A roundup of my current favorite products, links, and things from around the web! Check out the list and find some new things to try for yourself.
I was SO tempted to call this Monthly Favorites: Quarantine Edition, but I decided to try to maintain as much normalcy as possible for all of our sakes. 😉
With everything going on right now, that has been KEY for me. Trying to maintain as much routine and normal day-to-day life as possible given the circumstances.
Despite the major shutdowns around the country/world, March was actually a pretty great month! And I feel very lucky to be able to say that given a lot of people are struggling right now.
Here are a few of the highlights…
- I started a GoFundMe Campaign called #BuffaloStrong in which I use the funds raised to order food from local restaurants and then deliver the food to local healthcare workers. It was my goal to support both industries at the same time and this seemed like the most optimal solution! It’s really taken off and I’ve done over 10 deliveries to local hospitals and local healthcare facilities since starting it. Check out all the details here if you feel like donating or starting one of these campaigns in your city.
- I started a new job!! In addition to the work, I do for my own businesses, I am now the Senior Social Media Manager of a wellness company. I hope to be able to share more details soon. But so far so good and the people I’m working with are awesome.
- I finally had a productive doctors appointment with my endocrinologist and feel a bit more positive about the course of treatment for my issues going forward.
- I started a TikTok (username is @YourHealthyHelper)! It’s really just for fun and I am SO bad at the dances but it really takes me back to my performing days and it feels good to be doing some purely silly/creative. Come follow me if you feel like it. I’m definitely good for a few laughs. 😉
So despite all the chaos in the world right now, there have been some positives in my life and I think if we shift our perspectives we can ALL find some bright spots in tough times. 🙂
Now, let’s get into my Monthly Favorites for March!
Baruka Nuts | Super crunchy nuts that taste like a cross between almonds and peanuts!
Shredded Wheat | Probably the most boring cereal ever but for some reason I LOVE it! The way shredded wheat soaks up milk like little puffy pillows is just SO good.
Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Rice Bowl | Delicious and perfect for a healthy meal in a quick pinch!
Good to Go Keto Bars | Usually not a fan of KETO products but these bars are so tasty. They are made with whole foods and have a soft-baked cookie texture. My favorite flavors are Strawberry Macadamia and Double Chocolate! But they’re all good.
Naturally Clean Eats Bars | Vegan protein bars with no added sugar. I love the Peanut Butter & Greens bar…but they’re all worth trying.
21 Bridges | Crime thriller starring Chadwick Boseman!
JoJo Rabbit | Oscar nominated comedy that takes place during WW2.
All The Bright Places | Chilling movie about mental health…definitely a tear jerker.

The Invisible Man | Suspense thriller starring Elisabeth Moss!
Succession | Super addicting show about family and business.
Some Good News | John Krasinski started a GOOD NEWS network Youtube Channel and it’s amazing.
Chris D’elia Hates on Fitness Influencers | HILARIOUS!!
