We rarely eat noodles but every now and again it is nice to have. We probably haven’t had any noodles in the last year. I had heard of the or , but didn’t really research it too much since they were made of potato starch. I did look for them once or twice at our local(…)
This post is inspired by a friend of mine who now lives in Pennsylvania. She has recently started a website that is called Green Living Co-op of Indiana, PA. She is compiling information for healthy and local living. The site is new, but GREAT so far! I love the information she already has posted! I(…)
Mini-Skirts Mothers & Muslims by Christine Mallouhi This book was lent to me by an American friend who is living in an Arab nation. She read this before moving and said that it would be beneficial for me to read it as well. Now that I’ve finished it I heartily agree! Not only is it(…)
We were having a craving for enchiladas which is one of Brian’s favorite meals. I don’t make them very often and the last time I did I made grain free tortillas. I didn’t have the time to do that today and decided to just use the store bought flour tortillas and totally go off the diet!I probably(…)
Removing commercial salad dressings from our diet is a great way to get rid of a lot of empty, negative calories, preservatives, stabilizers, artificial flavorings, artificial colors, sweeteners and MSG. They are so simple and easy to make and taste amazing!
Life Sentences by Laura Lippman This was a quick and easy read, but don’t really recommend it. I did find it interesting and it wasn’t so bad that I put it down and didn’t finish it. Of course I wanted to know how the book ended. There are so many other books out there waiting(…)
I had anxiously awaited that day for months! I couldn’t wait until we finished the Costco sized bottle of ketchup. I know I could have thrown it out, but I just couldn’t do it. I could almost cry anytime I have to throw out food, especially when it’s really good whole foods! That is certainly(…)
This post is a little different than usual, but it is something we have been working on with our kids and have seen great results. I’d like to share so that maybe it will serve you as well.
By Neil Z. Meiller I did an extensive review of the 1997 edition of this book and I really liked it then, but I’ve since read the 2002 version and like it much better. I did finish it last year (2011) but am just getting around to writing the review! This edition addresses additional vaccines(…)
This stew was amazing! As we sat down to dinner the first thing Tree Climber (hubby) asked was, “Does this have meat in it?” Since he work hard all day cutting trees, climbing trees, carrying trees, stacking trees, etc… he has the appitite of a lumbar jack. When I answered “No”, his response was, “Well,(…)
This is a great chapter! Like I’ve found any that aren’t! I guess I probably like this one because I already make my own stocks and who doesn’t like a pat on the back every now and then! I haven’t make fish stock, though, so that is going to be added to the to do(…)
It’s time for a new book list for a new year! Here are my picks for the year! Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you thought about it! I’m super flexible and if I come across something that appears more interesting then I may swap it out!
This has been a huge subject of conversation and research in our house recently. Commercial toothpastes have so many chemicals, additives, sweeteners, artificial colorings and a whole host of other stuff not to mention fluoride! I’ve been on the hunt to find something all natural that works and doesn’t cost too much. We’ve tried a(…)
