How many of you have made the commitment to eat better only to get derailed a few months/weeks/days into it? With a myriad of hurdles that get in the way (time, money, desire, etc.) it seems that losing motivation to eat healthy is common.
So how do you stay motivated to eat well? That’s the golden question. After years (and years and years) or vowing to “eat better” and always falling back into bad habits, I was amazed to see real change and progress happen a couple of years ago. And I am happy to say that those changes have been pretty permanent. || Read more
Hopefully, this list of natural sunburn remedies isn’t something you need very often. Let’s be honest, I rarely use sunscreen (and when I do I either make my own or look diligently for the least toxic sunscreen available). I believe getting sunshine is essential to good health. I protect my skin mostly through a nourishing diet. And I cover up if I know I’ll be out long because I do take sun damage seriously.
Luckily, I haven’t had a real sunburn in almost 20 years. But with my unbelievably white skin being passed down to my daughter, I want to be prepared for the worse. And that’s why I’ve complied this list of natural sunburn remedies. || Read more

Is aspartame dangerous? Depends who you ask. This artificial sweetener has found its way into more than 6,000 products including carbonated and powdered soft drinks, chewing gum, confections, gelatins, dessert mixes, puddings and fillings, frozen desserts, yogurt, tabletop sweeteners, and some pharmaceuticals such as vitamins and sugar-free cough drops. Currently aspartame is consumed by over 200 million people around the world (source).
That’s a lot of food… and a lot of people. Looks like the question: “Is aspartame dangerous” is one we all should be asking. || Read more
Making the transition from a Standard American Diet to a real, whole foods diet was not easy for me. Sure, once I got my bearings I was so glad to see the changes I was making… but that’s not to say that I didn’t have my moments of “what am I doing?” and “how can I continue to do this?”
I was (and still am) grateful for the online world and support that helped me slowly navigate through all the information available, but I definitely made some mistakes along the way that made my transition much more difficult than it needed to be. And that’s why I’m here today: To hopefully help someone from making the same mistakes I did. Whether you are new to real food or know someone who is, I hope these five little reminders can make real food easier and more enjoyable. || Read more
