There has been a lot of negativity towards gluten-free diets lately. We have seen tons of articles on how eating gluten-free isn’t any better for our health (unless you have Celiac’s disease). While it may be true that the gluten-free products themselves aren’t necessarily healthier, there are still reasons why going gluten-free can benefit your health. Here are 5 reasons why a gluten-free diet can be healthy, that has nothing to do with gluten itself.
I recently bought 4 products from 100% Pure Cosmetics to test out. This is the second natural make-up brand I am reviewing, the first one was UltraPure Cosmetics. 100% Pure was recommended to me by a friend, and I decided to try it because it is free of all toxic chemicals found in conventional cosmetics (parabens, dyes, fragrances, etc.). The coolest part of all: 100% Pure colors their make up with fruit and vegetable pigments! Read on to learn how these products worked for me.

Some recent information has come to my attention regarding Green Pasture’s Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil. Continue reading for full details on why I will no longer be recommending this product.
I recently purchased a few basic products from UltraPure cosmetics to test them out. I chose UltaPure Cosmetics because their make up is free of toxic chemicals that are often used in conventional make up. These toxic chemicals include petrochemicals, parabens, bismuth oxychloride, talc, and dyes. The ingredients list for each of the products I purchased is very short, which is a good thing! The Environmental Working Group recommends you to choose cosmetics with a low number of ingredients, because this helps to reduce the chemical load on the body. But as great as it is to have healthy cosmetics, the point is defeated if they don’t work well! Read on to learn how these cosmetics worked for me.

While white potatoes are not necessarily unhealthy, some of us need to avoid them due to their nightshade properties, high carbohydrate content, or for other health reasons. But fear not; you can make an excellent substitute for mashed potatoes using cauliflower, and its super simple! While cauliflower may not be the most obvious potato substitute, you will be surprised what a delicious and nutritious dish you can create with them.
