Last Night I Drank Veggie Tea

I steamed broccoli. I usually water the plants with the water. Instead I added tea and drank it myself. More broccoli and liquid for me. It really didn't taste too bad with tea added!

Jason - Every Natural Care

I have to say that my New Years Resolution is to read labels on bath products more! That is one are I've been horrible with! They have less FDA regulations then food. We put on all kinds of chemicals on our skin! I had a big wake up call when I had an allergic reaction to Methosulphate, which was in one of our lotions. Hives covered my already damaged leg. I also have a big old bruise.

I read online that some people that are allergic to Sulpha are allergic to Methosulphate. Then other places I found no relation at all. Who knows, but I don't want to be putting that crap on my skin anymore! My kids could be sensitive towards it to. I'm trying to be careful.

I've been using Tropical Traditions Lotions and Jason's products.

New Age Mama is giving away a holiday pack of Jason's on their site! 

Wholesome Snacks

My sons most certainly have a sweet tooth. I try and make them thing with coconut oil and whole wheat flour. Sometime I just have to tell them, "Nope you can't have a sweet treat, pick something out of the veggie drawer in the fridge."

One store that makes semi-healthy snacks is Laura's Wholesome Junk Food. I have to say that I'd love to try these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bite-lettes:

New Age Mama is giving away: two 7oz tubs of Cranberry Breakfast Bite-lettes™, their newest flavor, Retail Value $12.

Land O' Lakes

I love Land O' Lakes! They have good eggs that are all-natural. It's super important to me what type of eggs I buy. I never really knew the difference, but the all-natural, brown eggs are not as high in cholesterol.

Mom Spotted is giving away a coupon for Land O' Lakes and a $50 Visa Gift Card! WOO HOO!

A Lotion I Can Trust

Since I had my allergic reaction (with hives covering my legs) last week. I've been on the lookout for all natural lotion. Methosulphate is a bad ingredient! I saw online that many people who are allergic to Sulfa are allergic to this ingredient as well.

I'm in luck! Life in the Lost World is giving away this all natural moisturizer by Made From Earth.

Boogie Board

Do you ever go to the store and forget to get something? I sometimes feel like I should have an ongoing list! Something to jot down notes at all times. I'm an artist, so my notes have doodles on them. New Age Mama is giving away this modern day note pad called, " Boogie Board."
