Now that I have that out of the way – today’s topic is something that I never expected to be so near and dear [...]
I really did have some posts planned (and even partially written) for this week, but this silly little virus called influenza decided to invade our home over the weekend.
My couch buddy!
We’ve never dealt with the flu before and I have to say, it hasn’t been nearly as bad as I ever anticipated. I am [...]
We began cleaning up our lifestyle a few years ago. We felt that we could be better stewards of the environment, bodies and resources God has given us. We’ve made quite a few changes over the last couple of years (including switching to cloth diapers, I’ve given up shampoo, we’ve been planting a garden and [...]
Wow! It’s hard to believe I’ve been shampoo free for a year (14 months, actually)!
What started out as a frustrating endeavor has ended up working really well for me.
My basic routine has changed a little over the year, but I’ve been using my current routine for several months now and have wonderful results.
Every other day:
Yum! This is my new favorite winter soup! It’s easy and so yummy!
What you need:~ 1 small yellow onion, diced ~ 1 T. coconut oil~ 4 cups chicken stock (I use homemade)~ 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken (or more if you like it extra chicken-y!)~ ½ bag frozen sweet corn~ 2-3 cans Rotel (original)~ [...]

I had lots of problems figuring out what mixture worked for me and the time it was taking to get it applied to my scalp/hair, so I gave up. Then, a few weeks later [...]
I thought it was time I give you all an update on my garden. The following photos were taken about a week ago and everything is a bit bigger now.
* In the back, on the far left and just left of center (the tallest plants) are all tomatoes. This year I started them [...]
I realized that I never gave you the gist of what my hair type is. My hair is moderately thick, medium brown (all natural), approximately 6 inches below my shoulders, semi-curly, but also easily straightened, and in DIRE need of a trim. Even before I stopped using shampoo, I was having to flat iron it [...]
Last week I gave you a general run down on how to make your own baby food and I’m wrapping up the subject this week with a cost comparison on conventional baby food vs. homemade.
Keep in mind, these are prices in Colorado for mostly in-season produce (typically in-season produce is less expensive, and locally grown [...]
