Health and Wellness: Learn to Live a Vibrant Life |

There is so much that goes into health and wellness. It’s everything from our food to our activities to our mental health. I think that living a real food lifestyle is much more than just eating real food. It’s about learning to treat our bodies with kindness and respect and finding ways to make our lives simpler, less stressful, and happier! It’s time for ALL of us to learn to live a vibrant life!

DIY Non-Toxic Recipes

Part of living a healthier life is to reduce our reliance on man-made toxins and chemicals. Taking baby steps to rid our bodies and homes of toxins is a great way to improve our health. There are also countless natural remedies out there for natural living. I share a variety of posts about these subjects below.

Food News and Politics

Food freedom is important and it’s an area that is garnering much concern as the government continues to remove our freedom of choice. Food politics covers a wide range of topics ranging from GMOs and labeling to raw milk raids to FDA restriction of supplements and other foods. It is up to us to make our voices heard and stand up for our freedom to choose what goes in our bodies.

Archived Series

These are oldies, but goodies. I used to run a few regular series on my site. There is still a lot of good information in those series, but rather than list each individual article, I am going to direct you to the archive of them and you can check them all out!

Fun Video Fridays: This series was focused on finding fun videos from around the Web that dealt with real food, food politics, homesteading, gardening, or other fun videos that I just couldn’t help sharing!

Infographic Sundays: This series featured a new infographic each Sunday focusing on some aspect of food, food prep, health and wellness, various “fad diets”, etc. I love infographics and feel you can pack a lot of great info in a simple format. Lots of fun stuff in here!

Traditional Tuesdays: This series is still on-going. Each week, bloggers and readers stop by to share their favorite recipes, tips and tricks, health articles, DIY tutorials, and more. This is a great way to get new inspiration for your kitchen and home!
