Links to Love

Here are some great links to sites that influence and inspire us.

Blogs:

Web Sites:

  • A Campaign for Safe Cosmetics – Over the past decade, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and their allies have analyzed hundreds of personal care products at laboratories. Their partners at Environmental Working Group have built the world’s largest database of chemicals in cosmetics, Skin Deep, which analyzes 68,000 cosmetic ingredients using definitive government, industry, and academic sources. This research indicates that many personal care products – from deodorants and lotions, to make-up and even baby shampoos – contain chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, learning disabilities, skin problems, and other health effects.

  • A Campaign for Real Milk – find real milk in your state
  • All Recipes – An archive of Cooking Light Recipes

  • Eating Well Magazine – Food and health magazine featuring healthy recipes, nutrition and diet tips, cooking techniques, and seasonal suggestions
  • Eat Wild – Getting nutrition from modern food
  • Epicurious – Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazine’s recipes
  • Jaime’s Home Cooking – Jaime Oliver’s dream is to see everyone cooking good food from scratch and learning new ways to get creative in the kitchen. But the truth is we’re still a long way from that becoming reality. As a nation, we’ve reached a point where the lack of food knowledge and cooking skills is having a really negative impact on our health and life expectancy. To cut a long story short, for the first time in history, younger generations are expected to live shorter lives than their parents, because of poor diet and a lack of food skills.
  • Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution – “Imagine a world where children were fed tasty and nutritious, real food at school from the age of 4 to 18. A world where every child was educated about how amazing food is, where it comes from, how it affects the body and how it can save their lives”. – Jamie Oliver
  • Jaime Oliver’s Ministry of Food – Our mission is to empower, educate and inspire as many people as possible to love and enjoy good food.
  • Livestrong – A non-profit organization that supports people in managing and surviving cancer. The site also lists healthy recipes.
  • Local Table – a local food and farm guide for Middle Tennessee local products
  • Skin Deep Cosmetics Database – Find out how safe your cosmetics and skincare products are!
  • Spark People and Recipe Calculator
  • Tennesseans for Raw Milk – Find raw milk shares
  • The Non-GMO Project – List of non-GMO products

Product Web Sites:

  • Bower’s Farm – a farm in Ethridge, TN raising grass-fed beef and pork without the use of hormones or antibiotics
  • Bragg Live Food – Paul, and his daughter, Patricia, have been health pioneers for decades. When the ‘engineered fast food’ products of science and industry had captured the attention of most Americans, Paul C. Bragg campaigned for a diet and lifestyle that focused on natural live foods and a healthy regime for a vital and long life. These ideas, based around natural and organic foods, are gaining praise and acceptance worldwide.
