*Disclaimer: This product was received for free, but all opinions are my own! When I was asked to try BODYARMOR SuperDrink™, I was intermediately excited. I, like a lot of others, tend to go back and forth when it comes to “healthy living” phases, and I’m currently in the “let’s try this again” segment of […]

It’s time to destroy those stereotypes and bring awareness to how awesome this state is. My hope is that […]
According to Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), 1 in 13 children has food allergies. These allergies can range from peanuts to dairy, and can cause mild to severe reactions.
