Viva Vitamin Angels and Whole Foods Gift Card...
As a mother I think aside from my love and my attention the number one priority I have is helping my children build strong healthy bodies through holistic nutrition, meaning a good balanced diets with lots of whole foods and clean water.

There are many factors that determine where and how people travel on vacations. Considerations often include budget, type of atmosphere (for example family friendly, high adventure, relaxing etc…), length of stay and distance to travel, to name a few. One consideration that often gets overlooked is environmental impact. Concern for the environment doesn’t have to be left on the doorstep...
Meatless Monday: Roasted Cauliflower
When I was a child I could not stand cauliflower. We never had fresh vegetables growing up ( the frozen and canned food revolution was firmly rooted in Americana Culture) and frozen cauliflower just didn’t do it for me. My obsession with cauliflower didn’t begin until one evening, at a fundraiser, when a beautiful roast organic cauliflower soup was served. I spent the next week trying...
We Will Never Forget
The Organic Blonde and my family wish to take a moment, in memory of those who lost their lives, and to honour the heroes who bravely served that morning and thousands of other mornings when peace was chosen over war.

Organic Humor: George Carlin on Consumerism
It’s “Silly Saturday” today and, since I am a HUGE George Carlin fan (I think everyone should be), I thought his humor and levity on consumerism would be something you would really enjoy. Consumerism is a huge problem both for your pocket book and the environment as more stuff (especially since everything is wrapped in plastic) means more waste, means more landfill space needed,...

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars
I love desserts! I can’t help it. I actually used to be one of those women who would order dessert based on what her partner was ordering so I could eat MORE! Once, on a dare, on a first (and last) date, I ordered dessert before my main course. In my quest to find healthy dessert alternatives, I still find myself addicted to chocolate. Deep, dark “swim in a river of it”...
