We often get asked about protein powder. The truth is most proteins powders have a bunch of junk in them that you want to steer clear of, and are made in such a way that damages the proteins. However, there are a few out there that have high-quality ingredients without all the additives and chemicals.

Vital Proteins Collagen and Peptides are a great source of protein AND have many added health benefits.

It’s one of my favorite Paleo-friendly, health promoting products.

November 5th, 2012 | Bone Broth, Eating, Nourishing Foods

Our digestive tract is a 25-35 foot long, hollow tube (so to speak) that runs from our mouth to our anus.

What I love about consuming a “paleo” type diet is that it is nutrient-dense and eliminates many toxins found in foods (if you are focusing on getting food from quality sources).

Phytic acid, which is a plant’s storage form of phosphorus, binds with minerals and makes them unavailable to our bodies. The phytic acid will bind with minerals like calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium and iron and keep our bodies from being able to absorb and utilize them. Keep Reading…
