Vaxxed : From Cover Up to Catastrophe

When Vaxxed was first released in Los Angeles I saw it as soon as I could.

Why? Because I am a parent of vaccine injured children.

My children are meant to be 1 in a Million or so the CDC and the media would lead you to believe.

Whether you are a parent or single I implore you to go and see this movie.

There are over 200 vaccines in the development pipeline.  As a consumer, you need to know about how the CDC does vaccine studies.  States are removing Personal Belief and Religious Exemptions to attend school.  Colleges are requiring vaccines to attend both undergraduate and post graduate study.  The Adult vaccine schedule is being updated and there are proposals to make it mandatory.

To find a local theater visit the Vaxxed The Movie website.

Feel free to leave a review below in the comments once you’ve seen the movie.

Gluten Free Groceries

Where Do I Shop For Food?

Gluten Free Groceries

A friend and I got chatting the other day and she was really interested in where to buy healthier foods.  You see, she’d seen many of the posts that I share on Facebook about genetically modified foods and wanted to know what we eat and where do I buy it.

I have to be honest that as each of the four people in our family have different dietary needs and that we shop at a lot of stores.  One family member is gluten and dairy free and we are trying to avoid as many chemicals as possible on a budget.  The new NON GMO Project verified logo can now be found on many products and is a great way to select healthier items when shopping.

I have been putting off writing this list for a while, as it’s constantly changing as stores add and remove products.

Cinnamon sugar cookies

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies – Gluten and Dairy Free

I have been experimenting with this recipe from the Bruce Fife cookbook, Cooking with Coconut Flour for a while and finally mastered

These delicious cookies contain no gluten or dairy.

4 egg

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter melted (we use Earth Balance – Soy Free)

3/4 cup sifted coconut flour

Combine eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and butter and mix well.

Stir in coconut flour.  Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

Combine 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar on plate.

Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and roll in cinnamon mixture, coating thoroughly.

Place on cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart; flatten ball to diameter of about 2 inches.

Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

I have found I need to pack the coconut flour before sifting or my dough is too sticky/moist.

I also end up using a lot more sugar and cinnamon to coat the cookies.

Cooking for 15 minutes will tend to produce a softer cookie.  Cooking for an additional few minutes will produce a golden brown cookie that is a little crisp.

Make in bulk and store in the freezer, and defrost as needed.

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Halloween Sugar Cookies – Gluten and Dairy Free

Last Halloween I wanted to make my sons experience a positive one.  It was his first Halloween without Gluten and Dairy and I new my choc-aholic would find it tough.

After much searching on the internet I found a sugar cookie recipe that I liked.   The recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free Sugar Cookie Recipe from Karen at Only Sometimes Clever.

This sugar cookie recipe is extremely versatile, in that the dough and the cookies freeze well and it’s simple to substitute different flours.  Handling of the dough once the cookies are cut is super easy, even for small hands.

I made these black cats and pumpkins to take to his class party and all the kids loved them.  I don’t think they even noticed they were gluten and dairy free.

I’m planning on making some more for this Halloween.  Does anyone have any tips for decorating?

Dream Catcher Weighted Blanket

I got our son a weighted blanket a little over a year ago.

When I was researching the different options I knew I wanted a product that was both machine washable and could go in the dryer. I also wanted a blanket that my son would like touching his skin.

He was so happy when he got to custom pick the fabrics for his blanket.

I decided on a toddler size 36 * 52 blanket in custom in a dinosaur fabric from Dream Catcher Weighted Blanket. Our blanket is used every night to help our son fall asleep and stay asleep. He also uses it during the day if he’s having trouble calming down or watching TV.

We take his blanket with us whenever we travel including on plane flights.  It comes to the orthodontist office or in the car on long road trips.  It is well made with the weight evenly distributed and constructed of cotton.

Weighted blankets are great for people with Fibromyalgia, Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, ADHD and many other conditions. To see a full list of conditions and benefits of weighted blankets visit the Dream Catcher website.

Our son has grown quite a bit in the past year and loves the weight of his blanket so we are looking at getting him a new blanket. We just need to decided if we keep our current blanket or use the Dream Catcher Blanket Exchange Program.

Do you or someone you love use a weighted blanket?
