Websites and Blogs

Environmental Working Group – for a current list of the dirty dozen (foods and food additives!) and the clean fifteen (least contaminated fruits and vegetables). Also a great go to for guides to purchasing the cleanest and greenest sunscreens, cleaning products, and cosmetics. This website is an incredibly helpful tool for clean living. I don’t know what I’d do without the resources it provides. The apps are really helpful when you’re out shopping and need to make a choice.

Fooducate – Look up your favorite products, and find out their health grade.   I love this site because the food scoring takes into consideration the negative implication of questionable food additives. You don’t get an A just for showing up with the right nutritional panel. Ingredients matter.

Center for Science in the Public Interest – This site is a valuable resource. It has a fantastic list of which food additives to be most concerned about avoiding. Check out their “Summary of the Safety of All Additives”.

Food Babe – a strong, bold woman unafraid to challenge our food industry. I love her passion, message, and outspoken advocacy for us all. Let’s stop poisoning ourselves!

BNourished – a health coach with commitment, integrity, and a keen ability to lead and guide. One of her clients said this about her: “Katie is one of those five people you will surely meet in heaven.” I completely agree.

Nourishing Meals – detoxing never tasted this good.

Healthy Green Kitchen – I love how Winnie’s recipes focus on real, whole food. They taste great and don’t consistently eliminate whole food groups. For clean, wholesome, and delicious real food recipe ideas, this blog can help keep you on track once you’ve completed the 21 Day Detox.

Supplements and Products

Perfect Supplements – The owners of this company have incredible integrity. They are completely committed to using the highest quality raw materials, and to offering the cleanest, greenest, and most effective supplements. You’re in good hands, and you won’t be disappointed.

Skin Care – For the best and most effective skin creams, body wash, laundry care, and hand soap, check out these products. We use the soap nuts, stain remover, and Brightens and Whitens for our laundry, the Yore Balm for our skin, and the Yore Wash for everything else – face, hands, and body and shaving. The owner, Kim, says “Clean doesn’t have a smell.” This statement alone tells me she understands how to keep toxins away.

Tea and Mantras – Need a mantra (“I am healthy”), an on the go smoothie jar (check out the Homemade Healer line), or some fabulous tea? Visit this website for tools to make your new healthy habits stick.
