Share Hormone Health Tools + Earn Extra Cash!

Who LOVES sharing healthy living tools with others to improve their quality of life AND earning some side money to do it? YOU? Awesome…
And to help you get started, through February, for anyone who joins me in our mission, I’ll send you a $10 gift card for every $100 you spend when purchasing your own hormone-safe products with your enrollment!
As you probably know, I recently gave up an 8 year partnership with my previous company to link arms with Hugh + Grace because I so deeply connect with the mission and goal of H+G to educate and empower families to effectively remove endocrine disrupters from their homes and support hormonal balance through cellular regeneration.

Here is the quick video I made about the affiliate + advocate opportunities (< 7min) –

* The “Learn” tab is really inspiring and educational!
RETAIL ACCOUNT: Do you own a brick and morder business where you sell products off the shelves?Salons, chiropractors, massage therapists and spas are LOVING the option to be featured as a H&G Retail Partner to carry branded Hormone Safe products.
The only differences with a retail account are you get 30% off and your registration package options are larger to get more products on your shelves. What most businesses are doing is enrolling with a personal advocate account first to try everything. Then, if they decide they want to move forward with a retail account, they enroll their BUSINESS with a retail account under their personal advocate account. Then, your personal advocate account earns the commission on your business enrollment if that makes sense. 🙂

Why I left the BODi (Beachbody) Business… and How I’m Re-Launching

This is a post I never thought I’d be writing…
After much prayer, consideration, tears and nearly 8 years, I’ve recently made the decision to end my partnership with BODi (Beachbody) in my Health Patriot business.
I will forever be grateful for the relationships built and lessons learned these past 8 years. The BODi opportunity changed our family’s life for forever.
To be honest though, it’s not what it was. I’m not who I was. And it’s no longer in alignment with the calling the Lord has placed on my heart and the needs of my family.
I’ve released a video with more details about this decision for those of you who are interested.
To my BODi fam, I love you all. I’m so proud of each of you and I’ll always be here cheering you on!
As for where I’m going next… I have been given an amazing opportunity to be a part of a newer company dedicated to creating hormone safe products and reducing our family’s exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals contributing to infertility, hormonal Imbalance, asthma, neurological issues and more. I am assisting in product formulation as the company grows and linking arms with other top notch business mama’s who are united in mission to address this issue impacting nearly every household.
We are creating hormone-safe products for what you put in, on and around your body.
If you know my backstory, my own infertility diagnosis, my struggle with anxiety attacks, nearly non-existent hormones, adrenal exhaustion and gut health mysteries… as well as my passion to educate and empower- you can feel it too. This is going to be BIG and such an amazing shift for my business, clients and family.

Or Find me over on IG at @Health_Patriot
If you’re still reading, I’d love to stay in touch and send you info to what we’re building- in products, business, family life and more. Subscribe to my emails here.
As always, thank you so much for your support, trust and encouragement. I always promise to advocate for transparency, freedom and staying alignment with God’s best for you… in all things!

Pregnancy after Miscarriage…


For those of you who haven’t heard…I’m growing another tiny human!!! We’re officially 11 weeks and we couldn’t be more excited! Announcing the news to everyone was both exciting and scary for me…

You see, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our last baby right before Christmas 2016. We were ELATED! Our due date was going to be in August. We were dreaming of our two babies playing together in the summer and fall and already re-arranging the nursery in our minds. Our incredibly full hearts…broke a month later when we found out our precious little one was no longer growing and had no heartbeat. For our full story, click here- To summarize, it was one of the most difficult things either of us had been through, emotionally, mentally, physically for me, and spiritually. We knew though, that we had so much to be thankful for and we had to keep taking steps forward one day at a time. While we will never forget our second baby, we have come to peace that they are with Jesus and we will see him or her one day again.

Fast forward to now…just a handful of months later and we have a healthy growing little babe making my pants too tight, making me crave weird foods, and kicking my butt! While usually pregnancy is full of JOY, EXCITEMENT, and positive thoughts of the future, I’m not going to lie…it’s been a struggle for me. I explained it one day as feeling like I have “PTSD” from my last pregnancy. I vividly remember the ultrasound that revealed no baby, the cold room we waited in for the final diagnosis, the blood draws, the tears…oh the thousands of tears. I remember the pills I had to take to help my body “process” the remaining fetal tissue and placenta…the cramps, the blood, the clots, the tears… I felt “unwomanly”. I felt like I failed even though I didn’t know what happened. I was angry, devastated, confused. Going through something like that is hard to recover fully from. And to be honest, it’s hard to forget.

This was the TEXT I sent my husband the night I found out by surprise that we were pregnant again!
This was the TEXT I sent my husband the night I found out by surprise that we were pregnant again!

It was really hard for me to be 100% excited when we found out we were pregnant again. We didn’t tell anyone, not even our families until we had multiple blood tests to confirm, and even then I hesitated. It was a protective mechanism. If I’m not super excited about this pregnancy and I just treat it like an every day ordinary occurrence, it won’t hurt as bad if/when we lose it. Now, I obviously know this isn’t the healthiest mindset to have, but it was my reality. I prayed through this, WE prayed through this. My husband and I shared our fears and concerns with each other as well as our excitements. I am SO blessed to have such an incredible man to keep me accountable in my mindset. He is always there for me whether I need someone to listen or someone to snap me out of my negative nancy attitude. So thankful for Him.

Then the day for our ultrasound came….I was nervous ALL. DAY. I kept preparing myself for the worst…Our first ultrasound with our last baby was when everything fell apart. I will never forget that day down to the smallest detail. So, sitting in a similar room under similar circumstances…was incredibly scary for me.

The ultrasound tech was sweet with the nicest smile. “Congratulations on your baby you guys! Now, let’s get some pictures of your little nugget, shall we?” She tells us as I lie down on the table and she squirts the warm jelly on my slightly rounded belly. My eyes were fixed on the monitor. I knew what I was looking for… The monitor lights up, my husband is tightly squeezing my left hand as we watch… and we all get the biggest smile on our faces when we see our little bambino waving it’s arms around and it’s perfect beautiful little heart beating away at a strong 170 beats per minute.FullSizeRender(1)

I CAN BREATHE AGAIN… This was the FIRST time I let myself TRULY get excited about this pregnancy. “We’re having a baby!!!” A giddily say to my hubs! He smiles and nods. We were so relieved that we were looking at our sweet rainbow baby. <3

I share this story with you guys because going through a miscarriage gave me such a different and real perspective into infertility issues. I felt the pain nearly 50% of women go through in their pregnancy difficulties. Unfortunately, for many people it’s considered a taboo topic…It’s such an intimate, unexplainable heartache that most don’t even know how to talk about it. How can you love something so much and be so heartbroken when it’s taken away when it was the size of a sesame seed or a green pea and only existed for a month or two? The pain… it’s very REAL. The struggle…sometimes lifelong. And the healthy babies that come after…they’re AWESOME! BUT…even those pregnancies are a growing process for the mama and papa who are learning to be excited again, how to love their angel baby, hold onto their memory, and let it be so they can process and be engaged in preparation for the next to come.

For any of you mama’s out there who cry with every pregnancy announcement you see, waiting for when it will be your turn…For those of you struggling and who have been struggling for years with infertility…for those of you who have angel babies in heaven and know this pain all too well. My heart goes out to you. You are STRONG. You are BEAUTIFUL. You are SO LOVED By your Creator. Every tear you’ve cried has been counted. Your story MATTERS. I can’t tell you why these things happen. I know there are no words I can say to make your pain go away. But I do know that we have a God who unconditionally loves each and every one of us, who cries when we cry and will move heaven and earth for His relationship with You. Trust Him, seek comfort from Him, and love Him. Watch as He turns your story of devastation into something more beautiful and powerful than you could ever dream of.

And as for you baby #3 growing like a weed inside of me. I love you so much and cannot wait to meet you and spend forever being your mama. 🙂

I’m the black sheep- Going against the grain


If you couldn’t tell…I absolutely, 100% LOVE what I do as a health coach. Truly, I know I was put on the planet to help other people feel their best. While I may KNOW that now, I haven’t always felt like it was a calling worthy of me pursuing. As you know, we live in a pretty negative society. The messages we constantly here are ones like…

  • You’re never good enough…
  • You’re never pretty, skinny, happy, energetic, productive enough…
  • You have to suffer to get anything good to happen…
  • You have to manipulate in order to get what you want…
  • You’re ridiculous & radical if you go against the grain and do things different than everyone else…
  • You’ll fail.

Does ANYONE out there feel this way? Can I get an amen?!?! 🙂

It’s so sad that this is the environment we live in. THIS is why so many never reach their fullest potential. THIS is why a staggering 80% of Americans don’t feel fulfilled in their jobs and wish they could do something else. Imagine with me for a minute, a world in which EVERYONE did what they were passionate about. Where EVERYONE operated in their strengths…we’d have every area covered because each of us was created with individual passions, traits, strengths, and characteristics. If you don’t like people for instance, you probably shouldn’t work in customer service. If you hate the smell of paint, you probably shouldn’t be a painter. If you pass out at the site of blood, you probably shouldn’t be an EMT. Makes sense, right? But somehow we were told we have to do what everyone else does, the way everyone else does it, in order to be successful. So…we settle. Well…I won’t. I’m breaking through the societal norm and I want to encourage you to do the same. For those who have a similar calling on their hearts, I want to take you with me.

How many of you have started to believe the lies you’ve been told about your potential? It’s super challenging sometimes to break through those voices. These are some of the things I’ve been told that I REFUSE to accept…

You can’t truly have your body back after you have a baby. Everything gets stretched out and you’ll never be the same.

You can’t REALLY make a substantial income from home. That’s something that exists in fantasy land.

It’s not possible to do what you truly love AND get paid good money for it.

You’re a grown up now…you can’t expect to find a job where you get more than 2 weeks of vacation each year. You should be happy with what they give you.

As you get older, you’ll see…you can’t be that healthy for long.

Everybody is going to get a disease at some point in their life these days.

You’re dreaming if you think you can actually be super successful working on your own schedule, helping other people, and make 6-7 figures/year. That’s not reality…what a waste of time.

What would happen if I accepted these lies as truth? I’d still be packing around baby weight (Which I’ve not only lost all of, but 7 pounds more…), I’d be miserable in my current job without any hope of the future, my family wouldn’t have been blessed with the amazing additional income & free superfoods these past 6 months, my soul wouldn’t be ON FIRE to help others, AND most importantly…the large group of people I’ve been able to encourage and help in their journey to health & wellness…they’d still be sick, overweight, hopeless, yoyo dieting, with their health problems and NO HOPE for the future. Now, that just isn’t ok with me…so what I will say to all of the haters out there…

????WATCH ME??✌?


I will and I am.
Joining the Beachbody team has truly changed my life in the past 6 months. I am stronger inside and out than I have EVER been. Talk about a fast transformation! I have purpose and passion in my heart. I find so much fulfillment in the messages I get from my team DAILY telling me about another pound lost, push up goal accomplished, cookie not eaten, emotional eating pattern destroyed, bad habit broken, life changed. My heart is full. I’m on a mission. A mission to change my world and I’m doing it. ?

My team is growing, and if I’m going to change the world, I’m going to need some help! I’m going to need some passionate individuals who want these same accomplishments for themselves & their family! Not just anyone will do…this isn’t for the weak at heart. There are specific requirements and characteristics I look for in a teammate. If you think you have what it takes and you deeply want the benefits that come with being able to work from home and provide for your family, I want you to contact me right now- If you’re looking for a get rich quick scheme, if you’re not self-motivated, if you won’t do the programs & be an example yourself, this is NOT for you, look elsewhere.

If you’re ready to do something about this sick, dark, depressed population, let’s do this thang! Maybe I’ll even get us matching capes…who knows?! 🙂


All my challengers out there who are just along for the ride and are loving these programs and how they make you feel. AWESOME! Keep doing what you’re doing and impacting your world in your area. You’re killing it!

Let’s Do This,

What to do when the weight of the world is on your shoulders…

Last week was one of those weeks for me…

For the sake of transparency, and being authentic, I wanted to share with you all where my heart was last week and why it was a powerful growing experience for me.

Have you ever felt burnt out, never good enough, defeated, like the weight of the world was on your shoulders and you didn’t know how to turn things around? That was me last week. It’s funny because as a health & fitness coach, I lead other people to process through their emotions, negative patterns, self-doubt, and baggage that they hang onto. So, when it comes to feeling those things myself, I feel extra broken. I’m “supposed” to be better than this…to know the answers…to…never…struggle? Wait, that’s not realistic…but that was the expectation I subconsciously had on myself.

Ok, Jessica, pull it together, you need to be able to work full time in a job that emotionally drains you daily, to run a side full-time business that is actually you living out your passion, but is just starting out so takes extra time and effort to get off the ground, but also be fully present when you’re home to soak in your son who is growing way to fast (you don’t want to miss a second of this, do you??), make sure the house is clean, meals are prepped, groceries are fully stocked with healthy options like a good “wife” (none of these crazy expectations come from my husband, might I add..all self inflicted here), wake up at 0400 every morning to complete your workout without struggling to get up in the morning, also for goodness sakes, go get your nails & hair done and a spray tan every now and then, you need to remember to be a girl in all of this, oh and figure out what kind of projects need to be started on the house, the front and back yard are looking pretty crappy, so you guys should start working on that so the neighbors don’t think your white trashy…ALSO your car is making weird noises, I know you decided to not purchase another vehicle right now, but you might have to, so figure out if you want to spend $55k on a new truck or $40 on an old one with almost 100k miles on it…I don’t know why that’s so hard for you to comprehend, everyone else is doing it…why are you so weird? Ok, now go do some social media posting, you’re going to miss the prime time that everyone is on their FB, IG, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, WordPress, snapchat, and email! Hurry, hurry, hurry….baby has a wet diaper and is hungry again, also you should probably make some dinner it’s 9pm.

Hahahaha…THIS IS MY BRAIN. No wonder I had a mini melt down this weekend! Can anyone relate to this madness? I know many of you out there can. I just finished listening to an incredible audio book this past week as I was driving to and from work, and it’s really helped me process through my intangible expectations I put on myself. I highly recommend listening to it, It’s called The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown. This book also helped me realize the importance of authenticity, especially in a leadership role. We are all in a struggle of some sort. Social media, unfortunately is a huge problem when it comes to us feeling insufficient. We see everyone else’s smiles, victories, six-packs, and seemingly “perfect” lives, but no one shares their struggles, hardships, doubts, etc.

I 100% believe I was put on this earth to help others. I LOVE to inspire, encourage, educate, motivate, and love on others to help them feel and see and realize how awesome they are and the greatness they can achieve. I’ve come to realize the most helpful thing I can do is to be real myself with my own struggles and the solutions I find or attempt to find for those struggles. Hence, this blogpost.

I have come to realize that I can’t continue at the mental pace I am going. In Brene’s studies, she found that the most successful, whole hearted people are those who rest & play the most. Yes, they work hard, but they MAKE TIME for rest and play…what a rare thing in our society, right? When we become adults we enter into this competition for who can be the most successful at late nights, early mornings, being sleep deprived, and beat ourselves up the most just to climb the ladder faster than everyone else. How many of you wish we still incorporated nap time and recess into our work days?? Am I right?! 🙂 Yesterday, when I was overwhelmed with every expectation I put on my shoulders…while I didn’t feel like doing it at first, I knew I had to do one of my 22 Minute Hard Corps workouts, and I am SO glad I did! Exercise is one of the most effective methods of stress management. It teaches your body during stressful times, for survival, that it’s crucial to burn fat and lean out (Stress eating creates the opposite subconscious response. Your body will learn to hold onto extra fat cells as a protective mechanism when eating sweets or junk food when stressed). This for me is a type of play. It makes me feel stronger, accomplished, and while I can’t control a lot of what happens in the world, I can control this area of my life and make good choices to eat healthy & exercise. Happy endorphins are ALWAYS a good thing, am I right? 🙂 It also helps to have a super cute 8 month old on the exercise mat clapping as I do my jump squats…haha.

Take home points…

  • Take time to rest & find what it is that restores your soul and is fun for you- schedule that in your calendar and make rest & play happen.
  • When you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders…it is ALWAYS a good time to exercise.
  • Be GRACIOUS to yourself, be KIND to yourself, LOVE yourself. We forget how awesome we are.
  • Enjoy the moment. Be present with your current struggle, current joy, current love. We get so wrapped up in worrying about the future or past that we miss the moment.
  • Be authentic. Be YOU.

I hope this was an encouragement for you in whatever stage of life you may be in now. Life can be brutal, but it can also be beautiful. Let us not forget to always look for the beauty. Have an amazing day!

P.S…if you’re looking for a playful, encouraging, inspiring group to join, we have a challenge group starting 8/29! Feel free to contact me for the details!-

Is Your Weight Loss Plan Killing You?

I can’t hold it in anymore….I am SO frustrated and irritated at misinformation and people being preyed on by corrupted companies, doctors, pharmaceutical industries who develop a falsity to happiness by telling people they can lose weight fast in any other way than by eating healthy, exercising, stress management, and taking care of yourself.

There are SO many women especially who spend their ENTIRE LIVES trying every diet on the planet, diet pills, drops, etc in attempts to lose weight, and it NEVER WORKS, and we are left feeling defeated, depressed, broken, unhealthy, unloved, invaluable…and the cycle continues.


If YOU have been looking for that magic diet, magic pill, magic anything, you need to stop looking outward and look within. I am giving you an opportunity. An opportunity to not only lose those extra pounds, but feel stronger than you ever have. An opportunity to regain your confidence, to lose the insecurities, lose the self-hatred, self-doubting, self-bashing fest, and come to a place where you actually FEEL how incredibly beautiful, powerful, and capable your body was created to be!

These challenge groups I’ve been running are a place where individuals have pushed themselves out of their comfort zone, tried new exercises, a new way of thinking, a new way of eating, have learned to love and invest in themselves, and have seen the incredible results that come when you commit to this program.

For those of you who are still wondering what this whole “challenge group” thing is about, we are just a group of ordinary people who are sick of feeling sick and incapable. We all share the goal of transforming into our best, strong, healthy, confident, fit selves, and we are committed to keeping each other accountable through the process. We have a private FB group where we post pictures, recipes, videos, questions, concerns, victories, and encouragement to keep each other going strong. This works. Period. If you’re looking for a guarantee, you’ve got it right here. Beachbody goes as far as having a bottom of the bag guarantee on their Shakeology, meaning, they believe in their product SO much that even if you consume the whole bag, if you’re not happy with the results you got, they’ll refund your money… 100%. That is UNHEARD OF in this industry!

I’m not going to beg you. I don’t NEED anything from you. I WANT, SO DEEPLY for illness, obesity, and preventable diseases to be eradicated. This is one incredibly effective way to get strong, lean, healthy, energized, confident, and happy in record time. But you have to want it, and you have to be willing to put the work in.

If this is you, I want you right now to send me an email or text. I’ll even give you my number to get in touch with me and ask me any questions you may have. I want that deeply for you to succeed.

Phone- 209-840-0900 (Text messages only please)


If you know someone who needs to hear this message, feel free to share it. We need to band together and start looking into WHY we are one of the sickest industrialized nations in the world…it’s time to stop being the victim and start taking control of our futures for the generations to come.

The Mom Squad- Preparing for the battle

To be honest, yesterday, I was in the midst of writing one of my regular posts about 2 of Beachbody’s July promotions for challenge packs, and I was planning on finishing that blog post today and sending it out like an ordinary day.

But, I just can’t. Today isn’t an ordinary day.

Today, we morn with the families who lost their loved ones in the shootings in Dallas and across America as several other officers were shot at today. Today, we realize that the wounds of this country go deep and from those wounds, many are irrationally acting out in hatred with senseless acts of violence. We have flip flopped…what was historically considered “wrong” is now looked at as acceptable, and what was historically considered “right” is now prosecuted against and looked at as radicalism. If you are a melatonin deprived Christian conservative, who stands for morals and faith, you are all of a sudden looked at as a radicalist by so many! I can’t tell you how many social media posts have grouped all the white people and cops into racist people. What nonsense! I love all the colors! Heck, I’m pretty sure I AM all the colors in a melting pot. Let’s stop bringing division and start strengthening ourselves, our families, our circles, our communities, and our country. Today, as my mind was flooded with mixed emotions of anger, sadness, frustration, and fear for my family full of peace officers, I realized something.

Every day is a battlefield.

LIFE is a battlefield, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Let me tell you something, if you haven’t already realized it, in the months to come, things are most likely going to get worse, not better. With our pending election and the ever so popular 2 candidates we have, no matter which one is elected, we most likely will be immersed into chaos.

Either way, I want to be physically, mentally, and spiritually as ready as I can be. Training season has commenced in a very real way. Some of you may think I’m crazy, and that is fine, but I know for some of you women out there, I am speaking your language. You want to feel strong, capable, full of faith instead of fear, resourceful, knowledgeable, and you want to know how to protect yourself and your family from the evil that lurks around every corner. This is why I have decided to launch a women’s group, ” The Mom Squad”.

In this group, I will utilize the Beachbody programs to help encourage women to get physically stronger and more agile than they’ve ever been, we will talk nutrition & meal planning to optimize our nutrition for ourselves & our families, we will increase our superfood consumption, we will pray for each other and encourage each other in our faith, we will share resources related to our current daily life struggles, we’ll learn more about the immune system, digestive system, hormonal balance, we’ll learn to BUILD EACH OTHER UP AND NOT TEAR OURSELVES DOWN, we’ll learn the importance of inner confidence, and we might even talk about tactical readiness for women!

This is going to be a support group, and it’s going to be awesome. We’re going to get stronger in every way and motivate each other through our training. The accountability is going to be awesome!

If this resonates with you, I want you in the Mom Squad. You do not have to be a mom, but this will be a women only group.



The importance of this area goes without saying. To be a part of “The Mom Squad”, you need to choose one of two programs to follow. I’ve done both and both are amazing, and ironically both on sale for the month of July!

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 8.24.19 PM






Check out the links above and see which option fits you and your lifestyle best! I would be happy to speak with you more if you have any questions! I am SO excited to build “The Mom Squad” and create a space for some incredible bad-ass women to be loved on, encouraged, educated, and motivated to become their best self and become prepared for the daily battlefield.

Top 5 Harmful Foods

Although I am anti-deprivation and pro-filling your plate with a bountiful of various fresh foods, there are some damaging foods you need to know about to avoid any further detrimental long-term effects to your body. These usually won’t kill you if you consume them once, but over time they are gauranteed to drain your energy level, jack up your hormones (yes men, you fo sho have hormones too!), make your skin wrinkly, pack on the pounds, and significantly increase your risk of cancer and disease by leaps and bounds. What’s sad is that these foods are in the majority of people’s every day diet. And….we wonder why the cancer rate has drastically increased to 1 out of 2 people. It’s pretty easy to see why when you take a step back and look at what most people are eating every day, not to mention stress, toxins, etc. YOU CAN live a healthy life free of disease! It’s not all that hard, just eat clean, be happy, drink water, get rest, get grounded, and find ways to manage your stress.

As much as you can, try to avoid these foods that will make you a sicko.

1. Sugar

White sugar is one of the most detrimental elements for our health. Not only does it cause inflammation, suppress the immune system, cause infection to grow, and create chronic fatigue, but it is the #1 food choice for cancer. As far back as 1957 in his article published in the Michigan Organic News, Dr. William Coda classified sugar as a poison because it is stripped of life forces, vitamins and minerals. “What is left consists of pure, refined carbohydrates. Incomplete carbohydrate metabolism results in the formation of `toxic metabolite` such as pyruvic acid. This interferes with the function of a part of the body and is the beginning of degenerative disease”. Read your labels carefully because sugar is in almost all processed foods. Here are more resources on the dangers of sugar:


2. Dirty Dairy

Dirty dairy is any kind of dairy that is non-organic and pasteurized. The only kind of dairy that has some nutritional value is if it is raw or unpasteurized and organic from grass-fed cows, sheep, or goats. When milk is pasteurized it completely kills all nutrient value, rendering it a completely dead food. This requires significant amounts of energy and work for the body to process the food when you consume it, leaving you fatigued. Homogenized dairy is even worse as it completely denatures all the proteins and becomes even more toxic to consume. Dairy is also a mucous forming food. If you have ever struggled with allergies, sinus infections, or digestive distress, most likely you have excessive mucous production in your body. Mucus production is a result of the body’s protective mechanism, but too much mucous results in malabsorption of foods in the digestive tract, leading to malnourishment, and degenerative disease. On top of being mucous forming, the worst part is the fact that commercialized dairy these days is full of artificial hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. It is IMPOSSIBLE for you to consume dairy products with these dangerous elements and not be damaged at some level from them.

Now to clear up a few myths of milk and diary.

1. It does not prevent osteoporosis, but actually causes it!

2. It does not increase calcium levels, nor is it the best source.

3. Low-fat dairy is not healthier.

3. Gluten

To keep it short and simple, modern wheat and grains is night and day different to what was available in the Bible days. There is a common misconception that whole wheat is actually healthy for you. I used to think this as well, but the truth is, even whole grain wheat can be damaging to our bodies. Did you know that the wheat grain available in ancient times didn’t actually contain gluten? Interesting huh? The wheat grain back then is referred to as Einkorn Wheat and doesn’t contain any gluten nor does it compare to regular grains. This type of wheat is very nutritious! Modern day gluten-containing foods damage our intestinal lining and cause inflammation, always leading to degenerative effects on the body. Remember our talk about sugar? As soon as we eat foods containing gluten, it immediately changes into sugar in our system and has all of the same destructive effects. Here are more resources on gluten:


4. Hydrogenated & Partially Hydrogenated Oils

These oils are also known as trans-fats and are extremely dangerous. These oils are used in many processed foods, deep fried foods, pastries, and many store-bought cookies and crackers. They are a major culprit to heart disease, chronic inflammation, joint pain, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disease, & birth defects. They are SO dangerous that they have actually been outlawed in states like New York! Here are more resources on these oils:


5. GMO Foods

These “wanna-be” foods also known as “Frankenfoods” are extremely dangerous not only for our bodies but for our children and their children. GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Basically, these foods are created in a laboratory where their genes are modified. This genius (insert sarcastic tone here) invention was created by the most evil corporation on the planet, Monsanto. GMO foods are manipulated genetically so when the crops are sprayed with highly toxic RoundUp and pesticides, they don’t die. Read more about GMO foods and how they have recently been scientifically proven to cause cancer, tumors, and premature death here-

 So, guys, do what you can to avoid these nasties and keep it fresh with local produce, clean meats (if you eat it), nuts, seeds, healthy fats, and gluten-free whole grains. You can do it! Have an awesome day soaking up the sunshine and getting your Vitamin D!
