Who Knew Salad Could Be So Much Fun? Come to a Salad in a Jar Party and Find Out For Yourself

Do you struggle to eat enough fresh wholesome food? Join us for a Salad in a Jar Party in the Milwaukee area and find out for yourself how good you can feel when you eat real food and hang out with some really fun people. We always start with making up our salads and then sometimes finish with a dance party and karaoke sing off.

If you are ready to make some healthy changes join us Wednesday January 8th, Wednesday January 15th, or Friday January 24th. These events will all be posted to facebook and highlighted on the Organic Growth Coach page. https://www.facebook.com/TheOrganicGrowthCoach/

Please make sure to register on eventbrite and look there for the Google doc link to see the ingredient list so you know what to bring along to share. What’s so nice about these gatherings is that we each bring just a couple ingredients and leave with salads for the week with tons of different ingredients. It makes great sense economically and its always nice to know you are not alone in your quest to eat healthier.

Eventbrite 1-24-20 https://tom-salad-1-24-20.eventbrite.com

The agenda will go something like this;

Everyone arrives (on time) at 6:30 ish and grabs a glass of wine, or another beverage.

We all place our prepared ingredients on the table with our serving utensils so people can easily fill their jars.

We take a few minutes to introduce the Shred10 plan for detoxing your body using whole food and reasonable lifestyle changes.

We each grab a jar (or whatever containers you have available) and start moving around the table to fill up our salads for the week. Once you are done, you are free to go or stick around and enjoy some conversation and camaraderie. Below is a pick of some salads my friend Suzy and I made up recently. Yum-me!!

Some cool healthy peeps with their salads! 🙂

Hay of the Day + Philosophy of Louise Hay

philosophy of Louise Hay

Have you heard of Louise Hay and the idea that thoughts become things? I love this concept and truly believe it. Louise wrote a beautiful book entitled “You Can Heal Your Life” and I own a copy. I am sharing the philosophy of Louise Hay page with you in hopes that it will inspire you to make positive changes in your life and also encourage me to do the same.

I just adore Louise for all the great things she brought to this world. She transitioned 2 years ago and lived to be 90 years old. I wish I had the chance to meet her during this lifetime. Maybe next time around? Here is a link to her obituary if you want to get a feel for her. Louise Hay Obit.

Today I would like to share her page that introduces her philosophy. In my book it is page 9. She says that we create every so-called illness in our body. We suffer from guilt, self-hatred and the many other maladies that these past patterns manifest in our bodies. Letting go of resentment, criticism and guilt can dissolve even the worst of offenders, even cancer she said.

We must release the past and forgive everyone… including ourselves. Wow, that’s a tough one! We must begin to love ourselves and practice self-approval and self-acceptance if we wish to experience positive changes.

Louise says that every thought we think is creating our future and we are responsible for all of our experiences. Responsibility can be hard to swallow since we all seem to like blaming others for all the things that go wrong in our lives. She believed that the point of power is now in the present moment and that all thoughts are just that…only thoughts and they can be changed.

Isn’t this a nice thought? “When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.”

Stay tuned for more posts from Louise’s books or maybe a book published by Hay House. There are so many good ones to share!

Philosophy of Louise Hay

Make it a great day…only you can make up your mind to do anything. KC 😊

Sunscreen More Deadly Than Sun Exposure?

Before you run out into the warm weather (finally!) and get sunburned, check out this Dr Mercola article. He is THE MAN when it comes to natural health. His article questions what is worse, sun exposure or sunscreen? The consensus is that most sunscreens use far more toxic chemicals that could be more deadly than the risk of cancer from sun exposure.

Natural Sunlight Is Far and Away the Best Way to Get Your Vitamin D! There is a delicate balance depending on your skin type. You need the good rays (UVB) for healthy Vitamin D production, but you don’t want to stay in the sun too long and get burned by the damaging rays (UVA).

Read full article here;  https://products.mercola.com/summer-essentials/?

My favorite take-away is the list of chemicals to avoid.  Here is a snipet;

If Your Sunscreen Contains Any of These Chemicals That I Consider Dangerous and Potentially Life Threatening, Do Yourself a BIG Favor…

Harmful Chemicals in a Sunscreen
Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it contains any of these chemicals I consider potentially harmful.

Dump it now.

Yes, that’s right. Toss your sunscreen in the trash if it contains any of these questionable chemicals:

  • Para amino benzoic acid…
  • Octyl salicyclate…
  • Avobenzone…
  • Oxybenzone…
  • Cinoxate…
  • Padimate O…
  • Dioxybenzone…
  • Phenylbenzimidazole…
  • Homosalate…
  • Sulisobenzone…
  • Menthyl anthranilate…
  • Trolamine salicyclate…
  • Octocrylene…

And, oh yes, let me not forget…

Potentially harmful chemicals such as dioxybenzone and oxybenzone (two chemicals I just mentioned) are some of the most powerful free radical generators known to man!

So if your sunscreen contains dioxybenzone, oxybenzone, or any of the other chemicals I just revealed, I highly recommend you switch to a formula that is safe and healthy for your skin.


I plan to visit a local pharmacy and see if they carry anything that is “safe” for your skin. I bet not, but am always hopeful.

I would recommend following Dr Mercola if you agree with his basic principles;  https://shop.mercola.com/pages/dr-mercolas-six-key-principles

I get regular email updates and always learn something new.  I’m a firm believer in always adding to my toolbox of knowledge.

Where Does Your Food Come From?

Tomorrow is #CSADay. http://csaday.info/

When you hear someone ask, “where does your food come from?” you might want to respond with something sassy like “DUH, the grocery store.”

My challenge to you is to learn what is really in packaged processed goods (most are not very good at all) and consider eating more fresh fruits and vegetables.  I can help if you have no idea where to start.

If you are familiar with CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), consider signing up for a food share this season. Tomorrow is #CSADay and its a perfect time to sign up to get real food on a regular basis. Most local farmers deliver to a set location on a certain day of the week. You receive a share of whatever they produce each week.  This is a fabulous way to get seasonal local food. Since the variety of fresh food changes each week, it’s always exciting to see what shows up in your farm fresh box of food.

If you have no idea where to start and you are not familiar with any local farm CSAs, consider attending the Local Farmer Open House. It’s happening in Milwaukee on Saturday March 10th at the Urban Ecology Center Riverside Park. (1500 E. Park Pl. Milwaukee, WI 53211)

Want to Shred Your Old Health Habits? Join Shred10 on Sept 11

Shred10 people

We are looking for a few people who are ready to jumpstart their health and shred their unhealthy habits.  Many people find it difficult to stay on track using the many crazy diets and exercise plans they have tried in the past. We’ve been there. You are so desperate to lose weight, you will try anything. All those fad diets can do some major damage to your body. What you really need is REAL food so your body can function at optimal performance. What I mean by REAL food is fruits and vegetables that your body recognizes and knows how to digest.

This is why Shred10 works so well.  You have an easy-to-follow system which encourages you to eat good clean organic food, rich in essential nutrients. You have all the tools, coaches, recipes, support and guidance you need to succeed.  You know that anybody can handle 10 days of change, right? We know you can do it because we have gone through it ourselves and will be right there with you along the way.

Have you always wanted to hire a health coach but didn’t think you could afford it? This is one of those positive health plans you CAN DO. There are lots of options price-wise, so it will fit into any budget. What price are you paying in the long run when you continue to feed your body junk food?

If you are ready to make a clean start towards real health, visit the link here;  http://intro.shred10.com/  then email or text KC for more information Karinmconway@gmail.com or text 414-687-9900.

(in a capsule or chewable form) They make it easy to get a plethora of fruits and vegetables in your system easily, and at a fraction of the cost of buying all those foods!

You CAN DO it. Let me know if you’re ready and joining us for the Shred10 on September 11th to kick some old habits to the curb and welcome in more energy, feeling great, and living a healthier lifestyle.
