Spring has sprung and so has Mo, the Morselist’s creative clean-“itis” craving. ‘Tis time to morselfy your spring cleaning, so let’s get started with some of
Mo’s top 10 tips!
1 Clear the clutter. You all know what I mean. Get it clear and clean!
2 Donate items you haven’t used or worn in more than 6 months to a worthy cause
3 Start a compost bin, can or jar, if you don’t have a yard. I use a large jar to put my brewed chicory root and vegetable peelings. Coffee grounds, tea leaves and even clean egg shells mixed in with soil does wonders for your garden AND reduces waste. DOUBLE MORSELICIOUSness!

4 Make your own eco-friendly cleaner. My favorite concoction is to mix
Baking soda with peppermint castile soap and warm water, which makes an excellent fresh smelling NON-toxic scrubbing agent. Consider adding fresh lemon juice and even using the used lemon for extra fresh scent, scrub and shine. For the sinks and toilet bowl, NOT using the same sponge, try a mixture of baking soda and white vinegar. It actually fizzes when you mix the two, so it’s kind of fun…yes, one must make FUN out of spring cleaning! It’s the MORSELIST’s rule! ☺
5 Clean your refrigerator. Start by taking EVERYTHING out, shelf by shelf. Yes, you may do this one shelf at a time. Deep clean the inside of your fridge with a mixture of warm water, fresh lemon juice and baking soda. Towel dry and put everything back, assuming your food items and jars, etc. are already clean. If not, clean those, too and toss any old and moldy items… say that 3x quickly:
“OLD and MOLDY
OLD and MOLDY
OLD and MOLDY” ☺
6 Clean out and clean up your pantry/cupboards: After removing your shelves, again one at a time, consider lining them with fun lining paper…so much easier to clean. Heck, you can even make your own, if you’re feeling extra MORSELICIOUSly crafty or get your kids involved. Make it fun and while you’re at it, clean up your pantry items that contain high fructose corn syrup, sugar, msg, too much sodium, ingredients you can’t pronounce and did I mention sugar? Stay tuned for my upcoming article on SUGAR DETOX.
7 Open sunshine! Open your windows and breathe in the fresh air! A lil’ fresh oxygen does the body and soul good.
8 For mo’ oxygen in your home, pot some plants in every room. You know I LOVE my green and yes, I have plants in every room of our home and not only does it provide natural beauty, it provides mo’ oxygen and cleaner air. TRIPLE MORSELICIOUSness!
9 Start an herb garden, even if it’s just a little pot…I have a pot of fresh bail on my kitchen counter and it lasts much longer than buying a bunch of basil at the market every week, plus it’s SO fragrant and there’s something really fun about clipping your own fresh herbs for every meal. Try it, you’ll like it. Just ask Mikey. (And if you don’t know that reference, good God, I’m old!) ☺
10 As a reward for completing Mo’s spring cleaning list, I’ll share my
MORSELICIOUS NILLA NUTTY SHAKE recipe. As with 99.9% of my recipes, this is vegan, gluten-free, almost NO sugar or sodium and of course, loaded with oodles of MORSELICIOUSness! Enjoy!
MORSELICIOUS NILLA NUTTY(vanilla-coconut-almond) SHAKE
½ cup canned coconut milk
½ cup almond milk (I prefer unsweetened)
1 tbsp vanilla flavor
¼ tsp pure ground vanilla
optional: 1 tbsp cacao nibs
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until desired consistency and sip or slurp the MORSELICIOUSness.
TIP: If you double or triple the recipe, you can freeze remaining shake in popsicle molds or ice cube trays and blend again with mo’ milk of choice when your CRAVING strike What are YOUR favorite ways to spring clean/detox?
Ready. Set…. GO!
