Finding Clean bio picture

    When my son started having allergic reactions to multiple foods, I tried to find reasons to explain what was happening. After much research, I discovered that our food system is broken. Beyond that discovery, I also learned that we are exposed to toxic chemicals in almost every aspect of our daily lives. I was overwhelmed with information and frustrated by the things I couldn't control. One day I found myself crying in the grocery store, reading label after label, knowing that I didn't want to feed my family this way any longer.

Finding Clean is a way for me to share my discoveries with the world, and to show people that change doesn't have to be so hard.

Grocery Shopping

Many people have asked me how I grocery shop, so I thought I would share.  When we began this transition to “real” food and non-GMO, I was very overwhelmed at the grocery store (namely, Publix).  Everything that was familiar to me was no longer something I wanted to consume.  I still wanted to have bread, […]
