Tips for a Healthier Family Vacation

Promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for kids has been on my agenda for a while, since promoting FitFutures with Eleven Lifestyle. Kendra recently contacted me to collaborate on this article, which I thought was a genius idea to discuss and share tips for a healthier family vacation.

Health Benefits of Kale

Happy National Kale Day! National Kale Day.org proposed National Kale Day the first Wednesday of October, and I thought I’d give a lil 411 on the health benefits of kale, how magnificent this leafy green is, and why you will want to add it to your diet! What Does Kale Taste Like? It’s in the…

Eat Less Sugar

Sugar. It’s Everywhere! Looking back to the very beginning of converting into my new lifestyle, (even before Making the Switch to Organic), the very first article I read was about sugar and the detrimental effect it has on our health. I raided the fridge, cupboards, pantry… and literally threw out anything and everything that contained…

Health Benefits to Drinking Lemon Water

Health Benefits of Fruit Fruit contains soluble dietary fiber, which helps you feel full with only a few calories (how sweet is that?!). This is due to the fiber warding…

What’s in my fridge…

Thought it would be fun to share what’s in my fridge, to give you an idea of what I buy, cook and eat. Of course, I’m missing the fridge door, spice cupboard and pantry, but let’s not get carried away here! lol As you can see, it’s mostly organic produce, with a few containers of…

Milk Does the Body Good… or does it?

If you are a milk drinker, consider the conventional milk you are drinking as a whole chemical system of agriculture. What does that mean exactly? well… conventional milk consists of antibiotics, artificial hormones, and pesticides. Gross huh? And I don’t even want to get into the living condition of the cows and they’re environment (don’t…

Switching to Organic

If you read my post Making the Switch to Organic, you would have learned of the reasons why I made the switch, and perhaps have taken an interest in doing the same. Or perhaps you are new to the site and this is the first post you are reading, so welcome 🙂 Many people often…
