Produce Bath & Spray Recipe

Scrub a dub dub, put your veggies in the tub!

Vegetable and fruit bathes are a must, here’s why…

  1. Contamination risk, from preparation to storage time, there are opportunities for contaminants, especially bacteria, to live on your vegetables.
  2. Anyones hands can be on the loose produce you pick up, people test and touch, creating a breading ground for bacteria and germs.
  3. Produce can often be spilled on the floor of grocery stores, during unpacking or shipping, if produce isn’t ruined it will be put on the shelf, definitely without a wash. Ensure you wash items even in the plastic containers like berries, they could’ve easily been on the floor.
  4. Helps remove dirt, pesticides, and waxes. The more we get off, the less we put in our body.

What’s In My Pantry Series

 

What’s In My Pantry Series

How cute is that little display!? This was handmade for me at my surprise shower as a guessing game for my guests. My sister has a steady hand with a glue gun and a very creative mind. She probably didn’t know this project would come in handy down the road :)!  It’s the perfect prop for today’s post.

I wanted to let you in on a little secret… I am addicted to watching videos and reading posts on “What’s In My Pantry”. I absolutely love seeing what other health minded “seed eaters” keep on hand to stay on track. It’s always informative and I always step up my game a little more after watching or reading.
This inspired me to do my own! Sooooo, every Tuesday I am taking you inside my pantry to share with you my staple items from spices, baking ingredients, sauces/mixes, canned goods, snacks, to appliances and my pantry storage. If this is a hit and I get feedback to do more, I will do a What’s In My Fridge, What’s In My Makeup bag and What’s In My Purse & Gym Bag.
Let me know if this is something you would like to see in the comments below 🙂

PB Chop Chip Cookies {With a twist}

This twist is, they are made with CHICKPEAS!

Cookies that don’t leave you feeling guilty, is there any better kind?

**I have to say, I find it adorable that the font I used for the heading is Rum Raisin, perfect for for a cookie post.**


I was in the mood for peanut butter cookies, and since I don’t digest wheat very well, I wanted an alternative that was healthier and still tasted great. This recipe is packed full of protein {chickpeas are the plant based protein source} and is beneficial to prevent a spike in your blood sugar and helps maintain energy levels. Continue Reading
