So I have a jewelry box full of stuff I’ve collected over the years… 99% of it I don’t have the tags/packaging for anymore…

Now I’m allergic to nickel…

How exactly does one go about finding out which jewelry isn’t safe anymore?? 

There’s the nail polish trick- you can use clear nail polish to seal your jewelry, and keep it from touching your skin directly… Or I figured I’d just get rid of stuff that made me itch, and if it was something I liked- replace it with higher quality metals. Or switch out french wires for nickel free ones. 

I decided on Sunday to wear a pair of earrings I hadn’t worn in a while. My whole face broke out… That’s finally feeling a little better. But my ears are still sad… 

So, in closing… I don’t recommend this method. I recommend painting with nail polish, if you have a nail polish that’s safe for you. Or upgrading. 

Yes, all that would be better…

Menus are a must! Nothing sabotages good eating intentions like the end of day tired, and no idea what’s for dinner. By planning ahead, you can have meat defrosting during the day, or know exactly what you need to pick up from the store on your way home. Take into account your busy days, and do easier/quicker meals those days (move meals around to suite your busy days)

Menus are marked Gluten Free, Paleo, or SCD depending on which diet they fit into.
