NEW! Weekly Small Business Feature!

Every week from now until Christmas I will be featuring a small business! A lot of these small businesses are busy mothers with families who work out of their homes.

Wendy Zook, a wife and mother to 8 children, including a set of twins handcrafts soaps. I love all the soaps that I have purchased from her Etsy Shop and so do my children. These soaps including sugar scrubs can be purchased from her Etsy Shop. I love her charcoal bars and my son uses it when he shaves.

Sugar-free Spice Mixes

If you’re trying to eat healthier I’m sure you’ve noticed that there is added sugar in almost everything. It can be very frustrating, especially when you’re first starting out, to try and find things you can eat that won’t spike your blood sugar. I remember when I started eating the Trim Healthy Mama way how frustrating it was to find even a taco seasoning packet that didn’t have sugar in it.

Why did we have to have all these preservatives and additives in the taco seasoning? I was not happy feeding that to my family. Yes, the packets are super convenient but I knew there had to be a way to replace the packets. I was right, and it was SUPER easy. Why hadn’t I thought of making my own earlier?

It wasn’t just the taco seasoning either. I started checking chili packets, rubs for meat, creole mixes and they ALL had added sugar. YUCK!
