I have been reading about the grain, wheat, for a while now. There are stories all over the internet about it. Apparently agri-business has genetically modified the original wheat grain so much that our bodies almost don't even recognize it as food......and as a result, we do not get much nutrition from eating it.
To add insult to injury, consuming this new GMO wheat has also been found to be linked to a myriad of illnesses, such as dementia, heart disease, arthritis, cataracts, obesity, intestinal problems, irritable bowel syndrome, food intolerances and bloating.

I am always on the lookout for useful plants. One day I was in my garden in the back yard and I found a strange little plant with only three leaves that were thick and fuzzy. They were soft as velvet. Being curious, I looked it up on the internet and found it to be a plant called Wooly Lamb's Ear.
Lamb's Ear is a very versatile plant and it has many uses, both edible and medicinal:
I am not one to have a ton of apps on my phone. In fact, I had almost none until a few days ago when I heard about a recycling app that I thought would be useful. After I downloaded it, I started looking around the App Store, and I found four others that I thought would really help me in my resolve for my family to live a healthier and greener lifestyle. I wanted to share them with you. :)
Today I have a lovely surprise, a post from a friend of mine that is also a blogger, Marika Charalambous. She made some homemade deodorant over the weekend and decided to share with us how she did it.
Homemade Deodorant by Marika Charalambous
Yesterday while working in the yard I somehow manages to impale my finger on a big splinter of wood. After scaring my husband to death when I came in the house with blood all over my hand, I proceeded to the bathroom to clean and dress the wound. First I stuck the finger under running water, gently pushing around it to see if there were any wood splinters in the wound. When I didn't see any, I proceeded to pat it dry and then pour alcohol over it. (ouch!) Then I pulled out my jar of antiseptic salve and dabbed it on the wound. That is when I occurred to me that I should share my homemade salve recipe with you all. Unfortunately, my finger was too sore to do any typing yesterday. It is better today, but still a bit sore.
