Happy Fri-yay, y’all! We’re back with another installment of Friday Shout Outs where we give you the low down on all the things we love from foods, to instagrammers, to products.
This weekend I am headed out to Sackets Harbor to run a half marathon! This will be my first race since getting hit by a car in 2013 so I am definitely nervous but super excited to get back into racing. Stay tuned for a blog post next week on my training process. Meanwhile, feel free to creep on my instagram for updates on race day and while you’re in the stalking process check out some of my favorite things…
Nourishing Joy– Kresha, supermom of three and blogger joined us on Nutrition Genius Radio (episode to be released 9/2/15) to discuss how to make healthy school lunches and be intentional as parents and people. We love Kresha for her real food philosophy and the positivity she brings to every interaction. Anything you read from her will leave you feeling nourished in mind, body, and spirit so make sure you stalker her, I mean follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too!
Ox and Stone– Remember that time I ate crickets? I did it at this kick-ass Latin kitchen in Rochester, New York. In addition to crickets, their tapas menu contains pig ears and bone marrow and you can get entrees like braised oxtail and traditional paella. Their fried calamari is coated in corn meal, not wheat flour, and the barbacoa tacos are mind blowing. Make sure you split the margarita punch bowl with at least three friends, it’s enormous. Tell them Pearl sent ya.
Pearl’s Pomegranate Margaritas– Speaking of margaritas, since it is ALMOST fall it’s time to start incorporating some fall foods into your kitchen. Feel free to start with this real food recipe.
Dirty Mouth Toothpowder– Okay so you know we had Trina Felber of Primal Life Organics on the podcast earlier this month (Part 1 and Part 2) but I cannot stop raving about her and her products. I’m currently super obsessed with her Dirty Mouth Toothpowder which is full of trace minerals to help re-mineralize your teeth and contains no chemicals, dyes, or artificial flavors. It comes in multiple different flavors (I’m currently using the peppermint) but all of them are flavored with essential oils, not franken-flavors so you can feel confident you wont be absorbing weird things into your system each time your brush your teeth.
Audible– Ever wonder how a Nutrition Genius becomes so genius-like? We read a lot. I also happen to be in the car a lot due to my constant need to travel so Audible has become one of my favorite things. For those of you that have been living under a rock, Audible is a company that produces audio books and has made it ridiculously easy to get smarter when you’re on the road. I have a membership where I get credits monthly but you can also choose options where you get them all at once. I like to listen to books while I’m getting ready in the morning, driving, and running.
Alright my friends that’s all I have for you today! Wish me luck this weekend!
