5 Habits to Help Reduce Stress and Improve Health

Stress will destroy your life way before anything you eat.

If you’ve known me for long, you know that I’m the health nut of all health nuts.  I believe that healthy nutrient dense eating is incredibly important, every. single. day.

I also agree with Dr. Whals that one should try to eat 6-9 cups of veggies per day. Yum, veggies.

But, before you think I’m all crazy about food, reducing your stress level can quickly improve your health.  Chronic stress may be the most common cause of disease because your body never has time to recover from the damage inflicted upon it.

We live in a super face paced society, but you don’t have to live that way. [Read more…]

9 Superfoods You Need to Stock Up On

 9superfoodsheaderDo you know that superfoods give you super powers?

They do and that’s what I tell my kids as I am trying to educate them on proper nutrition.

Superfoods are important in the American diet; we miss out so many nutrients because our grocery store bought foods are grown in nutrient depleted soils.

Really, a superfood is a food that is super rich in nutrients.  A real superfood has been proven to deliver the nutrition the body needs to function properly.  Below is a list of superfoods, but it is definitely not a complete list.  These superfoods are some of my favorites. They are foods I keep stocked in my cabinet and hide in my family’s smoothies. [Read more…]

Giveaway: Non-Toxic Sunscreen

Non-toxic Sunscreen giveaway

A sunburn is NOT something I want to mess with when it comes to my children.  Not only do I want them to avoid burning, I don’t believe that most sunscreens on the market are the answer to good health.  Many of them contain toxic chemicals that I don’t want to massage into my children’s (or my own) skin.

The majority of sunscreens contain harmful and toxic chemical fillers and these are toxic substances you do not want to mess with.  The biggest issue with most of the fillers is that they are known hormone disrupters.  I don’t want to put that on the largest organ of my body, do you?  That is why I’m always on the lookout for a wonderful non-toxic sunscreen that actually works.   [Read more…]

I remember these words coming out of my mouth on nearly a daily basis.  My husband and I have been on a super tight budget for years.  We have always had just enough to pay our bills and purchase exactly what was necessary.  We always thought it would be nice to have just a little extra money in our pockets for a little bit of breathing room.

During this time, I felt like I really needed to stay at home with my children and do what I could to figure out how to work from home.
