Homemade Rosemary Maple Corn Muffins
"These are naturally sweetened with maple syrup and studded with little flecks of rosemary. They’re vegan, but no one has to know that. Almond milk substitutes perfectly for milk, and a bit of apple cider vinegar helps them rise (without the egg). They’re a bit on the crumbly side, but come to think of it, good cornbread should be golden and crumbly…”

Pharrell Wants to Turn Ocean Trash Into Jeans
“Now we know one of the big ideas that musician-entrepreneur Pharrell Williams had under his enormous hat: Taking plastic trash from the ocean and turning it into jeans.
Pharrell recently announced plans to launch a new jeans collection with the denim label G-Star RAW. The collection, called G-Star RAW for the Oceans, will be created using fabric from Bionic Yarn. We’ve been sterilizing and melting down plastic bottles to make synthetic threads for years now but Bionic Yarn’s new thread will apparently originate with plastic waste pulled from the ocean. The details aren’t available yet, though. Hat tip Grist.”
I feel SUCH a difference in my body since using these products. The toothpaste was my first holistic switch. It’s so good that I forgot to brush my teeth twice last week because my breath was still fresh from the night before. Embarrassing, yes, but if I can’t tell that I didn’t brush my teeth until hours later… That’s some damn good toothpaste.
Second purchase was the soap. I read lots of reviews on this soap and at first I was skeptical on paying so much for it, but my grocery store had the smaller size in stock vs the largest size I found at Walgreens and I saved myself $10. I got tea tree oil scent because E and I have skin conditions that require extra attention (eczema) and I read that tea tree oil is good for healing up skin sores. The soap itself is organic, all natural, and fair trade. The bottle is post consumer recycled product as well. Extra points for Dr. Bronner.
Lastly, coconut oil. I have been wanting to jump on this bandwagon for a good year now and I finally broke down and bought some along with the soap. Holy fuck I smell amazing and my skin feels incredible. I am a little oily, but I think in the morning I’ll be fine. I don’t think I can moisturize more than once a day with it, but at night after a shower feels good so that’s what I’m going to go with.
I like getting fresh and clean with all natural ingredients. I don’t like harsh chemicals. Thank you heyfranhey for inspiring me to make the conversion to holistic health and beauty!
Ahh! This is beyond awesome!!! Thank you for sharing with us <3
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
