Earth Friendly Body, Home and Living Products (Ecostore Product Review)

When you start becoming aware of what your putting in your body, you’ll begin to take a closer look at what your putting on your body and what products you use around your home. Once I started doing a bit of research into what effects these unpronounceable ingredients have on our bodies and our environment, my eyes grew big and I actually had to take a moment.

Macadamia Nut ‘Cheese’

Before my massive lifestyle changes, I was never a great fan of regular cheese. Yeah I used to eat it, but it wasn’t a necessity. Obviously my pizza’s back in the day used to be laced with the stuff, but other than that, I didn’t really consume much of the stuff. I did, however, love feta cheese. I think it’s something about the saltiness and the texture that really turned my taste buds on. Only recently have I made the decision to stop eating it, purely for the fact that it, like other cheese, is pretty much rot. Yup, no more feta for me please and thank you!
