Maca


Maca is considered one of the ‘super foods” around the world. Maca is a plant that is grown at the extreme altitude of 12,000 to 15,000 feet in the Andes mountains where only selective plants like potatoes and alpine grasses grow. There are many benefits about this root for starts it has been used over 2,000 years by native people of the region and helped to improve fertility in women and men. These roots adapt to your age and gender making it the perfect superfood! This powder can be added to smoothies, cereal, and oatmeal. It can also be used in baking and for bread. The most common form of this root is in powder form. Maca roots have a positive effect on hormone balance, immune system, memory, focus, energy levels, and a health booster for many. Maca has a long history of being a good healing nutrition for medical benefits. The native Andes believe this root can make you feel more “alive” energetic and leaves someone with a better sense of understanding. It helps elevate the “feel good” endorphins which in turn make someone feel good about themselves and are in a much better mood. This plant-based nutrient includes protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, and many others.
Every morning I like to put this in my shake. I don’t usually eat anything in the morning so being able to have something as nutrients as this in my shakes have helped a lot. Some of the personal effects I feel are being more awake, having more energy, being able to stay focused better, and also feeling better about myself. Another amazing thing about this product is that it is gluten free, dairy free and a raw food. I do not have to worry about what I am putting in my body. I highly recommend this product

Guardian Headphone

 

I have tried so many pairs of headphones, and finding one as sturdy and as handy as these Plugfones Guardian earphones. I use them to listen to audiobooks, music, TV, Netflix and Youtube on my phone. Where ever I am these headphones are. These headphones have been through everything with me and I’m loving it, I know I can rely on them. The sound is great, the vocals are so clear (which is one of my favorite parts).
The sound quality is great, it makes it easier to enjoy a movie or my college lecture and I don’t have to go back and rewatch it because I heard it clearly the first time. It’s not scratchy or going in and out which makes it wonderful to work with. Another great thing is that these earphones block out a good amount of outside noise, making it more comfortable to enjoy your show or music you are watching. Also when mowing the lawn I don’t have to listen to the annoying lawnmower (thank the Lord).
The earphone itself is very comfy, it can fit comfortably in your ears with a motorcycle helmet on. Which I have found very hard to find if it fits comfortably inside a motorcycle helmet it usually hurts my ears so I was super thrilled when I found out it did not hurt!! Not only are they comfy but they are also professional and stylish. I can wear them in any setting and feel comfortable with the looks. I highly recommend this product. These earphones are priced at $34.99. They would be a great gift for Christmas, birthdays, even an anniversary, or if you just feel like spoiling yourself.

Selectivor!

Having a large family it is hard to plan an vent we can all attended much less trying to find something to eat. Of course when the family finally get a chance to comes together you will want to make everyone happy and their food preferences satisfied as in leaving full!
Selectivor is such a simpler and easier way of organizing your eating preferences, share them with others and find similar foods everyone can enjoy. I think the name is adorable because it reminds me of a “carnivore” which makes me think of dinosaurs. Very clever name picking, however the name is just one of the many added bonuses of this product.
On Selectivor you able to create your own custom eating profile! For staters you will only fill out three short sentences. These sentences are selected from 80 physician-curated template and almost 600 hundred foods. Which makes it convince to know what is okay and what is not to bring to the family dinner! I loved making my profile, and the fact I knew I would be felling everyone’s stomach. Another amazing thing about making your very own custom profile is the fact I am able to put it on private so only close family can view it. I love this because I do not feel exposed or as if I’m leaving anyone out when fixing my meals.
For our last family reunion Selectivor came in such handy! I am so impressed and would recommended this to anyone. I was thrilled to serve things I KNEW would enjoy instead of having to call everyone or messaging them saying “Will you eat this dessert or that dessert”. This is definitely something worth trying!!
