Whip it good! I LOVE my new milk frother!

I LOVE my milk frother!! I got the one from IKEA called a PRODUKT. It's only $2.99.

I use it for mixing my fresh salad dressing right in the bottle. It breaks up the clumps of xanthan gum I use to thicken my dressing.

I also use it for making hot cacao from scratch. I add a little hot almond milk to my cacao powder and sweetener & use the frother to mix it. Then I add the rest of the hot almond milk. Yum!

Of course, It's classic use is to froth coffee drinks.

Collecting "Treasures" on my hikes. Channeling my inner "Hunter Gatherer"!

Every time I go for a hike or a walk I collect a little "Treasure". Sometimes it's an interesting seed pod, or a rock or a pretty shell. It's always something small and interesting. I keep the treasures in a glass vase on my desk. It makes me happy to remember all the adventures we shared! And it motivates me to get out there more often!

Flies bugging you? Try Fly Herding (no kidding!)

Last year we had a horrific infestation of big ugly flies. It was night time and my husband noticed that the flies were attracted to the light. He had an idea: He turned off all the lights except the one in the dining room; then he went around the house and swooshed at the flies with a dish towel. All the flies headed for the light. Next he turned on the light in the kitchen and turned off the light in the dining room. He repeated the process, herding all the flies into the kitchen.

Fat Free Salad Dressing Thickening Secret

When I make fat free salad dressing I add a tsp of either Thick & Thin Not Starch, or xanthan gum. This makes a nice thick texture, and the dressing sticks to the salad better. It also adds healthy fiber to my diet.

Stacking glass food containers

I recently switched to glass food containers for left overs. I hated to stack them because they stuck together sometimes and I was afraid they would break. I bought a package of coffee filters and now I put a paper coffee filter between the containers. It works great and of course they are reusable.

Nutrition vs Cravings

My wellness Dr. explained to me that my cravings were happening because my body wasn't getting the nutrition it needs. I've learned that when I'm getting all the nutrients I need on a daily basis I don't have a problem with cravings. My body seems to calm down. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me.
