Aussie, Aussie, Aussie — yogurt, yogurt, yogurt
At first I was just intrigued by Noosa Finest Yoghurt's larger tub-like container, but now I can't get enough. And before you think, "another country-themed yogurt," let me explain. This Australian-credited blend is not as thick as Greek yogurts, but it is richer and creamier than conventional varieties, offering up a smooth texture that is distinctly different and almost dessert-like.
Healthier than most puddings or pie-fillings, it is a protein-packed snack that you can indulge in. It comes in two sizes; 8 ounces if you're on the go or 16 ounces to stock up your refrigerator. You will be wanting more — consider yourself warned. (noosayoghurt.com).
Don't sweat it
Because undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments has made me hyper-aware of what I put in and on my body, I've wanted to find an effective all-natural deodorant.
After trying a number of different formulas and brands, I did find some clear winners in the category, and one that worked even better than my previously preferred formula. Schmidt's Natural Deodorant is a pomade in a jar that you apply to your underarms with your fingers. It may take some getting used to, but it's worthwhile and comes in fragrances such as lavender and sage or cedarwood and juniper. ($9, schmidtsdeodorant.com).
Meet my new BFF: the Boppy Pregnancy Bolster. Yes, moms-to-be can use the bolster as a comfy prop for their neck, knees, belly, lower back, etc. But everyone could benefit from the extra cushion, right? The included TheraPearl pack can be cooled in the freezer or heated in a microwave, which makes this cushion a lifesaver for headaches, cramps, hot flashes, neck or back pain, aches and more.
