Giveaway happening now at Instagram.com/SociallySteph

The CBD products I’m taking to stay on track during quarantine & kick chronic pain have worked wonders on my mind & body with added benefits I wasn’t even expecting. I was introduced to Clean Remedies when I didn’t know what else to do. I was experiencing major chronic pain to the point where a daily walk was a challenge. I tried foam rolling, epsom salt baths, ice packs and even had to pop a few Advil (which I only take for emergency situations as this was!!) I knew about CBD, but never really used it so I did some extensive research. Thankfully, a boutique store in my town was open & I picked up Clean Remedies products at Kerwell in Downers Grove.

Side note, with all the changes of COVID the landscape of media & fitness was changing rapidly! I put immense pressure on myself to show up online. I wanted to be hopping on live workouts & prioritizing movement, but I couldn’t 😭. I was completely shocked when in less than 24 hours of using the 900MG CBD oil & the gummies I felt immediate relief. The only word that comes to mind is WOW — it seriously worked like magic! My pain seriously subsided, muscle aches and inflammation went down drastically. If you’re feeling this same way OR you’re having troubles sleeping or feeling anxious I highly suggest looking into Clean Remedies further. 

If you’re anything like me I research the heck out of things before I purchase, join or even collaborate on anything.  Immediately after I started taking the products I was so intrigued and excited about the real results it brought me I decided I needed to hop on the phone with the founders myself. Their mission, story & the personal interactions I had with them are all truly amazing. Having connected with them I grew an even bigger passion & love for their product line because it works! There’s a lot of junk and gimmicky products out there and I am happy to report that Clean Remedies is a product to trust and believe in. Give it a try yourself & let me know your results. CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in easing symptoms of many common health issues, including anxiety, depression, acne and heart disease.

Up your wellness game. Here’s a few more benefits CBD can bring to your life.

  1. Reduce inflammation in your body
  2. Studies indicate that CBD may be able to help with high blood pressure
  3. CBD oil has shown promise as a treatment for both depression and anxiety, leading many who live with these disorders to become interested in this natural approach.
  4. Several human studies have found that a combination of CBD is effective in treating pain related to multiple sclerosis and arthritis.

I have an amazing code for all of you to reap the benefits, too! With code steph20 you’ll get 20% off any purchase. **My favorites are the gummies (eat them like candy!) & the 900mg CBD oil which I use myself daily.

Alright everyone, I’m going to be honest. These are legit! Plus, you’re sneaking a veggie in there and this makes me want to eat the whole pan (don’t do that tho!) The zucchini is actually incredibly moist so if you put it in baked goods like these it’s delicious and you can’t even taste it!!

This is from True Roots cookbook, but I recently swapped out the almond butter for PB and I like them 10x better. Here it is & let me know if you’re a fan:

Zucchini Blondies Recipe

1 egg
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt (This salt is KEY! πŸ”‘ )
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract (I like to do 1 tsp!)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I love love LOVE Lilly’s Sugar Free)
1 large zucchini, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 8Γ—8 baking dish with parchment paper, or grease with coconut oil or butter.

In a large bowl, mix the almond butter, egg, salt, baking soda, coconut sugar and vanilla until combined. Fold in chocolate chips or zucchini. Pour into dish and press down to spread.

The most simple recipes are my favorite. You know, the ones that take very little time, have a few ingredients and come out tasting super delicious. Here’s one that I love making, especially in the summertime. It’s such a refreshing summer breakfast. It’s chockfull of healthy ingredients, very satiating and satisfying. Plus, you can modify and swap things for your own preference. If you don’t like PB add Almond Butter, if you don’t like banana add another fruit you love. So, let’s stop talking and get to making these. I usually make enough for the week so you’ll want about 5-6 mason jars. Grab & share the recipe below:

Have fun & stay healthy! If you make this recipe I’d love to see it. Be sure to tag me on all socials at @SociallySteph. I really hope you like this one as much as I do. XO

Move over Coffee, there’s a new drink it town. Lately, I have been giving myself a break from coffee and I realized that the daily habit wasn’t promoting overall wellness which is what I strive for. As you may have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I love a frothy oat milk cappuccino. On my recent trip to Florida my husband and I really felt this pull to drink less coffee, and so we did. But here’s something I have always loved that I need to share with you all. It’s called Punky Juice-ster, from Real Good Stuff Co. in Chicago.

While I may have cut down on coffee consumption & spending on a daily $5 latte (because wow does that add up) I will be honest, this drink costs $11. #YIKES. But, it’s a wonderful drink to treat yourself with because it’s filled with chockfull of nutrients & antioxidants. Including Chia, Matcha, Coconut Nectar, Mint & Chlorophyll.

8 major benefits of Matcha are:

  • Packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg
  • Boosts metabolism and burns calories
  • Detoxifies effectively and naturally
  • Calms the mind and relaxes the body
  • Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
  • Enhances mood and aids in concentration
  • Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

What do you think? Are you a matcha tea lover or are you sticking to coffee?? Let me know in the comments & don’t forget to connect with me on Instagram at @sociallysteph.
