Five Ways to Pack a Fun (Picnic) Lunch for Kids

Picnic BasketThis is Part Four in the “Summer in the Kitchen” series.

Relishing their break from school, many kids thrive during summer vacation.  Just as kids are flourishing in the summer heat, so is the bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses.    At adult family-style picnics, often things like potato salad can be the culprit when someone gets an upset stomach after the celebration.  While potato salad and similar items may be your favorites, they most likely won’t be on top of your kids ‘wish list’ for their picnic at the park.  Lunch with the kids often means a main dish served between slices of bread, so you may not realize that extra diligence may be required when sandwiches are served in the summer heat.  These suggestions compiled both from the Federal Food and Drug Administration and from my own years of packing outdoor lunches will help you overcome this challenge.

Three Tips on Finding Fresh Food at Your Local Farmers Market

Farmers Market signThis is Part Three in the “Summer in the Kitchen” series

Part of living a healthier lifestyle involves eating food that is grown by you, or grown locally.  While garden space may be at a premium in certain areas (like the Twin Cities Metro in Minnesota where we live), many places still do have places where farmers can display their wares.  Over the past decade according to official records, the number of Farmers Markets have quadrupled across the United States.  People are showing with their wallets that buying local is important to them.  Being able to buy your produce directly from those growing the food is definitely a wonderful opportunity.

Before you run right out to the nearest Farmers Market, there are three things that you may want to know: Continue reading

BacLockRecently, Norwex made the change from Antibac to BacLock™protection!

Don’t worry though; our microfiber cloths have not changed their magical silver abilities, just a new name for it! This is very exciting for the company because this trademark is specific for Norwex, so you can’t find it anywhere else! This means that now the word “BacLock™” will appear in place of “Antibac” on the Norwex products. Again, the quality and properties of the products have not changed.

Why BacLock™? Think about it: The self-cleaning micro silver in our cloths goes to work with self purification properties against mold, fungi, and bacterial odor within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.  Amazing!!

The high quality Norwex microfiber cloths picks up EVERYTHING in its path, allowing the micro silver to then go to work in the cloth. There is nothing harmful about the BacLock™ feature, as it is environmentally friendly and SAFE for your family to use!

Let’s key in on some of Norwex’s top selling BacLock™ products!  The Enviro Cloth, Window Cloth, and Dusting Mitt are three of our top selling items!!  Those three items can replace almost all of the cleaners you have around your house.  Read more about it HERE.

Needless to say, BacLock™ is ESSENTIAL for safe and effective household cleaning, as each of our products has a specific purpose around the home. Instead of choosing chemical infused and toxic cleaners around your house, use the BacLock™ option and save time, money and your health! Since Norwex is family friendly, get your spouse and kids involved! Make daily chores into clean up races!

All you need is water and the cloth, the BacLock™ will do the rest!

Ins and Outs of Organic and Natural Food

This is Part 2 in the “Summer in the Kitchen” series.

Natural Apple SauceLooking for some “ins and outs” of the whole “organic” and “natural food” world?  This has been a journey for my family; one that we continue on each and every day.

Let’s start by talking about labeling.  Labeling can be such an interesting thing.  Many of the words we come to rely on like ‘all natural‘ aren’t regulated words, so their meanings can really vary.  Reading food labels can be an amusing pastime.  Seeing that a jar of applesauce is “naturally fat-free” does not mean much since really the only way to add fat to that jar would be to add oil.  I like my applesauce with a bit of cinnamon & sugar not with Canola.

Natural Flavors:”  That phrase can be seen on a box of fruit snacks that have at one time found their way in and out of our cupboard.  What I found was that I would find the word “juice” when reading the ingredient list.  Yet, often I would also see corn syrup on top of the list as well.  That’s not what I would personally call “natural” when it comes to snacks for my children.  Unfortunately for them, that means they rarely get things like ‘fruit snacks’ from a box anymore.  I heard grumbling about it for the first month or two, but I’ve found now that they don’t even miss those type of treats.  They are much happier with a “natural” apple or pear.  Continue reading
