New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
Money Can Be Funny
My friend (and money expert) Garrett Gunderson is setting out on a 15-city tour to educate people about how to get their financial house in order.
Now, there's no shortage of money experts out there…
…but what makes Garrett's approach really interesting and different is that he’s doing it through comedy.
Garrett filmed a comedy special about money back in April and is now trying to get it picked up by Netflix, so he’s hitting the road with his “American Ream” tour to get their attention.
Garrett is super knowledgeable and just flat-out funny (and darn handsome too—don't you think?). And after his comedy night, Garrett is hosting a 2-day workshop in select cities, where he'll teach you everything he knows about money—including how to achieve financial independence in 3 to 7 years.
If you can make it to a workshop, I highly recommend that you reserve your seat now. This is a rare chance to learn directly from Garrett and have fun while doing it.
Check out all of the details and reserve your spot for The American Ream Tour here.
Enjoy Chocolate Every Single Day (Yes, Really)
I don’t know about you, but I don’t really need an excuse to eat chocolate.
Chocolate cake, chocolate ice cream, chocolate in my smoothies—I love it all.
That’s why I was stoked when I found out about this cool new “blissful” Peruvian chocolate mix. You see, most chocolate is grown over on the west coast of Africa, but small batches of chocolate also come from the jungles of Peru. Peru has some of the greatest biological diversity on the planet, with the ideal growing synergy of plant species, soils, and climates for cacao. As a result, Peruvian chocolate is one of the healthiest and highest antioxidant foods you can eat. Peruvian chocolate helps regulate blood sugar, reduces free radicals and fights inflammation, promotes healthy sleep, and even helps to prevent brain aging.
The Aztecs, Mayans, Peruvians, and the Incas have been eating this type of chocolate for centuries, as early as 460 AD. By the 17th century, Peruvian chocolate was all the rage in Europe, and soon, the world. Ancient tribes believed that raw cacao has special powers, enabling them to tap into higher mental and physical highs and clarity.
One of my favorite new ways to enjoy this unique Peruvian chocolate is in a powedered product called Cacao Bliss. The raw cacao in Cacao Bliss is sourced from Peru, harvested naturally by hand, and sun-dried before being ground into a fine powder. Cacao Bliss also contains turmeric, black pepper, MCT oil, Ceylon cinnamon, and Himalayan salt, making it a nutritional powerhouse. Plus, it’s certified organic, vegan, keto-friendly, non-GMO, and soy-, dairy-, and gluten-free. You can cook with Cacao Bliss for decadent chocolate desserts, add it to your smoothie, make hot chocolate, or even add it to your coffee. So there you go…you have my permission to enjoy chocolate every single day. For you chocolate-heads out there, you're welcome. :)

I Want To Know What You've Got Cooking
I'm so stoked about the positive feedback I've been getting about my new Boundless Cookbook. The cookbook was a labor of love, but I'm really proud of the end result (especially considering I'm definitely not a trained chef).
Now that the Boundless Cookbook is available on Amazon, I have a favor to ask…
If you have the cookbook and you love it, can you hop on over to Amazon and leave a review? Amazon reviews—as I bet you know—are super important. I want your honest feedback and I'll be reading them to hear what you think.
You can leave your review on Amazon right here (and if you don't have a cookbook yet, and you're an Amazon Prime member, you could have your copy at your doorstep as early as tomorrow).
