Help Defund Common Core Standards
You can make your voice heard to stop defund the Common Core State Standards Initiative by contacting your members of the House and Senate by 5:00 pm on April 3, 2014 where a letter will be sent to Congress to end Federal support which may cause more states to end support as well.
Please note whether you homeschool or not, the Common Core State Standards Initiative takes the uniqueness out of learning making all children learn the same things regardless of religious, personal, or educational preferences.
The Future of Raw Meat?
When I read this article, not only was I mad but I became sick to my stomach. Basically as early as 2015 stores will no longer sell raw meat, only cooked meat because apparently, “we-consumers” don’t know what is good for us and must given meat that is already cooked and maybe already chewed. Yeap, there are even talks about giving toddlers and elderly “premasticated meat products” – meat that has already been chewed, because they apparently have a big problem choking on regular food. Nasty! Yuck!
I encourage you to read it for yourself and start making wiser grocery purchases, because whether it is meats, grains, fruits (see this post about strawberries) or vegetables, nearly nothing is they way YAHUAH intended it to be.
Buying healthy food can be very expensive. Many times we have to place orders via the internet just to get what we need and that usually involves shipping (which I highly dislike). A about 2 months ago, I discovered iHerb and having been making regular orders ever since. There are several things I like about iHerb are:
1) No shipping over $20 – which is very easy to do with things like Coconut Oil & Coconut Flakes.
2) Orders are received fast – like 2-3 days (not nearly two weeks like Amazon!)
3) Price – on nearly everything we need, we are savings an average of 10% or more per item than other sites or stores
4) Customer service! I had a problem, they fixed it within hours! No haggling.
5) Free products with order! I just discovered this yesterday but they have products that they offer for free and you can pick on free item per order. Yesterday our free item was toothpaste!
6) The variety of products from food to cups..there are options to fit every preferred diet needs.
You can save even more when you place your first order using my referral code: RCF313 if you have never ordered from them beffore; you will save $5-$10 off their first order and Visit: http://rewards.iherb.com
*This is my personal post about iHerb. I was not asked to post by iHerb, I am sharing the info because I know it can be a challenge to buy supplement, food, etc.
