As I mentioned in my last post, I received a lot of mail and packages in the almost 3 weeks we were away in Aruba.
Including many magazines and catalogs. Here are just a few.
I actually don’t subscribe to any of these. They seriously just show up. Not kidding. Parenting magazines are notorious for this. You get pregnant and you get put on magazine lists, forever. At least for me that’s how it was.
I wear $16.99 Target sports bras and see my answer under U about my underwear if you care. Not sure why you would care about underwear or why I even answered that question, but I did.
In the mail, I received a couple sample packets of Amazing Grass ORAC Green Superfood Powder in packets.
ORAC is the body’s ability to neutralize free radicals and one small packed of this product is a powerhouse of a free radical neutralizer.
So is a plant-based diet and eating the rainbow but sometimes some supplements or powders are like “insurance” if we’re not getting what is optimal via food sources. I prefer food to supplements overall but it’s fun to try new things.
I’d like to try a packet of this in a Purple Rain Smoothie
Or maybe in a Peach Banana Colada Smoothie
I also received a large container of Tropical Traditions Powdered Dishwasher Detergent with enzymes.
After one load of dishes, so far so good. The Tropical Traditions powdered dish detergent worked beautifully.
The powdered dish detergent I just received is ultra-concentrated, contains no chlorine, phosphates, fillers or fragrances., and is therefore much more environmentally friendly than most mainstream dishwasher detergents.
Speaking of chores, thank for sharing what Chores you can’t stand in my last post, Chores & Goodies.
And for letting me know if there’s any fun goodies you’ve gotten lately!
1. Best thing you’ve eaten or done so far this weekend?
Waking up and knowing I don’t have 5 loads of laundry to do before noon was a nice feeling.
And I’m about to go rock a good workout. I can feel it.
2. Do you use powder dishwasher detergent or laundry detergent?
I tend to buy almost exclusively “pellets” or “gel packs” for the former, and 100% of the time I use liquid in my washing machine.
I know you can use powdered laundry detergents in front loaders if you dissolve it first in water and even though powder is much cheaper than liquid, that’s one of those cost-saving measures I just don’t take.
That goes true for all cleaning products for me and really, with all products, in general: They can be organic, free from this, fortified with this or that, but they have to work, as previously discussed.
if the product doesn’t work or doesn’t live up to my expectations and I have to re-do chores for a second time around, I am not a happy camper but so far so good with the TT products.
3. Fave protein powder or supplement powder?
I am not a big protein powder girl, but I’d say my PP of choice is brown rice Chocolate Sun Warrior when I use it.
And Amazing Grass makes great “flavored” powders like Berry and Orange Dreamsicle, which are different than protein powders, of course, and seem more focused on other nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.
I’m about to go drink a vanilla iced coffee
And go outside and enjoy the San Diego pretty weather we’re having today with a run.
