Both Syfy and I have issues with dairy and try to avoid it as much as possible these days (with the exception of really good cheese and yogurt!). I use non-dairy options instead when making all of our classic favorites! One of first things that I searched out to learn how to make, was whipped cream. I grew up in a household that believes that no hot cocoa and no pumpkin pie should ever go without at least a dollop (or more….) of whipped cream! This is law in our house and so the thought of getting rid of all of our dairy had daunted me, when I realized that also meant my beloved whipped cream. Don’t be sad! There is a fantastic and super simple alternative that tastes just as great! Take it from this whipped-creamaholic that this coconut milk whipped cream is SUPER good and doesn’t taste like coconut to me, at all.

I don’t know about you, but when I hear that Febreze commercial using the slogan “breathe happier,” I tend to get all worked up over it. It is impossible to “breathe happier” when you are breathing in toxins, allergens, and bronchial irritants, all of which are ingredients in Febreze room sprays, candles, and other “air fresheners” sold on the market. I almost feel like all of these companies should be charged with false advertisement, for labeling their products “air fresheners”.

One of the worst headaches that I have experienced, was a spinal headache. They had injected my spine with contrast dye, hoping to see the extent of the damage that needed to be fixed in my upcoming surgery to untether my spinal cord. At the time, I couldn’t fathom what my Doctor meant when he had told me to lay down for a few hours afterward, otherwise, it might go to my head. The worst headache I had ever experienced was nothing compared to the resulting spinal headache that followed.
