Is My Poop Normal?

This topic may be uncomfortable, but it’s so important for you to know what makes a healthy “poop” because it can tell you a lot about your digestion.

I know you are either dying to dive into this post, or feeling like you want to close this and forget I ever mentioned it.

Which one will it be? Continue reading »

Do you have symptoms that just don’t seem to go away?

 

I’m not only talking about just digestive symptoms but any random aches, pains, discomforts, etc.?

In this post, I go over a few of the common symptoms, and two (very) common foods that you may be reacting to, but don’t even know it. Continue reading »

skinny choc shakeSkinny Chocolate Shake

So we are the typical family that loves a good burger, fries and milkshake.

And this is a super fun family meal to make together.

When I can, I love to upgrade our meals to be just a bit healthier. Such as buying grass fed beef, or local. Making our own fries from local potatoes and using coconut oil in the oven.

And lastly adding a yummy milkshake to wash it all down!
