Our Introduction to the GREEN LIFE...

Around the home, my husband and I make a dual effort to make sure things are all natural/organic/eco-friendly, even right down to our toothpaste. Few years ago, my mother in-law came down with cancer and during her recovery, she shared with us about some of her findings about being organic and natural. To be honest, when she first told us about her findings, we didn't think much of it at first. Then, she purchased a book for my husband (her son), one year for Christmas called, Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know About, it totally changed our outlook on the food we ate and not to mention our lifestyle! That same year, right after Christmas, we emptied all of our cupboards, refrigerator, pantry, and even some things in our medicine cabinet, and threw some of it away and gave some of it to the local food drive and friends. We went out and spent nearly $1000, in one weekend to get all organic or natural spices, baking goods, meat, toiletries, dog food, you name it! We have never turned back since (although... my husband will slip in a few unhealthy things here or there...). We are so thankful, Pam (my mother-in-law), shared with us her findings of living the lifestyle of being organic and natural. We feel much better and not to mention, knowing we're not eating all those processed foods is comforting. It's scary to think the vegetables we were eating were radiated, our cooking flour was bleached, what kind of chemical did they use to color the drinks? Not to mention preservatives? We've been trying not to only eat green but also live a green lifestyle since Christmas of 2004. It has been a slow and gradual process, but still trying to strive our goal of being completely 100% green... if that is possible.
