Krill Oil Review and Giveaway

I am sure you have heard me talk constantly this year about how my family is really making the effort to improve our health. Both my husband and myself have a poor family history as far as health goes and honestly I really want to break that cycle now while we still can. I have so many goals and dreams for the future and I would like to actually be able to see them through! Recently I was given the opportunity to review a product that many of you may have heard about Krill Oil. Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil is extracted from Krill living deep within the waters surrounding the Antarctic.
Krill are very small, shrimp like crustaceans found in open seas throughout the world. Research from the scientific and medical communities confirms the incredible effects this oil can have in promoting heart and joint health, lowered cholesterol, improved moods and comfort during menstruation. With all the great things I have read about Krill Oil I was very excited to get to reviewing this. Since beginning to take it 3 weeks ago I cannot say that I have seen MASSIVE changes but my joint pain has been less. I hope that as I continue to use it I will notice more of a difference. I know that the Omega-3 contained in krill oil is working inside my body to help reduce my risk of heart problems which is rewarding in itself.

Both parents have had cardiac health issues. I have a vascular health issue (as I have DVT). I make sure I try to take fish oil each day. I aim interested in the anti inflammatory properties of Krill Oil.
I have been working hard to be healthier this year, you and I seem to be so much a like which is why I love your blog. I will check this out, it would be nice to not hurt as much after a normal day of taking care of the kids.

My resolution for this year was to add more healthful ingredients to our meals. Some of the things I've done straight out, like serving a LOT more veggies, others are a little more sneaky, like adding more veggies or even flax or hemp seed to a dish without telling anybody. So far, so good! It's the little things that add up.

Thanks!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
