Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 31, 2018 12:00 pm

So, we know that greens are good for us and why; but what makes the sunny side of the fruit bowl so nutritious?  

How uplifting are these beautiful colors?
Sunny and Scrumptious!

So much of our favorite fresh, delicious produce comes in the glorious colors of the sunrise and sunset.  From the cheery, zingy looks of citrus and the warm hue of mango and peaches, to the rich autumnal glow of squash and bright buttery corn — it all looks and tastes great!  

What’s in Them?

So what exactly is packed into these brilliantly-colored foods that makes them so good for us?  

  • Lycopene
  • Flavonoids
  • Vitamin C

And here are just a few of the amazing benefits that they

Eat the Rainbow Part I : Gorgeous Greens!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 29, 2018 7:00 am

 
Even if we struggle to stick to it all the time, most of us have a pretty good idea how to eat healthily.  Fruit, vegetables = good. Too much sugar, salt and fat = bad. Yep. We can remember that.  

Eating your greens really is good for you.
Green is Good!

But when you’re choosing what to buy at the grocery store, bear in mind that fresh produce in different colors doesn’t just look good in the fruit bowl – it’s great for your health as well!

We take a look at why we tell our kids to eat their greens and why our parents and their parents before them, told us the same thing!

Why Is No-Poo a No-Go?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 3, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re often in favor of ditching the chemicals and trying out a natural alternative.  Dropping the foaming agent SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and potentially dangerous parabens in regular shampoo might be worth a try, but what do you replace them with?  

Is your shampoo good for you?
Co-Wash For Curlies

Some people go down the co-washing route; skipping the shampoo altogether and washing their hair using conditioner.  It can have spectacular results on certain hair types (curlies blessed with coarse, thick hair often love it), but it’s definitely not for everyone.

Soda and Silicones

So how about washing your hair with baking soda?  It’s not exactly new…your grandmother might well have tried it!  The

We all know that we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy.  Although most types of frozen, canned and dried produce count towards your daily total, nothing beats the taste of fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies.

How clean are your vegetables?
What’s On Our Veggies?  

But have you wondered about how those lovely tomatoes, salad leaves and bell peppers are produced?  If you buy organic or grow your own, then you can skip this. However, if – like so many of us – you tend to grab what’s on offer or looks great in the store display or farmer’s market, then read on.  

Did you know that much of the deliciously tempting produce on offer

In a recent blog, we looked at the dangers of using chemical cleaners around the home and how Turbo water from your water ionizer can do the job just as well, without any toxic fumes.  

Yep. It’s that time of year again.
What Kind of Spring-Cleaner Are You?  

Many people like to carry out a spring clean at this time of year.  For some, it’s little more than bundling away winter coats and shoes; for others, it means systematically going through each room, carrying out a deep clean and throwing out or recycling whatever isn’t nailed down (Hi, Mom!).

Official: Housework Might Be Harming Your Health

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 27, 2018 7:00 am

 
“Housework?  It can’t kill you, but why take the risk?” goes the fridge magnet/meme/Birthday card for your sister.  

But within that little lol, is a grain of truth.  Research just published in the American Thoracic Society’s Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine has found that using chemical-laden cleaning products every day has a detrimental effect on lung health.  If you use cleaning sprays regularly, then the impact can be the equivalent of smoking a full pack of cigarettes every day.  

Breaking News:  Cleaning really is bad for your health.
The Dangers of Chemical Cleaners

The research is pretty thorough, with scientists following 6000 test subjects over a 20-year period.  The findings observe that the chemicals inhaled from
