I Tried Splendid Spoon Smoothies & Bowls So You Don’t Have To (But You’ll Want To)

I Tried Splendid Spoon Smoothies & Bowls So You Don't Have To (But You'll Want To)

Curious about Splendid Spoon? I gave this plant-based meal delivery service a try!

I’ve been working from home for years, but during the past few months, certain things about it have definitely been harder than they used to be. With limiting grocery store trips I found myself feeling uninspired and in a total food rut. When Splendid Spoon reached out and offered to send me some of their smoothies and bowls, I was immediately interested. Several content creators that I follow have been customers for a long time and have always said great things about them.

What Splendid Spoon offers are easy, healthy meals delivered to your door. It takes the thought and planning out of meal prep. They sent me a week of their breakfast and lunch plans. I wanted to talk about the pros and cons here, and share my overall thoughts with you.

So many people ask for help when it comes to cruelty-free cleaning products. When it comes to keeping your home clean, a lot of us grow up with a lot of brand loyalty.

Berkey Water Filters – My Experience with the Big Berkey

Berkey Water Filters - My Experience with the Big Berkey

I got my Berkey Water Filter in September and I get a lot of questions about it. I wanted to answer some of the most common ones I get here on the blog so that I could elaborate a bit more. Berkey Filters sent me the Big Berkey and its stand and it has been absolutely amazing to have.

I mentioned this on Instagram when I first talked about our Berkey, but the water here in Salt Lake City is… Well… Gross. Straight from the tap, a glass of water literally smells like a swimming pool. It leaves a white residue on things from the minerals in it. It’s not something I wanted to be drinking, nor did I want our cats drinking it either. And it’s not just specific to our area or our home. We’ve been out at restaurants and the glasses of water smell so strongly of chlorine and other chemicals that I have a hard time drinking the water.

We had a pitcher filter and it was running through filters every 2 weeks. Before moving to Salt Lake City, we were able to go much longer before it needed to be changed. I didn’t like the waste factor of it, but it seemed to work well enough while we looked for another option. Once we moved to Salt Lake City and the filters didn’t last long.

It was too wasteful to be going through filters them so quickly. Using the pitcher filter system wasn’t cost-effective. It was also very clear to me that our water needed something a bit more heavy-duty.

Something needed to change and I started looking at other options. I had heard about Berkey Filters before and started to really research them. I am so thankful that I was able to work with them to add a Big Berkey to our home.

My Small Dining Room Makeover & Tour with Article!

My Small Dining Room Makeover & Tour with Article!

Today I’m sharing my small dining room makeover with you! As previously mentioned here on Logical Harmony, I plan to keep adding more bits of lifestyle content. I had shared my living room with you and sharing my dining room seemed like a great fit too. I’m so excited to be partnering with Article on this blog post – thank you for sponsoring it, Article!

After working with Article on my living room, it felt like such a natural fit when they wanted to work together again on my dining room. The two rooms share a lot in common – they are small spaces and I wanted them to be functional despite the small size. They are also directly across from each other, so I really wanted to create a space that flowed well together.

I’m really excited to share my dining room tour with you! I’m just so happy with how it turned out. Similar to the living room, I started with a blank slate. After we moved to Utah I didn’t want to bring things into our home unless they were something I loved. This meant lots of meals at the coffee table, but I was okay with that compromise until I found a way to make the dining room an area I loved.
