I’ve always given my fruit and veggies a quick wash. Never have I seen results like this in the sink after.
I never bought into the idea that you should use soap or chemicals to wash your veggies but I didn’t feel like they were adequately getting clean.
Vinegar was really the only natural option. I hated the smell and sometimes I could taste it on the veggies I washed. Now I have Basic H!!! Not only is it safe toxic free household cleaner it works on veggies too!! I used two drops, (that right two drops!!) and it cleaned my fruits this morning.
This bottle of Basic H concentrate has over 48 gallons of cleaner in it. (Depending on how you use it)
*need a degreaser? Add 1 1/2 tsp to 16oz of water
*need an all purpose cleaner? Add 1/4 tsp to 16oz of water
*need to wash some Windows? Add 2 drops to 16oz of water
*need a fruit & veggie wash? Add 2 drops to a sink full of water.

We have been Cloth Diapering for 3 and a half years now (well we got a 2 month break between our 2 year old being potty trained and the birth of his brother) and we love it!!
I will be the first to admit that it has been a process figuring out a system with non toxic detergents. Before we found Shaklee, we were always trying new non toxic detergents and failed miserably. We always have to use some kind of detergent for sensitive skin because my husband will break out all over his body!!
So I found myself using Tide for the diapers and Ecos for the rest of our clothes. It drove me insane that I was putting toxic residue against my baby’s skin and washing it down the drain into our water system. It just felt like I was canceling out our eco friendlyness of the cloth diapers.
Then I found Shaklee and their Laundry Line and things improved greatly!! You can read about my cloth diaper routine here. I still struggled with keeping them bright and the stains away. In the summer it’s not a problem because I put them in the sun to dry and bleach but in the winter I needed something else.
So I came up with my own recipe for a cloth diaper spray!! It uses all non toxic products and has been a lifesaver for my diapers!! Its so important for me too make these diapers last (especially since we want another baby someday).
I have been working on perfecting a lactation smoothie that actually tastes good. My sister is having a baby in a couple of weeks and I am making her a New Mama Care Package for her to come home to after the birth.
I thought pre packaged smoothie packs would be a great addition since it is so easy to pop them in a blender, add milk, and blend for a healthy meal when you don’t have time to cook (or enough hands).
So after blending and tasting for a couple of weeks, I think I have it down. The oats, brewer’s yeast, and pure protein and omegas are a perfect combination to help promote lactation in a new mama!!
I recently made these delicious little snacks for my sister who is waiting to deliver her sweet baby any day now. I am adding them to the New Mama Care Package that I am making for her to come home to.
The oats, brewers yeast, high quality protein and omegas are all the perfect combination to help promote lactation in a new mama. Not to mention the easy healthy snack that it will provide her when her hands are full and she is forgetting to eat!!
My kids beg to make protein balls several times a week. We make these almost every weekend and then snack on them all week long. Have you tried these yet? When I was in Trader Joes this week, I saw protein balls for sale for $1.70 EACH….I love TJ’s BUT….THAT’S INSANE!!! I make my own for way cheaper and they are sooo yummy!!!
