Lemonheads candy. Tart and yummy, unfortunately not a substitute for actual lemons. That’s why when life hands me (organic) lemons I juice them and make ice cubes, then add a few to my water to reap all kinds of health benefits (no pucker face necessary).

Confession: this is the most fun I’ve had brainstorming a post title. Sadly, it’s not clickbait, there’s nothing sensational about the title. A lot of yummy store-bought carbs (purposely) contain an additive sourced from human hair, animal feathers, hog bristles, or occasionally cow horns. It’s called L-cysteine. Continue reading

This post isn’t actually about making shampoo. That sounds like a lotta work. No, it’s about a much lazier way I’ve been cleaning my hair lately. Four weeks actually. And guess what? It’s been interesting.
The method: Baking soda followed by an apple cider vinegar rinse aka the no ‘poo method. As in no shampoo.
I shake a bit of baking soda onto a little Tupperware I keep in the shower and mix it with a few ounces. It’s weird and slippery in the hair, no lather, a real change up from the average tested-on-animals cancer-in-a-bottle shampoos I’ve always used.

Unfiltered apple cider vinegar is a super substance, a true health tonic made from apples and yeast to produce a fermented concoction that does a variety of wonders for our health. In addition to its beneficial enzyme and probiotic content, the process yields acetic acid, a healthy acid that has an alkaline effect.
Back pocket fact: Vinegar means “sour wine” in French. Pretty neat huh? Moving on… Continue reading
The body is made up of the nervous, skeletal and muscular systems; together they create the kinetic chain. These systems work together to produce movement. If one system is not working properly, there will be dysfunction in your biomechanics – Eric Taylor (active.com)
