Frequently Asked Questions


What are your favorite probiotics? Silverfern Brand and The Coconut Cult coconut yogurt

 Which collagen peptides do you take? For my plain, unflavored collagen peptides, I use Further Food collagen peptides! I mix them into smoothies, tea or coffee everyday to help my hair grow! Use my code "HEALTHMASON" for money off your order. 

 What protein powder do you use? I have tested a LOT of protein powders, but my all time favorite is the Tone It Up Perfect Fit protein powder. It is easy on my stomach.

DECEMBER 2017 UPDATE: I have been enjoying Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Peptides in my smoothies. Get the benefits of collagen with a delicious vanilla flavor. 

 Which are your favorite Sun Potion products? I love Sun Potion, so much that I have written up an entire post about my favorite products HERE.

What are your kitchen must-have appliances, tools and gadgets (shop below)? Growing your kitchen can be a slow process, but I recommend spending the money on appliances that will last.

My Vitamix has absolutely changed my life. I use it every single day. They are 100% worthwhile investments if you want to make creamy smoothies, delicious soups, perfect salad dressings, homemade nut butters and SO much more. I was also gifted a Vitamix from MindBodyGreen at Revitalize.

I am also a big fan of my food processor, which I use second to my blender. I use the food processor to make my nut balls, dessert crumble toppings, oat flour and more. I love the Cuisinart.

I'm in love with my Staub tea kettle. As a big evening tea-drinker, I use this thing almost everyday. This one is rather expensive, but having one on hand is great.  

Along the lines of cast iron, we love our Staub cocotte, Le Creuset braiser and Lodge skillet. Cast iron can last a lifetime if you take care of it properly! 

I am a BIG coffee drinker, but hate making a big pot if I am the only one drinking it in the morning. Yale and I got our Nespresso last year for Cyber Monday and we are in love! I also love that fact that Nespresso has a pod recycling program, so I don't feel bad going through as many pods as I do. Ours was from Amazon and saved us a little money by waiting for Cyber Monday (pro tip).


Natural Beauty-Related:

What are your go-to natural makeup products?  I have a post discussing my favorite natural beauty products HERE, HERE, and HERE!  I also love Cap Beauty and Credo Beauty.

 What is your go-to natural deodorant? LaVanille Sport, AER Deodorant (all time favorite) and Schmidts Sensitive Skin Deodorant 

Where are your reusable makeup-remover wipes from? Etsy! I have a bunch and just wash them after each use. 

Clothing and Jewelry-Related:

Where is your white robe from? Nordstrom! It’s the greatest lightweight robe EVER!

Where is your blue robe from? It's by Barefoot Dreams. It's the best ever. I have the slate blue color in a size 2 (although they run large). 

 Where is your pearl necklace from? Consider the Wldflwrs. My style necklace is sold out but I love everything they do. 

Where are your jean shorts from? My favorite shorts are my Levi's 501 cutoff jean shorts.

Which Apple Watch do you have? Apple Watch Series 2 33mm Case

What are your bracelets? I wear a Cartier Love bangle which was a graduation present from my parents, and a silver bangle which Yale gave me way back in 2009.
