Shrimp Egg Roll Bowls

I'm going to keep things simple today:  If you like egg rolls, but feel bad about yourself after eating a dozen of them, you're going to love this.

It's got all of the deliciousness found on the inside of an egg roll, but pan-fried in healthy fat & eaten straight out of the bowl.  Because, who needs soy sauce & egg roll wrappers in their life, anyway?

BBQ Bacon Meatloaf

Making my own meatloaf makes me feel like a real grown-up.  Like I'm supermom (to my pets), housewife of the year (to my boyfriend)... like whipping up a family dinner is no big thing.

I guess I just love how you cannot mess up meatloaf.  It always tastes delicious, always tastes like home, and always makes the perfect leftovers for lunches.  Top it with BBQ sauce & bacon, and it's seriously taken to a whole new level!

DIY Essential Oil Surface Cleaners

Over the past year, we've taken our commitment to clean living to the next level-- by overhauling all of the toxic products we possibly can in our home.  Because, if we're going to put so much effort into putting all of the best foods inside of our bodies... then why cover the outside with toxic lotions & potions?  And how can we then be comfortable inhaling the suspicious chemical cocktails in cleaning products, laundry soaps, dryer sheets, and candles?

It's caused a huge shift in my thinking, and has definitely made me take a second look at all of the advertisement we are constantly being faced with:  pushing so many products that we not only don't need, but are actually harmful to us.

I've invested in some clean, all-natural household products that we can make use of in so many different ways, and can't believe the money it's saved us.  We're also left with fresher-smelling surfaces, much more cabinet space, and far fewer headaches.  In other words, we're never going back.
