These days, some of the most profitable drugs in America are prescription antacids — Nexium, Prilosec, and Zantac come immediately to mind. Yet do these actually treat heartburn? Or make it worse in the long run? One of my friends and fellow bloggers, Craig Fear of Fearless Eating, wrote a book exploring the cause of heartburn and offering a 30 day Real Food diet plan for saying goodbye to heartburn once and for all. It’s called the 30 Day Heartburn Solution. Craig is not only a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, but a generous spirit. So when I asked him if he’d provide you guys with a coupon for his e-book, he did!
Every so often, a book comes along that is so practical, you can’t help but immediately using its tips to make changes to your life. The new e-book Sustainability Starts at Home: How to Save Money While Saving the Planet by fellow VGN blogger Dawn Gifford is like that. Within moments of finishing the book, I walked around the house and easily implemented a handful of changes that will save me hundreds of dollars each year! I found this book so completely useful, that I decided right then and there that nothing would make me happier than making sure that each and every one of you could get your hands on a copy. So, I asked Dawn if she would give you guys a coupon to use to make the book super affordable, and she did! But first, my review!
One of the biggest ways to save time in your Real Food kitchen is to simply cook ahead. The idea is simple. On a day when you do have time, you prep veggies and put together dishes so that on the days you don’t have time, you can pull a quick meal out of your freezer. You can also batch cook, doubling and tripling recipes that you know freeze well so that you can eat some for dinner that night and put the rest in your freezer for later. Yet if you’ve ever been on any make ahead menu planning sites, there’s a dearth of tasty, grain-free recipes using fresh, seasonal, wholesome ingredients. You’re far more likely to find casseroles made with canned goods than you are a recipe for Citrus Red Onion Slaw with Grilled Chicken. I bet you can already tell why I was excited to get a copy of Make-Ahead Paleo: Healthy Gluten-, Grain- & Dairy-Free Recipes Ready When & Where You Are.
When asked, “why make your own non-toxic cleaning supplies?” many of us will have a handful of answers. It’s better for our household environment. It will reduce our body’s toxic load. It will save us money. It smells nice. In this week’s Weekend Book Love post, I’m giving you all a peak inside my friend Heather’s newest e-book, DIY Non-Toxic Cleaning Recipes. Heather blogs at Mommypotamus, and because she’s my friend (and you guys are awesome!), she’s also offering an exclusive 20% off discount to my readers when they buy her book!
