Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

meatlessmonday Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

Well, I am all prepped & ready to go for another Clean 30!  I really need it this time.  I’ve let go of everything with Stone’s bar mitzvah & Passover.  Such a mess!  I did however keep my movement in tact.  Actually, for the last 10 days (I’ve been off work for the past week & 1/2), I’ve had well over 10,000 on my steps with my JawboneUP.  That is something that makes me happy because prior to the 10 days, I was ALL out of whack.  As much as I crave & thrive from structure, it’s so easy to deviate!  At least, that’s how it works for me!

30CleanLogowebsmall Meatless Monday & day 1 of The Clean 30 begins TODAY!

So, today is day 1 of The 30 Clean.  Are any of you joining me?  I’m psyched b/c there’s now a v-clean (vegan & vegetarian) board for the 1st time & that’s where I’ll be for the next 30 days!

Anyway, of course I do best when I prepare & plan.  So, I did just that last night!

IMG 7675 300x225 Door to Door Organics review & Giveaway!

Sometimes I feel SO darn lucky.  Well, when I was contacted by Door to Door Organics to write a review I didn’t even need to think for a moment, I immediately said, “YES”!  If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit, you know I have ordered from them before.  They are a subscription service.  You can choose all veggies, all fruit or a combination.  You then choose the size box that works best for your household. You will then choose your frequency (once a week or every other week) along with your delivery day.

Every Friday, they’ll send you an email telling you what seasonal produce will arrive in your box. You have until noon the day prior to your delivery day to make five substitutions if you choose.  I love this part b/c as much as we like to eat a variety of foods in our house, there are certainly somethings that are not our favorites.  I love this option.  Not all other produce delivery boxes give you this option!  There are also a vairety of other items you can add:  dairy, meats, fish, additional produce, pantry items and prepared meals. There also have a bounty of recipes on the Kitchen section of the website. You can shop by recipe or simply search for ways to use a specific veggie or fruit.

So, I was asked to choose a box & also some grocery items & I gladly obliged!  As you know, I celebrate Passover & my box came just before the start of the holiday, so I was thrilled to choose produce for a recipe along with a few grocery items to complete my recipe. Of course, I needed romaine lettuce for my seder.  This box was a definite time saver for me!

I decided to make a quinoa salad.  I was able to order:  scallions, fresh dill, fresh parsley, cucumbers, red onion & red pepper from my Door to Door bitty box, along with quinoa & lemon juice from “pantry shop”.

Here’s the recipe:

  • 2 red tomatoes chopped

Instructions
  1. Cover the 2 cups of quinoa with 4 cups of water in a saucepan, over high heat on the stove. Bring to a boil, then reduce the temperature and cover for 15 minutes, until the quinoa has absorbed all the water. Fluff with a fork, and allow to cool while you chop the vegetables and herbs.
  2. In the meantime, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, in a large bowl. Add the cooked quinoa, and toss in the dressing to coat well.
  3. Add in the minced scallions, red onion, chopped dill and parsley, chopped cucumber, chopped red pepper, and olives, tomatoes, and toss well to combine. Allow the mixture to marinate at least an hour before serving.

Update & Link Laces Giveaway Winners

I’ve been missing for so long, it’s hard for me to know where to begin today.

Well, there has been SO much going on with me & something had to give….  In February, my nephew got married.  Two weeks later, Stone had his appendix out & then 3 weeks later, he had his bar mitzvah!  He was amazing, did great & it was such an amazing expereience.  It was our 1st family bar mitzvah.  The weekend was filled with pride, emotion, entertaining & exhaustion!

Benji turned 50, 3 days prior to Stone’s bar mitzvah, so we had a party for him as well.  It’s not everyday that my husband turns 50!

Last week, we thought Nemo (our 6 yr old goldendoodle)  had cancer & was put through a battery of tests which showed she has osteoarthritis.  Such a relief!  We were told that she probably had bone cancer & I can’t even share what stress we had gone through for about a week with that terrible news.  Well, it was such a relief when we found out it was not cancer & is something that can be treated!

IMG 8082 225x300  Update & Link Laces Giveaway Winners

Well, with all of that happening, I had to take a blogging break.  I also took a break from lots of things.  My routine that I treasure went to hell.  My great eating habits went to hell & my exercise routine was out of whack.  When I have structure, I do best.  I know that about myself & I crave structure to function at my best.

The month of March was insanely busy.  There was a LOT of great things, but really, too much at 1 time for this family who likes structure, routine & a regular schedule.  Did I just say the same thing in 3 different ways?

So, I’m instituting my structure back into my life again.  I need it & so does my family!

(Can’t wait for my next Door to Door Organics box to be delivered)

The 30 Clean begins next Monday, April 13 & I can hardly wait.  I don’t even know how many 30 Cleans I’ve participated in, but I love them.  Each time I participate I learn a little more & am always SO grateful I’m clean.

This week is Passover.  Our fridge is on the fritz & a part has been ordered, but we have a few days until it comes in.  So, my typically stocked with vegies fridge is not stocked with vegies this week.  It’s a little bit whacky, but doable for a few days.

I have started running outside, which I adore!  I’m running slowly, but I’m outside.  It’s always difficult to transition from the treadmill to the pavement for me.  It takes my tender feet a while to make the transition, so I’m doing it slowly so that my feet have time to build up to the new feel.

Well, there’s my update & why I have been gone for a bit.  Looking forward to getting back on track & I’ll keep you posted of my progress along the way.

In the meantime, I chose 5 winners for link laces giveaway.  If your name is listed below, please send me your mailing information so you get your laces in time for the outdoor running season!

Young Living Essential Oils

For many years now, I’ve been ordering oils from a couple of different places, or I simply pick them up from Whole Foods or other boutique’s & use them as “cologne”.  I’ve been using oils because they are inexpensive & smell fresh.  I like a fresh/clean smell rather than a strong colonge scent.  I know there are so many benefits of essential oils, but I simply prefer them as “good smells”.  Several weeks ago, Lisa contacted me about her therauputic grade essential oils.  I thought why not try a different brand that I’ve never heard of before because I love discovering new products.  I was shocked when they arrived & I started using them how powerful they could be.  They have many more properties than simply smelling good.  Ha, I’m now a believer.  Let me tell you a little….

IMG 7938 225x300 Young Living Essential OilsIMG 7994 300x300 Young Living Essential Oils

If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you’ve noticed over the past several months, I’ve been slowing down with my posts.  I haven’t posted daily, as I used to for quite some time because my life has gotten extremely busy.  I’ll spare you the details, but have been swamped with “life” which has inhibited my ability to blog regularly.  So, of course, the first oil I wanted to try from the Young Living Essential Oils kit that was sent to me was the peace & calming sample

.3398 Young Living Essential Oils

 

 

The explaination of this oil that came in  my booklet said:  “Combining essential oils that are simultaneously soothing and uplifting, Peace & Calming is formulated to help release tension.  Massage onto the soles of your children’s feet before bedtime to encourage a restful night’s sleep.”  Well, I wanted to try it first before I used it on my children.  I did (during the day) put it on the bottom of my feet & on my wrists as well b/c that’s where I usually put my oils.  I must tell you that the scent is very strong.  Much stronger than I’m used to from the other oils I’ve purchased.  So, definitely what I read about the Young Living Essential Oils being pure & powerful holds true there.  Throughout the day, I found myself quiet relaxed & at ease, even with everything going on that day.  I admit to not loving this scent, but do believe that the oils kept me in a nice relaxed place throughout the day.

I then tried the Citrus Fresh & put it on a cotton ball in a few rooms in my house. Stone LOVED the smell & thanked him for putting it in his room.  Our house smelled fresh & clean & it I loved smelling this scent throughout the next couple days.  I did refresh the cotton balls.

This is what is said about Citrus Fresh:  Citrus Fresh™ is a relaxing, calming blend loved by children and adults alike. Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports the immune system and overall health* while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. It also works as an air purifier.

One of my favorite scents of all time is lavendar, so of course, I had to try the lavendar.  I don’t honestly know if it’s true for me that lavendar relaxes or if I simply love the scent of lavendar.  Again, I rubbed it on my wrists & rubbed it on my pillow & Truman’s pillow before bed.  Both of us are good sleepers, so that’s not a good test to see if it really helped us sleep better, but it was quite refreshing to smell before I fell asleep & when I woke in the a.m.

I will tell you that the scent is much stronger than the oils I typically purchase.  They also last longer.  It’s certain possible that the benefits are substantial b/c I’ve been surrounding myself with the “relaxing” oils & I’ve felt much more at ease since using them.

Here’s some information about Young Living Essential Oils…
True Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils
Therapeutic grade essential oils are extremely concentrated particularly when they have been derived through distillation, which is the most effective method of extraction. Because essential oils are so highly concentrated, most of them are at least 50 times more therapeutically potent than the herbs or plants they came from. When herbs are cut & dehydrated for therapeutic use, they can lose as much as 90% of the healthy nutrients as well as the vast majority of the vital oxygen molecules. Not so with essential oils, which are many times more potent than dried herbs.

Most of the essential oils you find in health food stores are so low in quality and full of adulterations, you would be shocked. Even essential oils labeled as “PURE” are not what they seem.

There is a very big difference between the low quality essential oils and true therapeutic grade essential oils.

Young Living Essential Oils set the standard for purity and quality in the U.S. Every batch of oils is rigorously tested by independent laboratories before being sold to customers. You are protected by Young Living’s unconditional guarantee of purity and quality.

I would definitely recommend these oils & am excited that I was given the opportunity to give them a try.

Have you used therapeutic grade essential oils before?  What benefits have you experienced?

Lisa, I’m so grateful for this experience.  Thank you for the opportunity!

For this review, I put them on Truman’s shoes.  He’s 10, hates to tie his shoes, and has difficulty making his laces tight enough not to come undone.  So, a couple of weeks ago, I thread them through Truman’s shoes  & presto…..  Even for this little guy who is hard on “everything”, they worked!  His shoes stayed on, his laces remained tight & they caused a lot less stress in our house b/c he used to walk around with untied laces.

Building Better Eating Habits

Periodically I’m asked to post something here about various topics.  I will post when I agree what is being suggested & of course decline when it’s not of interest to me thus think you also will not be interested.  In the meantime, the article below sounded so intriguing to me, I hope you also find it to be interesting!  I post it now, as I myself have been struggling with healthy eating habits.  Of course, I do realize that I am pretty healthy, but when I fall from my clean eating, I tend to slip hard & it’s hard to get back.  Well, friends, I’m back!  When I eat healthy, I feel so much better both emotionally & physically.  I am curious to hear your thoughts on Building Better Eating Habits.  Enjoy.

The UK’s FSA Uses Bingo for Building Better Habits

PROD05 food Building Better Eating Habits

We don’t always want to admit it, but we’ve all had bad eating habits. Whether it’s the willful enjoyment of “just another cupcake” or guzzling down a sugary soda at every meal, these small habits can be pretty hard to break. After all, even if you wanted  to actually start eating healthy, there’s a big chance that the thought of giving up your favorite desserts and heavy meals could be enough to turn you off of the idea of correcting your eating habits altogether. It’s not always easy to get people to start eating better, and it’s especially difficult when it comes to kids. The first step, of course, is proper education, and the UK’s Food Standards Agency (FSA) has been hard at work developing ways to get children and adults alike to start eating much healthier food, as well as start taking on a better understanding of food in general. The UK has already been dubbed Europe (The-second-fattest-country), and their National Health Service spends billions a year on emergency bariatric surgery for the morbidly obese. It’s an epidemic of epic proportions, and the FSA has decided to try and nip the problem in the bud by coming up with a great way to educate the public about proper eating. They’ve done this in a rather unconventional way too – with the help of one of Britain’s favorite pastimes: Bingo. Bingo isn’t a game that’s still played often around the world, but in the UK, the game is huge. The BBC reported than in 2004, there were less than 20 online bingo portals operating in the UK, but by 2013, these online bingo sites numbered over 350. Thanks to the services of companies like Virtue Fusion, whose bingo software powers the games on Betfair a slew of online bingo portals have emerged. Even the Daily Mail, a rather popular news outlet, launched a bingo site in support of breast cancer awareness. Experts estimated that the industry was worth $557 million in the UK alone, making bingo one of its most popular pastimes. Seeing this, the FSA did something rather remarkable: they created bingo games that taught proper proportions, as well as encouraged a more hygienic approach towards food in general. The FSA created two bingo games, the first of which is Eatwell Bingo.  Eatwell Bingo relies on the Eatwell Plate, the lesser-known, updated version of the Food Pyramid. It goes through the items found in the Eatwell Plate and becomes a platform for discussion amongst parents and their kids, or groups of friends who want to learn more about what they should be eating, and how much they should be eating.

eatwellplatea Building Better Eating Habits

The second bingo game is Beat the Bingo Bug, a game that was created in response to the rising number of cases of food poisoning from the food bug listeria. It covers five themes: choosing food, cooking the food, chilling the food, cleaning the food, and preventing contamination of germs. It helps teach groups of people how to properly handle their food and make sure that they’re eating clean, safe food at all time. Bingo might seem like a strange game to use, but with it being so popular in the UK, the choice seemed quite obvious. The FSA continues to develop fun educational games that make use of popular platforms in order to further disseminate information about healthy eating habits.

Foggless Shower Mirror review & Winner!

I had the opportunity to review the Foggless Shower Mirror.  I’ve had it for a few weeks now & wanted to wait a little bit before I wrote my review.  Namely because I’ve had several other shower mirrors in the past that simply didn’t stand up to their claim.  I wanted to make sure this was going to be an honest review, so I wanted to give it a while to see how it really works.  Sounds funny that I needed to give a shower mirror a little time to see how it works, doesn’t it?  Well, I’ve had several others & they either fog up or don’t stick to the shower tiles as claimed.  This one works, as it states it does!!!!  It sticks & doesn’t fog up in the shower!  That’s all that we need.  Both my husband & I both like it!  He of course likes it to see what he’s shaving.  I like it to make sure I get all the soap off my face.  It also comes with a handy razor holder that is next to the shower mirror.

Today is a special Meatless Monday!  I was asked by the  Yum Squad to participate in a special #MysteryIngredient challenge in celebration of National Peanut Month.  Well, YES, of course I wanted to participate.  I LOVE peanut butter!  The hope is to showcase the wonderful versatility of peanut butter by providing me with a mystery ingredient to be used in addition to peanut butter in a recipe.

If you read my blog, you know I use pb often to cook/bake with, so I was ready for the challenge!  However, not knowing what the mystery ingredient was going to be made me so darn curious!

To my pleasant surprise my mystery ingredient was sriracha!  I LOVE sriracha as much as I love pb.  It was a win/win for me.

The Kelapo Coconut oil giveaway is:

Kelapo Coconut Oil Giveaway!

I’ve done a review for Kelapo Coconut Oil in the past & was so thrilled when they contacted me again.  I use coconut oil for almost All of my cooking & baking.  If you haven’t yet gotten on the coconut oil bandwagon, I must tell you that it’s time!

Coconut oil has so many benefits!

Extra virgin coconut oil is comprised of medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs, that you could say are the most recognized ingredients of plant based saturated fats. The most recognizable of all the MCTs is lauric acid. Besides extra virgin coconut oil, lauric acid is found in breast milk. Rich in antioxidants, lauric acid and other MCTs, may help the body absorb important nutrients and minerals, eliminate harmful bacteria, and fight the signs of aging.

Professional athletes have long been using coconut oil as fuel to build lean muscle. Adding coconut oil to a smoothie, can increase your feeling of fullness and satiety for longer periods of time. Some people have even reported the ability to burn more energy and achieve greater workout results after the use of extra virgin coconut oil.  

Mediterranean diets receive lots of attention for the connection between health and the use of olive oil. In tropical countries where coconut oil has been consumed daily for hundreds of years, similar reports of overall health are beginning to be reported as well.

Lastly, scientific research is further looking into the connection between extra virgin coconut oil and brain function. Over time, glucose inhibitors can limit the amount of energy to the brain, causing a decrease in cognitive function. Consuming regular amounts of coconut oil however, can lead to ketone production, and the brain uses ketones as energy when glucose is not present, helping restore brain activity.  Well, I know I can use restored brain activity.  Personally, I haven’t seen this result yet, but I’m hoping…

Seriously though, I really love the benefits & taste of coconut oil.  There are several brands of coconut oil on the market, but they’re not all created equal!

Since opening for business, Kelapo has focused on providing the market’s highest quality extra virgin coconut oil. Each of our products is a direct reflection of our commitment to wholesome, sustainable living. We personally base our healthy lifestyle around organic nutrition, regular exercise, and natural remedies.

One way we do this is by incorporating coconut oils into our own everyday recipes and routines and we take great joy in making their benefits available to friends, family, and customers.

I use it for roasting my vegetables, making protein balls, baking, rub it on my hands to help the dryness, and so much more.

The kind folks at Kelapo want you to try their products as well & they’re giving away an 8-ounce jar and soy-free spray, which are always a hit with consumers!

I was so fortunate to receive a “slew” of goodies from the Premier Protein line.  I received a shakes, bars & smoothies to review.

Everyone in my house decided to help with the review.

IMG 7754 225x300 Premier Protein Review & Nut Milk & Butter Cookbook winners IMG 7753 225x300 Premier Protein Review & Nut Milk & Butter Cookbook winners

Stone first tried a vanilla shake for breakfast.  He’s a good/healthy eater, but not always a fan of protein drinks.  He gave this one a thumb’s up & has since had several along with the chocolate flavor.  He does prefer the vanilla best.

As for me, I’m a big proten bar gal.  I love to have them around for those times when I am on the run & need something tasty & healthy.  I found the pb bar to be quite tasty & relatively low in sugar & other ingredients compared to most protein bars on the market.  It hit the spot & served the purpose of putting something healthy in my belly until my next meal!

Premier Protein’s line of shakes, bars and smoothies provide delicious protein to give you the energy you need every day and are packed with protein, not sugar or calories.

 

On the Premier Protein website, you can compare foods to see how they stack up against each other.  I paired up a protein shake with a bagel & cream cheese, which Stone eats sometimes.
