Cooking and Cleaning….this IS my life!!!

I’ve waited a while to go public with this, only because I wanted to test these products out and make sure that they would make a positive impact on my day-to-day life.

As the title to my blog indicates, I am on a Relentless Pursuit…..of a lot of things! Small, but significant changes are slowly but surely transforming many areas of my life. Overall health and wellness encompass many different facets, and at the core of it all are the meals I cook and the atmosphere of our home.

As a Pampered Chef consultant, I have chosen products that reduce prep time, thereby making the seemingly endless process of preparing wholesome meals, so much more enjoyable. The quality and appearance of the serving and tableware add the final touch as my meal goes from kitchen to table. The fact that our products address both preparation and presentation are just two of the reasons that I love being a PC consultant!

A few months ago, I took on a temporary full-time position at the hospital to cover for a co-worker that was off for health reasons. Knowing that I would have even less time off, and less energy, I was concerned about how I was going to keep up with even the routine housework. I considered even hiring someone, but that is expensive, and in reality, doesn’t really save me a lot of time or work, since by the time I get the house ready for someone else to clean, I’ve almost done most of the work myself.

Years ago, I had heard of Norwex. I was told of cleaning cloths that would do the job brilliantly, only using water. That seemed unfathomable to me, so I admittedly dismissed it.

However, I began to take a second look…..wondering if these products could actually work well for me and do the job I needed them to do. Now my house is by no means spotless, but to create an atmosphere that is both presentable should anyone drop in, or more importantly, at least keep it in a state where I can feel relaxed and at peace, is incredibly important to my own mental well-being.

So I started with the mop system and their Envirocloth and Window cloths. Now I have used microfibre for years, but not like these! They clean so well and so quickly, that it is ALMOST fun to clean!!! The mop system works great to keep the floors clean with minimum effort and ZERO chemicals (another relentless pursuit of mine). These products are created using BacLock®—an exclusive micro silver antibacterial agent which offers continuous protection against microbes and odours within the cloth. So it is anti-bacterial on the surfaces you’re cleaning and then self-sanitizes the cloth as it dries. The mop pads are the same…. These come with a dry pad for “sweeping” and a wet pad for mopping. I have also began using the laundry and dishwashing products as well, further reducing the chemical use in our home. With just using water on my household surfaces and floors, I have been able to eliminate a number of cleaning products all together!

Anyway, I’m only sharing this here because both these products have benefited me greatly in my Relentless Pursuit of creating meals and a home for myself and my family, and working toward living as toxin-free as possible. Rather than having two Facebook groups, one for each company, I would prefer to share my use of these products here because they have become so much a part of my daily life, and my quest to create the home and atmosphere that is unique to us as a family.

As my title says, it is a pursuit. A process. I have not arrived, but I am seeing consistent, sustainable changes as I move forward in my journey.

If you are interested in any of these products, I am a consultant for both companies, not something I would ever do lightly, but to me…. PC and Norwex are a match made in heaven and I have so much confidence in both product lines!! Cooking and cleaning are a huge part of my life, and though I am more passionate about one than the other, they both integral parts of my life that are expressions of my values and my heart.

The links to my personal websites for both companies, are at the top of the page in the menu section if you want to check out any of these products, or the many other that are available.

Love you all….thank you for journeying with me on my pursuits.
