Soaked Whole Wheat Tortillas

Soaked Whole Wheat Tortillas

Ever wonder why tortillas can stay in your refrigerator for months without going bad? Yeah, that’s the preservatives and other nasty ingredients at work.
The good news is that tortillas are ridiculously easy to make! What's even greater news is that you can make extra healthy tortillas by soaking them and using whole wheat flour!

Stevia - The Sweetener You Will Want to Try!


Stevia


















I have been searching for sugar alternatives for quite a while now. Sugar, as I’m sure everyone knows, is not good for you. Unfortunately, I like most Americans consume way too much sugar. Especially in my tea and I drink a lot of tea!

Sugar Free Challenge Dinner Menu


Sugar Free Challenge Dinner Menu
You can’t start a week long sugar free challenge without planning your menu out. If you don’t, you will definitely end up with a night where you let some sugar slip in.
My dinners are not fancy. Very simple. Very basic. Very cheap. Yeah, cheap that’s what it’s really about.

The "Everything in Moderation" Myth

Pistachio Product: 100% Pure Cosmetics


Pistachio Product: 100% Pure Cosmetics
I wear makeup. Not a ton, just enough. Now I suppose if I wanted to be extra crunchy, I’d give up my makeup ways and embrace my natural face…. But that’s not going to happen. I like my makeup.
Makeup does come with a long list of toxins. Many makeup brands contain lead, parabens, talc, and phthalates. That’s just a few of the many toxins in the products that we put on our face every single day!

Strawberry Ice Cream Alternative


Strawberry Ice Cream Alternative
Ice cream is yummy, there's no denying that! As an ice cream addict, I definitely enjoy it by the pints. However, let's face it, ice cream is not exactly healthy. Now I seriously doubt that I will ever give up my beloved ice cream, however I think I've found a good substitute that will at least help me buy my pints less often.

Fenugreek - For Breastfeeding

Fenugreek - For Breastfeeding

I don’t make milk like a normal mama. I’m a too low – bare minimum type mama. My two boys were formula fed or part formula fed. This time however, I’m able to solely breastfeed.
