Podcast chat with Laura Wright from The First Mess

Laura Wright is the creator of the vibrant plant based blog The First Mess.  She lives in the Niagara region of southern Ontario and attended culinary school, but learned considerably more about food from her travels, working in restaurants, and growing up entrenched in agriculture.  Her blog is packed with all the things she loves: cooking with natural and plant-based foods, eating seasonally, and sharing wholesome meals with the people she loves.  She lives simply and is passionate about cooking and staying connected to the earth. You simply cannot visit her website without being inspired to make something delicious.  Some of our favorites include her Hearty Mushroom and Beet Bolognese and Sweet Potato Pecan Tacos with Cashew Sour Cream.  A meal is nothing to take for granted, and Laura’s blog is a reflection of that simple idea.  In this episode we discuss her early years growing up around fresh produce and learning the value of hard work.  She tells us about her journey to becoming plant based and the process of creating and growing her popular blog.  Listen in and enjoy our conversation with Laura.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade and Medically Endorsed

30% Off Use Code: WEGETTOKNOW

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed.  All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements?  Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies?  They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity. 

When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best.   I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
