When I first started buying organic, researching foods, and reading labels, I had a really hard time venturing from my couponing, cheapskate ways, trying to find the best deal on "food," but what I realized quickly was that what we had been buying wasn't really food at all. Sure I could find cheap junk food, cereals with food dye and dangerous additives, and get great deals on fruit straight from other countries, but when I started examing where our food came from and what was in it, I realized that sometimes paying a higher price now is [...]

I love to buy the boys news clothes, but I always have to rationalize whether or not they need it, how much it will be worn, etc, etc. I like to get the most out of my kids' clothes, who doesn't?

And besides that, they are being earth friendly and offer free return shipping PLUS a discount on future clothing. So, when your child grows out of his favorite KinderStuff shirt, just send [...]

A year ago today, I posted about the book that changed the way I thought about what we ate, the products that we used, and our environment. That book was "Little Changes," by Kristi Marsh. In the past year, we have made big and little changes around here. And by following Kristi on Facebook, I began to learn about Audra Conklin, the owner of what was previously Modern Mermaids, but is now Audra's. Audra has a license in holistic spa therapies and a big believer in anti-chemicals. She and a friend teamed [...]

Valentine's Day has always baffled me a bit. I've read the history behind the day and am still baffled how it turned in to what it is today, but hey, that's okay! I think it's sweet for kids to exchange valentines and well, it's just a special day with an excuse to eat candy, right? I would feel a lot better about the massive amounts of candy that the boys will get for V-Day if there wasn't so much junk in them, which is why I was excited to use YumEarth Organics' lollipops to use [...]

I recently purchased some coconut flour for cooking. I thought it would be a good alternative to wheat flour and then I began reading up on all of the benefits of coconut flour. First of all, it’s gluten free, so if you’re allergic to gluten, it’s good that there is yet another alternative to wheat flour. It’s also high in fiber and protein and can be used in muffins or quick breads to substitute for wheat flour OR you can substitute 10-30% of the [...]

Let’s face it, the Captain is looking forward to getting some candy in his stocking tomorrow. As much as I want to be able to give the boys a treat, I don’t like giving them candy containing food dyes and other junk. That’s why this year, they’ll be getting organic gummy bears from YumEarth Organics!
This bag of gummy bears contains 10 snack packs – perfect for portion control!

As you all know, Baby D loves to eat. He is getting to the age where he doesn’t really want to try anything new, but pouches from Ella’s Kitchen are always a sure bet. You should have seen his face light up when we received this box of goodies from Ella’s Kitchen to review:
He has eaten almost all of the pouches by now, and there wasn’t one he hasn’t liked. He didn’t really care for the apple [...]

I love using bath and beauty products that are natural and free of yucky chemicals. I have personally found that products free of chemicals are much better for my skin and my boys' skin. So, while looking for products that fit the bill, I discovered Made from Earth. This company has spent many years searching for holistic skin care products with an emphasis on organic ingredients. Made from Earth promises that their products are chemical free, and [...]
