Happy weekend, everyone!
And Happy Valentine’s Day.
I know…it was 2 days ago.
But we had a really icky Valentine’s.
Hubby wanted to deliver my bulk raw almond order boxes to the post office and fix our “been leaking for a long time” kitchen sink.
One of the biggest boxes had flax seeds leak all over it and the kitchen sink didn’t get fixed.
I think I was detoxing heavy metals so I didn’t feel great and didn’t get any special treats made.
Last night we ended up making Homemade Jello in little heart shapes, which turned out pretty nicely and I also am taking a run at Sugar Free Candied Orange Peel.
I’ll let you know how it turns out .
Anyway, enough about us. Here we go with the savings for you!
Free Ebooks Galore
Woo hoo! I love Saturdays because I get to share a TON of these great free ebooks. I really try to skim through these to make sure they are whole foodie friendly and not icky-thrown together recipes.
And maybe one of these days I’ll have a real ebook of my own :)
Remember-these can become “un free” at anytime, so please download them asap.
And make your wallet happy by not buying a Kindle if you don’t have one. Just download Kindle for PC or Mac at Amazon and read on your computer. Well, I guess you could be like my friend who went to a pawn shop and bought her Nook there. Wow. What savings.
Something makes me not really want to go into a pawn shop….but I might reconsider.

Healthy Ziploc Snacks
I do not use ziploc bags. They really bug me. I use the bags in this post on storing beans instead.
But mainly I use food containers I can wash out and reuse. But often I’ll reuse my bags if they aren’t too gross.
Some of these snacks need a little whole-foodification but overall there are some really nice ideas in here!

Many of these recipes lean on cans of stuff like spaghetti sauce, etc., but some are great as is. If you’re good at substituting, then this is a good book for you.
