Proactive ways to Stay Healthy during Cold/Flu Season!

I’ll be blunt! I am sick of hearing about flu shots and H1N1 shots and that to stay healthy we SHOULD have one or both of these shots. Although it may seem preventative to some, I think it is an easy way out! Now, before you all get your panties in a bunch, I will […]

Green Kitchen Tools Review

One of the places that I dream and need to “green” the most in my home is the kitchen. I have lots of plastic containers(gasp) and old pots and pans with unhealthy surfaces and mismatched kitchen “tools” that are not in great condition or are, again, plastic! So, when I got the box of goodies […]

Zkano Organic Cotton Socks Review and Giveaway!

If there is one thing I love, it is a great pair of comfy socks! When I am at home, I always have on a pair of socks, I prefer to wear socks to bed and especially prefer that my socks be soft and comfortable, but also snug(at least sometimes). I put a lot of […]

Baked Pasta with Roasted Veggies-It’s Meatless Monday!

One of my favorite things to do is take a recipe that includes meat or isn’t necessarily healthy and make it my own vegetarian version with seasonal vegetables and healthy alternatives to some of the listed ingredients. How is that “green” you ask? Well, first of all, the impact on the environment from farmed animals […]

Why it is Green to Be Vegetarian!

One of the many ways I think we can all be green is to eat less meat, or become vegetarian(and if you are really ambitious, vegan). In our house, we are vegetarian(except when out of the house when my husband goes carnivore crazy)! Not only is eating no meat or less meat green, but it […]

Kids Konserve Review and Discount Code!

Providing my kids with a waste-free lunchbox has been a gradual transition that I am pleased to say is basically complete! From reusable containers to the cloth napkin, my kids don’t throw anything from their lunchboxes away! Good feeling, great feeling! Consider these facts from the Kids Konserve website: Children’s lunches create 3.5 billion pounds […]

Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway!

I have to tell you that coconut oil has become an absolute staple in my home. From baking and frying with it in the kitchen( I even used it once or twice to make popcorn) to all over skincare in the bathroom, it is so wonderful for your skin and can be substituted for traditional […]

If you have wine you can get through just about anything!

It’s going to be a great weekend! At least for my husband’s family. His brother’s family will drive the five hour road trip to come for a visit to my mother and father-in-law’s house. Pull out the red carpet, they don’t come to town often! So, this means we will make the one hour drive […]

Attacks on Bloggers Disgust Me

Okay, so I have always told my younger son to be kind to others and to never pick on anyone and if he witnesses someone being picked on, he should defend that person or get a grown-up. See, he has an older brother with autism and he knows what it is like to live in […]

My kids don’t drink soda…..and other reasons I am a horrible Mom!

Like most Moms, my priority is the health and well-being of my children. I protect them as best I can from harm, feed them a mostly organic diet, expose them to no harsh chemicals in our home and teach them smart choices for when they aren’t actually with me to make the choice for them. […]
