Real Food Round-Up: Radiant Life in the News
I do a lot of writing about the things that go on here at Radiant Life, a whole bunch of writing. I know, I know...sometimes I get carried away with the adjectives, gushing for far too long about the pleasant sizzle of a coconut oil sauté or the synergistic healing qualities of trusted Fermented Cod Liver Oil and beautiful, golden Butter Oil. Oh, I just can't help myself! Like many of you, I am simply captivated by the grace of traditional wisdom and natural medicine. Yet, one of the most incredible things I get to do is work within an inspiring community of empowered individuals who are dedicated to spreading a message of health and happiness that goes beyond conventional approaches. So today I want to show you some ideas of how other people are using the products and resources we share at Radiant Life. For some more inspiration, visit the Ideas We Love board on pinterest!
