Did you know there are approximately 10,500 chemicals commonly used in skincare and beauty products?
More importantly, according to the EWG (Environmental Working Group) only 13% of these have been tested for safety over the past 30 years? Finding that out was a kind of ‘what the?!’ moment for me.

This is a super simple, mildly flavored ‘Thai inspired’ Chicken Soup.
Our little guy was sick over the weekend. So, out came the arsenal to help our immune systems! Lots of greens, garlic, ginger, turmeric, lemon and chicken broth which luckily I’d made just during the week.
