The Ultimate Organic Shopping Guide for Naturally Minded Moms
Over the past decade, it came to my attention that you can’t just walk into a grocery store’s produce section, grab a handful of vegetables, and think you are eating for your health.
Sadly, much of our food has been tainted with genetic manipulation to withstand gobs of Roundup sprayed all over it. Even products that are labeled “all-natural” can sneak highly processed ingredients like maltodextrin into our food.
It took me decades to learn about nutrition and how to read food labels. Now I realize that food isn’t the only culprit that is deteriorating our health. The products we put on our skin matter too as do the items we use on a day to day basis.
I am more savvy now and look for things that are non-toxic, manufactured sustainably, organically grown, and not genetically modified.
I will also share some of my favorite household products. We have slowly replaced the products we stock for our home. My goal as a mom is to purchase products that are kind to our bodies while also kind to the earth (hello sunscreen killing coral reefs!)
I know how frustrating it can be to try to find non-toxic products that work for your family’s needs. There are so many options.
I have tried hundreds of organic products and landed on a few that I absolutely love.
If you are transitioning to a cleaner lifestyle, I hope I can simplify the process for you.

You spend a third of your life asleep. If you make any non-toxic purchases for your family, an organic mattress will greatly improve your health.
Conventional mattresses are made with toxic substances and sprayed with flame retardants.
I love the company Naturepedic for mattresses for the whole family. They are a family owned business and have excellent customer service.

Non-toxic Cleaning Supplies
Cleaning supplies are the some of the most toxic substances in your home.

For the most part, we use plain water to wipe down surfaces. When we need something a little stronger than water, we use the follow supplies:
Non-Toxic, Organic Cosmetics and Beauty
I make a lot of my own beauty products from organic food and essential oils. You can check out my library of recipes here.
When I don’t have time to DIY, here are some clean beauty products that are safe and chemical-free.
You probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about your guts unless you have digestive issues. But did you know that digestion and your gut microbiome is one the biggest players when it comes to health?
According to the Human Microbiome Project, our bodies are made up of more bacteria than our own cells! A ratio of 10:1.
Sadly, much of the earth’s microbiome has been destroyed by chemical pesticides and fertilizers. In addition, most of us don’t have time for a backyard garden.
It’s imperitive that we supplement our gut with probiotics.
I love the company Entegro. Their probiotics come in an organic, non-GMO liquid medium, still eating and flourishing in the environment they were grown.
