Pit Powder Giveaway

Review & Giveaway: Pit Powder {Muddy H2O}

Pit Powder Giveaway

I’ve been using Muddy H2O’s Pit Powder for 2 weeks now and I love it.  Not only is it effective, and that’s hard to find in a natural deodorant, but I find that the powder form helps absorb some of the sweat and has left me dry all day.  No more low high five’s and at the side waves.  Now I can raise my arms without fear of the embarrassing sweat marks.

Pit Powder is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant.  Your body is still allowed to sweat, ridding the body of toxins as it does so.  Sweating is actually a healthy and normal bodily function.  The clay and arrow root powder in Pit Powder absorb the moisture and are soothing to the sensitive skin that is under our arms. The baking soda, essential oils and herbs in Pit Powder help combat the bacteria leaving you odor free.

100% natural, there are no harmful chemicals in Pit Powder. I’ve found that one application gets me through the day when I’m at home most of the day.  When running errands or playing out with the kids I find that a second application in the afternoon keeps me fresh till bedtime.

My shaker after two weeks is still nearly full to the top.  A little goes a long way and I’m expecting my shaker of Pit Powder to last me 2-3 months. The folks at Muddy H2O are going to give one of you your very own shaker of 100% natural, handmade in the USA, Pit Powder!  Just enter below.

Pregnancy Smoothie (1)

Raw Pregnancy Smoothie

Pregnancy Smoothie (1)

This raw smoothie is a great substitute for that afternoon coffee.  And it’s full of superfoods for the pregnant or nursing mother.  I developed this smoothie specifically for one and combined some foods that I try to incorporate into my daily diet when pregnant or nursing.  Most of these foods are raw, providing more nutrition for you and baby.

Now in my 25th week of pregnancy this raw  smoothie fulfills that desire to grab a quick treat as I sit down to homeschool my older children.  And leaves me full until dinner.

Review & Giveaway: Making Vegetables Vol. 1

 

This post contains affiliate links, Thank You for supporting Simple Foody!Making Vegetables Giveaway

 

Like Shoshanna’s other book, Making Babies, Making Vegetables was passed around from child to adult in our home.  The pictures easily entice the non-reader, or young reader to learn more about radishes, peppers, or kale.  We’re big fans of heirloom seeds, and this book didn’t let us down.  The pages are filled with instructions on how to germinate those seeds, and care for the seedlings.  Organic growing practices and much more….my husband’s favorite and newest addiction, compost tea!  Someone tell him to get the 5 gallon bucket of compost tea out of my kitchen.

 

MVG

 

Are you new to gardening?  Are you a long time gardener?  This book is for you.  You’ll love the easy to read instructions on how to do it all if your new to planting, caring, and harvesting vegetables.  If you’ve been gardening for years, you’ll love the encouragement and reference you’ll get from Making Vegetables Vol. 1, and who knows, you may learn a thing or two.

8 Ways to Naturally Increase Your Vitamin D Intake

Vitamin D label

As we end winter and being spring, many may find ourselves with a low vitamin D count.  Vitamin D actually isn’t a vitamin at all, but rather a hormone.  And one our bodies need to function at their best.  Vitamin D helps the nervous system, bone health, deficiencies have been linked to high blood pressure and even cancer.

I recently found myself vitamin D deficient.  I was determined to increase my daily dose of vitamin D naturally as I’m always a little leery of synthetic vitamins.

Italian Dressing

Italian Dressing {large family style}

Italian Dressing

Crisp, cool salad graces our table often, and even more so in the spring and summer seasons.   I normally dress our salads with a bit of olive oil and lemon juice with a dash of salt and pepper.  It’s easy and everyone likes it.  Sometimes I find ourselves in a salad rut, then I like to spice things up with our favorite Italian dressing.

Not only is this dressing great for salads, but it’s great for marinating those chicken pieces to be thrown into the oven for dinner.  The oil creates a crispy chicken skin and the vinegar tenderizes the meat, while the herbs give bursts of flavor.

This is a great recipe for getting the kids to help in the kitchen and teaching basic skills like measuring and how to work a blender.

BAM (1)

You might have noticed the lack of menu planning posts on this site.  It seems that when things get busy, menu planning is always the first to go.  Then that brings stress, confusion, and lots of wasted money.  But no more.  Remember my review of Build A Menu a while back?  Well, I did it.  I took the plunge and subscribed for a full year!  And you should too.

Build A Menu founders Lisa and Karee are experienced mothers of many (11 children between them) and know just how an unplanned meal time can cause chaos for not only mom but for the whole family.  Build A Menu lets you choose a grocery store,  choose recipes you want to make that week,  then you print out your recipes and grocery list which even lets you know how much you’ll be spending at the store!!  Who doesn’t love that?

BAM

Thinking it wouldn’t work for you?  Think again.  Gluten-free, Trim Healthy Mama, vegetarian, or just need something quick and easy?  Build A Menu has you covered!

With every subscription your not only helping your sanity, family, and wallet but you’re also helping children in need as a portion of each subscription is given to children ministries.

Herbed Tilapia

Herbed Tilapia label

Fish is a super food and one we try to consume weekly if not more.  While we love oily fish like salmon, trout, and sardines, these fish tend to be more expensive than their white fish counterparts like tilapia and cod.

I serve tilapia and cod almost weekly for lunch and reserve other types of fish for dinner.  A small filet of tilapia or cod is filling when served with these herb roasted potatoes, and your favorite vegetable or salad.  Did I mention who quickly it cooks up as well?

Herbed fish (1)

This herb blend is a flavorful and robust go to and makes enough seasoning for about 6 small fillets.  Want to make more?  Just double or triple the recipe.
