Blog Review: Earth Remedy

22 Sep

Meet January and Tommy: an “average” American couple in their 30s eating an “average” American diet of over processed foods coupled by tonnes of soda. After seeing Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and Forks Over Knives they became inspired to become vegans and got hooked on juicing! Tommy lost 40lbs in one month. That’s incredible. They also started a blog called: Earth Remedy.

The results from the way they used to eat to now have been incredible and has greatly improved their health.

What does their blog focus on?

“We will share on our blog:

  • Tried and tasty recipes
  • Information we have learned through research and personal experience
  • People we follow
  • Links we love
  • Books we read
  • Video and documentaries we watch
  • Illnesses we’ve cured
  • Personal results
  • People we’ve recruited (and they’ll share their stories too!)
  • People who follow the same lifestyle
  • Alternative doctors, foods, products
  • Personal struggles
  • Traveling and trying to find the right foods
  • Activities and exercises
  • Products we use and recommend, like our juicer!
  • Spirituality
  • Herbs we take
  • Pet health
  • Ice hockey and our cats (a special bonus!)
  • …And so much more!”
Very specific in terms of subject matter. It’s great that two people who were omnivores are really taking their health seriously and taking steps to ween off medication and change for the better. This certainly is inspiring to anyone really.
In addition to posts about their life change, they also are posting recipes! What I really like about the recipe posted is the nutritional value breakdown. I am a stickler for reading labels, so knowing the nutritional value is important in terms of what you put into your body. Bonus points for this.
It’s also pretty neat to see a couple doing this together, often you find it’s one partner who has changed and the other is slow to adapt or doesn’t at all. Kudos to both January and Tommy for doing this as an unified effort. I’m really looking forward to their juicing journey and to read about their total lifestyle change.
Welcome January and Tommy!

    Hi January! Glad you liked the post. It really is great to see people being health conscious and actually making an effort. A lot of people are wishful thinkers, but lack the dedication and ambition to pursue words into action. Good on you!

    Thanks for the kind words Denise! I’m glad you thought it was amazing, it truly is and quite inspiring. This is exactly what I wanted out of this blog; mission accomplished! 🙂
