Head shot of Jessica Merchant smiling of How Sweet Eats


We had a blast chatting with Jessica Merchant, the 2-time cookbook author and founder of the wildly popular food blog How Sweet Eats.  Jessica is passionately in love with food and it shows.  Her blog is jam-packed with gorgeous photography and delicious drool-worthy recipes.  She lives in Pittsburg with her husband and two beautiful children.  She has a fantastic sense of humor which has brought millions of readers to her site – plus, her food is what we all want to be making and devouring.  She provides a nice balance of gorgeous salads and homemade dressings, pizza, all-American dinners, and yummy desserts.  Jessica is a true creative; overflowing with recipe ideas and a serious love of food.  We loved hearing details about how she got started nearly 10 years ago, where she finds day to day inspiration, and how motherhood has changed her life.  We thoroughly enjoyed Jessica and know you will too, listen in and enjoy.

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.
