Seven out of the top ten causes of death in the U.S. (cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes among others) are directly linked to our standard american diet (SAD) and our food system. The best way I can help bring people to better health is through reversal and prevention of disease through food, which is why I have partnered with a company that helps make adding whole food plant based nutrition easy and accessible.
My family loves these “farm to capsules.” The diverse rainbow of fruits, vegetables and grains in powdered form help us bridge the gap between what we do eat and what we should be eating for optimum health (9-13 servings a day, more for athletes or illness, recovery). The shakes offer much more than the typical protein shake and are low glycemic, versatile and delicious! And the Juice Plus plant based omega blend consists of omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 from fruits, algae and seed oils.
Its amazing to me to see the cellular changes manifesting into abundant health just through something so simple.
MORE THAN BEAUTY. ITS A MOVEMENT.
Like many of you, I am a wife and mom, and of course want the best for myself and my family. I was conscious about home cooking and clean eating, but was less thoughtful when it came to soaps, sunscreens and products I was using regularly.
Just like in the food industry, there is very little regulation on labeling and banning certain ingredients from skincare in the U.S. I was appalled years ago to really learn of the many toxins that are in most “natural” or “clean” products. It was complicated to find a product that was clean and it was one less thing I wanted to spend my time worrying about.
Our skin is our largest organ, and a huge source of toxins if we are not intentional about avoiding them. Environmental toxins lead to cancer, immune suppression, gut dysbiosis, among other “silent” health issues.
This is why I chose to work with Beautycounter, a company whose mission is to put safer products into the hands of everyone. Their 1500 ingredient “never list” bans toxins that are otherwise found in most skin products available to us.
