Hi there!

New to iHerb? Use coupon code TEP756 for up to $10.00 off your first order.


I'm in my early 30s, but I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at 12 years old so I've been struggling with related issues for a very long time. Conventional medicine never helped very much, but when I discovered natural medicine and therapeutic foods in 2004, I slowly began to recover and find relief from the endless migraines, chronic pain, hormone imbalances, and mood swings. I'm still on this journey to better health, but I love sharing my experiences with others along the way. I'd love if you used my referral code TEP756 to place an order -- you will get $5 or $10 off your order, and it will help me try more products too. ;)

Strangely addictive

Posted on Jan 15, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Not super sweet or salty, but mildly flavored somewhere in the middle, with a chewy/crunchy bite. I couldn't stop at just one handful. Very tasty little snack!

great black cherry concentrate for mineral water "sodas"

Posted on Oct 18, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I love to add this concentrate to mineral water. I drop a tablespoon into a tall glass of sparkling mineral water, add a few drops of NuNaturals vanilla stevia, and a wedge of lime -- so refreshing and delicious! It also seems to help with my inflammation if I drink it regularly. I have chronic pain issues and don't drink soda anymore, so I love having a sweet soda-like beverage that has nutritional benefits.

so versatile, so fresh!

I have tried several different brands of coconut oil but I've found this is the most delicious and fresh-tasting I've had, probably because Nutiva is local to iHerb. I highly recommend it to all my friends for eating, cooking, adding to drinks, or for using on skin. I recently mixed it into crushed oatmeal for a wonderful, moisturizing scrub, and eliminated dry patches on my face. Another favorite use? I coat a hot waffle iron with this coconut oil using a silicone basting brush to keep sweet waffle recipes from sticking. It works great, never leaves residue, and never burns!

Really impressed with this stuff.

I love coffee but my body doesn't really appreciate caffeine's after-effects. Jitters, anxiety, edginess, sweating... not to mention the harshness of its acidity on my stomach. I have always been sensitive, so as much as I love it, I can't drink coffee on a daily basis. I've tried some other substitutes including decaf and Teeccino, but they weren't very satisfying to me. Teeccino is pretty decent in the French press, but not something I crave every day like coffee. Dandy Blend is actually quite tasty though! I enjoy stirring it in to frothed milk to make a delicious instant latte. It's nice that it is a powder and therefore easily prepared, too.

Really like this!

Great texture, natural neutral color on me, and smells/tastes nice--can't ask for much more than that. I also buy Burt's Bees lip shimmer but this is a great alternative (and is less expensive too!) Highly recommend if you like a sheer lip color with natural ingredients.

Great little scoop!

Especially great for laundry because it sticks on the side of the washer, but tempted to get one for the kitchen as well. The strong magnets really hold on nicely, too. It's simple and easy to use, and does what it's supposed to do!

Waste not, want not

Posted on Jan 10, 2013

I used to dread making anything that called for buttermilk. Don't get me wrong, I love the flavor that real buttermilk imparts (I prefer it to the substitutions with lemon juice or vinegar) but I always felt wasteful when the remainder of the carton didn't get used before spoiling. Saves a TON of money! Now I keep this on hand at all times -- I actually store it in a Weck jar in the fridge -- and I am able to whip up fresh buttermilk whenever I want without any excess left. Love it and HIGHLY recommend to people who love to bake.

I had no idea prunes could be delicious...

Posted on Jan 28, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

...but they are actually pretty great! The texture is so perfect (you don't need to gnaw on these) and they taste so fresh. They are simple but so good. I hoard them like little treats.

Don't mind the passive-aggressive brand name

Posted on Jan 28, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

These are great baking cups. I have a favorite bran muffin recipe that sticks aggressively to normal baking cups, but with these cups, the muffins never stick! I have also used Reynolds Foil or StayBrite cups from the grocery store but they are pricey (about 2-3x the price of these) and I felt wasteful using the foil and paper hybrid cups. With these you get a clean & natural look and excellent performance, which suits me just fine.

I like this best for biscuits!

Posted on Jan 28, 2013

Purchased at iHerb

I have a preferred pancake & waffle recipe that I make from scratch, but I like having this mix on hand for making quick breads like biscuits, crumb cake, and shortbread. Much better than Bisquick because of the whole grain content, and because Hodgson Mill doesn't use hydrogenated oils. Like another reviewer said, this mix doesn't taste too "wheaty" but does have a touch of pleasing whole-grain heartiness you can taste. I especially loved making these as a drop biscuit and adding some sharp cheddar, chives and garlic salt -- instant Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits knockoff. :)

pretty good performance, and tastes great.

The pluses: good flavor, easy dissolving, helped me get to sleep. The negative: I don't think this helps me sleep as much as other formulas, specifically liquid formulas. I've had better success with liposomal liquid formulas... they knock me right out, even at lower doses than 2.5 mg.

Works pretty well for tablets.

Posted on Apr 12, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

Magnesium + calcium is one of the key supplements I take to help me get restful, restorative sleep. I have fibromyalgia so I can feel when I haven't taken it -- I wake up more stiff, less rested, more tired. I do find that these aren't quite as effective as taking the liquid, but I keep them up at my bedside table for those nights when I know I haven't had a chance to take the liquid form. (It's also much cheaper to take this tablet form vs. the liquid, so it's not that big of a deal.)
