Halloween is such a fun time of year for kids and adults alike. Costumes, decorations, candy, candy, and more candy. I haveso many fond memories of Trick or Treating when I was a kid, and honestly my favourite memory was at the end of the night, dumping out all of the candy that I had collected, and sorting them into categories.
My daughters class is nut-free, so we’re always looking for healthy and nut-free snacks. The Classic Glo Bar recipe from fellow Canadian Angela Liddon’s amazing vegan cookbook is a great alternative. It’s so much healthier than typical granola bars, packed with hemp, chia, oatmeal, seeds, and held together with a mix of brown rice syrup (has a lower glycemic index so you’ll avoid blood sugar spikes) and nut-free butter.
Who doesn’t like banana bread really? It’s the classic snack, great for on-the-go and terrific as a litter-less snack for school-aged kids. A lot of coffee shops often sell individually wrapped slices, but to me they’re often lacking flavour, or made with questionable ingredients, and way too much sugar for my palate.
Wow, I cannot believe it is September already! Why does the summer always fly by? My eldest requested a new lunch bag this week, and it got me thinking about the eco-friendly choices we make as a family when packing lunches for school.
While at the beach the other day (where we’ve been spending a lot of time lately – not complaining!) a good friend mentioned how she had been using our Bare Bum Balm on a rash that had developed on her older sons body after too much time in the pool.
When reading Aviva Domm’s article, “What’s a Mom to Do? Preventing Early Puberty and Hormone Problems In Our Daughters” I wasn’t surprised that the second BIGGEST contributor to early puberty in girls was exposure to environmental toxins.
Made with soothing and calming ingredients, Bare Bum Balm is used to heal and protect the delicate skin of a baby.
Today I was busy getting new labels written out and ordered, working out the design and text for our new Bare Bum Balm (which will be making it’s debut later this month), and generally doing some thinking on how to word things, different containers to consider, that sort of thing.
