January 20 2015 – Find Balance
We usually think of our health from the inside first. When we think about leading a healthier life we think about eating right and exercising, which is a great start, but it is just that: a great start. In order to stay healthy we need to nourish our body inside and outside. We need to be conscious of everything we eat and everything we put on our skin and the consequences our choices have in the big picture of our environment. A common misconception about our skin for example is that what we put on our skin stays on it, but in reality our skin is a permeable tissue. Around 64% of everything we apply on our skin goes into our blood flow and our organs process it. So yes, our organs end up processing both what we eat and what we apply on our skin; therefore, the importance of knowing, being conscious and choosing organic whenever possible becomes crucial.
The most wonderful realization when we met GoMacro, right after falling in love with the taste and ingredients of their MacroBars, is that we are both family-owned businesses advocating a lifelong journey of nourishment and health. Your body will not work properly or at its best if it is not well nourished. It was wonderful to see how many ingredients we have in common, and all of them USDA certified organic! Our commitment to our personal health and well-being needs to extend to the environment’s health and well-being by offering only USDA certified organic products and using sustainable packaging. By partnering with GoMacro we are making a commitment to our health, and all other beings benefit as well. Choosing organic, cruelty free and plant-based products promotes balance within your body and to our environment.
Leading a healthy life should always include both what we take into our bodies and what we apply to our bodies. Thank you for caring and choosing organic. Check out GoMacro and try their delicious, organic, vegan MacroBars.
