    Charise, This list is not only do-able, but it is extremely thorough! You have done an amazing job spreading the GREEN!!! xo

    I’ve always used Tom’s of Maine toothpaste, but I know they were recently bought out by Colgate, so I’m not sure how I feel about them now. I really love your post and your advice, since I follow it myself (and am a recent coconut oil convert!)

    Hi Charise,
    I love one part coconut oil melted mixed with one part maple syrup and one part cocoa powder. Melt it all together and half fill muffin tins. Put in freezer for a little while. Spread on some organic peanut butter and another layer of the chocolate mix and freeze again. omg, so good!

    Thanks for the great list! Wow, I will have to try that chocolate/peanut butter treat! The item that my husband finally realized he had a dairy allergy with was actually a peanut butter cup — he’s never had one since!

    I love coconut oil but have only used it for baking. We go through it so fast — I need to find it in gallon size! It costs a lot around here, so I stock up when I find a deal.

    Grapes are so hard for me — my kids LOVE them and they are SO helpful to keep them regular (they are constipation-prone), but organic ones are really hard to come by or totally out of our price range. And wah about the wine, I hadn’t thought of that, either!

    Awesome tips – thank you! 🙂

    While I agree in the importance of eating organic. I find importance in eating locally equally important. Most of the alternative foods (“hints”) on the list in the post are tropical produce such as mangos, papaya, kiwi, bannanas, and melon. These types of foods would have to travel thousands of miles for most of us to eat them. I suppose this is okay if you are only concerned with eating organic and not local. 🙂

    What a great list! Thanks for all the hints.

    I love using coconut oil, too. I don’t actually like the taste, so I try to use it for cooking in ways I don’t notice it. But it cooks fabulously. You’ve inspired me to try it for my chapped lips and hands, because nothing’s solving that problem for me right now! Thanks.

    I hope it helps for the chapped lips and hands!

    Awesome list! And thank you for sharing that quote at the beginning – it is very inspiring to a mama who is trying to change so many things for the sake of my Baby Bean. 🙂

    I recently used coconut oil mixed with baking soda and arrowroot powder to make deodorant – and it is seriously the best deodorant I have ever used! 🙂

    I have not had good luck with cooking…I’ve tried it w/stir fry, soups, and smoothies, but that coconut taste always gets me (I really don’t like it! :p) Haven’t tried it with baking yet though…I think that is next on the list! (or maybe I’ll just make myself eat a spoonful of it every day…isn’t that supposed to be good for you?) 🙂 And don’t mind it too much with popcorn.

    Thanks again Charise!
