Maker’s Diet in Action: My Favorite Organic Resources

They say knowledge is power, and I have to agree. In the journey for health, we find ourselves learning a ton, but also with a LOT of questions. That’s how it was for me, at least. For a while it seemed I was on information overload- discovering the five hundred million things in my life that were toxic in some way, shape or form. But as I researched, and the years went by, things weren’t so overwhelming, because they became second nature. In case you’re just starting your journey, here are a couple great resources to use whenever you’re needing…

Maker’s Diet in Action: Day 38, Phase 3!

(Here’s my hibiscus flower that I found waiting for me outside this morning! Thank God for 85-90 degree weather- 115 was getting REALLY old!) Anyway, I cannot believe 40 days is up on Friday!!! It has been an awesome ride and I am so glad I went through all 3 phases again. I’m fully on Phase 3 now, but really haven’t been eating much bread or grains. I have, however, been loving some apples and peanut butter! 🙂 Here’s what I ate yesterday, day 37: Breakfast: 1 banana 2 eggs 1 tbsp coconut oil 3 Primal Defense Lunch: Same thing…

Maker’s Diet in Action: Day 37, Phase 3!

Wow! Only 3 more days until our 40 day journey is officially over! When I got started six years ago, the end of the 40 days was a major milestone- by the end of this time frame, I was out of bed, and functioning in normal life again. It was also around this time when I realized that we needed to transform the other areas of our lives (like the products we used to clean our home and as personal care products) just like we had transformed our eating! After the 40 days is up, I’ll be diving back into…

Maker’s Diet in Action: Day 32, Phase 3!

I am so excited I could jump through my computer! Seriously, what I have to say today could change your life! Really, it has changed mine and I am THRILLED to share it with you! Let me start by saying it’s about exercise.   Don’t check out yet! A little background is in order. Exercise has ALWAYS been my weak point. I mean, before I had kids, I had no "need" to exercise- aka "I can fit in my favorite jeans without trying," which is actually a lame excuse for mediocrity, but that’s another post! I dabbled in walking for…

Maker’s Diet in Action: Day 24, Phase 2!

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? This Sunday is our 7th wedding anniversary, so my husband and I are trying to come up with a fun place to go to celebrate. It’s slightly difficult, seeing as we no longer go to the one totally organic restaurant in our area, and Whole Foods isn’t exactly the place for a nice wedding anniversary celebration! Honestly, I think we’d stay in and make a nice meal ourselves, but now that we have three kids, we basically have to leave the house if we want to spend truly…
