One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Weeks 2 & 3

One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Weeks 2 & 3

Cristin has been such a trooper. She has devoutly stuck to this eating plan and is gracious enough to continue to share her experience (and some cool pictures) with us! *************************** It has been a busy couple of weeks! So busy that I’ll have to share my experiences from both Weeks 2 and 3 with you in this post. As I anticipated, Week 2 proved to be a little more challenging than Week 1. I attribute it to the fact that in Week 2, the excitement and “newness” of the experience was starting to wear off and the reality that this was...

One Girl’s Journey on Whole 30 – Week 1

After suffering from fatigue for months, my close friend Cristin recently decided to start the Whole 30 diet. I’d never heard of this eating plan but am already very intrigued with it simply hearing about the changes Cristin is seeing. I also like one of their rules: “You are not allowed to step on the scale or take any body measurements for the duration of the program. This is about so much more than just weight loss, and to focus on your body composition means you’ll miss out on the most dramatic and lifelong benefits this plan has to offer. So, no...
How I’m using my Essential Oils

How I’m using my Essential Oils

  Not long ago, I decided it was time to explore the essential oil (EO) realm. It seemed like a very natural progression for me given my other interests! I have been really enjoying them and wanted to share how I’ve been using them on me and my family. After doing some research, I decided to buy the bulk of my EOs from Mountain Rose Herbs and some from Native American Nutritionals. Stretch marks. I made a salve to put on my pregnant belly. Once I hit the 20 week mark, my tummy started feeling tighter and a little uncomfortable. I use an almond carrier...
My Pregnancy Confessions

My Pregnancy Confessions

I am 15 weeks pregnant with our second child and this health nut has some not so healthy confessions!

This pregnancy has kicked my butt from week 6. I have had more fatigue and nausea than with my last and sometimes felt as if it would never end. Why do women have to endure such torture just to help carry on the human race? Why must we be punished for doing this noble deed? Those are just a couple of thoughts that have been playing in my head over the last couple of months. Of course, I’m ecstatic about carrying our child and feel blessed that I’m able. I’m sure the moment Baby Butternut arrives, I’ll have long forgotten the misery. But sometimes, when you don’t feel well, you just have to “get by.”…

The Very Common Yet Highly Under Diagnosed Genetic Condition Wreaking Havoc on Your Life

The Very Common Yet Highly Under Diagnosed Genetic Condition Wreaking Havoc on Your Life

Little Known Genetic Mutation – Causes Disease, Heartache, and Early Death We must educate the world on MTHFR mutations. Why is it that a gene, vital to so many bodily functions, that is so commonly defective, and that can come with such devastating effects is so vastly unheard of? It all started with a visit to my naturopathic physician last spring. I told her my husband and I were thinking of having another child, and I wanted to ensure my health was at an optimal level. I had a few minor complications with my first pregnancy (heart palpitations,...

Scones & Fudge (and some other dinner essentials)!

What’s Carey Cookin? Baked Whole Chicken I bought some antibiotic/hormone free chickens from Sam’s and baked them at 425 until the internal temp was around 180.  We ate the chicken plain the first night, then the rest of the week, I made different recipes from the pulled chicken.  It’s a really good, cheap, and versatile way to eat the rest of the week!   I was short on time so the only thing I did to prepare the chicken was to sprinkle homemade Emeril’s Essence on top (this stuff is amazing….I use it on everything!) Sweet Potato Fries...
