As always we face a number of challenges lacking easy solutions – life with or without ASD is never a straight line. Making lip balm at home has at least resolved the issue of persistent chapped lips, in a healthier, and more affordable way. This is an amazing, affordable lip balm with wholesome ingredients, the best I have ever used at any price point. And it always make me feel good when I can do something, however small, to make our lives better.

Vegan Mint Chocolate Ice Cream
For some time I have been trying to ‘crack the code’ on a vegan ice cream including some combination of mint, chocolate and crunch. Until today I was not satisfied with the results; the proportions of the mint to chocolate were off, and there was no crunch.
