We’ve worked hard to build this community and would like to keep it a happy place. So in summary…please respect the opinions of others and save the drama for your mama! And if you do get banned, don’t take it personally. With the Facebook growth lately we’re having to clean house with a heavy hand (again, all in an effort to keep this a happy place for our valued readers).

    I have a question about your free meal plans. I see that you are feeding a family of 4, but, for example, you are only buying 10 oz. of fish. Are your portions smaller than the recommended portions of 4oz person?
    Thank you,
    Katherine

      Hi Katherine. It would depend on the recipe but generally 4oz is a good target for the meat/protein course.

  2. Hello there. You’ve performed an excellent job. I’ll certainly dig it and for my part recommend to my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited form this website

  3. I just found Cinnamon Hill and I’m getting into grating my own spices. I was wondering if there is a similar company or information on using ginger, clove, and nutmeg.

  4. Hi! I love this idea and would be very interested in more school lunch options! My problem is that my kids are allergic to both dairy and gluten. I saw that you offer filters and I got so excited to look through your gluten & dairy free options, but there were only two. That wouldn’t be as big of an issue if they didn’t both look like they wouldn’t filmy first grader up. He needs a substantial mid day meal and I am running out of protein idea that don’t make him feel like he’s just snacking. If I knew you had more options for me, I would order in a heart beat. Andrya

  5. I just discovered you and have enjoyed the blog. I would like to know your opinion of Eden Foods out of Clinton MI.

  6. Hello, this question is regarding the piece you wrote on ultra pasteurization. I believe you said that organic valley used carrageenan in their ultra pasteurized products for stability. I looked on the labels of my organic milk and half and half which seem to always be UP and there was no carrageen listed. I won’t if I can help it, buy or use anything with carrageenan in it. Do they not list it as an ingredient?
    Thank you,

  7. I’m looking for a good deodorant for my husband and thought I remembered Lisa posting about what her husband likes to use? I can’t seem to find it. What deodorants do you recommend for the whole family? Thanks!

  8. Hi! I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask a random question, but I did not see a “contact us” anywhere. I am wondering about the “natural flavors” in LaCroix sparkling water. Their website states “The flavors are derived from the natural essence oils extracted from the named fruit used in each of our LaCroix flavors. There are no sugars or artificial ingredients contained in, nor added to, these extracted flavors.”

    It doesn’t state how the flavors are extracted, but as they are derived from essence oils are we ok?

    Thanks!

      Hi there. Well, it is really hard to tell with “natural flavors”. I don’t buy the flavored stuff much at all anymore and instead just go with a squeeze of a lemon/lime/orange or a splash or 100% juice.

    I was so impressed with your site and the content that I actually subscribed. This is the first time I have ever subscribed to anything on line.
    A year ago I was involved in an accident and broke a couple of vertebrae in my lower back. With all the sitting around that I had to do I put on a few extra pounds.
    Information in your site has me excited about losing a few pounds, getting in shape and eating healthier.
    I am looking forward to this venture.

  10. Are you aware of any “lists” available regarding foods (whole or processed) that are genetically modified?

    Thank you!
