Happy Sunday, kittehs! Last weekend was a complete slice of avocado sauce heaven! If you have never heard of avocado sauce, you must give Kumana’s Be Sweet, Be Hot, and Be Original vegan avocado sauces a try! Each bottle is made of 2/3 avocados!
Thanks to Live Talent Now I was blessed with the opportunity to model with Kumana at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, CA! Kumana founders, Francisco Pavan (far right, photo below) & Roberto Pavan (far left, photo below), grew up in Venezuela and have incorporated their secret Venezuelan family recipe, chalked full of tasty spices, into their sublime avocado sauces!
If you are on the go x365, you will definitely appreciate how fast you can add some tasty avocado sauce to your favorite dishes and snacks, likeeee avocado toast. You don’t have to spend the time you don’t have, peeling and slicing up that avocado to strategically place on your bread. You can just drizzle on your favorite avocado sauce, devour it, and be out the door! Also, you can’t beat the fact that it’s only 5 calories per teaspoon, 0 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar. What?!! I go through a bottle of this stuff in less than a wk! Lately I have been adding it to my toast, chili… and even my homemade ramen! Feel free to add it to your Tuesday Tacos, Monday Meatballs, or Friday Fajitas! I cannot wait to use them as a marinade for one of my favorite entrées: baked salmon. If I had to recommend a Kumana flavor to try, I would say to try them all. They are that delicious. If you are on the hunt for a bottle of their avocado goodness, they are currently available on Amazon and will be sold in Safeway stores in Northern Cali in July 2018. I will be picking up a few bottles in Norcal on my next road trip back home for sureeee!!! Have a great week, loves!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ~Kelle
Aloha, everyone! Weekends would definitely not be the same without fresh coffee….and especially Kona RedHawaiian coffee!! We had a blast at the Natural Products Expo West last weekend down in Anaheim, CA!
Kona Red coffee is made with Kona coffee beans cultivated on the big island of Hawaii. My favorite Kona Red cold brewed blend is the Hawaiian Vanilla. It is only 25 calories, non-dairy, vegan, gluten-free, rich in antioxidants, & only 5g of sugar. Cold brewed coffee is less acidic & contains twice as much caffeine as hot brewed coffee! Who knew!?!! The taste of this blend is smooth and delicious. Some iced coffees can be overly sweet, and this one gets it just right! You can also add your own dairy preference to it and make it a latté! Yummmmmy!!!! Kona Red can be found at your local Bristol Farms, Albertson’s, Safeway, etc etc :)))
It was such a fun weekend and more on Kona Red’s delicious and healthy products will be coming soon in a future post! Thank you so much to Live Talent & Kona Red for the awesome booking!! Wishing everyone a rockin weekend!!! MAHALO!!!! XO ~Kelle
Season greetings, everyone! I hope you all had a beautiful Thanksgiving with your friends and family! We spent the holiday in Norcal and got in as much relaxing and eating as our tummies would allow! Between the Norwegian quiche, brussels sprouts corn bread stuffing, caramelized onion dip, deviled eggs, & cheesy bacon dip, I was in a food coma in no time! One of my favorite things to do with leftover turkey is to add melted cheese, sea salt & pepper to it. So delish!!! May the holidays bring you lots of joy, laughter, yummy noms, & good fun. I also hope you enjoy my Thanksgiving Day Vlog. Have a blessed week, loves! ❤ ❤ xoxo ~Kelle
Yesterday was pretty epic at Idea World 2016! We met some great health, beauty, & fitness companies yesterday at the LA Convention Center! One of our first stops was the Plant Fusion booth. Their protein powders contain entirely plant-based protein and taste AMAZING! Check them out at PlantFusion.net for how you, too, can become a FUSIONISTA! Love my Plant Fusion water bottle with metal spring. The metal spring shakes up and mixes ingredients without needing a spoon or blender. Brilliant for the days when I have two seconds to eat.
Then I climbed gauntlet style monkey bars, and decided to swing & drop off once I got to the bar that was about 12 ft up in the air. I have a sublime fear of heights!!
Talk about an arm and ab workout!! Hoolahooping for an ab work is also fantastic. I couldn’t walk by FXP Fitness without giving their hoola workout a try!
Another fab company is ShowerPill! Founded in San Francisco, they wanted to develop a way to clean up after a sweaty workout,
especially for those times when a shower is just nowhere in sight. Thank you for the box of athletic body wipes, ShowerPill! They will come in handy on my runs & hikes, & are the perfect size for tossing in my workout bag! After working up a sweat in the fitness contest booths, I definitely built up an appetite. One of my favorite food booths was the Soupure booth!
My other fave flave is their Strawberry Cashew soup. So yummy! Thank you, Soupure!! We finished the day with some fun times in the Propel booth! Their fruity waters are always refreshing! Idea World is open through tomorrow and is a great way to get motivated to workout and eat healthy! Have a rockin weekend, my lovelies! XO ~Kelley

Last week at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, CA, I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful women of Pacifica! Such inspirational women!!
Pacifica’s Founder, Brook Harvey
Pacifica’s Art Director, Ixtla Vaughan
100% Vegan & cruelty free, this all natural beauty brand has been one of my favorites for quite some time. At the Expo, Kimberli, Brook,& Ixtla gave me their new Dream Big mascara & some other products to try out.
Their coconut facial cleansing wipes and multi-mineral BB Cream have been favorites of mine for a while, so I couldn’t wait to try out some of their other items above. Pacifica will be launching their new haircare line at the Ulta store opening in Salinas, CA on April 8th, 2016! In light of the new launch, they sent me some of their new products! Here is my Pacifica Unboxing video:
Pacifica’s Devocean lipstick is in the shade Beach Goth and makes the most perfect lip stain when applied lightly! Vamp it up by adding a few more layers of this gorgeous berry shade!
I wouldn’t say it is a matte lipstick, but I also wouldn’t say it is a sheer one, which makes it perfect for day/night longevity as well as for keeping my lips hydrated. Next, their Dream Big adjustable wand mascara is revolutionary!! Just twist the bottom of the wand handle and you get a long wand for lengthening lashes!
OR twist it down to make the wand shrink to a shorter wand for voluminous lashes. I am also lovinggggg the shorter wand for applying the mascara to my bottom lashes!
To sum it up, this mascara is GENIUS. I also love the serum type formula. It makes for a smooth application, & doesn’t clump! The bristles are firm, short, comb-like, & don’t miss a single lash! ❤ that! When bristles are too long & bushy, it sometimes gets product on my eyelids & shadow which requires touching up. Dream Big mascara does not do that! Nice work, Pacifica! Included in the bohemian-styled Pacifica boxes were two skincare items: Rice Bright Skin Luminizing Cleansing Paste and Quinoa Sensitive Face Wash.
I’ve been using the Glow Baby Face Scrub and Sea Foam Cleanser (shown at the top of page) over the past week and have been loving them both thus far. The Sea Foam cleanser’s coconut scent is divine. It’s not too sweet-smelling, which I really love. It’s the perfect coconut aroma. I’ll be trying out the Rice Bright & Quinoa Cleansers asap! Which leads me to a SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t yet seen my unboxing vid! The yummy scent of their new Coconut Power Hair Care Products smells identical to the Sea Foam face cleanser! Soooooooo yummmmmy!!!
Some more of their new haircare line in this unboxing included deep conditioning products:
My hair is always on the dryer side from color-treating and styling, so I’ll be sure to let you know how these products do for S.O.S. on my hair. I am big lover of kale and use it a lot in my The Daily Vitamin smoothies! What you eat plays a big role in hair and skin, as does what you apply to your hair and skin. The more natural, the better! So I absolutely cannot wait to try Pacifica’s new natural Kale Shampoo & Conditioner. It has a light sweet scent of sweet kale with lovely minty notes.
I also unboxed Pacifica’s new hair styling products:
There was not one product in the unboxing that did not smell like a dream come true! It will take me some time to try out these new products, but I will provide feedback for you as soon as I try them all out. I hope you guys enjoyed this Spring Pacifica unboxing! If you are interested in Pacifica products, here is my Daily Vitamin discount code:
Today I whipped up s’more of my Chocolate Coco Peanut Butter dip in my blender! This time I added cacao nibs to this yummy superfoodrecipe. Feel free to increase the amounts of your favorite ingredients in this raw and fiber-ful dish.
This recipe has a long shelf life when stored in an airtight container, so it won’t be going bad anytime soon. This dip is great paired with fresh fruit, so delish on crackers & sandwiches, and a great healthy frosting on cakes & cupcakes.
Basically: it’s my version ofhealthy Nutella! I hope you guys enjoy it!
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp Navitas Naturals raw cacao powder
2 tbsp raw peanut butter
2 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
cacao nibs (also optional)
Blend all ingredients with pulse mode until desired consistency.
