I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend.  I love Mother’s Day weekend.  Usually, my kids engage in their normal bickering, I do my usual motherly duties of cooking, cleaning, and correcting… If I am lucky I get a sweet card or an extra hug and kiss.  There is no greater role that I …
It’s time for bringing out those garden gloves and shovels and get planting those pretty flowers!  I have a developed a fondness for bees ever since realizing they are a tad bit (actually A LOT) important.  Since we aren’t becoming beekeepers anytime soon, thought we could still help the bees by planting flowers that they …
Do your kids drink sports drinks?  We try to avoid them and just drink water or coconut water, instead.  According to Dr. William Sears, you can make your own sports drink for your child to have during strenuous exercise. Here is the recipe! 1 quart of 100 percent, noncarbonated juice 1 teaspoon of salt 1 pinch of …

I heard the other day that the air quality indoors can actually be worse then that outdoors.  It makes since with all the chemical releasing furniture, flooring, air fresheners, paint, cleaning products that we use that contribute to the pollution.  That is in addition to having poor ventilation, dirty filters, pets…  Any chance I get, …
I recently had the great opportunity to tour Husk Foods! Husk’s mission is to have farmers in Indiana feed their local community, the way it used to be done.   Instead of shipping out the food that Indiana farmers produce, Husk freezes and preserves that food so that Indiana residents can enjoy it year round.

I’ve been working hard towards healing the inflammation in my gut w/ the hope that it will put my Grave’s disease in remission!  If not that, at least reduce some of my symptoms.  I’ve been following the AIP diet which is a more restrictive form of Paleo. So many easy choices for my meals are …
