HAPPY EARTH DAY! FREE FRUGAL ALERT! FREE REUSABLE SHOPPING BAG AT TARGET STORES TODAY.


Hi, Happy Earth Day! Reduce-Reuse-Recycle. It's the chant of the day.  Please everyone take a moment today to think about what you can do to improve, not only your own health, but the health of our planet.  Remember, it's the only one we have.  (Body, and Planet;).

A lot of my blog is about reducing, reusing, and recycling for frugality, and eating and living healthy for your own health, but it would be hard to live your optimal health on an unhealthy planet.  We are seeing this already.  Thankfully there are many good people determined to improve, and clean up our Mother Earth.  Let's all vow to be a part of that movement everyday.

Since being frugal, and eco-conscious are synonymous, in that vein I wanted to let you know that Target stores are giving away a FREE reusable shopping bag in honor of Earth Day.  After you get it make sure you use it.  Every plastic shopping bag we don't use helps the environment in so many ways.

Quantities are limited so get there as early as you can.  No other purchased necessary. As an added incentive, there may be coupons in the bag.  They've been having this Earth Day giveaway for years now, and sometimes they include coupons, and sometimes they don't.

This free event is brought to you by The Autism Hope Alliance, a non-profit organization that has provided over $300,000 in special foods, supplements, books, cleaners, toys and other crucial supplies to families across America.

This online summit is too important not to make the time for it.  So at least check it out, and even if you feel you can't listen to all of the speakers, you can at least listen to a couple that are the most important to you. You can access the session via your computer, tablet, and smart phone.

This free event is for ANYONE looking to transform their health, and daily life by powerful principles, cutting edge science, and nutrition strategies. There will be numerous speakers, and it should be very interesting.  There will also be prize drawings for those attending the event live.  Such as Nutribullets, signed books from some of the speakers, and more.

You might not have a child diagnosed with autism, but you likely know someone who does. The more you learn the better you'll be able to support those with this challenge, meet your own needs, seek wellness, and vitality by taking responsibility for your own diet, other health choices, and support in your relationships, which can only lead to a brighter future for us all.

Here is the link. You have to register, so do it now, because the Summit starts on April 18, 2016, and ends on April 23, 2016.  You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain from this valuable knowledge.

EASTER EGGS DYED THE NATURAL HEALTHY WAY - SHUN THE ARTIFICIAL FOOD COLORS!


Hi, I thought this was worth re-posting with Easter upon us.  Beside using natural dyes, don't forget to buy healthy organic eggs from free ranged chickens.  If you can buy them from a local farmer, even better.

 A lot of people are going to be dyeing eggs this Easter, and so many will be using those awful food coloring dyes.  I stay away from all food coloring, and if you can color eggs that will look just as nice why not use natural dyes.

You can dye them all with just 4 things, beets, spinach, yellow onion skins, and blueberries (you can use frozen).  Actually you can do it with only a couple of items and mix them to create different colors, but to start out with, those are great. With the beets your color ranges from pink to red, with spinach it's a green, the onion skin will give you a nice yellow to orange color, and the blueberries will give you a pretty lavender to blue color.  These are the ones I've used, but there are many other choices.  Here are some I've heard of:

red - red cabbage, cranberry juice, red onion skins
blue - red cabbage, purple grape juice
yellow - lemon skin, orange skin, turmeric
orange - orange skin, chili powder, carrot tops

You can combine the colors for an interesting effect.  Play around with them, and see what you get.

I suggest you wash the eggs first in a vinegar or vinegar and water wash.  I used the heat method, and just put the raw eggs in a pot, use glass, with the dyeing ingredients, and about 1/4 cup of white vinegar to about 2 quarts of water.  Make sure you use a lot of the coloring ingredients if you want a rich color. You don't have to put the vinegar in but the dye won't hold as well and you might not get a very deep color.  I bring the eggs to a slow boil, so as not to crack them, and then simmered for about 15 minutes.

You can use a cold method as well.  Wash the eggs, hard boil them, and then let them cool.  Boil the dyeing ingredients, separately of course, unless you are combining colors.  Bring to a boil then simmer for about 30. Cool, and add about 1/4 cup white vinegar to about 2 quarts of color.  You can strain the dye through a coffee filter, and then dip the eggs in the dye, or leave the coloring ingredients in for a interesting effect.  Leave eggs in the dye until desired color is obtained.  You can leave them in for hours for a deep color as long as you refrigerate them.

Either way, you can combine colors for different shades.  One year I wrapped the eggs in the onion skins before boiling them, and got a pretty design on them, so you can try that also with any of the ingredients. You almost can't go wrong; experiment.  It's great for kids to be involved this way, and a great lesson for them, about how things used to be dyed using natural items, before we become a chemical society.

There are many other more detailed websites on how to do this, then I just explained. Just Google for them.  I just wanted to remind anyone who came across my blog, to do more things without chemicals, and to try and get people thinking about forgoing the chemicals in even the small things.

Happy Easter.

Good Health and Wealth,

Jeanne
