Free Online Conference About Healthy Eating and Lifestyles



I ran across this, and I think it's pretty awesome, so I thought I'd share it!

If you are into a whole foods kind of lifestyle as I am, you will probably enjoy this free web conference.


2013 Healthy Life Summit

 

What is it?

The Healthy Life Summit is a "FREE online virtual conference is happening March 24-30, 2013. Listen to 35 of your favorite health experts, authors, doctors, bloggers, farmers and activists from the comfort of your own couch!"  

Basically, 35 well-known folks in the healthy lifestyles arena will be interviewed about various health topics pertaining to their expertise.  For example, Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions (an excellent book that I highly recommend) will be discussing the best way to nourish babies and children, while Joel Salatin will be discussing the downfalls of todays industrialized agricultural system.


When is the Healthy Life Summit?

The healthy life summit happens March 24th through March 30th, 2013.  All you have to do is go to the Healthy Life Summit webpage and sign up, and you will get an email with all your login information.  Once you are registered, you will have access to that day's interviews.  If you are unable to listen on some days, you also have the option of purchasing the interviews for later listening.


Just thought I would pass along the info since this seems like a great resource!

Why Did My Chicken Lay That Strange Egg? {Decoding 10 Chicken Laying Issues}

What do you got?

A huge egg with two yolks in it?  A wrinkly misshapen egg?  An egg with a soft shell?  Or perhaps the all-inclusive just plain weird looking egg?

Whatever it is, I hope to help clear up some of the mystery behind:

Homemade Drain Cleaner

To avoid clogging and bad odors, sink and tub drains should be periodically cleaned.

A once a month cleaning with a non-toxic, homemade cleaner prevents needing a stronger, usually sodium hydroxide (lye) based, cleaner to remove clogs.  Sodium hydroxide is extremely caustic, and will damage the lungs if inhaled, burn skin and eyes, and can be fatal if swallowed.  In addition, the heat generated by using sodium hydroxide can soften PVC pipes, and damage old, corroded pipes.  It also changes the pH of water and can cause fish kills.

A much nicer alternative to this harsh chemical is the simple combination of baking soda and vinegar, followed with boiling water.  When baking soda and vinegar are combined, they foam and expand, cleaning the sides of your pipes and dissolving fatty acids.  The boiling water then washes it all away.  This method is a great way to use up the box of baking soda in your frig that is not longer doing a good job of deodorizing.

Ingredients:

1 Cup baking soda

It's Not Weird to Have a Tub of Leftover Soap Scraps {Recyled Soap Scrap Bars Recipe}

Are you looking for ways to save money?  Who isn't nowadays?

Every little thing you do helps and the small things really do add up.  Which is why I have a somewhat creepy tub of soap scraps in my bathroom.






I admit, it seems a little weird to save soap scraps, but it wasn't always this way.  In fact, they used to have little contraptions for saving your soap scraps.





But those days are gone.  Or are they?

I think frugality is making a comeback--at least, it is around here, because I save all our soap scraps.  What do I do with them?


Recycled Soap Scrap Bars

If you are regular users of bar soap, a family of four can easily manage to get six additional bars of soap per year by saving soap scraps.  It doesn't seem like much, so I'll write it this way instead:  in ten years, that would be 60 bars of "free" soap.  There, that seems more impressive.

Ingredients:
Soap scraps
Water
Herbs (optional)
