Buying Organic Food

This post contains sponsored materials.

 

Buying organic fruits and vegetables is a priority in my home. There are so many pesticides and chemicals found in conventionally grown produce. I prefer to buy organic when I can.

Have you heard of the “dirty dozen”? These are fruits and vegetables you should always buy organic. Included are: apples, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, grapes, celery, spinach, sweet bell peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas, and potatoes. They show higher concentrations of pesticides, which you can avoid by buying organic.

Organic YumEarth Gummy Bears for Kids on Valentines Day

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.

 

It seems like there is a reason to indulge in sweet treats every month. I am still recovering from the Holidays! February is often associated with sweet treats with the celebration of Valentines Day. I am not a huge fan of many heart shaped candies that make an appearance this time of year, but I do like the occasional sweet treat. While I am secretly pining for locally made chocolate covered sea salt caramels, my kids have their eyes on Valentines goodies for their classmates.

 

One of my favorite candy companies is YumEarth. Their treats are made with organic cane sugar and do not contain artificial dyes or preservatives. This year my kids are going to pass out YumEarth Gummy Bears!

Fun Valentines Cards for Kids

Product was given to me in order to post my honest opinion.

 

As my kids get older, they look forward to Valentine’s Day more and more. They love passing out cards and treats, and getting them too! Let’s be honest…they mostly love getting sweet treats!!! This year I found the perfect cards for my kids to pass out.

 

Peaceable Kingdom has created a variety of fun and interactive cards for kids to pass out to their friends. My kids are both in school, so they need enough for their classmates. I know my kids will also want to pass out extra cards to friends outside their classrooms.

New Year, New Blog Series

 

I often have people ask me what steps they can take in order to live a more natural lifestyle. One thing I tell them is to find one area in their life that they want to change and to start with that. I am going to be addressing different themes throughout the year, which will give you ideas for living a more natural lifestyle. Each month I will feature chemical free alternatives, DIY projects, recipes, and ideas to help eliminate toxins from our everyday lives.

 

Here are the themes for the next couple of months.
