I've been on the search for a while for a good baking-soda free, aluminum free natural deodorant. Some readers were not happy that a previous pick of mine contained kaolin clay (which can contain aluminum) so I have been on the look out for another option my baking soda sensitive friends would enjoy. Read on to learn more about a great option I found- Little Seed Farm's Activated Charcoal Deodorant Cream.Read More

One of the biggest complaints I hear from parents who want to go plant-based is they can't get the whole family on board, but most especially the kiddos.
If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "How do I get them to stop eating cheese?!"
Exasperated plant-based parents unite! I've pulled together a collection of 5 plant-based school lunches (that kids will actually eat) to show you how easy it is to get kids interested in a more fruit and veggie filled diet. Read on for the full list of fast favorites!Read More
If you've seen the Netflix documentary, "What the Health," there's a decent chance you've been convinced to make some changes to your dietary habits (or scared into making said changes).
Footage of factory farms will do that to a person.
But aside from the more controversial aspects of the film, I think everyone can agree more fruits and veggies are a pretty good idea for better overall health. And whether or not you want to just start out by working in a Meatless Monday each week or go full board vegan, I have the ONLY tip you'll need to make switching things up super simple. Read on and see how to get started, and grab my recipe for a FAST, delicious pumpkin peanut curry.Read More
This is my favorite food time of the year. Brunches abound as spring sets in and we come out of hibernation (or here in Arizona, prepare to go into it).
Whether you are hosting a fab soiree or just bringing a dish to one, the key to this time of year is easy breezy. And my friend Sarah Garone at A Love Letter to Food has knocked it out of the park with her perfect party appetizer Mediterranean 7 Layer Dip recipe! See her recipe and my serving suggestions in today's post.Read More
I have suffered from migraine headaches for nearly 20 years. Around the age of 18, I started having migraines with aura (which means I get visual disturbances alerting me that a migraine is on deck in T minus 30 minutes. Lucky me).
But for the last 4 months, I've been without a migraine headache. I've discovered ways to reduce, and dare I say STOP, my migraines- without meds.
Jessica never imagined that by just attending a single post-natal workout class that her life would change forever.
"I didn't have a lot of friends in the area who had kids. After my daughter was born, I wanted to make friends, get moving, and get back to myself."
Like many new moms, Jessica was just happy to get out of the house. She had no idea that signing up for a Stroller Strides class would quickly became so much more.Read More
Meatless Mondays should be easy. Meatless Mondays during Spring Break should be easier. And since this time of year has me dreaming of a Mediterranean vacation anyway, why not channel that into dinnertime?
Today's recipe is one of those set it and forget it meals- read on to see the full recipe.Read More
You may or may not already know that chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse. High in Omega 3 fatty acids and fiber, they can help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol. Aside from that, chia seeds can unleash their antioxidant power to fight free radical damage and inflammation in the body.
But how in the world do you eat them? See the super simple recipe in today's post.Read More
As you may have noticed, Oh My Nosh added Beautycounter to our line-up of trusted brands recently- your response has been absolutely ENERGIZING! I am so pleased so many Noshers have had such positive experiences with Beautycounter's product offering and it's been a complete joy to be a part of the movement, encouraging women (AND men) to demand safer skincare options to protect their health.
Beautycounter turns four this week on March 4th! To celebrate, I'm offering a special giveaway to OMN friends and family (this is NOT a Beautycounter deal- you'll only find it here). It's good this week only so check it out!Read More
I know what you think of when you hear the words "cruise ship dining." Buffets. Bars. Ice cream at every meal.
And if you have special dietary needs or just don't want to go completely off the deep end, a cruise vacation can seem a little intimidating. Wouldn't it be great if someone could sneak aboard and show you the menus ahead of time?
In the word's of Maui from Disney's Moana, "You're welcome." Read on to access menus and tips for eating well aboard Disney Cruise Line's Disney Wonder.Read More
Dejected after my first few attempts to make my own natural deodorant, I dragged my smelly self to the local health food store to sample their wares. Many of the items on the shelves are NOT safer alternatives (ahem, Arm and Hammer and Tom's of Maine) and after reading over a dozen labels, I selected a couple of lines to try...only to be frustrated by my now patchouli scented funk.
But then I discovered by Best Purchase of 2016. Read on to learn more about switching to natural deodorants (and see more great picks in this Best of 2016 link up).Read More
Okay, so it's 5:45 and you're just getting home. You (and possibly your tribe) are starving. That crock pot/ Instant Pot meal you thought you were going to throw in this morning is still a frozen brick and you have been stressing all day about what to make for dinner.
Even cereal sounds good right about now.

Okay, you're not going to believe this but last year at our family Thanksgiving, this dairy-free pumpkin pie beat out a traditional pumpkin pie in a blind taste test.
And with the surprise ingredient in the filling, everyone got an extra (low-fat) helping of protein. What's the secret? Read on to find out.Read More
I love pot pies but I don't love how long it takes to make them. They also tend to be pretty heavy on calories without really being all that filling. And for all my friends who are worried about carbs, pot pies are full of the low fiber kind you should stay away from.
But my version gives you all the warm fuzzies of a home cooked meal- without all the heft. AND it only takes 15 minutes of actual work.Read More
