A few of my favorite things for the month of January.

January Favorites

1. I can't get enough of this vegan Turmeric Milk from McKel over at Nutrition Stripped. Six simple ingredients combine for a soothing, anti-inflammatory mug of goodness. I've been sipping on this at night to crowd out sweet cravings during the barre3 Challenge.

2. Always looking for lunch ideas, A Week's Worth of Healthy Lunches by the Natural Nurturer's Tae Butler, offers some great inspiration. I love the lunch guidelines she provides, too.

3. I am a member of the best bookclub. We read one book per month and at the end of the year vote on our favorite. Our pick for 2014? All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. A Constellation of Vital Phenomenon by Deckle Edge came in a very close second. Both are fantastic, so if you're looking for a good read grab a copy, snuggle up with some Turmeric Milk, and get reading!

4. Ever wonder about the ingredients in your favorite beauty products? Search EWG's Skindeep Database to learn about ingredients and associated toxicity levels. The database contains over 70,000 health and beauty products and it's growing every day. Even better? They now have have a free app called Skin Deep, so you can search on the go. I use the risk rating system in the Skin Deep app before purchasing products for my daughter.
