Our Healthy Lifestyle Transformation Family Progress

Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Food, Fun With Kids, Mom Life

We are just about two months into this healthy lifestyle transformation. Boy is it a process, but anything good takes a little work right?! You can read about the full story of why we started this journey here, but in a nutshell, it was just flat out needed. I felt blah, I turned to fast food more often than I care to admit and was just overwhelmed with not taking better of myself. This of course overflowed onto my family and something had to be done. I didn’t want to start a fad diet just to revert or go half in, so I went ALL in. We are talking food, beauty, clothing and home products. I know you’re probably thinking that’s overkill, but initially I started with food and thought, “what’s the point of eating better if other things I use are yuck?!” So, here’s a little update of where we are at and a few favorites I’ve found so far along the way.

Transforming Your Home Cleaning Products To Be All Natural With Mrs. Meyer’s

Best Healthy Life, Mom Life

As we’ve been working towards better health as a family, one thing that needed major work was our home products. I did a complete overhaul to all natural safe cleaning products with Mrs. Meyer’s for a price you won’t believe. It felt so good to toss the old laundry and cleaning items that just don’t fit the bill of kid-friendly things I want to have in my home. If you’re like me and have sticky little hands roaming around, a few loads of laundry to tackle each day or a stack of never ending dirty dishes, at least these products will take your mind off the safe-for-your-family aspect as you work through your to-do list (maybe–on a good day). While you’re working on said list, Grove Collaborative is working on getting your shipment right to you in an eco-friendly way.

Organic Bath and Body Goods By Grown Alchemist

Beauty, Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Mom Life

Where to begin when there is so much I want to say. As we’ve embarked on this journey to remove a lot of items off our bathroom shelves that have one too many syllables that are hard to pronounce, I am loving what I’m learning. I’ve always been aware of the benefits of eating organic foods, but never gave much thought to bath and body products. It should make sense though that what you put in your body is equally important as what you put on it. There are no question marks with Grown Alchemist¬†organic botanical beauty products and I’ll share why.

Best Chunky Guacamole Recipe

Best Healthy Life, Food

If ever there were something that I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner AND it would be deemed acceptable, it’s this recipe right here–chunky guacamole. It breaks the mold of a traditional guacamole to add a little oomph in it’s appearance and taste. Because it is so light and refreshing, I wasn’t joking about the eating all day part–you’ll see why when you make it. My kids love it, it disappears at parties and makes your tummy thank you.
