Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

You would do anything for your kids, wouldn’t you?  Of course you would.  I’ve found that motherhood has led me some places that I never thought I would go, all in the hunt for the best for my kids.

All About Food Dyes Part 1: Why We No Longer Consume Food Dyes

Our family’s journey to eliminating food dyes in our home began when one of our children suddenly started displaying ADHD-like symptoms, frequent headaches and stomachaches, and angry, violent outbursts.  It was early 2016, and we had just returned from living in Europe for 2-1/2 years.  Within a few months, we were suddenly dealing with issues we had never experienced before, and wondering what happened to our lovable, affable (though admittedly strong-willed) child.
