115. Where to Start with Natural Living, Cooking from Scratch, Holistic Health | Elizabeth Parsons of Purely Parsons


It can be overwhelming to figure out where to start in your natural living journey.  I get asked all the time, “Where should I start?”  On today’s episode, I am talking to Elizabeth Parsons of Purely Parsons about this exact question.  We have both been living a natural lifestyle for over a decade, and if there is anything we have learned, it’s that this is truly a process.  It’s unrealistic to overhaul our entire way of life overnight, but there are so many small changes we can make gradually over time that will add up to a new lifestyle.  I’m so grateful Elizabeth joined me for this conversation.  As a homeschooling, homesteading mama of five and pediatric nurse, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this topic.  Whether you are just getting started or have been living this way for many years, I hope some of the information shared in this episode serves as the catalyst for you to take the next step in your natural living journey.

In this episode, we cover:

- Starting small by making easy swaps in your home

- What resources we used to start learning and researching

- The importance of whole foods in natural living

- How we handle criticism from others about this lifestyle

- Success stories of healing our bodies naturally, apart from allopathic medicine

- What foods you can start making today in your home

- The most important items in Elizabeth’s wellness toolbox
