Organic Granola Bar Recipe

One day, a couple of years ago, I was browsing around a store and came across a cookbook for kids.  Since my daughter isn’t a fan of cooking, and I am, I was hoping the book would be a great way to get her interested in cooking.  When we got home, we looked through the […]

Be an ingredient detective

The headline reads: “Ben & Jerry’s to drop ‘All Natural’ from labels”.  The “All Natural” label is being removed because there are ingredients in the ice cream that are not actually natural.  For some, this may have been a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t.  Greenwashing is what corporations do when they try to make […]

My first event table!

I just had my first event table today at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Pasta and Relax event that my church held at Gilda’s Club.  What a great time!  I was so excited to speak to so many women who know and understand how potentially harmful some of the products we use […]

Organic Water – Bride Revisited

So, that pesky issue of ‘organic water’ has arisen again.  Yesterday, I was asked my thoughts about whether or not I think Fiji water is the closest thing to ‘organic water’.  My initial response was that basically anytime you put water in a plastic bottle and ship it across the country, you’ve pretty much lost […]

Menu for the day Sunday, August 29, 2010

As I progress through my journey, there are two areas that are noticeable to others.  One is my hair – I now follow a ‘natural haircare routine’ that I will discuss later, and the other is my weight loss.  So, naturally, the two questions I’m asked the most are about my hair routine and about […]

Pure Organic Raw Fruit & Nut Bar Review

While I was at my local grocery store, headed to the check-out, these “Pure Organic” bars caught my eye. Really, any time I see the organic product in the grocery store I get excited, but I do know enough about organic products to know that everything marked organic isn’t necessarily truly organic or healthy.

The one question I get asked the most by people who are not already tuned into the whole organic ‘thing’, is “What does organic mean anyhow???” I can also assure you that a lot of times a “something smells bad” lip curl comes packaged with that question. In a nutshell (taken from my other website): […]
