How to Preserve and Display Kids’ Art

Finding low-clutter toys is a great way to reduce the overwhelming stuff in the house. But any parent will tell you… one thing that can get out of control quickly (but I can’t just toss out) is children’s art. It’s beautiful and important — but it’s everywhere! Art that’s not displayed isn’t being enjoyed, so...

Refreshing Lemonade Recipe (With Probiotics)

Lemonade is the classic drink for a hot summer day, but the usual recipes are super sweetened and involve a lot of sugar! I love the flavor and effervescence of other fermented drinks, so why not probiotic lemonade? I looked it up to find it was a thing and decided to give it a...

Homemade Cooling Anti-Itch Spray

Oh summer… how I love thee. With an abundance of fresh veggies at the farmer’s market (not to mention fresh peaches for cobbler) and lots of fun activities to do as a family, summer is almost perfect… Except for the mosquitoes… or the occasional poison ivy… or an itchy peeling sunburn! Of course, homemade bug spray helps ward off most of...

How to Plan a Family “Staycation”

It can be hard to stay healthy on vacation when you’re bombarded by restaurants, food stands, and ice cream windows. But in my opinion, staycations are the best of both worlds.

Is Grilling Healthy? (+ Grilling Recipes)

I’m a fan of summer. The beach, the outdoors, more sunshine… not to mention backyard cookouts featuring our favorite mouth-watering BBQ on the grill. While I love a good barbecue (I am a Southern girl, after all), grilling recipes don’t always make for the healthiest meal. For one, most of us grill more meat than...

DIY Sandalwood Tanning Oil

I prefer to eat my sunscreen rather than slather it on my skin… I do occasionally use my homemade sunscreen if I’m going to be out in the sun for a long time without shade or layer, but in general, I prefer to get the free vitamin D from its original source via moderate sun exposure. When I’m going...

Fudgy Paleo Avocado Brownies

There’s nothing like a rich and delicious dessert that you also know is good for you! Since avocado is filled with healthy fats, it’s the perfect sneaky substitute for butter in these fudgy brownies. If you are skeptical about making brownies with avocado, don’t be. I promise, you won’t even be able to tell it’s in there!...

10 Refreshing Infused Water Recipes (With Fruit & Herbs!)

Fruit-infused waters are a wonderful and refreshing drink option for summer when the sun is out, the kids are bored, and the bugs are biting. TV commercials will try to convince you that only soda and processed drinks are thirst-quenching enough for summer. Of course, you probably already know better, but sometimes it is nice...

9 Lessons We Can Learn From Europe (Food, Wine & Sleep)

I recently had the chance to tag along with Dry Farm Wines when they visited Europe and I got to see some of the amazing family-owned vineyards where their wines are grown. One of my goals when we left for Europe was to figure out some of the reasons that many European countries routinely rank...
