Light Shades of Green: 10 Tiny Changes You Can Make On Your Path To Green Living

June 18, 2014


Why "light shades of green"?  You hear it all the time, "go green".  Product packaging often promises "green" which is supposed to mean buy it, this is good.  Many times this is true, however, as we often see things listed "organic", "natural" and "heart healthy" when it's not necessarily so, the term "green" can be misused as well.  People often associate going green with spending big bucks and inconvenient changes.  

This series is about the small modifications, habit-changing if you will, that can lead to huge personal and planetary rewards.

10 Tiny Changes You Can Make:

  1. Make your own cleaning products.
  2. Use re-usable canvas bags for groceries.
  3. Compost food scraps {or feed what you can to chickens or other animals}.
  4. Always wash full loads of clothing.
  5. Insulate your water heater with a water heater blanket.
  6. Add plants to your home that are known to improve air quality.
  7. Hang your towel to dry after taking a shower.  Use it a few more times before washing it.
  8. Turn off the water while you're shaving.
  9. Use white vinegar in your softener section of the washing machine instead of dryer sheets.
  10. Leave grass clippings on the grass to help your lawn retain moisture and add nutrients back to the soil.

DELICIOUS Chicken Marinade For Juicy Chicken Every Time

April 17, 2018


Chicken breasts can be bland and dry if you aren't using a flavorful marinade or sauce.  That is what we experienced, until we began using this SUPER simple marinade.  I use this whenever I want the chicken to have just a bit more flavor or if it's going to be standing on it's own.  I use it on chicken when I make grilled chicken, grilled chicken subs, Quick & Easy Chicken Parm, chicken for...

Oven-Baked PERFECTLY Melt-In-Your-Mouth BBQ Pork Ribs

April 16, 2018


My husband is a big fan of BBQ. He loves meat that has that smoky flavor, is drenched in BBQ sauce, and features a savory rub. Here's the thing......I don't have a smoker, I have no idea how to use a smoker, and I have no desire to ever own a smoker.
