A FUN Day!

PerformanceYesterday, I worked at a vendor fair, that was at a gymnastics competition at Hamline University.  My friend Pam and I had a Shaklee booth.  We sampled the Performance Maximum Endurance Sports Drink, which was a big hit!  Performance is similar to Gatorade without the Artificial Flavoring and all the sugar.  Performance helps to rehydrate fast during and after exercise and also has OptiCarb for Instant and Sustained Energy.  Performance is also great for kids who might be dehydrated when they are sick.  It has electrolytes in it just like Pedialyte however it doesn't have the artificial coloring and flavoring.  Yah something healthy and yummy you can make for your kids!  Performance comes in Lemon Lime or Orange flavors.  Check out my website for more info.  Remember there is FREE MEMBERSHIP the month of November with any $70 order.

Why I choose Shaklee!!

Shaklee.jpg image by bonniejane03About 5 months ago, I started using the Shaklee products.  I have been extremely impressed with the quality and effectiveness of their products.  I started with the Get Clean Starter Kit, which contains a variety of cleaning products and laundry products.  I have had amazing results with the laundry products, from grass stains to grease, I have been able to get it out of my families clothing!  I am also happy to say that I have been able to get all the toxic chemicals out of my home and replace them with nontoxic, high performance cleaners!  The quality of the cleaning products amazes me and I love them!  I would have to say my favorite product is the Basic H!  There is several different ways to use the Basic H, here are just a few:

Would you like a little BPA with that?

Environmental Working Group is one of my favorite sites to stay up-to-date on what is going on in our world when it comes to safety for our children.  One of their recent studies, done by researchers at EWG, found BPA on receipts from well-known companies including Walmart, Safeway, McDonald's, KFC, CVS, and Whole Foods. The advice the EWG gives to consumers is to not let infants and children touch receipts, and to wash hands after handling receipts.  I never would have thought that receipts could be bad for my health!  BPA can cause reproductive and behavioral problems, cancer, obesity, diabetes, asthma and heart disease.  To view entire article:

WARNING! There might not be any veggies left!

Another way I have had success in getting my children to eat vegetables is to give them dip!  I have tried a few different options.  The first is a take-off on Ranch Dip.

                                         1/2 cup cottage cheese
                                         1/2 cup light sour cream
                                         2 Tblsp milk
                                         2 Tblsp ranch seasoning
                                         Blend until smooth!

The second is the Seeds of Change Organic Salad Dressing in Greek Feta flavor.  My kids really like this!  It is great when you are in a hurry, and don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
