10 Easy Steps to Turn Any Recipe into a Real Food Recipe I had an epiphany the other day. Ever since I started eating real food, I’ve stayed far away from where my meal inspiration used to come from (if not picked up straight from the freezer aisle) — recipes from magazines, websites, and TV shows with eye-rollingly-typical “healthy” fare. Ingredients like, “Bouillon cubes,” and “Heart-healthy canola oil,” and “Fat-free sour cream” Barf. Barf. Barf.
Four Homemade Cleaners This was easier than I thought it would be. One of Betsy’s goals for the year was to ditch some of our standard cleaners that we use around the house and make them! Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about this project mainly because I wasn’t sure that homemade cleaners would really get the job done. And my lovely wife is a bit of a neat freak so there’s no way she would use something that didn’t perform well. Clean and Green Happy Friday night yall!! We've had a whirlwind couple of weeks and couldn't be HAPPIER being back in our own home and routine. We had a great Fourth with family, then headed to the airport at 4am the next day on our way to JAMAICA!

These would also work well behind a toilet, under a sink, or anywhere that could use a little freshening.
Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization Several years ago, I started to question some of the ingredients in commercial toothpastes as well as the approach of modern dentistry in general. I view some modern dentistry practices as appropriate and beneficial. Consider, though, that the foundation of today’s dental philosophy is similar to the mainstream medical model in that it focuses on treatment and not prevention.
