What's Goin' On ...

by - May 02, 2012

Just a couple quick peaks into life around here.

New favorite gluten-free lunchbox item: Brown rice tortilla wraps! We filled it with leftover guac from the previous night's dinner, some nitrate-free honey ham, spinach, red onion and mustard.

The brown rice tortillas I buy are from Food for Life. I get them through Azure Standard.

Other things my daughter loves in her tortilla wrap: salad with italian dressing, julienned veggies & hummus, and homemade chicken salad (using vegenaise instead of mayo)


Strawberries! We are picking so many strawberries right now. 100% organic and delish! Interesting note is that I'm find the potted strawberries are bigger than my raised-box strawberries.


All-purpose cleaner. We've been using this homemade all-purpose cleaner for about 6 months now and have never looked back. We save citrus peels from juicing and put them in a glass mason jar. Fill the jar with half distilled white vinegar and half water. Let the jar sit for about a week (or two) and it is ready to go! If you don't want to wait, you can accomplish the same idea by using sweet orange or lemon essential oil in the water/vinegar mixture. Sunburst essential oil blend is my favorite and we use it in homemade laundry detergent, too.

Use it to clean your kitchen counters, bathrooms, even glass. Great stuff!

I use a funnel to add the infused vinegar/water cleaner to a cheap spray bottle we purchased at Target. I always have a couple jars "marinating" under the sink, ready to refill my spray bottle. Add a microfiber towel to your arsenal and you are one mean cleaning machine! :)

  1. seriously jealous of those strawberries. ESP. since organic strawberries are out of this world expensive!!! And those wraps look delish too! I actually did the orange peel vinegar thing last month and I love it too!!! It works wonderfully, and smells slightly better than the straight vinegar smell:) haha.
