Kaeng Raeng: Introduction


Kaeng Raeng be healthy. be strong

An All Natural Cleanse Program 100% made in the USA with only locally sourced ingredients from the California farmers.

Lindsay Reinsmith, founder & CEO of Kaeng Raeng, and certified personal trainer created Kaeng Raeng after having a hard time staying healthy. While at Stanford and later working in investment banking, Lindsay began an all natural vegan cleanse to jumpstart weight loss and boost her health. 

Kaeng Raeng is a safer alternative to Juice Fasts. Each day of your cleanse you enjoy 3 different smoothies. Mix cold water or juice with one of the individually packaged, freeze-dried Kaeng Raeng packets and enjoy one per meal time. Each packet makes a filling and nutritious 32 oz smoothie packed with 19g of protein and 11g of fiber. There is no fasting and no starving yourself. You can also consume raw fruits and vegetables while on the cleanse, and Kaeng Raeng recommends you do!



  • Just add water and shake
OR
  • Add to your favorite smoothie recipe and blend!

Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil

If you’ve ever felt guilty by association, you and hemp seeds already have something in common. Hemp seeds come from the Cannabis sativa, a plant that is conventionally better known for its narcotic properties over its skin benefits, though the oil itself is rich in essential 3-6-9 fatty acids as well as antioxidants. Hemp seed oil acts as a vegetable protein, and provides the skin with instant moisturizing and protective properties that help to replenish and plump up the skin, prevent premature aging, and maintain moisture balance. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory, which is useful in alleviating certain rashes and skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis.

For quenched, healthy looking skin, the Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil is formulated with hemp seed extract to help strengthen and nourish skin from the inside out. Who wouldn’t want to be associated with that?

Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil

This free radical, hydrating oil is formulated with 18 actives in addition to hemp seed extract,  including argan oil, goji and camu camu. These natural antioxidants and active essentials work hand in hand to liberate the skin from signs of aging and protect against photoaging. By leaving out harmful chemicals, parabens, synthetic color and fragrance, Mad Hippie Antioxidant Facial Oil helps skin achieve true hydration harmony.

PlantFusion protein + Interview with the brand


SV: Can you tell us how it got started?
 PlantFusion was started four years ago with an idea to make plant-based nutrition easier and more delicious.

SV: Can you tell us about your products? 
We make plant based products using ingredients that we believe are not only good for our bodies, but good for our planet as well. We are people who have grown up in the “health food” lifestyle and embrace the philosophies of holistic living.

SV: What are in your products that are different from other companies? 
How often do you recommend consuming the supplement? It all depends on what you like. It can be as simple as adding one scoop in 10-12 oz of your favorite beverage, or adding fresh fruit into a blender and making a smoothie. We even have people that bake with PlantFusion!

SV: Can you tell us the difference between Phood and PlantFusion? 
PlantFusion is our original product. A plant based protein shake made with a blend of peas, artichokes, quinoa, and amaranth; PlantFusion is first and foremost a protein supplement. Phood is a much more complex product. We characterize it as a 100% plant based whole food meal shake. Essentially 8 supplements in one; Phood consists of the PlantFusion protein blend, wholefood vitamins/minerals, omega 3-6-9, complex carbs made from ancient grains, 6g of fiber, a cruciferous greens complex, 1 billion probiotics, and antioxidants.

SV: What are different ways to incorporate PlantFusion into food? 
The options are endless! We’ve seen PlantFusion brownies, cookies, pancakes, scones, granola bars, cakes, yogurt, oatmeal… even ice cream! Just search our website or Pinterest for new and exciting recipes.

SV: Can you tell us one delicious smoothie recipe to make using Plant Fusion? 
Here are two of favorites:

PlantFusion Creamsicle
1 scoop Van PlantFusiuon
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup water
3 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate
½ frozen banana
2-4 ice cubes

PlantFusion Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie
1 scoop Choc PlantFusion
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2-4 ice cubes

When looking for products that are all-natural, it's hard to find one that tastes great and gives what it needs to in order to be healthy and perform well. Typically, plant protein products are generally processed and are not as natural as you think. However, Plantfusion is different, and we love that this plant protein powder is organic, vegan, natural, non-GMO, with great ingredients. 
We love this as a daily supplement! The powder mixes very easily with anything: fruit smoothies, yogurt, (rice/almond/soy) milk, or plain water. With 10 seconds of shaking in a protein mixer or even a couple rotations of a spoon in water and it has dissolved! The texture is not too thin and not too thick and leaves no chunks. The result is a drink that has substance but still easy for sipping. We suggest that the powder should be put inside whatever container you use for preparing/drinking with some care. If not, it will have a tendency to create small clouds of powder if carelessly dumped into a tall glass.
As for flavor...the vanilla flavor is nice, not overly rich; a nice accent to any beverage.The chocolate is as well.
Overall, this is a great product for anyone seeking an alternative to protein powders that are not natural. This product is dairy free, soy free, hypoallergenic...Be active and stay natural!

Violife’s Slim Sonic Toothbrush

Brush up in style with Violife’s Slim Sonic Toothbrush. This sonic powered, portable toothbrush delivers a sparking smile with 22,000 brush strokes per minute. The slim, mascara-style vented cap design is ideal for your handbag, gym bag or desk drawer. Each Slim Sonic comes with a free replacement head and AAA batter.
Available in a variety of bright colors and patterns to suit your style, the Slim Sonic comes with a free replacement head and AAA battery so you're ready to go as soon as you open the package!



This is the first electric portable toothbrush and we love it! (We know what we will be using as a stocking stuffer when December comes around.)

This is not your typical spinning electric toothbrush. It isn't a spinning electric toothbrush and does not have a large brush-head. Through a combination of high frequency and high amplitude bristle motions, the movement of the brush head in your mouth creates a high velocity of movement that is so fast it vibrates, and moves water and toothpaste around so quickly that it breaks down plaque. 

We prefer the size of the brush-head as the smaller brush-head moves easily around your mouth and behind teeth. (Would be especially great for those who have braces) And, a huge plus is that this toothbrush is portable and chic. It makes a fantastic brush on the go. 


                                                                                          
The Slim Sonic Toothbrush retails for $15 online via www.violife.com and comes in multiple designs.
