How to make bone broth and why it’s healthy

Bone broth. I started seeing those two words all over the web recently. I wondered, what's the big deal with bone broth? I always made my own chicken or veggie stock so I wondered, 'What is the difference? Isn't all broth the same? Just boil some meat and bones and you got broth/stock, right?"Well, I had to learn the difference fast since the GAPS diet protocol that I started my kids on hinged ...

Non-Toxic Dishwasher Detergent Tablets

It seems that I am the only one in my family who knows how to use the laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent. Whenever my family tries to run the dishwasher, they'd yell, "How many scoops of this white powder and how many cups of the vinegar?

It looked so creamy, warm, and inviting. I wanted to slurp the soup right off my screen. Doesn't it look delicious? Also, she had me at "....only takes 15-20 minutes.."! I had to make the soup.The only trouble ...

What School Lunches Look Like Worldwide

When my kids were in elementary school, they didn't want to eat school lunches. They said, and I quote, "They serve microwaved frozen foods Mom!" I told them, some frozen foods are good! But the kids insisted, those were not edible frozen foods. I admired their discerning tastes and instincts as I chuckled while patting myself on the back for raising health conscious kids. I was not trying to be ...

Furniture Retailers Eliminate Flame Retardants

Image by chaquetadepollo via Flickr My family room furniture is old. Like 14 years old. When we moved to our first house after we had our baby, we lived without furniture for a year so we can save money to buy good great quality furniture that lasts. Well, time has come to replace them because the fabric is fraying and the cushions have seen better days.But I've been hesitant because of the ...
