Insect defend patch

Even in August there are still bugs. Available at most health food stores, the insect defend patch will keep mosquitoes and other critters away for up to 24 hours!

This all natural, topically applied patch contains thiamin (vitamin B1) and is 100% DEET free. Apply within 2 hours of being outside.

Bambu Coffee Substitute

Raise your hand if you are a coffee lover. I do adore my morning cup of java, but find that more than one cup per day is a slippery slope.

This is why I turn to Bambu coffee substitute after dinner as a natural and sweet option to coffee. Made with chicory, figs, wheat, malted barley and acorns, Bambu coffee substitue offers a velvety smooth flavor with only 5 calories per serving! Just add to boiling water or almond milk, stir and enjoy a bit of coconut sugar if desired.

Ten tree apparel

When I have a present to buy, Tentree apparel is often my "go to". For every item of clothing purchased, 10 trees are planted in an area of the world that needs it most. When you purchase an article of clothing from Tentree, you can also visit the "tree map" to determine where your trees will planted.

Extremely soft and cozy, great looking and environmentally conscious.

Baked rainbow trout


  • Extra virgin olive oil for the foil
  • 4 small rainbow trout, boned
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Chopped fresh parsley or thyme for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut 4 sheets of aluminum foil into squares that are 3 inches longer than your fish. Oil the dull side of the foil with olive oil and place a trout, skin side down, on each square. Season both sides with salt and pepper and open them out flat.
In a bowl combine the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and spoon mixture over the middle of each trout. Place 1 or 2 sprigs of thyme on top, and fold the two sides of the trout together. Drizzle olive oil over each piece of fish.

Making sure that the trout are in the middle of each square, fold the foil up loosely, grab at the edges and crimp together tightly to make a packet. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, checking one of the packets after 10 minutes. The flesh should be opaque and pull apart easily when tested with a fork.
Place each packet on a plate. Carefully cut across the top to open it, taking care not to let the steam from inside the packet burn you. Gently remove the fish from the packet. Sprinkle with parsley or thyme and serve, passing the lemon wedges.
