Homemade Spaghetti Sauce #HealthyTraditions and GIVEAWAY

Disclosure: I have been given product to review and have been compensated for this post.  All opinions, ideas and content is 100% my own.

This past year I have been trying really hard to become more healthy and I have been trying to get my family to be more healthy too.  Since June I have been exercising regularly, eating less junk food and trying to cook homemade meals that are healthy.  Spaghetti is one of my absolute favorite meals.  We seriously have it once a week (usually on Wednesday, those are my long days and spaghetti is so easy to make).  This is the recipe I grew up eating and I love it!

Well you know what goes in must come out...  

The Squatty Potty toilet stool is an invention that helps make going easier.  It makes you sit in a squatting position rather than a sitting position.  And that helps you remove your waste quicker and more completely.

I really thought that it worked well.   Without going into too many details, because I'm sure you don't want to hear too much about my visits to the bathroom, I felt like it did the job and I felt cleaned out.  My kids have enjoyed it too.  It's really nice to have with my little girl who is potty training right now.  They also have a spray that helps with the odor in the bathroom.  You spray the water before you go, it's great!

I know we don't like to talk about it, but going to the bathroom is important for your health.  Being all backed up is not a good thing.
