Classic Cranberry Sauce

‘Tis the season for some traditional treats. Cranberries are one of those things that really set the holiday season in motion for me as soon as I can find them in the grocery store. The clerk cashing me out usually isn’t too impressed with my excitement, and it’s only in recent years I came to…

Homemade Laundry Detergent

With more all-natural products coming out all the time, often with hefty price tags, it’s a clever skill to be able to craft your own cleaners and detergents that are equally as friendly for you as they are for the environment. Homemade laundry soap is one of the easiest how-to’s out there and it can save…

Ask For Paper

Today is another beautiful eco-friendly Friday and TGIF because a lot of people truly need a weekly bit of education on simple earth-saving techniques. Today we are going to cover perhaps the easiest life change you can make that costs absolutely nothing to do. The only thing you need to do is remember. When you go to the…

Buy Less Plastic

Happy eco-friendly Friday everyone! This one seems like a super obvious topic but let’s touch base on some of the things we buy without giving it a single thought. We’ve already gone over toothbrushes and disposable razors in some of our earlier discussions, but there are so many other household items that come in plastic…

The No Cholesterol Choice That Can Help Save You and the Environment

Welcome to this weeks eco-friendly Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful work week and is ready to kick off the weekend with some potential new life choices. Don’t worry, I’m not about to tell you to put on some slippers and cancel all of your plans, although I can recommend some stellar Netflix…

Decluttering: Expectations vs. Reality

I’m definitely a freak for a clean house, but who else gets royally jazzed up over having the chores done? Last Thursday afternoon I went to my couch, commandeered my television from my kids, and faced Mount Laundry yet again. After seeing some people post about the show Tidying Up on Netflix, I decided to…

Why My Kids Aren’t Vegans

This has been a question that I’ve had to answer quite a few times since I went vegan. Are your kids vegan now? And the short answer is no, they’re not. But if I think that veganism is a better diet, better for the economy and the environment then why on Earth would I be…

Positivity Planner

Color me guilty I can be quite the bitter Betty somedays. A real negative Nancy. Even the occasional Debbie downer. I hate it but when I find myself stuck in a funk it can be really difficult to knock myself out of it. Please tell me I’m not the only one. The worst part for…

Sunday Funnies

Back in about January, I think it was, I purchased a new dining room table for our family because the one that we previously owned was only big enough for a few of us to sit at. It just wasn’t practical and not having enough seats or space for all five of us really bothered…

Vegan Cherry-Peach Cobbler

We’re a little bit hooked on cobbler right now. The boys think they’re just eating cake, I get to introduce them to new fruits, and we all get dessert. Everybody wins. A lot of this recipe is similar to the Vegan Blueberry Cobbler recipe, but I did a little more than just swapping out fruit. First of…
