It’s Time to Try a Cup – This Post is about Periods
Traditional period products are expensive, wasteful, uncomfortable, and packed with plastic and other harmful chemicals. I started hearing about alternative period products a few years ago, things like The Diva Cup and Thinx, but was too afraid to make the switch, until this year.

Hot Chickz – L.A. Hot Chicken, Hidden Gem in La Puente
As I write this I have eaten at Hot Chickz, three times, twice in one weekend. I have tried both versions of their sandwiches, their chicken sandwich (served on a bun) and their Hot Chick Sandwich (served on a roll).

Now I could go on and on about the amount of plastic waste produced by people drinking water bottles (over 60 million water bottles are thrown away everyday in the US) or how much plastic is entering our oceans annually (8 million metric tons), which if you are reading this, you probably were expecting that, but I realize not everyone cares about that. Not everyone is concerned with how much plastic they waste or how much that plastic is hurting the planet, but most people do care about their money and how much they are wasting or how much they could save.
