Why “Is It Keto?” Is the Wrong Question

What I’m Loving Lately 126 + Loco Coffee Giveaway and Flash Sale

Hi, guys! Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re having a nice week! 🙂

This is a special edition of What I’m Loving Lately because it includes a giveaway as well as a flash sale on a product that I have been loving lately. Loco Coffee blends coconut water into cold brew coffee to create a seriously delicious cold brew combo. The coconut water adds a touch of natural sweetness and electrolytes without any added sugar or preservatives. One 12-ounce can of Loco Coffee has as much potassium as a banana! I love mixing it with collagen and a little bit of creamer as a post-workout shake!

Loco Coffee is made locally in Boston, and it’s available on Amazon. FLASH SALE ALERT: Right now, you can save 25% with code CNCFLASH! This code expires on November 2nd, so be sure to hop on it!

AND… enter to win a 4-pack of Loco Coffee by leaving a comment below with your favorite coffee combo. I’ll randomly pick a winner next week!

Screentime Is Making Kids Moody, Crazy and Lazy – We noticed the moodiness with Quinn

Chris Kresser and Joel Khan on the Joe Rogan Experience – This episode was SO GOOD! Chris Kresser (Paleo/ancestral health practitioner) and vegan doctor Joel Kahn debate the health impacts of eating meat. It was so interesting to hear both of their perscpectives. The best part of the episode, in my opinion, happened in the first 5 minutes. Dr. Kahn said if he and Chris sat down together for a meal, 90% of what was on their plates would be similar. It’s interesting that we “debate” that remaining 10% so much!

Ghost Mini Pizzas – These are so adorable and such a cute idea for Halloween!

The MakeUp Eraser Original Pink – My sister bought me this Makeup Eraser awhile back, and I just started using it again. It removes 100% of your makeup with water only – just wet the cloth and remove your makeup, includes waterproof eyeliner, mascara, and more! It’s much more friendly to the environment and your wallet!

Is Peanut Butter Good For You? This Is What the Science Says – Loved this article! 🙂

Chicco MyFit Harness+Booster Car Seat – Our friends from Chicco hooked us up with a new car seat for Quinn. He was getting a little too big for his old one, so it was time to upgrade to a big kid car seat. The 5-point harness is a lot more comfortable for him, and I love that the MyFit converts to a belt-positioning booster for older kids, which means we probably won’t have to buy another car seat after this one! Quinn REALLY likes the kid’s storage console and stores all sort of toys and goodies inside. It was definitely a selling point for him! 🙂

Low-Dose Naltrexone for Autoimmunity? – I’ve asked my GI doctors about Low-Dose Naltrexone (LDN) for years now, and they always blow it off. It’s nice to know that some traditional doctors are started to recognize it as a viable treatment option for autoimmune diseases. Maybe I’ll bring it up again to my doctor!

Chatting with the Patriots team dietitian – I recently had the opportunity to visit Gillette Stadium and participate in a Q&A with the Patriots dietitian, Ted Harper. I even had lunch in the team dining room! As someone who loves food and fitness, it was an especially awesome experience! Check out the highlights over on @carrotsncake Instagram!

Here’s How To Get My Newly Printed Recipe Book

Want to know why I love fall?

I find myself wanting to cook ALL THE TIME. Especially soups. It’s soup season in the Food Babe house.

And, I’ve got great news. Over at Truvani, we’ve been working on something special…

We created a beautiful recipe book with foods that enhance your health.

The book is 46 pages, beautifully printed and bound, with STUNNING photography, and 17 health-giving recipes that are DELICIOUS and easy-to-make.

Just picture it on your kitchen counter…

And of course, we included desserts, main meals, and SOUPS (like our creamy carrot turmeric soup).

These are some of my favorite recipes I make at home for my family… everything from “Healing Everyday Hummus” (Page 8) to our simple “5 Ingredient Protein Pancakes” (Page 36). And more.

We include clear instructions for each recipe: 6 steps max (that’s for the Peanut Butter Protein Cookies). But most of these recipes have only 2 or 3 steps.

So, how do you get a copy sent to your house? Here’s how…

Many of you know I absolutely love, love, turmeric. I’ve been using it for years to help with maintaining healthy inflammation responses and joint health. This is one of the main reasons why Daily Turmeric was the first Truvani product.

I’m so grateful so many of you support our mission and love the turmeric as much as I do. We have over 1,600 reviews. And I still can’t believe it. Many of them are 5 stars.

Beginning today, if you buy a bottle of Truvani Turmeric, we will send you a copy of this new book… FREE.

Click here to get your copy (while supplies last)

Inside the book, you’ll find 17 recipes – including 3 recipes that you can make with Truvani Turmeric, too!

What makes our Turmeric special?

Of course, it’s 100% organic (with black pepper to aid absorption), but there’s one other thing, too…

You can take our Turmeric Tablet as a traditional supplement. Or you can combine it into everyday, easy-to-make recipes – because there’s NO COATING.

It’s also USDA Certified Organic. And we test for toxic heavy metals like mercury, lead, and arsenic to ensure the purest, safest ingredients (we pass the strict Prop 65 limits).

P.S. Here are some real reviews from people who’ve tried Truvani Turmeric:

“I have tried many brands of Tumeric and never really felt the effects of it. I continued to take it because I knew the benefits outweighed what I was feeling (or not feeling). When I decided to try Truvani Tumeric, it was like night and day… I recommend trying this product! You won’t go back to another brand!” – Laura B. (Verified Buyer), 06/22/18

“I have been thinking about taking Turmeric for a while now and chose this product because it is organic and well made. I appreciate doing business with a company that is truly motivated by wellness and honesty and not money.” – Cynthia N. (Verified Buyer), 06/28/18

“This product has exceeded my expectations. From the glass bottle and safe packaging to the actual pill itself. It’s authentic and I can feel the difference between this product versus others I have taken. I am very mindful about the products I use and put into my body and I have great peace of mind with this product.” – Georgia C. (Verified Buyer), 06/19/18

I had a last-minute project come in that I finished yesterday, but otherwise my to-do list is clear. I don’t want to schedule anything – even a walking date with a friend or appointment – just because I don’t want to have to cancel anything if labor happens! Of course I’m not simply sitting around twiddling my thumbs; I’m just not making plans and doing what feels right in the moment.

I’ve had a few rounds of what I guess is false/early labor. Contractions that are intense and different feeling than my usual Braxton Hicks, but they don’t really hurt or form a regular pattern. They say every contraction you have is productive, even if you’re not in active labor, so I’m happy every time one happens. “I’ll know when I know” it’s the real thing!

Breakfast vibes:

I walked downtown on Monday and went to a prenatal class at Bend. I wish I had gone to more classes there throughout this pregnancy, but the scheduling just didn’t quite match up, and I was in the mood for higher intensity exercise until lately. I hope I’m able to take Baby B to some of their mommy + me classes like I did with Mazey. They have some great offerings.

Afterwards I went to The Juice Place and got a Vacation juice and this delicious caprese pesto panini!

Thomas smoked a pork butt on Sunday, and we had that for dinner along with homemade fries and slaw. I love that he loves to smoke things for Sunday dinners! Makes meal planning that day easy : )

On Monday night we went out for what we hope was our final date night to Lampo, one of my very favorite Cville restaurants. We shared the small-but-mighty kale salad and the marinated olives.

Plus two pizzas, half of which came home with us for lunches. The Prosciutto pizza in the back with lemon and arugula is my favorite!!

Who knows – we might have several more dates nights left. I’m OK with that because it’s something we won’t be able to do for a while! I really want to see “A Star Is Born” too…
