🌿 I am an enthusiastic advocate of all things healthy and holistic. My passion is to encourage  people to nourish their bodies and nurture their souls in order to live life fully, inside out. 

💚 My commitment is to only post reviews about products that I have researched and used myself, and to share unbiased, honest and trustworthy opinions. When companies want our hard earned money we deserve quality, value and no green-washing gimmicks, right?

🛒 Sometimes there are products that really stand out and have become a favourite of mine. I have highlighted those ones on my profile page where you can order them to try for yourself. (*Shop creation currently under construction.)

👱‍♀️ About me: I believe in lifelong learning and healthy doses of shenanigans. I love heart-stopping adventures, globe trotting our glorious planet, and giving back through sport event volunteering. I am a Master of Social Work, Certified Holistic Nutritionist and all 'round academic nerd.  

🍁 I reside in the Toronto area with my husband and special needs rescue cat, Miss Lucy.

What the Kale?! Kaley’s Kale Chips!

Product: Kaley’s Kale Chips (Solar Raw Food) Review: @HolisticJudith Are you a ‘kale massager’?

Just sayin’. In fairness,...
