    My garden is doing great this week, though I’ve been dealing with white flies and aphids on the tomatoes. I sprayed with organic insecticidal soap and planted lots of annuals with small flowers in the garden to attract beneficial insects. If anyone has other suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

    That Bacon Hashbrown Breakfast Wraps uses Tofu, “mushroom bacon,” and calls for storebought house seasoning, storebought white flour tortillas, and vegan cheese substitute. yuck. Why do these fake food vegans try to infiltrate your blog all the time?

    Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for hosting.
    I trying to survive in the Texas heat (105 the other day) so I wrote down some tips on how to stay cool in the heat. It is also important to avoid certain oils when going out in the sun so I wrote down which oils to avoid..I make my own facial toners using infused herbs and essential oils so I’m sharing a recipe from my network blog Living Well Moms.

    Happy Memorial Day!

    I shared my version of raw yogurt that requires no heating of the milk before culturing allowing all the enzymes and vitamins to remain undamaged.

    My post is about the lack of Real Food wisdom in mainstream media these days. Gosh I would really like to see more information out there!

    After learning about the harsh chemicals in sunscreen a year ago, I decided to protect myself and family naturally and not fear the sunshine as much. We try to be wise about how long we are in the sun, too much of any good thing is never good but we need our vitamin D! So I’m sharing foods that help protect your body while also helping it to best absorb the vitamin D from the sunshine.

    Hope everyone has a warm and beautiful sunny summer! Thanks for all the delicious recipes and advice Sarah!

    I’m sharing a recipe for summer squash lasagna that I created last night. My boys loved it and it’s a great way to sneak in some veggies AND use up some of the 10000’s of squash currently exploding in my garden :)

    I’m back Sarah! Thanks for hosting :)

    BTW, I “forgot” about your blog for a couple of months and then “rediscovered” it again, and I love love it. I can’t believe I lost it! It was probably because I didn’t “follow” you so it didn’t come up on my feeds. I came to your blog the other day through a fellow real foodie and was like “that was the blog I’ve been meaning to read and forgot where it was!” I hope you can kind of realize what I am saying? I definitely will never forget to stop by now :) Kudos :)

    Are you going to WAPF 2011?
