Easy Organic Sprouted Flour Pancakes (For the Oven)

Our family loves eating pancakes, but I (don’t really enjoy) standing over the stove flipping pancakes in the morning. So I love making these pancakes that you pop right in the oven! They’re so easy to make and my kids call them “brownie pancakes” even though they’re the same as pancakes you would make on the stovetop. I often make a double batch and the kids eat them for snacks later in the day, or I just mix together the dry ingredients and store in a freezer bag to use for another time. I got this recipe here, but adapted…

How To Make Your Own Organic Bone Broth

There’s a South American proverb that goes like this, “Good broth can raise the dead.” Now, I’ve never raised any dead people back to life with the stock that I make, but I do know how much my entire family loves it! I wanted to share with you a super easy recipe for homemade chicken stock, which goes a LONG way toward health year round, but especially during cold & flu season!Β  I make my broth in my Instant Pot on the slow cooker setting. I typically let it simmer for at least 20-24 hours. I use a whole chicken…

How To Make An Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Mask For Gorgeous Hair

Sometimes you just need a little pampering, and you don’t need to look further than your own pantry to find it. I’ve been loving a simple, easy to prepare hair mask that you can make in less than 5 minutes and leaves your hair shiny, soft, and full of body. Apple cider vinegar naturally rinses hair, and gets rid of excess grime, buildup, and excessive oils. The oil counteracts any drying effect apple cider vinegar could have, and nourishes the hair along with the honey. Geranium is a natural hair strengthener and helps your hair achieve the proper pH.

Review of Seventh Generation Natural Dishwashing Detergent

Ah, the dishes….. Are they your never ending, constant friend (and foe) like they are mine? Do they multiply like rabbits, come from every corner of the house looking for you…and never leave your side like the most loyal of companions? I know. They are the unconquerable dishes. But there’s good news. Even in the natural and organic world there are products that can clean just as well as any chemical- laden, toxic alternative. Leaving dishes sparkly, clean, and without chemical residues. I’ve used so so many over the years, but my most recent favorite is Seventh Generation’s Power Packs,…

When life gives you lemons…my story.

You never know when your life is about to change. For good or for ill. We take so much for granted as humans. We think we are in control, that the world is an instrument in our fingers, that we are in control of our own destiny, our own bodies, but we aren’t. I found this truth out the hard way. In July of 2004, I flew on an airplane to join my family in Los Angeles, California for a Christian conference. I was 18 years old, and had just graduated from college several days prior, and was getting married…

So….I broke my toe….😭😭😭

Sometimes life doesn’t go as we planned. Don’t you wish it would? I was sitting on my couch, and got up too quickly and walked RIGHT into my rebounder (the best mini trampoline, best workout in all the world) and hit my second toe right on one of the legs. I moaned in pain and figured it was fine…until I tried to walk ….and then noticed how misshapen it was at the bottom. 😩 😩 😩 I did gymnastics for my entire childhood and only suffered one minor injury, despite years of flipping on 4 inch balance beams 4 feet off the ground,…
