Why Organic Milk Costs More than Conventional – and Why it’s Absolutely Worth It

Organic Milk

This is my second post about the Stonyfield Farm Tour I recently had the honor of attending. You can read Part One of My Stonyfield Trip post here. When I tell people that I write a blog focused on how to have a healthy lifestyle AND save money doing it, the question that I am most frequently asked is: Why is organic milk SO expensive? Do you really buy all organic food? The answer to the second question is easier than the first. No, I do … [Read more...]

Using Sweet Almond Oil to Enhance Your Natural Beauty Routine | #NowWellness

Almond Oil Uses

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Now Foods and Mamavation. All opinions are my own. So, we all know how easy it is to make DIY household cleaners.

How to Choose the Best Greek Yogurt

The Best Greek Yogurt

10 years ago no one had even heard of Greek yogurt, but in 2015 it's as ubiquitous and trendy as kale and chia seeds. While Greek yogurt is touted as a protein-rich and lower-fat alternative to traditional yogurt, not all Greek yogurt is created equal in terms of nutrition. Different brands, and even different varieties within a brand, vary widely in terms of sugar content, artificial ingredients, and production processes. First of all, until … [Read more...]

How to Choose a Safe Sunscreen + Goddess Garden Organics Review & Giveaway

Safe Sunscreen

This post is sponsored by Green Sisterhood but the opinions are my own.  What is in your sunscreen? Do you know? Until I had kids, I didn't think about it too much. But when I realized I was using a product that could be absorbed into my small children's systems, I became concerned.  When my son was born 7 years ago, I made the switch to organic or "natural" sunscreens, but still didn't look into it much further. I've now learned that ANY … [Read more...]

Why PB&J Chia Seed Pudding will Change Your Life | Chia Seed Recipes

Chia Seed recipes

I've been reading about how FABULOUS Chia Seed Pudding is for months now, but, to be honest, I've been extremely suspect.  I felt like Chia pudding was one of those things healthy bloggers said was delicious, but really tasted like sludge. I'm looking at you, Wheatgrass. So I've been really reluctant to waste perfectly good Chia seeds (they ain't cheap!) and almond milk on this experiment. Finally, after eating one too many bags (yes, I … [Read more...]

Homemade Face Moisturizer – Only 3 Ingredients!

Face Moisturizer No Text

You're probably sick by now of me going on and on and on about how much I LURVE using the Oil Cleansing Method to wash my face. In a nutshell, it's easy to make, it's super cheap (about $15 per YEAR), and I have gotten tons of compliments on my clear skin since I started using it. The truth is, because the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) is SO effective, I rarely need to use moisturizer. However, in the cold winter months when my skin tends to get … [Read more...]

4 Things That Won’t Happen at ShiftCon Social Media Conference |#shiftcon
