Last night it was a Netflix night for us. It seems to take forever just to find something we can both agree on. One genre we can agree on is documentaries, I’m a huge fan of them.
I stopped on this documentary called, “Stink”. It’s about a single dad’s search for the source of a strange odor in his child’s pajamas he purchased as a Christmas gift and uncovers potentially toxic secrets of the chemical industry. ☠️
It was VERY eye opening to say the least. I’ve known toxic chemicals were laced in our everyday items we use but I was unaware to what degree! It’s also very concerning that our government has no regulations set in place to protect you, the consumer!
Companies can hide toxic chemical content in products and legally DO NOT have to disclose the contents. It’s a loophole where they can label the content as “fragrance” or retain ingredient information as “Trade Secrets”. These chemicals can disrupt our hormone structure and even change our DNA and it’s legal not to disclose it! 😱
While I’d love to throw all of my products in the garage, let’s be a little realistic. Educate yourself and make the best decisions possible for you and your family.
But don’t take my word for it...watch “Stink” on Netflix.

Nothing worth having comes easy.
You never jump into a small business venture thinking it will easy. Especially in food service.
Our Eggroll Joe's journey has been no exception. But I can say despite the frustration, it has been a positive experience of quality time together, expanding our knowledge, and creating our image as we wanted it to be.
When we picked up our trailer, it looked to be in a business ready state. We were told it had been checked and approved for service . So we needed to add an additional serving window and we would be all set for soft opening in fall. .
By adding this window we opened the Pandoras box of issues! Moldy insulation, rotted wood, unframed windows, an unsupported subfloor. So we basically had a gut job on our hands.
Joe and I didn't plan on an additional 3 months of work or an additional 3 months without possible income. But we also didnt plan on the positives....learning how to build window frames, install floor supports, weather proof a trailer or the enjoyment we have creating our space together! .
Nothing worth having comes easy. And our dream...Its worth having.
And when Eggroll Joe's hits the street, people will see our time, sweat, passion and love for what we are doing!! And we will fight for that! 💙
Last nights dinner at the @farmerveterancoalition Conference. So inspiring to be surrounded by fellow #veterans who traded their combat boots for farm boots. A great reminder for us at @growingveterans of why we do what we do. Loved connecting with everyone in person, even if just for a brief time 🇺🇸 #homegrownbyheroes#veteran#veteranowned
