4th of July Applesauce Pouch Printable

Hey, all…so I LOVE the 4th of July! There’s just something so nice about celebrating our freedom, celebrating with friends and family, and obviously fireworks. I love creating some type of Pinterest-inspired dish for each holiday but, those festive dishes aren’t always kid friendly….or healthy! So, I decided to create a quick, simple printable for your 4th of July celebrations!

Fight, Focus, & Renew

It’s no secret here, I am a HUGE fan of organic apple cider vinegar. Let me rephrase that, I am HUGE fan of the benefits…the taste, that will grow on you!

Organic ACV has been a part of daily routine for almost ten years now. I started my ACV regimen by taking 2 tablespoons each morning. While I stick with that routine a majority of the time, I have found some ways to make my ACV regimen a little more enjoyable, effective, and taste better.

If you’re new here, check out my post on White House Foods DETOX drink. This is my monthly detox drink which is made with Organic ACV with mother. I drink one bottle of Detox for 7 days each month. You can read more here!

Onto these NEW drinks… FIGHT, FOCUS, & RENEW!

These drinks are all made with organic apple cider vinegar with mother, are ready to drink (although I prefer to refrigerate,) and taste delicious! These drinks are NOT a substitute for my monthly Detox but I do like to trade them out for my daily dose of ACV.

Here’s a little description of each flavor:

 

Fight

  • FIGHT: orange, ginger, and turmeric
    • ingredients known to help boost the immune system.

 

 

 

  • FOCUS: blueberry, green tea, and ginsengFocus
    • ingredients known to help relax your mind and soul.

 

 

 

 

  • RENEW: lime, grape, and mintRenew
    • ingredients known to help rejuvenate your mind and body.

 

 

I love that these drinks were curated with purposeful ingredients!

 

You can find all of these drinks in Wal-Mart, White House Foods Online, or here on Amazon.

Comment below and let me know if you try and which one is your favorite!

 

As always, thanks for reading!

It’s a simple, 7 day regimen that rids my body of toxins, aides healthy digestion, and reduces bloat. I love that I can do this DETOX while maintaining a my normal diet and exercise routine.

Bright and Beautiful Easter Egg Dying with White Distilled Vinegar and Cool Whip

Want in on the secret to getting the brightest and most beautiful coloring on your Easter Eggs? Cool Whip + White House Foods White Distilled Vinegar!

I am obsessed with this technique. It’s simple, somewhat clean, and creates BEAUTIFUL eggs!

Ingredients:
Supplies:
  • Paper Towels
  • Tin/Foil Pan
  • Large Bowl
  • Small Cups
  • Spoons
Directions:
  1. Prepare eggs. Pour White House® White Distilled Vinegar into a bowl. Submerge the hard-boiled eggs into the vinegar. Let the eggs soak for 2 minutes. Removes the eggs and dry with paper towels.
  2. In small cups, mix a little bit of each color of gel coloring with a few drops of vinegar.
  3. Spread the cool whip into your tin pan.
  4. Drip food coloring-vinegar mixture over the whipped cream in small drops. Be sure to space the colors apart.
  5. With the end of a spoon, swirl the colors into the cool whip. Be sure not to completely mix the colors.
  6. Roll your eggs in the mixture. Use your spoons to push them through the colored cream. Make sure each egg does one complete rotation and is covered in colored cream. Do not over rotate your eggs through the mixture, too many colors mixed = brown. Brown isn’t very Eastery!
  7. Keep the eggs in the mixture for 30 minutes MAX!
  8. Wipe the cream off the eggs with a paper towel. If too messy, run under cold water.
  9. Voila! You have some beautiful eggs! (Pictures of the steps below!)

If you try this method, take pics and tag me on social @coldcoffeegrind or #coldcoffeegrind ! I would love to see!

Chemical Free Cleaning Hack: For the Bathroom & Laundry

I recently made the switch to using all chemical-free, non-toxic cleaners. Check out the full video for some extremely easy and low budget ways to clean your sink, bathtub and shower, and an easy chemical-free fabric softener.

All cleaners use White House Foods® White Distilled Vinegar and items that can easily be found in your pantry. I also love substituting the White House Foods® Scented Cleaning Vinegar for regular White Distilled Vinegar, but both work for ALL of the mixtures used in the video and listed  below! I hope you guys enjoy this video! All cleaning mixtures and instructions are listed below!

 

Sink Bowl Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with White Distilled Vinegar, spray sink bowl thoroughly with vinegar, then sprinkle baking soda on top. Let the baking soda sit and vinegar sit for 30 minutes. Use warm water and a sponge to scrub and rinse sink bowl.

Drain Cleaner: Pour 2 tablespoons of White Distilled Vinegar down the drain and let sit overnight. Then in the morning, turn the water on warm and let run for a few minutes. Do this weekly for drain maintenance.

Faucet Cleaner: Pour about a 1/4 cup of White Distilled Vinegar in a baggie and wrap around the head of the faucet. Use a rubber-band to secure the baggie to the faucet overnight. After it sits overnight, remove the baggie of vinegar and run warm water. Do this monthly.

Tub & Shower Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with White Distilled Vinegar, spray the tub/shower thoroughly with vinegar, then sprinkle baking soda on top. Let the baking soda sit and vinegar sit for 30 minutes. Use warm water and a sponge to scrub and rinse!

Shower Door Cleaner: Fill a spray bottle with White Distilled Vinegar, spray shower door with vinegar. Use a dry microfiber towel to wipe away residue.

Bathroom Floor Cleaner: Mix half a gallon of warm water with half of cup of White Distilled Vinegar in a bowl. Using a mop or sponge, scrub the floor with the mixture. For floors with tile, using a brush and the mixture to scrub stained grout. Mop or sponge and excess water. Let air dry or dry with a towel.

Fabric Softener: Use White House Scented Cleaning Vinegar OR regular White Distilled as a fabric softener replacement. Pour the same amount of vinegar as you would fabric softener. Vinegar creates the same result without all the unnecessary chemicals!
