Hemp Seed Giveaway


I use Manitoba Harvest hemp seeds in so many recipes; protein smoothies, fruit bowls, salads, yogurt, muffins, cookies.. the possibilities are endless. I keep a little bowl with a mix of hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds for easy access (I stole that idea from Lauren Evarts of The Skinny Confidential). 
Hemp hearts contain 10 grams of protein, all 10 essential amino acids, omega-3, omega-6, and omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) which has been shown to help with cholesterol, inflammation, skin and hair health, balancing hormones, and general heart health. If that wasn't enough hemp hearts also contain magnesium, fiber, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. 
This week, Manitoba Harvest and I are giving 8 lucky readers a 1 pound bag of hemp hearts!

The Dirty Lemon Cleanse


This new kind of detox doesn't require you to ditch meals. It's made with natural, raw ingredients that work to alkalize the body and cleanse the system of toxins the right way. 

Meet, Dirty Lemon.

The best part of this cleanse.. you don't have to change your diet. I eat pretty healthy for the most part. I try to stay away from processed foods, refined sugar, and meats. I've tried juice cleanses before and I just can't do it. The last time I tried I had no energy, and I almost passed out. I just need food. The only requirement to this cleanse, is to drink the charcoal bottle on a full stomach. Simple, right? So, I was really excited when Dirty Lemon asked my to try their 6 day cleanse. The bottles are super chic and Instagram worthy! They sent me a case of their charcoal, and collagen. You guys know how obsessed I am with collagen!

With a case of 6 being $65 for a one time purchase I won't be continuing this as a daily drink, but I will definitely purchase it the next time I'm feeling lethargic for a reboot. They also offer a sleep tonic that I would love to try and see if it helps me sleep better (I don't sleep well at all).

The Dirty Lemon Charcoal daily detox is made with reverse osmosis filtered water, cold-pressed lemon juice (a natural detoxifier), ginger root puree (helps aid digestion), dandelion root (also to help aid digestion), and activated charcoal derived from coconut shells (absorbs toxins - read more about charcoal from my beauty post, here), Luo Han Guo (a sweet fruit used as a sugar substitute; also used to cure coughs and sore throats), ocean minerals, and pink Himalayan sea salt (electrolytes).


The Dirty Lemon Collagen beauty elixir is made with reverse osmosis filtered water, cold-pressed lemon juice, hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides, cayenne, Luo Han Guo, ocean minerals, and pink Himalayan sea salt (electrolytes). 

For 6 days, I drank my collagen bottle in the morning, and my charcoal bottle at night after dinner (on a full stomach). Both are super lemon-y and the collagen one has a nice little bite from the cayenne (which I love)! I didn't really notice a change in anything for the first day or so, but around day 3 I noticed I had more energy, my skin was glowing, and the best part.. after dinner I didn't crave sweets anymore!
