I have never been one to love on non toxic products. I mean, to be honest, I thought people were a bit over the top. What's the diff?If the chemicals and bleach were good enough for my parents, they must be good enough for me.
The more I started hearing about it recently, the more I checked it out. I tried some hand soap and kitchen cleaner,just to see...and I was BLOWN AWAY. The light citrus smell vs the bleach was an instant win for me. The fact that they cleaned the same as or even better also blew me away... so maybe people knew what they were talking about?
I started dabbling and fell in love! I even started telling friends about them. I am also a very thrifty mama,so I wanted to use up what we had at home. Going back to bleach smell was a big eye opener. It took my breath away the first time I used it-how did I not notice it all those times? Now, my body is sensitive to the smells, so it is an instant trigger.
Glad I made a choice to do better for my family and me. It is never too late to start over!! When you know more, you do more.
I gave up carbs for a few years.. yes, like good ol delicious pasta, rice and bread.. No, I didn't get hard core and give up the carbs in other food like fruit, etc.. Who has time for counting all that stuff? I don't:)
I used to drink shakes,too..like JUST shakes.. maybe a snack and then dinner.. I mean, who has time to give up all the food?I guess I thought it was smart...ummmm.....
Fast forward to July where I started learning more about being healthy and eating well vs not eating. Someone told me carbs are actually GOOD for my body-I about laughed in her face..until I understood that they really are energy for the body!!
I also learned the difference between "good" carbs and carbs like the pic above...yea, french fries, white pasta and chips don't quite fit in the "good" carbs category. I started eating wheat bread and veggie pasta and was S O happy and stopped drinking shakes and GASP, I started losing inches like never before!!
Let's be real, though, sometimes, we want to eat crap. I had a TO DIE FOR gyro last night (I mean, it had onions and tomatoes on it, so that is healthy, right?!) and french fries... I didn't die , didn't gain weight and won't do it again for a few months. I am not indulging in any of the above snacks today-don't even know who is playing in the SB, to be honest!!
HOWEVER, if you are or if you like pizza , fries or other carbs once in a while, I have your back. Comment below with your best recipe or GIF of a yummy Super Bowl treat! I will enter ya into a giveaway for some goodness that will keep you covered!!
Remember, life is about moderation and enjoying food!!
