Tips for Nutritional Health!

This year I have had a bit of a crash course in nutritional health. I always thought I was a pretty healthy eater, but this year I have discovered much about health and the American diet that is very startling and frustrating. I am thankful for a mother who is highly interested in health and has done hours upon hours of research and passed along her findings to me. Our window sills are lined with wheat grass, and our fridge is full of raw goat milk kefir, and tons of raw vegetables. We drink a vegetable juice mixture every day that I call dinosaur pee, and we have been called health nuts, hippies, and a variety of other names recently. HOWEVER, I am thankful to be learning now how to make tasty nutritious meals, and how to shop and live in a way that honors and protects the body that God has entrusted to me.

Today I wanted to share some quick, easy, and extremely helpful tips with all of you...

Thousands of diets exist out there and everyone has their own idea of what is a healthy way to eat, and the truth is there really is not one perfect diet. Each person has a unique body and needs a different variety of foods in order to reach optimal health. Dr. Mercola is a highly respected doctor and nutritionalist who has created a test that can help yo
u discover what you should be eating and when you should be eating it in order to maintain GREAT health. I HIGHLY recommend checking it out here...

It will take about 10 minutes of your time and will be totally worth it. You can also subscribe to Dr. Mercola's free e-newsletter that is chock full of helpful hints, warnings, and information you won't hear in mainstream news. Sign up here

My brother would probably call me a health nazi right now and I try not to push my health concerns on others but I care about my friends and family and want to see you all healthy!

Here is a new tasty breakfast recipe I tried this morning with my newfound love...QUINOA. It is the healthiest grain out there and full of protein. Give it a try..


  1. Love this! And love you and your mom for making me think more carefully about the foods I put into my body. Great post!

  2. I checked out the information! Very helpful. Not sure how much I could implement now but good to know for later in life. It is different living with a host family, but I love it all the same.

  3. I love quinoa too! That recipe looks delish- may have to try!
