Healthy Living Made Easy
Have you ever thought, “Living a healthy, nontoxic lifestyle seems like a lot of work? Can healthy living made easy even exist?” Even for those that are savvy in the ways of healthy living, sometimes navigating new ingredients found on labels can be over whelming and time consuming. So if you’re looking for a little extra help the Environmental Working Group has made navigating these issues a breeze. Besides having a ton of information on their website www.ewg.org, they created a free app. It allows you to search by using the product name, scan the barcode or browse by categories. This app makes healthy living choices, pertaining to food and personal care products, so much easier!
Say you’re at the market and some new food caught your eye. Instead of trying to guess if its a healthy choice, just open the healthy living app to check its rating. Food is rated on a scale of 1-10; 1 being the best and 10 the worst. They rate the products based on three elements: nutrition, ingredient concerns and degree of processing. The database includes more than 80,000 foods, 5,000 ingredients and 1,500 brands.
Personal care products are rated the same way as food with a safety reference tool, on a 1-10 scale. They have safety ratings for over 80,000 products. Obviously, you don’t use 80,000 products but on average the Environmental Working Group estimates a person uses an average of 10 products a day. If you find a product you want to buy that is verified as reputable, it will link to the EWG shop on Amazon allowing a portion of the sale to support more research.
So lets make healthy decisions easier to make…download the free healthy living app today to truly see how healthy living can be made easy!
