Natural Products Expo 2018 Anaheim

With more natural brands launching online and more consumers than ever buying healthy and natural products there, too, it makes sense to have a digital presence that is both informative and entertaining. The brands that are strategically winning on social media are those that use multiple platforms to engage fans, show some personality and inspire healthy living through photography, video, purpose-driven campaigns, and, of course, #hashtags.

Check out the top 5 brands that have caught the digital eye of thousands of health enthusiasts and also grabbed our attention leading up to and during Natural Products Expo West 2018.

1. The Stanley Brothers on progress and potential of the CBD industry. The Stanley brothers of Colorado helped put the health benefits of CBD on the public’s radar back when their hemp extract that was high in CBD content and extremely low in THC content, now known as Charlotte’s Web, made headlines because of its apparent effectiveness in helping some children with autism and debilitating seizure disorders.

We caught up with three of the brothers at the CBD Summit at Natural Products Expo West to hear their thoughts about the potential benefits of the flourishing CBD category for the health of people.

2. Chobani LLC, maker of America’s No. 1 Greek yogurt brand and the second largest overall yogurt manufacturer in the U.S., has announced today the members of its Spring 2018 class for the Chobani Incubator. The third and largest Chobani Incubator class to date, with nine food startups, is made up of companies that are disrupting and improving high-potential food categories in the U.S., from new and innovative snack products like simple seed-based bars or peanut butter protein puffs, to healthier energy drink and smoothie options to nutritional foods that can help kids learn to love vegetables.

3. Matchabar when your mission is to bring matcha to the people, which it is for New York-based Matchabar, then getting social to keep fans engaged and motivated to find better energy by drinking matcha is a must. Drinking beautiful cups of an agate green elixir that has caffeine, antioxidants, and amino acid L-Theanine to support a cool, calm, and collected feeling.

4. Natures Path, a brandthat proves breakfast can be beautiful especially by using social media. With fun-stop-motion photography and mandala-style, Natures Path products are pleasing to the eye and the brand blossoms with topics from reducing sugar to organic gardening.

5. Purely Elizabeth, a granola company that just keeps reinventing itself. The new line of Vibrant Oats, which can make a morning superfood bowl an energetic shade of blue, pink or yellow (from natural mix-ins, such as spirulina powder) has become the best- in- the – industry appeal to on-the-go health driven products.

When you’ve got a craving for USDA organic sweet or savoury snacks Natural Products Expo is a social giveaway matches made in heaven.

Intuitive Thursday Thoughts

According to Albert Einstein, “The only real valuable thing is intuition.” Why is that? Because our intuition is a unique, powerful, internal guidance system (much like a GPS) that guides us through every decision we face–if we will be aware, listen, and respond.

The voice of inner knowing exists inside everyone. As we trust our ability to become aware, listen, and respond, we find treasures of knowledge, answers to challenging questions, and solutions to some of life’s most difficult problems.

Developing our intuition typically happens in stages. First, we must become aware that this inner knowing exists. A personal sixth sense is activated by training your awareness to become sharper and receive more information from others. You begin this process by learning how to expand your consciousness and better understand the way your body takes in and responds to energy.

Intuitive living is the art of developing your awareness to be a highly sophisticated receiver of vibrations that will give you more accurate data to work with as you interact with people. As we begin to recognize our intuitive voice, we discover that it’s necessary for us to exist in an environment where we can hear it. This is the second stage–learning to listen.

When our lives (and our minds) are cluttered with static from the outside world (disruptive music, television, people, internet and telephone input, substance misuse, unhealthy eating, and negative communication) we become so overwhelmed that we often do not hear our inner voice. By simply “turning off” or “shutting down” disruptive energy and paying attention, we begin to connect to this powerful source.

Those who are best able to act on their intuition are people who live a balanced and peaceful life.

Why? Because when we have more peace of mind (which comes through balanced living) we are better equipped to take action (such as, we’re more trusting, less afraid, and not so controlling). So relax, exercise, and meditate. Don’t overwork and avoid any addictions. And be sure to know the facts and not be overly influenced by fears. Fears create illusions that often misguide and they typically leave us feeling more confused. Our intuition brings peace. So respond when you feel harmony rather than havoc.

Pay attention to your inner voice, listen well and respond. Take steps to clean up the clutter in your environment. Invite your inner voice to come forward and speak more clearly to you. See what happens, and take note of the answers and solutions that begin to flow from your intuition.

Live the Life You Imagine!

Real Power is the power to be a Conscious Change-maker in your own life. It is the courage to speak up and take a stand, to embrace the discomfort of uncertainty and engage with your intuition. Prosperity emerges; not just financially, but on all levels; prosperity of peace, thought, emotions, healed relationships and trust.

If you are tired of holding back and know that you are capable of experiencing more, there’s no better time to supercharge your prosperity than NOW.

Here are a few ways to start supercharging your prosperity using your intuition:


Know that you deserve it – Self-doubt within yourself creates a roadblock. You were born to experience abundance and prosperity  in every area of your life. Regardless of what your life looks and feels like right now, you are just as valuable and deserving as any other person. Keep in mind that the sub-conscious can’t tell the difference between what is real and imagined. Keep up with positive thinking. Turn the negative ones into positive.


Visualize it – The more that you can imagine your dream with all the senses, the more vivid, inspiring, and energizing it will be for you. It becomes your target.


Breathe – When you stop to breathe deeply, you bring yourself into the present and then the present can tap you into your intuition to guide you.


Connect – With yourself and with others who inspire and support you. Go into the direction that your energy inspires you to go, even if your mind doesn’t understand exactly why yet.

Commit – To being open, to trusting your intuition, to taking action, and to keep going. Whether in your personal life or in your work, abundance and prosperity is there, waiting for you to embrace, accept, and step into it.

Let today be the first step in supercharging your prosperity to create the life you imagine! Here’s to your ongoing prosperity and success!

Superfruit Pomegranate Smoothie

Superfruit pomegranate smoothie has some essential ingredients that not only gets thumbs up in the taste department but provides added nutrients that your body craves. Let’s get whirling my friend!

We would be lost without our Vitamix blender, and it’s a smoothie maker of choice.  Instead of pressing the button on our coffee maker, my morning routine is loading up the blender with all the ingredients needed to start the day off right. If you’re like me, 5 minutes is all you’ve got before rushing out the door.


• Pomegranate: One of the most recognizable superfruits available, the sweet and tangy fruit packs a  punch. The pomegranate juice, fruit, and skin is a source of antioxidants like  polyphenolic flavonoids and anthocyanidins that help to scavenge free radicals. The juice also provides Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, potassium, and fiber when consuming the arils. This smoothie recipe adds juice and arils, so you get benefits from both. Pomegranates are in season from September to February, so eat them now while they are at its peak!

• Pears: Each tasty crisp bite provides high amounts of fiber. In a 100 calorie serving, pears contain almost 6 grams of fiber. Asian pears have the most amount of fiber per fruit, however, are available only during the cooler weather seasons.

• Banana: Not only does it add a naturally sweet and creamy texture, but bananas are also a superfruit loaded with potassium and resistant starch carbohydrates to help with a feeling of fullness.

• Strawberries: These ruby red berries are loaded with Vitamin C, fiber and an excellent source of folic acid. I used frozen strawberries, so you don’t have to worry about the seasonality, and it adds a cold, luscious texture to the smoothie.

• Ginger: Astringent and unforgettable spice, this unique root is a super food. It’s been used historically to aid in nausea, digestive issues, and pain from inflammation. It adds a warming sensation and slightly sour note to the smoothie and boosts the flavor or each sip.

Now that you know why you’re adding in these incredible ingredients it’s now time to give them all a quick whirl! A quick pour and spin, and you’ve got a superfood pomegranate smoothie ready in 5 minutes or less!

Who’s ready for a refreshing glass of pomegranate smoothie?

love, k 🙂
