Last year, my husband and I decided that we wanted to live life just a little bit slower. Even though we were living in the suburbs, every day just felt a little too fast paced for us. So what did we do? Something kind of extreme for some people. We sold our home and moved out to a very rural area of South Carolina. We are surrounded by farms and cotton fields, and the closest grocery store is almost 30 minutes away. This was not an easy decision, but we wanted to give “country living” a try. We knew life would no longer be convenient, but we were willing to

The Danger with Grains

Do you know what grains do to your health and waistline? I know you might be thinking: Wait a minute, Isabel! I just FINALLY converted my family to the “whole grain” bread and the “whole grain” crackers and the “whole grain” pasta for Tuesday night spaghetti… and now you’re going to tell me ALL GRAINS are bad? Oh no… Well, not exactly, but here’s the deal. The supermarket aisles and daytime game-show commercials are now jam-packed with ads for “healthier,” “whole grain” options of commonly consumed foods. But don’t think that these manufacturers have suddenly decided that our health is more important than their profits! Let me explain why “whole

Pick Your Own Apples (and Pumpkins and Kale and Peppers)!

This past Saturday, Jeff and Beth (our CEO and Sales Manager) were looking for something fun to do. After some quick online research, they found a “You Pick” organic farm called Paradise Valley Orchards, located in Paradise, Utah.

Here’s Beth with more about their experience at Paradise Farms… When we pulled up

Lose weight for someone ELSE (if you can’t lose it for YOU)

Some days when I’m looking through my Facebook feed or just doing my regular research on the Internet, I am faced with the burning question in my brain: With all of the diet programs available, why are so many people still struggling with their weight and their health? I’m not the first person to ask this question, and I sure won’t be the last, but upon asking this simple question to some family and friends, here are just a few responses I received: It’s too hard to make myself a priority with all the other things I do each day. Healthy food takes more time to make and I’m already

Feeding your kids can be tricky…

Meal Planning for a 1-Year-Old by Andy (Beyond Diet Graphic Designer) I was so excited when my son turned 6 months so he could start eating something other than milk. I did all the online research, made homemade purees, and bought only the organic baby foods with no artificial ingredients…and it failed. He hated all of it. On a good day, I could maybe get him to eat a little sweet potato or apple. On a bad day, he spit everything out. So I figured “he must just not be ready for real food yet.” I thought that if I just kept trying at least once a day, he would
