So many times I have had to throw out fruits and veggies that I never got to eat and what a waste of money that became. Well I came up with the perfect solution! The ones I don’t get to eat I now simply juice or you can put them in a bullet and then I simply pour the liquid into ice cube trays and freeze them. After I freeze them I place them into a freezer container and use them as needed. I like to use these power packed gems in my smoothies and my shakes. Ice cubes for me make them thicker so I always use them. This cuts down the cost of me having to buy organic additives like protein powder for my shakes and smoothies. It also does away with the waste! So I’m saving money while still eating organic. You’ve just gotta try this!

Check back with me every Tuesday to get the latest deals and freebies on the web…my way to help you all stay with the natural and organic thing:)
One thing I can say is that other then my love for my grannie, I also have a love for the natural remedies she taught me growing up. Yes, my grannie had been doing the natural organic thing all along. Matter of fact believe it or not, thats what all the older generations did. As time moved on we used our so called new technology to make better foods, cures, etc. My grannie always said its not so. She said she refused to change to such things. I now understand her on this. Anywho I figured since Summer is now in full swing, our youngins will for sure be running into the most dreaded thing of Summer…poison ivy and the likes. Not to mention things like bee stings! So how do you treat these as natural and homeopathic as much as possible? Can it even be done?
First let me say yes it can. I am gonna share with you something from days gone by. Its called a poultice. What is a poultice you may ask? Poultices are made of fresh or dried plant material. Here is a simple example of a poultice that would have been used by your grandmother: A plantain leaf poultice, they would just chew up a bit of the leaf and then place the pulpy mass on the rash or affected area. They would then make sure to discard the old and replace it with a new one every once in a while. The poultice would pull the toxins out and you don’t want that to lay against your skin once its full of toxins which would irritate the skin. If you have something against chewing a weed put some of your saliva on the bite then crush and roll the leaves in your hands and apply.
So where do you get plantain leaves at? Believe it or not they are probably right under your feet! It is a weed that grows everywhere, and most combat it out in their yards and gardens cause it grows in abundance. I will attach a photo so you will be able to identify it. If you decide to use this to treat rashes, bug bites, etc just make sure to pick it from an area that hasn’t been sprayed with any type of pesticide. Plantain is also good at drawing out splinters. Place some over the splinter and cover with a bandaid and in a short time you will see the splinter laying on the skin service. This is by far one of the best puller plants I know of. Ever used it? let me know in the comments!
