Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Organic Chicken

Posted By: Elena on March 23, 2010 in Conventional, Food Inc, Organic - Comments: 1 Comment »

What’s wrong with this picture? Why is the 2008 chicken so plump? How come chickens grow so much faster these days?

Well, the answer is an easy one. We now inject chickens with tons of hormones to plump them up quickly and antibiotics to fight disease and infections that occur as a result of their deplorable living conditions. Journalist Michael Pollan, a food expert featured in the movie Food, Inc. says the chicken has been “re-engineered through breeding and diet to produce the breast meat consumers want. Compared to 50 years ago, chickens are now raised and slaughtered in half the time and grow twice as big.” The problem with that is that when people need to use those same antibiotics because we are sick, our bodies will be immune to them.

When I began purchasing organic chicken breasts I noticed 3 things that were very different from the conventional chicken breasts I was used to buying.

1. They are MUCH smaller.
2. They are VERY expensive.
3. They are soft and tender.

However, I also realized that we don’t need a 10 oz. chicken breast. A 5-6 oz. breast is big enough for a person to enjoy without overeating.

The price is steep now because the demand for organic chicken is still low. People look at price first and then realize they are better off with conventional chicken. Eventually, as more and more people realize the importance of organic food and their health, they will switch over. When people start to buy more organic food and less conventional, the prices will eventually drop as more companies will switch over as well to try and keep their businesses going.

Without the hormones that stiffen up the chicken breasts, the meat is so much softer. It actually tears when you hit it with the mallet/meat tenderizer. I like very thin chicken breasts. I used to pound away on conventional chicken breasts and it handled my beating without a problem. Now, I have to take it easy because the tender meat separates from the breast easily leaving me with tiny bite size pieces if I’m not careful.

I suggest you think twice about the antibiotics and hormones that you are putting into your body by buying conventional chicken instead of organic. Paying a little more now for healthy food will save you a lot of money on your health bills later. And more importantly than your health bills is your overall health. You only live once, so take good care of your body and feed it right.

YOU have a choice, as you aren’t a chicken:)

Free Coupons & Samples!!

Posted By: Elena on March 20, 2010 in All Natural, Coupons, Organic, Samples - Comments: 1 Comment »

Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about a bunch of organic and natural companies that would send you FREE coupons if you requested them? Well I’ve continued to email them and I have being receiving some wonderful coupons!

Today, I received 4 coupons from Apple & Eve for their organic juices. Two were valued at $0.50 each and the other two were for $1.00 each. My daughter loves their juice boxes, so I’m thrilled to have some new coupons for those.

I also received a bunch of coupons from Amy’s. Amy’s has an entire line of natural and organic foods ranging from burritos to enchilada’s to lasagna and cakes. I actually haven’t had any of their foods before, so I look forward to trying them. They sent a coupon book which contained five $0.75 coupons and one $0.50 coupon. They also sent me one $0.55, one $0.75 and one $1.00 coupon. That’s a total of 9 coupons just for asking! They were extremely generous with their coupons.

Last week I also received a couple $0.55 coupons from Arrowhead Mills. I have not tried them before either but look forward to their breads.

Clif sent me a sample of their “Clif Kid Organic Twisted Fruit”- strawberry flavor which Emma ate up within seconds of receiving:)

Mrs. Meyers was generous with 5 samples. 4 dish washing liquid soaps and 1 baby shampoo.

And last but not least, I received two $0.75 coupons from Rudi’s Organic Bakery.

Special thanks to Amy’s, Apple & Eve, Arrowhead Mills, Clif, Mrs. Meyers and Rudi’s Organic Bakery for these wonderful coupons!

Organic Manifesto by Maria Rodale

Posted By: Elena on March 17, 2010 in Organic - Comments: No Comments »

According to Maria Rodale, CEO & Chairman of Rodale Inc. there are 4 organic foods worth the extra money. Earlier this month she came out with a book called “Organic Manifesto: How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe.

Here is a list of the 4 foods that she feels you should buy organically.

Meat/Poultry:

Organic beef comes from livestock that eats an organic diet, and in June, new FDA regulations will mandate that they spend at least 30 percent of their lives grazing on pasture grasses. That’s important, because studies show grass-fed meat has 60% more omega-3s, 200% more vitamin E, and 2 to 3 times as much of a cancer-fighting fat called CLA that might even help you lose weight.

Likewise, organic chicken is healthier than non-organic chicken. One study found that it has 28 percent more omega-3 fatty acids.

Milk:

Studies show that organic milk has 50% more vitamin E, 75% more beta-carotene, and 70% more omega-3 fatty acids than regular. It also has more than double the amount of certain antioxidants that have been shown to keep your eyes healthy as you age.

Organic milk is also free of commonly used growth hormones, which increases infertility in cows and has been linked to prostate and breast cancers in humans.

It costs about a dollar more per half-gallon, but it’s worth it. Plus you can generally cut costs by getting coupons online. Stonyfieldfarm.com, for instance, offers printable coupons on their site.

Eggs:

Organic chickens, like cows, spend a portion of their life grazing. That means that, along with their organic feed, they have access to the chicken’s food of choice, which is a cocktail of worms and grubs. And when animals eat their favorite foods, humans benefit. According to a study from Penn State, eggs from grazing chickens have twice as much vitamin E, 40 percent more vitamin A, and 3 times as many omega-3s. Plus they taste better!

Compared to mass-produced conventional eggs, organic usually costs a couple extra bucks per carton. But again, that’s a small price for the health of your body and planet.

Fruits and Vegetables

“Dirty Dozen”

According to estimates by the Environmental Working Group — the agency that developed the “Dirty Dozen” list — you can reduce your pesticide exposure by 80 percent simply by choosing organic versions of these 12 fruits and vegetables: peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, kale, lettuce, imported grapes, carrots and pears.

As a general rule towards fruits and vegetables, when it comes to edible skins you’d be wise to choose organic.

“Clean 15”

These 15 fruits and vegetables were the lowest in pesticides, so it’s not as important to buy organic versions of them: onions, avocadoes, sweet corn, pineapples, mangoes, asparagus, sweet peas, kiwis, cabbage, eggplants, papayas, watermelon, broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes

Most of these fruits and vegetables are protected from pesticide contamination by thick skins.
