Fed up

I just watched this documentary, Fed Up, on Netflix.  It's a must-see movie.  Here's the trailer.

Here are just a few things I learned:  being obese isn't a matter of personal responsibility (watch movie to understand what I mean), sugar is more addictive than Cocaine, moneyed interests control the food we eat, 80% of the food in the market has added sugar, Sugar is the Tobacco of 90's, we are the only generation whose kids will live SHORTER life spans than us...‪#‎fedupmovie‬

Are you fed up?

All Natural Insect Repellent

I just finished watching Shark Tank (love that show!) and there was a company seeking funding for their all natural insect repellent.

This piqued my interest because I make my own all natural insect repellent with essential oils.  In fact, I said to my husband "They are probably using essential oils."

Sure enough, I checked their site and their main ingredient is Cedar oil (which is Cedarwood essential oil),   I also noticed their products sell for $39.99 and up and probably only last 6 months (depending on use).

Why not make your own?

The all natural insect repellent I make costs me less than $1.00!  (Not including the price of the spray bottle.  But once you buy one you can keep re-using it).

I use an Insect Repellent Blend which primarily contains Cedarwood and Citronella oil.  It also contains:   Ylang Ylang, Catnip, Lemon Eucalyptus, Litsea, Arborvitae, Nootka, and Vanilla Bean Absolute.

It smells wonderful!  How many repellents can you say that about?  It's all natural and non-toxic!

I basically add 10-20 drops (depending on bottle size) to a spray bottle and then fill it with distilled water.

One 15 ml bottle retails for $14.00 and wholesales for $10.50.  A 15 ml bottle contains 250 drops.  It is .04 cents a drop.    This bottle will last me over a year!  Probably two or three years.

It's cheaper to make your own!

TIPS for Using Insect Repellent Blend

-  Add distilled water to a 4 oz bottle, add 20 drops Insect Repellent Blend.
- Spray on legs, arms, clothes, tent, picnic tables or around house.  Safe for children.

- Safe to use on DOGS.  Put a drop on their collar.  Or spray bedding, fur (avoid eyes, mouth, ears, face)

-Excellent for GARDENING. Place 1-3 drops on a cotton ball and stick cotton ball in planter with herbs for all natural, non-toxic gardening.

Got Ants?

Did you know Peppermint essential oil deters ants?  Place a drop of peppermint oil on your finger and draw a line over the area where they are entering and they won't pass it...

Vegan Chocolate Shake - Yummy

I've been "trying" to eat healthy and stick to a plant-based diet.  (I say "trying" because I haven't stuck to it 100%, I'm human!)  And I do have a sweet tooth! 

One of my favorite things to make recently is a Chocolate Shake!  I love, love, love this!  It's like the bad Chocolate shakes I would get at Burgerville, but only healthier :)

And it's super easy to make.  I don't even really measure, I just throw things in my Vitamix.  But I'll give you an estimate of the ratios I use...the great thing is you can adjust it according to your taste!

I put about a CUP of Almond Milk in the Vitamix.  Then I add 1/2 to 1 frozen banana (depending on my mood).  Then I put in 1-3 TB of Cocoa powder, again depending on how "chocolate-y"
 I want it.  Then I add 2-3 TB of Maple Syrup (depending on how sweet I want it) and here's the clencher...I add a TB of peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter.  I'm salivating just thinking about it.  Then I mix it thoroughly, then add about 1/2 to 1 cup of ice, mix again and pour!

I love, love, love this.  Maybe you will too!  I think I'm going to go make one now!
