Local organic…

buy local, organic food

Even though it's a challenge to buy everything from local sources, I love to know where my food is coming from.  For example, I'm on a first name basis with everyone in the produce department, and love to hear every juicy tidbit regarding the farmers they buy from… I've even gotten to know the names and stories of the people they buy from, which for certain produce they carry, happen to be family farms (yes, local is possible from the grocery store)!  I love farmers markets, and do prefer them over any other market… I always shop local as much as possible!

Locally grown organic food…

…is fresher, healthier, and tastes better!

…is seasonal, allows you to be more in touch with what you should naturally be consuming, while getting a healthy variety

…supports local farmers

…is better for the environment

know your food!
Big companies are buying up small, local organic food providers.
The quality of our food supply is at risk… we must continue to support our local farmers!

So sore!!!

So I worked out way too hard yesterday and can barely move. It's a good pain, but still pain.

My absolute fav go-to muscle fixer…
Badger Ginger, Arnica & Cayenne Massage Oil
link to purchase here

~ Arnica ~

Arnica has been a natural remedy through the ages in the form of a topical application.  
It actually does work for muscle and cartilage pain, swelling and such that comes with sprains, aches, inflamed areas, and joint problems.  
The rub I prefer is a massage oil of ginger, arnica, cayenne, vitamin E, & whole plant oils… 

Ginger is an excellent anti-inflammatory.  The compounds are effective for stiff, aching muscles & joints. Antioxidants in ginger suppress toxic free radicals that promote tissue damage & inflammation.  

Cayenne contains capsaicin, a substance that is effective at blocking pain.  It tricks the brain into thinking that the skin is being exposed to extreme heat and allows the nervous system to respond by releasing a neurotransmitter until no more pain signals can travel from that area to the brain.

This massage oil is always on the ready in my house… love this stuff!
