questions you have and endless inspiration to quickly alleviate anxiety and fears through the process.
I am eternally thankful for all of the resources I have at my fingertips living in NYC, but nothing can replace the community of women I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by.
Paige, Vice Blendy of my favorite LuliTonix and straight up magician goddess in the kitchen is definitely one of those people. She is bursting with positive energy and puts so much love into everything she does. Paige is a constant inspiration and I am thrilled she is joining us today to feature her delicious (and healthy!) gluten-free, vegan chocolate mint cupcakes.
It has been almost a year since I first met Scott and Nitsa of Sun Potion and was introduced to the magical world of tonic herbs and superfoods. As I have shared more about this incredible company, from a very special interview with Scott and Nitsa that can be read here, to a Sun Potion Instagram Takeover and many experiments + recipes dreamed up in the kitchen, one theme has remained. Everyone wants to learn more. So many of you have written, asking questions and ready to begin your journey. You want to understand what the tonic herbs and superfoods are, where they come and how you can incorporate them into your life.
I am over-the-moon excited to introduce today’s guide. In collaboration with Sun Potion we have put together a comprehensive look at all of the herbs Sun Potion shares, what they are, the benefits and how you can enjoy them in your life.
Maintaining morning and evening rituals is one of the greatest ways to stay grounded and supported despite whatever the day may bring. Life gets busy and hectic, it is nearly impossible to jump into a state of total relaxation once the evening approaches. Calming your mind and body is crucial to transition into nighttime with ease. This tonic (along with a great book, mantra playing and candles burning) helps me to release anything not serving me and arrive at a happy, serene place.
The ashwagandha is restorative while reducing anxiety, reishi supports the immune system and relieves stress and mucuna pruriens soothes the entire nervous system. Mixed with the gynostemma or chamomile tea, you will be amazed at the feeling of bliss that washes over you. This tonic is my absolute favorite way to unwind, calm my nervous system and prepare for sweet dreams.
I was first introduced to The Sweetness of Being when my friend Nitsa of Sun Potion gifted me with their collaborative chocolate. Within the first bite, I was instantly transported to cacao heaven and wanted to learn more about the company. I wrote the creator of the brand, Sarah Engelhart, to find out the story behind her creations. I quickly discovered she is currently raising money to expand to a commercial kitchen so she can sell The Sweetness of Being outside of just California and donated immediately. This chocolate needs to be shared with the world!
