Special Deal: MightyNest

I am super excited to share a special deal with you today from a great company…and just in time for the holidays! Our newest sponsor, MightyNest, was founded by two parents when, after the birth of their first child, they realized many of the products in their home contained potentially harmful chemicals and had unnecessary risks associated with them. After years of tedious research they knew there had to be a better way, which is when MightyNest was born. Today their site is a robust online store, resource center, and community dedicated to helping parents create healthy, safe homes for their families. Plus it’s pretty cute looking and well-organized…so go check it out!

I love how MightyNest has done the homework for us by ensuring their 1,000+ products are all free from harmful chemicals such as BPA, PVC, and lead. They work with only trusted manufacturers, handpicking each product based on safety, durability and quality. And what do you know…MightyNest carries a few of my favorite products that I am excited to share below, but first let me tell you about the special deal they are offering our readers!

Three coupon codes good through Dec. 24th:

MightyNest "Special Deal" on 100 Days of Real Food

Two of my favorite MightyNest products:

Duralex 10-Piece Glass Bowl SetMightyNest Mixing Bowls "Special Deal" on 100 Days of Real Food

We’ve had this set of bowls since we got married (12+ years ago!) and they are still going strong. It’s actually hard to believe that 3 houses and 2 kids later not one bowl in the set has broken. These bowls are one of those items in my kitchen (like a good cutting board and knife) that I use almost every day. They are great for mixing, holding chopped prep items, and even serving. I highly recommend this set of bowls!

Set of 6 Glass Tumblers for Kids (7.75 ounce size)Duralex glass cups for kids "Special Deal" on 100 Days of Real Food

We’ve all heard that plastics can be somewhat questionable so as soon as I felt my youngest daughter was old enough to “graduate” from plastic sippy cups (around 4 years old), I quickly gave them away and purchased a set of these glass tumblers for both my daughters to use instead. These glasses are pretty durable because they are made with tempered glass that’s more than twice as strong as ordinary glass. In the year and a half since we’ve had them I think only one has broken. I keep them in a drawer down low and love that if my daughters are thirsty they can get one out and fill it up with water on the outside of the fridge all by themselves. Oh and I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you that they feel pretty cool using “glass” cups of course (they like to show their little friends!).

A MightyNest product I’d like to try: 

Glass Microwave Popcorn Popper (1 quart size)

This is one of Mighty Nest’s most popular products and I can see why. You can avoid those microwavable bags of popcorn that are full of junky additives (and other questionable stuff) by popping your own kernels in this reusable glass jar! I already knew you could microwave popcorn without relying on those prefilled bags, but I didn’t realize jars like this were available to make it even easier (and less wasteful). Plus Mighty Nest is currently offering these at a price that’s lower than Amazon…so be sure to act fast if you want one!

      Thank you for introducing me to Mighty Nest. I’ve got three sizes of the glass tumblers and THEY ARE AWESOME! I ordered the popcorn popper too and can’t wait to give it a try. Their products really are great and arrive quickly which is nice when you’re excited to get your new purchases! :)

      Thanks! I just used the code to order the Duralex bowls. Now I just have to wait for them to arrive!

      AWESOME RESOURCE! I just bought a Christmas present. Thank you!

      Thank you for sharing this great company. I can’t wait to order some products! I have to say that I am very impressed with the lifestyle that you have chosen for your family. I strive to do this myself. However, I would like to ask you if you have done research on microwaves. And why yours is using one? My family hasn’t used one for about 6 years because of info I received years ago. I really value your opinion and was just curious.

        Traci – Thanks! I’m not yet convinced either way on the safety of microwave oven use and have not yet done my own quality research (it’s apparent I’m going to have to do a lot more than just search the web to find a satisfactory answer). So long story short, the research is on the to-do list, and in the mean time we use our microwave oven very little. We find it is usually better tasting (and still pretty easy) to reheat food on the stove top or in the toaster oven.

          Good luck with that research. After approximately 60 mins of googling I found the following:
          1. Peer-reviewed articles as found on Pubmed are scarce and there are no current reviews available.
          2. The usual suspects as Dr. Mercola & Co. warn about microwaving.
          3. The by far best article is that one: http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2006/03/23/1597903.htm
          It describes, that critiques are referring mainly to two “studies”, which in fact are not real studies. In my 60 minutes googling I stumbled over those two resources (one article in Lancet from 1989, and one article in the Journal Franz Weber by Hertel & Blanc) over an over again, but I was not able to find them in their original form. I noticed, that – as always – different homepages are copying from each other and over the course of time the information gets screwed up (like in the telephone game). The Natural Life Magazine http://www.naturallifemagazine.com/0506/microwave.htm writes: “microwaving baby formula converts certain trans-amino acids into synthetic substances like trans-fatty acids”. – some basic chemistry knowledge tells me, that this sentence is BS.

          Common sense thoughts to consider:
          1. Harm due to radiation?
          2. Harm due to alteration of food composition?
          3. Loss of nutrients (as far as I can tell from my limited reading is, that every heating method destroys some nutrients – a spanish group gets repeatedly cited for a 2003 study in broccoli, that showed a strong decrease in “cancer-preventing” phenolic compounds by microwaving, but in a later study they report much less effects: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdfplus/10.1021/jf071680t)

          IMHO, information on homepages like Dr. Mercola, Global Healing, Natural Life Magazine, or smaller ones like Foodbabe & Co have to be taken with a HUGE grain of salt. Either, the authors have a too poor scientific understanding of the facts or they are scientifically sound, but only present the work that fits their message (Dr. Mercola).

      I’ve ordered quite a few items from Mighty Nest and I love them. I’ve ordered art supplies for my son, a razor for me, and food storage containers. I love every item I have. I look there first before going anywhere else.

      Thank you so much for sharing info about this company and the discount code. I was just able to order the Duralex bowls plus a larger glass bowl. I’m so excited to have them arrive. Thanks for everything you do. Your recipes are great :) Keep up the good work! Happy Holidays :
