Want to know the secret to making raw kale enjoyable?! 🌿 Massage it!! Yes, you read that correctly. I made dinner with my brothers and sister-in-law tonight and when I told them this was the secret to good kale they were really surprised! Then, after tasting how much better kale is when massaged, they said I should definitely share this tip with you all!⠀
So here it is:⠀
1️⃣ Thoroughly rinse raw kale⠀
2️⃣ Dry it (I use a salad spinner)⠀
3️⃣ Tear it off the large stem (optional)⠀
4️⃣ Chop into small sections⠀
5️⃣ Throw it in a large bowl and add a healthy oil of your choice (like avocado or olive oil. I used olive oil for this because olive oil is best used without heat due to its low smoke point) and quite a bit of fresh lemon juice 🍋 I usually use half a lemon. The oil and lemon juice "cook" down the oil, giving it the texture of sautéed kale, but it's still raw 🙌🏼⠀
6️⃣ Massage for at least a few minutes or until your hands are sore 😂⠀
7️⃣ Then add toppings and enjoy! Seriously, this is a game changer 💥

My newest article, The Complete Guide to Nontoxic Oral Care, is a good one! It's packed with suggestions for healthy oral care products + explains why this transition is an important one. Hint: oral health impacts overall health ✨ Link in bio to read the full article.⠀
One brand I've used to remineralize my teeth, help heal cavities, and improve my oral health dramatically is @well_scent. Here are a few benefits of these dentist-recommended products that replace toothpaste, mouthwash, and whitening products:⠀
👄 Eliminate Bad Breath⠀
👄 Biofilm Support⠀
👄 Antibacterial, Antimicrobial, Anti-Inflammatory, Antiviral, Anti-fungal, and Antiseptic ⠀
👄 Brightening & Whitening⠀
👄 Immune Boosting⠀
👄 Whole Mouth Herbal Detox⠀
We're giving away TWO full-size products of your choice, see 2 posts back to enter. ⠀

This is truly key to making healthy living sustainable and enjoyable. Focus your energy on all of things you *can* do for your health, instead of what you need to avoid. This is where the most powerful change happens. Rather than focusing on restriction, focus on cultivating healthy habits and enjoying the results they bring! ✨🙌🏼

Who's up for another GIVEAWAY?! ✨⠀(now closed)
Yesterday I released my Complete Guide to Nontoxic Oral Care to share my favorite items for oral health and to empower you to make healthy choices when it comes to products that we use every day. One of the brands I mentioned was @well_scent, aromatherapist-created, dentist-recommended, and created by a survivor of Late Stage Lyme Disease. In fact, the founder formulated many of her products and used them for her own healing ✨⠀
I personally used @well_scent's Watch Your Mouth toothpaste replacement, Shine, and Sparkle to help remineralize cavities and not only did they successfully work in remineralization, but my mouth never felt cleaner than it did with these formulations. 🙌🏼 The testimonials speak for themselves, but just to give you an idea of how powerful they are: these formulas have helped reduce inflammation after dental surgery, reduce gingivitis & promote healthy gums, eliminate sensitivity, and detoxify the mouth & gums.⠀

In fact, many of their testimonials are from dentists who are so impressed with the results, it became the #1 line they recommend to their patients! 💯⠀
🎉 We've teamed up to give away TWO dental products to one winner. You can choose between: Just for Grins (a Nutritive Toothpaste Replacement and Mouthwash), Watch Your Mouth (Extreme Clean Toothpaste Replacement and Mouthwash), Shine (Mineral Rich Dental Brightener & Polish), and Sparkle (Natural Teeth Whitening and Whole Mouth Herbal Detox). ✨ This is a huge value!⠀
You can also take 15% off their site with code Hannah15 for a limited time 🎁⠀
To enter:⠀

2. Head to my blog post (link in bio) and leave a comment there telling me where you are in this transition or something you enjoyed from the post⠀

Winner will be announced in a few days! U.S. Only. Good luck! 🎉

NEW BLOG: Did you know that your thyroid relies on several key nutrients to function properly? The thyroid gland is responsible for so many important functions in the body. From regulating our metabolism and energy, to our adrenal/stress hormones and sex hormones, it's one of the most critical parts of the endocrine system. Yet we often overlook thyroid health until we're faced with thyroid "disorders".⠀
If you're faced with thyroid dysfunction, suspect that you may have a thyroid issue, or just want to make sure you’re getting adequate nutrition for proper thyroid function (and prevent future thyroid issues), this post is a must-read. In the post, I've included the key nutrients for thyroid function and the best sources of each, so you know exactly which foods support your thyroid - link in profile!⠀
Remember, food is information. It has the power to promote healing (or contribute to disease), so we might as well choose wisely...our health depends on it!
