Back at the Lakeside Ranches

We are happy to be back up at the Lakeside Ranches (Inverness, Fl). We moved from Tampa to Inverness about a year ago. Now that the kids are getting older we are keeping them busy with Ranch chores- feeding the horses and taking care of the animals. We just started Pony camp for Summer 2019. The boys are now camp counselors and they help the younger campers with Pony care. It is a great summer at the Ranch.

Best natural sunscreens

Summer time isn't quite over, but it is getting pretty close.  These are some of the best natural sunscreens for kids.  School starts in the next few weeks.  Life with 3 kids is really hectic.  There isn't as much time around the house for me to make the natural sunscreen formula that I make from all my own ingredients here.  There are great natural sunscreens [...]

Weddings at Lakeside Ranch

We have moved back to Tampa, Florida and our family is enjoying the winter in Florida.  I am now hosting weddings at Lakeside Ranch in Inverness, FL.  We are having lots of fun!  It has been an interesting transition the last few months.  Julie is 5 months old and she is growing like a weed.  Grant is in first grade and he loves it.  I [...]

ABC Homeopathy

A great book on the ABC’s of Homeopathy.  The basics.  Simplified.  Easy to read.  Many of my readers (and friends) email me often and ask me what books I recommend for parents wanting to learn more about Homeopathy and Childhood Illnesses.  This is one of the first books I read when I started using natural healing.  It is a great book to start with. Dana Ullman [...]

My trip to the Emergency Room

I wanted to write a quick update about my health status.  I was severely ill the last 10 days and I ended up in the Emergency Room twice! Not something that I am used too.  I haven't been to a hospital in over 5 years (birth of first son).  I haven't even been to a regular doctor (besides a regular check up) for over 3 years. [...]

Wheeler Historic Farm visit

The boys have been missing our Florida Farms the last few weeks.  I have been really missing them too.  Little boys need wide open spaces to run and and explore.  That is the thing I miss the most about Florida right now.  The mountains are beautiful and there are some amazing hikes in the Millcreek Canyon, which is about 2 minutes from my house.  It [...]

No Corn/ No Soy Chickens

I received and email a few days ago from Utah Natural Meat mentioning this little bit of information: "We are excited to announce that these are NO CORN / NO SOY chickens. This will be our first group of birds that we have raised without the use of those two grains. They have also been grass fed through the winter months by using barley sprouts from our [...]

Benefits of Epsom Salt

A few days ago I was shopping at a local supermarket and there was a sale for Epsom Salt.  I thought this would be a good time to stock up.  Why?  Well, Epsom Salt has powerful benefits.  The first time I juice fasted (10 yrs ago), epsom salt added to warm water was a beverage I drank once a day.  It was a great way [...]

Quinoa Chocolate/Peanut Butter Cookies

I found a great cookie recipe with Quinoa as the main ingredient (from pinterest).  I was a little surprised at first, but so excited to try.  These cookies turned out great.  These cookies are not too sweet, but have more of a granola bar type flavor.  I still really enjoyed them and my boys liked them too.  Just the perfect amount of sweetness and good [...]

Benefits of Sauerkraut

What are the benefits of sauerkraut?  There are so many health benefits.  I have been eating a lot of sauerkraut this summer.  I am not sure why I am craving so much sauerkraut, but health experts believe that as your body (and gut) heals itself...even your cravings become healthier.  This must be the case with me.  My "bad" (unhealthy) cravings have almost disappeared these last [...]
