When I received a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s in 2015 I began to research as much as possible to learn everything that I could about this condition. With this post I want to share with you […]

I have been on a bit of a hiatus due to work, family, and life in general. Thankfully, the school year is coming to an end. I am excited to finally wrap up my school psychology job and get back to writing. A topic that I have been wanting to write about is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I haven’t written about this in the past because it’s such an elusive condition. I say elusive because there are so many different viewpoints about […]

Wouldn’t it be amazing to find a fresh, simple, natural deodorant that actually works? Luckily, after a thorough and sometimes stinky search, I found the perfect natural deodorant: Native Deodorant. Before finding Native I purchased tons of other brands and ALL of them were a total bust. Some were sticky, some were chalky and left residue on my clothing (even after washing them), some had weird scents that gave me a headache, and worst of all most of them left […]

Healthy Shamrock Protein Shake Recipe

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve been hearing about the famous Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s. It’s a tradition of many to roll through the drive-thru and enjoy a Shamrock Shake this time of year.

Guest Post: Choose a Mentor, Change Your Life

Guest Post by Timea Carlo from The Healthy and Happy Community Have you ever heard the saying β€œEvery great achiever is inspired by a great mentor”? Sounds good, right? But often we think of having a mentor as some sort of luxury, something only a privileged few are entitled to have.

It contains no gluten, no processed sugars, no salt, and no artificial preservatives or artificial colors. Yay! I am all about […]

Perfect Gluten-Free Italian Meatballs

There are many gluten and dairy-free meatball recipes out there, but most are made without a panade (a mixture […]
