Things I Use

Recommended Food Resources

I know it’s hard to find allergen-free “friendly” food.  So, when I find a product that we love and that makes our lives easier, I’ll post it here on this page.  Check back often as this page will be growing, and I’ll be sure to post about some of the great deals and offers that I come across, too!

Zaycon Foods

Zaycon Foods is a really neat food co-op idea!  They make deals directly with farmers so you cut out the costs of the middle-man.  They specialize in fresh meat.  Not all of their products are allergen-free, so shop wisely.  It comes in large bulk packages, like a 40 lb case of fresh, never frozen, minimally processed boneless chicken breast.  You have to do a little extra work to divide it up and freeze it, but I can save over $1 per pound!

Rolled Oats

Rolled oats are so versatile and so good for you!  You can make a hot, comforting bowl of oatmeal in 3 minutes!  I use them in baked goods, granola, and all kinds of snacks.  We go through a lot of rolled oats around here!

Beginner Training Courses

Blog CPR Course from Nicole Dean

I took this course as a self-study in 2015.  I was very overwhelmed with what to do about this blog.  I was having trouble finding time to work on blog posts or anything else related to the blog.  This course helped me to break things down into manageable steps and got me back to moving forward again!  The lessons are short, but packed with practical ideas that you can implement right away.
