Getting my weekday lunches ready on a Sunday night

Organic, gluten-free, non-gmo, soy free, whole grain and vegan crackers.Top photo homemade butternut squash soup.

Lately the Eco-cowgirl has been preparing healthy, organic, vegan lunches for me to bring to work.

She says this butternut squash soup needs to be heated up on the stove and not with the microwave.

The ingredients in the soup are: butternut squash, green bell pepper, spinach, salt, pepper, cilantro...

She brought the soups over when I wasn't home, while we were talking on the phone she could hear the microwave going off.  That wasn't a sound she wanted to hear. We will have to ask her specifically why and use that in a future post.

The Determined Yager-Bischoff Women speak about toxins on your skin and in our water

Rebecca and I gave a talk to the Lester River Chapter of the AARP. We talked about the toxins in the "beauty" products and foods. If you look closely on the counter behind us you can see that our hosts got out two china cups for us after they heard that Naomi will chose not to have coffee rather than use a Styrofoam cup. Mary Wright is in between Rebecca and Naomi.

Did you know that the FDA does NOT regulate the cosmetic industry, yet the skin is the largest organ of the human body and we absorb the ingredients from shampoos, soaps and and perfume into our blood. Now, all humans on every continent have something in their bloodstreams that our ancestors did not...toxins. 

I'm holding Ellen Sandbeck's "Organic Housekeeping," and Rebecca is holding "NO MORE DIRTY LOOKS: The Truth About Your Beauty Products and the Ultimate Guide to Safe and Clean Cosmetics" by journalists Siobhan O’Connor and Alexandra Spunt, we spoke about the harmful ingredients in skin care products and home cleaning products. — at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, Duluth MN.
