You Need These Top 10 Finds from #ShiftCon

The following post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

In December, I went to my first blogging conference. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how I was going to navigate it. Really, I was scared of the commitment and whether I was going to take this blogging thing seriously. I volunteered for Shiftcon early on 2016 to make sure I couldn’t find a reason not to go.

Top 10 Finds from Shiftcon

ShiftCon is an eco-wellness influencer conference focusing on food, wellness, health, sustainability, and platform growth. If you didn’t know, I started blogging because I was a Beachbody rep. Now, several years later, I’m no longer a rep, but I’m still blogging. So I thought ShiftCon would be a great fit for me.
I’ll go over all of the reasons why I loved ShiftCon tomorrow, but today, I’m going to tell you about all of the wonderful goodies I received as an attendee.

10. Chili Lime Cherries by Stoneridge Orchards

Top 10 Finds at ShiftCon | AprilNoelle.com A deliciously sweet, tart and spicy snack, the best things in life. These no fat, all-natural Montmorency Cherries are seasons with Tajin, which is just divine to suit a variety of taste buds.

9. Hemp Heart Bites by Manitoba Harvest

I’ll be honest, I was skeptical. The squares looked dry. But once I tasted them, I had to double check the serving size to make sure I didn’t eat the whole bag in one sitting. With 10 grams of Omega 3&6 and 10 grams of protein per serving, These satisfy my sweet tooth AND my daily protein requirement.

8. Goddess Garden Sunscreen Stick

At #ShiftCon we learned so much about the benefits of utilizing sunscreen, including how increasing the SPF doesn’t necessarily mean better for you. The added protection (and often the white residue) is because of unnecessary and unnatural additives. That’s not what I want, especially since I live in a state where the sun shines most of the time.

7. Monkfruit Sweetener by Lakanto

The sweetener wars are intense, but I have found one that tops all others. Monkfruit Sweetener is a little sweeter than sugar, but has ZERO additives, ZERO Glycemic value, ZERO aftertaste and is a 1:1 sugar replacement. Use in place of sugar everywhere without spiking your insulin.

6. Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder

Molly’s mom, the owner of Molly’s Suds, and I had a great conversation which quickly drifted into fabric softener. I stopped using fabric softener last year and it was a great decision for my clothes! They are no longer dingy and I use a lot less bleach. Most store-bought fabric softeners actually coat your clothes in a very thin layer of plastic, which makes them harder to wash and repellent to bleach. Once I had washed my clothes a few times, there was a noticeable difference in the softness and the amount of bleach that I used. After learning so much, I have to say, the Laundry Powder works just as well as my other detergent, without harsh chemicals and all-natural ingredients.

5. Coffee Cacao Power Snacks by Navitas

Need an afternoon pick-me-up and a snack? This superfood combination gives you a great bang for your caloric buck. Try it out and see for yourself.

4. Beauty Counter Products

Quality all-natural bath and body products kinda speak for themselves. Great products, great results.

3. Relax & Restore Whole Food Magnesium by Garden of Life

I have a personal issue with my gastro intestinal tract. It’s completely inconsistent, but this product has helped me maintain regularity and helps me to rest at night. Getting this two for one package is really a delight.

2. Collagen Peptides by Vital Proteins

Can I say amazing? Have you ever considered being able to add protein to any drink without thinking about it being hot or cold, chocolatey or fruit, sweet or savory? That’s what these protein peptides do for you. You can drop a scoop full of flavorless crystals into any drink and hit your protein target without the requirement to “drink a shake”. Love it!

1. MegaFood Vitamins

Not one just one vitamin, everyone I tried so far is amazing and feels good in my tummy. I wrote more about it last week here.
There are truly SO many more great goodies that we received that I just can’t talk about them all. To find out more about these companies, head over to ShiftCon Media.
