Popular, highly recommended cleanser is actually harmful to you.

I can't stand it. But I have to share this stuff when I read it. After I check it out a few other places to make sure it is legit.  Read what Well and Good reported about Cetaphil 

The uber popular recommended wash , Cetaphil is nothing but a NASTY chemical wash that you don't want on and in your body.  

I am so thankful I found a wash 6 years ago that is free of the nasties the US FDA allows on our shelves.  Regardless if you decide to purchase Arbonne from me, do your health a favor and purchase a clean product.

Are you throwing away the most nutritious part?

Have you ever eaten an Avocado?    How about the seed?  OMG. Last night a church  in a wellness class the uber educated instructor said the seed has amazing benefits and we should eat them.  Well, maybe drink them in a smoothie (if you have a Incredible Hulk type blender). I love my Vitamix.

So, I decided to look it up, and he is right.  That seed is where most of the nutrition is stored.  Holy guacamole. It's time to stop throwing away the most nutritious part.  The article I read suggested cutting it into 4 pieces and that 1/2 a seed is a serving.  You and dry them out for a few days in a sunny window.  Or, just blend it up.  If you want to read up on it, here is the article I read.

The major benefits are fiber and polyphenols that are are antioxidants  which are plant chemicals that, according to the University of Michigan Integrative Medicine, "may help prevent cancer, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, stroke, obesity, arthritis, and other diseases by:
  • Inhibiting growth of cancer cells
  • Reducing high blood pressure
  • Protecting against stroke
  • Improving blood flow to the heart
  • Reducing total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
  • Inhibiting the formation of blood clots in artery walls
  • Stabilizing blood sugar levels
  • Lowering the risk for osteoporosis
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent
  • Enhancing immune function and helping fight infections
  • Protecting against viral infections and liver disease
  • Inhibiting the growth of bacteria that can cause gum disease, cavities, and bad breath
  • Exhibiting an antibacterial effect on harmful bacteria inside the body
  • Improving brain function and preventing brain cell death"
 Other sources of these antioxidants are in green tea including Arbonne Fizz drink, cloves, cocoa, flax seed which included in Arbonne protein powder , Mexican oregano, dried, and many more.

Don't Sweat Wellness in the Workplace

Healthy changes are hard to keep in the workplace. The breakroom tends to be center stage for Girl Scout cookies sales and your co-workers kids leftover birthday cake.  The culture keeps feeding you afterwork with happy hours and appetizers.

Clean Eating Katie is here to the rescue.  I am looking to bless your workplace with some fun wellness education. We can play quarters if you want with shots of protein shakes and fizz energy drinks.  Openings available weekdays 9am - 2pm. Email me to see if we are a fit for each other. I don't work with just anyone now. 
Go ahead, ask me to lunch.... in the office for a lunch and learn to encourage health and wellness with your co-workers and employees. You can blame ME for throwing away that leftover cake. I'll be your scapegoat. Dam Goats!
