I have been slowly changing our diets over the past year. Last year we focused on eating in more, less deep frying, batch cooking. This year we have developed a 3 phase system: Phase I (Jan - April) eat out couple times a month, start replacing meats with natural/grass feed/organic meats, buy top 12 dirty foods as organic, slowly replace foods with better alternatives.
Phase II (May - Aug) eat out one time a month, all meats bought grass feed/organic, purchase all Dirty Dozen organic. ONLY clean foods in house. Phase III (Sept - Dec) - Eating out only 2 times a quarter, continue organic meats and buying organic dirty dozen and only clean foods in house.
I have very dry skin especially so in the winter months. I read about using olive oil instead of chemical shave cream to shave your legs with. I tried it and I love it ! The blade glides well, and leaves a light touch of moisture on your legs when you are done, washes off when you jump into the shower !
Use the cheapest one you can find for shaving, use organic extra virgin for cooking though.
