Are you looking for a workout program designed for the average person and customizable to your needs? No really it does exist. My FitU is a revolutionary fitness program that acts as a personal trainer, healthy eating mentor, and weight loss coach all in one! Great! What makes it different from all the others? My FitU is designed for the everyday woman or man. Workouts are tailored to fit your needs at your level, whether you are beginning your fitness journey or you enjoy more advanced workouts.
Daniel Meng is the creating force of My FitU. He is one of the most successful fitness coaches and trainer to stars like Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, and more. Ladies, that means he is the man to thank for how well those men wear their jeans…but I digress. Daniel’s experience includes 13 years as a certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor, owner of MUV Fitness Coaching, and 12 years on-road health coach for Kenny Chesney.
Signup took a few minutes and I could tell from the start it wasn’t like any other program I’ve tried. I am a the point in my fitness journey that I want to tone up and lose a few more pounds. My FitU allowed me to customize a plan that focused on toning up with weight loss. Typically programs make you choose: extreme fitness or extreme weight loss, something I really dislike. Not only was I given daily exercises but also a nutritional plan. Although I already eat healthy I always love new ideas and recipes to try. For someone who is just starting to figure out how to eat right this aspect of the program is perfect.
Also when I signed up, I was asked where I would be primarily working out. As a busy mom, I am home more than I can make it to the gym so my exercises are all things I can do at home. Thankfully My FitU keeps it simple, with step by step visual, audio, and written instructions for each exercise. And if I still have a question, members can post questions and Daniel will answer them! Awesome right?! My favorite thing about the My FitU exercises? The ability to swap exercises. When you have chronic pain issues (for me it is my back) certain exercises exacerbate it and I do not have time to be out of commission. Also, sometimes you just don’t like a certain routine and with the swap ability you don’t have to do it anymore.
Bottom Line: I love My FitU! It is the perfect companion to my crazy mom life and 2x a week gym schedule. I can really feel it working (read:sore muscles) and I am starting to see the difference in my arms and abs after only 2 weeks. I have been in a plateau for awhile so to finally get off of it in just a little amount of time feels amazing! Daniel Meng will definitely get your body ready to lounge on the beach no shoes, no shirt, no problems.

As a mom, I am on the go a lot! I stay on the lookout for healthy and convenient foods to meet my nutritional needs while I am conquering my day. Juices and smoothies are one thing I am always looking for. When I got the opportunity to try Sambazon through Moms Meet I was excited. Trying new and green products is a passion of mine and Moms Meet makes it possible! For this review I grabbed the Energy juice blend, Acai Smoothie, and SuperGreens Smoothie.
Who is Sambazon?
Sambazon Juices and Smoothies are a super healthy and tasty addition to your everyday routine! Made with Superfoodstm of the Amazon, each product is packed with antioxidants and omega 3-6-9s. In plain English, these drinks are full of a lot of good stuff that will keep any mom (or dad) going through all the craziness that life brings. They are also both Organic and Fair Trade certified, supporting two million acres of the Amazon Rainforest and over 10,000 family farmers! Awesome right?!
Being an Earth lover, the mission and history of Sambazon makes my inner green child very happy. Add in that their products are NONGMO and you have one lifelong customer. It wasn’t just mommy who indulged in these yummy drinks, my kids loved them too! Their favorite was the SuperGreens Smoothie, a blend including the famous kale. I know this because I only had about 4 sips of it before they took it and ran. If you are trying to sneak in more veggies (like kale) and/or fruits for the kids or yourself, Sambazon will do the job. Each drink had a unique flavor that was unlike any other brand I have tried before. The smoothie blends have a thicker consistency with the occasional fruit bit you would expect to find in a homemade smoothie. I like that it tastes like it was freshly made just for me. Whether I was sitting down to write, assisting at my kid’s school, or running errands these Sambazon drinks were there to keep me energized, feeling full, and healthy!
Sambazon Energy is just what I need to power through my day. Especially that afternoon drowsy feeling!
Or Acai superfood smoothie when I was a chaperone to a moonbounce place for my daughter’s class. I needed to refuel and with all those snotty noses a big ol’ dose of healthy!
Just The Facts
- Made with the finest organic Amazon Superfoodstm on the planet such as Acai’, Acerola, and Yerba Mate.
- Juices and Smoothies are available in 10 different flavors, and packed with antioxidants and healthy omega 3-6-9s

Since finishing my original three, I have gone back and gotten more. I grab Sambazon when I leave the house in the morning and my kids request them for their lunches. If you are looking for healthy, tasty, organic, and easy I know you will love Sambazon Juice and Smoothie Blends as much as we do!

Last summer my eyes were opened to the reality that not all sunscreens are created equal. Being a pale faced, porcelain red head, the sun and I are not on good terms. I wear sunscreen to protect myself from the sun and prevent cancer, like most normal people. But what I found out was certain ingredients, found in most sunscreens, actually increase the likelihood of getting skin cancer. Seriously?! Once I snapped out of my shock I started doing some research into natural sun screen and what exactly I should be shopping for.
Let me save you some time and tell you about this amazing brand of organic, natural sunscreen: Goddess Garden. I will get to all the health benefits in a minute. First I have to tell you it works great! I am very, VERY picky about my sunscreen and for good reason. When you burn easily, you become an expert in what saves your skin and what fails. When I was sent the new adult and child continuous spray sunscreen I was excited to try it but nervous too. Sunscreen is one of those products that if it doesn’t work the results are bad. I knew the track record of the company is an awesome one so that made me feel a lot better. My daughter is like me, super pale and prone to burns. Before trying it on her, I tested out the sunscreen first. When I came back from my run burn free I used it on her for field day at school. We both are happy to tell you, we are burn free and Goddess Garden is fair skinned approved! Bonus: the continuous spray makes it quick and easy to apply sunscreen to your active kiddos who refuse to sit still longer than a second, like my boy!
Now for the health benefits.
Goddess Garden Sunscreens are water resistant, non-greasy, absorbs quickly, and contains the highest percentage of organic ingredients available in a sunscreen- over 92 percent! Their products are made of natural occurring minerals Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide that act as a physical block to the sun rays. This causes the rays to bounce off and not be absorbed into the skin. If you have sensitive skin like me, the Goddess Garden sunscreen doesn’t irritate it but helps to hydrate my skin. Customers like myself love Goddess Garden sunscreen and here are some reasons why:
• Pure protection without chemicals
• 92% Certified Organic ingredients
• Sheer & non-whitening minerals
• Non-greasy for face & body
• Sun protection effective immediately
You don’t just have to take my word for it. Goddess Garden Sunscreen has received Best Sunscreen Awards from Natural Solutions Magazine, Natural Foods Merchandiser, and Delicious Living magazines. The Environmental Working Group reviewed Goddess Garden’s Everyday Natural Sunscreen, Kid’s Natural Sunscreen, Baby Natural Sunscreen, and Facial Natural Sunscreen. All received a 1-2 rating, meaning they were recommended as a safe sunscreen to use!
We are ready for the pools to open this weekend!
Goddess Garden is giving one (1) Teachable Mommy reader a free bottle of their organic sunscreen!
Winner can choose between the adult, child, or baby formula for their prize. Giveaway is open to US and Canada residents.

A few months ago I stumbled upon an article about the hidden dangers of fluoride. I was shocked and I remember thinking isn’t this the stuff most dentists tout as being a great thing? So I added finding a “healthy” toothpaste to my list. I wasn’t even sure such a thing existed because I never thought to look for it. I found several natural brands, some still contain fluoride (always read your labels!), and the one I tried it tasted like chalk. The husband uses mouthwash and finding one without harsh chemicals was next to impossible. My children also needed a safe toothpaste.
Then I found the Mouth Doctor.
OraMD by Trusted Health Products is a 100% natural toothpaste, mouthwash, and breath freshener all in one! It is a liquid oral hygiene product made up of only 3 ingredients, all 100% natural oils. That means no fluoride, alcohol, silica, GMOs, and no other harsh chemicals that are found in toothpaste. Can I get a cheer? When we first started using it we thought wow this stuff is great but a little strong. But I read that is perfectly normal in the first several uses. That feeling went away and now when I use it I don’t feel overpowered by the product. My mouth feels clean like, fresh from the dentist but without the sore gums clean. OraMD is not only in my bathroom but my purse too so I can refresh my breath during the day. The whole family enjoys using it and the novelty of only needing 2 drops (yes that is all you need!) has yet to wear off on the kids.
- 100% Pure Peppermint, Spearmint, and Almond Oils
- Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Inflammatory properties
- Ingredients that kill harmful bacteria that lead to gum disease and other oral health problems. This helps to create and maintain a clean, healthy environment in your mouth.
- Safe for ages 3 & up (with no allergies to peppermint, spearmint, or nuts)
- No GMO’s
- Inter-dental access (gets between teeth and reaches hard to clean areas)
- Safe for braces, veneers, bonds, crowns, fillings, and dentures.
Not only is OraMD good for your body but it is good for the environment and your wallet too! OraMD is vegan, not tested on animals, and the convenient size means I can carry it in my purse, gym bag, or diaper bag! And since it functions as a toothpaste, mouthwash, and breath mint you won’t need to spend extra money buying three different products. One bottle can last a month; that’s a savings I can live with.
