Over the past five years, I’ve coached hundreds of women through detox, weight loss, hormone challenges, pre-diabetes and more. I’ve been blessed by the AMAZING women that have entered my life! Thank you for allowing me to share my passion with you. I’m looking forward to future years and more inspiring clients, fun times and creative solutions for all of you.
For well over a decade, I’ve been on my own personal journey to detoxify, reverse insulin resistance, lose the baby weight, increase my energy and balance my hormones. It has been quite the adventure – not always easy but I’ve stayed the course.
Smoothies were my very first step in taking back my health.
Simple, easy, fast, nutritious & delicious.
I’ve made thousands of smoothies and tried a TON of different smoothie protein powders, but none that I could put my reputation on the line by endorsing and sharing with my clients. (In a perfect world, we would not need protein powders, superfoods powders, veggie powders, etc. but I don’t live in a perfect world and most of my clients don’t either.)
One year ago, I met Robyn Openshaw and learned about her GSGLife product line. I was in awe of it’s pureness and her philosophy to keep things clean and simple. Robyn Openshaw is the creator of the the well-known blog Green Smoothie Girl and when she could not find products that met her high standards in the protein world, she decided to create her own. That’s one determined mamma!
Better Health by Heather is proud to partner with GSGLife. It has been a beautiful partnership for which I am most grateful and it has allowed many of my clients (and friends and family) to use a product line that does not muck up their health challenges (while still allowing for awesome tasting plant based smoothies with no grittiness). I feel like I’ve won the smoothie lottery after many, many years!
GSGLife’s products are sooooo clean – just what my clients, friends and family need.
They are 100% organic, raw, vegan, non-GMO and contain NO dairy, soy, gluten, sugar or grains. No isolates, fillers, preservatives nor chemicals. No super long list of ingredients and words that you can’t pronounce. No “too much of a good thing.” 100% plant based goodness. And we should all be working to increase the plants in our life! (If you’re not familiar with the China Study, check it out for a good read on why you want more plants in your life.)
The GSGLife unflavored protein powder contains organic pea protein, organic hemp seed protein, and citrus pectin. That’s it. Nothing else. Three ingredients and it tastes greats, blends beautifully, and leaves no gritty aftertaste or texture on the tongue. Your smoothie can be fully customized for your bio-individual needs (without a lot of added ingredients to clutter things up)!
GSGLife is happy to fully disclose their flavorings in their products too! (Can tell you I’ve called a few companies where no one will tell me what their “natural flavorings” are – BIG RED FLAG for me.) They use organic vanilla beans, organic cocoa beans, and organic berries. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
You get 15-17 grams of pure plant based goodness in every serving.
And you NEVER get the inulin (no it’s not good for everyone), endocrine disrupting soy, high oleic sunflower oil, erythritol, rice and rice dextrins (risk of heavy metal contamination), silica, isolates of all types, soy lecithin, barley malt, and xanthum gum – all things that I personally skip for health reasons!
I encourage you to learn to read labels while you are out shopping for protein powders, superfoods, and other boosters to add into your smoothies. You may be surprised by what’s hiding out.
It’s taken me a full year to write this blog post because I wanted to see for myself how these products were received by my clients, family and friends – and what effect they had on my personal health challenges. It’s been nothing but goodness and TONS of positive feedback!
My busy mom clients hire me for my training and expertise, guidance and suggestions. I’m most grateful for their trust, enthusiasm and willingness to try new things that lead us all to cleaner living, sharper minds and happier hearts.
At the heart of GSGLife is the motto “Wellness. Purpose. Passion.” which is right in line with what I do at Better Health by Heather every day.
