Happy February Fam! I wanted to let you know that many of the brands that I have partnered with are having some amazing Valentines Day Sales that you don't want to miss!
To me, Valentine's Day is a day to put out extra love into the universe whether that means gift giving, acts of service, gifting someone your time etc. Valentine's is for EVERYONE! Shop for yourself, your significant other, your best friend, your Galentine, a first responder, teacher etc. I'm so happy to be promoting brands that I truly love & that we use in our home on a regular basis. By supporting these brands, most of which are small businesses, you're voting to keep them up & running. Their sales are intentional & they are excited to offer you these savings! SO....grab that hot cocoa (or your favorite beverage), find a comfy place to sit & check out all the wonderful brands that I have consciously curated below. *Don't forget to also use the additional COUPON CODES (where applicable) at checkout that I provided for you below!

Coffee is mostly treated as an industrial crop & often commercial coffee is sprayed with pesticides & sometimes left to mold or ferment before it’s shipped. Purity only sources organic beans & tests all green coffee for mold, pesticides & Ochratoxin A (which can cause kidney damage).
Purity’s founders made a commitment to freshness, only storing green beans for 15 months, roasting only according to the number of orders received & shipping the roasted beans to the customer within 48 hours of roasting in bags flushed with nitrogen. Purity Coffee is the only coffee Mama Joy & I will drink.
However, organic coffee beans were merely to be the starting point. To deliver a coffee optimized for health benefits, the organic coffee needed to also be specialty-grade. Watch the video below to learn more!
OLIPOP is the healthy alternative to soda you've been searching for. ... All the flavors are wonderful and sweet, despite only sporting 35–45 calories per can.

Make your Valentine's Day super yummy by making something delicious +healthy from Primal Kitchen!
After achieving new heights of wellness + vitality through real-food eating, Mark Sisson set out to create the world’s best-tasting, real-food pantry staples, starting with a mayonnaise made with avocado oil. Today, Primal Kitchen delivers on its promise of uncompromisingly delicious condiments, dressings/marinades, avocado oils, protein bars, collagen protein powder + bars, and whey protein that focus on fats we love, clean ingredients + uncompromisingly delicious flavor.
Primal Kitchen products are unlike any others that you’ll find in the grocery store. The entire collection aims to satiate exquisitely with real, simple, exceptional ingredients—like avocado oil, collagen, oil of oregano & apple cider vinegar—that contain no dairy, gluten, grain, refined sugar or soy.
As Mark would say, EAT LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT, because it does. So, what does that mean? It means that food can lead you down a path of disease, pain + despair. Or, it means that it can lift you up to new heights so you can find the greatest amount of pleasure, joy + contentment from every moment possible. It means enjoying excellent health + wellness, loving time with family + friends, valuing a good night’s sleep, relishing a brisk workout, appreciating better productivity at work + savoring every bite of food you eat!
Primal Kitchen also has tons of delicious recipes on their website organized by lifestyle: Keto, Paleo, Whole30, Primal (Meat Eaters), Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free, No Dairy and broken down by category: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Beverages, Brunch, Salad, Sides, Snacks, Desserts and Meal Planning!
Recess is not a CBD brand, rather, a company with a mission to provide a way to help their consumers feel “calm, cool and collected.”
Each of their all-natural sparkling waters (blood orange, black cherry, coconut lime, pomegranate hibiscus, peach ginger, and blackberry chai) are formulated with filtered water, 10 mg of broad-spectrum hemp extract (CBD), and three other adaptogenic ingredients: American ginseng to improve memory, lemon balm to boost vitality and L-theanine to reduce stress.
Recess also includes a line of self-made apparel (“realitywear”) and ongoing limited release collaborations with top like-minded brands.
