Wowee are the weeks just flying by. We finally got over the flu–well, sort of. The “after effects” of this one seem to last a loooong time and my oldest ended up with severe ear pain yesterday.
I tried numerous natural remedies and will be sharing in the near future how we helped him make it through the night…you'll want to hear this for sure :).
We had a “near miss” with antibiotics a few years ago with my youngest. Bought the stuff and everything, but thankfully we didn't need to use it. You can read more at How We Avoided the Pink Stuff. I recommend avoiding the pink stuff whenever you can. Of course, consult with your doctor. But I DON'T like antibiotic overuse. They contribute for sure to gut dysbiosis. You can read more about Candida, Gut Health and My Sugar-Free Life to learn more.
Anyway, there are some great deals available this week and one great Bundle Deal that starts Monday morning at 8 a.m. EST.

10% off Great Almonds
Just Almonds is one of my great sponsors. Their almonds are wonderful and they are nice folks to boot. Their non pareil variety are much sweeter than most any other almonds we have ever tried. Typically my Homemade Almond Butter disappears pretty quickly, but when it's made with these almonds, it disappears even faster :).
These almonds are steam pasteurized. Did you know that most almonds in the US are pasteurized with engine fuel?
Read more about that in my post, Is There Engine Fuel on Your Almonds? Yuck. While you're reading that post, you might want to tell the almond board what you think about Engine Fuel on almonds.
Get 10% off these superb almonds with code WNM.
10% off Postpartum, Period, and Incontinence Pads –
and it's for a GREAT cause
Just a few days left to get 10% off all purchases at Peepods (through March 20 with code wholenewmom). These products are a great way to help the environment, save money and do a little “prepping”. Just think–if and when the economy tanks, you won't need to go to the store to get feminine products because you'll have a pretty “permanent” washable stash. (I used to work in the financial sector and believe me–things don't look good folks.)
Look at these beautiful cloth pads. A lot nicer than those ickly plastic-encased pads w/ sticky glue on them, eh?
I'll be sharing more about this later, but when you buy a set, Amber donates one set a hospital in Ethiopia that treats ladies with injuries related to poor obstetric care. She has a big heart to help these ladies. You can help too, when you buy from her.
You can read my review of Peepods here.
Care for the environment.
Help Ethiopian women.
All this with Peepods.
