35 Real Food & Low Tox Living Travel Tips

I've spent 48.5 hours in the air in the past 2.5 weeks and 12 hours in waiting lounges, thus the real food & low tox travel tips. It was an amazing solo trip visiting family in NYC and Paris. How lucky to have such a good reason to make the trek and enjoy life on the other side of the world for a couple of weeks! It can be difficult to stay healthy through the airport lounges and up in the air, if you're not prepared and if you've got any food intolerances or allergies? Good luck! Even if … [Read more...]
