Get rid of your non-stick pans!


I just bought these two stainless steel pans after reading how dangerous non-stick pans are! When you use a non-stick pan...there are tests that prove that they can release potentially cancerous particles.  I was so upset when I read this!  It says to buy your pots and pans made out of one of the following materials instead: Stainless Steel, Cast Iron, Copper and/or anodized aluminum

#betterYOUtip: I know it can be overwhelming to sit there and buy a whole new set of cookware so start small! Buy one or two of your most used pots and then slowly add to the collection! #youcandoit

I keep this bottle next to my sink to clean my fruits & vegetables.

You can also buy a bottle thats ready to go!

#betterYOUtip:  Have a bottle of white vinegar and water next to your sink to clean your fruits & vegetables! 

Directions: Put 1 part white vinegar and 3 parts water in a spray bottle next to your sink so you can easily clean your fruits & vegetables! This simple spray bottle can clean up to 98% of pesticides, bacteria & dirt that can be on your produce! I love this cause it's simple, effective and realistic to do!

Buy a steamer to steam your vegetables! 

Buy a steamer to steam your vegetables instead of boiling them!

I bought this steamer on Amazon.com for about $22.00 and I am obsessed with it! It has a section to put your vegetables in and another section to cook rice in.  The steamer keeps all the vitamins & nutrients of the vegetables.  (This is super important!)  

For all mom's out there...your kids will love how tasty the veggies come out!  I mash the vegetables with sweet potatoes (looks like mashed potatoes) and add some salt, butter and a tiny bit of olive oil.  D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!

Grow an indoor garden in your home!

 Indoor plants can cleanse your indoor air of chemicals & they can also release blood-enriching oxygen.  

A few of my favorites are the Bamboo Palm, Peace Lily (pictured above) & the English Ivy. (These three plants cleanse your air.)

The benefits of Chia Seeds

Some of the major benefits chia seeds have are: they are loaded with antioxidants, have tons of fiber, are high in quality protein, are high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, are high in many important bone nutrients and many much more! I like to add it to my protein shake, oatmeal and sometimes I mix it into my pancakes too.
