Vegan, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, No Cook – Pink Passion Pie

With Thanksgiving only a few days away here in the United States, we are excited to share another vegan, sugar & gluten free desert recipe following Cara’s fruit-topped cheesecake, to be sitting pretty at your table this year.

This recipe is also from the book – Love On A Plate – which is filled with plant-based recipes which do not require cooking, also know as raw food. For raw food enthusiasts, this is a book which will nicely complement others in your library. Or, if you appreciate the benefits of uncooked food from time-to-time and need some inspiration, then Love on A Plate is a good place to start.

Vegan, gluten free cheesecake, you can do it!

Okay, so Thanksgiving is just around the corner and with Thanksgiving comes the tradition of eating copious amounts of food. Thanksgiving is a bitter-sweet holiday for me, I am always so completely devastated by the by the estimate that close to 45 million turkeys are inhumanely killed in the United States for this day, each year. It is definitely not a thanksgiving for the turkey.

Healthy mouth care, with an ancient tradition thrown in

Looking after your teeth, (and your children’s teeth from an early age), is imperative to ensure you will all have a healthy set for the rest of your life, but  what about natural options? Most of the common sense steps you can take are pretty straight forward, like –

  • Brushing your teeth after every meal, or at least twice a day, aiming to brush for a solid 2 minutes of cleaning for the best results
  • Floss daily
  • Avoid eating damaging foods and drinks, such as fizzy drinks and sugary foods
  • If you drink coffee, rinse your mouth out with water afterwards to avoid staining
  • See a dentist regularly, I take my Son and I also go every 6 months for a cleaning and a check up

Tula Baby Carrier Giveaway

Here at Willy B Mum we are excited to be teaming up with fellow parenting blogger Mommy on the Money to be  giving away a Tula Baby Carrier to one lucky winner. If you do not know what a Tula is, rest assured the brand has kind of like a cult follower, and is a very popular choice for carrying your Little One close to you while moving through your day-to-day business. One of the reasons I personally love it, is because there are so many bright colors to choose from, but there are many other pros to consider too.

This giveaway is not sponsored by Tula or any other brand. Instead, it is an amazing group of bloggers who pooled together their money and time to give away this awesome prize. Let’s shout out to Michigan Savings and More, This N That with Olivia, Live Life Naturally and Tales from A Southern Mom — this is a product that we all honestly love!

So Why Tula?

We appreciate the award-winning Tula brand for its overall practicality. However, in particular for the carrier we are giving away; it can be used in both front and back positions to carry your Little One, it holds a child from 15 – 45 pounds, it is so easy to use and very comfortable to wear, and it can be used from birth by using the additional buy of the infant insert. Among many other reasons!

As some of you are probably already aware, there are so many benefits to baby wearing and Kristi over at MommyOnTheMoney.com is enjoying wearing her second baby, right now. And, of course she is using a wonderful Tula baby carrier. No she didn’t win the Tula, or get it for free for talking about it on her blog. In actual fact she bought not 1 but 4 of them because she couldn’t decide which one she liked best! As an after thought, she figured she would choose one, return 2 and collaborate with some bloggers to give one away.

So which one are we giving away?

Well that would be, the beautifully colorful new Tula ergonomic baby carrier in the Parker design (seen at left).

It’s Giveaway Time
We are giving away a Tula Baby Carrier valued at around $150 USD.
This giveaway is open to residents in the United States only who are over 18 years of age.
This giveaway ends on Thursday the 5th on November, 2015.

Green Diaper & Accessories Giveaway

Diapering is one of those topics that a parent, cannot avoid. However, what you can do, to feel a little better about the situation, is be kind to our earth and reduce toxin exposure to your Little One. Choose a greener route by not using the run-of-the-mill diaper brands and accessories that line the mainstream supermarket shelves. Go You!

As, whether your family chooses to cloth diaper, use disposables, or go diaper-free, every baby eliminates and you are going to have to do something about it. *Sigh

As we have written about before HERE – mainstream disposable diapers are NOT biodegradable meaning that they sit in landfills forever and ever. The average little human uses 6,500+ diapers before they are potty trained!  According to a 2008 Time magazine article “The Real Diaper Association, an advocacy group founded in 2004, estimates that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the U.S. (according to the EPA, that translates into more than 3.4 million tons of waste dumped into landfills)”.

Crazy… when you think about it!

In conjunction with fellow Mummy Blogger, My Darla Clementine, we are giving away goodies, which will all enhance your green diapering experience and we LOVE that. We have Charlie Banana in the mix, as well as a few rocking accessories from indie shops.



by Charlie Banana // A diaper with options(Facebook, Pinterest)

This three pack of cloth diapers comes in “Fluffy Love,” which includes the three diapers pictured in the giveaway image above. They are one-size and feature bra-strap-type adjustment options to ensure a perfect fit. These are pocket diapers (meaning you stuff the inserts inside of them) and come with 6 inserts for extra absorbency. These diapers are also a 2-in-1 system, allowing you to use a disposable insert instead.

Charlie Banana, (don’t you love the name), is committed to providing diapers that prevent rash and are healthy, eco-friendly, and economical. They also support and promote charities, especially Operation Smile and Project Child Save.


by Annie’s Britches // Eco-friendly stitches for little baby britches! (Etsy Shop, Facebook)

Gently scented with chamomile and lavender, Annie Britches Bottom Balm is a calming blend of natural and organic ingredients that heal and sooth diaper rash. It’s safe to use with your cloth diapers and Annie Britches cloth wipes!

These soft, snugly flannel baby wipes are the perfect Eco-friendly solution for your little baby’s britches! They are perfect for families who cloth diaper and those who don’t! Anyone can use cloth wipes and they work especially well for babies with sensitive skin. The flannel is washed and pressed before being cut and serged with rounded edges to make the final dimension of the wipes about 7.5″ by 7.5″. Winner may select a pack of 10 wipes from the Etsy shop in their choice of fabric.

Organic Contour Changing Pad Cover

The Learning Tower, love it so much we have 2

The Learning Tower, is one of those must-have items that I always recommend to parents of a toddler-ish aged child. It is not so known, as say a stroller or a crib, but it should be. It is a clever invention which helps children “join in” on grown-up activities, or on its own is a safe and sturdy contraption where a child can spend time enjoying activities. My 5-year-old Son, has used his since he was 2 years of age, and he is still happily spending time in it.
