At Simple Organic: Using Houseplants to Reduce Toxins and Grow Fresh Air
This week you can find me over at Simple Organic, where I serve as a regular contributing writer. I’m talking about how to purify the toxins in the air in our homes, by using regular houseplants! Here’s a snippet from the post:
Not only vital to our health, but something that we don’t tend to think about. It’s easy to forget about the quality of the air that we take in, just as easy as it is to forget that we are effortlessly breathing in and out, in and out, every single moment.

Just so you know, I had intended to get the second part of the Real Food Makeover for the Anderson family up today. Much as I love writing this series of posts, it is incredibly time consuming for me to write them.
Though I had hoped to complete the makeovers for all 4 families in 4 weeks, it looks like I will have to stretch it out just a little bit longer (more like 5 or 6 weeks), so that I don’t drive myself or my family crazy. And I value my sanity as much as my husband values having a happy and relaxed wife (you know, as opposed to a crazy one). So thanks for your patience if I get them up just a little bit more slowly!
Take longer if you need to! No one puts more pressure on you than yourself. 🙂
