It’s time for yet another monthly Worthwhile Wednesdays! I started this post a few months back to share some of the products I’ve been loving lately and it’s now become a blog staple! This post will share everything from food products I’m loving, restaurants I can’t get enough of, beauty products I’m testing out, gym equipment I’m using daily, and anything in between! And if YOU have any products that you’re obsessed with, please feel free to sharing them in the comments section below!
Today I want to kick things off with a makeup must-have! I’ve always wanted to be able to contour for years now, but I do not have that skill nor do I want to learn it. BUT I finally found this NYX Wonder Stick which only cost 12 freaking dollars!! It’s double sided, so it has a dark side for the shadow areas around your face then a lighter side for highlight areas like under your areas and the ridge of your nose. I bought mine in the light color and it works great for my skin tone! It’s such a great product and an insanely cheap price point!
I’ve talked about this next product probably 398231919 times. It’s one of my favorite food brands, maybe ever. It’s called Majestic Garlic and it’s this creamy spread that’s made with super simply ingredients – 100% USA organic fresh raw garlic, organic cold milled flaxseed, organic safflower oil, organic sea salt, and fresh lemon juice. That’s it. And it’s literally the tastiest dip I’ve ever had. I eat it with plantain chips, mix it into beans, add it to bowls, and lick the container once it’s almost all gone. I love it with all my heart. It belongs in every fridge.
Now I’ve been talking a lot about Athletic Greens lately and that’s because I cut out caffeine almost five months ago and sometimes want something else to sip on in the mornings. And Athletic Greens has become my new morning best friend. Whenever I have work to do right away or I have a morning workout, I drink Athletic Greens on an empty stomach and it gets me focused and gives me a bit more energy. And for a green drink, it actually tastes really good! It kind of tastes like some sort of juice, maybe apple juice, with a little hint of cocoa powder. It makes me feel great and it’s packed with a shit ton of vitamins and minerals, so I feel good about drinking it, too!
Age is a bitch, man. Especially on your neck. I heard somewhere that your neck ages 7x faster than your face. I could be completely making that up, but I do remember that stat. And that probably has to do with us kind of forgetting about our neck. We put all the skincare products all over our face and get treatments done to our face, but the neck is sometimes an after thought. Luckily my esthetician introduced me to Revision Skincare Nectifirm and my neck is already looking better! It helps work on that crepey skin that begins to show up as you age. I love it so much and love the brand even more! I use so many of their products and they are all truly fantastic!
And last but definitely not least – BEANS! When I started the bean protocol almost 5 months ago, I was eating simply beans without any flavor whatsoever. I would just add a little salt to some rinsed black beans and that was it. But now that I’m implementing the protocol into my daily life, I’ve started buying A Dozen Cousins beans nonstop. This company knows beans and they CRUSH IT. The beans are so tasty and it makes eating healthy so much easier. Now I don’t have to plan my meals quite as much because I have flavor all ready to go in each pouch. If you haven’t tried this brand, I can’t recommend them enough!
Hope you loved this month’s Worthwhile Wednesdays!! Don’t forget – if you have any products that you think are worth talking about, share them in the comments below! I’m always ready to try something new and find out about brands who are crushing it!
