Got ants?! Make your own natural ant killer but make sure the pets can’t get to it. Mix 1 cup of water, 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of borax and stir well. We put it in disposable lids of containers so we can just pitch them the next day. Place them where you see ants. This works very well! I’ll spare you the “after” pic which sometimes is so covered with dead ants that it looks solid black. This is so much safer than spraying pesticides. #ants #pesticidefree #natural #borax #nochemicals #momblog #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #itworks #happyhealthyfamily #nontoxic #notforpets #ecofriendly #20muleteam #borax

Sustainable Saturday! In an effort to be more sustainable and have less waste, I switched to loose leaf tea. I got those cute little tea strainers that sit on your cup on Amazon. #sustainable #reusable #reducereuserecycle #ecofriendly #tea #amazon #momblog #healthylifestyle #healthyliving #nowaste #noplastic #refreshing #happyhealthyfamily

Looking for a cleaner face cleanser? Look no further! My 23 year old daughter uses this every day and swears by it. When I asked how it made her skin feel she said hydrated, cleansed, and smooth! Acure is a clean brand that is free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, petroleum and silicone. It’s so clean that it is a 0 on the Think Dirty app. Of course it’s also cruelty free. #acure #cleanbeauty #vegan #crueltyfree #skincare #cleansingcream #greenbeauty #sensitiveskin #momblog #healthyliving #maketheswitch #wellness #selfcare #parabenfree #sulfatefree #thinkdirty #healthylifestyle #happyhealthyfamily

Avocados—nature’s gift! Avocados are a very nutrient-dense food containing nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. They are good for heart health, vision, preventing osteoporosis & cancer, lowing risk for depression, and improving digestion! Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium—all real nutrients, nothing created in a lab! They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Healthy and yummy—that’s a win-win! Enjoy some today. #avocado #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #organic #organicfood #healthyliving #momblog #happyhealthyfamily #yum #nutritious #youarewhatyoueat #hearthealth #anticancer #guacamole

Gloves! We put a box of gloves in each of our cars and put on a pair (along with a mask ) before we get out of the car to go grocery shopping or get gas. We take them off before we get back in the car by turning them inside out as we remove them and throwing them away (at the gas station ) or putting in one of our grocery bags to be properly thrown away at home. I got them on Amazon. #stopthespread #stayathome #savelives #covid_19 #coronavirus #gloves #momblog #healthyliving #happyhealthyfamily #healthylifestyle #alonetogether #thistooshallpass #staywell #amazon

Masks help! That must be why China, which originated this disease and which has 5 times the population of the US, has way less positive Covid 19 and related deaths.

Another immune booster! Our doctor recommended that we also take 5000 IU ( or 125 mcg ) per day of D3 to help make our immune system stronger. Nature’s Way is a very good brand, especially since it is so clean and soy-free.

More immune boosting to stay healthy! Cod Liver Oil gel caps are a great way to get your vitamin A—another known fighter of viruses in the alternative medicine world. Also helps with heart health. ❤️ We are all taking one of these daily. I get this at Vitacost.

Vitamin C has been used to treat Coronavirus all over the world!!! Pure Vitamin C by Allergy Research Group is a very good one because it is unbuffered (as opposed to buffered which is what almost all of the kinds are that you can buy ). I get it on line at Vitacost. Unbuffered vitamin C has always been used in alternative medicine to treat viruses while traditional medicine believes you can’t treat them. Hopefully, seeing such success world wide will get doctors in the US to start using it. Each capsule of Pure Vitamin C has 1 g in it. We’ve all been taking one morning and night recently to help keep us healthy. Consider adding this along with all of the other things you are doing. #vitaminc #unbuffered #allergyresearchgroup #coronavirus #covid19 #alternativemedicine #nutritionalsupplements #killsviruses #purevitaminc #momblog #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #happyhealthyfamily #stayhome #stopthespread #savelives #vitacost

Oscillococcinum! A doctor recommended that everyone in our family take a one-time dose of this to add to everything else we are doing to stay healthy amidst the Coronavirus. It’s a popular homeopathic medicine that claims to help flu-like symptoms. We’ve had a lot of success with homeopathy and it’s all with no side effects. There has been a lot of talk about hand washing and social distancing (which is great ), but I haven’t heard much about immune boosting and that is also a critical part of staying healthy. You can find it at health food stores and on line at places like Vitacost. #oscillococcinum #boiron #homeopathy #nosideeffects #immunebooster #vitacost #coronavirus #covid19 #handwashing #socialdistancing #momblog #healthyliving #healthylifestyle # #happyhealthyfamily #stayhome #stopthespread #savelives #staywell

Beef stew in the Instant Pot! So easy and delicious! Put water, olive oil, salt, paprika, pepper, thyme, parsley & garlic in the Instant Pot & stir. Add the roast & pressure cook for 5-15 minutes (depending on if you want your meat rare or easy to shred with a fork ), then natural release for 5 minutes, then quick release. Add carrots, celery, potatoes & onions and pressure cook for another 7 minutes, then natural release for 5 minutes, then pressure release. Take out all ingredients leaving only the broth in the pot, turn on sauté & stir in the tapioca flour, stirring almost constantly for 3 minutes as the broth turns into a thicker gravy & turn off the heat. Cut/shred the meat & return veggies to the pot & stir. My daughter said this is her new favorite meal that I have ever made. Gluten & dairy free have never tasted so good! It’s hearty and really fills you up. I put the leftovers in glass locking bowls & freeze for later in the Hot Logic. I love cooking in bulk—it’s such a timesaver. Enjoy! Ingredients: Beef chuck pot roast 4-5 lbs 2 cups of water 3 T of olive oil 1 1/2 T of salt 1 T paprika 1 1/2 t of each pepper, thyme, parsley & garlic 8 carrots and celery 5 potatoes 1 med onion 2T tapioca flour #instantpot #instantpotrecipes #organic #organicfood #stew #beef #whole30 #whole30recipes #glutenfree #dairyfree #gfcfsfdiet #leftovers #hotlogicmini #lunch #dinner #bulkcooking #nocanopener #nomicrowave #momblog #healthyeating #healthyliving #happyhealthyfamily #yum #youarewhatyoueat #gravy #roast #reducereuserecycle #ecofriendly #glass #quarantinecooking

Want improved respiratory health? 100% pure frankincense—it relaxes the bronchials when they are constricted. I close one nostril and put the bottle right up against the other nostril and take a long, slow inhale and hold for as long as I can, exhale and then take a few slow, deep breaths. Then, repeat with the other nostril. I’ve been using frankincense, along with taking Solaray’s Total Cleanse Respiratory and Evening Primrose Oil (see previous post on July 7, 2019 on respiratory support ), daily as a way to give myself some extra protection during COVID 19. Stay well! #frankincense #essentialoils #respiratory #breathe #breatheeasy #auracacia #revive #solaray #totalcleanse #eveningprimroseoil #deva #momblog #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #happyhealthyfamily #coronavirus #covid_19

New favorite gluten free cookie: Simple Mills Crunchy Toasted Pecan! This tastes good for a cookie, not just a gluten free cookie!!! You won’t have any guilt because it is sooo clean! It’s made with a nut blend of almonds, pecans & coconuts, no bad oils, nothing artificial and even very low sugar with about 1 gram per cookie using only organic coconut sugar to sweeten! Win-win!

Homemade high nutrient dog food! 🐶 Our 3 year old dog started acting like a senior dog until we started making his dog food. The vet said she didn’t like any type of dried kibble (and we were giving him an organic, grain free kind ) so we thought we’d give it a try. All I know is Jet has spunk again! We make it in bulk and freeze (just like we do the human food 😝 ).

Air fries—a much healthier version but just as yummy!!! I love my new air frying Instant Pot!!! Even good oils convert to bad when deep frying, but that’s a non issue when you air fry. Cut fries and soak for 30 minutes in ice cold water. Then rinse and pat dry then stir in 2 T of olive oil & air fry at 400° for 19 minutes, stirring when there’s about 5 minutes left. Salt to taste. Could not be easier!

Air chilled organic chicken! According to Dr. Oz, this is THE best chicken you can buy! All I know is it’s pricey, but THE tastiest and juiciest chicken I’ve ever eaten! I get it at Whole Foods & it is so easy in the Instant Pot (put the chicken on top of a trivet with 1 1/2 cups of water and pressure cook for 30 minutes and natural release for at least 5 minutes )! We used to get the organic rotisserie chickens at Whole Foods, but now that we’ve discovered this we make our own at home and it tastes SO much better!

Fish oil! We’ve all heard how it’s good for heart health, but there are so many other benefits such as helping with depression, inflammation, eyes & skin health just to name a few. Here are the kinds our family takes. It’s important to make sure that any fish oil you take is clean so that you aren’t inadvertently ingesting mercury. Best way to do that is to look for name brands that have third party independent batch testing. Also, look for fresh catch in cold waters because that is cleaner. Here’s to your health! #fishoil #hearthealth #inflammation #depression #independenttesting #batchtesting #vitacost #nordicnaturals #olympianlabs #oneaday #nomercy #momblog #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #happyhealthyfamily #xymogen #omega3 .
