Hi, and welcome to InstaGreen Baby. I’m so glad you’re here.
My name is Debbie
I’m a mum and a writer, and I live in the beautiful Algarve with my husband, Miguel, and my gorgeous 18 month old son, Jesse.
I guess you could say I’m an older mum. I had Jesse when I was 38, with a little help from science, after 5 years of trying to fall pregnant naturally. During that time I went on a mission to find out what could be preventing us from conceiving.
I took a course in nutrition, well aware that what I was putting into my body was extremely important. As I learnt about all the chemicals and pesticides used in food production I started to think about all the other products that get into our system. The creams we rub into our skin, the perfumes that we breathe into our lungs. I couldn’t believe what I found.
That’s when I decided that I needed to detox my life.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no where near the beautiful earth mamas on Instagram that I aspire to, in their flowing white dresses, chasing their kids through enchanted forests. Don’t think I even own a white dress. But I am making a concerted effort, in a realistic way, to keep my family and my home as toxin free as possible. Hopefully I will have a small, positive impact on the world and on the people around me in the process. I want to share my findings with you, so it’s quicker and easier for you to try and make some small, positive changes too.
Feel free to introduce yourself below. I’d love to hear from you.
P.S. I’m also an avid photographer, albeit a complete amateur. So you’ll have to forgive me for shamelessly showcasing my little muse all over this site. Sorry.
