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.

And if your digestion is off, this could be an indication that something else is going on that you need to address.

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 »

Traveling…I get asked all the time what I pack when I travel. Besides the obvious of clothes & shoes, I always pack these extras. Years ago I wasn’t so natural. I would pack items from a drugstore for coughs, colds and sniffles, headaches, tummy aches – you know- whatever might come up when you are travelling with your family…something for stress reduction!, but over the years I’ve become a lot more preventative with keeping my immune system strong and therefore no more of those. I’ve upped my nutrition and it comes with me. I’m all natural when it comes to what I put on my skin and in my body. And yes, I feel the benefits. I’ve got natural items for digestion, headaches, too much time in the sun, staying calm, having great sleeps and more.

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!

My kids love this. It’s a great step up from having a traditional milkshake. This one is loaded with nutritional goodness and you can add more ice and less liquid to make it thicker. Continue reading »
