Happy Thanksgiving! Whether you are online relaxing after a busy day or holed up in a corner on your phone avoiding family (not judging!), there are some great deals that are already in full effect on Amazon. I’ll be keeping this post updated throughout the weekend with anything I see. This is the time to send some hints out to your spouse or other family members or even just to snag some great deals yourself to update your kitchen. Read more
More than any other holiday Thanksgiving is focused on the food. I think this makes it easy to write off for most people. It’s just one meal, it only happens once a year.

If you haven’t heard, tomorrow, July 11 is Amazon Prime Day. Over the past few years, this day (Amazon’s ‘birthday’) has grown in popularity because of the amazing deals featured, sometimes even better than Black Friday prices! The only catch is they are available to Amazon Prime members exclusively.
If you are not already a member, I can give you plenty of reasons but it all boils down to the fact that you can find pretty much anything on Amazon, usually at a very competitive price and with Prime it will be on your doorstep in 2 days…for free. This is the perfect time to Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial and get all the great deals! Special prices have actually already started to trickle in and Amazon.com states the official start time for Prime Day will be 9:00 pm on July 10 (tonight)! Read more

You get home with limited time until dinner and 100% of the meat in your house is frozen solid. This is when we usually turn to take out or pizza, but there is a better way! I am sure you have heard about the super popular kitchen gadget the Instant Pot. The hype is true, you can honestly have dinner on the table straight from the freezer in under an hour. Much less depending on the recipe including this fast and easy Instant Pot salsa chicken. Read more
April showers brought May flowers, along with the greening and blooming of everything. Now that we are into June you might think the opportunity to start your home garden has passed. Not true! In fact late spring is the perfect time for much of the country to start a garden. It’s not too late to grow your own organic produce! Read more
Here at Organic Meal Mechanic I focus mainly on food. However when my husband recently asked me ‘what do you want for mother’s day?’ it dawned on me that my answers might be worth sharing. If you have a special mom/aunt/daughter/wife/grandma/sister who is interested in living a more natural and organic life, I have some great organic Mother’s Day gift ideas to help celebrate them this weekend.
