Healthy Maple Cranberry and Pecan Energy Bites

These Maple Cranberry & Walnut Energy bites are perfect for fueling any activity. These bites offer the right amount of goodness to your day! I LOVE maple syrup.  I am SO excited that the maple season is finally here!!!  That means for as long as mother nature will allow over the next few weeks, I will be eyeballs-deep into making maple syrup.  Yesterday, we put in 31 taps into the trees on our property.  Within a few days, we should be boiling our first batch of syrup for the year.  There is A LOT of work involved in the process, so keeping my energy up is key! These Maple Cranberry and Pecan Energy Bites were so easy to make.  They fueled me while hauling 31 five- gallon buckets of sap around my yard! I used some of my homemade maple syrup left over from last year’s batch to add the PERFECT amount of natural sweetness to these bites.  These bites are also great for snacking as a healthy, sweet treat.   (more…)

DIY Natural All Season Moisturizer Sun Cream

This DIY Natural All Season Moisturizer Sun Cream keeps your skin soft & smooth and protectis your skin from the sun anytime of the year! So easy to make!Do you like spending time outdoors? Think the sun can damage your skin any season of the year? If answered yes to these questions, you have the right idea!   I am someone that spends a ton of time outdoors, all seasons of the year. Obviously, in the summer, more of my skin is exposed to the sun.  However, In winter, especially with snow cover, the effects of the sun on my skin could be more intense and more damaging.   I really mean to put sunscreen ALL of the time, but I’ll be honest-  I don’t!  This is partly because I refuse to put on the store-bought kind that is laden with synthetic-chemicals.  Also, I am sometimes lazy.  I know that is not safe and it bothers me quite a bit. I believe I solved my problem though….  (more…)

DIY Natural Static Reducer Spray

static reducer spray

Back in the 80’s, I remember using some of my Aqua Net hairspray to remove the static from pieces of clothing. It did the job, but HOW GROSS WAS THAT?!?!  Does that stuff even exist anymore?   Thankfully, there is another highly effective, natural, more healthy way of removing static and static cling from clothing.  You could go out and buy a really expensive, pocket-sized, commercial version filled with synthetic chemicals OR, you can spend pennies and less than 5 minutes to create your own. This DIY Natural Static Reducer Spray allows you to zap the static AWAY in seconds! It smells great too which is a bonus!  (more…)
