Thrifty Divas Guide To Staying Healthy

Posted on August 1st, 2014 by Freebie Felicia

Staying Healthy

We exercise, go to the doctor regularly, and take our vitamins. All this is good, but what other things could we be doing to stay healthy?

Cook

Cooking does many things for us. If we choose to eat healthy it gives us a variety. When we learn to cook it gives us a life long valuable skill. One of the most important things cooking does for us, though, is gives us a moment to pamper ourselves. Often we don’t feel like cooking because we are tired and frazzled. In all actuality, taking the time to cook can help us deal with that. It makes us take time to do something nice for ourselves.

It’s Not The Worst Look

There are tools we can use to keep us from getting other people’s illnesses. There is the hygiene mask (it goes over the nose and mouth). There are latex gloves or a non-allergenic equivalent. Yes, you may get some strange looks for wearing them in the good old United States, but the use of these items are a regular thing in other countries. They use them at work and other public settings. It helps others from getting your illness, but could also work in reverse. In a society where we watch shows where people make newspaper fashion designs surely we could come up with a worthy illness prevention design.

Pack

Your purse is your life line when it comes to personal hygiene, and hygiene is the first step to not getting sick. Carry an anti-bacterial lotion or gel and the before mentioned gloves and mask. You never know when you will need these items. If you use items that need to be changed regularly, make sure you have enough for the day. Not changing these items can cause infection and, in some cases, toxic shock.

Don’t Share

I know we were all taught that sharing with our friends was the nice thing to do, but it really does depend on what you are sharing. Don’t share makeup or lip balm. Don’t share utensils. Don’t share anything you put on your hands or face. These items are used in high germ zones. The last thing you want to share with a friend is your germs and let’s be honest, you don’t want your friend’s germs either.


Yummy No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Posted on August 1st, 2014 by Discount Debbie

I always love getting new recipes for yummy, easy and healthy food, don’t you? I’m visiting family right now and just tried out a great new recipe that I know will be a go-to healthy snack for the whole family once we get back home. As long as I have been married, I have been baking something (muffins, cookies, cake…you name it). I bake every week, usually two or three times all year long. I love having healthy baked snacks around. But, in the summer, with the feels-like-105 temperatures we are having in our neck of the woods, turning on that oven sometimes feels like a high price to pay. So, this recipe is great for multiple reasons. I can feel great about my family eating a good for you cookie. It’s so simple to make. AND, in the middle of the heat in the summer, I can make these without having to turn on the oven!!!

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 maple syrup

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice)

Instructions: For this recipe, heat the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa powder until blended. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract to the wet (and now hot) ingredients. In a medium size bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Then, pour the hot mixture over the peanut butter and oats and blend together. Use a spoon to form into balls and place onto waxed paper on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for at least one hour (until firm).

You can also add chia seeds and ground flax into the mix to make it even more nutritious. If you want a grain free option, substitute chia seeds, flax, and shredded or flaked coconut for the oatmeal.

What healthy snack do like to make in the summer?

Becoming a Minimalist

Posted on July 31st, 2014 by Freebie Felicia

minimalist

It’s not easy to let go of our possessions, but in the end we don’t miss them. There are boxes of things we don’t even remember we own tucked away in our closets. The hardest part of becoming a minimalist is getting rid of stuff. It’s usually stuff we haven’t seen in ages or that we have multiples of. Minimalism, however, can help us save money and peace of mind.

No More Stuff

Minimalism isn’t just about getting rid of the clutter. It also entails reducing the amount of stuff you buy or bring into your home. This includes dishes, clothing, and other items we have repeats of. For example, a minimalist may have only enough place settings to feed their family in one meal. This may mean doing the dishes more but it also means far less dishes to do. A minimalist cutting back on clothing may have two or three outfits and one outfit for special occasions. I have even read of some people that make all their outfits look the same, so they don’t even have to fret about what they should wear from day to day.

Digital and Internet Advantages

Getting rid of the clutter around the house can also mean getting rid of CDs, DVDs, and physical books. Often times both online streaming and ebooks are less expensive anyway, but the initial switch may feel like you are spending more to replace what you have. You can offset this expense by selling your physical media online or to used book stores. This can also include switching your magazine subscriptions to digital.

Decorating

Becoming a minimalist doesn’t mean that you must forgo decorating your home. It simply means that it’s done more with the actual items that you live with, like the rug or the couch. Pick your favorite color or an interesting pattern. Use a throw pillow or two on the couch. You can still get the decorating look you want without all the odds and ends.
