Why Use an Infrared Sauna

The best part of my day is after I get the kids to bed and I hop in our far infrared sauna at 150 degrees for 30 minutes. That’s my time to read, meditate, or watch some TV if I need some mindlessness. My not so favorite part of the… Read More

Women Bar – Not Just For Women

It’s hard to find good bar when you don’t eat gluten, dairy, or soy. So many bars have whey protein (dairy) or soy isolate which increases cancer risks, disrupts hormones, and is not good for your thyroid. Many people disagree, but I feel strongly about those risks, and I won’t… Read More

Proteolytic Enzymes

I’ve been taking proteolytic enzymes for at least 6 years, and it’s one of those things I don’t go a day without taking.  They are anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer. They break down fibrin which is like spiderwebs in the blood that slows down blood flow. It’s also a place where cancer… Read More

Maison Dixon Gluten Free Bakery Rice Free Options!

I’m returning to blogging after some needed down time with my 4 children, but now that my littlest is almost 3, I’m ready to get back in the game.  The only thing is, I still don’t have a lot of time, hence the new name, ‘Just A Thawt’. I have… Read More

Capello’s Grain-Free Products

As you may have noticed, I’m grain-free. I have been since the first trimester of my last pregnancy. Harlow is now 10 weeks old and I’ve never felt better. I really hate labels, and people always ask, or assume what box I’m supposed to fit into. Am I vegan, paleo,… Read More

Hail Merry Desserts

We cook almost everything we eat at our house because it’s so rare to find something packaged that is unprocessed. Hail Merry Desserts are delicious, gluten-free, and pale friendly – meaning low-glycemic, grain-free and dairy-free. The coconut vanilla cream is the kid’s favorite. Check out the ingredients:  organic shredded coconut, organic… Read More

The Best Tooth Care!

I haven’t written a post in a few months, for reasons I’ll get into soon, but I keep telling people about how amazing my teeth feel so I thought it would just be easier to do a post. Living Libations is the creation of Nadine Artemis. She began experimenting with… Read More

Dr. Fuhrman’s Prenatal Vitamins

I’m a huge fan of Dr. Fuhrman’s books (under the Health tab in My Favorites) and now of his supplements. The whole issue of supplements can be so confusing. Do you need them? Don’t you? You need folate. No, wait, it’s bad for you. There’s a lot of conflicting research out… Read More

Recommended Reading – Vegan Recipes & Info.

A friend of mine recently asked what books I recommend for vegan recipes. She said she got Ellen Degeneres’ Chef’s book, Vegan Cooking for Carnivores, but was disappointed because of all the faux meats. I agree. Going vegan, or vegetarian, should be about eating a whole food based diet, not… Read More

There was a time not that long ago when I could not find the right SPF moisturizer and now there are so many great options. I recently purchased this one from a cosmetics line I already adored, Josie Maran Cosmetics. It has SPF 40, UVB, and UVA ray protection. It… Read More

Protein Rich Whole Wheat Orzo

Organic Whole Wheat Orzo is a great vegetarian source of protein, with 7 grams in only 1/3 of a cup. Not to mention 9 grams of fiber! It’s easy to incorporate into dishes, and is a great substitute for brown rice. I’m always surprised at how obsessed people are with… Read More

Denim Therapy

We all know that we should recycle, but we don’t often get too excited about it. But here’s a major exception! Denim Therapy is giving our favorite, worn-in jeans a new life. Considering how expensive a new jeans are, this is some amazing news. Here are some examples of what… Read More

Elephant Ears

There are few things that gross me out as much as walking into some one’s home or office and seeing an animal head proudly mounted on the wall. However, this paper-mâché elephant head I love. The concept could have gone really wrong, but I think it’s great. Not only does… Read More

Candle 79

Whenever I’m in New York, which isn’t often enough, I hit up Candle 79 on the upper east side. It’s my favorite vegan restaurant there, with Pure Food and Wine being a close second. I always order the Seitan Piccata and now I can have it at home without the… Read More

Portable, Healthy, Family Travel Snacks

Snacks are one of the most important things to remember to pack when traveling with kids. Blood sugar drops can make for cranky little ones, so can blood sugar hikes, and boredom. A good snack will be easy to carry, full of protein, fiber, and antioxidants so no one is… Read More

Sulfate-Free Shampoos

Another question I get asked a lot is what kind of shampoo I use. Most people are now aware of the dangers of sulfates in shampoos, but it’s difficult to find non-toxic shampoos that still work well. Many leave your hair looking and feeling to dry, or too weighed down.… Read More

The Deodorant Dilemma

I’m sure we’ve all heard by now about the risk of breast cancer associated with traditional deodorants with aluminum, and antiperspirants. Lavanila is a deodorant only, not an antiperspirant, as most natural brands are. I personally would rather naturally perspire, than block my sweat glands. I’m sure there’s is a… Read More
