New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
A New One-Stop Source For Safe, Effective Personal Care Products
If you heard my podcast interview with Katie Wells, AKA “The Wellness Mama,” then you know that she’s a total wizard when it comes to everything from making your own healthy toothpaste, to creating toxin-free sunscreens in your kitchen, to using essential oils to enhance everything from oral health to immunity, to even ensuring you’re not messing up yours or your kids' hormones with personal care products like shampoos and conditioners.
Problem is, it can take hours and hours of TIME to actually hunt down and buy all the ingredients and make this stuff yourself at home. Enter Katie’s new company: Wellnesse. After spending more than a decade perfecting formulas in her kitchen, she created products that are human safe, planet safe, and work better than conventional alternatives, and now you can just buy them directly from her new Wellnesse website.
All of her ingredients are rated the cleanest possible rating by the Environmental Working Group and are crafted formulas that are better than what’s already on shelves, but without toxins, parabens, sulfates, and more. She’s also committed to building a sustainable supply chain that supports women and minority-owned businesses. Her shampoo, conditioner, and whitening toothpaste are an amazing place to start.

Beef & Blueberries For A Potent Stem Cell Boosting 1-2 Combo
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of good, quality meat, and I’m constantly on the hunt (pun intended) for proprietors of meat that offer grass-fed, grass-finished organic carnivorous tastiness that my readers and listeners can easily order to their own house.
The other night, I got my hands on some filet mignon cuts from a new company I discovered called “Piedmontese Beef.” The Piedmontese breed of cattle originated in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy, where it was first discovered over 100 years ago among the region’s robust history of fine wines and rich cuisines. Prized for its noticeably heavy musculature, the Piedmontese breed’s unique genetic makeup means these cattle naturally develop a significantly greater muscle mass compared to conventional cattle. At the same time, muscle fibers remain tender without the need for excess marbling. The result? Consistently superior beef that’s both lean and tender.
Certified Piedmontese is a healthier beef option that doesn’t sacrifice flavor or tenderness. The cattle, which are raised responsibly and carefully on family ranches across the Midwest, are healthier, too. They’re never given antibiotics, steroids, or hormones. They raise the rare Piedmontese breed through a ranch-to-fork approach that ensures traceability, environmental sustainability, humane animal handling, and responsible resource management at every step. Countless well-known chefs from across the country rave about the exceptional quality and flavor profile of this Certified Piedmontese beef.
So naturally, I had to try this stuff! I sous vide these Piedmontese filets for an hour, then finished them off with a 2-minute sear per side, then 30-second sear on each edge. My marinade was unique: olive oil, coarse salt, black pepper, rosemary, thyme, and the secret ingredient…blueberries! Why blueberries? Turns out an impressive study I found shows that combining a nutrient found in beef (carnosine) with blueberries can send your energy levels skyrocketing. It does this by supercharging your stem cells more than 80%! Wow! The added bonus is that the sweet tartness of the blueberries paired amazingly with the rich flavor of the Piedmontese beef cuts.

Did you know that tap water in the USA can compromise you and your family's health?
Three out of 4 homes in the US have tap water containing contaminants that exceed safe water limits. According to an article in National Geographic Magazine, “Depending on the source of contamination and the exposure, health effects include neurological problems and developmental disabilities in children (lead), interference with hormones (perchlorates), and increased risk of cancers of the skin, bladder, and kidney (arsenic).”
AquaTru uses Ultra Reverse Osmosis® Technology, the gold standard in water purification technology to filter out 82 toxic chemicals including…
- Chromium 6
- Chlorine and Chloramine
- Pesticides and Fertilizers
- PFOA and PFOS
…and does this all with no plumbing or installation required. AquaTru is the first and only countertop reverse osmosis water purifier that is certified to create bottled-quality water from your tap.
