I’ve juggled many hats in my life. I’ve done traditional sales, quality control, taught at risk kids, and had the mom life while taking care of elderly parents. A few years ago I started a baking business, PaleoLove Company, which was an outgrowth of my daughter’s autoimmune illness. That led to me going back to school to become a Functional Nutrition Counselor. Through my education I learned how important our skin is to detoxifying our bodies. Cue dramatic music in walks Crystal Wilson, who introduced me to Beautycounter. I wasn’t really looking for skin care, but I am a curious person so I listened. Beautycounter intrigued me, I finally sampled the products and was sold. I first became a client, then decided to become a consultant.
This weekend I made a new kind of granola. It's amazing at least my husband and I think so, the teen not so much. This granola is on the savory side. It would be great on top of brie with touch of onion jam. Since there are dairy allergies in our house we have started using Jules Foods cashew brie, which can be purchased at Vida Pour Tea in Greensboro located on State Street in Irving Park. I love this sweet tea shop, Sarah has several varieties of hand crafted teas, in addition to carrying locally made baked goods, kefir, kombucha and coffee. You can also find sleep, baby, feminine & masculine care products. In addition to ceramics, natural dental, honey, ayurveda, and plenty of tea-ware of course. If you are local go check out her shop and tell the girls behind the counter Mary sent you. Otherwise you can visit her online.
Many of you already know I joined Beautycounter this past summer. They manufacture skincare that is free of 1800+ chemicals that are known to be harmful to you and your loved ones. As we entered 2021 I want you to be aware of greenwashing that many manufacturers participate in.
Greenwashing means that a company markets their products as natural, pure, safe, clean, but they still contain harmful chemicals.
This one should be put in the "Hall of Shame".
