TV Tuesday #40 – How To Naturally Heal Dry Cracked Hands

 

I know some of you will think this upcoming episode to be a little silly, but what can I say… it works! This hand moisturizing technique does involve a pair of socks, but you’ll just have to trust me.

Like the oil pulling episode we did, you might feel a little weird while you’re doing it, but it works. And after all, isn’t that the point, solutions that work?

This little trick is one we keep coming back to when our hands are a little worse for wear. For those that love to ski, hands gets tend to get chapped from being in the cold and wet weather, than they crack and can even bleed. This strange little trick this works. Do it a few times over a period of a few days and your hands will start to look and feel better and heal naturally.

TV Tuesday #15: Unbelievable Healthy Almond Butter Banana Fudge

I like to keep a healthier treat at home for those times when all I crave is a major kick to the face with sugar. Often I get cravings for a small bite of chocolate or something sweet. A weakness of mine is ice cream (a reason why I never have any in the house).

I also think it is CRUCIAL to have a small little treat around if you’re making your way over to a whole foods diet – especially in the beginning stages. When processed foods get kicked to the curb in favor of whole natural foods, the outcome is a huge reduction of sugar and salt. These 2 key ingredients trick us into thinking these foods taste good. So as you eliminate processed foods you’ll no doubt be craving sugar and salt in a way you haven’t before because they were previously hiding in everything processed that was being consumed.

TV Tuesdays – Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Giveaway Winner


We are so excited to announce the winner of our Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Giveaway.

If you’re familiar with Tropical Traditions then you know how awesome this company is. If you’re not, let me tell you a few really cool things about this company. Though they carry lots of different products, one really great thing about their gold label coconut oil is that, because it is hand made (thousands of gallons made by hand!), they employ hundreds of people in their rural farming communities. For me that’s the coolest part. It would have been easier for them to ship their coconuts to a plant and create an expeller pressed coconut oil that is really popular in North America (and they do), but they chose to keep the integrity of their most prized product and as a result created jobs and a prosperous community. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT!
