Quick and Easy Lunch

Chicken Avocado

You will need:

1 can canned chicken in water (or canned tuna in water)

1 avocado

onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper

Pickles (optional)

First cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Scrap the meat into a small bowl and mash. Now add your onion, garlic, salt and pepper, mix well (I add some, taste, then add more until it tastes good). Next open and drain your chicken/tuna and add that to your avocado. Again mix well. Josh likes to add diced pickles to his as well. You decide what you like! This is so easy to make and really yummy!

Chicken No-Noodles Soup

Josh and I were both craving homemade chicken noodle soup last night. But of course we can’t have noodles so I made chicken noodle soup without the noodles. Josh isn’t normally one to finish the leftover broth in his bowl but he ate everything broth included. It was so delicious and really hit the spot! Continue reading

Homemade Toothpaste

Lately I have been doing a lot of reading on cost affordable body care items I can make at home. I am always trying to avoid chemically enhanced products, especially because Lyla’s skin is so sensitive. Recently I posted on our new discovery of shampoo and conditioner, I will update soon on how that is going. With Lyla I am currently just using water to wash her hair and on days where it seems especially dirt then I might use the baking soda mixture. One of my favorite discoveries is coconut oil which is so healing for both the inside and outside of your body. I have been using it for my facial lotion and it works great! Coconut oil can be expensive but you only have to use less than a teaspoon for the face. And I figure compared to what I spend on facial products ends up actually being less expensive, which is great! Currently Josh and I have been using Tom’s toothpaste one that rates especially low on damaging chemicals on skin deep. However, I have been working on getting Lyla to brush her teeth and she is always wanting to be a big girl and sees mommy and daddy using toothpaste. So, I obviously don’t want to give her “real” toothpaste because she may eat some, so I decided to make homemade out of edible products. Continue reading

Washing Hair or not?

So I think this will be my last post of the day! I was so behind with Lyla being sick and trying to get caught up with school work, that my blogging has suffered. I still have a few more recipes to post but those will have to wait for another day. Now I am sure you are all curious about my post title? Well, Josh and I have been doing some research on hair products or lack of rather, because we both suffer from dandruff. I hate using all the chemically enhanced body and hair products. And with following the paleo/primal lifestyle I have noticed that I really don’t ever get stinky anymore. So I have already reduce the amount of products I am using. But I hadn’t stopped using shampoo and conditioner. Well after doing research, we are going to switch to just using baking soda in place of shampoo and apple cider vinegar in place of conditioner. Everything I have read says to use 1 tablespoon to 1 cup of water. They also say to use the baking soda mix mainly on the scalp and the apple cider vinegar mainly on the ends of the hair (especially if your hair is normally greasy). These mixture proportions can be changed based on what works best for your hair. So this will be our first week trying it out and I will keep you posted on how it is working or not working! This is just another step in reducing the chemicals that enter our bodies! Stay tuned for more on this topic!
