The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

The Power Of Going Gray With Your Hair with Lisa from This Organic Girl

In episode #39 we are hearing the power of going gray with your hair with Lisa, from This Organic Girl.  Lisa is the face behind the blog, This Organic Girl.  Where she blogs about all things clean living, natural beauty and healthy eats.  For the last two years she’s taken her readers on the ups and downs of going gray and what sparked the whole journey in the first place. She went all in with green living just a few years ago. It was the cumulation of a couple of things that happened which brought her into “her awareness” as she calls it.  She started wondering what the hype was with “organics” and if it was really a thing or just another sales tactic. Her mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor for the fourth time, her little one was suffering from Eczema and then one day her friend Angela said to her, “Did you know they wash chickens in chlorine?”

Pretty much from that moment on Lisa was on a quest to know and went hardcore all-in.  She went crazy turning over all of her products including toothpaste, deodorant and Tupperware containers.  She threw out the kids fluoride and hydrocortisone cream. Out went the Clorox wipes and the stainless steel cleaner. Dryer sheets were a thing of the past. Forget refined sugars – they didn’t even stand a chance.  She started making my own toothpaste and makeup, she didn’t eat out, she wouldn’t even look at processed or refined food. Vinegar became my best friend. Those were the dark days…. Then after some time and some serious label reading, She realized she could actually rejoin society and still make safe decisions for her family.  Everyday more organic options, healthy restaurants, products, food stores and resources are becoming available.  Not only is Lisa passionate about spreading the message but also enjoying living out her best natural life.  After all nontoxic living is anything but boring!

EP12: How To Meal Prep And Plan Real Food Meals With Kristin Marr

EP12: How To Meal Prep And Plan Real Food Meals With Kristin Marr

In Episode #12 we are learning how to meal prep and plan real food meals with Kristin Marr, from the Live Simply Blog.  Kristin is all about returning to a time before processed food. A time when families worked together in the kitchen to enjoy real food that was grown and raised by trusted farms or backyard gardens. She is constantly in search of ways to nourish her family: finding local farms, sourcing real food from every day stores, and getting back into the kitchen and around the table. She’s always exploring practical ways to provide for her family with nourishing food within her budget.

She loves to share her real food tips and ideas for feeding the entire family nourishing real food. Email subscribers receive exclusive information featuring her best tips and tricks for nourishing a family, a free month-long printable meal plan example, and two real food and natural crash courses. Joining the Live Simply email family is always free! Along with simplifying real food, She loves to share her recipes and tips for creating a simplified, natural home. She regularly shares simple natural-living recipes, such as: homemade facial cleansermakeup remover balm5-Minute laundry soapall-purpose cleaner, and much more. She also share tips for prioritizing what to make versus buy, along with her favorite store-bought products for cleaning and body care. Because living a more natural lifestyle isn’t about “doing it all” or “making it all.” Natural living is just as much about simplifying as it is about using more natural products.

Why We Love It?

  • Goat whey has demonstrated positive anti-inflammatory effects in the digestive system. Cow whey has shown increased inflammatory effects.
  • Cow whey is considered allergenic whereas goat whey is considered hypoallergenic.
  • Whey protein is the “gold standard” for serious athletes. Goat whey is the “gold standard” of that “gold standard.”
  • Goat whey is amazing for our immune systems, supporting lean muscle growth and repair, as well as optimal body composition.
  • Goat whey has the full range of essential amino acids in ratios that best support the athlete in all of us
  • It is really light and doesn’t ever makes us feel bloated. That’s because there is nothing added to fill up space, just the purest goat whey and flavoring.
  • Activ Whey is a goat whey protein that comes from goats that are grassfed all the way through their lifecycle. There are zero antibiotics or hormones used on the goats or the vegetation they eat from.
  • I personally know the creator and can vouch for the legitimacy of the protein and where it is sourced from.
