Fall was always my absolute favorite season. I mean, as a kid, summer won by default because there wasn’t any school, but the cooler weather and turning of the leaves–not to mention my birthday and the holidays right around the corner–always felt invigorating. Sometimes going back to school could feel invigorating, too. Getting to see friends every day, meeting my new classmates, trying out new clubs or sports… it wasn’t all bad! And when I started driving myself to school at 16, I’d often go out of my way for a nice hot Starbuck’s cider on the way in. (Or ask my boyfriend to bring me one.) Extra caramel, please. Phew, those things were sugary. I may not be able to indulge in that particular treat anymore, but curling up on the couch with a good book and hot mug of cider at the end of the day is still one of my favorite pastimes. Seriously, is there anything more comforting than a warm beverage on a cold day? This Pomegranate Cider is a fun twist on the traditional beverage, adding rich pomegranate juice to the mix!
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
