Healthy Sources of Protein

Some healthy protein sources that you may not have thought about.

Of course there is meat…

But beans are an excellent source of protein and so is quinoa.

Also, a handful of almond is an excellent source.

*Even just a small amount is enough.

For me the energy source is important.

Now what I like to do is to make healthy protein shakes.

There are over 100 different recipes and you can try whatever you like!

Finally ‘GREEN’ Jewellery!

Have you ever found a ‘GREEN’ jewellery business?  Well, I finally did and can’t wait to share it with you!  I suppose with so many people and businesses going ‘GREEN’ these days, there would have to be some type of ‘GREEN’ jewellery, but they are certainly not easy to find. 

The company I did find is: Brilliant Earth!  

This company has been raising awareness of re-emerging concerns about conflict diamonds. 

They have found that many diamond deposits found in Zimbabwe are now under government control.  Terrible things have happened there including torture and murders even though the stones are being sold as ‘conflict-free’. 

The diamonds from Brilliant Earth however, are sourced directly from mines with impeccable labor and environmental standards.  Their oxidized silver Earth digger’s pendant represents the plight of diamond diggers in Africa and support of their cause.  They even have an education campaign to help consumers understand the current diamond industry and what to expect from retailers.

Brilliant Earth offers helpful buying tips as well as gifts to match any style or price.

Brilliant Earth has found an alternative to mining like their silver peace pendant made from 100% recycled silver, as seen here: Recycled Silver

They are also participating in the very first fair-trade gold program with gold petroglyph-inspired pendants that reflect their commitment to the well-being of communities that make a living from mining.

For designs that promote awareness of the Earth, here is Brilliant Earth’s buying guide: Buying Guide

Earth Friendly Fabrics and Tips

Are you ready to revamp your closet for the fall? 

You should consider designers like, Kim Carlson, eco-expert and founder of “EarthSmart Consumer Certified”, who use earth-friendly fabrics and practices.   Kim helps people become true label readers in a way to be eco-chi and find green threads.  Although green clothes may not be the first thing we read about in fashion, there is definitely a growing awareness.

Here are some tips from Kim regarding eco-friendly fabrics like organic cotton, hemp fabric, tencel and wool.

Eco-Friendly Fabrics

Organic Cotton: Try to buy anything you wear next to your skin, like underwear and pyjamas made out of organic cotton.  Non-organic cotton is an extremely pesticide intensive crop.  It is comforting to know that organic cotton is raised without toxins or synthetic fertilizers.  So it’s better for land and water supply.  It’s also produced without harsh chemical bleaches or dyes, which won’t irritate your skin.
 
Hemp: Hemp is making a comeback not as a drug, but as a fabric.  Hemp grows naturally without pesticides.  Since it grows like a weed it even nourishes the soil rather than sapping it and costs less to produce.  Hemp is often combined with other fabrics like silk and cotton to make jeans, skirts, jackets and accessories including purses and belts.  No need to worry, this isn’t the clunky, hemp fashion of the 70’s.  The designs are sleek and exude a sophisticated eco-intelligence.
 
Tencel: Be sure to check labels when shopping for a new fabric called tencel.  It’s known in the fashion world for its “drape”.   It looks quite luxurious, similar to rayon.  The fabric is lightweight, soft and breathable.  Tencel is made from wood pulp – that’s right, trees. 
 
Most other synthetic fabrics are made from petroleum, a non-renewable and highly toxic resource.  Tencel is made from tree-farmed trees, a renewable resource.  The other good news is the fiber is produced with much less pollution than other man-made fibers.  
 
Wool: On a cool night you migh consider Alpaca wool.  Alpacas are related to Llamas of the Andes Mountains.  The wool doesn’t contain lanolin, meaning it doesn’t require the harsh chemicals used to clean sheep’s wool.  It is softer and stronger than conventional wool and comes in a wide range of beautiful, earth tone colors, which eliminates the use of toxic dyes.    
Recycled Options: 
To keep your fashion looking fresh and lighten your pocketbook, you can mix and match expensive, cheap, new and old into your wardrobe selections.  To take advantage of recycling, buy from a company that makes new goods out of discarded waste like “Ekoganic’s” recycled cashmere designs made from scrap cashmere.  It keeps scraps out of the waste stream and uses less energy patching pieces together. 
 
Care of Clothes:
Did you realize that taking care of your clothes is as important as the kind of clothes you buy?  Try using a biodegradable, non-phosphorus laundry soap.  If you buy something that needs dry-cleaning, be sure to take it to a “non-PERC” cleaner.  PERC (perchloroethylene) is a hazardous chemical that’s been linked to cancer.  You can find these cleaners by looking for “wet cleaners”, carbon dioxide cleaners or a silicone solvent cleaner.   If a PERC dry cleaner is used, take the plastic off of the clothes immediately and air them out in a basement for 48 hours before hanging them in your closet.  The plastic holds the toxic chemical in until you wear it!

The Bottom Line: Become a label reader!  Read clothing labels just as you read labels to find out what’s in your food.  Apply the organic principle: avoiding chemicals is a good thing even in what we wear and how we clean our clothes.  So the next time you go shopping remember these important tips.  Even take a little note with you listing different types of eco-friendly fabrics.

Love What You Do…

How has your summer been going?
I just got back from the cottage up north.

It was so nice to have a break…

but now back to the grindstone…

LOL

Well, not really, I just love what I do!

I work at home and spend time with my family,
so that’s the best part…

But…

I also get to help others, which is
important to me.

I help others work at home; supplement their
income; get healthy; live a healthy lifestyle and have
a positive mindset.

Really, a positive mindset is where it’s at!

If you try to stay more positive everything in your life
will follow suit.

You will even stay healthier overall, because there won’t
be as much stress in your life…

And stress can cause or increase major health issues like:

  • Autoimmune Diseases: (Celiac disease, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.)
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer

For more information on Autoimmune Diseases visit:

So, by doing what you love and having a more positive
mindset you and your family will live a healthier
lifestyle overall.

For work at home ideas, or to supplement what you currently do…

Please ask, I would love to help!

Yours truly,

Jill
