Guess what? Tiny Tip Tuesday is back!! Well, sort of… I miss sharing my tiny tips with you every week, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to start up the link party again just yet. And I’m not even sure if Tiny Tip Tuesday will actually be every Tuesday either, but for now, whenever I’ve got a great tip to share with you, it’ll be posted on Tuesday for your viewing pleasure.
We just got back from visiting family down in Florida for a couple weeks, and although I thought we’d completely emptied our fridge before leaving, I was surprised to come back and find 2 lonely eggs still in their carton in my fridge door. I contemplated whether or not to throw them out, but then I remembered reading a while ago that you can actually do a quick test to see if your eggs are still good to eat.
You may be wondering where Tiny Tip Tuesday went this week. Well, I’ve decided to put it on hold and take a break from it for a few weeks, at least until after the new year. The end of the year is a very busy and stressful time (as I’m sure you’re all well aware!) and Tiny Tip Tuesday just wasn’t getting the love and dedication it deserved, so it’s going on hiatus for a little bit.
When we come back after the new year, we’ll also be implementing some new changes that will hopefully revamp the party and maybe breathe some new life into it. We’re toying with the idea of having guest hosts, as well as some format changes, so stay tuned for updates! And of course, if you have any ideas or suggestions for our party, please do chime in and let us know in the comments!
Thanks for partying with us every week at Tiny Tip Tuesday, and we’ll see you in 2013!
Have you heard about this yet? Please tell me you have. Dr. Oz had a 5-page editorial in TIME magazine last week in which he completely attacks organic foods, farmer’s markets, and organic farms, and calls those who choose to utilize those avenues of sourcing their food as being “elitist” and “snooty” and “snobs.” Even though, just recently on his show, he was touting the health benefits of organic foods because they contain much smaller amounts of pesticide residue on them. Can you believe this guy? I stopped listening to him a long time ago, well before he had his own show, but this is definitely a new low, even for him. I’m left wondering who has bought him off, because he’s definitely sold out to someone!
Read my complete thoughts on this issue here:
Happy Tuesday, everyone! Hope everyone made it through the crazy weekend in one piece and your week is off to a great start!
Today’s tip is about bananas. Yes, even though it’s almost December, I’m still buying bananas fairly regularly – I know, shame on me! Hey, we’ve all got our weaknesses…
Last week, the bananas were pretty unripe, and I remembered reading about ways to ripen bananas a while ago. The one that kept popping up was placing them in a bag with another fruit to help speed up the process…
Happy Tuesday, dear friends! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! The weather is really starting to dip into the lower temps here, and winter is well on it’s way – so excited!
In case you haven’t heard yet, I’m now contributing to Healthy Planet Canada‘s new healthy living blog! Healthy Planet is actually my local organic store (they have 7 locations + a couple more soon!), and I was more than honored when they asked me to begin contributing to their blog. So every week, twice a week, I’ll be writing for them about green, healthy living, and eco-friendly topics! And don’t worry, you won’t miss a thing (as long as you’re subscribed to my weekly newsletter, or following me on Facebook), because I’m posting excerpts of my posts right here on Nature’s Nurture, which will lead you over to Healthy Planet’s blog for the complete article.
Also, my “Blogiversary” Giveaway Celebration is back and will continue through to the end of the year! So be sure to check every Wednesday for my latest giveaway! This week, we’re giving away a copy of my new favorite ebook, Meal Planning Made Simple, by my friend, Merissa, from Little House Living. This book has been a lifesaver and has helped me really get my kitchen running the way it was meant to be – quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, stress-free!

And now for our Tiny Tip of the week!
We make lots of smoothies around here – everyday actually. So there’s no shortage of dirty blenders around here, and when you use the blender that often, two things happen: 1- your blender manages to find a permanent home on your already over-crowded kitchen counter; and 2- you develop a hatred for cleaning the blender (who wants to keep disassembling and reassembling that thing on a daily basis?!). So, I came across this post on LifeHacker a few weeks ago and have been using this tip ever since!
