Paleo Kindergarten Lunches {Gluten-free, Grain-Free} — The First Day of School

firstdayofschoolheader

My oldest baby went to  Kindergarten this morning.

I am so incredibly grateful that God gifted me with this amazing, sweet baby boy.  As he is off to school today I can’t help but be grateful for every second with him, and at the same time grieve a bit over the times that I have been a failure as a mom.    I know, I can’t be a perfect mom.  I tell my children all the time that mommy needs forgiveness too.  But, sometimes during moments like these, it still hurts a little bit to know there are many times that I’ve spoken too harshly to my children and been a frustrated mom.  If only I could stuff some of those words and harsh tones back in my mouth.   [Read more...]

How I Beat a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) without Antibioitcs

UTI header

It was about 7 weeks ago that I got my very first urinary tract infection (UTI).

It was no fun at all.  It hit me about 10 pm at night, I couldn’t sleep because I felt like I had to pee, chronically, with no end in sight.  Ugh, it was awful.  Thankfully I didn’t have any pain associated with it.  I had no pressure around my bladder and no burning when I urinated initially, but I did have an uncomfortable feeling.  That evening I started drinking lots and lots of water,  popping vitamin C and garlic, which is a natural antibiotic. I rubbed Thieves essential oil over my bladder throughout the night.   Finally, about 4 hours later the urge to go potty went away and I was able to go to sleep. [Read more...]

I am sure you’ve heard the buzz about essential oils.  

If you haven’t heard the buzz then surely you have heard the murmurs.  It seems as though everyone is wanting to get their hands on essential oils these days.  Between Facebook and Pinterest I’m seeing dozens of essential oil posts each day.   Whenever I post a essential oil testimonial on my personal Facebook page many of my friends are always asking more questions about essential oils: how do I use them, what oils are good for what health struggles and where do I get them?   I also get lots of questions about essential oils from people who are rather new to natural or holistic health and may even be skeptical about essential oils, and want to know more about the science behind the oils.
