Arugula, Creamy Avocado And Massaged Kale Salad


Let me tell you a secret: I love kale. My love for kale doesn’t come from its taste, but from its benefits. Kale supplies us with powerful antioxidants, boosts in Vitamin A & C, and as much iron as a serving of beef.

I can honestly say that, as much as I wanted to meditate, I could not do it. I researched for hours and I would interrogate every person I came across who mentioned that they meditated. I would ask, “How do you sit and meditate?

Fall Treat: My Homemade Recipe for an All-Natural and Delicious Applesauce


Autumn is finally here! As much as I prefer the warmer seasons and hate the idea that we are only mere months away from the snow-covered abyss that is winter, I can’t help but have a special admiration for the Fall season. It’s sort of the fun prerequisite for the holiday season. The leaves begin to change into beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow, while covering surrounding roads. Pumpkins become everyone’s new best friend, either decorating homes or making a tasty appearance in an overabundance of autumnal-themed drinks at local coffee shops. Plus, let’s not forget all the delicious pies.

Gentle Parenting


Babies have brand new bodies, which means they are super sensitive to picking up all sorts of nasties. Although it’s tempting to reach for the chemical-laden ointments and medicines, many natural care methods are just as effective and 100% safe. Some complaints may require a doctor’s visit or more extensive treatment, but the most common are harmless and treatable with a little natural TLC.
