In honor of the winter solstice on 12/21 I am giving away pairs of socks from Toe Talk! This new line of workout socks have mantras embroidered on them to keep you focused and inspired. With grippy bottoms they are ideal to wear during Pilates and barre classes. I tend to wear them during warm up and savasana in yoga classes as well.
To enter for a free pair of Toe Talk socks please like and comment on this post sharing what the winter solstice means to you!

I recently had the opportunity to sample products from Mrs Patel’s line for nursing mamas. All the products are based on Ayurveda philosophies and help to boost your milk supply (as well as tasting good). I am still nursing my 17 month old a minimum of 2x/day. I haven’t noticed a drop in my milk supply, but was still curious to try these products because I do follow an Ayurvedic and holistic diet.
More about the products: Mrs. Patel’s offers three delicious products: Fenugreek Bars, Milk Water Tea and Munch Crunch. Based on the tenets of Ayurveda, these ingredients have been used by nursing mothers in India for thousands of years. The products are ideal for mothers who have recently given birth and those experiencing difficulties with their milk supply.
I made the tea in my french press each morning and added just a splash of unsweetened almond milk to it. The bars (I had the chocolate ones) make for a great mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. The Munch Crunch was the perfect addition to my plain whole fat greek yogurt or steel cut oats. I am going to be purchasing more of each item for myself, as well as their gift packages for friends when they are expecting their own babies.
