Some people call me a hippy…

Life seems to have become very busy lately.  I feel like i have neglected my blog a bit.  I find that it is therapeutic and so i am going to try to write at least once a week now.

Over the past 6 months, Seth and I have started to make little changes in our lives.

Some of our little changes:

At the first sign of a sore throat/cold we take Black Elderberry Extract.  This stuff is AMAZING!!!

We cut out Hydrogenated Oils and High Fructose Corn Syrup from our diet.

I use Olive or Coconut Oil for cooking now.

We purchased  a juicer, which means every Sunday morning i have fresh squeezed orange juice.

With our dehydrator,  i  have all the dehydrated fruit, fruit roll ups and jerky i want.

Another change came about after i read a blog called Girl on Bike. Here is a little about her, in her own words:

Hi, I’m Kendra. I live in Oakland, California on my own little urban homestead.  I ride my bike everywhere, cook from scratch, grow my own produce, make as much myself as possible, swap for things I need, and urban forage. I like to blog about these things as well.

The first post that i read was about  how she no longer shampoos her hair, i was definitely intrigued and had to read on.  I thought i could never use Baking Soda and Apple Cider Vinegar to wash my hair.  (I still haven’t tried it, i am so nervous)

Then I  saw her link for homemade deodorant.  I immediately went out and bought the supplies (coconut oil, corn starch, baking soda), but couldn’t bring myself to make it (again nervous).  I was afraid it wouldn’t work.  So i told myself I would make the homemade deodorant when I ran out of the store-bought kind. Well, that day was today!

I got out all my supplies and followed her directions.  It was very easy to make.  The true test will be when i use it tomorrow.   I will have to let you know how it goes…
