I couldn’t resist sharing a few of the stunningly gorgeous photos from my husband’s trip to Antarctica two weeks ago. This is what I wanted to see most of all… the turquoise icebergs. He said they truly are this bold aquamarine color! Links I loved this week: Becoming Debt Free & 6 Odd Tips That Helped Us @ The Nester.

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 2 Annual Memberships to “No More To Go” Menu Plans ($64 Value Each)

This seems to be the week for giveaways geared to meal planning and cooking from scratch! Today’s giveaway is a little bit different, though. Typically I share a lot about doing your own meal planning, but I know that for many people, that’s still a daunting thought. Particularly for those still making the transition to real foods and looking for ways to cut down on the planning time that goes along with eating better, No More To Go just might be the perfect solution. Instead […]

Winter Giveaway Week: Win a ProPur BIG Water Filter System (valued at $290)!

ProPur

There’s no way around it: water is a vital part of our everyday lives. I love to chug down a tall glass of cold (but not ice cold, please!) water to quench my thirst – there’s just nothing quite like it. There’s also nothing quite like the taste of chlorine and sediment and general grossness that all too often comes along with tap water. Blech! I am very thankful to have access to relatively clean water whenever we want it. That is definitely not the […]

Making real food understandable (and the transition to it achievable) is a huge priority for me as a blogger. Coming from a background of being raised on primarily processed foods and having to both learn to acquire a taste for real food, as well as learn to cook it, has given me a genuine desire to want to offer resources to help make the transition easier for others than it was for me. Over the past month and a half, we’ve been writing about “Real […]

Meal planning is such a must for busy moms and homemakers. Even as we’re spending a year traveling around the world (yes, really- you can read about it here), I’m still realizing the need for it. Just this afternoon, I drew up a list of the foods I’ve managed to stock up in our small, temporary pantry and kitchen. I took that list and went straight to my Plan to Eat account. Last spring, I mentioned that I had been finding my Plan to Eat […]

Winter Giveaway Week: Win 1 of 3 Gift Certificates to Apple Valley Natural Soap

There are very few things that I would consider important enough to put in the crazy expensive FedEx package that we’re having shipped to Argentina. My Apple Valley Shampoo Bars? They made the cut. Seriously, I am in love with my shampoo bars. Back in the summer, I made a massive order from Apple Valley Natural Soap, buying enough shampoo bars, a few regular body soap bars, and our favorite healing herbal salve to last for the entire year that we’ll be traveling. Every few […]
