I’ve had this topic on my ‘to blog about’ list for a long time. I just keep putting it off because there is so much to say that I have no idea where to start! I think a lot of my followers and readers already know a lot about this subject, but it is definitely(…)
Health and Wellness
One of the super mommies in my Holistic Mom’s Group sent out an email a few days ago about needing “mommy time” or “me time”. She asked the group what that looked like for each of us and how we made it happen. She also brought up finances and affording that time and how to(…)
I was just alerted by a dear friend that there is a new petition that has been submitted to the FDA to have the identity of milk changed so that it would include 17 additives including aspartame. If this was to pass, then these additives can be added to milk and the consumer would never(…)
So what prompted this post? Well… just before Christmas, dear hubby tree climber chipped a tooth (not doing tree work… but eating a quesadilla!). Both of us have a few fillings, but neither one of us have had many extensive problems with our teeth, praise God. So we really had no idea what a chipped(…)
I’m sure (99.9% sure) this won’t be the only post on homeschooling. We have entered into this venture at the start of the school year with Tonchi and I’m thinking it’s about to become my life for the next 15+ years… if we go this route with all the kids. WOW! Really… 15+ years? I(…)
Tonics. I’ve never been one to have faith in them or even really know or understand their use or purpose. The first recipe caught my attention first off. It is a tonic called Potassium Broth. It is recommended to be used as pick-me-up and drunk like a warm tea. It’s also said to be a great rejuvenator for(…)
Prior to reading this chapter I didn’t think it was going to apply to me… too much… However, there was a lot more information than I expected, and it wasn’t all about breastfeeding or formula feeding!
A dear friend of mine recently emailed me stating she was looking into cooking oils, what options there are and what would be best for different purposes. I emailed her a quick reply with what we use, but I thought maybe there are others out there who have the same questions….
Ok, so I wasn’t so excited about what the dessert chapter had to offer… but let me tell you this chapter more than makes up for it! There are some awesome ideas and recipes for drinks that would be such treats!
Last week while I was at work I was talking to a co-worker about our family’s diet changes. She had complained that she had been trying so hard to lose weight, but it just wasn’t happening. I was describing the changes we had made over the last year and mentioned that my post baby(…)
This documentary, Genetic Roulette, I just finished watching today and it was excellent. Yes, it is just another documentary on GMOs, but it is very good, interesting and a great reminder to be more vigilant in avoiding them. I also felt it was more encouraging that there is hope that we can change things for ourselves(…)
We have finally come to the chapter I’ve been anticipating most! Who doesn’t love sweets? We don’t eat many around here, but that is mostly because I don’t want to cook or bake with sugar and we don’t eat grains, so it greatly limits the options.
This series has been prolonged and I got off topic and side tracked many times! However, I think this is the last kids and health topic that I definitely wanted to cover. However, if there is a topic that you are interested in or would like information on, please let me know and I’ll write(…)
I’ve been on a bit of a kick lately wanting to start working through watching the rest of my list of free documentaries. A while back I made a list from Hulu and Snagfilms that caught my attention. I haven’t watched any of them recently, but I’ve been wanting to work on it! One night(…)
