Being balanced in every area of life is so ridiculously hard but so important and something I strive for. Food is no exception when it comes to balance. I love chatting with people about flavors, smells, textures, and health benefits of food. I love the memories surrounding food and the people who gather for it. I’m teaming up with The Toasted Pine Nut to share a few recipes that not only look delicious, but are delicious! She’s sweet as a button and her recipes will make you feel fit and fab with every bite!

Deserted Island + Medicine Cabinet Items

Island-finalIt would be a TON of fun to be stranded on a deserted island with Erika and Shay! I feel like we would never tire of things to chat about! There are definitely some things I would like to bring along though. If I could plan ahead, of course. 😉  This week, we’re talking all about medicine cabinet items! What are my go-to’s and my can’t live withouts?!

One. I’m obsessed with this stuff. I put it on my lips so many times throughout the day. I have it in my purse, on my desk at school, and on my nightstand. It would be along for the ride!

Two. I’m not sure if moisturizer technically counts as a medicine cabinet item so I decided two and three were a tie. 😉 (This is also another great moisturizer that I use every day. It never fails!)

Three. My allergies are insane! If I’m stranded, the least I can do is not be sneezing the entire time.

Four. I love, love, love this sunscreen and it would definitely make it on the list of things I would bring on an island. But ladies, I need your help!2016-04-10_0001

I’m trying to find a sunscreen with less toxins. I’ve heard great things about COOLA sunscreen, Lancer Sun ShieldArcona Sunscreen, Raw Elements Sunscreen, and MDSolarSciences.

Has anyone tried these? I’m up for any recommendations! 🙂
