A Wake-Up Story

Most of the time I like to share recipes that we enjoy in our gluten-free journey, but today I want to share a video, A Wake-Up Story, by Healthy Child Healthy World that touches me and reaches deep within my soul.

I am one of those people who got the wake-up call that made me realize the devastating effects of chemicals and the toxic load we all, yes all, carry in our bodies. Environmental illness is real, but we can change this world, one home at a time, by sharing friend to friend
ideas to make our homes and world a healthier place.


  1. I tried but can't get the video to play. I also went to (http://awakeupstory.healthychild.org/) but I couldn't get the video to play there either... that is odd.

    I will try again later.

    I like Healthy Child , Healthy World - too.

    You provide such great information on your blog, Debbie! The brownies look really good too.

  2. Hi Debbie,
    I did get the movie to play and it gave me chills up and down my body and tears in my eyes. It saddens me so deeply how many toxins are surrounding us every day and affecting the health of our children.

    Thank you for posting this video - I'm going to put it on my facebook page.
    Have a great day!

  3. I got it to play. I love it. It literally made me cry. So glad that healthychild.org is bringing people together to make a difference.

  4. Sarah & Heather - I'm glad it is working and you both got to see it. The first time I saw it, I had to watch it over and over and still do. It makes me cry too. It is shocking the chemicals that we can not see, and sometimes not even smell. Usually, I can smell things most others don't. I'm like the canary in the coal mine and my husband says it's time for this canary to sing!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. I will be making some changes around here and passing the word on.



I am made richer by your being here. Please leave us a comment.
