Focusing On Convenience! – Brit, Team Ambrosia

It’s been a minute since I have posted about our wedding progress! But it’s for good reason… wedding planning has been keeping me BUSY! Thankfully we’ve gotten all of the big ticket items – like our venue, wedding dress, flowers, photography, catering etc. – out of the way so NOW I am finally able to take a moment to update you all on the progress! YAY!

It’s come to a point in our wedding planning process that we finally get to focus on all of the FUN stuff like cake and food tastings… I’m particularly excited about the food tastings bit! But MOST importantly, I am excited to take on a few beauty tasks that I’ve been meaning to take care of but just haven’t had the time to do so! Admittedly, these sorts of things have taken a bit of a back seat – what with all of the vendor meetings – so I am excited to be able to bring them back to the forefront and make them a priority again!

Now if there’s one thing I’ve learned through the wedding planning process it’s that convenience is KEY! So today, I am sharing a few tips and tricks that center all around convenience, and how to take time for yourself during wedding planning!

Mouthwashes over Teeth Whitening Appointments!

It’s incredibly popular for brides to start visiting their dentist for teeth whitening appointments prior to the big day! I can’t say I blame them… you’ll be smiling for TONS of photos on your wedding day, so having pearly whites is somewhat of a necessity! BUT… there are some drawbacks to professional teeth whitening! Not only is this a pretty time consuming task, taking you away from other integral bridal duties for extended periods of time, but teeth whitening can affect your enamel and gum health in a negative way!

The solution? My Magic Mud; Charcoal Mouthwashes! This Activated Charcoal Oral Rinse is formulated with a 35% concentration of xylitol, reverse osmosis water, turmeric, and aloe vera! All of these wonderful, natural ingredients help to sooth the mouth & gums, brighten your smile, & protect against cavity-causing bacteria! PLUS this all takes place within the convenience of your own home! Start integrating this mouthwash into your nightly routine a couple of months out from the wedding for a brighter, more natural smile!

Frozen Foods over Meals from Scratch!

Trust me… I can’t believe I’m saying this either! BUT when the situation warrants, and you’re scrambling with last minute wedding responsibilities, the LAST thing you want to be doing is cooking all of your meals from scratch! Sometimes – frozen foods are a NECESSITY! Especially during the final few days before your wedding! But instead of turning to unhealthy GMO-rich frozen foods…. Look to healthier options like Gardein’s wholesome range of tasty plant-based foods which contain a good source of fiber and are low in fat! The great news is that they have a whole slew of new products to choose from like Chick’n Scallopini, Beefless Tips, Chick’n Sliders, Meatballs, Chick’n Strips, Chick’n Patties, & Veggie Burger! Your options as a stressed out, time-limited bride are endless!!!

Pssssst…. On a side-note, if you’re a bride-to-be who’s cut out sugars to feel your very best on the big day, but still have a few cravings here and there, I’ve got a pretty great solution for you! Nature’s Path just came out with Organic Toaster Pastries and they are unreal! Their toaster pastries will help brides-to-be satisfy the sweet tooth, but without the guilt! They’re made with real fruit and always free from unwanted preservatives and high fructose corn syrup!

Protein Bars and Drinks over Protein Smoothies!

Okay, I’m the first one to admit… I LOVE protein smoothies! But to be honest they are so time consuming and somewhat messy to put together in the morning! When I’m sleepy in the morning, and trying to get out the door, the last thing I want to do is start making a protein smoothie! So for convenience-sake I love turning to paleo protein bars from Julian Bakery or the Iconic Protein Drinks! Both are great options if you’re looking to get your protein fix in a hurry!

When it comes to Iconic, their protein drink is 100% all natural with no artificial ingredients or chemicals! What’s even better is that their protein is grass-fed which improves the quality of cow’s milk and makes the milk richer in omega-3 fats, vitamin E, beta-carotene, & CLA resulting in 3-5 times the beneficial nutrients! Sign me up!

The paleo protein bars from Julian Bakery are another source of protein, containing a whopping 20g and can be used as a snack or meal replacement! They’re 100% paleo, whey-free, and no sugar alcohols! All bars are sweetened with monk fruit or organic stevia leaf.

When you’re planning a wedding… every single last millisecond counts, so it’s always great to grab a quick protein product when I’m running out the door!
