Scary Food Facts – Just in Time for Halloween!
There may be something scarier than vampires and ghosts lurking in your home this Halloween. While eating hoards of calorie packed candy may frighten you, these scary food facts might make you think twice before indulging in your favorite meals.
From bug parts to excrement, the facts about what is really in our food might leave you reaching for fresh fruit and veggies this Halloween. Some of these food facts might make you sick but luckily, information is power and you can now avoid any foods that might make you turn green. Which fact is the scariest? We’ll let you be the judge.
If you think about it, produce is harvested in a field and is packed in a big warehouse, it’s nearly impossible to ensure that every single bug that ever climbed a stem or nibbled a leaf gets removed before the veggies are shipped to your grocery store. That’s why the FDA has published a guide called the

Conventional cleaning products may be loaded with unsafe chemicals as the manufacturers are not required to reveal all of the product’s ingredients, but fortunately they’re not the only spring cleaning option. Green cleaners made with common natural, non-toxic ingredients are safer and less expensive, and they clean just as well.
Here are our favorite recipes for green and healthier housekeeping in any season:
1. All-Purpose Cleaner.
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of washing soda (sodium carbonate), 2 teaspoons of borax**, 1/2 teaspoon of plant-based liquid soap, and two cups of hot water in a spray bottle. Shake well. (**Note that although washing soda and borax are natural minerals, they’re also caustic, and borax is toxic if swallowed. Keep them out of reach of children! If you prefer not to use them, try swapping them out for other natural ingredients. Or just omit.)
2. Disinfecting Cleaner.
Mix 2 teaspoons **borax, 1/4 teaspoon liquid soap, 4 tablespoons white vinegar, and 3 cups hot water in a spray bottle. If you want to skip the borax, look up a recipe for a hydrogen peroxide-based DIY cleaner.
3. Oven Cleaner.
Combine 1 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup of **washing soda with enough water to make a paste. Apply to oven surfaces and let sit overnight. Wipe and rinse. If you’d prefer not to use washing soda, try making a paste with only baking soda.
4. Tub & Tile Cleaner
Mix 1 2/3 cups baking soda, 1/2 cup liquid soap and 1/2 cup water. Mix thoroughly then add 2 tablespoons white vinegar. Apply immediately, scrub, and wipe. For a mildly abrasive scouring scrub, just blend baking soda and plant-based liquid soap to your preferred consistency.
5. Toilet Bowl Cleaner.
Dump 1 cup of **borax and 1/4 cup of white vinegar into the bowl. Let sit overnight. In the morning, scrub and flush.
6. Furniture Polish.
Apply a 1:1 blend of olive oil and white vinegar, and polish with a soft cloth.
7. Glass & Window Cleaner.
Combine a 1:1 mixture of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. (To remove the waxy build-up left behind by conventional glass cleaners, add 1/2 teaspoon of liquid soap to 1 cup each of water and white vinegar.)
8. Mold & Mildew Cleaner.
Mix two cups of water and two teaspoons of tea tree oil in a spray bottle, shake well, spray, and let stand for a few hours before wiping. Hydrogen peroxide will also work.
9. Floor Cleaner.
Use 1/4 cup washing soda, 1 tablespoon of liquid soap, 6 tablespoons of cornstarch, 1/4 cup white vinegar, and two gallons of hot water on linoleum and no-wax floors. For wood floors, use 1 cup of vinegar in a bucket of hot water.
3 Easy Ways to Improve your Luck!
Visualization is a technique where you picture yourself experiencing a desired event, which helps you work out the steps to make that event happen. You can do this for anything from scoring a goal in a soccer game to healing your body after an intense workout!
Positive thinking attracts luck. Those who are happy tend to have more happiness flooding their way. The next time you feel yourself becoming negative think of something that always makes you smile or laugh!
An affirmation is a way of planting the seeds of success in our subconscious, helping us to think positively and to be more prepared for success. As W. Clement Stone said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
Use affirmations daily to improve your life!
