Who else out there is in love with the Moscow Mule?
The refreshing cocktail that comes in the classic Copper Mug. But is that Mug safe?
It’s very important that your copper mug is lined with nickel. That’s because copper is a heavy metal that reacts with acidic fluids such as cocktail ingredients. If you use a copper mug that is not lined with nickel, the acidic fluids in your drink will cause a chemical reaction which may cause you to ingest too much copper, leading to an unhealthy and potentially dangerous concentration of copper in your body.
Unfortunately, many stores are full of UNSAFE Copper Mugs because many manufacturers that sell copper mugs without any nickel lining fail to warn their buyers about the potential health consequences. In order to avoid negative health effects for you and your friends and family, please make sure to only use copper mugs that are plated with nickel on the inside.
You can get these SAFE Copper Mugs at moscowmuled.com. They are of exceptional quality, they are real copper mugs vs. copper plated. Plus they make your cocktails fun and festive. I have even been known to drink a smoothie out of mine, cuz why not!?!?
Here is a fun refreshing cocktail I like to serve in these glasses as well.
Cucumber Mint Basil Twist
1 shot cucumber mint vodka
1 slice cucumber
1 tsp fresh basil sliced
2 shots white cranberry juice
2 shots sparkling water
Shake together vodka, cucumber, basil, and cranberry juice.
Pour over ice and top with sparkling water. Stir and serve.
The yoga industry is booming: it’s a $16 BILLION industry in the US alone…and growing every day. But if that’s true, then why are MOST yoga teachers struggling to make ends meet?
You grind out class after class. You drive from studio to studio. If you’re dabbling in online marketing, you’re making YouTube videos here and there, or posting picture after picture on Instagram.
You’re doing the work…but why isn’t it working?
Here’s the truth: You don’t need to work harder, you just need a new STRATEGY, and you need a TEAM!
My team leaders are following a very simple plan to build six-figure online businesses that are spiritually AND financially abundant…
…while remaining 100% true to their higher purpose, and serving with complete integrity and authenticity.
I mentor others in this industry. I pull back the curtain on the inside strategies smart yoga teachers are using to build a business that fulfills them spiritually AND financially…while making the world a better place along the way.

It is 5:30 and you have not even begun to think about what to make for dinner.
You had all these healthy goals on Monday and here it is Friday and none of those goals were met.
No time now... so you pour the pasta in the pan and pull out the can of sauce to frantically whip something together to feed your family.
I have been there.
I have made it to the other side.
One of the biggest blessings that came out of my cancer journey was receiving my education in nutrition so I could self advocate. Now my goal is to advocate for others! I help others eat real yummy wholesome food... EASILY.
My goal is to HELP you take out all the guess work.
With my meal plans that are created by a registered dietician, you will be provided with:
1. A color coded shopping list that is separated into store department categories.
Yes this recipe is keto friendly... no I don't follow a keto diet. I prefer eating for LIFE and that means BALANCED. I do not support the keto diet because of my education in nutrition, and low-carbohydrate diets may increase your risk for kidney damage, osteoporosis, abnormal heartbeat, lipid abnormalities and even sudden death. If your ketogenic diet is high in protein, it could also increase your risk for diabetes, cancer and overall premature mortality. So why on earth would I ever try to get my clients to go keto? I wouldn't. I teach my clients how to live long happy healthy abundant lives. I do NOT think one needs to go through life without ever having grain or treats again. All things in balance.
I do however, know that Carbohydrates are best consumed during the first half of your day, because carbohydrates give you ENERGY. So I have my healthy carbs for breakfast and lunch and keep them out of my dinner. Enter this healthy Chicken fried cauliflower rice. With about 300 calories per serving, it gives you a fantastic protein packed dinner that is fiber filled leaving you full and satisfied. If you would like to learn what foods benefit you better and when... please reach out! I love teaching people how to feel better!

It is a new week again and I am seeing the regular complaining about Monday posts on social media. Everybody's workin' for the weekend.
I gotta say guys... it confuses the crap out of me.
The majority of your life should be spent LIVING and doing things you LOVE not the other way around spending the majority at a job that is sucking the life out of you. I wouldn't be judging if you weren't complaining. If you love your job this isn't for you... it is for all of you that POST weekly about the monday dread. SMH! All I can do is try to be the example and let you know that if you want a free life, you can have it. You just have to be willing to work on you, be coachable, and share the journey as you go!
Stop telling yourself you can't do it.... That is a lie.
I was 65 pounds overweight, recovering from 3 types of cancer when I decided to take charge of my life and instead of doing it quietly, I declared it publicly to hold me accountable. That is the decision that changed my life forever and I am looking to help others like me, that are truly ready, because when you are TRULY READY, you are willing to declare it, because you WANT accountability. Knowing my followers were watching, along with my community of people who were doing it with me was the game changer. I showed up, and continue to do so, because I may fail myself, but I will not fail someone else I committed to help. So you see... I am getting paid to save my life and the lives of others, and you can too.
This video is a compilation of our recent trip to Summit in Indianapolis. I can't help but think of what it would be like to have YOU there with us next year. Most of these faces I would never have met, but they had courage to take a chance, step up, get healthy, and SHARE IT!
What if they had said no?
These ladies are my family. They are what i look forward to when i open my eyes, they are what i think about when I am closing my eyes. We have big dreams and we know we will achieve them together. We come from all walks of life, are all shapes and sizes, and we are committed to helping one another succeed, and we want to help you too.
I can help you earn your free ticket to join us next year all while helping you get healthy, and earn a paycheck that helps you earn FREEDOM. Small daily steps compound and add up to a life of freedom if you are willing to do the work. For me it took giving up one TV show per day. For some it meant getting up earlier, or going to sleep later.
You have to decide which you hate more:
Giving up 8-10 hours of your life every day for someone else's dreams or Your excuses
My inbox is open to anyone who is ready to take charge of their future. You can DM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I am excited to hear your story and help you get to where you want to go.
I was sitting in the dentist chair last night and my dentist was all absorbed in hearing about my cancer battle. I was surprised at how hungry he was to hear my story. Turns out his wife is just this year, a 5 year survivor of breast Cancer. Tears welled up in his eyes as he listened to me speak about the process and how we found out and what the year long battle was like. He then looked at me in the eyes and said:
"Why is it that we as people have to wait for our lives to be at risk before we do something about what we are putting into our bodies?"
He hit the nail on the head. I am sure many of you reading this are just thinking; "well I am fine, I will cross that bridge if I get to it." You will get to it. I promise you. I am just hoping and praying your outcome is as good as mine was. It is rare to live through. Many do, but for the rest of our lives we are "high risk" and we don't have a choice regarding what we put in our bodies after that. We are stuck with high doctor bills and going in for a full work up every 3 months. Being poked and prodded and put in various machines. We are faced every 3 months with our battle and we wait for the phone call that will tell us yay or nay. I hate it.
I agreed with my dentist and we kept on chatting. He is an older wiser man, who was born and raised in the United States, but his family is from Mexico. He spoke of how hard it is for them to find real food in America. He spoke of the processed foods and all the chemicals they learned about during his wife's battle. Again, I agreed with him and proceeded to give him tips on how to avoid produce from U.S.A and Canada. I also started giving him cancer fighting superfood information that he quickly wrote down.
I am one of those people that needs facts. I need to educate myself in order to make proper choices for me and my health. With so many supplements and shakes out there I got overwhelmed and turned off to all things smoothie and supplement for a while. That is until Cancer hit. You get an education, and FAST!
One of my first questions to my doctor, when told about the diet I needed to be on because cancer thrives off of "American Food", was "Why isn't everyone told this? Why is it allowed." The answer was simple. "Freedom." Yep, we are in the land of the free. That means you are free to choose to educate yourself, and you are free not to. The FDA is not approving things they think are great for you. They are simply allowing so many thousands of chemicals in items.... in other words... they have determined what wont kill you now, in that one item. They don't tell you what happens when you continue to eat non-food items day in and day out. Where do those items go? Systs, Tumors, Growths... I have said it all before, but you are still here, so that means you are still interested in learning. That my friend is your first step.
So I set forth to educate myself day in and day out. I spent hundreds of dollars a month buying imported peruvian superfoods, concentrate powders, extracts etc.. It broke the bank, but it was what my body needed. I started to really bounce back and get healthy. Today, one year later I am cancer free.
So what did I learn along the way? I was doing it the hard way. Enter Shakeology. Thanks to some awesome advice from my doctor, who couldn't sell it to me because it is a conflict of interest, but she pointed me to it. You see it has EVERYTHING, and I mean everything and then some, I need to keep my body cancer free and help me shed off all the extra pounds that came with Cancer. For those who have had cancer, they know what I mean. Bloating, water weight, pounds from having to lay around for a year. All of it made me feel awful. THIS is what taking this has done for me!!
- 65 pounds
I now feel like it is my job to educate those that have not had the cancer battle, or the education that I have had. So sit back and here is why there is not a single other product on the market that compares.
First of all let's talk about cost. Do you have 2 minutes? Please watch to see how there is over $700 in organic superfoods in ONE bag of Shakeology. Get your Shakeology HERE!
It helps me stayCancer FreeIt is my NUMBER ONE solution in my life and I LOVE helping others feel this good. I was able to throw out ALL other subpar vitamins, minerals, probiotics, adaptagens, prebiotics etc... so I SAVE a ton. If you are ready for this solution in your life get yours HERE or EMAIL me.
Do I have your attention yet? Can I show you how much it is for some of these ingredients? Now remember there are 70 of them?
I personally took those pics with my cell phone at my grocery store this week.
So now you are probably thinking... well what about other shakes?
Take a second to look at this so you can KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR SHAKE!
A lot of shakes cause more harm than good. Ours is ALLLLL good!
So what about Isogenix? You have heard such great things about it right? Well... let's compare.
The positives of Isagenix is that it contains 23 grams of protein per serving (compared to Shakeology’s18 grams of protein per serving). Isagenix, like Shakeology, also contains many naturally occurring ingredients which set them apart from other meal replacements. However, I have not found other components that set Isagenix apart from Shakeology.
On the negative side, Isagenix contains 1100% more fat than Shakeology (6 grams compared to less than half a gram). It also contains more cholesterol and sodium than is found in Shakeology and contains 240 calories per serving when Shakeology only has 150 calories per serving.
Isagenix lacks to potency of the vitamins and minerals that Shakeology contains. Isagenix has only 40% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C versus 300% inShakeology. It lacks significance of other vitamins contained in every Shakeology drink such as Vitamin B1, B2, and B3. You would actually have to drink 2-4 Isagneix shakes to get the same concentration of vitamins and minerals found in just 1 Shakeology shake.
I do feel that Isagenix is one of the better meal replacement shakes, but it just does not compare to Shakeology. Shakeology is a step above the rest.
The only other shake that even comes close to Shakeology is Vega One.. however close but no cigar. Why? Well let me tell you....

Participants followed the Shakeology Program, which included replacing one meal per day with Shakeology, exercising three times a week, and eating a balanced diet.
“You Get What You Pay For”.
Although you can find a number of cheaper alternatives to Shakeology in the stores, THEY DON'T WORK and they are missing the KEY botanical ingredients!!! The benefits can never be compromised.
Yep...this was my counter just 4 years ago. 😱 4 years ago I was buying every kind of supplement I could find to try to stay alkaline and keep my cancer from growing.
If I could turn back time I would have saved thousands of dollars and countless tears and pain if I would have found the solution I have now...just a little earlier. So this is my battle cry every day. To help save others from going down the rabbit hole of subpar products that never even make it through the digestion process. Stay away from the costco vitamins, proteins, supplements...it may look cheaper, but it is just money down the toilet. I have what you need in ONE item.

Can we talk packaged snack food for a sec?
I know it is convenient, and before I started my healthy lifestyle I used to eat at least one packaged bar daily, thinking it was healthy! While a select few are good for you with all natural ingredients, others are full of artificial flavors, tons of added sugar, preservatives, and trans fats. In fact, a lot aren’t much better than eating a candy bar.
That’s why I’m SO Excited for these new BEACHBARS because they are full of REAL, natural ingredients, packed with protein, low sugar, low glycemic, and full of fiber!

What Flavors does BEACHBAR come in?
It comes in two flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate and Chocolate Cherry Almond. Both are made with nut pieces and nut butters, protein crisps, and topped with a ribbon of chocolate. Can you say, delicious!?
BEACHBAR combines crunchy, protein crisps, nut pieces, chocolate chips, creamy nut butters, and fruit chunks (in the Chocolate Cherry Almond flavor) to deliver delicious, satisfying goodness in every bite. The key ingredients are below!
How Do BEACHBARS Compare?
Like I said, there are a select few bars out there that are actually good for you (including my favorite RX Bars!) These are the few I would actually consider healthy, but BEACHBARS actually out rank ALL of them!
Do They Fit Into the Portion Fix?
YES! They count as 1/2 red, 1/2 yellow, and 1 tsp per bar! They will fit right into the Beachbody program nutrition plans.
