Vacation = treating, binging, and feeling crappy when all is said and done. That's what I used to think. When I lived in California I was over 2,000 miles from home and I got a lot of experience with long-distance travel and I began to learn convenient tips that weren't compromising for my body.
This spring I began replacing my conventional teas with Organic, mostly herbal ones.
An important part of reducing my body's exposure to toxins is buying organic as much as I can. Organic means there's a higher standard for quality growing and ingredients and often having a 3rd party certification (like USDA) provides integrity assurance that organic isn't just a company claim.
There are a lot of hype out there about "organic" and "natural" products and a lot of brands and companies to wade through. The more I read, the more I discovered fakes! It led me to ask: "how do I know it's the real deal?"
I've decided to start sharing new products I'm trying and the steps I'm taking on a monthly basis toward a healthier lifestyle and sustainable home! Growth and improvement don't happen over night. Small, but intentional steps add up over time. With that being said, welcome to the first installment of Monthly Green Roundup.
Getting to the root of why I'm eating/not eating certain foods, I realized it's not that a food is "bad" in itself, as much as it just doesn't serve my body well. If I view the food I eat as the building blocks for my mind, body and even emotional well-being, eating foods that my body can't use or foods that cause destruction, doesn't fulfill my purpose.
