We’ve got some quick recipes for avocado that will put a spin on the normal eating methods. Avocados are an incredibly versatile fruit (that’s right, they’re not actually veggies)!

Don’t Judge A Bed By Its Covers

Mattresses have become one of the most statistically dreaded products to shop for. Usually, this is because the average buyer feels out of their comfort zone—even though, in reality, they should be focusing on nothing but comfort when it comes to their new mattress. If you’ve ever felt like you paid way too much for a mattress that isn’t doing the trick, you probably didn’t ask the right questions when making your decision—and that’s totally normal. You shouldn’t be expected to know the ins and outs of what makes a great mattress, but you should spend more than 20 seconds resting on one at a showroom. Since most mattresses look the same on the outside, it’s important not to judge a bed by its cover. What actually matters is what’s inside. Do you know what materials went into the making of your mattress? At Naturepedic, clarity is critical. Instead of letting our customers judge a bed by its covers, we[…]

Organic Challenge Wrap Up

Your daily routine probably looks a little like this: you rush to get ready for work, you run a few errands after the workday ends, you grab a quick bite to eat or cook something easy. Even if your routine feels fruitful, leading a productive—but busy–life can take a toll. In the midst of taking care of your day-to-day responsibilities, you may neglect the one thing that matters most: your health. That’s why we challenged our readers to embrace our Organic Challenge throughout the month of May and reevaluate what it means to truly lead a healthy, organic lifestyle. Each week, we focused on a different area of daily life that’s affected by potentially dangerous chemicals. With over 80,000 chemicals produced in the United States, it’s nearly impossible to know whether the items you’re putting into and onto your body are safe—or toxic. At Naturepedic, we know how difficult it is to study each and every chemical that may be[…]

Daily Checklist for Kids

As kids grow older, they also grow more capable of doing little tasks around the house to make family life easier. It’s important for kids to have fun, play with friends, and explore their hobbies, but it’s just as important to teach them practical life skills. With the kids home for summer, there’s no better time to get started with an organized daily task routine. By using our Daily Checklist for Kids, you can pass some responsibilities onto your kids and give them the chance to confidently contribute to the household. How to Use the Daily Checklist for Kids: 1. Each time your child completes one of the 6 daily tasks, they check a box. You can print out multiple copies of the checklist so each child has their own set of daily tasks to complete. 2. Choose a Weekend Reward your child can work toward as they complete their daily tasks. (We provided a few examples!) 3. By the[…]
