I've spent a lot of time trying to simplify my life, and intermittent fasting really helps with that. I've also spent a great deal of time (and energy) looking for nontoxic cleaning products that work. Thankfully, I found Branch Basics.
I can't believe how simple this line of products is--but what I really can't believe is how great they actually work. Go to ginstephens.com/BranchBasics to read more about why I love these products so much, and how I use them (and also how I customize them to make them even more of a pleasure to use).

CLEAN SKINCARE? YES, PLEASE!
I fast clean, and so it's become important for me to clean up other areas of my life. Beautycounter makes it effortless for me to be sure that my makeup and skincare products are safe. For Beautycounter, safety begins with The Never List™, which consists of 1,800+ questionable ingredients that are prohibited from their formulations.
When you shop with me at beautycounter.com/ginstephens, you are helping to support the Intermittent Fasting Stories podcast with every purchase. You can also visit ginstephens.com/beautycounter to read more about why I love Beautycounter.
Meal Delivery Services Changed my life...
These photos show examples of some of the meals we have enjoyed over the years.
If you know me at all, you probably already know that I am CRAZY about meal delivery services. These services are perfect for the busy intermittent faster. Every day, I open the fridge and there are fresh ingredients, just like I would buy at the grocery store, in exactly the right portions for our dinner. I have discovered that I LOVE cooking...what I didn't like was meal planning and shopping for food. I have also discovered how much I love vegetables! It's been a lot of fun trying things I never would have thought to try on my own. I can't even remember what we used to eat, because I am such a fan of meal delivery services and will never go back. (We used to order so much pizza that one of our local delivery services gave us a Poinsettia as a thank-you two Christmases in a row. I'm not even kidding. Now, if you tried to make me order a pizza, I would be mad at you.)
My favorites? Green Chef, Daily Harvest, and Home Chef,
My favorites? Green Chef, Daily Harvest, and Home Chef,
Three or four nights a week, you can count on the fact that we will have Green Chef meals on our dinner table. Green Chef is a certified organic company, which is something we appreciate. Their service has gotten a lot more flexible (which we love), and you can choose three meals each week from a variety of "meal plans" such as plant-powered, Paleo, and keto. Most weeks, we prefer the Balanced Living plan, since we eat #AllTheThings.

I've been a Home Chef customer off and on since 2016. They have plenty of family-friendly options, so it is a great meal kit for busy families who may have picky eaters. Each week, I send a box to my 24-year-old son for him to make for himself. He's learning to cook, and I can feel good about the fact that he's eating real food. #GoodFood #ItIsWhatMomsDo.

Institute For Integrative Nutrition
I completed Health Coach training through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2019, and I loved their focus on bio-individuality. It matches everything I learned in 2017 when researching for my second book, Feast Without Fear. Yes, we are all different when it comes to what foods work well for our individual bodies! If you have ever dreamed of a career helping others meet their health related goals, click on the link, below, for a free curriculum guide. I'm so glad I went through their program.
Lifepro Vibration Plates
This is the vibration plate that I use--I have the Turbo. It is a nice relaxing workout for someone like me, who doesn't want to do a traditional workout. You say lazy, I say efficient! There is also some compelling science supporting the use of these machines, and you can read about it at ginstephens.com/lifepro.

This is the DNA test that I used for both ancestry and health information. After receiving my report from them, I was able to download my raw data and find out even more about myself.
I am amazed at how easy it is to bake bread. This book has actually turned me into a confident baker.
This is the weighted hula hoop that I use. Make sure to select one that is the right size for you. There are size guides on the product listing to help you figure out your correct size.
