Your local farmers market is a great place to get to know a farmer and find a good source for meats. In my area, I go to the Grapevine Farmers Market and get meat from Hudspeth Farm or to the Coppell Farmers Market and get meat from Rehoboth Ranch. They are very comparable - both are excellent!!!
Farm to Fork Foods - Natural food co-op in Arlington, TX. Great source of quality meats and other things.

We are bombarded with artificial energy waves from technology and electricity. This is not natural and it interferes with the body's function. It's like static on a radio station - or noise at a party so you can't hear the person beside you.

It is ESSENTIAL to ONLY see a dentist who is holistic and/or biological. Even if you are only getting a cleaning and aren't having mercury fillings removed, if you are in a typical dental office it is full of toxic mercury vapor. Check out IAOMT.org for a list near you.

These are some of the websites where I look for recipes and tips. BUT beware - some of these people use different eating plans for different purposes. You will have to APPLY the knowledge you have!!
www.earlytorise.com (great burst training!!!! But you'll have to adapt it to our method: 6-8 cycles each 20-seconds on 20+-seconds off
www.healinggourmet.com but beware - alot of her posted recipes require mixes that she sells - but her information is good!!
What I use: (many recipes are listed in our recipes page)
to clean inside the toilet - put a few tablespoons of vinegar in it and scrub with the toilet brush
to clean outside the toilet, the bathroom countertop, and spots on the carpet - I mix about 1 cup vinegar with 4 cups of water in a spray bottle. Sometimes to clean the carpet I'll sprinkle some baking soda first, then the vinegar makes it fizz and lift the dirt/stain out. We spilled a glass of blueberry whey shake once and it came completely out of our beige carpet using soda and vinegar, after picking out A L L the little blueberries:(
to clean the tub and shower - I spray with the vinegar/water spray listed above, then sprinkle baking soda on the wet tub and scrub with a rag. Sometimes I put a drop of essential oils in it to make it smell good, especially one of the citrus oils OR - look on our recipes page for "soft scrub." That's easier to use than sprinkling baking soda.
to clean stainless steel pans - make a paste with baking soda and water and let it set a few minutes
in my mop water - a squirt of dishwashing liquid and/or a few tablespoons of vinegar in my mop bucket
as air freshener - a few drops of essential oils in a spray bottle of water, may add some vodka and baking soda
to clean furniture - I usually dust with a microfiber towel; if I need to really polish, condition, or clean the wood, I put a drop of lemon and/or cinnamon oil in some olive oil
for sunscreen, my current bottle is from www.mercola.com
for perfume, I use a dab of essential oils - they are nourishing and completely non-toxic
makeup: foundation and blush and eye shadows: Afterglow, from our shopping page
mascara and lipstick and eyeliners and eyebrow pencil: ZuZu from the healthfood store
To clean around the house - stains, goo, etc - keep a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide and another of plain white vinegar. Spray both, let it soak, clean. It's best not to mix the two together in the same spray bottle.
I don't use hairspray, but I've been told these are good:
