My secret to finding time to cook real food

I try to make as much food as I can from scratch. I am getting there in my journey to be a truly healthy eater. That means not just thinking I am eating healthy, it means actually eating real food and not a bunch of junk. Junk as in preservatives, words I can't pronounce, anything processed and chemicals.

Somethings I make are quite time consuming. Especially with two toddlers that need just about all of my attention all of the time.

My secret is doubling, tripling and quadrupling recipes. This saves lots of time and lots of dish washing. I only have to get my ingredients out once and put them away once.
My loaves of bread are not all the same size. I am not perfect and I don't have time to be, so please don't judge :)

Yay! One to eat and three to freeze for the next couple of weeks. Now I wont have to bake bread for a while.

The bread recipe I used in the pictures is from Heavenly Homemakers. Lately, I have been only using sourdough and I have been looking for the perfect recipe that everyone in my family enjoys.

Certified Organic Exfoliating Cleansing Bar- A Pure Miessence Giveaway!

Our skin is our biggest organ and I am very concerned about the chemicals in our everyday products.  I was so happy to discover Miessence Certified Organics. I am relieved that the products are safe and natural. One Group is a great direct sales, work from home, business opportunity. The company is organic and green. It has an outstanding compensation plan. All of the products and their ingredients are beneficial to your skin and body. The Rose Geranium Certified Exfoliating Cleansing Bar came in my Miessence Organic Lifestyle  Pack. It was the very first Miessence product that I fell in love. Well, I did hop in the shower as soon as I received my package. Everything is of superior quality, top of the line, certified organic and safe.

Cleansing Bar - Geranium
The Rose Geranium Certified Organic Exfoliating Cleansing Bar is invigorating and makes my skin feel fresh and new. The natural sisal bag exfoliates your skin leaving it soft and smooth. This extra virgin coconut cleansing bar is hand crafted from organic cold-pressed virgin coconut oil from the Pacific Islands and includes organically grown essential oils.
