Hi Judee,
A lot of us have misconceptions about gluten free eating.I am so glad you pointed out that if we shop the gluten free section of the store, gluten free packaged foods may be highly caloric, high in sugar and starch and home-baked goods could be healthier, but equally caloric. Proper meal and snack planning and exercise are key to remaining healthy and fit on a gluten free diet so thank you so much for sharing this valuable post with us at the
Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop!

Hi Deb,
Thanks so much for hosting this great blog hop every week. Love reading the great tips and info I have shared this week “5 Tips for a True Green Lawn & Healthy Lifestyle Style. Have a healthy happy week. Marla

Hi Marla,
This is such an important post! I grew up in a home with large back and front lawns which my father took great pride in caring for. Unfortunately, he used a lot of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides to care for it. Of course, at that time he was unaware of the dangers associated with conventional lawn care products. Years later, he is suffering from a severe neurological disease and I often wonder if long term exposure to these lawn and garden products harmed his health. Thank you for enlightening us to the importance of green lawn care at the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop!

I love to bike and feel the wind in my face and the sun on my skin so the idea of being able to convert my bike to an ebike is very appealing. I am delighted to know that the many of the kits are designed for absolute beginners so that even I could convert my bicycle into an electric bike.I am going to explore this further.
