Bright Spring Salad Recipe with Pecorino

A lovely spring salad is one of my favorite things to have for lunch come springtime. I find that my energy levels are much higher when my fruit and veg intake is higher during the day. This Bright Spring Salad with Pecorino is exceptional with it’s bright flavors and depth of taste.

My husband and I came up with this spring salad recipe together when scouring the fridge for lunch options one day. It’s become a new household favorite. The red onions really add a nice depth of flavor. This spring salad with pecorino is simply delightful! Make it for 1, make it for 10…it’s delicious! The addition of the hemp seeds and the Pecorino as well as the olive oil make this a satisfying meal.

Bright Spring Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic herb salad mix (mixed red and green lettuce varieties with herbs…any kind will do)
  • 1/2 cup organic mixed baby kale
  • 1/2 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped red onion (depending on preference)
  • 1/3 orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1tbsp fresh squeezed organic lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil (my current go-to for salads is the unfiltered Tunisian one from Trader Joes. This is my all-time favorite olive oil when I can find it nearby.)
  • himalayan sea salt, sprinkled liberally to taste
  • freshly ground pepper
  • grated Pecorino-Romano cheese (to taste)

The quantities for the spring salad above are for one person. It can easily be multiplied for more people. Another good tip? Keep your Pecorino in the freezer. Since Pecorino is a cheese with big impact in small quantities, you usually don’t need much. Keeping it in the freezer preserves it so you always have it on hand when you need it.

Easy Non Toxic Sink Cleaner {Green Household Cleaners}

When we moved into our new house, I just had to come up with a homemade recipe for a non toxic sink cleaner. Our sink was downright disgusting…as in “never been cleaned” gross! Naturally, I had to do something about it without busting out the old toxic cleaners. So I came up with this super easy recipe for a non toxic sink cleaner. It can also be used for bathtubs or other areas that need deep scouring.

The best part about this green sink cleaner is that it’s made from items you probably already have on hand and it takes less than a minute to whip up a batch. It’s that easy!

Non Toxic Sink Cleaner Recipe

  • ¼ cup baking soda (I use this one for everything)
  • ¼ cup fine salt (bigger salt crystals do not work as well)
  • Ÿ1 tbsp vinegar
  • Ÿ6 drops high quality lemon essential oil (should be therapeutic grade for purity)
  • Ÿ1 tsp-1tbsp water (if needed)
  • small glass or ceramic ramekin or bowl – MUST be glass or ceramic! (These glass ramekins are awesome because they are cheap and they have lids, so you can save your mixture for later in the day by adding the lid.)

You can see how gross our sink was in the picture! The right side is pre-cleaning. See how disgusting it was? SO yucky!! Check out the left side after cleaning with this non toxic sink scrub…BIG difference, right?

Here’s the before (right) and after pictures of my sink (left)

Non Toxic Sink Scrub Instructions

  1. Mix dry soda and salt first in the ramekin.
  2. Then add vinegar…it will fizz.
  3. Next add the lemon oil and the water, if needed. The key is to get the mixture lightly grainy, but not runny. So if you need water, add a few drops at a time.
  4. Apply to desired area and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Scrub, scrub, scrub!
  5. For very severe stains, you may need to repeat the process as you would with any conventional sink cleaner.

non toxic sink cleaner recipe

Here you can see the mixture in the glass ramekin before I added a few drops of water. This consistency is too grainy and won’t spread well.

This is the desired consistency of the non toxic sink cleaner…see how it’s not runny, but it is no longer a coarse grain? You don’t want it too watery or it won’t be as potent.

One caution with the plastic ramekin lids. Since this mixture has lemon oil in it, make sure if you store if for a day or two that the sink cleaner does not touch the plastic lid as essential oils are potent and break down chemicals in the plastic.

Try it and let me know what you think! Have your own amazing non toxic sink cleaner recipe? Leave us your tips in the comment section?

Almond Coconut Pancakes Recipe

I took my very favorite pancakes and re-invented it into this delicious healthy almond coconut pancakes recipe. The results are scrumptious!

These are a great way to sneak nutritious ingredients into breakfast for picky kiddos. I now make the dry portion in bulk for my own super fast homemade baking mix for mornings when we are in a rush.

almond coconut pancakes recipe

Ingredients for Almond Coconut Pancakes 

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp organic champagne or white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup organic spelt flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ground almond meal
  • 2 tbsp organic cane juice
  • 1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan pink sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • coconut oil for the pan
  • oats – optional, for thickening
  • toasted coconut – optional, for sprinkling

 Almond Coconut Pancakes Recipe Instructions

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. Whisk egg and melted coconut oil into “soured” milk with a fork. (TIP: if you whisk the egg and warm coconut oil together first and then slowly whisk in the soured milk, the coconut oil will not clump and your liquid mixture will be smooth.)
  4. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with coconut oil. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet. Sprinkle oats on top of the batter side of the pancake for extra thick and fluffy pancakes. (This REALLY works! It’s kind of amazing!)
  6. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
  7. Serve with organic maple syrup or with plain yogurt and fresh berries. Or both if it suits your fancy. Sprinkle toasted coconut on the top. Yum! :)

I learned the trick of adding dry oats to the bottom of pancakes from my great aunt when I was a kid. It never fails to make your pancakes EXTRA fluffy!

 

Glu6 Eco Friendly Glue {Eco-Product Review}

When Glu6 contacted me about the possibility of doing a product review for their eco friendly glue, I was really excited. I’ve been searching for a glue alternative for a while without much luck. I was able to test 2 different Glu6 products, the paste and the gel.

This review actually took me a lot longer than one of my normal eco product reviews. I wanted to really give Glu6 a good round of testing on a variety of different surfaces and see how it held up over time. Since I don’t normally go through my week happily glueing things, it took some time to find things that I needed to fix or create using glue.

Eco Friendly Glue…Made From 100% Recycled Styrofoam

In case you’re wondering (I was!), the “6″ in their product name comes from the recycling number for styrofoam…6. The founders of Glu6 left corporate America to pursue their dream of pursuing a business that would make a positive impact on the environment and thus, Glu6 was born. Glu6 is made from 100% recycled styrofoam sourced from businesses in the San Francisco Bay area.

Glu6 does not add unsustainable or toxic ingredients to make their products. They are 3rd party certified as a non-toxic glue.

DID YOU KNOW?

Each year Americans throw away 25 billion (yes, BILLION) styrofoam cups…the equivalent to 15 Empire State Buildings! And each one of those styrofoam cups will still be in the landfill 500 years from now.

Eco Friendly Glue Paste

I tested the paste out quite a lot. To give a comparison, I would say it’s probably similar in texture to something like rubber cement. Although I’m fairly certain that it won’t roll up into a ball if you paste it on your hands…(like we all did as kids), so don’t try that at home! ;)

  • The eco friendly paste is meant to be used on porous or semi-porous materials. It worked great on an old canvas wrapped frame that I needed to repair. It didn’t work as well on some bows I made for my kids. Those held ok, but needed to be re-glued occasionally. In short, I wouldn’t use the paste for anything fabric related again. I think this is partially b/c I was using the porous glue, but my bows needed to be glued onto non-porous clips. So that was the part that came undone after a period of time. Also, on the super thin fabric bows, the glue was just too much for it and seeped through. I don’t think this is the fault of the glue though, I think I just needed fabric glue or hot glue for that project…but I wanted to test it out anyway. In short…I’m not sure what to do for projects where you want a non-toxic adhesive and need to glue a porous object to a non-porous object. Maybe Glu6 has a plan for this scenario in the works? Hope so!
  • There’s a cure time of 24 hours for any project. I found this to be essential. The times that I tried to use something I had glued earlier than the recommended cure time, were not as successful. I noticed a big difference when I actually left my repairs/crafts alone for the full 24 hours before using. So read the directions and follow them! I tried it both ways for testing purposes.
  • Smells awesome! Not that you’d want to be a glue-sniffer, but if you did you’d probably pick Glu6 as your glue of choice. Seriously though, it’s got a nice orange citrus smell that doesn’t stink up your house. Nice change from the toxic glue smells we are used to!
  • One small wooden spreader was included with my jar of the paste. Rather than buy more, I repurposed some old chopsticks that I wasn’t using as alternate spreaders and it was especially useful for glue small areas. Glu6 has now added a brush applicator as an update to the jar that I tested.

Eco Friendly Glue Gel

I also had the chance to review the Glu6 Gel. The product line has since expanded into more specific gels for specific projects. The multi-purpose one that I reviewed is no longer for sale on the website and I noticed that they now have 3 different eco friendly glue gel options, one for tile and ceramics, one for gem and rhinestones and a third one for glass and ceramics. They’ve also recently added a recycled school glue to their product line.

I tested the gel on rhinestones for a craft project and it worked great on those. I also used it to make a snow globe project with my kids. For our snow globe, we needed to glue plastic legos to a glass jar, which we then filled with glitter and water and then glued the lid shut. The glue dried clear (which was nice for the bits I messed up on), and it worked great for our snow globe. It lasted for months with lots of shaking and the water never leaked.

I was also able to test the gel on several other non-porous small repair items and experienced no issues or problems with the integrity of this non-toxic glue.

The Verdict on Glu6 Eco Friendly Adhesive?

After a few months of testing Glu6, I am pleased with the results. When my current bottles run out, I‘ll definitely be purchasing more to keep on hand. This will be my new go-to and I’m really happy to have an eco friendly adhesive alternative.

My other take away is this…As with any glue, you know that you can’t use one glue for everything. Don’t expect a single bottle of Glu6 to be your one stop shop for adhesives. Use it for what it’s meant to be used for and it makes a solid replacement for your conventional toxic glues.

*Disclaimer: As with all of my reviews where I’m asked by another company to review a product, I only agree to do reviews if the company in question is amenable to my completely candid and honest review of their product. I will also only do product reviews that are in alignment with what this blog is all about. If I don’t think a review will help my readers, I won’t do it. The opinions in this post are my own and I was not paid by Glu6 for this post, although I was provided the two samples of eco friendly glue to review.

 

SPOONK Organic Hemp Acupressure Mat {Eco-Product Review}

My own husband thought I was plain crazy when I bought this organic hemp acupressure mat. He thought my green/eco-friendly/non-GMO/organic loving self had finally gone off the deep end. The Spoonk organic acupressure mat is one of my all time favorite things. It took me several months to convince my husband to try it out, but after watching how much I loved using it every day and how relaxed I felt, he finally gave in. Now we both enjoy unwinding together at the end of the day by laying on the acupressure mat.

Why I Love My Organic Hemp Acupressure Mat?

So many reasons! For starters, it’s made with “clean materials”, such as 100% organic hemp and cotton and an eco-friendly plant-based foam. I don’t worry about relaxing on a sea of toxic chemicals while I try my best to unwind and de-stress.

The Spoonk organic hemp acupressure mat is supposed to relieve tension and stress, help you sleep better, improve circulation and boost your energy, among other things. Although I have a hard time measuring my increased circulation, I have definitely seen an improvement of the other benefits by using my organic acupressure mat.

Probably the biggest benefit I’ve seen is in the area of decreasing muscle tension and pain relief. I’m prone to carrying all my tension in my neck and shoulders and I often get painful tension headaches. My organic hemp acupressure mat is my go-to solution whenever possible as a first line of defense. After about 30 minutes of lying on my mat, my headache is usually gone and I’m in a much higher state of relaxation.

I’ve also notices that I sleep much better on the nights that I use my mat before bed. Plus, it’s just peaceful and relaxing to use!


It’s a rare day that I leave my organic hemp acupressure mat at home when leaving town. I recommend it to everyone I meet. We actually own, not one, but two Spoonk organic hemp acupressure mats if that tells you anything. My husband just had to have his own after falling in love with mine.

The Spoonk organic hemp acupressure mats come in a variety of colors and you can find them with a carrying case for ease of portability. A must for traveling!

The Downsides to the Spoonk Organic Hemp Acupressure Mat 

No review is complete without discussing the negative aspects of a product. As you can probably tell by most of this review, I don’t have many to report.

The price is a little steep, especially if you’ve never tried it and don’t see this as a “must have” item. They occasionally go on sale on random websites, but generally the price on Amazon is the lowest I see. I wish the cost was cheaper, but for the benefits that it gives you – pretty much the same benefits of getting a massage – I think the price is worth it. It’s hard to find a great massage for under $60, so I look at it as the poor mans massager…I can use this everyday and enjoy many of the same important health benefits as an expensive Swedish massage, which unfortunately I can NOT do every day.

I also will say that there is a bit of an adjustment required to use this mat. You have to get used to a bunch of little tiny poky things sticking into you. It’s a little weird the first time…and the second…but you soon get used to it. I started with a few minutes the first day and kept increasing my time on the mat once I got used to the new sensation. It really is very relaxing…promise!

Chocolate Coconut Maca Muffins {Healthy Muffin Recipe}

These Chocolate Coconut Maca Muffins are a great healthy muffin recipe for kids to have on hand for busy school mornings. They are also a fun healthy snack option when you’re in a pinch….best of all your kids (or husband who eats like a kid) won’t be able to tell that they’re good for you!

You can feel good about the healthy fat from coconut oil and the low amount of added sugar, with only 1/4 cup of cane juice for the entire recipe. They are not officially gluten free because of the spelt, since spelt is a distant cousin of wheat, but for those without serious gluten sensitivities, they are a great alternative to a traditional muffin.

These chocolate maca muffins also double and freeze well. I like to keep a stash of healthy homemade muffins on hand in my freezer for those mornings when I hit the snooze button one too many times. Or just for any morning. Or afternoon. Because they’re yummy. :)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cane juice
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 and 1/4 c organic unsweetened applesauce, room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup filtered water, room temp
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 1 cup organic spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup organic ground flax / flax meal – (can also sub chia seeds for an energy boost and a slight crunch to the muffins)
  • 2 tbsp organic raw maca powder
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan pink sea salt
  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened coconut
  • Optional: for an extra yummy variation, add 1/3 cup chocolate chips to the maca muffin batter.

.
Directions for Chocolate Coconut Maca Muffins:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line muffin pan with parchment paper liners.
  2. Cream together oil and cane juice using mixer. Keep mixer on while adding the following in order: banana, applesauce, vanilla, and filtered water. Mixture will get creamy and smoother/frothier.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, while keeping the mixer on until both eggs are mixed in. (Note: If your eggs, water and applesauce aren’t at room temp, the mixture will be lumpy instead of creamy. The end result will be the same, but it won’t look the same along the way.)
  4. In a separate bowl add all the dry ingredients, except the shredded coconut, and mix with a fork to combine.
  5. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix gently by hand until fully combined, being careful not to over mix. The texture will appear mousse-like.
  6. Gently fold in the shredded coconut (and chocolate chips, if using).
  7. Spoon batter into the muffin pan. I find an ice cream scoop will yield quick and clean results when spooning batter.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Test for doneness by inserting a fork. Maca muffins should be moist.
  9. Makes 12 healthy maca muffins.

#10 – Coconut Oil Health Supplement {10 Easy Ways to Use Coconut Oil}

You may not believe this, but a coconut oil health supplement is a powerhouse of nutrition! The benefits of coconut oil are so plentiful that it’s worth incorporating this wonderful nutrition boost into your diet.

Benefits of A Coconut Oil Health Supplement

Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid and provides your body with the healthy and beneficial kind of fat that you need. This kind of fat turns to energy quickly and doesn’t settle in your body as stored fat. A coconut oil health supplement helps aid the body with important functions such as digestion, weight loss, and also helps to really beef up the immune system. The lauric acid found in coconut oil helps to increase the body’s immunity agains viral and bacterial infections. It also helps fight damage from free radicals and gives you a natural energy boost.

How To Use a Coconut Oil Health Supplement

The great news is, taking a coconut oil health supplement is super easy on your wallet and on your palette! A jar of high quality cold-pressed, extra virgin coconut oil should run you between $6-10. There are several ways to add a coconut oil health supplement to your diet. The first is to buy pills filled with coconut oil. If you go this route, make sure to get one that is pure and unadulterated, with no fillers. I will say, however, that it’s cheaper to make your own at home with empty gelatin capsules, such as this GMO-free brand.

Another quick and convenient option is to just take about 1tsp-1tbsp per day by spoon. I do this with my kids and they love it! If you can handle this, you can also add 1 tbsp chia seed to the coconut oil for all day long energy.

However, if a spoonful of coconut oil just isn’t your cup of tea (or oil) ;) , then you can drizzle it over salads, quiches, spread it on toast or sandwich bread, or melt it in a bowl of soup. Or my personal favorite…a teaspoon in your morning coffee. You’d be amazed at how good this tastes considering the fact that it sounds abhorrent! It’s actually quite delicious and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how good it tastes and by the bump in energy you experience on days that you ingest it early in the day.

Learn More about Coconut Oil Health Supplements

If you’re fascinated, as I am, about all of the many benefits of coconut oil as a health supplement, then I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this terrific book, “The Coconut Oil Miracle“, by  Bruce Fife. I’ll be reviewing it in detail on here at a later date, but it’s worth owning a copy. The health benefits I’ve highlighted in this blog post are merely the tip of the iceberg on reasons why a coconut oil health supplement is so beneficial.

#9 – Coconut Oil Hair Treatment {10 Easy Ways to Use Coconut Oil}

If you’re looking for an inexpensive and easy way to deep condition your hair, coconut oil hair treatment is the perfect choice! Coconut oil moisturizes and protects hair from sun damage and helps replenish and re-moisturize.

How to Use Coconut Oil As A Hair Treatment

The easiest way to use coconut oil as hair conditioner is to try to remember to apply it anytime you’re going to sweat and will need a shower later anyway. Going for a walk or jog? Gardening, mowing your lawn or just working around your house? Slather your hair with a coconut oil hair treatment and put it in a bun so it can really absorb and let the heat from your scalp work its magic.

Make sure you don’t put the coconut oil all the way up to your scalp, but leave about an inch of hair untreated so your hair doesn’t get too greasy and weighted down after the treatment.

Coconut oil hair treatment is also a perfect protector when you’re at the beach or swimming in a chlorinated pool. Just apply the coconut oil hair conditioner to hair about 15-30 minutes before getting in the water so it has time to soak in and really protect your hair.

coconut oil hair treatment

Add A Power Punch of Essential Oils to Your Coconut Oil Hair Treatment

You can also add high quality essential oils to your coconut oil for further hair treatment possibilities. Try lavender essential oil to prevent hair loss as well as stimulate new growth. Rosemary essential oil encourages new hair growth, inhibits graying, removes dandruff and can help a dry and flaky scalp. Adding tea tree (melaleuca) essential oil is known to increase the entire body’s immune system and also heal damaged hair.

Try rotating different essential oils each time you treat your hair with coconut oil hair treatment to see what gives you the luscious locks you’re craving.

#8: Coconut Oil Lip Balm {10 Easy Ways to Use Coconut Oil}

Coconut oil lip balm is not like ordinary lip balm. Since coconut oil is nourishing and healing for the skin, as well as a natural exfoliant, it has the ability to leave your lips soft and supple. And perhaps extra kissable with a tropical smelling twist? ;)

Remember…LESS is More When it Comes to Coconut Oil Lip Balm

We all tend to overcompensate when our lips are chapped. However, coconut oil lip balm doesn’t work by globbing on a thick layer to coat your lips like you might expect.  Since coconut oil has a melting point of 76° Fahrenheit, putting on more than you need will leave you with  messy coconut oil dripping down your chin…and no one wants to kiss you if you’re foaming at the mouth with coconut oil!

coconut oil lip balm

Here’s how coconut oil lip balm works best. Simply apply one very thin layer at a time. After it has absorbed a few minutes later, apply another very thin layer. For severely chapped lips coconut oil lip balm should be reapplied continuously throughout the day, always waiting until it is fully absorbed into the lips before applying a new layer. You’ll have to remember to be patient, especially at first, because you will not notice instant results if your lips are very chapped and peeling. Keep it up and within a day or two you should see some healing take place and the chapping should decrease. By the end of the first day, I usually notice a significant decrease in that chapped lips feeling.

Coconut Oil Lip Balm Recipe

  1. Start by using a very glass small lip balm container, such as this one. If you prefer your balm to be more solid, store it in a cool place. These glass roll on bottles would also work well if you plan to keep your coconut oil lip balm at a warmer temperature where the coconut oil will not solidify.
  2. Add 1 drop of your favorite essential oil. My favorites are tea tree, peppermint, palmarosa, or lavender. Remember that whenever you use essential oils, they should be pure, undiluted, therapeutic-grade from a reliable source.
  3. Add organic, food-grade coloring to desired color tint. I love these plant-based food colorings by Chocolate Craft. Alternately, you can use 100% pure, undiluted, organic cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, or beet juice.

#7 – Coconut Oil Lotion {10 Easy Ways to Use Coconut Oil}

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most effective, such as using coconut oil lotion for intense skin benefits. Did you know that coconut oil makes a really lovely stand in for regular lotion and in fact has WAY more benefits?

Benefits of Using Coconut Oil Lotion…There are SO many, but here are a few:

  • Antiviral – Yes! Coconut oil eliminates or inhibits growth of viruses
  • Exfoliates – Coconut oil is a natural exfoliant for your skin. It works by removing dead skin cells.
  • Moisturizes – Coconut oil moisturizes skin by absorbing deeply into the skin. It provides healing moisture, not just a superficial coating.
  • Anti-aging – Again, you read that correctly! Coconut oil DOES help with wrinkles due to its vitamin E content. I am here to tell you that I’ve noticed a difference in my 30-something self after using coconut oil lotion over the past couple years.
  • Baby soft skin – Using coconut oil lotion results in baby soft skin. It’s awesome!
  • Sunscreen – Coconut oil has an SPF of 4 naturally and makes a great light layer of sunscreen for short outings. I’ve used it on myself and my kids all summer. We’ve used it anytime we’ve been outside (even swimming) for less than an hour and a half and we’ve had fantastic results. No burns, gorgeous tans all around!
  • Healing – Coconut oil heals the skin and is known for its many restorative properties.
  • Babies – This is a great alternative to baby lotion after a baby’s bath time and massages easily into the skin.

Here are My Two Favorite Brands of Coconut Oil for Lotion

As when using coconut oil for anything, you want to find one that you’d be willing to eat. Extra-virgin and organic is the way to go when shopping for coconut oil. Here are my 2  faves:

     

Using Coconut Oil for Radiant Skin

This is a really fun tip! Spread a thin layer of coconut oil on your legs, arms, and chest in the summertime and you’ll notice a very subtle, but beautiful glow on your skin. Make sure to give it a little time to absorb into your skin…10 minutes should do the trick and you’ll soon have radiant, healthy looking skin.
