This podcast is brought to you by Thrive Market. I’ve been using this company for years, ever since they first opened and I know many of you have been too, but I wanted to make sure you know about a couple things that make them even more awesome. First, they have a really easy to use app that makes ordering easy. I use this all the time… download and try it out at the link below. Second, they have a bunch of secret free gifts with purchase for members only! I check back a few times a week because they’ve had some of my favorite things as a free gift with purchase. My strategy is to add things to my cart in the app as I think of them or as we run out, then once I hit the threshold for free shipping and the free gift, I order when its a gift that I would use. And finally, make sure to check out the Thrive Market brand when you’re on the app or website. They now have their own line of really high quality products at really great prices. This is now my go-to for pantry staples like grain-free flours, baking soda, nuts, etc and for sardines, tuna and canned goods, and even for diapers. Find out more about all of these and get an extra discount on your first order at thrivemarket.com/katie
This podcast is brought to you by Ready, Set, Food!, a new company acting on important new research about how food allergies form in children. We all know that this problem is on the rise, and most of us know someone who has a child with food allergies, or have had this experience ourselves. There are many theories for this and certainly many problems that need to be addressed like gut health and immune support. Ready, Set, Food! is taking the cutting edge research and science and using it in a practical way to help babies and children avoid food allergies in the first place. The most up to date studies are showing that carefully calculated early exposure in the right amounts can stop many cases of food allergies! Ready, Set, Food! makes this easy with a simple system that can be added to breastmilk, formula, or baby’s first foods to give incremental and calculated exposure to the top allergens like peanuts, egg, and milk. When used as directed, this can reduce the chance of allergies by up to 80% and it is recommended and overseen by many of the nation’s top pediatricians.
