Clean Food Challenge

Remember back in January when I wrote a post about my resolutions for 2012? No? Ok, I'll remember for you. Well, one of my resolutions was to eat more interesting food. When my good friend, and crunchy-twin (its seriously scary how much we have in common), Jayne at the naptown organizer organized a clean food challenge, I didn't hesitate to join up. I need any chance I can get to spice things up try some new food.

The clean food challenge is a challenge to eat real food for one week and blog about your experience. This means eating only foods made of ingredients you recognize and understand. So, no Xanthan Gum, Niacinamide, or Dextrose (yes - these are three real ingredients from a snack which shall remain nameless that I often enjoy). Just good fresh clean food. 

This will certainly be a challenge for me. You may remember that another one of my resolutions for the year was to gain some weight. Well, that is still very much an issue for me and snacks are important sources of calories. I'm going to play it by ear and stick to as clean as possible, which may just require me to make some more of my own treats! 

The challenge starts this Thursday, March 1 and lasts one week. If you (leave your thoughts in the comments on my posts or on the other participating blogs), or your blog, are interested in joining, head over to the naptown organizer! Should be a very interesting time and I look forward to sharing my experience with all of you.

My husband was diagnosed with Celiac disease in '09 and ever since then, we've had no choice but to dissect labels and be familiar with every. single. ingredient. in fear that it could harm him in some way. It's been interesting, but I think I can feel a difference in eating real, clean foods rather than processed junk. Good luck!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
