Bought it... now what?

I try to be healthy.

I read up on things, take people's thoughts & opinions into consideration, I try to stay on top of the latest health finds.

& then I go to Amazon & shop away.

Isn't Amazon the best thing ever.  The same place I can buy SD cards for my camera is also the same place I can buy health foods that I want to make me feel like 100 bucks.

So I have recently bought some Organic Matcha


Look at all the awesome things it says it can do...
All day energy?  Increase focus?  Yes... let me just throw all this stuff down my throat...

But I read you are only supposed to use 1/4 tsp to start out... & it apparently tastes like grass.  Which it sorta looks like too.

& now I'm not sure how to use it.  It says for Lattes, but I don't think I want a grass-latte... & smoothies, which I forget to toss in my smoothies because I'm already tossing in so many other things like protein powder, flax seed, chia seeds, a dash of hope for a healthy body... you know, the normal smoothie things.  & then it also says baking.  Baking?  What green thing do I want to bake today...

& then I also bought some Spirulina Manna


I have a friend who is all things healthy & all things beautiful & I want to be her...

she had this on her Instagram & bragging how amazing it is & all the things it does...

But now, I'm like - what do I do with THIS?

its also a powder.  Do I throw this is in my smoothies too? 

& is it OK to throw these things in together?  Grass & Manna...

I sound so biblical in my health...

Not finished yet... I also just bought some Rhodiola Rosea

I can thank Dr. Oz for this one.

They were talking about people who suffer from Chronic Fatigue & how this also gives energy & helps focus...

SOLD - where do I get it?  Amazon of course - duh...

This one is headed to me this week.  This one at least if a capsule so I can give this a try with dinner... not as confusing what to do with it...

So with this AND the Matcha - I should be like Superman & focusing so well, I'll be able to read people's minds.  Can Superman do that?  Well, if he can't - I may be able to.

I'm also hoping it gives me energy to not want to fall asleep driving my car.

Goal in life... I have them

Anyone try any of these things?  Give me some hints on what to do with them...


  1. Matcha is great for green tea latte. This recipe is great. One of my favorites.

    1. Already pinned it & planning on trying it tonight! :)

  2. never heard of any of these things, lol. i recently bought chia seeds and add them to my smoothies (for energy and tons of good stuff) and i take b12 and that is without a doubt the winner in all things in my book.

  3. 1) I just realized I'm not following you on Twitter so I remedied that!
    2) Reading this post was like reading a foreign language LOL I have no idea what any of these things are - I wish I could help! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the products though :0)

    1. Once I know what I'm dealing with - I'll have to do a recap post... & convert everyone to weird health products :)

  4. I wish I had tried them and could offer you hints, but I never have. It will be interesting to hear how you decide to incorporate them into your menu's:) Good luck!!!

  5. I haven't tried any of them, you will have to post about it once you have tried them all for awhile. I do eat a lot of chia seeds. Good luck finding ways to eat your new finds!

  6. Is it bad I've never heard of any of that?...probably means something I'm just not sure what lol I'll be looking forward to seein if they help at all!

    1. It looks like I'm the only weird one who owns these things :)

  7. I like to add Spirulina to green smoothies. I don't think it alters the taste too much. Rhodiola Rosea? Never heard of it! LOL

  8. I've never heard of any of those so I'm looking forward to your Superman post. :) I do add chia seeds and ground flax meal to my morning Visalus shakes so adding something else probably wouldn't hurt ... as long as it doesn't cancel something out! :)

    1. I've never heard of Visalus.... so much out there to learn about!!!
