Happy National Meditation Month!

It’s a funny thing how quickly a practice can become a lifestyle. It’s only been about a year and a half since I started dabbling in meditation. It started slow, an audio recording here, a 21-day challenge there, the occasional moment of mental stillness during savasana after my yoga practice. Then, slowly, unconsciously, it became a regular habit.

In times of greater stress or emotional upset, I’ve found comfort in meditating multiple times a day, but mostly it’s just a 20 minute practice to calm my mind before bed. There are still the occasional moments that I lose track and forget how important tapping into that inner calm can be, that’s what this week’s video blog is all about:

Vlog: A Rawxies Review [aka my newest snack addiction] + a GIVEAWAY!

As a gluten-free vegan, I’m pretty easily excited by finding just about any store-bought item that fits into my dietary requirements. Depending on the location & circumstance I can find excitement in anything from a rice cake to a well-made, allergy-free cupcake. It’s kind of all relative.

That being said, it’s not often that a pre-packaged gluten-free/vegan food item also excites the health coach in me. Packaging usually means preservatives, additives, & cheap sweeteners which makes my inner health nut crinkle her neti-cleansed nose. That’s why I’m so excited about the product in today’s video review: Rawxies. They’re just pure, wholesome goodness that happen to also be delicious.

Check out what I have to say about these yummy little cookies:
