“Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.  They will be yours for food.”

-Genesis 1:29

I love the idea of a Genesis, a new beginning. The process of change can often be difficult and feel unrewarding but, if we stick with it, in the end we have something beautiful.   We invite you to explore the possibility of renewed health with living foods.  Take some time to look around and see what we have to inspire you:

It’s important to supplement, even if you aren’t eating RAW.  When looking for a reliable supplement, you should consider the following criteria: Are the supplements whole foods based? (meaning they are made from natural food sources and are as close to their natural state as possible), Is the company is reputable? (check with the BBB), Are the products thoroughly researched?, Are the products independently tested?, Do the products come with a money back guarantee?

One company that fits this criteria is GNLD International.  They are a 50 year old company who’s motto is, “Based in Nature, Backed by Science.”  They have a wide variety of supplements, vitamins,  and herbals to fit your lifestyle and offer a full money back guarantee.  To ensure that their products meet the highest possible standards, GNLD has its own Scientific Advisory Board and works with scientists from all over the world who make up the Health Professionals Council.  They have an A+ rating with the BBB and are licensed with the FDA.

They are the company we choose to supplement with, and from time to time we will feature the products we recommend to help balance out your nutritional needs.
