Veggie Scrap Broth

I keep my veggie scrap bag close whenever chopping veggies so that I can easily add to it. Yes, it’s a plastic bag (ugh!), but I didn’t buy this ziploc bag; it was given to me with something else in it and I continue to reuse for veggie scraps so it’s getting its use more…

Veggie Oatmeal

All this rainy, cold weather has resulted in some serious nesting over here, complete with warming, filling breakfasts. This morning I raided my produce drawer in the fridge to get rid of the odds and ends before the farmer’s market tonite, and in the process came up with this delicious oatmeal for the boys and…

I uncovered this when I did my birth chart recently and found it pretty amazing: Neptune is in 19 Degrees Sagittarius.

Banana-rama

Yesterday afternoon I was racking my brain on what to bring to a Girls Nite In potluck using ingredients that were already in the house, as the boys were napping and I couldn’t get to the grocery store. In perusing the cabinets and fridge, I saw a bunch of overly ripe bananas waiting for a…

I love loading up my meals with nutrients..including my smoothies. It’s the quickest, easiest way to get the most health benefits and as a mom of 2 toddlers, I need quick and easy!

According to Dictionary.com, Sustainable is defined as pertaining to a system that maintains its own viability by using techniques that allow for continual reuse.

The #1 A-word you want to be

Awesome, Amazing, Admirable…all great words, but the one I’m referring to is most important to all of us – alkaline. Let’s go back to high school chemistry class…remember the pH scale?

Squash Pot

We’ve finally hit some cooler temps here in southern California and I’m been craving all the Fall things. My neighbor has a beautiful little garden that had about 4 butternut squash ripe on the vine. She let us have one and all I could think about was chili! I tend to keep a pretty full…
