Beautycounter Gift with Purchase – only through January 31!
Not only am I offering you a major gift with purchase from my personal stash, but you can double up on extra offers with Beautycounter’s end-of-January promo! Don’t miss this!
You’ve probably heard about safer skincare brand Beautycounter and the two products with a cult following – the Purifying Charcoal Mask and the Charcoal Cleansing Bar.
The Purifying Charcoal Mask uses salicylic acid to cleanse pores without scrubbing or squeezing. At the same time, charcoal detoxifies, ginger soothes, and lactic acid helps the skin retain moisture!
The Charcoal Cleansing Bar cleanses without drying and soothes with green tea extract and witch hazel.
These products have a cult following for good reason – they are some of the best products on the market. They’re safer and free of known irritants and hormone disruptors. And they work!
They get my podcast partner Liz Wolfe’s stamp of approval – and she’s been helping people with their skin for years.
And this week only, I’m giving you the Charcoal Cleansing Bar – a $24 value! – for FREE with your purchase of $55 or more (before tax & shipping)!
All the details about your FREE gift with Purchase here >
PS – Join Liz and I for a Charcoal Mask Demo LIVE on Facebook at 10 AM PST on Thursday, January 26th! Replay available here!

21DSD Recipe Roundup | Kale Pesto Chicken Soup from Grazed & Enthused
One pot. Loads of mineral-rich leafy greens and herbs. Satiating protein and fat. Gut-healing bone broth. This is one of those recipes that packs in so much of the good stuff, you won’t miss the dairy or nuts found in traditional pesto dishes. It’s also AIP-friendly if you omit the ground cumin and black pepper, which I’ve added to the pesto and soup base for an increased depth of flavor to replace some of the earthiness of missing pine nuts.
Tender zucchini blended into enzyme-rich broth results in a creamy, almost cheesy base. From there you simply stir in the pre-cooked chicken, leafy greens and quick pesto sauce for a flavor bomb of a soup that will make you the envy of all within scent-shot of your lunch. Enjoy!

Highlights from Instagram
Just in case you *happen* to stumble across something I post, or a caption I write, or a comment or reply I give and somehow think to yourself any of these or a similar thought, let me help you out… . Don’t bother. . Don’t bother taking the time to tell me what you think or how you feel about what I am doing that displeases you. Or telling me how I should be or behave or conduct myself. I am an adult who will conduct myself as I see fit, not according to your rules because you decided to tap that follow button. Or even if you bought a book of mine. . I’m here and happy to support those of you who want it, but I am certainly not here as puppet who will do as you please or who you can command to do things a certain way because you feel entitled in some way to dictate my behavior. . Truly, what you enjoy, like, want to support is none of my business. What I like, share, and want to support is my business and what I will post about. . My IG feed isn’t a popularity contest attempt, nor a “like me” attempt. It’s my place to share whatever I want to share, that often I *think* you may also enjoy. When I say “you” in this case, I mean those of you who *get me* and are my people. . If I am not for you, I am okay with it. And you can be okay with it, too. Even if you have a book of mine or like my recipes but you somehow don’t jive with my personality. IT IS OKAY. . You do you. I’ll do me. And we can all carry on enjoying social media as civil humans. . Oh, and if you’re someone who feels the need to tell someone that you’re unfollowing them when you don’t like what they post or are offended, know that we are always wishing you good riddance and aren’t sad to see you go. #byefelicia #youdoyou #iamnotforeveryone #dianeUNscripted #rebel #fourtendencies #rebeltendency
