"Live Green" is an element of healthy living that gets overlooked most days of the week. Pat yourself on the back if you already choose paper over plastic and a bonus to you if you bring re-usable bags over both when you go to the grocery store. You’re on your way to a greener lifestyle and I’m here to help you take it a few steps further.
There is very little said about the effects of certain products on our body. I’m talking about soaps, shampoos, laundry detergent and dryer sheets, dishwasher detergent, and even the plastic baggies and containers we store our food in. There are chemicals in these products that affect our bodies by creating inflammation and other allergic reactions. The more we use these products, the more they build up in our system and there comes a point where it’s just too much. These chemicals affect our endocrine, immune and liver systems and can lead to illnesses or chronic conditions.
The Grow in Wellness Blog will hopefully be a resource for you to help you make healthier choices at the grocery store, in household products you use and even for recipes and up to date information on these and other health and nutrition issues. It may seem like a lot to take in or do all at once, but small changes will become big changes and you will be living a healthier lifestyle in no time.
I wish all the best to you on your journey to Grow in Wellness.
