You guys. Did you know 1 in 3 women will have cancer in their lifetime? Me either 😞. I got a little personal on the blog tonight. I listened to a really great @tonyrobbins podcast about how everyday food ingredients are contributing to major health problems like cancer, allergies, Autism and ADHD. I know I’m probably behind the times, but as a cancer survivor myself, I had to share what I learned. Link is in bio. Tell me what you think! .... Have you cut these things out of your diet yet? I’m definitely going to try to do more organic food from here on out. Especially for our future children! 💛
I encourage you all to watch Robyn’s video on food allergies. I first heard Robyn on a Tony Robbins podcast. At the time, I was dealing with a toddler being diagnosed with toddler asthma and I never expected it. Her studies have shown the link with the foods we feed our children and their allergies and behaviors (ADD, hyperactivity, etc). As a parent you do your very best at all times and want to give your kids the very best. When I realized that perhaps the food I had been feeding them, could have been a cause of some type of harm, I decided to do my best to educate myself so that I could make sure they were getting the best. We started with two changes at first. Dairy always has to be organic, and we avoid food colouring. This means no fruit snacks unless there is no artificial colouring. You have to start slow with realistic goals, because it can be overwhelming, and in turn difficult to maintain, but with a few slight changes, you can still make a huge difference!
There are a lot of differences in the food industry between the USA and Canada, but the information she shares, as a mother and type A personality, resonated with us.
If you have any tips or information you can share, please DM us or leave them in comments.
This book is so informative. Wanting to get my families health on track and Liam allergies under control I’m sick at how much food and environment is making us so sick. This is a great read. Inflammation is linked to cancer and so many ailments and basic things you put in your body not just anaphylaxis reactions will cause this and long term pain and illness. @tonyrobbins had #robynobrien on his podcast and this is her research that came from personal reactions from her kiddos. #theunhealthytruth
I️ AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!! I️ bought 2 of these. One for me, one for mom. I️ wish I️ could express my obsession with Robyn O’Brien in short, but let me just say that she is the most knowledgeable, fluent, easy to listen to individual when it comes to what is happening with our foods and what’s going on behind closed doors. Learning about what is in our food, how it’s changed from the past and what we can do to save ourselves is extremely important for everyone. If you’re not a reader, I’d suggest starting by listening to Robyn on the Tony Robbins podcast which can be found on #Spotify for FREE. Get curious!
Sharing my family’s health transformation from the TEDx stage was such an honor! And now getting to share what we learned then, and continue to learn every day, with you is my passion!

Food allergies are still a fairly new concept. Today 5.9 million American children have a food allergy. That’s 1 in every 13 children, two per classroom. If you have not listened to Robyn O’Brien’s ted talk, do it: https://youtu.be/rixyrCNVVGA or read her book: The UNhealthy Truth. • She sparked my interest to look further into what we ate—and fueled my outrage when I began reading ingredient labels. From the day I heard her podcast and read her book, I haven’t stopped searching for the best way to nourish my family and eliminate unnecessary toxins. I believe allergies today are a result of the chemicals in our food and foods not being prepared in traditional ways. It is not enough to just stop eating processed foods. We also need to eat nutrient dense foods and prepare our foods in traditional ways to preserve our gut health and our overall health. We all have to start somewhere. I challenge everyone today to read the ingredient list on the back of a packaged food you are serving your kids (or yourself). Inform yourself and be an advocate for your family and others.

Breaking my soda habit was NOT easy, but OMG was it worth it! I was so surprised that I had MORE energy when I drank more water instead. You can hear the rest of my family’s health transformation story at the #TEDx link in my bio.
This book has been a great company for the past few months, and I've been taking a sweet time reading, learning, calmly savoring every word, every thought, every lesson and every truth. #theunhealthytruth#robynobrien#awareness . .
Durante os últimos meses esse livro tem sido um grande companheiro. E eu estou lendo calmamente, aprendendo e prestando muita atenção a cada dica, detalhe e pensamento. #book#bookstagram
On my list of books to get::: Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE food- pizza, pasta, anything carb if I'm being honest. I was the girl in high school at Burger King every day after school (which btw I never gained weight back then 😳) . Life events in the past years have really opened my eyes though, to the fact that what we are putting on/in our bodies really does have an effect on us, especially over time. That we really do have an obligation to ourselves and our families to know what's in our food supply. And to do or best to make smart choices when we can. Because we really do only get this one body in our lifetime.
I love Robyn's point of view on this to take baby steps, and "don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good". And just as our kids aren't potty trained in a day, we won't change everything in a day. But we can do one thing.
And as my loving hubs teases me about buying organic "cheez-its" when the budget allows, I know this is more than a fad or marketing tool. It's simply about feeding ourselves and our families real food.
I hope you'll watch this Ted Talk... But just know you won't be able to un-learn what you'll see here.
My evening ritual...reading in bed with hot tea and my diffuser on full blast. Tonight is the holiday blend! I can't wait for my new oils to arrive. 😁😆
What is your favorite diffuser scent? Favorite evening ritual? And yes, it's only 9 Cali time...😂😜
Going through a bookshelf I found one of my old books,
What’s to Eat? The United States Department of Agriculture Yearbook 1979
Proof of the development of new foods that can resist certain diseases!! 😳
They wrote this like it was a good thing! 😡
Over the last 4 years I have learned so much about my own health and why I struggled most of my life. 🤢
As you all know, I made 1 change 4 years ago that effected everything. Most importantly I have no sign of any of my symptoms!
Do I believe it’s due to the change in my nutrition? 💯%
My favorite resource is Robyn O’Brien. Check out her TEDx talks or read The Unhealthy Truth.
Do just 1️⃣thing. 1️⃣ substitution. 1️⃣healthy choice. Remove 1️⃣ item of junk food. Try 1️⃣ new workout. To make that long lasting, lifestyle change that's going to create better health it's not removing everything that's "bad". It's about making a decision. A decision for better health and a better life for your family by making small changes overtime. The small changes will have a lasting effect.
Comment below on the #onething you are going to change today!
🍴Dinner tonight! Kid friendly, super healthy and super easy for busy families!
🔹one turkey breast (bone in)
🔹sweet potatoes wrapped in foil (also can make regular potatoes)
🔹1 cup chicken broth
🔹salt and pepper as desired
Cook on low in your crock pot for 8 hours.
And the best part...the leftovers!!! Munch on cold turkey as a snack, make turkey sandwiches or boil the meat until it falls off the bones and make soup! This is a healthy and cost effective meal your family will love!
Listening to a Podcast the other day by Tony Robbins one of his guests a lady called Robyn O'Brien said these few words as part of a bigger context but they struck a cord and something we can all learn from. None of us are or ever will be perfect and we are always our own worst critics.
It's really important to embrace who you are, to love who you are and to be happy with what you are doing. We should always try grow and educate ourselves and strive to be better than we were the day before. That is progress 🙌🏼❤️️ #fitethos
Instead of waiting to manage disease, why are we not managing our health? I'm not an expert, dietician, or doctor. But I do agree the smartest way to manage our health and the health of our families is through our food and exercise.
Food and labels are overwhelming and scary. It's scary what we put into our bodies. So I take baby steps and am making small changes so my kids and I can function at our best. I started by listening to a podcast featuring Robyn O'Brien. If you want the link let me know! Next up, her book. I'll be sharing a weekly take-away or tip that maybe you can implement into your lifestyle.
And of course, I fuel myself with my daily dose of health and exercise. #cleaneats#robynobrien#tonyrobbins#fitmom

THIS IS NOT OKAY!
Do Something about it on Child Health Day! We are taking action the week of October 3-7, and you're invited to join us. You can join our event by following the link in our profile @momsacrossamerica. You can....
*FLOOD The FDA with CALLs and EMAILs and DEMAND the Dept of Health Protect us! FDA- 1 (888) 463-6332. Google your state or county Dept of Health for the number.
*Do a Banner Drop, (meaning hang a banner on the fence), over the freeway at rush hour. This is a good action for people who can't take the whole day off but just the late afternoon.
*Invite the media, meet in the center of town, have the kids march in one big group in front and the parents and supporters in the back to your Dept of Health or City Hall. Get there before and stay til after lunch hour so they see you. The media loves kids, we love our kids, we all all want our kids to be healthy. Let's do this!
What ideas do you have for Child Health Day? #childhealthday
Thank you Robyn O'Brien for sharing a magnitude of insight regarding the harm of the food industry. I now have a better understanding of the importance and significance of what I put into my body and how it affects me. Thank you!
