Is It Healthy To Fry Food? Deep Fryers and Great Grocery Deals…

Several have asked how I fry my Pumpkin Donuts.  A skillet with about a 1/2 inch of hot oil works great, and that’s how I used to fry food.  But Matt and the boys got me this Oster Deep Fat Fryer a couple Christmases ago and I LOVE it.  This makes the process of frying donuts, chicken nuggets, French fries, etc. so much easier!

Is it Healthy to Eat Fried Food

The question everyone wants to know is:  Aren’t fried foods unhealthy?

My very happy response to that questions is this:  If you fry your food in Palm Shortening or Coconut Oil, your fried foods will be healthy!  The reason?  Palm Shortening and Coconut Oil are digestible, nourishing, and stable fats.  This means that they can be heated to extreme temperatures without becoming rancid or without turning into trans fats.  #happydance #bringonthehomemadefrenchfries

Other oils – in particular bottled vegetable oils and canola oil – aren’t beneficial to our health in the first place.  When they are heated to the high temperatures required for frying, they begin to go berserk because they aren’t stable enough to handle the heat.  When heated for frying, they become rancid or oxidized, then they create free radicals that attack our cells.  This can eventually lead to many health problems and diseases.  #nothanks  #blech  #stickwithcoconutoil

Olive oil is a healthy fat, but it becomes unstable at about 450° so it isn’t always a great choice for deep-frying food.  I do use olive oil to lightly stir fry veggies in a skillet.

I’m so grateful for healthy frying options, because fried food tastes crazy good!  Obviously, we need to balance the good fats and fried food with plenty of fruits and vegetables.  After all, God created our bodies to function best by eating a wide variety of nutrients.  But for the record, fried green beans, fried zucchini, fried mushrooms, and fried asparagus are fantastic.  #bestofbothworlds

Now for some big fat healthy deals around the web:

I typically recommend my favorite Palm Shortening from Tropical Traditions because it is such fantastic quality.  In case you’d like to try a smaller container of this shortening (Tropical Traditions only carries gallon buckets or larger), you may want to try Spectrum brand, which comes in a 24 ounce tub.

Right now, iHerb is carrying Spectrum Palm Shortening for just $6.34 a tub.  Even better?  You get free shipping at iHerb when your order is over $20.  AND, if you’re a new customer and click through this iHerb referral link, you’ll get $10 off your order of $40 or more.  (Or use my referral number at checkout, BID487)  Sweet deal!

While you’re at iHerb getting your $10 off and free shipping, I suggest picking up other ingredients you might need for baking this fall and winter.  They carry my favorite brand of sucanat, Rapunzel Whole Cane Sugar.  I often also get Enjoy Life Soy Free Chocolate Chips and Now Foods Cocoa Powder at iHerb.  Yay for fun baking!  Have fun with your $10 of free grocery money!


I recommend expeller pressed or refined coconut oil for frying as these varieties are flavorless and odorless.  Amazon is carrying BetterBody Foods Organic Refined Oil for just $10.60 for a 15 ounce jar.  There are only a few in stock, so hopefully you can grab one before they run out!

Amazon is running a great deal on a Lodge 5-Piece Cast Iron Skillet Set.  It’s only $63.99, down from $150.00.  This is a GREAT deal if you can swing it.  Cast iron is a fantastic, healthy alternative to Teflon.  You can use palm shortening or coconut oil to season your cast iron.

Universal Housewares is also offering a great deal on cast iron.  Get this 3-piece skillet set for just $24.99, down from $50.00.

What are your favorite fried foods?  Have you switched to palm or coconut oil for frying?  It’s a delicious change for the better!

New Coupons at Amazon ~ And Changes to Amazon Mom Discounts

It’s always fun for me to check out new Amazon coupons the first of each month!  Be sure to read this page which explains more about how Amazon Prime/Amazon Mom and subscribe an save works.  When you put all these together with coupons offered, you can get some great deals delivered to your door with free shipping!

Here are some coupons and deals I found that you might be interested in:

This coupon helped me get a case of Matt’s favorite Larabars for 81¢ each!

larabar core coupon

There are many Plum Organics items you can get with this coupon.  I ordered a case of these bars for sports trips.

I love the convenience of having TP delivered to my door.  I ordered with at a 20% discount with subscribe and save, plus got the $1.00 off with coupon.

angel soft coupon

Making Homemade Chewy Granola Bars is best for you and saves you the most money, but if you prefer to have pre-packaged bars on hand, Cascadian Farm is a good choice.  Get 20% off with the coupon, plus another 20% off if you purchase this along with at least 4 other subscribe and save items.

This Kashi 25% Off Coupon can be used on quite a few different items.  You can look through them all here.

You may have seen that Amazon is changing their Amazon Prime/Amazon Mom benefits after November 11.  Before that date, you will get an additional 20% discount if you purchase 5 or more subscribe and save items.  After that date, the discount goes down to 15%.  It’s not a huge difference, but it’s important to note.  I’m finding that I want to take advantage of the 20% discount one last time for my October subscribe and save order.  So I’m stocking up now!  Our October order will be a big one!

Be sure to check our Amazon Deals page often.  We update every time we find a great deal to share with you!

Were you disappointed to see the % change?  Do you use Amazon Prime/Mom?

Take Advantage of Amazon Coupons to Get Baby Items

We don’t use baby products at our house anymore, so I rarely think to look for good deals for them online.  BUT, you should know (and you probably already do know this) that Amazon offers great deals on high quality baby products.  If you have Amazon Prime and Amazon Mom, you can get 20% off these items when you order at least 5 subscribe and save items during one month.  PLUS, you’ll often find great coupons to use along with Subscribe and Save.

My favorite thing about this, aside from the money savings, is that these products are shipped to your door for free.  No more loading up the little ones to go to the store for diapers and wipes!

Here are some of the best coupons and deals I came across today:

Get $5.00 off Seventh Generation Baby Diapers, plus 20% off with subscribe and save.

seventh generation coupon 1

Get $3.00 off Seventh Generation Baby Wipes plus 20% off with subscribe and save.

seventh generation coupon 2

Get $4.00 off Seventh Generation Baby Diapers, plus 20% off with subscribe and save.  I’d obviously use the $5 coupon above first, but this is also a great one because it can be used with or without Subscribe and Save, whereas the one above can only be used with S&S.

seventh generation coupon 3

Get a 10-15% off Select Natural coupon and pair it with subscribe and save to get an additional 20% off.

select nature coupon

Get a $3.00 off Babyganics Shampoo and Body Wash, plus 20% off with subscribe and save.

babyganics coupon 1

How often do you use Subscribe and Save for baby product deliveries?  Do you find it to be a great money and time saver?

Nutrimill and MadeOn Giveaway Winners, Plus a GREAT Deal on Organic Refined Coconut Oil

nutrimill 2

These are some awfully fun giveaway winners to announce.  Congrats, ladies!

Our MadeOn $25 Gift Certificate winner is:

Karen L: karenaleak@

Our Nutrimill winner from Paula’s Bread is:

Rachel Fisher: rachelgfisher@

Ladies, email me and I’ll forward your info on for your prizes!


I just found a big ol’ 54 ounce tub of Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil which you can get for just $20.79 with the 10% off coupon offered by Amazon.  (Free shipping if you have Amazon Prime.)  This makes the oil only $0.38 per ounce – a great price for organic coconut oil.  I’m most excited about this because it is flavorless and odorless.  It’s hard to find good deals sometimes on refined coconut oil that is actually still good for you.  (Some at the grocery store don’t contain much in the way of nutrition.  I like Nutiva brand.)

nutiva refined oil

I like using refined coconut oil in any recipe I don’t want a coconut flavor.  French fries, chicken nuggets, chicken fried steak – these are all great (and healthy!) with refined coconut oil.  This has a very long shelf life, although I find that I go through it pretty quickly. ;)  Snatch this up!

Today’s the Last Day. It’s Time For Laura to Start Acting Crazy and Giving Out Free Gifts.

This is only the beginning.

I might have gotten carried away last weekend.  And by “might” I mean “did.”  I got carried away.  What, you’re surprised?

See, here we are, on the final day of the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle sale.  I think the package pretty much sells itself, because hello, it includes 80 resources for pennies each, plus 10 really nice bonus items to make your healthy living journey easier.  To be specific, you get a $95 essential oils eCourse for just 37¢, a $29 real food cleansing webinar for just 37¢, a $10 family fitness eBook for just 37¢ - do you really need me to keep going?  You can not miss this.

You have to at least check it out.  What do you have to lose?  Nothing, since there’s a one-year money back guarantee if you don’t completely love it.  I don’t want you to pass this up, then regret that you didn’t take advantage of this.  Tuesday is too late – you have to grab it now.  Here, I’ll make it easy:

For those of you who still need to be convinced of the value of this bundle, I will now answer, in selfie format, the five questions you must still be asking before you hit the buy now button.

1.  Laura, how excited were you when you first got your bundle?


Seriously.  It was like Christmas.  Only healthier.  And it was pretty much all for me, which seems a little selfish, but whatever, because it will bless everyone in my household.

2.  How will I possibly read that many eBooks?

So many ebooks!

C’mon now.  There may be 73 eBooks to read through, but they are yours forever, so let’s not get all ehhh, I’m so overwhelmed and all that.  You’ll keep them in a file on your computer.  You’ll access them as needed.  You’ll give away the ones you will never need.  It’s like having a library right at your computer, full of books that will encourage you in all the healthy ways you need as you hit the restart button this fall.

3.  The bonuses.  Are they legit?

Bonus Freebies

I’m telling you, as if the eBooks and eCourses weren’t rockin’ – the bonus items you can get means this package pays for itself and then some.  You’ll get a free gift from my very favorite MadeOn hard lotion store, free items for baby (great for gifts if you’re not in the baby stage), free herbal remedies from Tri-Light Health (I love these!), and so much more.  You’ll pay for the shipping on these items, but that’s minimal and so very worth it.  These are the best bonus items I’ve seen in any bundle we’ve offered, ever.  See the detailed list here.

4.  What exactly are you doing there, Laura?

Free Yoga Membership

Not only will you get to order bonus freebie items to be mailed to you, you’ll even get free memberships to places like StayAtHomeYoga.com and Tradishen.  Yoga exercises at home, in my own time, with my son’s friends making fun of me in the background?  Bring it on.  And yeah, I’m totally not doing that pose correctly.  I’m still getting it all figured out.

5.  Is the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle really as good as you say it is?

I am so serious

May this Healthy Living Bundle bless you as much as it has me, may you enjoy the benefits of better health, may you fall over with excitement when your bonus gifts come in the mail, and may you all take a selfie and send it to me right after you purchase the bundle.

Bundle Details Here. 

I’m serious.  Do it.  Buy the bundle, then take a selfie.  I want to see your face once you open the package.  I’ll even send you a free Heavenly Homemaker’s Guide to Holiday Hospitality eBook, just to reward your selfie taking and emailing efforts.  Already bought these resources through my site?  Your happy bundle selfies count too.  Here’s my email address.  Let the selfies fill my inbox.  The countdown is on…

What I WANT You to Have and WHY I Want You To Have It

This is it, my friends!  This is the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle I’ve been telling you about.  Wow, it feels so good to finally be able to tell you all the details so that you can get this bundle!!!

Is it worth spending money on this bundle?  Oh it is so worth it, you won’t even believe how worth it, oh my goodness it’s like a no-brainer how worth it this is.

I can’t think of a better investment in your Restart plan.  What I love about this is that you are going to be given months of material to slowly sift through at a 95% discount.  It’s information, it’s encouragement, it’s guidance, it’s ideas, it’s recipes…it’s amazing!!  It really is over $1000 worth of goodies for less than $30.

I keep looking through all the contents of the bundle, pulling up one eBook at a time, getting more excited with each one, and taking notes about new recipes and ideas I want to try.

I’ve been a part of bundle sales before, and I don’t just speak lightly when I tell you that this one is the very best I’ve seen.  I am honored to be a part of this.

See, look.  There’s my eCourse in there.

Does your Restart Button hit begin with cleaning your home naturally?  Does it begin with eating better foods? Does it involve learning about essential oils and other simple natural remedies?  Does it involve getting fit and finding time to exercise?

Whatever your Hitting the Restart Button focus, you’re going to find an abundant blessing of guidance in this bundle.  Find confidence in one area, then start to work through another.  These resources will be yours forever, just waiting to help you with each step.  This is why I want you to have this.

Do you, or does someone you love need to eat a special diet? Tool up with all of these.  My family doesn’t have any dietary restrictions, and we’re still enjoying this section of recipes.  They’re just real food recipes that happen to accommodate special diets.  If I end up not needing some of them, I’ll just send them to a friend who does.

You’ll love that a Getting Started Guide is included with your purchase, which will help you identify the most valuable resources for your specific health priorities.

You’ll also be glad to know that your purchase is covered by the Ultimate Bundles one-year guarantee: you have a full year to enjoy all the books and courses in the bundle, and if you don’t feel like it’s made a huge difference to your family’s health, you’ll get your money back in full!
