Going "No-'Poo"

Going "No-'Poo"
Ready for an extremely crunchy topic? No 'poo! No, I am not talking about not going to the bathroom, I am referring to the method of not shamPOOing your hair.

Toxins in Shampoo

For years, I have used shampoos, never thinking about what chemicals were in them. I never thought that what was in them could be toxic. I mean, how could they possibly be able to sell something that could be harmful? Sadly, there is no regulations on personal products. This means that anything can go into a bottle and then onto a shelf.

Organic, Conventional, and GMO - How to Tell The Difference

Organic, Conventional, and GMO - How to Tell The Difference

We have come a long way from the day when you walked into the produce department and you only had to decide between a red or green apple. Now you step into that section and there are dozens of choices, not only in colors but also in how the produce was grown. We now have the decision of organic, conventional, or GMO produce. What's the difference? How can you even tell? Isn't an apple, an apple?

So Many Chemicals, So Little Time

So Many Chemicals, So Little TimeThere are hundreds of chemicals that we put on our body. Could you name all the ingredients in your shampoo? Could you point out the toxic ones from the safe ones? I can't.

Soda Free

For over a month now, I have been soda free. Makes me sound like an alcoholic, doesn't it? For many people, it is not all that different then alcohol. Soda can be very addicting and in my opinion it is probably just as unhealthy as alcohol. We all know that soda is just full of empty calories. That's reason enough to stop. Why bother drinking soda when you could have juice which is actually beneficial to your body, or good old water? Then there's the acidity of soda. Did you know that soda has the same acidic level as vinegar? It can remove rust! Remind me why we put that into our stomachs?

Beginning on a Journey for a Lifetime

Beginning on a Journey for a Lifetime
They say your life changes once you have kids and that is true. However, nobody tells you that not only your kids will change your life but YOU will change your life for your kids. Now I'm not talking about not eating out, giving up Saturday shopping to go to soccer practices, or even the lack of sleep so your child can eat. I'm talking about how once you have a child, suddenly the world around you is no longer "safe". Things you never even thought about instantly become horrors and the stuff that keeps you up at night.
