Most salad dressings are absolutely LOADED with unhealthy ingredients like sugar, vegetable oils (which cause chronic inflammation), and artificial sweeteners and flavors. Which is super ironic considering we typically eat salad to be healthy and get some veggies in!

My friend Hannah from Healthfully Hannah wrote this fantastic post breaking down the unhealthy ingredients typically found in salad dressings + she gives us an easy formula to make delicious, healthy dressings!
Salad Dressing: it’s probably the last thing you’d suspect to have all sorts of nasty ingredients in it. I mean after all, it’s just salad dressing. If this is what you’re thinking, then keep reading! While it doesn’t really seem like it at first, salad dressing is actually a processed food-like product. If you’re going to be eating a bowl...

Dry body brushing aids detoxification by stimulating lymphatic flow. Plus it's so simple and gives you smooth, glowing skin! Win win win :)
The benefits of dry body brushing are vast. It helps eliminate toxins and stimulates the lymphatic system. It also helps tighten skin and reduce cellulite.

The beauty industry is downright ugly. It's almost completely unregulated, and companies are able to use just about any chemical ingredient they wish, and don't even need to disclose them all to us! This is extremely concerning given the fact that a number of commonly used chemicals have been linked to hormone disruption, DNA damage, and even cancer.

How is it that the industry is so broken? And how can we protect ourselves with natural, nontoxic skincare and beauty products?
So you need a new mascara… You run to the local drugstore or big cosmetics store or department store beauty counter. You look for the product that will work the best because, well, no one wants mascara flaked under her eyes by noon! But most of us don’t ever consider the ingredients in our cosmetic products. I for one always thought that...

Coconut milk is SO easy to make at home and absolutely delicious!

Plus, no nasty additives like carrageenan or unhealthy packaging like BPA-lined cans or cartons.
Coconut milk is an absolutely deee-licious non-dairy alternative. It’s a staple in my kitchen, where I primary use it for chia pudding. Which I’m very into. Yes, I make so much chia pudding that I consider coconut milk a staple. Unfortunately, most store-bought coconut milks are filled with some questionable additives. One of the most offensive: carrageenan. A Little Reminder About...

These homemade and healthy chocolate-covered snowballs (a.k.a. no-bake coconut macaroons) are SO YUMMY! No refined sugar or artificial ingredients.
Since it’s been in the 60s all December… It’s not looking like we’ll be getting a white Christmas. Now since I live in Philadelphia and not Atlanta, this is not normal. It’s been weird to go to tree lightings without a jacket and holiday parties where we spend more time out on the patio instead of near the fireplace. I...

Nothing says "It's the holidays!" quite like a hot pie, fresh from the oven. Mmmmm!! But I've had a real struggle making a gluten-free pie crust... until now.

Just in time for the holidays!
Nothing says “It’s The Holiday Season!” quite like a hot pie, fresh from the oven. (Except maybe Mariah. OK, definitely Mariah.) But gluten-free baking sometimes doesn’t get the message across quite as clearly… I’ve really struggled with gluten-free baking. Like pulled-my-hair-out, broken-dishes, been-pushed-to-the-point-of-considering-anger-management struggled. I’ve tried mixing SO MANY different types of gluten-free flours and with varied succ...

Making your own homemade all-natural cleaning products count NOT be any easier... all you need are these 6 simple ingredients and you're good to go!

Check out how to make DIY All-Purpose Cleaner, DIY Scoring Powder, DIY Laundry Powder, DIY Dishwashing Liquid, DIY Dishwasher Powder, and DIY Glass Cleaner all with these 6 simple ingredients.
It’s ironic that home cleaning products are often a major source of indoor air pollution. After all, we buy them with the intention of making our homes healthier, safer places — not chemical dumping grounds! But many of the chemicals found in conventional cleaning products have health implications ranging from headaches and skin sensitivity to endocrine disruption and increased risk of...

Fiber doesn't exactly have the best street cred... most of us think of cardboard-like food-like "health" products or going to the bathroom more regularly when they think of fiber. Not exactly the most exciting or glamorous associations!

But did you know that fiber is a critical part of your body's detox system? Or could help balance hormones? Or decrease blood sugar levels and inflammation!? Yes, fiber is way more bada** than we give it credit for!

Check out these 5 critical health benefits of fiber.
When you think of dietary fiber… I bet you think of two things: #1: processed diet and “health” food products like breakfast bars and cereals that scream “LOADED WITH FIBER” on the box (and typically aren’t very tasty) #2: yes, just that — a satisfying, solid, dependable number #2 And while fiber certainly does keep us regular and feeling full (which is why it’s...

This DIY all-natural spiced cookie lip scrub would make the perfect last-minute holiday gift!! It's just a few simple ingredients and super easy to whip up in a couple minutes. Wrap it with a cute ribbon and you're done!
Have I got the perfect last minute holiday present for all of you procrastinators… DIY all-natural spiced cookie lip scrub. Mmmm, right!? This seriously takes 2 minutes to make and is sure to please its recipient. After all, the winter air (let’s pretend for a second that we’re NOT currently experiencing a heatwave in December) can be really drying, and no...

This homemade and healthy coconut milk eggnog is SO delicious and will surely get you in the holiday spirit!
As we were doing our holiday decorating last week, I got a crazy craving for eggnog. The “OMG I NEED IT NOW OR I’M GOING TO LOSE MY SH*T” type of craving. You know you have them, too. Usually these can be blamed on blood sugar imbalances, but the snow globes and holiday tunes were totally to blame for this one....

Wanna know what I hate? ZITS!! I know you feel me. The worst... Luckily thanks to a nutrient-dense diet, much needed gut healing, and my natural skincare routine I don't deal with them nearly as often as I once did. But they still pop up now and again, and for those times I need to be prepared! I made this DIY all-natural herbal spot treatment recently and it's a fast-acting zit zapper.
Nothing ruins a perfectly good morning like noticing that a zit has made a home of your face overnight. Ugh. Go Away! Now while I’ve been able to eliminate 99% of my adult-acne with a properly balanced diet (including a lot of necessary gut healing) and my natural skincare routine, I still get the occasional blemish (typically right before my period). Such...

This homemade and healthy banana pancake recipe is a super simple and healthier version of a breakfast classic. Best yet, just 2 ingredients required!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. But honestly, my breakfast has a tendency to get pretty boring. If you’re like me, you’re rushing to get out the door in the morning and don’t give breakfast much attention. So usually (namely Monday through Friday), my breakfast consists of a couple soft-boiled eggs and whatever veggie I happen to have in the fridge....
