* B the Vitamin *

….It’s yellow…it makes you pee yellow….B the Vitamin Complex =}

I think of it as the energy complex…of course…each needed in it’s own special way.

..it’s often a simple remedy and often overlooked deficiency.

..supplementing can grant great benefits to a tired depleted system…breathing new life into cells…infusing the body with concentrated satisfaction that results in the ever illusive elixir of life…………energy.

…there are many things we encounter during the day that are known to deplete the B’s.

…but, in my humble opinion,  stress is the #1 reason for B’s to be rapidly consumed by the body.

…so give it more…they have a remarkable effect if taken daily and consistently…try it…you’ll see.

…on another note…many skin ailments can be cleared up with a good dose of the B’s.

….acne, cracks, rashes…all respond well to a good consistent regimen.

..deficiency takes a long time to show up…be patient.

…it may take a while to build your stores back up.

…I Promise, it’s worth the wait =}

…buy online…comes right to your door…easy and cost effective

* The R E A L Salt *

…..it’s true…..your body needs salt! BUT…..it needs a REAL salt, not some stripped down impersonator with a MAJOR imbalance.

Iodized salt is Sodium Chloride….2 elements…also added to prevent certain birth defects, Iodine.

….real salt is full of complexity even though it is 95% Sodium Chloride….by real salt…I mean Himalayan Salt…or Pink Salt

the most important trace minerals and elements that make salt an essential nutrient have been left intact….including iodine =)

…there….now make the change and feel the difference….on your tongue first…the taste is so perfect!

It’s balanced…bright and full of flavor….adding it to your favorite foods will prove it’s staying power in your kitchen….it’s the little things….like the right salt….perfectly seasoning your life =}

******Until we meet again******

* Salad f o r Breakfast *

The humble salad, in most peoples minds, belongs in a little side bowl with a dollop of tasty dressing and contains no more than 4 veggies.

  Then there’s people like me,

 ((:not sure how many that would be:))

who eat salad like it’s their J O B….

On average, I buy 3 greens a week….usually 2 lettuces ((romaine, red, green…etc.))

                                                              ….and a non-lettuce((kale, spinach, arugula…etc.))

                                                            I pile on the colors….((red, green, yellow peppers,  shaved carrot, cukes, red cabbage, green onions, and  tomatoes))

  My salads are always topped with nuts ((walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflowers…etc.))

                                                      sprinkles((dulse, chia, sesame seeds, nutritional yeast))

                              sometimes I add cheese((feta or cheddar))

                             and if you aren’t a veggie((Chopped egg, Turkey chunks or tuna))

I almost always make my own dressing as a simple mix of oils, ACV and garlic powder with a

S Q U E E Z E  of L E M O N

It’s pretty….a work of art….I am a salad artist =)

 I don’t have to tell you how good veggies in layered form are for your health.

How about starting your day with a crisp green pile of veggie goodness!

 I do it all the time!

It’s by far my favorite meal to start the day…..

* The Cleaner Way to Clean *

Our home is cleaned with the simplest ingredients…

Castile soap

White Vinegar

Baking Soda

Hydrogen Peroxide

and scented with natural oils.

With these 4 ingredients, our home stays fresh as well as chemical free for way less. Way less!!

 

I haven’t bought a commercial cleaner in years….don’t even miss them!

Using just a regular old spay bottle…mix together a squirt of

Castile Soap

water

vinegar…

 

You can adjust the strengths to suit your cleaning needs…

I typically use a ratio of 1:4 vinegar/water

add 10 or so drops of oil…depending on the scents of course.

I have a combo I really like that includes

grapefruit

lemon

 rosemary

 bergamot

orange….

but I’ve also experimented with

 

basil

lavender

peppermint

tea tree

eucalyptus

I order mine on Vitacost…usually the NOW brand or Aura Cacia

Each has their own benefits in keeping your home germ free and healthy.

((((Vitacost))))

 

Microfiber cloths are by far my favorite way to clean and believe me, I’ve tried them all!

E-cloths…Norwex…no name brands….I have a drawer full of them!

Make the switch…..and you’ll never go back to regular old cleaning again…

Safe, natural, easy and they clean beautifully with only water!!

Pay close attention to the washing instructions though…they aren’t towels =)

Simple. Sparkling. Clean

* Homemade Home *

I’m a sucker for anything handmade…especially food!

You can taste the love…it’s the best.

The meals served in our home are always made by our hands.

No boxes, no mixes, and usually no recipes!

Throwing ingredients together and slinging spices is a form of therapy not found in any other activity and we really never make the exact same things twice.

Our favorite standby’s are things like

Tacos

Shrimp Scampi

Lasagna

Grilled Cheese and Soup

Quesadillas

Pasta Salads

Roasted Veggies

Meatloaf and  Mashed

Burgers and Fries

Mustard Chicken

Stir Fry and Rice

Wantons or Eggrolls

the list continues to grow as we try new things….

We love to experiment in the kitchen and on the grill….

Pinterest is a great place for inspiration….

Make sure your pantry is stocked with simple basics so you’re always

 ready to create a meal.

Buy healthy food….Eat healthy food.

Utilize your freezer.

Having a meal plan helps.

Keep a running grocery list.

Don’t be afraid to try something out of your ordinary.

Add flavor by adding herbs.

Make coconut oil your favorite oil.

Now….go cook something yummy =}
