"Healthy Obsessions" are the things I'm loving the most for the current month. They are all "healthy" products and include fashion, natural beauty, food and home products. I figure if I'm loving them you probably will too!
Not only does this beautiful book have delicious veggie recipes but it also has great tips on choosing, storing, prepping and cooking almost any vegetable you can think of. It will answer questions you have about veggies you aren't sure what to do with and will give you inspiration to try something new.
Most of the recipes are simple to make and use ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen. It is full of gorgeous pictures and the recipes range from appetizers, to salads to main courses.
The recipes in this book are not all plant based but a lot of them are and it is full of inspiration on new ways to eat more veg.
You can get it through Amazon or at your local bookstore.
This water bottle will keep your drink cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours! They come in a variety of pretty colours, patterns and textures and in three sizes. I prefer the medium (17oz) because it is lighter and more manageable on the go - although the larger size will hold a full bottle of wine ;-)
S'well bottles are composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel. They are an environmentally friendly option in an effort to reduce plastic water bottles.
I fill mine up with fresh water or green tea and take it everywhere with me! I can leave it in the car while I'm running errands and it will stay hot or cold. You can learn more and order them online at swellbottle.com - they are available at a lot of different retail locations ranging from department stores to health food stores...
Definitely the favourite item in my makeup bag right now! This eyebrow pencil is paraben free, gluten free and cruelty free. It comes in one universal shade, malt, that is beautifully designed to flatter and adapt to everyone's unique skin tone. Featuring a precision point, twist up mechanism, and an attached spoolie brush - it is a quick, easy and less toxic way to get your brows looking gorgeous!
My best friend bought me this bath scrub mitt and I absolutely love it! I use it in the shower to 'wet brush' my entire body before cleasing it. You can also use it to 'dry brush' before you get in the shower. Skin brushing (wet or dry) is beneficial to your health. It stimulates blood flow to enhance circulation and promote cellular regeneration, it stimulates your lymph system which releases the toxins that produce celulite and it gets rid of dirt and dry, dead skin.
I especially love this one for a few reasons:
1. It is naturally antifungal and antibacterial, it dries quickly and is great for traveling.
2. All the products from Supracor are made in California from American-made raw materials. They are sustainable, naturally antimicrobial, allergen free, non-toxic to living organisms and the environment. They’re also recyclable.

Turmeric is making health news on a daily basis these days...and for good reason! This powerful spice is full of disease prevention and healing properties.
Turmeric is a root belonging to the ginger family and is commonly found dried and ground as a spice. It has amazing anti-inflammatory properties and had been used for centuries as a medicine for a variety of diseases.
I've been making a lot of delicious Turmeric Tea and Tumeric Milk Lattes - they are a great fall mid afternoon snack...get the recipes here.
I love how healthy it is and how easy it is to get it into your diet - you only need 1/4 of a teaspoon daily to get the benefits! You can read more about Turmeric here.
These awesome, grippy yoga gloves let me practice yoga easily when I'm travelling since they are much easier and smaller to pack than a full yoga mat. With these I can simply use a towel from the hotel or guest house as a mat and the grip on the gloves lets me do any yoga practice I like.
They are also great if your hands tend to sweat in your regular yoga practice or your mat isn't as grippy as you like - they work especially great during a sweaty yoga session.
You can learn more and purchase them online at gaiam.com. They also have ypga socks available for extra grip! And yes...I have a pair of them too ;-)
