Even just a few minutes a day can make such a difference to the concentration of indoor pollutants in your home. Plus it’s just good for the soul ✨

“Only the people at the top make the money” they say. 🤔

Well let’s break this down...👇🏻👇🏻 ✅ Renee introduces it to Amanda who replaced her Corporate salary and came Home. ✅ Amanda introduces it to Andrea who more than doubled her teaching salary and came Home. ✅ Amanda introduces it to Melissa who replaced her hefty Corporate Medical Director salary and came home. ...and it keeps going... Hmm. It might just be me, but I am starting to see a trend here! The REAL question is...who is daring enough to make a change and be next?!

Yasmeen's 10 year challenge..with a twist!
.
Previously I would have generously spritzed my entire house including our bedding and sofa with Febreze or any air freshner I could get my hands on.
Over the last couple of years we've gotten wise to 'Synthetic Fragrances'.
.
These little buggers are everywhere in our houses from air freshners, scented candles, cleaning and skin care products. They smell great why would you ditch them?!
.
☠Synthetic fragrances contain skin and eye irritants, endocrine disruptors (think hormones) and mess with your respiratory system. They give rise to breathing difficulties like Asthma, skin irritations like Eczema and can trigger migraines. No thanks!☠
.
Instead grab a spray bottle, add a big pinch of sea salt/glug of witch hazel, 10-20 drops of your fave essential oil and fill with water. Shake then spray!
Make sure you choose a reliable company to buy your oils from- I use Young Living because of their integrity and purity..not only will your loo smell fab but because they're so pure youll also get the therapeutic benefit of the Essential Oils!
.
This is my bathroom spray- it contains Purification which is fab at getting rid of stinks!🙊
.
A similar one lives in our bedroom with lavender, cedarwood and tangerine for our bedding! Best sleep ever!💪

Did you know some coffee filters and tea bags are bleached and contain icky chemicals that can leach into our drinks? ☕️
.
As someone who loves coffee and tea, I must say... "HOW RUDE." 🙎
.
So how to fix that? First of all, there are some better options out there, such as using unbleached filters or tea bags, or even using reusable tea balls or coffee filter baskets (Fun fact: they even make reusable baskets for the Keurig that can be used with your own coffee! Um.. YES, please!) 💁💃👯
.
I just shared a blog the other day about how to cut down on chemicals with just 5 simple switches, and I have links to all kinds of solution goodies. Treat yourself to some eco-friendly shopping, friends. Link above, check it out! 👌

Spent today packing (and repacking) and feeling pretty freaking grateful I had the courage to just TRY. .
A year and a half ago I decided I needed to jump at this opportunity because if I didn’t I’d always wonder if I could have done it. If I could have done it well. .
Tomorrow I’m kissing my kiddos goodbye and being swept off to @thebreakers in Palm Beach by my bosses (#bestbossever) to celebrate everything we’re accomplishing together. .

Warning: I will be #overgramming but surely you understand. .

See you in the morning @bethaberry @caitlincleanbeauty @kates.clean.slate @lynnescleanbeautytribe ☀️🌴🥂👯‍♀️

Just because we're back home doesn't mean we've stopped eating #Japanese food 🤤
This was a #pepperfin tuna dish with #jalapeños and #sriracha 🌶 which I picked because @miggy84 loves HEAT 🔥 (the one thing he missed on our recent trip to #Tokyo)
The garnish is #daikon a very mild winter radish common in Asia. If you ever get to try it, DO! It's BOMB 💣
The owner also let us try this with a #ponzu sauce infused with #shiso leaf which is one of my favorites flavors. He got it from a Japanese farmer who grows and infuses her own as well as #yuzu which is a citrus fruit.
#Itadakimasu !

2018 was the year I FINALLY stuck to a New Year's Resolution! January 1st 2018 I banned three things: single use plastic bags, disposable coffee cups, and single use plastic bottles. Instead I carried a tote bag, reusable cup, and reusable bottle. Fast-forward 365 days and, whoop, success! Yes there were days I had to leave the grocery store balancing items in my hands (the horror) because my tote went awol, and days I had to sit-in for coffee because I forgot my take-away cup, and even days I went thirsty for a bit because I'd forgotten my water... But, I promised myself there would be no excuses and overall, it was super easy to do away with all the single use varieties of these items just by thinking ahead. Then, the Tupperware box joined mid-year to replace packaging when I was buying take-away food/deli items, and that was an easy switch too. All in all, some in-roads made towards a less wasteful, convenience-driven life. More this year!

Sunday brunch was soo delicious! Brown rice, baked plantains, cabbage & kale, with a creamy avocado.. I would eat this for days😋 .
Did you know that yummy plantains are a rich source of fibre, vitamins A, C, and B-6, and the minerals magnesium and potassium. .
This meal was pack with under rated nutritional power houses! .
Cabbage being one of my favourites it's an especially good source of sinigrin. Sinigrin is one of cabbage's sulfur-containing glucosinolates that has received special attention in cancer prevention research. .
The sinigrin in cabbage can be also converted into allyl-isothiocyanate, or AITC. This isothiocyanate compound has shown unique cancer preventive properties with respect to bladder cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. .
It's also worth noting that a second glucosinolate found in cabbage; glucobrassicin, can be converted into two cancer-protective compounds indole-3-carbinol (or I3C, an isothiocyanate) and diindolylmethane (or DIM). .
Little old cabbage💚💚💚

Hi 👋🏽 My name is Ericka. What’s yours??? If you can’t tell by my smile already,,, I love to have fun. Family truly is best. The most rewarding thing in life. All my life I have searched for a family. Took me a while to make mine complete but as the year sings itself to the end, I’m truly blessed as I reflect and Admire the life that Love has built, the life that God has blessed me/ Us with. I’m also in awe and admiration at myself and how much self growth I have completed for myself this year. I’ve learned to love me first and for that my whole life has changed. So this post is to remind you to not forget you in the loud noises , in the midst of it all. To remember to always shine that light back home. To shine it on you , remember you where first before it all. The rest will fall in line once you are happy in Love with you first. .

Deli meats are one of the hardest food products to find free of harmful additives. Most contain harmful preservatives, harmful antioxidants and added flavour. Flavour could be anything, including flavour enhancer Monosodium L-glutamate 621 (MSG). Let’s take a look at some of the possible side effects of just one of these additives that can be found in deli meats?
Preservatives are used to prolong the shelf life of food products, however back before cheap preservatives were added to food natural preservatives such as salt use to do this! Some of the reported side effects that can occur from preservatives, in particularly Nitrates and nitrites that are added to deli meats can include; behavioural issues, eczema, attention difficulties, headaches, rashes, irritable bowel and mood swings. There has also been studies that link the chemicals in processed meats to cancer.
Are children more likely to develop side effects to additives?
You may have noticed your children’s behaviour being affected by certain foods containing additives or you may question why additives are particularly a concern for children. Children are more likely to show side effects to additives because the amount of food and drink consumed relative to their body weight. Their tiny little bodies and organs can have difficulty processing all these chemicals found in the foods we eat today. Their tiny little bodies and organs that are still developing!
Some specialist butchers will supply chemical free deli meats or look out for great finds like Parma prosciutto which is just Pork and salt!
