Earlier this week I did a post on ways to find out where your food comes from and a way to track it from the codes on your packaging. But what about where it comes from as far back as the farm? I'll admit it - I'm a city girl, I know there are farms out there but I don't usually visit them.
Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Savers Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
Since 2009 Michigan Farms have opened their doors to over 40,000 children and adults and not only fed them, but provided them with knowledge of where their food is coming from.
Breakfast on the farm events are free and are happening throughout Michigan at five farms from June through September. You can attend for free and learn about the farming
We all see the news stories and the posts on facebook about what chemicals are being dumped into the food we eat daily. It's out there, and I can't say it's all true or not, because I honestly don't know. However I am a big supporter of know what is in the food you're eating, as well as where it comes from. The only way to make the best decision for you is to know how to find the information right? We eat mostly clean in our house due to allergies, but if you eat boxed food mostly and it works for you that's awesome.
If you've read my blog over the last couple of years you may have noticed I don't generally post "hot button" issues. I tend to keep items that will alienate readers off my blog, we all have certain beliefs and let's be frank - we never will agree. My beliefs and stance on a lot of things will not mesh with my readers, we're all individual and I respect my readers enough to appreciate that about them.

Let me start off the post with all the basic stuff: I'm not a doctor, I don't play one on TV. I am also not a nutritionist, nor ever claim to be one. I am however gluten free, and happily. I eat quite well, we eat mostly clean in our house - and yes - the whole house is gluten free (ok let's give it a 95% gluten free rating! My boyfriend Jason has his snacks).
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, although when you go into any store you will have difficulty finding fashionable clothes over a size 10. Sure, you can go to the specialty stores and find an okay selection of clothes, but they are expensive and way out of my budget.
I was very excited to see a new website out there with plenty of options for women of all sizes. AbbeyPost is a site that not only sells plus size women's clothing, but also accessories! It doesn't matter what you're looking for from swim

Millions of Americans are heading to beaches and warm-weather getaways this weekend to celebrate Memorial Day, seeking to dive toes deep into the sand as they celebrate the unofficial start of summer! However, Memorial Day Weekend is not always so bright. This weekend tends to be peoples' initial contact with the sun since last season, hence the reason why so many get sunburned. To commence the highly anticipated Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 24, 2013, has been declared as "Don't Fry Day," by the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, as an effort to encourage sun safety awareness.
