The Shocking Truth About GMO’s {Going Greener}

Truth about GMOs

I don’t watch a lot of tv… my kids make sure of that! But the other day I sat down to do laundry and was looking for a show on Netflix when I came across a documentary called GMO OMG that peeked my curiosity! It’s 90 minutes long, but thanks to being a mother of three boys, I took me about 4 hours to finish it. The joys of parenting! All kidding aside, this movie … [ READ MORE ]

Teflon and Maraschino Cherries {Going Greener}

Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE, AKA Teflon

Almost every family has at least one Teflon pan in their kitchen! My parents always used Teflon pans when I was growing up. And I’ve always had a few also! When I got married, my husband told me (while using my favorite Teflon pan) that it was bad to use Teflon. He said that it breaks down and gets into the food (especially as the pan gets older).

Life with Migraines

I’ve been living with migraines most of my life. It probably started when I was a teenager, but I don’t remember for sure. They weren’t very frequent when they started, but they’ve always been really bad. The longer I’ve had them, the more frequent they’ve become.

Nix the Toxins with a Natural Detox Bath

I ran across a natural detox bath recipe from Jolly Mom and decided to try it. I always do my research when trying something I don’t have much knowledge about. So I found variations of this recipe multiple times with a lot of great responses to trying it. A lot of people said it made them sweat out toxins. I don’t eat perfect and I’m aware there are many unwanted toxins in my body, so … [ READ MORE ]

My Journey to Feeling Better

Since I gave birth to my husband’s and my second baby, I decided to get an IUD (I will not mention which one at this point because I believe it’s irrelevant and I wouldn’t recommend getting any including the one I had). It seemed like the easiest and most reliable option at the time, since a mistake with the pill led to our second pregnancy, but a wonderful little boy (now 2). After I got … [ READ MORE ]
