Diane: Direct Vlog
On this week's vlog, I'm breaking down protein powders. What's the difference between collagen and gelatin? And how are they different from other protein powders, like whey or egg white protein?
I don't always include updates about Beautycounter in these posts, but I did want to give you the heads up about a BIG gift announcement I sent out yesterday to my safer skincare list, as well as giving all the scoop on the new holiday line that I am obsessing over already!

BREAKFAST SO EXTRA. // Did I do that right? Is that how I’m supposed to use that expression? Is extra the new fleek? So many questions. . What’s in my bowl? Layered from the bottom up: lemony kale (recipe from @fedandfit), scrambled @vitalfarms eggs with leftovers from last night’s chicken fajita dinner, two different sausages (a cheddar jalapeño @twrgrassfedbeef brat and part of a @niman_ranch apple Gouda), @farmhouseculture kraut, and some Swedish spicy mustard from our friend @mrstonton. Whew!
🎶“If you’re going… to San Francisco… be sure to…” check my hashtag for where to eat 😉 #practicalpaleotravelsf 😘 – It’s not really all strictly Paleo stuff though, so I should update my tags. It’s more like healthy, gluten-free, well-sourced options that we love. ♥️ – You can always find this info on my blog as well if you’re seeing this and planning a trip and worried you’ll forget the tag. 👍🏻 – #sanfrancisco #glutenfreeSF #bayareaeats #HarperMills
SUCCESS ::: I think it’s entirely legitimate to measure success in terms of your ability to take pleasure in the small things around you every day – and to allow them bring you perhaps what some might consider a disproportionate amount of joy. And so, I do. . Two things in this photo that bring me great joy: our dog, #HarperMills (duh), and this ever-growing, lush and brightly-colored Bougainvillea. It’s almost long enough to wrap to the back of our house and I’m bursting with joy about that. . Not happy? If you change the way you measure success in your life (if you’re success-oriented as most of us are), I bet you’d find you’re far more fulfilled and happier every day as a result. Where can you find joy in the little things? And, when you do, come back and tell me how that makes you FEEL. . #dianedirect #gratitude #success #bordercolliemix
