Open Letter to All Moms (Transcript)

Today I am speaking to you as a daughter. I want to say what your own child can’t or won’t say: Take care of yourself. 

We lost my mom to diabetes at age 57. She will never meet my children. My kids had the best grandma in the world and they will never know her.

My mom raised me and my 3 brothers to love holidays, celebrations, and family.

She taught us that family is most important. That it’s not about blood but about who you choose in life. She created a huge family.

She took in my cousin as a son and my step-sister as a daughter.

And when my brother struggled in 2nd grade, she dropped everything and figured out how to teach us herself because no one else would care as much. Then she took in everyone else’s kids and she taught them too. She shaped the lives of so many.

Our health isn’t something selfish that we can’t make time for, our health is a gift to our kids, or a burden they must bear.

When we sacrifice our own health for the ballet lessons, the baseball practice, the birthday parties, that is a sacrifice our kids don’t want us to make.

I’d give back all the vocal lessons and slumber parties if I could have just a little more time with my mom.

We don’t let our kids make that decision. We make it for them.

As a kid who lost a mom way too soon, I’m asking you, please, don’t let that happen.

The most important thing we can do is to be healthy for each other.

We are setting examples that our children will learn and grow from. Our actions today will change the course of their lives.

It is my mission not just to talk about improving health but to actually do it

In order to make this possible, it must first be easy. We can make healthy easy.

I believe the next generation will be healthier than the last.

We will stand up and make the world realize that the most important things are family and love, and that the word health is synonymous with both.

Putting yourself first is putting your family first.

Moms – it starts with you. You craft the mindsets of our children. You shape the habits and health of the future. You are the caregivers, the instructors, the world-shapers.

That is a huge responsibility.

Share this with anyone who you feel needs to hear this message. Watch and re-watch this anytime you need to strengthen your resolve. 

Let’s bring back health. Let’s safeguard our families. Let’s change the world.

Whole Leaf Wheatgrass Powder vs. Wheatgrass Juice Powder
Whole Leaf Wheatgrass Powder vs. Wheatgrass Juice Powder

March 27, 2017

Wheatgrass is sold in many forms; from mini trays of the live seedlings to fresh juices and various wheatgrass powders. The internet is a daunting maze of conflicting information, making it discouraging to work out the differences between the biggest sellers of powdered wheatgrass.

The main argument that separates powdered whole leaf and powdered juice is mainly whether or not humans can digest cellulose. Some wheatgrass powders, such as Nurtured by Nature’s Organic Wheatgrass Powder, are specifically whole-leaf, retaining vegetable fiber as well as the many nutrients of evaporated juice.

Let’s break this down to better understand the anti-cellulose fad...
