Zaycon Foods: Natural Foods, Big Savings!

How does Zaycon Foods manage to provide such high quality super fresh meat and produce to its customers at such low prices? The answer is strength in numbers. And not our numbers, yours!

Zaycon Foods can sell its products at bulk rate prices to individual consumers and families because our unique sales event business model brings lots of people together, adding all their purchasing power into a combined bulk food purchase. And when you buy as part of a group that’s committing to such a large purchase, the power is in the hands of the purchaser! It’s the ultimate group buy in terms of both price and consumer empowerment.
You can pre-select exactly what you want to order from a given Zaycon sales event – sometimes you may want to stock up on our amazing meaty back ribs and sometimes it might be all about the Zaycon bacon – and then, on the day of the sales event, you and a whole big bunch of your neighbors will find yourselves in a nearby parking lot watching as an entire tractor trailer’s worth of high quality natural food is unloaded into all of your cars! You will be amazed at how quickly one of our refrigerated trucks goes from being filled with natural, fresh chicken or hundreds of gallons of grade A non-homogenized milk to being empty and back on its way to the farm!

A Zaycon Foods truck sales event often lasts less time than you would spend on a trip to the grocerystore, yet you will leave with a whole lot more food than you’d get at the market, and for much better prices, too!

When you use the Zaycon Foods sales event as your preferred place to purchase meats, milk, and any of our other fine products, you get advantages even beyond the bulk pricing that comes with our special sales model. You also have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you’re going to get! A trip to the grocery store can involve wasted time wandering around looking for various foods spread out across the store; at a Zaycon Foods parking lot meat truck delivery (or milk or berries or fish delivery, too!) you have pre-ordered your foods, so all you have to do is show up and wait for our friendly staffers and volunteers to load up your car. 

Also, unlike in the grocery store, the prices you will pay for a Zaycon Foods product are locked in on our website, so you will know how much you are going to spend before you have committed to a purchase. 

At a supermarket, you might pay one price for chicken on one day, and then a higher price on another day. With Zaycon, you decide that you want to order a case of our fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts, you check the price and then you commit to it, knowing that from that moment on, we are committed to getting you your fresh, natural food!

Cascade Platinum Review + Instagram Contest!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I have always been one of those people who basically washes their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. You know... you say you are going to rinse them off, but you end up scrubbing every piece of food off because you know your dishwasher will not get them clean otherwise. 

Up until recently I always blamed my dishwasher for this problem. I had no idea that the dishwasher detergent I used could be the culprit! 

When I received the chance to review Cascade Platinum Pacs, I was really excited!  Here are a few reasons why:

  • Triple action formula helps to prevent residue on dishes and film on the machine.
  • Scrubs away 24 hour stuck-on-food.
  • Has the grease fighting power of Dawn!

  • I have been using Cascade Platinum Pacs for a week now and I am completely impressed! I loaded my dishwasher without rinsing my dishes {gasp!!} and they actually came out spotless! I could not believe it! 

    Cascade has partnered with Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons.  Check out this video where Gail gives you some tips on how to load your dishwasher: 


    Do you want to win a Kitchenaid Kitchen makeover AND a year supply of Cascade?  I know I do!!!  Here’s what you need to do to win:

    • Visit this website for details on how to connect with your Instagram account. If you do not have an account, you can find out how to get started with one there!
    • Each week you will be given a task for a particular picture you need to take.
    • Upload the picture to Instagram and tag it with #MyPlatinum

    Week 1:  Show us your best dish styled from the sparking plate up! (6/3-6/9)
    Week 2:  Show us your best bite and most creative use of sparkling silverware! (6/10-6/16)
    Week 3:  Show us how you serve up creative concoctions in sparkling glasses! (6/17-6-23)
    Week 4:  Show us your sparkling tablescape for your most special celebrations! (6/24-6/30)

    • Each week, two lucky contestants will receive a brand new Whirlpool dishwasher! Very cool!

    As I mentioned above, I have been using the Cascade Platinum Pacs for a week now. I absolutely love them! They work amazingly. They do not leave any stuck on food on my dishes and there is no gross residue either. I also love the great smell of the pacs as well. I would highly recommend Cascade Platinum Pacs to anyone and everyone. I will definitely be purchasing these pacs in the future and I think that if you try them just once, you would want to use them again as well.

    Mother Tongues T-Shirt Review

    About Mother Tongues:

    At MotherTongues, we believe in celebrating life-affirming words and concepts from diverse cultures. We print these words on the best quality Fair Trade, organic cotton t-shirts, so that you can feel good wearing it. Pick a word(s) that speaks to you, and enjoy as it becomes your mantra while wearing it.

    I was recently given the opportunity to review a t-shirt from a company that I absolutely love: Mother Tongues! They make shirts, scarves, aprons and more with words and concepts from multiple cultures that have wonderful meanings. I had a very difficult time choosing my favorite!! 

    After much consideration, I chose the Zen t-shirt for review. 

    I just love everything that this shirt stands for. Here is a little about this shirt (from their website):

    Practice Zen and discover the art of mindful living. The Japanese word for meditation, Zen is deeply rooted in East Asian cultures. Know it as Chán (China), Seon (Korea), Thiên (Vietnam) and dhyãna (India). To practice Zen is to experience every moment; to awaken your spirit; to protect the humanity of others; to appreciate life. Open yourself to a new way of being: Slow down. Sit. Breathe. Find joy. Live deeply.

    I have received many compliments on this shirt so far, and I have only had it for a couple of weeks! 

    Even more than the clothing Mother Tongues has available, I love what they stand for the most. MotherTongues is committed to values such as fair trade, cultural sensitivity, ecological sustainability and economic justice. They also donate a portion of their proceeds to organizations such as Green America, Center for Women in Transition, and NativeEnergy. I love companies that give back!!

    I would highly recommend Mother Tongues to anyone! They make high quality products with a wonderful meaning behind each and every product. Be sure and check them out at

    I did not receive compensation for this post. I did receive product(s) mentioned above to facilitate the review. All opinions are 100% mine.
