It looks delicious, I know. It IS! And if this beautiful wheat was grown in another country, I would probably be more down with eating it on the daily, like I did when I studied abroad in Italy. No bloating, no weight gain, no digestive issues. Why? Let's take a look.

My little dude was eating a sweet soft plum for dessert last night (he waited all season!) and asked me if it was "the healthiest plum in the whole entire world" because, ya know, 5 year olds ask questions like that. I started to tell him about the wondrous Umeboshi Pl...

Ok, so this is not a photo of a human brain, but look how gorgeous it is?! I had to use. Our brains are a gross shade of taupe and not eye candy at all. These microscopic under the sea organisms are. 


I'm not sure you have seen the array of nutrition articles out...

To master something is to gain control of; to overcome. Our gut microbiome is made up of all different microbes, bacteria, viruses, fungi, archaea, and protista – all small but mighty. We’ve known that there’s bacteria in and on the body since around 1670 when Antonie...

Resistant starch - what is it and why is it important to know? It's significant because it's starch that doesn't get metabolized and therefore doesn't get stored as fat! Interested now?

But first...coffee. You've read the shirts, seen the mugs and probably often felt like this yourself. I currently am sitting outside early on a steamy morning with a cup of organic dark roast. 

So what is the deal with coffee? Is it totally toxic like some experts say?...

Most American's have heard by now to take a probiotic daily. We are concerned about gut health and the good bacteria overpopulating the bad bacteria in our digestive tract. If you have already added a clinically tested supplement to your daily regime, thumbs up. But wh...

Let me ask you a question…when was the last time you felt stressed out? From everyday annoyances to major catastrophes, stress is something that – whether we like it or not – affects us all. Stress is a major factor behind just about any health issue.

Gut-Health. It's among the new topics of the nutrition world, and for once for very good reason. It's not in fact a new buzzword or trend - it's ancient history making it's way back into our modern world and for that I am praising the Lord. Hippocrates said somewhere a...

Who Should Avoid and Why

Ok let's start with something easy. What ARE the nightshade vegetables? The term 'nightshade' tells us these particular plants prefer to grow in shady areas, and some flower at night. A quick list to start.

Green Mama Mission

We are a tribe of moms who want the safest home for our children, both inside and outside our actual house. We band together to share info about health, fitness, holistic wellness & more, not just with other moms, but everyone we know. When we feel good, we want to share why and how! 

 

We want to make it through this sometimes messy, but beautiful road of motherhood armed with the best information we have to make the best decisions we can, daily, for ourselves and our precious family.

 

We are the glue that keeps our family together. And we'd prefer that glue to be non-toxic.
