    Hi Sarah! I’m late to the party, but I shared an article on why to avoid plastics, some doable tips and a primer on BPA.

    Sorry….I thought name meant my actual name but it was supposed to be a description of what I am linking to. DUH!

    Anyway, it’s all natural skin care products.

    As always, thank you for the opportunity to share and learn! This week I’m sharing a recipe for a grain-free pizza crust. It’s by far the best one I’ve tried! It’s made with cauliflower, but we couldn’t detect the taste at all and it held up to eating without utensils. ~ Karen

    Thanks for the opportunity to share! I love these nice tart honey lemon marshmallows that have no corn syrup in them. They are like a lemon bar/lemon meringue pie in marshmallow form. With a corn allergy in the house, I love being able to make homemade marshmallows for the rare treat. Honey is one of the options available to us. I haven’t tried these with something like coconut sugar, but I do use organic evaporated cane sugar for the little bit of sugar in the recipe.

    I’m sharing a recipe via my monthly pantry challenge. I need to get my freezer cleaned out before I start preserving this year’s harvest.

    I’m looking forward to reading the other recipes. I’m in a bit of a rut, and I need quick, healthy recipes for baseball season.

    I thought I would share our son’s 1st birthday party, with a local, organic, healthy theme with no artificial foods, no refined products and no processed foods. It is possible to throw a healthy party that is a hit! 😀

    Item #28, banana and oatmeal cake, links to a recipe that includes 2 cups of white flour and 1 cup of sugar. I’m a little surprised to find that in THIS location (although the cake sounds delicious!).

      Post #45 (84 calorie muffins – really??? Not 85 or 90 but 84??) has nonfat yogurt. Traditional food has never been and never will be about counting calories. Who does this anymore?

    Thanks for hosting! This time around I shared a post on the images and words describing food in children’s books. What I’ve found as a new parent is most children’s books are void of any healthy food references and are filled with pictures and stories featuring processed junk food. A frustrating issue when we’re trying to teach our children to eat healthy, real food!

    Sarah and anyone else out there; anyone know what to do with Havla? I don’t eat many sweet sugary things, but ended up with a container of this middle eastern product. It’s made from pistachios, honey, tahini and vanilla. Does one just eat it like that, or is it used in other ways? It’s rather sweet on it’s own.

    Hi Sarah! I am sharing my recipe for Italian Sausage Sauce On Zucchini Ribbons. It’s a great sauce that is served over sauteed ribbons of zucchini instead of pasta.
