The Brussels Sprout has such a bad rep, they're really the underdog of all veggies. They sadly lay idle in the supermarket next to the bitter melon (okay, okay, that reference may be slightly exaggerated, no one likes bitter melon). I have always loved brussels sprouts, but they are not love at first bite for everyone. When I moved back from San Francisco I made my mom some crispy roasted maple balsamic brussels and she has since forever loved brussels. My dad and brother however were never enthusiastic about them, until now. Behold! The raw shaved brussels sprout salad! Who would've thought?
Despite how delicious candles (and plug ins/air fresheners) smell the truth is they are health hazards. You can easily inspire a mood or create a welcoming environment through scent naturally. The best part is? It's easy, and 'll teach you! But first, let's ditch all of the scented candles and toss the plug ins and air fresheners while you're at it. Bye-bye toxins, hello naturally inviting scents.
Do you ever just need a break? I'm talking about totally unplugging and getting away? I did. I really, really did. So we booked ourselves a trip through Airbnb to North Carolina and stayed on a wonderful farm tucked away in the mountains.
You made your Citrus Vinegar, right? Good. Now you can officially replace three of your toxic home products with homemade, healthy & Eco-friendly ones! The Citrus vinegar is the common ingredient for the homemade all purpose cleaner, the wood cleaner & polish, and the towel & linen softener.
These brownies are delicious and easy to make. The best part is? They're healthy! You can whip up a batch even on the busiest of nights.
If you've never had a haystack then you're missing something very special in your life! There is this company down in South Florida called Glaser Farms and they make a a variety of delicious healthy snacks, dressings, pesto, etc. I used to get them at a market in Miami. Now that I no longer live down there I've learned to make my own version of the beloved haystacks. They're so sweet and delicious. The perfect healthier version to a dessert! Pair with a cuppa coffee and you're set!
It’s here. Cold and Flu season, I mean. Which means it’s time to prepare. By prepare I absolutely do not mean go and get the flu shot- actually, quite the opposite.
It's time to build the immune system so you are stronger. The flu shot contains toxic ingredients and adjuvants that stress the body and lower the immune system. In addition it is statically not effective, despite the amount of inflated and misleading information advertised and purposely bias studies. The risk of the side effects and permanent damage from the flu shot are so frightening you'll scream if someone ever dares to come at you with it (just read any flu vaccine packet insert for details- you can request this at any time in order to make an informed decision on what's best for you and your family. In fact, you need to request it, otherwise there really is no informed consent at all). Also see part 5 of Vaccines Revealed for more information.
Honey, ginger and lemon, on the other hand, are all fantastic ways to support the immune system! Make this now and keep it in your fridge all season long.
Traditional cleaning products are laden with toxic chemicals. When we are exposed to these chemicals on a regular basis our bodies become inundated. What we are routinely exposed to we absorb- and yes, this includes cleaning chemicals. We already live in a toxic world, the food we eat, the water we drink, the medications we take, etc. all take a toll of our body. When we can make better choices, we should. If it's possible to reduce the toxic burden by any means, we should. In the process not only are you making it easier on your body (one less thing to inundate your liver with), but you're also saving money and contributing to a less consumptive lifestyle which directly effects the planet.
So what is Citrus Vinegar? It is white vinegar that has been infusing with citrus peels, the end result being a product that smells a whole lot better than straight vinegar and becomes a fantastic base for DIY house hold products such as an all purpose cleaner, wood cleaner and polish, and fabric softener (stay tuned for those recipes- in the meantime, get your citrus vinegar ready!).
Listen up ladies! We've got something serious to talk about...
I know many of you can relate to this... In the past I've struggled with the fine line of wanting to purge my entire home of anything toxic but also wanting to have gorgeous hair and flawless makeup. Are the two mutually exclusive? Can you have your cake and eat it too?
You've heard the term oil pulling, I'm sure. It's been making quite the splash, the term being thrown around as our latest health trend. But oil pulling is far from a fad or trend, it's an ancient Ayurvedic Indian tradition that has been around for thousands of years. It involves pulling oil through your teeth, or swishing it around your mouth, for up to 15 minutes a day. Why do this? The reasons are plenty. For starters, it destroys an array of oral microbes from viruses to bacteria to protozoa, it reduces plaque build up, whitens teeth, improves bad breath and detoxes the body.
