“A Wake-Up Story”
I’ve gone from typical consumer to natural mama extraordinaire. And looking back over the past five years, the changes we made didn’t happen overnight. It was a long process, but one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done!
You’re probably reading my blog because you’re looking for a few changes yourself. No problem. I have a simple 101-step process to becoming a happier, healthier, planet saving super-being! Hah! There’s no check-list 😉
*Gasp* Where to start?
I’ll take you back to my first eye opener: A Wake-Up Story from Healthy Child Healthy World.
I saw this video before I was pregnant, and it is the baby step I needed to spark a passion of a natural lifestyle.
The changes we made didn’t happen overnight. And when we ventured down this path, I never dreamed I’d be where I am today, sharing my journey with you!
But if there is one thing I’d like to share, it’s don’t be afraid to start. Small, teeny changes all make a difference. Take a few baby steps, and before you know it, you’ll have walked a mile 😉
Curious how far we’ve come?
|Frequent restaurant goers (ignorant to quinoa and kale)||Cook at home nightly, often with with fresh garlic and butter from grass-fed cows|
|Fans of Scrubbing Bubbles & 409||Clean nearly exclusively with vinegar, water and baking soda|
|Bought Yoplait yogurts 20 at a time to get $0.37 sale price||Buy plain yogurt from a farm and sweeten with fruit and maple syrup|
|Recycled, usually, but mostly when it was convenient||Recycle 4 times than the amount of trash be produce (and ONE bag of trash on Christmas!)|
|Microwaved plastic — eek!||Use only glass in the microwave (but our microwave mostly just used as a bread box)|
|Frebrezed our house to “freshen”||Open windows for fresh air and diffuse essential oils|
A small start anywhere, is a start somewhere.
