Bobby Approved

Bobby Parrish, a best-selling cookbook author is a recognized kitchen and grocery shopping expert. His expertise helps simplify your shopping experience, guiding you to the highest quality and "cleanest" products.

His app, is a staple in my daily routine, so much so my kids will humorously say.... "Is that Bobby approved?"

He has revolutionized the grocery shopping experience.

Before the app, I spent countless hours scrutinizing labels and researching ingredients. Now, this app saves me precious time and effort.

Environmental Working Group (EWG)

The Environmental Working Group's (EWG) online consumer guides are an indispensable tool for informed shopping. Their innovative app allows you to scan products while shopping, saving you valuable time and ensuring informed choices. I find this tool so beneficial that I was moved to contribute to their efforts.

EWG has pioneered the first online database that rates tens of thousands of personal care and household cleaning products based on their health and safety aspects. Before purchasing any personal care or home cleaning product, I always consult this database to ensure it aligns with my health priorities.

One particular feature I recommend exploring is the Skin Deep product and ingredient database. It's an excellent resource for understanding what goes into the products you use daily.
