1. White Oak Pastures Farm
If you’re a regular follower or subscriber to my email list, I’m sure by now you’ve come to understand the critically important impact the quality AND SOURCE of your food choices. What you put both on and in your body directly determines how your body functions, if it functions well, and how you think and look.
That’s why we must always consider not only what we eat but also the source of our food.
Where our food was from, how it was grown or raised, what it was fed/fertilized and how it was processed and delivered to us are the key factors that determine if we are just wasting our money or making a smart investment. These things matter and will determine if we get the results we are looking for by consuming them.
It’s not just as easy as running into CVS or BJ’s Wholesale and grabbing some frozen meats or a bottle of vitamins and expecting to feel like a Rock Star: source and quality are paramount to results!
That’s why I’m thrilled to share with you my newest resource: White Oak Pastures.
White Oak Pastures is a sixth generation farm in Bluffton, Georgia that is Radically Traditional Farming and committed to raising pasture-raised meats & poultry (which is the way animals SHOULD BE RAISED). Their animals are no antibiotics. No steroids.
They also care about the planet and the earth and farm using regenerative means and humane animal management practices. This is no easy task, but it is their passion (mine too!)
You can order all their products conveniently online and they ship right to your door. I got my first batch a few months ago and swear I had the best tasting steak of my life!!!
Better for me and my body, better for the animals, better for the planet – please try them and let me know what you think!
2. Gut and Psychology Syndrome: Natural Treatment for Autism, ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression, Schizophrenia by Natasha Campbell-McBride (2004)
This is a timeless and classic book with a wealth of great information for anyone who struggles with emotional issues, mood problems, brain function challenges or digestive/gut issues.
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride set up The Cambridge Nutrition Clinic in 1998. As a parent of a child diagnosed with learning disabilities, she was acutely aware of the difficulties facing other parents like her, and she has devoted much of her time to helping these families. She realized that nutrition played a critical role in helping children and adults to overcome their disabilities, and has pioneered the use of probiotics in this field.
Her willingness to share her knowledge has resulted in her contributing to many publications, as well as presenting at numerous seminars and conferences on the subjects of learning disabilities and digestive disorders. Her book Gut and Psychology Syndrome captures her experience and knowledge, incorporating her most recent work. She believes that the link between learning disabilities, the food and drink that we take, and the condition of our digestive system is absolute, and the results of her work have supported her position on this subject. Her deep understanding of the challenges they face puts her advice in a class of its own.
3. Young Living USB Essential Oil Diffuser Plug In
I love this so much!
This is a great little find that I plug into my computer while at work to diffuse some nice and relaxing essential oils during my day to help balance and calm me.
All you do is put some of your favorite oils inside and plug it in to a USB port and VIOLA! 🙂
You can use it with your laptop, your car, your office, or bring it along when you travel. It’s mobile, compact and silent with 10 second, 30 second, or 60 second diffusion interval settings. This diffuser functions as an air purifier and aroma diffuser in one simple-to-use product. Its atomizing technology transforms essential oils into a vapor of millions of microparticles, dispersing into the air the powerful plant constituents found in Young Living essential oils.
Makes a great gift too!!
