Weekly Healthy Chicks in the Community Feature: Lauren Lampert of AukaLife

Happy Fri-YAY ladies! I’m extra happy today, as I just got my most recent thyroid bloodwork back, and I’m happy to report my levels have pretty much normalized. I’ll likely write a detailed post on this soon, but for now you can catch my instagram stories for the latest updates or read this and this post for the background on my journey with Hashimoto’s.

Since it’s Friday, we’re back for another round of Healthy Chicks in the Community, a weekly series highlighting rockstar Girl Bosses doing their thang in the wellness community. Since I love supporting fellow female entrepreneurs — especially in the wellness space — I’m thrilled to introduce you to Lauren Lampert, the founder of AukaLife. Offering up a slew of nutrient-rich superfood blends in single-serve pouches, AukaLife is on a mission to simplify your morning smoothie routine.

I’ll let Lauren, the brains behind the operation, take it from here…I hope you leave feeling as inspired as I am! 😉
