Diabetic Treat: Sinfully Good

Okay, I’m about to drop a bomb on all my diabetic peeps!! My dad was a diabetic and one of the things he used to crave the most was sweets. Which was kinda funny, since, he never really ate sweets before he was diagnosed. But, anyway, for some reason he was REALLY craving them. So, being the awesome daughter that I am, I did some research on how to naturally quench his craving for sweets. There are many different ways for diabetics to curb their desire for sweets, but here’s one that tastes truly sinful…

How I Use Essential Oils In My Everyday Life

I use doTerra essential oils for so many things. I use them for cleaning, diffusing, in my homemade beauty products, on my pets and even in some of my recipes.

If You Don’t Have One of These, You Don’t Know What Your Missing!!

Back in October of 2016 I went on a trip to Costa Rica and stayed with a friend of mine. We got to talking about kitchen appliances and she told me about the programmable pressure cooker she & her daughter used. She told me it would change my life!!

I wasn’t so sure a kitchen appliance could change my life, but I told her I would check into it when I got back home to the states. Well, time came and went and I never really thought that much more about it. Continue reading “If You Don’t Have One of These, You Don’t Know What Your Missing!!”

Eat Chocolate, Ethically, Uniquely, Consciously

Ethically Sourced, Uniquely Made, Consciously Eaten!

Today I’m posting about something that brings two of my most favorite loves together. Sustainable living & CHOCOLATE!! I’m passionate about being a conscious consumer. I really do love chocolate, but, I haven’t always loved the way in which chocolate is sourced, cultivated, harvested and processed.

I’m sure you have heard the news, chocolate is good for you!! YAY!! But, hold on a minute, not all chocolate is good for you. Chances are the chocolate you are eating is VERY bad for you 😦 (bummer) Off the shelf chocolate has many things wrong with it, but I’ll just stick to the 4 worst health & environmental issues: Continue reading “Eat Chocolate, Ethically, Uniquely, Consciously”

Goood, Gravy!!

My dad’s side of the family are full bred southerns. You know, “Y’all want some iced tea”, kinda southerns. I heard the phrase “good gravy” a lot! But, never to actually describe the gravy? It was more of a way to not use the “Lord’s name in vain” or instead of using some unacceptable profanity. I guess the gravy was always good so there was no use saying how good the gravy was? :/ Continue reading “Goood, Gravy!!”
