Good morning everyone, and thank you to ALL OF YOU who entered!  This has been the biggest giveaway on Healing Cuisine yet!  I loved reading your comments, tweets and fb messages!  And so glad to hear that some of you will be trying Seventh Generation products for the first time.  Congrats on making the switch over and hope you enjoy the product line!

I had planned to get a new recipe posted as well this morning, but we had quite the busy time getting out the door and to the clinic today, so look forward to something tasty tomorrow or this weekend.  :)  Also have some big news to share SOON from our end!  Very exciting newwwws that will be opening some new doors not only for Dave and me, but for Healing Cuisine, too!

Hope you all have a very blessed weekend, light on the snow and cold weather!  I don’t mean to brag, but it will be in the 70′s or 80′s here this weekend and sunny, so I am excited to take a few hours here and there to lay out and soak up some sun, first time since we moved down here to Orlando!  Finally going to take some Elise time and sit outside with a good book!  We’re usually out at events all weekend, morning to night, but Dave’s given me some time off on Saturday (yes!!).  I’m hoping spring comes for the rest of you soon.  Just think, gotta get thru March and it’ll be all over! :)

  1. Hi Elise! I was so excited to hear about Seventh Generation… but their products still include some harsh chemicals, including SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) – can you recommend any product lines that don’t include SLS? So far I am a giant fan of Miessence, but it is out of Autralia, so shipping/duties are costly. Thanks!

  2. Hi ZanneV! So glad to hear you have been researching your cleaning products! And while Seventh Generation is biodegradable, you are correct, they are not the cleanest most optimal choice for use around our bodies.

    I LOVE the MiEssence all purpose cleaner. You can email MiEssence to locate a representative near you. I’m assuming you live in Canada? Ask your Maximized Living chiropractor. Many of them have their own seller accounts with MiEssence and may even be able to get you a discount on a bulk order.

    Mrs. Meyers cleaning products do not use SLS. They are a step up from Seventh Generation in cleanness, are 100% biodegradable and use essential oils to scent. However, not food-grade organic like MiEssence.

    I personally make most all of my own cleaning products. One of these days I’ll get some of my recipes posted. But, a great book where I learned all my tricks from, is Easy Green Living by Renee Loux. Recipes for EVERYTHING in there as well as cleaning tips without cleansers and GREEN products to purchase. It’s fabulous. I recommend it to everyone who is ready to switch to organic cleaning products. Making your own at home is cheaper than buying and it guarantees you have food-grade products. You can also mix them up in mass so it’ll last you many many months.

    Hope this has helped. If you have specific product questions feel free to email me: I can recommend whatever Dave and I use or try to provide more direction.
