These are a few of my favorite things.....(did you sing it in your head?) If you're anything like me, you are kind of nosy. You like to see products other people are using and what's helping them.
In this post, I'm going to share some of the things I have been using to rehab my knee, a few of my favorite things from Amazon AND a few apps I love for getting cash back. (I LOVE a good deal and cash back). I was a kid who scoured garage sales for good deals at the time when you clipped the ads out of the pennysaver and then drove around town on the weekends.
*note* a few of these are affiliate links which means I get a small kickback if you order and some are not. Some of them include a discount for you as a first time customer!

I have been using these Venga CBD products off/on for months. I have also tried several other products, but they don't seem to work as well for me. I take the CBD capsule every day and use the rub for sore muscles.
Does it change my world? Of course not, but like with any supplement, I can tell when I don't take it and that it makes a difference in how stiff/sore I feel.
Fringe Red Light Therapy (I own the wrap)
I am REALLY excited about this product. As I have done all the required things for my knee (strengthening, stretching, foam rolling, walking, physical therapy, etc) it still just wasn't ALL the way better.
So I started investigating red light therapy and please don't ask me all the science (you can watch these videos HERE) I wanted to give it a try.
I have felt a big change in the movement of my knee from reduced inflammation. Jury is still out on the long term effects, but so far it's a HUGE thumbs up. I have the red light panel.
Fun fact - it's safe for dogs and my dog Toula is absolutely in love with it. Anytime I get it out, she runs up and gets ready for it.
25% off for new customers
HANDS down my favorite socks. I got rid of ALL of my socks and replaced them with Bombas. They also have incredible customer service and 100% guarantee.
I owned several pairs for almost 3 years before they showed any sign of wear. And they are SO comfortable.
Bare Home Bedding and Sheets
A Minnesota based company - amazingly soft and affordable bedding and sheets. I have been so impressed by these products and have ordered many times.
HydraCup Stainless Steel Shaker Bottle
I was looking for a replacement for my plastic shaker bottles and something more durable.
These cups fit the bill and I am loving them.
I use this protein powder in all my smoothies and love it. It is a plant based protein (not whey) because a lot of dairy upsets my stomach. I don't recommend it if you're trying to drink protein by itself, but I love it in a smoothie.
Liquid IV Electrolytes
Many of us are dehydrated but not from lack of water, but from the balance of electrolytes. Liquid IV helps me stay hydrated but also simply helps me drink more water. And I put it in my shaker cup!
