Gluten Free/Dairy Free & Delicious Lactation Cookies!

Gluten Free/Dairy Free & Delicious Lactation Cookies!

Keeping baked goods gluten free, dairy free & delicious is not always easy. Except with this recipe!

I believe there are so many healthful benefits to breastfeeding and that’s why I’m committed to breastfeeding Elijah for as long as possible (hoping for the recommended 2 years). That can mean being aware of the water intake, nutrition and sleep that I give my body and it can also mean giving myself extra boosts to make sure my supply matches his growth spurts! I mean, sometimes as a parent you have to sacrifice to go the extra mile for your kid and if that means eating cookies then I’ll just have to do what needs to be done. For the baby.

I’ve used this recipe several times and noticed an increase each time. I know it’s a keeper so I’m sharing it with you! I really don’t know exactly how many cookies a person “needs” to eat before they notice a difference in milk supply but I’m sure I’ve never had the problem of haven eaten to few. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 Cups Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

6 Tbsp. Brewers Yeast

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 Tbsp Flaxseed Meal

2 Tbsp Water

1/2 Cup Avocado Oil

1/2 Cup Applesauce

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup White Sugar

2 Eggs

1 tsp Vanilla

3 Cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal

3/4 Cup GF/DF Chocolate Chips

3/4 Cup Raisins

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350F.


Mix together flaxseed meal and water, set aside for 3-5 minutes.
Sift together flour, brewer’s yeast, salt, cinnamon and baking soda.


In a large mixing bowl, cream together oil, applesauce and sugars. Add eggs one at a time, mix well.


Stir flaxseed mixture and add with vanilla to the oil mix. Beat until blended.

Sift together dry ingredients, except oats, chips and raisins.

Add to oil mixture.

Stir in oats, chocolate chips and raisins.

Refrigerate dough for at least one hour.

Using a large cookie scoop, drop onto baking sheet.

Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.

Enjoy your cookies and abundance of milk!

Pro tip: if you’re just looking for delicious cookies without the increased milk production, just leave out the brewers yeast!

Essential Oil Recipe’s That I Love!!

These recipe’s can be made into rollers for topical application, diffused for aromatic use or made into a specified product, for example hand soap. Please see specific instructions for the type of product you are making!

To make a roll on recipe’s: EO’s dilution instructions are commonly a 1:4 ratios. However, some are different. (check the individual bottle) For general use, I use an average of 35 TOTAL drops EO per 10 ml roller bottle then fill the rest with carrier oil. You can use whatever carrier oil you like, I just linked to one that I have used and like. Equal parts in each recipe unless otherwise specified. This is simply my personal preference.

To use in your diffuser: Do not dilute with carrier oil if you are diffusing them. Just add the oil and the water to the diffuser. I usually add equal parts of each oil to make a total of 15 drops EO in the diffuser

Dishwasher Soap

Switching from toxic dishwasher pods has been one of the hardest transitions to the natural side as far as household products go. I’ve tried a few recipes that didn’t work. After spending time and money on ingredients that ended up wasted, I still had dirty dishes. I gave up and returned to toxin filled pods (fragrance, triclosan and sodium hypochlorite which can cause hormone disruption, asthma, reproducitve toxicity, infertility, thyroid imbalance, antibiotic resistance and organ system toxicity). I know they are bad for our bodies but I have stuff to do and at least they work, right?!

The other day, after roasting some veggies on a silicone baking tray that had been washed in the dishwasher, the veggies actually tasted like dishwasher pods! Just ewe.

There has got to be a better solution. After searching my Essential Oil FB groups, I came up with this recipe. It was easy to follow, it smells good and after washing a few loads, it seems to work well!

I’m so excited! It’s toxin free, cheaper and works!! I promise to update you here if I change my vote. I also have a couple friends trying it out to see if it works for them but so far, I think I could be in love!

What you’ll need!

  • 3 Cups of Hot Water
  • 3 Tbsp Castile soap (I use Dr. Bronners Unscented)
  • 1 Cup Washing Soda
  • 15 Drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 2 Capfuls Thieves Household Cleaner
  • 3 – 4 tsp Guar Gum

Heat water in stainless steel pot on stove top until it’s almost boiling, remove from heat and stir in washing soda until completely dissolved.

Once the mixture has cooled, mix castile soap, thieves cleaner, lemon essential oil, and guar gum in a separate bowl until an even consistency is achieved (you can add some extra water here if you need to) then add to the water and washing soda mixture!

Let sit for about an hour mixing every so often until mixture has a uniform gel-like consistency. Store in a glass sealed container.

I use 2-3 tbsp per dish washing cycle on heavy wash. Sometimes, I also add 1 Tbsp baking soda to the pre wash (I did this with the pods too. It helps cut even more junk)

Are you gonna try it? Let me know what you think!

Essential Oils & Kids “Out of the Mouths of Babes” & Bedtime Favorites! Post #3

THE PREMIUM STARTER KIT OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES

09

When it comes to essential oils, there is fun for everyone! The Happy Oilers group asked some Little Happy Oilers to tell us how they use their favorite oils. And it’s a really good time.

Without further ado, we present to you….. Kids Say the Darndest Things: Premium Starter Kit Style!

“If you’re in Disneyland or something and do too many teacups, you might get nauseous. But use Peppermint for it. That’s all “

“For school, maybe if your parents let you bring some oils to school (or when you’re doing your homework), you could use Peppermint to help you focus.” –

“Thieves helps our respiratory system too! Respiratory system is how we breathe. And, well, if we don’t breathe, we’ll die.”

“We put it on our feet, because it’s safe for kids there. And then it goes through our skin, into our blood, and all through our body to help us stay healthy!”

“Helps you stay healthy and also feel better. You can spray it in your mouth.”

DIGIZE:

(Vitality for internal use)

“It supports our digestive system. That’s why it’s called DiGize. It helps us to digest our food…..which is kinda gross.”

“If you can’t poop sometimes, that’s called constipation. I think that’s very gross. But DiGize helps you poop regularly, which is also gross.”

“It helps you look younger on the outside if you swallow Copaiba, the Vitality kind.”

“It makes you not stress!”

Essential Oils & Kids. Toxins in the home. Post #2

WHAT’S LURKING IN YOUR HOME?

05

Let’s chat about some mind-blowing facts about what is lurking in our homes. I had no idea there were harmful ingredients in the things I used on my skin daily, and so if you are in this place, or anywhere near it, please know that this is a judgment free zone! All of us in here are on a wellness journey and you are invited, exactly as you are, and at whatever stage you are in!

  1. Store bought soaps contain sodium laureth sulfate, a toxic chemical used to remove car grease off of garage floors. This can be damaging to the skin, as well as disruptive to immune health and hormonal health.
  2. Both adult and kid shampoos contain phthalates, a toxic chemical that has been banned in children’s toys, but is still found in body cleansing products. It is known to be an endocrine disruptor, and very hard for the body to break down when used consistently during bath time.
  3. The main ingredient in candles and home sprays is formaldehyde, which is the number one cancer causing chemical, and is what we get embalmed with at the morgue. They say inhaling scents from candles or sprays is the equivalent to inhaling second hand smoke, which is even more dangerous than actually smoking the cigarette itself.
  4. Store bought household cleaning products contain 2-butoxyethanol, which is a toxin known to cause sore throat, narcosis, and severe liver and kidney damage.
  5. Store bought laundry detergents and dryer sheets contain alpha-terpineol, benzyl alcohol, and camphor, which are all toxic ingredients that cause central nervous system disorders, loss of muscular coordination, central nervous system depression, headaches, nausea, and vomiting.
  6. Many baby products contain the listed ingredient “fragrance,” which is simply a broad category that hides hundreds of toxic chemicals behind that word itself. Companies are not required to reveal the actual chemicals that are within the “fragrance” category, hence keeping the public in the dark about the true toxicity of the products we use on our little ones. This can cause huge hormone disruption.
  7. Women apply over 300 chemicals to their face and skin per day, including talc, bismuth, parabens, lead, mercury, and mineral oil. These chemicals are all found in store bought skin care and makeup products, which can disrupt the endocrine system, are highly carcinogenic, and have even been found in tumors.

When we use these products on ourselves and our children on a daily basis, the toxins build up and accumulate within our bodies – a process called “bioaccumulation.” This means that the more we expose ourselves to these toxins, the harder it is for our bodies to break them down. Because of this build up, it causes both minor and major health issues, that otherwise could be prevented if we simply quit using those toxins. Even if these issues aren’t apparent right now, they will be apparent later on down the road.

What’s even scarier to know, is some of the most popular “organic” products can still contain some the ingredients above. Even if you think you’re making a better decision about going organic instead of conventional, there is still a probability that your organic product is still highly toxic for yourself or your little ones.

Don’t believe me? Visit the Environmental Working Group website at ewg.org, plug in the ingredients of your products, and see how high it is rated in toxicity. Or, download the “Think Dirty” app on your smartphone, and look at the toxicity levels. The results will shock you, and will make you want to throw those products in the trash.

 

WHAT TO USE INSTEAD:

06

Young Living products have NONE of the chemicals listed above and only contains the purest of plant based ingredients. While they are an essential oil company, they are also a fully-equipped natural products company. They have supplements, beauty products, household cleaning products, stuff for kids and babies, home purifiers, bath and shower products, oral care, and yes – even makeup! This makes it easy to simply ditch the products you’re currently using, and replace it with something Young Living has instead. It is your one-stop-shop for all things you will need for yourself, for your home, for your children, and for your health!

Simply put, the only thing inside their essential oil bottles is the plant itself – no additives, fillers, synthetic fragrances, preservatives, or dyes (which is NOT the same for store bought essential oils, hence why other brands can be dangerous and highly toxic). The same goes for all of their products – the only ingredients within the products are the ones listed on the label, and they are all plant based. Not one single ingredient is synthetic, toxic, or chemically derived!!!

BUT IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE….

07

Some people have a misconception of thinking that using Young Living products in their home and on their family is a new or added expense. WRONG! It’s not! Instead, it’s a shift in spending. Everyone spends money on products every day, every month, every year – whether the products are good for you or not. With this route, instead of going to the store for all of your products, you are getting them from Young Living. I personally LOVE online shopping and HATE going to the store! I have also found it to be true that I use a smaller amount of product than I’m used to with other brands. High quality simply goes further and lasts longer. Since you don’t need to use as much to get great results, it doesn’t cost as much! Let’s talk about 5 ways you can so totally afford Young Living.

…………………………..

  1. Get a Wholesale Membership!

This is the route that 99% of people go when they want to start using Young Living products. With this route, you get wholesale pricing on everything they have instead of retail pricing, which saves you 24% on every single item they’ve got! If you’re here, chances are you already have one of these babies!!! Just log into your VO and get to shopping!!!!

…………………………….

  1. Get on Essential Rewards Immediately!

Another cool thing about Young Living, is they give cash back to frequent buyers. There is a super incredible program called Essential Rewards, which acts as a “monthly box” that you can customize and get shipped to you every month, filled with products you are needing for your family or in your home. Over time, you can earn up to 25% back in points for your orders, and those points you can use towards getting products for FREE. With Essential Rewards, you can also take advantage of the FREE monthly promotions that Young Living has, cheaper shipping options, and the option to cancel at any time. So, basically, Young Living pays you to order their products through this program. Name another store that will do that for you?! NONE!

This program also gives you a means of affordably ditching and switching, which can be a process to do. So, this month, you can order everything for your kiddos, next month household cleaning products. And the next month, you can order beauty products, baby products, or supplements, or essential oils, or makeup, whatever you need – so on and so forth!

With all of these perks and benefits of the Essential Rewards program, it’s only a minimum of 50 PV in products for each monthly box, which can be the equivalent of $50. Now, before you think that’s a lot, it’s TOTALLY not! We all spend well over $50 a month on products every single month. All this is, is shifting that spending from the store to something natural instead. Even people with the most minimal budgets can do Essential Rewards!

…………………………….

  1. Get FREE products with Young Living’s monthly promotions!

Young Living has this cool tradition, where they give away an assortment of products to members every month for FREE. For anyone who orders over a certain amount in a single order, Young Living will include some free products in the box for you. Normally, there are 4 different ordering tiers – 100, 190, 250, or 300. If you order over any of those amounts in one single order, they will automatically include the FREE monthly products, which could add up to hundreds of dollars in stuff you didn’t have to pay for. Cool, huh?!

…………………………….

  1. Create DIY products yourself!

Some people find even more ways to pinch pennies and reduce toxins in their home by creating DIY products with Young Living’s essential oils and products. There are literally thousands upon thousands of recipes out there to create chemical-free options for yourself and your family. When you add Young Living’s essential oils to your DIY products, the powerful plant properties will add natural fragrance, be soothing to the skin, act as a natural purifying agent, and will support your overall health at the same time, all depending on what you’re making. Basically, adding oils to your DIY recipes will make them even better for you than if you didn’t add them at all!

…………………………….

  1. Share Young Living with friends, get paid for their referral!

When we say Young Living literally pays you back, they not only do that when you order, they also do that whenever you refer friends. For every friend you refer, if that friend creates a wholesale account and orders a Premium Starter Kit like you did, you can get $50. So, if you refer 3 friends to Young Living, it could pay you back for the Premium Starter Kit you initially purchased for yourself! Also, if you keep referring friends, it could get your monthly Essential Rewards orders paid for, too, that way you will NEVER pay for your products! Talk about a money saver! What other stores (ahem… Target where you at!?) deposit cash in your bank account for referring friends? NONE!

THE BEST WAY TO GET STARTED

08

There are hundreds of uses for each essential oil. And Young Living offers HUNDREDS of oils to choose from.

But remember how I talked about how a wholesale membership is the way to GO when it comes to kicking toxins out affordably? Well thankfully Young Living has curated the PERFECT kit of essential oils to get you that wholesale membership. The kit is valued at over $330.00 if you were to purchase everything separately without your wholesale membership, but they’ve priced it at only $160.00. A savings of almost 50%!! The kit they’ve curated is PERFECT because it includes 11 oils and a diffuser giving you hundreds of uses for the most common things you’d need to use oils for! We’ll let the kids break down the uses in the next post 😉

Pets and Essential Oils!

Our animals certainly deserve the most natural care, just like we do! Sometimes it’s hard  to know if certain oils are safe or exactly how to go about making an oil safe by diluting it. Thankfully, my sister created this very helpful post with some fun recipes to help us out! Just click the link and enjoy! 

I once saw my sister put a few drops of oil on her crazy hyper boxer/ lab/ pitbull mix and I was shocked to see Bailey calm down in maybe a minute. I had never seen anything like it, and I had been close to this dog for a long time. That moment was when […]

Cloth diapers. Really.

Its been about 4 months since i started and it turns out that i may have over reacted. Cloth diapering is not nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be. The online support group has been amazing. Not a question has been left unanswered and I have not had any real problems yet!

PLUS, a friend of mine gave us her whole diaper stash which was a GIANT blessing! Since we have been able to try a variety of diapers I can tell you that they each have pros and cons but none of them have any cons that are deal breakers for us. My husband is even using them with no problems and minimal complaining!

My personal favorite is still the hybrid grovia 2 in 1 that I originally bought because they are very similar to the convenience of disposables and are super easy to use!

I feel like we have everything that we need so I can do a wash about every 5 days and never run out (I just usually wash on day 5 so they don’t get to gross). Our stash has about 5 dozen diapers. It includes the Grovia hybrid that I originally bought, Purple Unicorn with snaps and a variety of pocket diapers/ inserts. We also have 2 yards of flannel that I used for making wipes, a set of 4 wool dryer balls to help with shortening dry time, 5 dekor reusable diaper bags, 2 decor diaper pails (one for the nursery and one for the bathroom) a spray pal splatter shield, a spray nozzle for the toilet and a travel wet bag!

I use a simple homemade diaper balm made from coconut oil and essential oils. It works well to prevent rashes and never stains! Here’s how to make it:

4 oz pure coconut oil (solid form)

20 drops Essential Oil of choice (I use Lavender and Gentle Baby in equal parts)

Melt oil in 4 oz Mason jar, add EO’s (essential oils) refrigerate until solid, label with washi tape & a sharpie (or label of choice!) and store at room temperature. Ready to use anytime!

Tip: this is also great for adding quick moisture to my over washed hands!

To make homemade wipe solution, I looked up a popular recipe and then tweaked it to my preference. I love the recipe I’ve fine tuned but feel free to make it your own by adding a little extra or maybe a little less of something!

Homemade wipe solution recipe:

1 Quart size mason jar

1 Oz Dr. Bronners baby unscented pure castile soap

1 Tsp fractionated coconut oil

10 Drops lavender EO

10 Drops Gentle Baby EO

Mix all ingredients in jar and fill to top with filtered water. Once you have your wipes cut and in your dish of choice just pour the solution over the wipes. Ready for use! Store covered to maintain moisture. I find that the quart jar covers about 48 wipes with the right amount of moisture and maintains moisture until I use them up!
