Non-Caffeinated Energy and a Giveaway Winner

Happy Thursday!

I’m over here trying to ward off this congestion/runny nose situation I have going on. It’s disrupting my sleep and this girl needs her sleep. I’m staying positive though that I’m going to kick this thing to the curb asap!

Since I’m off of caffeine while I let my gut heal, I have to look to other modes of fuel for energy…

… like vitamin-packed smoothies. In this one we have a clementine, blueberries, raspberries, almond milk, and amasai probiotic. I’m hoping to write a post more about amasai and other beyond organic products in the future. I just started the amasai and will be starting the terrain, and I want to wait until I’m more familiar with the products and see how they work for me before I share with all of you!



And I definitely want to chat with you all more about Young Living Essential Oils! I have fallen in love with the oils so much that I’ve decided to become a distributor!

To help rid this congestion/runny nose I am diffusing Thieves and Lemon essential oils. I’m also sipping on some raspberry leaf tea. Does this not sound like the recipe to wellness if you’ve ever heard one?! I’m not going to let a little congestion get me down!


beverages and diffuser


I’m going to kick this thing. Water, tea, balanced meals, rest, essential oils and I’m thinking soup for lunch is in order. Bring on the liquids!

Question: Any natural remedies that you swear by for clearing up congestion?!

Enough about me, let’s talk about you, and Moose.


I asked Moose to give me a number between 1 and 44. He continued to stare blankly at the television like a teenager so I had to take matters into my own hands. Random number generator helped me to pick the winner of the one-month (24 bags) supply of pophips and the lucky winner is….

JORDAN!! Congrats, Jordan!

Please email me at within 48 hours with your mailing address and popchips will send you your box of goodies!

Thank you to all who entered!!


Have a great day!

      It tastes very similar yes. I pulled this info from that talked about amasai: Jordan is using old world methods to keep his dairy products under 101 degrees so, technically raw, and killing bad bacteria with a very low heat process that is longer, to allow the bad bacteria to die off, without killing the vitamins and proteins that are in the milk. Then, he ferments it with 30 probiotics for way longer than industry standard, to develop this great product that has very low lactose (because the lactose breaks down in fermentation), very high in vitamins, Omega 3 fats, and protein. The animals are kept under humane conditions and only milked as much as their green diet and their individual systems will allow. The result? A whole milk (4.5%), kefir type of product that is supposed to be digestible by even the worst digestive tracts among us.

        Great thanks a lot 🙂

  1. Boo for congestion! I thought I was getting over my cold thing until last night when I kept waking up because I couldn’t breathe! I blame the winter. (more specifically the Minnesota winter haha)

    Hope you feel better soon! All I do is amp up on Vitamin E, drink tea and try to get the most sleep possible! 🙂
