Most of us know the chemical BPA has been removed from things like water bottles and baby formula packaging. But did you know it's also in that can of green beans in your pantry and on your grocery store receipts? Check out today's post to find out how to safeguard yourself and your family.

#healthyliving   #BPA  
The widespread use of bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic goods was big news a few years ago. Some research has shown it mimics the hormone estrogen and has been linked to a long list of health problems. In 2012 the FDA banned it in baby products and several manufacturers have removed BPA (added to plastics as ...

Turn up the nutrition on traditional breakfast hash by substituting regular potatoes with the "sweet" variety! Great for breakfast, lunch, OR dinner!

#breakfastrecipe   #paleorecipes   #sweetpotatohash  
We are big fans of delicious breakfast dishes around here and yet, ironically, we hardy ever have them! Weekday mornings are usually yogurt, toast, or cereal and weekends aren’t much different unless we decide to treat ourselves by going out to breakfast. In those instances it’s usually french toast or pancakes. Oh how I long ...

Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks in the whole wide world! While movie theaters have given popcorn a bad rap recently....if you make it yourself the old fashioned way (on the stovetop or with a popcorn maker) popcorn is one of the healthiest snacks around! Check out why!

From beauty treatments to battling garden pests, plain old sugar can do a whole lot more than just sweeten your coffee or tea! 
Check out these "sweet" uses that have nothing to do with food.
Sugar is one of those kitchen staples we always have on hand (you never know when you might need to make an emergency batch of cookie dough!) But sugar can actually do a lot more than just satisfy your sweet tooth. From beauty treatments to fighting grass stains, regular table sugar can pinch-hit for a number of other concoctions, often times ...

The bathroom sink is one of the germiest places in our home and really should be disinfected at least once a day! Check out today's post for an easy way to keep the germs at bay!

#bathroomideas   #naturalcleaning  
Did you know that your bathroom sink is one of the most germ-ridden locations in your home? That’s because after the sink is used for things like washing hands and brushing teeth, which remove bacteria from the body, pathogens often stay put rather than rinsing down the drain. Plus the wet environment promotes germ growth. So ...

Reusable is awesome :) old towels tee shirts just be sure they don't fray in washing machine especially front loaders can clog the filters quickly . Not sure where saw how to make reusable paper towels on a roll they used metal snaps to hold towels on a "roll"/which would think would scratch some counters and such. Requires sewing by machine .
thinking washcloths that are inexpensive kind.
Thought of mix matched socks ( ones that go to that mysterious place and miss their mates?) Eww !! Wash first !! Plus are socks which are typically polyester and cotton blend absorbent ? I'm thinking of gym type socks. Have a pile of them. Most likely will go with washcloths . Decided .
Thanks great idea !

Deciphering food labels can be tricky, but when you know your way around one it can be the key to making smart nutrition choices. Today we're decoding common label terms to help you shop healthier with less hassle.

#nutritiontips   #smartshopping   #healthyeating  
When I am grocery shopping and considering buying something for the first time all I want to know is what’s in it! But after reading the label, I actually find it harder, rather than easier, to make up my mind! Food labels can be downright confusing (even misleading!) so to help us all better understand what’s in our food AND spend our grocery ...
