Podcast chat with ChihYu Smith, I Heart Umami
We loved getting to know ChihYu Smith, the creator of the food blog I Heart Umami.  ChihYu is from Taiwan and heavily influenced by her mother and grandparents who taught her to cook traditional family recipes.  After moving to NYC to attend graduate school, she landed  a very demanding job.  Two years into this taxing schedule, she began feeling the longterm effects of stress and poor diet.  Motivated for change, she discovered the paleo diet and saw fast and lasting results.  ChihYu’s blog began as a way to document her recipes and is now a very popular resource for delicious Asian-inspired Paleo, Whole30, and Keto recipes.  
In this interview, ChihYu shares about the transition of life as a concert pianist to full-time food blogger.  She discusses what motivates her positivity, what she’s learned developing her niche, and some of her favorite asian dishes.  Her cookbook Asian Paleo is launching in May and we cannot wait to get ourselves a copy.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade and Medically Endorsed

30% Off Use Code: WEGETTOKNOW

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed.  All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements?  Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies?  They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity. 

When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best.   I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
