I decided to write a quick post today to share two time-sensitive matters that you should take advantage of while you can.
I've told you before that I have a problem with waiting too long to get deals, and then kicking myself when they are over.
If my husband had a dollar for every time I have said to him, “I can't believe I missed that deal on whatever-the-thing-was-that-I-was-planning-on-getting-that-finally-went-on-sale,” he'd be–well, I don't know how much money he'd have.
Let's just say he would like me to make up my mind sooner.
Now there's nothing wrong with waiting and making sure you aren't buying something you don't need.
And I'm not advocating impulse buying.
But I am saying that it is also true that sometimes “When You Snooze–You Lose.”
And in this case, you can't snooze because you will miss two opportunities.
The first is….
A great Whole Foods Slow Cooker Cookbook on Sale for only $1!
(NOTE: I am an affiliate for Crock On and am a rep for Miessence. If you buy the book I make a commission which doesn't increase your price, but helps me to keep blogging – thanks!) I make nothing from your participation in the seminar.
Crock On by Stacy Myers
Just $1 (regularly $5)–now through June 1
Use Coupon Code SMCis3
Yes, that's right. I said $1.
My slow cooker is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen because I am busy and love having dinner going without needing to think about it at 4 or 5 when things aren't always going that well in our home :-). You know, the afternoon crabby, tired thing that happens.
For just $1, here is what you get.
- 40 original slow cooker recipes–soups, desserts, and more
- photos of every recipe (It really bothers me when there are no photos in a cookbook. You too?)
- easy to follow instructions
- reviews for each recipe by others who tested them
I got Crock On awhile ago. (Great name, huh?)
I honestly didn't know if it would work for us since Stacy loves dairy. And my oldest is deathly allergic to dairy.
When I say “loves,” I mean LOVES. She even has a warning written in her book about not substituting dairy. Of course, she's being tongue-in-cheek (Stacy's a card–you'll see that throughout the book.)
There are recipe without dairy, but a lot of them have it so I was hesitant.
And of course, I could make one meal for all of us with dairy and another meal for my son, but I am way-too-busy already, so that kind of thing doesn't happen much.
Anyway, I asked Stacy for a book to review and tried some recipes and–
We loved them all.
– The Baked Beans were a real favorite.
– The Taco Chili was great. (We added extra spices, but that's kind of typical for us.)
– I made the Maple Sesame Chicken sugar free and my family gobbled it up.
– And the Cheeseburger Pie is one that my kids ask for regularly. I made it without the cheese and then added regular cheese on top of the plates of those who could have cheese, and put a homemade dairy-free cheese on top of my oldest's.
I'm looking forward to trying the Beef with Broccoli, Buffalo Joes, and Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake. Umm–that one is going to take some improvising but I love trying to make recipes work for us. Especially ones that have Peanut Butter and Chocolate in them. Ahem.
Anyway, you should definitely grab this deal while it is here.

Free Seminar with Probiotic and Superfoods Expert
The other thing I don't want you to miss is the FREE Seminar tonight with Probiotic and Superfoods Expert, Czerral.
**And even if you're not free tonight, don't click away. If you sign up, you get a recording emailed to you after the call, plus you will get to enter a giveaway for free high-quality probiotics.**
I am so pleased to find that I can tolerate fermented foods, after thinking I couldn't for years.
After talking with Czerral, I decided to do what he recommended, and started on a trial “flooding my gut” course with a strong liquid fermented food probiotic, and found that not only can I tolerate fermented foods, but it seems that my gut NEEDED them.
I think for years I was mistaking die off for an allergic reaction, and it took his knowledge to help me try another angle.
Czerral is the maker of the probiotics that I am taking, but the talk tonight isn't just about his products.
The Call Will Be All About Probiotics:
– What probiotics are
– What they do
– Who needs them
– What kinds work and what kinds don't
– When you can take them (pregnant? breastfeeding? young? old? immune compromised?)
– and much much more
There will be an interview period followed by a Q&A for as long as possible to get as many questions answered as we can.
Trust me–you don't want to miss this.
Hope to see you there!
And enjoy the cookbook if you get it!
