DIY Cleaning Products

Maybe it was the shamefully overflowing and crowded space under our kitchen sink, or maybe it was the way my eyes and throat burned every time I cleaned the shower, but I have given up on commercial cleaning products. And, it feels good! Stroll down the cleaning aisle at any supermarket, and you’ll see an […]

What You Need to Know About Bottled Water

What You Need to Know About Bottled Water

Recently, California-based Niagara bottling company issued a recall of its bottled spring water following an E. coli scare at two of its plants.

Grass-Fed Beef: What you Need to Know

When people ask me if I eat meat, I cringe, knowing that my answer of “it’s complicated” is eye-roll inducing for many people.

5 Reasons to Buy Bulk Foods

Recently, to save my marriage, I purged, cleaned and organized our kitchen pantry. Mr. President was getting so stinkin’ mad at me for letting our pantry get so out of control.

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

Do you ever think about the future of food – your food? I talk a lot about eating home-cooked foods made with locally-grown ingredients. Some of the food we eat at our house is as local as you can get because it comes straight from our backyard. But, if you don’t have the space, time […]

Recycling Christmas Trees

Recycling Christmas Trees

When I was a kid, I used to feel sad for Christmas trees. I thought it was such a shame that perfectly gorgeous trees were sacrificed so that we could have holiday decor. And, before I knew much about sustainable living, I bought my first Christmas tree – an artificial one with the lights already […]

The Fight for GMO Labeling: Barking Up the Wrong Tree?

The Fight for GMO Labeling: Barking Up the Wrong Tree?

Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that the fight to get GMO foods (genetically-modified organisms) labeled as such is a pretty big deal these days. Everyone seems to have an opinion, so I’ll share mine: I have not passionately joined the fight for GMO labeling, and I think we have a bigger fight in […]

Monarch Butterfly Decline: How You Can Help

Monarch Butterfly Decline: How You Can Help

When I was a little girl, I used to love seeing the dramatic orange and black monarch butterflies flitting around our yard. It was a fairly common sight, but each one was no less special. Now I may be all grown up with a car and a mortgage, but these treasures of our natural world […]

Vermicomposting: The Basics

Vermicomposting: The Basics

I’d like to introduce you to my industrious army of little garden helpers. Their names are Eisenia foetida, all 2000+ of them. I’m using these cool little red wiggler worms to help me build great soil in my garden through vermicomposting. Now that we’re getting settled in our new home, I’m back to creating a more […]
