Five things that are ridiculously easy to make, will you save you money, and are just better for you and your family!


You just need two ingredients:


2 Tablespoons Corn Starch or Arrow Root Powder and 1 Tablespoon Beet Root Powder (You can find this ingredient at any natural food store).   You can adjust more or less to create the color you want.  Sometimes, I add a little cocoa powder to the mix to add a deeper color.  Easy as that!  Now brush some on your cheeks and revel in the fact that you have blush made for well under department store prices and that best part?  You know what is in your make up and all the ingredients are things you can ingest!



Making a window cleaning solution is just as easy as making your own blush.  Once again you only need two ingredients:


Water and Avon Bubble Bath!  That’s it!  Fill a spray bottle with warm water and pour in 1 capful of bubble bath.  Swirl around to mix and it is ready to use!  This will save you so much money!


Have you ever read the ingredients in hot chocolate?!  Making your own hot chocolate mix is as easy as 1, 2, 3!  This one is a little more complicated and will require three whole ingredients.


You will mix 2 cups of dry milk powder, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, and 1/3 cup sugar.  Mix them all together and store in a cute container! The best part about this recipe is you can add more or less of anything.  Want it to be sweeter? Add more sugar.  Need more chocolate?  Add some more!  This is my go to recipe when I am trying really hard to be healthy during the week but need a chocolate fix.


Now hear me out… This is so simple and SO healthy.  All you need are three things.


A brown paper bag, salt, and popcorn kernels.  Pour ¼ cup popcorn kernals into the brown paper bag.  Fold the top down and put it the microwave for 1 ½ to 2 minutes or until all the popping stops.  Take it out and sprinkle salt on it.  In just minutes you have a healthy whole grain snack with no added or artificial ingredients.  You could even get creative and try different flavors/seasonings.  Just think about all the money you are saving too!  You are making a delicious snack for literally just pennies.


When I make a batch of pancakes I always double it and freeze the leftover pancakes.  Then throughout the week I pull out baggies, either microwave them or toast them, and enjoy!


I put my favorite toppings on and enjoy a healthy breakfast.
