I finally got one. I'll let everyone know how/if it changes anything. I hope I don't break out--but I shouldn't. It said it will make your hair and skin softer in a few days.

Unrelated but equally exciting are the cookies! They are baking right now and I can't wait to eat them. It is my treat. Since I've been on this anti-candida diet I have been craving both sugar and carbs....something I never do. It's odd. They said you may have cravings because the yeast and bacteria need sugars and carbs to survive...I dunno. I've been good for a while, but I let myself have a treat every once in a while. I'm sure you all really care about this, lol.

Anyway, the cookies have no hydrogenated oils, trans fatty acids, preservatives, artificial colors,flavors, additives, bleached flours or sugars, no synthetic sugars, cottonseed or palm kernel oils, and no irradiated ingredients. The only caveat for some is they may contain gluten, but I'm able to have that.

LOL, THAT makes a lot more sense once you actually read the post. ;-)


OK, so dish, what brand is your shower filter and what brand are your cookies?

Thanks

I'm sure the title looked odd SweetJade wink.gif

Okay, the water filter is Enviro Products. I got it at my health food store and in case you are wondering it was so easy to install.

The cookies are "Wholly Healthy." They were oatmeal raisin and they were yummy. They tasted better than "regular" cookies..not as weird tasting as the regular cookies with all those chemicals and stuff you can't pronounce as ingredients. dry.gif

Sometimes, when treating myself, I buy these at the health food store:

They are damn good. The trail mix cookies are my fave.

I love my shower filter. I got the paragon filter from home depot. I looked into the enviro brand but the paragon and the enviro both use the exact same filtering method and the paragon is $19.99 compared to the $40 for enviro so I went with the former.

It really does have an effect on your skin. You know that feeling that you sometimes get out of the shower, that tight skin feeling? Well, I used to have that a lot right after showering but that's gone now, my hair is nicer now too, more bright and my skin is healing nicely(Although for the most part, I attribute both of these things to the liver flushes), the filter still helps.

Having a shower filter is definitely a plus for better looking skin. In the past i washed with filtered water and it did make a difference. I just started to wash my face with filtered water again. I guess i better look into that shower filter which would make things easier.

BTW, there's really no such thing as a healthy cookie. The correct term would be less unhealthy cookies smile.gif.

That's not a cookie. It's just carrots cut up and clumped into the shape of a cookie.
