Air Fryer Review 2019 | Is It Worth The Money?
Girls, here’s my air fryer review! I finally got the air fryer! I saw so many of my fellow health coaches making incredible looking meat and veggie dishes and the fomo got me. It’s claim to fame is how it can turn anything into a crisp, quickly cooked meal with less fat. 75% less actually! For instance, I love to order sweet potato fries at restaurants but I know they dip them into all the nasty oils to give them the crisp texture.
Well this gadget doesn’t use oil. It uses a high speed convection system that makes everything taste like restaurant foods! Winning!!! Anytime we can get nutrient dense vegetables and lean meats to taste delicious, I’m on board! You will need to coat them a little with 1 tsp-1 Tbsp but that’s it! My community is all about this new discovery & a lot of my clients are jumping on the airfryer train!
“Skinny Taste One and Done” is a book I highly recommend: Recipe Book HERE!.
If you have an Instant Pot (my exact one is here, My Instant Pot) or air fryer, it’s worth your investment. One and done style meals that will not compromise your waistline but be full of flavor! Check out my Instant Pot Article and Recipe HERE
Here is the specific TOP rated Philips HD9220 Airfryer that I have: Philips Airfryer HERE!
Nothing has taken longer than 15 min to cook, it sounds like a small fan when it’s on and then beeps when it’s done. It is loud enough to hear from your laundry room! 😉 #momlife
The handle doesn’t get hot so if your kiddos are old enough to pull the drawer out and dump their own fries, you could take a break for a second. I love that I don’t have to wait to preheat the oven anymore, this air fryer just gets right to work! Between amazon prime and my amazing kitchen gadgets, I’m set for speed & last minute planning!
I recently saw a turkey burger recipe I’ll be making and want to try salmon soon! Roasted veggies will not take as long now so we will be having those more as well! I hope this air fryer review helped you. Let me know if you snag it because I’d love to hear what you make!!

FabFitFun Winter 2019 Full Review | Is It Worth It?
I finally did it! After a year of asking all my friends what FabFitFun box was their favorite, this one WON!!
Save $10 on your box with my link here so you know you’re getting the same options I’ve shown here. FabFitFun Custom Box HERE!
The main reason this box stood out to me was because of the jade roller. I get terrible “puffy face” if I get on a plane or even look at a glass of wine. I’m excited to travel with this tool and keep it in the fridge for the refreshing and relaxing effects it will bring. The rollers at Nordstrom are around $20 so I thought all the other products I got would be worth my extra investment.
It was really fun customizing my box! You get an email before your box ships every three months so you can see what you want and what you don’t want. I think I could use some of the fun products as gifts for my friends or family if I don’t think I’d use them.
If you delay on investing in self-care goodies like I do, wait no more!! This is something that will bring fun and excitement each season to your home. I’ve heard Birchbox and Ipsy are fun as well (Birchbox winning in popularity) but everyone still says FitFabFun is their favorite! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Babyliss Pro Curling Iron, The Best Curling Iron EVER!
I am only slightly freaking out right now, girls. If you have been frustrated at all with your hair and how it’s styling, something from this blog should help you start enjoying the entire process. I know first hand how frizzy and unruly hair can be in humidity and also from the highlighting chemicals and styling tools. Did you know your flat iron and curling iron can actually be damaging your hair every time you use them?
I know now that my curling iron was not helping me one bit!!! I was so tempted to invest in the T3 system I kept seeing women rave about and while I’m sure the tools are beyond amazing, my budget does not fit that type of investment right now.
So I asked my hair bestie and she quickly knew where to send me. Straight to the Babyliss Pro line of tools. After posting about this on my Instagram stories today, about 4 of my friends immediately responded that they have been using this brand of tools for a while and LOVE it!! I was behind the times on this but not any more!
Here is the curling iron I purchased. 1 inch is the perfect size for me right now. https://amzn.to/2PlpcyI
I also talk highly of these tried and true styling products I’ve been loving lately. Here they are in order of how I use them on hair wash day. I explain how and why I use them in my video for you.
First I sleep on this pillowcase to prevent fine lines and hair kinks: https://amzn.to/2UmtKsl
I also love these hair ties for my workouts because they don’t leave marks in my hair: https://amzn.to/2QhkXts
Sexy Hair Active Recovery: http://bit.ly/sexyhairactiverecovery
Moroccan Oil Root Boost: https://amzn.to/2L4mPjq

If you get this brand of styling tools, you have to message me and let me know how much better your hair wash days are.

Stacy’s Favorite Supplements
I put together all the supplements I take daily for you. It’s taken me five years to find my rhythm with it all and some days, when my kids were little, I was lucky to get even one balanced meal in a day!
The struggle is real but we cannot pour from an empty cup so this quick system I follow makes me feel so much more energized and ready to face the day! I understand my metabolism is not going to work in my favor anymore so I need to keep it up as well as protect my gut health to ward off disease as much as possible! Having a strong allergy to gluten, I swear my body is more sensitive!
Here’s my morning to evening plan!
I start with Mom-crack which is basically my liquid sunshine. I use it to help with muscle endurance during and a focused energy boost pre-workout. You can get yours here: MOMCRACK
Then I will re-fuel with this superfood shake! With omegas, Vitamin C, prebiotics and probiotics and 70+ exotic superfoods..it’s my everything shake! After a couple month of drinking it, I noticed way less bloat, leaner muscle mass and better skin! It’s my breakfast, or any time throughout the day I need a fast nutrient dense meal: SHAKEOLOGY
And a handful of spinach. I blend it in my Blendtec blender and go!
Next up, I make sure to get collagen I’m once a day and this has been my go-to lately! I take 1 Tbsp a day and it helps with repairing all tissues and keeping my hair, skin and nails repaired. It also helps with muscle repair, retention and recovery. It helps me look and feel younger. This brand is specifically a medical grade and used for chemotherapy patients so their muscles don’t atrophy during treatments. COLLAGEN
My Vitamin D quick fix to up my immune system is this one! You can drop it in your Shakeology or just right on your tongue. VITAMIN D
I add an extra layer of probiotics to ensure my gut health because I was on a strong dose of antibiotics for what felt like forever a couple years ago..I’m still healing from that. PROBIOTICS
Before bed, Matt and I have been loving this anti-stress drink. It’s a little fizzy once you mix with hot water but then you give it a stir and enjoy it like a tea. I do 1 teaspoon in a mug of water. Here’s the link: NATURAL VITALITY NATURAL CALM
On the days my workouts are more intense or I sweat a lot, I’ll also utilize the post workout Recover drink and drink it within 30 minutes after my workout. It prevent muscle soreness and gives my body the exact carb/protein levels I need to get the most from my workout. BEACHBODY PERFORMANCE RECOVER
Here’s the hydrate. Think of it as healthy Gatorade! This performance line is NSF certified and backed by Ironman. There are now artificial flavors, colors or sugars. BEACHBODY HYDRATE
Before you purchase any of the Beachbody supplements I take, make sure to email me or fill out this form: Find Your Inner Glow so I can tell you about the bundle sale kits to save you money!
All my best,

Instant Pot, Making Healthy Food Has Never Been Easier! My Favorite Healthy Instant Pot Recipe!
I’m always posting food ideas in my Instagram stories so make sure to follow me @stacyrody. I would love to hear your favorite Instant Pot go-to recipes.
I am the gluten-free girl who loves to eat whole foods but doesn’t always have the time to make time consuming meals. I refuse to eat fast food so when I have a super busy day, I will grab Instant Pot leftovers. I reheat them and take in my thermos container.
I want to share today why I think the Instant Pot is worth getting and how you can use it. Here is the link of the size I use for my family of four: https://amzn.to/2NO5M4T
Let’s talk taste. I was an avid crock-pot user but realized how much quicker the Instant Pot could be. If I didn’t have time to combine everything in the crockpot before I left for the day, I was in trouble. This way, I can make something in 40 minute once I pick the kids up or make it early in the day and it will slow-release the pressure and keep everything warm until we are home.
The first time I made my mama’s Chicken Vegetable Soup in the Instant Pot vs. the stove top, my kids noticed a huge difference in taste. There’s something special about the way it uses pressure and nothing tastes mushy!! What took me at least 2 hrs of simmering on the stove top (which meant I needed to be home) is now about 30 minutes.
Honestly, I owned it for almost a year before I used it. My friend told me the easiest and best thing to make first was hard boiled eggs. They peel much easier because of the way they are pressure cooked. So I finally got it out and the rest is history.
Here’s my favorite recipe for Fall:
Harvest Veggie Spagetti Squash Instant Pot Recipe
Step 1: Wash and cut squash in half, then half one side so both sides fit. Remove seeds. Then add one cup water and the steamer basket. Place the squash on top. Lock lid and set to high pressure for 7 min. You can quick or slow release depending on how quickly you want the recipe done. Remove the squash and set aside to cool for 10 min.
Step 2: Drain water and remove steamer basket. Add a tsp of oil to the pot and turn it to the saute feature. Add one onion, chopped, and two packs of lean ground turkey meat. Stir often until the meat is done. Then add 2 tsp. Flavor God Spicy Everything found here: https://amzn.to/2EwZ8k0
Step 3: Add the inside of the squash back into the pot, along with one jar of your favorite low sugar pasta sauce. I’ve been using Trader Joe’s seasonal flavored sauce called “Autumnal Harvest Creamy Pasta Sauce.” It tastes amazing. I also add in some grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
Step 4: Lock the lid and set to Manual high pressure for 10 minutes. This lets all the flavors combine. You can then have it stay warm or eat right away. I will often times top with some red pepper flakes for the extra spice.
Other great things to make in it are:
White Bean Chicken Chili
Chicken Vegetable Soup
Butter Chicken Masala
You can search for a Instant Pot community on Facebook and learn new ideas there as well. I’m always posting food ideas in my Instagram stories so make sure to follow me @stacyrody. I would love to hear your favorite Instant Pot go-to recipes. Comment below with what you like making most in it!!

My Current Go-to Lip Products – A Full Product Review!
I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite lip products! I try to always have at least gloss on because there is nothing worse than dried out, pale lips..it makes me feel so blah!
I used to work with Laura Mercier and she would say you shouldn’t be able to “see” the lipstick rather have it make your lips look like a plump, juicy piece of fruit. I agree with her!
Starting with a good anti-aging product is the best bet to keeping your lips flake-free, smooth and youthful.
This product is one I use nightly and when I forget to put it on, I notice. https://amzn.to/2xNDLEg
My current faves for liners are: https://amzn.to/2Ij67LD
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Pencil – Pillow Talk This is the perfect nude for my complexion and the texture is so smooth!
The Mac liner in the color Soar is a deeper plum/nude and perfect for Fall!! You can snag yours here https://amzn.to/2OkJagI
Mac lipstick in the color Faux is so soft and to keep it more of a sheer coverage under a gloss (I don’t like thick products on my lips), I lightly dab it on. You can find it here https://amzn.to/2MYF0WZ
To top it all off, I’ve been jamming on NYX “Butter Gloss” in the color Eclair. They are sheer, not sticky or tacky and come in some really awesome colors. I buy mine at Target, with my Red card of course, but have seen them at multiple drugstores.
Last but not least, these candles are so beautiful and bring fragrance to a room in a matter of minutes. I have multiple scents and honestly love them all. This candle holder can also double as a vase when the candle burns down. My daughter has one in her room and it matches her decor perfectly. You can get yours here https://amzn.to/2DyjQzk
I’d love to hear about your favorite lip products and candle so please leave a comment below for me. XO Stace
