We’re getting into the holiday spirit- in this week’s newsletter!
Keeping it Real: Periods, Poop, and Showering
That’s right, we talked about it aaaaaall! I went there. And survived it!

Our Real Life
It was the perfect day. Perfect tree. Perfect family. I love this annual tradition of supporting local farmers! Ready or not, here comes the holidays!
This year we have TWO trees. A mini-one in the basement for the boys – filled with their star trek and toy ornaments. And my first ever (since having kids) adult-only tree upstairs. I decorated it whimsically with glittering pine cone garland, owls, and a Harry Potter sorting hat – because magic is what everyone needs at the holidays! Honestly, would you expect anything else from us?!
There’s always a little more travel around the holidays, which means we’re stocking up on plenty of healthy snacks for on-the-go! These Epic Pork Cracklings, Maple Sea Salt Rx Bars, and Roam Sticks (we get them at OSPS) are the perfect protein-packed nutrient fuel for long travel days. We packed them with us on our drive to and from the Christmas tree farm to make sure the boys were fueled and ready for tree chopping!
With the bustle of the holiday season starting, it melted my heart to catch these two snuggled together on the couch, bigger brother reading to little brother. Another great reminder about what the holidays mean to us.
Our Favorite Travel and Car Trip Snacks
Roam Sticks are one of the boys’ favorites. They are made from pasture-raised pork, are flavorful, and have a great, clean ingredient list. Perfect for little hands and car rides! We order ours from OSPS.
Power Balls are like coconut macaroons, but with the addition of nutrient-dense collagen and gelatin. They are sooo good, and we love the seasonal flavors, especially Cranberry Orange and Snickerdoodle! They come in little bags of two, which would also make great stocking stuffers. Find them —> here!
Epic Pork Crackling are a new obsession in our house. We seriously can’t get enough! The Maple Bacon Cracklings are smaller and more dense, while the Salt and Pepper and Barbecue flavors are pillowy and crunchy. We love them all! Find them here and get 20% off with code: EPICPALEOFAMILY. Or order at OSPS for shipping to Canada.
Rx Bars are an old standby of ours, and the newest flavor: Maple Sea Salt is our absolute favorite. It’s just sweet enough with a good maple flavor and a hint of salt – like salted caramel! These bars are made with egg whites for protein and a small handful of other really clean ingredients. Find them —> here!
Vital Proteins is an essential part of my health care routine, so when they came out with these single serve packs, I was stoked!! They are so much easier to carry around for traveling and ensure that I get all the nutrients I need to continue feeling my best.
