Glyphosate! Bromine! Allergies! Intolerance! Weight gain! Candida! Diabetes! Heart disease!
We’ve all heard the bad press surrounding refined grains.
But how do we remove this much-loved staple from our diet?
Does this meal plan sound familiar at all?
Breakfast: toast, or a pancake, or cereal, or a muffin
→ all refined grain! :o
Lunch: sandwich, a cookie
→ refined grain!! :o
Dinner: pasta, buns, pizza, a pie
→ again, refined grain!!! :o
What would we even replace all these items with??
Here are a few ideas to start with:
Breakfast: a high protein, healthy fat green smoothie, or eggs & veggies & beans, or oatmeal with seeds & nuts
Lunch: a salad containing a healthy protein & fat source
Dinner: divide your plate with majority veggies (not potatoes), a whole grain, and a good protein source, using healthy oils for cooking
Healthy snack options: fruit, hummus & veggies, dried fruit-nut-seed mix, whole grain homemade granola bars
Remember that refined grain and sugars are addictive so be ready for intense cravings and even withdrawal symptoms when you cut them out!
I’ll do it with you! ☺

Would you believe me if I told you that these two shiny-haired boys are totally lotion and potion free? They don't use shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotions, gels, nothing! (With the odd exception of course.)
Well, our bodies are WAY more amazing than we often give them credit for! The skin is an UNBELIEVABLE organ - and our largest organ! It is our first line immune defence and part of that help comes from the wide variety and HUGE amount of microbiota that live on our skin.
**Healthy skin is capable of smelling nice despite sweat, abating infections when we skin our knee, regulating our temperature and can produce just the right amount of oils according to our environment.
In other words, our skin (and hair) are largely able to take care of themselves! That is - if we stop messing with them! And since they are living and breathing and absorb so much of what we slather onto them, it just makes more sense to leave them alone! Why mess with a perfected system, right?
