I am constantly asked about what items I use in my home to stay on top of it all. Some are tools, others are products, and then lastly resources.
Tools and products
Cuisinart Food Processor This thing rules. I use it to make pesto, pizza dough, and to shred block cheese.
Vitamix Blender Besides green smoothies, I use this to grind flour!
Tortilla Press Corn tortillas are quick because of this tool.
Porcelain grease keeper This has been great for us, because it makes it so easy to re-use my bacon grease!
Lodge cast iron skillet Scrambles, pork chops, veggies, etc.
Dutch oven Soups, sauces, artichokes…
Slow Cooker Can you say whole chicken in the crock pot?
Apple peeler and slicer Apple sauce is SO much easier with this tool.
Breveille Juicer We call her “Juicy” and she lives on our counter.
Breville “smart oven” I actually do most of my cooking in this toaster oven.
Cleaning and personal care
I have mentioned in previous posts that several studies suggested eliminating chemicals from both environment and food to help with developmental delays. I use a line of green cleaning and personal care products that are free of chemicals and harmful additives. The cleaning line contains no chlorine bleach, no ammonia, and no safety caps are required! They are made of effective, naturally derived ingredients, without abrasives, and are pH-balanced. The products are better for the environment because they are super-concentrated, and significantly reduce plastic waste. The personal care products contain no parabens or formaldehyde.
They use only word of mouth advertising to bring awareness to their brand. Fill out the form below, and I can point you in their direction.
Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.
Unacceptable levels movie. You can rent for $5.99. Wonderful documentary about industry history, containing interviews with really great leaders and scientists. Covering topics like food, water, farming practices, cleaning and personal care products.
