Why You Might Be Eating Metal And What To Do About It

The NYTimes recently published a very interesting story on lipsticks – and by interesting I mean I’m thanking my lucky stars that I usually opt for Blistex instead of a color product. We’ve long heard that some lipsticks have lead in them – lead has been associated with a slew of ailments including infertility, learning and behavior disorders, seizures, and even death, and that’s exactly why it’s been banned from products we’re exposed to everyday like paint.

I’ve been pretty obsessed with probiotics lately (who doesn’t want a healthy gut??!), and have been eating a ton of Greek non-fat yogurt, but when I’m looking for something a little bit better at soothing my sweet cravings, I reach for Noosa.

My friend sent me this article from the WSJ last week – who knew there was such a thing as National Ice Tea Month?? Any excuse to talk about the benefits of tea I’ll take it! I drink it pretty much every day and it works wonders on not only your skin, but your stress levels and countless studies have shown that the polyphenols derived from tea can help ward off several chronic diseases.

Beauty Food: Greek and Icelandic Yogurt

I try not to eat too much dairy because I have a hard time digesting it, but one thing I’m trying to keep in my diet is Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt’s protein content is usually double that of regular yogurt and it’s rich in probiotics, friendly bacteria that lives in our intestines.

Hemp: Why You Should Be Eating and Wearing It

Soooo….apparently last week was Hemp History Week. Who knew? Thanks to Whole Foods for the alert! Whole Foods in fact carries a ton of hemp products – like literally, a ton – hemp milk, cereals, granola, waffles, protein powders, nutrition bars, breads, snacks, chips, pastas, flour, vegetarian burgers, and a large variety of personal care […]
