Breaking: You've Been Eating Pineapple Wrong

Pineapple is delicious, but a pain to prep.


What if there was an easier way to eat the prickly fruit? According to a new viral video, there sure is and it's a game changer.

Check it out, but consider this a warning if you're sensitive to chewing sounds like me, watch it on mute.

My side of the desk is "cleaner" and I'll prove it...

The battle is on and it seems like it gets more intense everyday.  Clorox, Lysol, Mrs. Meyers, Seventh Generation, all household names for cleaning that no one bats an eye at. 

Unless you're me or someone living in my home.

Two are longtime staple cleaning names and two are newer, marketed as non-toxic cleaning products. 

All of these products have either been phased out or are almost phased out of my home and my family's life. Why? Because I learned the truth about them that I now am sharing with you.  

Yes, I still regularly clean and take needed supplies to my son's school. I just have replaced all the above with either cleaning products Young Living makes in their Thieves Household Cleaning line, or things I have made using YL Essential Oils. I made this decision for my family after extensive research of my own that was not hard to find.  One phrase like "toxic cleaning products" in the google bar and the information is right in front of you.

Got Rage? This New Workout Might Be For You

This ain't your mom's yoga class.


The newest trend in yoga is called "Rage Yoga," and combines yoga, yelling, cursing and BEER! 


According toAshley Duzich who leads Rage Yoga classes at Brash Brewery in Houston, "We are all angry about something and we all have been holding onto an ‘F’-bomb for a little bit too long...So that’s what this does – is – it allows you to have a safe space to let go of your and frustration and rage in a healthy way… and then also wash it all away with some ice cold beer.”

Classes are being taught in Alberta, Canada as well as Houston and it's highly recommended that you don't bring your children.

It may not be for everyone, but if you've been silently seething over the laundry pile that no one else seems to see or your boss that reminds you a little too much of Lumbergh from Office Space, Rage Yoga just may be something to look into.

On the Rage Yoga website, Rage Yoga founder, Lindsay, describes Rage Yoga as "alternative …

Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight.

I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me.

People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is different than convent…

Citronella Oil, Not Just For Candles

Since Punxsutawney Phil blessed us all with the news of an early spring, I thought I would take a minute to share my love for, IMO, a very underrated YL essential oil. 
Citronella.
Now, when most people hear this word they think of outdoor activities and those pesky mosquitos, hence the popularity of all those citronella scented candles.  
But did you know that’s just the tip of the ice berg and those candles could be doing you more harm than good, considering all the other toxic ingredients you're inhaling? 
Let’s start with animals and how this is so beneficial to them.  Besides the obvious of properly diluted sprays you could make to help keep the blood suckers off, you can also use Citronella to aid in the removal of fleas, ear mites, lice and even mange, just to name a few. It can also aid in the healing from tick bites and the bacteria they leave behind. Pretty impressive, huh?  (Just be sure you are consulting your veterinarian any time you're using oils). This still is on…

Pringles Wine Tumblers Are Now A Real Thing

Remember the woman in Texas who was banned from her local Walmart a few weeks ago for riding an electric cart around the parking lot and drinking wine out of a Pringles can?

Well now, thanks to an artist named Celeste Powers from Coldwater, Mississippi, you can get your own Pringles wine tumbler from her Etsy shop.



According to Ms. Powers' Etsy page, "Now you can be like the Lady banned from walmart on electric scooter."

If you do end up like her we beg you, send us pictures!

Cheers,
