Choosing the Right #GlutenFree Tortillas


It’s getting so much easier to find gluten free products these days. What once was a specialty to be found only at health food stores, is now easily purchased at your local grocery store, Wal-Mart, and Target. However, it’s still important to keep reading your labels to be certain you are not buying into the gimmick some companies think they can use to fool us. Continue reading

Caveman Coffee & MCT Oil


Caveman Coffee offers high quality, fair-trade, sustainably sourced, small batch, single origin, roasted, whole bean coffee (catch all that?), among other great products. I was able to try their light, medium and dark roast coffee blends, as well as their own label MCT coconut oil. With a whole variety of coffee blends, nitro cold brews, whole leaf teas, and k-cup pods, there is a product for everyone at Caveman Coffee. Here is my take on the paleo themed hip local coffee roasters. Continue reading

Premium Eco-Friendly Yoga Products from #Aurorae


There is no other practice like yoga. It is a full body workout that blends together aspects of the mind, the body, and the soul, to bring us peace and relaxation. It’s also a fantastic way to build balance and strength throughout the body. One of the bigger things that sets yoga apart from other types of exercises is how it teaches you to breathe properly. Most humans do not breathe the proper way, so we end up inhibiting our body’s natural ability to release stress and maintain clear focus. Since yoga has been popular for many years now (on top of the fact it has ancient roots), more people have welcomed it into their lives, thereby increasing their breathing focus, meditation skills, and flexibility.

Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator Review #NeilMed #MomsMeet


I’ve been in the “natural world” for many years now. During this time, I’ve been surrounded by the types of products those who live a clean, more natural, and healthier lifestyle tend to use. Even though I am familiar with most of the natural health products out there, there are still many I need to try. Now, I can cross one more natural healing remedy off my list. The neti-pot. I can officially say I have tried the neti-pot for optimal nasal health and cleanliness. Thanks to GreenMomsMeet, I was introduced to Neil-Med, and I had the chance to try their nasal rinse and infant aspirator in addition to the neti-pot. I was impressed with all of these products. Here Continue reading

Piggy Paints Non-Toxic Nail Polish Review


Fabulous as they are, most nail polishes are made of a long list of hard to pronounce chemicals. The list tends to get even nastier when you add special features like “quick dry”, “long lasting”, and “special effects”. Going natural with nail polish is something a lot of women struggle with. They may think the natural ones won’t function the same as the conventional ones they are used to. Maybe they think it’s not worth the extra price. It’s important to embrace the change as we continue to live a natural, healthier lifestyle, eliminating all the yucky stuff from our world. Natural nail polish does exist, and many of them perform quite well. Here is the review of just one great natural nail polish brand. Piggy Paint.

A Few Natural Deodorant Options


If you grew up using the deodorant from the shelves of most major stores, you may have had to “make the switch” when you decided to live a healthier, more natural lifestyle. This switch can be tricky, wet, smelly, and difficult when it comes to finding a healthy alternative to the more common aluminum deodorant. With so many options, it could be quite a while before you finally find one you like. I’ve compiled a list of the best natural deodorants that Continue reading

DAB Herb Makeup Review


Cosmetics and hair products are some of the last things on my list to convert to the healthier green side. While I have tried many natural versions, nothing was leaving me feeling as comfortable as the conventional chemical stuff was. Of course, I was not OK with this, so I finally made efforts this year to fully commit. It was a lot easier after I discovered mineral makeup as an all natural, full coverage foundation. Eventually, I was left with the very last harsh cosmetic to rid from my beauty bag… mascara. Continue reading
