Apple pie for breakfast.  What a thought. A brilliant thought.  Apple pie at anytime is pretty much a win. Especially when it’s a real food apple-pie made with fresh-picked apples, flaky, buttery crust, and a mouthful of aromatic spices that just embody the whole experience of eating apple pie.

Yes, I am a little crazy about apple pie.  That is why I came up with this easy homemade apple pie spice mix – it’s much easier than buying apple pie spice at the store and so versatile.  Throw it into any “apple-type” recipe like oatmeal,  my apple bread{less} pudding, apple sauce, muffins…you get the point.

But I claim no responsibility if smelling it makes you want to bake an apple pie. :)

I Wish I Could Win, But Since I Can’t…Want a Berkey?

berkeyMy guess is that you are blessed with access to clean running water. We don’t really worry about getting parasites or other waterborne diseases when we turn on our tap.

But while we are blessed with clean water coming through indoor plumbing, are you aware of some of the environmental contaminants that are frequently found in that water? Traces of heavy metals like mercury and aluminum, pesticide residues, and volatile organic compounds can be found in our drinking water!

This is why the bloggers of Positively Real Media are so excited to be teaming up to bring to you a Royal Berkey 3.25 Gallon Stainless Steel Water Purifier giveaway sponsored by United Environmental Solutions!

About The Berkey

Berkey water purifiers are truly unique water purifying systems. According to UES, they are able to remove red food coloring from water while still allowing beneficial minerals to remain!

As free-standing units that put the power of gravity to use, the Berkey systems don’t use any electricity. This makes them excellent systems to have on hand while camping or during power outages.

Positively Real Media is giving away a Royal Berkey

While whole house filtration systems can be fantastic solutions to the problem of residual water contamination, they are simply out of the budget for most families. However, a Berkey system is a fraction of the cost and can filter 4 gallons of water per hour, making it a great fit for families!

If you want to ensure that your family’s drinking and cooking water is as clean and pure as it can be, a Berkey may be just what you need!
