Ring Around The Rosie



Here are my 3 kiddos in their pj’s singing ring around the rosie. Little Gideon sure thinks it’s funny.  And no, I will not admit how late in the day it was that the kids are still wearing their pj’s and haven’t had their hair brushed :-)  It’s Summer! As a side note if you want to be really grossed out go read here to see what this song was really about!

Spinach Baby Food



Ready to make some spinach baby food?  If you make your own baby food you can save a lot of money!  You might also want to check out Pumpkin Apple Baby Food.

Spinach Baby Food

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Spinach Baby Food

I’m going to show you how to make spinach apple pulp and we’re going to turn it into baby food. Modern homemakers video intro and theme song, helping moms. Ok so I have pulp, check out the video if you didn’t watch it. I made apple spinach juice super easy, before making your baby food please watch spinach apple juice juicing recipes. Super delicious I just made it a second ago, mmmm, anyway, but I’m going to take this pulp and make an almost free baby food.

I’m going to add some applesauce, I have the froth from making the spinach pulp and I have the pulp itself now if you’re not making spinach pulp I meant to say spinach juice and you want to make your baby a strong popeye baby like my baby is. That baby is strong, you gotta watch out he knocked me in the face the other day. It really hurt! Anyway, that’s the danger of making babies so strong.

You can just take spinach and run it through like a vitamix you know a really packed cup of spinach with the applesauce and you’d still have really healthy baby food that’s easy. I’m mixing that together and I’m not even going to measure here. I mean, my baby in all honesty he loves apples and he would eat the pulp even without the applesauce but I want it to be the right consistency to fit through a pouch. So I don’t have to sit there and feed him.

So that is still a little too thick to go through the pouch system, so you can see this is an exact science here, we’re not measuring at all. I should have gotten my whisk. I really like my whisk. Getting closer, you really want it to be almost like a yogurt like a thick, thicker applesauce, we don’t want the spinach in the applesauce. I think that’s gonna do it. I have to grab a baby so we can see how yummy this is.

All we’re gonna do is put a cap on here. I really need to do a review for these, these are awesome! I’ve had them for months now and you can see they’re not as pretty as they were in the beginning but they are money savers! It’s like 2 dollars for one of these things in the store just to buy it with dead cooked food and who knows what in it. And this is half raw. Half applesauce half raw spinach and stuff.

And I’m just going to pack this in here. Now you could use less applesauce if you’re going to feed it to your baby the old fashioned way with a spoon. But I have 3 kids and I try to limit that time as much as possible. And I’m still nursing and that’s a big time commitment right there. I forgot to get a rag to wipe the tracks but we’re just going to go with it. I’ll do a wooh so we filled it up. If you fill it up too high it’s going to squish out but oh yeah, I didn’t fill it too high. Anyway, I have to go get a baby so you can see how much he likes this.

That’s right popeye baby you’re super strong. This made 5 pouches, if you cared, and I recommend, oh I know, I know I know, I recommend that you use them up within a couple days because you know half of this is raw food. It hasn’t been processed to oh, I know , I know you want one. And it’s not just for the babies I had a little friend sneak on the set that wanted one too. And oh no, she wants to eat spinach applesauce oh, you’re a healthy girl too aren’t ya. That’s right.

So, anyway, you know I just think as parents it’s our job to put as much nutrition in these little guys as we can. And my parents did the best that they knew and I’m trying to do the best that I know with the knowledge I get. So, anyway nothing wasted, you can even take out the juicer and take it apart and get all the pulp out of there if you want to get every drop of it. And this is certainly cheaper than paying 2 dollars, you know you can get a jar of applesauce for a dollar that will make several pouches. So save some money, get some health and have fun!

Juice Fast Day 14


juice fast testimonies

The Juice Fast continues!

It’s juice fast 14 and I was almost broken by my toddler’s spaghetti! But I chose run and continue my juice cleanse!

juicing videos

This is day 14 of my Juice fast.

Juice Fast Day 14



VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Juice Fast Day 14

Day 14, I’m going on a Juice Fast. Because I’m sick of looking like this and feeling sick all the time. I want to look like I did before kids. I need to be healthy and alive for these guys. Day 14, I just kind of had a little melt down in the kitchen. I was doing good all day but I made them pasta because it’s easy. And believe it or not this disgusting thing on my baby’s tray, like making that I have like lettuce chopped up with peas and spaghetti sauce and there is just something about that smell I just I had to leave the kitchen.

So then I thought, oh I’ll share my weak moment with everyone. Because you know I’m not the only one having them. But uhhh I really like the Italian smells. But it’s not worth it because I want my healing. I’ll just show off where we are today. Everything, I’ll suck my shirt in here, everything is continuing to get smaller. I still have lots of energy, I got lots done over the weekend. Just keeping going.

I wanted to point out he is still nursing a lot and you can see he’s not any worse for the wear he’s not suffering. I still have a really good milk supply and that was one of my big concerns I was like oh the baby and whatever. Because I’m actually trying to go to 2 years I’ve never done that before I’ve only made it to one so I was like I’m gonna try it.

Ewwww, thanks. Everyone’s trying to feed mommy. All day long! Anyway, so if it get’s to you run from the room. That’s what I just did. Keep juicing.

Homemade Baby Food Peas Pumpkin Applesauce



If you’re trying to save money homemade baby food is a great place to start! This is a super easy recipe and my little guy loves his peas pumpkin applesauce.  If you’re looking for an even easier recipe don’t forget to watch this video it only has 2 ingredients!

Homemade Baby Food Peas Pumpkin Applesauce

Homemade Baby Food Recipe

  • 1 can pumpkin (16 oz) make sure this isn’t pumpkin pie filling, just plain pumpkin!
  • 1 can (2 cups) applesauce
  • 1  .46 oz package dehydrated pea powder

Mix and serve.  Saving money on baby food doesn’t get any easier than this!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Homemade Baby Food Peas Pumpkin Applesauce

Gideon is eating peas, pumpkin, and applesauce and it’s a really fast recipe and keep watching and I’ll show you how. Modern homemakers video intro, helping moms. Gideon, do you love to eat your vegetables? Only when I puree them and hide them that’s right. This is peas, pumpkin and a little bit of applesauce. Can you say yummy? Can you say thank you? There we go thank you.

We’re going to take a can of pumpkin. Make sure it’s not pumpkin pie filling because that’s full of sugar. This is just canned pumpkin. Don’t even have to get everything out because I’m going to dump applesauce into the same can so I don’t mess up a measuring spoon.

I’ve got this one that’s almost empty. So we’re going to measure applesauce. And with your applesauce you want to make sure, it’s ok if you can’t afford organic, I can’t either right now, but you want to make sure that it’s just apples. A lot of applesauce has corn syrup in it so, I think this is mott’s I had a jar that’s almost empty and it was just apples and I think I had a walmart brand like a store brand that was just apples. But, it’s surprising how many of them are just laced with corn syrup.

Watch out for that. Anyway, so I’ll finish filling off this can. If you’re making your own purees and your own applesauce, 1 can is about 2 cups. And then we’re just going to mix it. I like to use a whisk, you don’t have to use a whisk, you can use a spoon, but it makes it really fast to get it blended together.

So up until this point this recipe is exactly the same as the pumpkin applesauce baby food. But I’m going to go ahead and add in, I got these at big lots, and they had organic dehydrated baby food where you just add liquids. And I like to add it to smoothies and stuff to give kind of an extra oomf to the food. And I’m going to add this whole packet in here which is going to give us, I like to have more of a vegetable than fruit ratio going on because the babies already have such a sweet tooth especially with breast milk is very sweet.

Anyway so this is going to be 2 vegetables and one fruit and I just like that you can see it is going to discolor it a little bit but if you have it in the pooh! The pouch you’re not going to see that, you might see it in the pooh hahah! Anyway, just a few more seconds than making the pumpkin applesauce you can see that that now has that much more vegetables in it. And it’s the same thing with that one you can put it in a jar of baby food if you want and just fill those.

I will be wiping off the top here when we get done. I should have used a smaller spoon. Now if you wanted to put this in the freezer I think I probably filled it too far for that, I definitely wouldn’t go past like that point. Because when you put things in the freezer they expand and since I now have a toddler that wouldn’t be enough food so I’d have to use a larger jar.

So I’m just going to put this straight in the fridge, but I’m getting really lazy. I have 3 kids and the time it takes to sit down and feed the baby kind of disrupts from the whole meal time with everyone else. So, I recently got these and I’m so excited, it’s ufill, I’ll try to put a link below and you’re able to just fill them they’re not paying me to say this I actually happen to just love them that much. Anyway, you just fill it up and it acts just like those expensive pouch foods in the store that you shouldn’t be spending your grocery money on but you do, and you end up spending more money on the baby than everyone else!

I don’t know who I’m talking about here, ME. What we’re going to do with these things is I’m going to fill it up right to the middle, you can see the writing on the inside and it’s no biggie if you don’t fill it up perfectly every time. You might have food kind of squish out, you can see the inside there I’m just watching, and I’m going to wipe off with a rag, just like a ziplock,

And, we’ll see if I did it right, whew, had a little bit come out there. No biggie we’ll wipe it off again and let’s go see what the baby thinks. I make sure that he never gets to have the cap because I think it’s a choking hazard, and this is with the peas in there and he loves it. He doesn’t even know that it has more vegetables than the pumpkin applesauce he just ate he still loves it. He’s a good eater. That’s right, and if you watched both videos I totally gave him 2 pouches in a row, don’t judge me! Please subscribe to our youtube channel. You might also like how to cut baby boy hair.

Juice Fast Day 11



Here’s day 11 of my juice fast. Having some problems posting day 10, so I thought I’d just skip posting day 10 and pickup on the next day :-)

Juice Fast Day 11



VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Juice Fast Day 11

Day 11, I’m going on a Juice Fast. Because I’m sick of looking like this and feeling sick all the time. I want to look like I did before kids. I need to be healthy and alive for these guys. Day 11, and big changes in my body. It’s actually not morning, it’s evening we didn’t have time this morning, so.

Yesterday I was so exhausted that I went to bed at like 6 oclock. My husband kept the kids and let me go to bed and it’s like my body just needed sleep for healing and he supported that. Um, I’ve noticed something weird today on my neck I have like these lumps I’m seeing so that’s weird. These little, just in there, so that’s weird I don’t know what that’s all about. Maybe they were obscured by fat before.

Definitely I’ve had like you know I want to quit, I know I can’t quit because it’s so important to get healed. But I wouldn’t lie to anyone and say that this is easy. And if you have anyone who’s being negative and not supporting you just shut that person out.

Just get your support that you need, watch documentaries, hang out with me, whatever but you’ve got to have a support team because this is too stinkin’ hard not to. Because everyone, I was told today “make sure you’re getting your protein” and all this other stuff and it’s just like vegetable have protein in them, and protein in meat’s not even digestible anyway, so it’s like ahhhhh. So, anyway, um just trying to progress through that.

My wonderful sister, who is like my biggest cheerleader just sent me another juicer today. She sent me a breville and we just juiced 2 quarts of carrot juice and cleaned up in 30 minutes. So, going to take my hands off there, I know it wastes a little more than my other juicer, but just to be able to be that fast I now have that option. It’s really exciting.

Very cool. Oh, this is a size 3x. and I’ll stand here it is getting kind of funny. My clothing is the tops especially you can see I can just like gather the material on them. And I was wearing between a 3 and a 4x actually when I started this juice fast. Oddly enough, a lot of my pants I had just stopped wearing so I hadn’t really noticed I was wearing so many sweatpants and I had like 1 pair of jeans I was wearing so I have these I hadn’t worn in awhile, I have a pair of like burgundy pants that are not stretchy at all and I hadn’t worn been wearing those. So I’ve been starting to wear those pants again. So that’s pretty exciting.

No need to buy anything new yet, I still have other stuff. But I’m going to keep going. And I hope you consider starting if you have health problems or weight problems or whatever.

Juice Fast Day 9


joquena lomelino

Here’s your juice fast encouragement for the day.

It’s juice fast day 9 and I can’t believe how much energy I have! I’m getting so much more accomplished than I was before I started this juice cleanse.

I’m not stopping :-)

Juice Fast Day 9



VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Juice Fast Day 9

Day 9, I’m going on a Juice Fast. Because I’m sick of looking like this and feeling sick all the time. I want to look like I did before kids. I need to be healthy and alive for these guys. Day, 1 finger down, 9, and I got so much stuff done yesterday. Although I have to admit I’m really sensitive to other people’s moods and everyone else was whiny and whatever and irritable. So I just kind of lost it at a certain point but I started out really positive.

Anyway, so I started out positive again today. Hopefully no one brings me down. My 8 year old is definitely trying to get it she’s like look mommy’s trying to be nice she’s telling the 6 year old so hopefully they listen to that. Just wanted to update I’m still nursing my 1 and a half year old. I’m trying to go to 2 years, I’ve never done that before.

But I figured, oh if the Juice fast kills my milk supply that’s fine because he’s over a year. And that’s all I went with the girls but not only has it not decreased it’s like the baby he just wants to nurse longer. I think it tastes better he’s just like whooo. He just wants more, sorry TMI, for probably a lot of people, but if you’re a mommy who’s nursing and you’re concerned about it you know it’s ok to take care of yourself. Just make sure you’re getting enough juice for you and the baby. Just like you would eat enough for you and the baby.

You know, I feel like I’m giving him better nutrients because I’m not having pasta and all this other stuff. It’s just the raw juice. Doing all that, let’s see here I did laundry all morning and played with the fussy teething baby. I was like what’s wrong with you and then I saw this giant tooth coming through the side and I went yeah, that’d bother me too.

I got all my juicing done. I was like a juicing machine. Remember my husband drinks a lot of juice so I got it all done by 3 instead of like 8 o’clock at night. So I was just like wow and I was able to take the kids to the park and then we went to goodwill and the library and I did like all this stuff that I would never do in 1 day. I got a video edited. I was just like who am I. So I just feel like even though like my body hasn’t transformed totally and I’m not done, I’m nowhere near the end but things are getting better. Things are getting easier. Just being able to juice without my husband’s help and get that all done yesterday, that was huge.

I have an entire shelf in the fridge that is all juice and we have a big fridge. So, that’s exciting. Anyway, keeping it up, if you’re watching this and you’re like oh I’ve thought about maybe being healthier plunge in cold turkey, do it and you’ll feel the difference.

I hear I’m supposed to call this Juice FEASTING, not fasting :-)

Juice Fast Day 7



VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – Juice Fast day 7

Day 7, I’m going on a Juice Fast. Because I’m sick of looking like this and feeling sick all the time. I want to look like I did before kids. I need to be healthy and alive for these guys. Day 7, was in the kitchen all day yesterday juicing, this is salsa juice I made this when we first started drinking juice and love it, it’s like pico de gallo. I’ve been putting it in these organic lemonade containers we had leftover.

And I don’t know it just makes it seem fancier to me. I just started yesterday in a really positive place and then I guess my husband was like withholding juice from himself or something and he was all neuh and I was all uhhh and it kind of blew up into something. So it was a cranky day after all. But, we got it back together.

We sat down and had some couch time and I said when you’re hungry you drink the juice and I took the laptop into the kitchen because I was in there all day. But basically I was watching it out of the back of my head so that’s not any fun. My husband agreed to let me order the Kindle Fire thingy which I can mount right in front on the cabinet above where I juice. So I can watch movies and documentaries because I’m spending like all day in the kitchen because I’m not just juicing for myself I’m juicing for him and he drinks like 3 times as much juice as I do.

I say that in love sweetie. And I also have to do constant meal prep for my 3 children. So, I think that’s one of the hardest things is the mom factor that I could just go buy them TV dinners, yeah, I just got a yay from a kid out of that, but those are garbage and I don’t want to feed that to my kids. And we’re already vegetarians and a few months ago we went totally vegan again which I was when I actually married my husband.

But everyone gave me crap when I was pregnant about not getting protein and whatever, so I started eating cheese, which really was really healthy because cheese meant “cheesecake” and wendy’s frosties when I started having dairy. Not at all healthy. Anyway, so we’ve gone back to that so I have to basically make everything they eat from scratch.

But I felt really good about the stuff I was making them. I was trying to make the effort to make most of their plates raw and then have a little bit of cooked on there. You know, giving myself a chance to try to do some easy things like slap some canned veggies on their plate too, just because it’s already in my pantry. And it was done, but yeah, I spent the entire day in the kitchen.

I don’t think if you’re doing the juice fast just for yourself that would be the case. I also have a Greenstar, which is amazing, it gets so much out of the greens. Like I do cilantro and like nothing comes out of the chute unless I do multiple heads of it. So that’s great, but it does take a long time. So that’s going to give me some guns here.

What else, just starting the day again. It’s going to be my first day, my husband just got a new job and today he’s going on a field trip with my daughter so it’s going to be just me and the baby today so it’s really my first day, except for the day where I went and helped my sister where I’ve been just alone. So I have to do all the juicing by myself. My husband’s been helping me clean and stuff anyway, hoping the energy is there, because otherwise he’s going to be juicing at 6 at night.

Keep juicing, get started juicing, change your life. You might also like how to make carrot juice. Please subscribe to our youtube channel. I’m not a doctor. This is just my juicing journey. You should always consult with a DR before making any radical changes to your health or diet.
