Inexpensive Produce Wash | Being Frugal

Today I wanted to share a little secret with to wash your produce using a safe, nontoxic product that only costs pennies on the dollar!

What is it? Shaklee's Basic H! Yes, that's right...we use Basic H to clean our produce from the store all the time! A question I'm asked a lot, "They sell Veggie Wash at Target (WalMart, grocery store, etc). Can't I just use that?" 

Yes, they do and yes, you can! But let's talk price comparison first. A 16oz bottle of veggie wash costs about $4. Not bad, right? Well, if you go through a bottle say every two weeks, that adds up to about $105 per year on a veggie wash ALONE! WHAT?!?

Now how about spending just $.20 to clean your produce? That's right, just PENNIES compared to DOLLARS to get your produce clean! And, there are zero harmful chemicals to worry about! Did you know that one 16oz bottle of Shaklee's Basic H makes over 200 bottles of cleaner? And that bottle of Basic H is only $10.35 (MP)!

Now, not everyone can afford to buy strictly organic produce, my family included. We are trying to do the best we can, but organic is EXPENSIVE and not always in the budget, so we decided the next best thing we can do is use a safe wash for all our produce. 

Shaklee has been around for 54 years making natural and organic cleaning products, which is why my husband and I trust their products for our family. And, it's why we chose to partner with them! Shaklee is all about making a difference in people's lives!

Here's your super easy, inexpensive, nontoxic veggie wash!
  • 1/8-1/4 teas of Shaklee Basic H
  • Fill your sink or big bowl of water
  • Soak your produce for about 5-10 minutes
  • Rinse 
  • Enjoy your clean produce!

Three Day Mini Cleanse | Day Two

I'm checking in with my day two of the mini cleanse I'm doing! Today was much easier than yesterday! I didn't have any sweet cravings, which is my downfall. We frequently have homemade chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar, and they're so easy to grab and munch on as a snack. But today, I didn't even think about them. Woot!
I was only able to get in about 10 minutes of HIIT because the boys were all over me today. No worries; I'll try again tomorrow!

Sweet potato juice with added Instant Soy Protein. We like to add the protein to our juices because...well just juice doesn't have enough protein to get me through an hour, let alone til my mid-morning snack!

Chocolate 180 Smoothee with homemade almond milk

Snacks (one in the morning; one in the afternoon)
1 c fresh strawberries
1 organic string cheese
1 c popcorn/rice cake things

Penne pasta with roasted corn, poblano, bell pepper, and grilled chicken (recipe coming tomorrow!)

64 oz
Not bad! Just one more day and I'll be mini-cleansed!

Lunch in 30 Seconds?? Yes!!

Hi everyone! Today I'm vlogging...yikes! Here's how you can make a nutritious, filling, YUMMY Shaklee 180 Smoothee in about 30 seconds!

Three Day Mini Cleanse | Getting Back on Track

Hi there!

Today I started a three day mini cleanse. The past two weeks have been off kilter for us. Our youngest son (2 years old) had an accident two weeks ago. Thank the Lord he's a-ok, just missing a few of his teeth! Yikes! It could've been worse, but we're forever thankful it wasn't. Anyway, we had a few stressful days trying to keep him comfortable and feed him foods that were soft so he could eat!

That said, the stress of it all led to stress eating for me, along with totally stopping my workouts! No bueno! My favorite shorts are getting a little snug, I feel sluggish from not having a consistent workout's time to get back on track!

I do this mini cleanse several times a year, when things come up. It's safe, it's easy, and the best part of all...once I've completed the cleanse, I feel so much better, with more energy...just ready to take it all on!

Now, this cleanse is NOT a weight loss cleanse. It's simply a way to detox my body, get rid of all the bad food (Kincaid's Hamburgers, Mi Cocina queso, a margarita here and there, chocolate chip cookies!) and start fresh, ready to get back on a healthy eating and workout plan!

This is my Day One accountability check in!

1 "Butterfinger" Shaklee 180 Smoothee. 2 scoops of vanilla 180 mix, about 1 teaspoon of Chocolate PB2, and 8oz of homemade almond milk

1 cup grapes, 12 raw almonds

1 Chocolate Shaklee 180 Smoothee. 2 scoops of chocolate 180 mix and 8oz of almond milk. I also take my Vitalizer strip. I have to wait til I've been up for awhile before taking my vitamins! 
(Note: I get the Lean & Healthy 180 Kit, which has 2 containers of Smoothee mixes and the Vitalizer! It's set up on autoship so it arrives at the same time every month and I don't have to think about it. I get mine for free...and you can too!)

1 organic string cheese, 1 clementine orange

Small piece of grilled chicken, about a cup of mixed grilled veggies

Water: 65oz (a good trick to make sure you're getting enough is to divide your weight in half. That's how many ounces you'll need each day)


I also did 20 minutes of HIIT (high intensity interval training). It wasn't 20 straight minutes because the boys kept interrupting me, but I got it all in eventually!

Today was HARD for me. I've gotten so used to the unhealthy eating, that my body was like, "What? No cookies today?" I also had a headache for awhile, but after drinking all my water, it finally flushed out!

I don't expect to lose any weight, but I'm certain my favorite shorts are going to fit better by Wednesday night! I'll be back tomorrow with Day 2 Accountability Check In!

Have you ever done a mini cleanse? Did it work for you?

Keeping Kids Healthy | Back to School Tips

It seems like most families in states around us have already started school. Here in north Texas school doesn't start until next week, and our boys start preschool in September!
Now is the time to get organized for our kids health for this school year! If you're like me, an ideal school year would involve no sick days, no tummy aches, no runny noses...could we just keep them in a sterile little bubble?
Here are a few of my best tips for starting the school year off happy and healthy!

Eat Clean and Healthy!
When our boys (and us parents too!) are eating clean with minimal junk food, their little bodies don't have to work as hard to stay healthy. We juice almost daily, we offer fresh fruits and vegetables at every meal and for most snacks, and we eat fish and chicken a few times per week for proteins. 

Here are some of our favorite clean eating recipes:
Juice recipes
Grilled Veggie Tacos
Homemade Honey Wheat Bread
Grilled Fish Tacos
Eggplant Caponata

Pop Those Multivitamins!
Even though we strive to get the most nutrients we can through food, it's just not enough...for various reasons. We can't always afford to buy organic but we do the best we can. To supplement the nutritional gaps, we started the whole family on a great natural vitamin and supplement regimen about a year ago. I partner with the number one natural nutrition company, so naturally I recommend their vitamins, but it's really more than that. We've been really healthy since starting this regimen and being consistent about it. This past winter was our least sick winter on record! We had ZERO sick visits to the doctor for the entire family for NINE MONTHS! Woot!

Here's what the boys take daily. In fact, they call me out if I get distracted and forget!

You can read about what's in our natural medicine cabinet here.

Keep Germs Away!
This goes without saying, but since our kids are going to be around other kids and in more germy places, remind them to wash their hands with soap frequently! And do it at home too! Sometimes it's not possible to wash hands, so keeping a safe, nontoxic hand sanitizer with you (and even in the kids backpacks) is a good idea. Our favorite it Young Living's Thieves. 

Another thing I do to help keep the bacteria and germs at bay is to apply Thieves essential oil to the bottoms of the boys feet before they head off to school, playdates, or places like a bounce house. It smells just like the Thieves hand sanitizer. Yum!

Get Some Zzzz's!
I don't know about you, but I feel so much better when I'm well rested and have had enough sleep at night. We are pretty structured when it comes to sleep for our kids...they're both in bed by 8pm every night. Our boys need their 10-11 hours of sleep. When they don't get it, they're overly tired and their little bodies have a harder time fighting off the germs! 

I'd love to hear what you do to help keep your kids healthy through the school year and answer any questions you may have!

Juicing Recipes! | Drink to Your Health!

We've totally gotten addicted to this juicing phenomenon! It's a great way to get the boys to have their daily greens that they're not so good at eating. We still give them actual veggies at mealtimes but juicing is just an extra way to keep them healthy!

While juicing is healthy, it's really just fiber. So we give each juice concoction an extra healthy punch by adding instant soy protein mix to the juice. It adds 16g of non GMO soy protein! It's flavorless and can be used for so many other things that need that extra bit of protein. We love it and you can get it here!

We are still experimenting with our juice recipes, but here are two of our favorites! Let me know if you try them!

Strawberry-Watermelon Popsicles | Easy Healthy Treat

Our boys love popsicles. As in they request them even when it's 40 degrees outside! Crazy boys! Anyway, I don't like to buy popsicles from the store because they're loaded with HFCS, food dyes, loads of sugar, and other fake ingredients. And really, making your own popsicles is so easy! And it's a great activity for the kids to do. Who doesn't want to push the ON button on the blender??

Here are our favorite summer popsicles: Strawberry-Watermelon! It seriously takes less than five minutes to whip these babies up! Plus, it's a great way to use up some produce that may be on it's last leg in the fridge.

  • Simply cut up strawberries and watermelon (or any fruit of your choice).
  • Blend it up in the blender. No sugar needed for these!
  • Pour into your favorite popsicle molds and pop in the freezer! These Norpro Silicone Molds and the Orka Twist Pop Molds are our favorites. The twisted ones are perfect for the toddler and the Norpro's are great for the preschooler.
  • A refreshing healthy treat for the family will be ready in about two hours!
What's your family's favorite popsicle combination?

5 Reasons to Use Epsom Salt | Homemade Epsom Salt Foot Scrub

Do you have any Epsom salt in your home? If not, you might consider getting some! Epsom salt has a lot of wonderful natural benefits!

Epsom salt is made up of naturally occurring minerals magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways. A lack of magnesium, which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enymes in the body, can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems, and other health issues. Sulfate is essential for many biolocial processes, helping to flush toxinc and helping form proteins in joints, brin tissue and mucin proteins. via Epsom Salt Council

Here are our top 5 uses for Epsom salt! We love it!

  1. Soak bath - add 1 cup of Epsom salt to warm bath and soak for 20 minutes. 
  2. Homemade foot scrub (recipe below!)
  3. Fade bruises - make a compress of cold water and Epsom salt then apply to skin.
  4. Feed your plants - mix 2 T of Epsom salt to 1 gallon of water.

Do You Clean? | Check Out this Product!

School is almost back in session here in Texas! I don't know about you, but when we have upcoming changes to our routine, I get the cleaning bug. I want everything to be bright, shiny and clean when we start back up to preschool this year!

So today I'm going to share with you my absolute favorite cleaning product; one I use exclusively for our home: Basic H Organic Cleaning Concentrate.  I've talked about it before, but friends, I just can't talk enough about it! It is so versatile!

I use it to clean counters, dust furniture, clean windows and mirrors, mop floors, clean bathrooms, wash my dogs (YES!), rinse off vegetables, and so much more!

Not only is it versatile, but it's the cheapest, and safest cleaner you can find. And don't let me WORKS! (It's even cheaper than white vinegar, plus it doesn't stink!)

Here is a fantastic list of ways you can use this organic, nontoxic, safe, effective Shaklee cleaner in your home!
  • Dishes: 1/2 teaspoon in the dishpan. Fill with dishes and let stand for a few minutes to loosen food.
  • Automatic dishwashers: Use Shaklee Dishwasher Concentrate
  • Spot Remover: Apply Basic H directly on the spotted area. Use a toothbrush or finger to rub in. Wipe off with a damp cloth or rinse. Great for coffee, lipstick, ink, or grass removal!
  • Cleaning Hands: Put a few drops in your hand and rub thoroughly with a bit of water. Rinse as usual. Great for removing tobacco stains, onion, and garlic!
  • Gum: Use full strength
  • Ironing: A few drops in your iron will help prevent rusty water from coming out of the steamer.
Other Important Things to Remember!
  • Basic H is the most economical cleaner you can buy. One quart makes 192 gallons of cleaning solution by following directions.
  • DO NOT USE MORE THAN RECOMMENDED! A little goes a long way! Save $$!
  • Basic H contains no acids, no alkalis, no kerosene or solvent, and has no offensive or detergent odor.
  • Basic H has pH factor of 6.5, right in the range of human skin.
  • Basic H makes water many times wetter.
  • Basic H is a fantastically versatile cleaner. The successor is soap!
  • Basic H does not hinder bacterial action of septic tanks or cesspools.
  • In extremely stubborn areas of grease or stains, use Shaklee’s Scour Off scouring cleaner. (It lasts forever and smells like cherries!!)
I recommend starting with our 
  • Get Clean Starter Kit (regular or unscented)
  • Scour Off (did I mention it smells like cherries??)
  • Basic G (germicide - not mentioned in this post, but it's going to replace all your toxic bleaches!)

I want to be honest, I am not trying to sell you these products just to make a buck. I believe in Shaklee's Get Clean line and doing what's right for my family and for our environment! Using natural, nontoxic, fragrance free products that WORK and don't have HARSH CHEMICALS around my kids is the right thing to do! (Hint: if you like your cleaners to have a fragrance, a few drops of essential oils can do that!)
Not only is the Get Clean line natural and safe...the products actually WORK! I mean it! I would not spend this much time on a post for something that doesn't work! BONUS: they save you money too!
If you're not a member already, I encourage you to join my Member Team! You have the option to earn free product within your first 30 days of membership, have online support, join a community of likeminded friends, get member only specials and get your home and family HEALTHIER! 
Join me in the mission to create healthier, happier lives! Thank you!!

Getting Juiced Up | Adding Nutrition to Your Diet

While we work really hard to get the best nutrition possible into our boys, they are young still and can be a bit picky when it comes to vegetable eating. Our oldest is pretty good about it; he loves red bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, and he'll even eat salad on occasion. The youngest...not so much. He does like broccoli but that's about it.

Do you juice? It seems to be a big deal lately! We recently inherited a Jack Lalanne juicer and decided to give juicing a try so we can get some of those veggies into the boys. So far we really like it! Along with their daily multivitamin and probiotics, we think adding the veggie juices to their diet will really help round out their nutrition!

We've used several recipes, but have found that we just like to clean out the fridge and put a bunch of fruits and veggies together. We've been guilty in the past of not going through our produce quick enough and having to throw it away...not anymore!

For this juice, we used apples, oranges, spinach, ginger, carrots, lemon, and cucumber. It was tasty!

What are your favorite juice recipes? I'd love for you to share them in the comments or join my Facebook community group!

Know Your Nutrition Products | Choose Quality!

Hi there! How are you? Today I want to give you some helpful information about choosing your nutrition products.  

What would you think if you found out the nutrition products you were taking weren't what they appeared to be? 

When it comes to nutrition, our common sense tells us to listen to qualified health care professionals, but many of them don't know the right questions to ask when it comes to learning about quality nutrition products. 

The next time you're looking for nutrition products, keep these 10 things in mind...your health may depend on it!

  1. Who manufactures the product?The company who sells a particular product may not manufacture them.  They may only “distribute” the products.  The best nutrition products on the market will be manufactured and distributed by the same company.  
  2. Does the nutrition product undergo quality control tests on their ingredients? Every batch of nutritional products should have their raw ingredients analyzed for potency and quality.  The best nutrition products will have as many as 300 quality control tests on each one of their nutritional products.
  3. Does the nutrition product have independent labs verify their quality with results made available to the public?The products of nutrition manufacturers should be made available to independent labs to verify their quality.  One area that should be verified is the stated amount of a particular ingredient that is listed on a product label with the actual amount that is contained in the pill.  You’d be surprised at the number of nutrition products on the market that don’t even contain the stated amount of ingredients listed on their labels.
  4. Are the nutrition products you use made from natural or synthetic ingredients?Not all nutritional products can be 100% natural; an example would be B vitamins.  No B vitamins can be 100% natural, anyone claiming so is misinformed.  All high quality nutritional products will contain as many natural ingredients as possible.
  5. Do the nutrition products pass the “water test”?The water test is used to ensure nutrition products absorbability.  Many nutrition products on the market have so many artificial binders, fillers and colorings that when consumed, the digestive system cannot break down the pill so that the body can absorb the nutrients.The Water Test: Take a sample pill from your nutrition product and place it in a glass of water. Your pill should completely dissolve into a pile of powder within 20 minutes.  If it takes longer, there is a very high probability that your body will not be able to break the product down and absorb it into the bloodstream.
  6. Does the manufacturer of your nutritional product have a legitimate scientific advisory board?A high quality nutrition company will have an advisory board consisting of world-renowned physicians and scientists. Many less reputable nutrition manufacturers will pepper their “advisory boards” with people who do not have accredited advanced degrees in biochemistry or nutrition and are not authorities in the nutritional field.
  7. How many full-time qualified scientists does the nutrition manufacturer employ?A high quality nutrition manufacturer will have many scientists on staff with accredited graduate level degrees of a Masters or higher in an allied field of nutrition.
  8. Does the nutrition manufacturer have at least one legitimate research facility?A high quality nutrition manufacturer will have separate buildings dedicated specifically to research.  The more reputable manufacturers will have them located at prestigious medical schools.
  9. Does the nutrition manufacturer commission clinical studies on their nutritional products?A high quality nutrition manufacturer will commission clinical studies on their nutritional products at prestigious institutions such as: Harvard, Tufts University, Johns Hopkins, Yale, UCLA, Stanford University or University of California Berkeley. These clinical studies should be performed by outside institutions so that all results and design methods will be unbiased.
  10. Does the manufacturer publish their clinical findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals?Not only will high quality nutrition manufacturers commission clinical studies on their nutritional products, they will also publish their clinical findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
(Thank you to Dr. Steven Chaney for this helpful information)

By the way, my family uses and recommends Shaklee nutritional products to everyone! Shaklee MEETS or EXCEEDS each one of the points listed above!

Birthday Celebration | Yummy Chocolate Cake Recipe!

My sweet husband turned the big 4-0 yesterday and the boys and I celebrated him in a big way! Way back in the day, he was really into rock and he was in a band that played gigs around the Austin area. Then he grew up, went to college, sold his beloved electric guitar, got married, and started a family. For the past few years he's made comments about how he'd love another electric guitar. I thought his 40th would be a great time to get his rock and roll dreams started again!

So I surprised him with an empty Fender case with a note inside saying, "This case is missing something! Head on over to the guitar shop and pick out your new guitar!"

To say he was surprised was an understatement! On top of the guitar, I got him a fun variety of beer from World Market, some yummy soft licorice sticks, and made the most amazing chocolate cake ever!

Here's our table set up!

It was so much fun celebrating my guy!

Here's the recipe for the chocolate cake. Is it healthy? Nope. But it's homemade and doesn't have food dyes or unnecessary preservatives or artificial flavors! That counts towards our clean eating, right? :)

Best Chocolate Cake Recipe! (Fabulessly Frugal)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans (I just made mine in 9x13 baking pan and increased bake time to 42 minutes)
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer.
Stir in the boiling water by hand (make sure you mix it in well... the batter will look runny, but have faith... it'll turn out!)
Pour evenly into the greased pan(s).
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (For the 9x13 cake pan I baked it for about 42 minutes... do the toothpick test, it should come out fairly clean).
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely. 
Let me know if you try it!
