That One Time We Were In a Coffee Commercial

Some people get 15 minutes of fame; I got 15 seconds. Next time Youtube or Facebook stops you with a catchy little ad for Vitacup coffee, you might see me and my family. Earlier this month, through a series of fortunate events, my family was asked to be in a commercial. The basic information given …

Make-it Monday: All Purpose Surface Cleaner

Ingredients for natural all purpose surface cleaner

I love this cleaner for my counters, stove top, kitchen table, etc. Easy peasy ingredients. No chemicals = the kids can do the cleaning! No more ruining nice towels with bleach stains! Through my green-cleaning experiments I’ve lost a few bottles to weird ingredient combos that didn’t sit well with each other. This is my “ah ha” recipe that …

Natural Cleaning: Why and what you need to get started

natural cleaning: Why and what you need to get started

I started making my own cleaning supplies almost a year ago. I wanted a safer product- one that wasn’t messing with my internal organs when I breathed them. A product that I could hand my kids to help me clean and not worry about the repercussions of them ingesting it, inhaling it, or making a …

Stupid Pink Ribbons

Pink ribbons are everywhere! Grocery products donating proceeds to breast cancer research, pink ribbon socks, tees, earrings, etc., sports teams wearing pink ribbon patches; it’s clear that our society wants to save the boobies! But did you know that most other types of cancer have a color to represent support for it too? When was the last …

Cold Remedies- My Aresenal to Fight the Common Cold

My Aresenal to Fight the Common Cold

Summer colds are the worst. Who wants to be sniffling and coughing when they should be swimming and sunning? It’s not exactly comfortable to drink hot tea in triple-digit weather either. I think I may have mentioned last week that my husband had a cold. Unfortunately he won’t take my advice on how to cure …

Get a Stuck Ring Off of Your Finger

Get a stuck ring off of your finger

So last night I sat down to write my masterpiece but I was incredibly distracted by a ring that I couldn’t get off my finger. I had forced it on to begin with and after a few hours in the summer heat, I was too swollen for it to budge. I tried some oil which …

2014 Dirty Dozen List

dirty dozen produce list

Fruits and vegetables are amazing powerhouses of nutrients for our body but when we try to do right by ourselves and buy organic, our hearts stop at the sight of their price tags. Organic produce can be more expensive, so if you are concerned with pesticide residue (and not ingesting it) this list will help …

Getting Back on Track: Dumping the junk to make room for healthy eats

I have slacked on my healthy eating habits and I am paying for it. My belly feels like jelly, I have no energy, and my pipes aren’t, um, flowing as regularly as they used to. When I get busy, something usually gives. A week-long camping trip, a vacation to Vegas, and a pity party about …

Be Your Own Advocate

Stand up for yourself. You're worth it

It was a sad day when I realized that doctors are not miracle healers, but just regular guys and gals who have a knack for science. They don’t know it all, can’t fix it all, and certainly have bad days like the rest of us. So when it comes to your health, you need to …
