Pro Bar Meal.

26 Feb


I have a major soft spot for meal replacement bars. I am ‘on the go’ quite a bit and eat all day to top it off so meal replacement bars are a staple in my purse and car. Now finding a high quality, great tasting meal replacement bar is a whole other issue, and a vegan one at that? Good luck.

Well, I guess we are all in luck because Pro Bar has made a super delicious, super healthy meal replacement bar that I think most can get behind. These organic non-gmo, vegan, all natural, high fiber, high protein meal replacement bars are the ish. Chock full of good stuff like oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dried fruits, the Pro Bar Meal Replacement combines a ton of natural ingredients that taste amazing and are super good for you.

Clocking in at 390 calories with 22 grams of fat , 6 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein, these things fill you up easily and keep you full until your next feeding. They are also a great source of Iron and a good source of Calcium and Vitamin C.

You can find them at Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, your local health foods store, some sporting goods stores such as REI and of course a bunch of places on-line. Read more about them below…


The Turbaned Tornado Retires At Age 101.

25 Feb


Fauja Singh aka The Turbaned Tornado is one of my favorite people ever. The famous 101 year old marathon runner has decided that after almost 13 years of running marathons, he is retiring from the sport. He will not be retiring from running, he just wishes to take his daily runs down to a more sane distance of 8-9 miles per day.

After completing his last marathon over the weekend in Hong Kong, Mr. Singh was quoted saying that he ‘felt so fresh, so good and so full of power (today).’ And have no fear, The Turban Tornado is not retiring on a down note, he actually ran a faster time in his last marathon this year then he did in the same marathon last year. He managed to shave 30 seconds off his mile time, coming in at just under 15 minutes per mile this year.

Since he will no longer be in the news for his amazing marathon accomplishments, Mr. Singh hopes the public will not forget about him. I am sure this will not happen, his legend will live on. If you care to read about his life and how he came to be a marathon runner at age 89, click on the link to his Facebook page below and buy his book. I am sure it will be worth it.

All I can really say is, Mr. Singh, you will NEVER be forgotten. You are the truth!!! You are what so many people aspire to be, healthy, active and happy And you manage to do it all over the age of 100!!!

So here’s to many more years of running, loving and vegetarian living, Mr. Singh, you deserve it :) Like His Facebook Page And Buy His Book!!!


Java Jacket.

The Java Jacket is the O.G. Eco-friendly coffee sleeve. This family run business takes their impact on the Earth seriously, and go figure, this idea came into fruition by accident.

In 1991 the founder of the biz dropped his hot paper cup of coffee on this lap, simply because the cup was too hot and there ya go, Java Jacket was born. Colleen and Jay then set up shop in their home, using it as Java Jacket Headquarters. They proceeded to sell their product from the trunk of their car to local coffee shops. (I told you they were O.G.) And the rest is Eco-Friendly living meets hot cup of coffee to go history.

Now over 20 years later Java Jackets are all over the place, literally. There have been over 4 billion sold to date and they are going strong. Java Jackets can be made with many different designs on them, your company logo or even just plain if that’s your style. Add to that they are recyclable, compostable and made with 100% recycled materials. Obviously ;)

On top of making Earth friendly products, they also give back to their community and support many causes such as The Nature Conservatory, The Cheetah Conservation Foundation and The Portland Global Initiative.

So there you see, a Java Jacket is way more than just a coffee sleeve… Java Jacket Homepage.

No Lally Gaggin.

Andy Lally

Andy Lally is a top-notch race car driver who has manged to win the Daytona 24, 4 times and the Rolex Series, 3 times. His 4 Daytona wins are chased down with 3 second place finishes as well and he is currently the only driver who has accomplished this feat. He was also chosen as NASCAR Sprint Cup Rookie Of The Year in 2011. Andy also happens to be vegan since 2009, much to the dismay of many racing fans.

Mr. Lally always had pets when he was growing up and is very informed about his food and where it comes from. He evokes a sense of compassion that is energizing and his choice to go vegan, after being vegetarian for many years, all came down to ethics. He feels that it is truly unethical to eat animals and that if more people saw how animals were killed and packaged, fewer people would be eating meat.

Not one to wear his veganism on his sleeve, Andy keeps his opinions to himself unless he is probed. Once he is probed, he is not afraid to educate the masses. Andy is the type of vegan we need more of, humble, thankful and willing to take a little dirt for what he loves.

EO Products.

21 Feb


Since St Ives is no longer my partner in skin care crime, I have had to branch out and find new products to replace my former stash. So far, so good. I have actually found replacements to most of my former products but my favorite new line has to be EO Products. This line of skin care products is all natural, cruelty-free and the company is family owned.

Their line of products ranges from shampoos and conditioner to soaps and body lotions. All EO products are made from the finest herbs and oils that are distilled right from the fresh flower, leaves, seed or bark of the plant. Nothing they use had ever been modified from the way Mother Nature intended, nothing synthetic is ever added.

EO Products are made in the USA, based in Marin County, California they operate out of a ‘Certified Organic’ facility that employes over 30 people. They make over 100 different products for you to choose from and they can be found all over the web and in many stores. I know Harmon carries tons of times from EO’s lines, that is where I have been stocking up.

Super Informative Website Below… EO Products Homepage.
