Mother’s Need to be Selfish

Dorothy's Snapshot Experience at Motherhood After looking after my niece for only two days I feel like I got a snapshot of the rugged truth about motherhood. Before having this experience I never understood completely how these little people take absolutely everything out you. There is no time to even think about your own needs. Heck there isn’t even time to go to the bathroom let alone eat and forget about getting in a workout. NO TIME for that! During that brief period of time I realized that...

True Form’s Mag Bucha

This is our very first kombucha. But it's not just kombucha. It's a Mag Bucha. So what we've done is we've put our magnesium in the kombucha. How cool is that? Now, I have looked around a little bit and I haven't seen any other companies do this, at least not yet. It's certainly not common and I feel like being first to market is super important.  So having a new product Kombucha is kind of going crazy right now. There's tons of companies popping up, but I don't know any companies t...

Detoxing Hard Metals With Chlorella

This is our seafood pasta which I absolutely love. Even though we don't eat seafood all that often, I still very much enjoy it from time to time. Scallops and shrimp in white sauce and pasta, yes please! What many people don't know is, most (meaning all) seafood will contain at least some form of hard metals. The bigger the fish, the longer they live and the more hard metals they consume in the oceans - because we care so deeply for them (yes, I'm being sarcastic ;)). The problem is, ...

Why We Chose our Greens and Why you Might Choose Them Too

In Detoxify Yourself on pg 271 I talk about our green and why we too into them. Our greens are actually grown in fresh water, which may not be a concern for everyone but it is for us. And it's the reason we haven't gotten into fish oil yet. I'm not saying we never will be we take careful consideration before we get into any product, and environment certainly plays a role in our decision to move forward with a product or pass on it. Another reason we struggle with the idea of getting into...

Young Living Toothpaste and Deodorant

We had some questions about what we use for 'clean' products. I had a really nice conversation with Amanda actually that I thought was worth sharing here too in case anyone else is interested. On the left you see the Aromabright 'toothpaste' which I actually don't like as toothpaste. This is our deodorant most of the time, especially when I'm not using my rock crystal. And on the right we have the actual toothpaste that we use. It's the whitening brand. Which I really like! If you're i...

The Forgotten About Macro: Antioxidants / Fibre

https://youtu.be/p5isB7K_P-M Most people don’t consider the health benefits when it comes to veggies, which is exactly what this category is. Just before this section I did talk about vegetables but let’s offer a slightly different angle to help you understand the importance here. The reason we call it the forgotten macronutrient is because many people actually and literally forget about it. What’s for dinner, ‘steak and potatoes’. What about a roast, or even ‘fried chicken’, and how ab...

Where do you get your protein from?

https://youtu.be/eU3zXVxaVnw Protein is probably the most difficult macronutrient to discuss simply because we all grew up a certain way and to try and change the thought process is extremely difficult. I’m not trying to change your thought process here, more so, I’m trying to show you that it doesn’t always have to be a certain way simply because that’s what you know. We can get protein from different sources other than from meat or animal sources. But first let me explain the level...

Carbs: Eat this not that

https://youtu.be/RkD6wAglJbI Carbohydrates often get a bad wrap because of the new diets out there where people try to avoid carbs all together. It’s extremely difficult to avoid carbs all together. Which makes restrictive diets that request few or no carbs at all seemingly impossible to follow. Think about it, we have carbs in the morning for toast, oatmeal, french toast, or pancakes (which is usually created with a wheat product). Then we often have a sandwich for lunch or a roll w...
