DIY Dry Shampoo {for dark hair}

DIY DRY SHAMPOO.001

Click HERE to PIN this post! This DIY Dry Shampoo is one of my most used products. I’ve been using it multiple times a week for over a year now. Confession time! I hate – like, really hate washing my hair. It’s not the easiest to manage. If I don’t do anything to it after I wash it, I have a frizzy mess on my hands. And who has time to spend an hour blow drying and straightening? Not this mama! Luckily, since following many of Real Food Liz’s tips in her eBook, I wash my hair so much … [Continue Reading...]

PALEO SMOKED SALMON EGG BAKE

Salmon Egg Bake FB

Smoked Salmon Egg Bake is the perfect Paleo breakfast to keep you fueled and full all morning long. I love that this recipe makes a large batch, so you can make it on Sunday and enjoy it for several mornings throughout the week. I find that cooking once and eating 3 times is key to staying on track with a Paleo diet. When my friend Steph of Stupid Easy Paleo asked me to share a recipe from her brand new cookbook, The Performance Paleo Cookbook, I was thrilled! I am already a huge fan of her … [Continue Reading...]

Indyanna and I spent the morning doing some holiday cooking. We made these Spicy Roasted Pecans from Cassy Joy's Fed + Fit Holiday Feast eBook. These pecans offer the perfect balance of spicy, savory and a hint of sweetness. It was hard not to munch them all! I normally would have, but we are saving them for our holiday festivities. We've been loving Cassie's book this holiday season. We made her pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. It was gone so fast, I didn't even get a chance to snap a photo on … [Continue Reading...]

Branch Basics: All-Purpose Green Cleaner (that works!)

Branch Basics.001

You all know how much I love my DIY vinegar based all-purpose cleaner. I have been making it for close to 5 years and it's all we use to clean at our house. It works well and gets the job done. But, my husband is ALWAYS complaining about the scent. Some people can actually be sensitive to vinegar, especially those with asthma or bronchitis. As I have mentioned before, vinegar is often derived from GMO-corn, so we have to be careful to source a GMO-free product. Husband was thrilled when we … [Continue Reading...]
