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.

Do you ever think about how you eat? Really, think about it. Do you grab just anything on the way to work and eat it in the car? Do you try to eat while checking emails or working? I know I did for years, and even find myself slipping back into the habit every now and...

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?

For those of you who don't know, beans (a primary source of protein for vegans)...

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.

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.

1. Potatoes

A food that has been used for over 5,000 years and by Hipprocrates himself? I'm in.

Vinegar, which means "sour wine" in French, can be made from virtually any carbohydrate that can be fermented. Some favorites are grapes, dates, coconut, potatoes, beets, and apples. Lat...

All that we consider today as nutrition is really just a secondary source of energy. 

Think back to a time when you were passionately in love. Maybe the first time you saw your son or daughter. The first date with your soul mate. Everything was exciting. Colors were mor...

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.
