Cucumber Celery Lime Agua Fresca

Green juices are always in! Especially when they’re vibrant, refreshing and nourishing! Spring is here and it’s the time of year when we’re all thinking about “green-living”. It’s also a great time of the year for supporting your body with green juices. While many people rush to do all kinds of detoxes in January and the winter, according to Chinese Medicine, spring is actually a better time of the year for cleansing. What better way to give your body a boost naturally, than with a delicious, hydrating, GREEN agua fresca?! Traditional Mexican agua frescas or “fresh waters” are thirst-quenching, cooling drinks. They’re a popular drink, especially during the spring and summer months when everyone is looking for revitalizing drinks. Authentic agua frescas are full of refined sugars though, and that’s not beneficial when you’re wanting something that’s healthier. I’ve got the perfect solution for that – Cucumber Celery Lime Agua Fresca! This “green” version is packed with green juices and[…]

Earth-Friendly Product Swaps

This Earth Month, we want to celebrate the little things because even the smallest switches can make the biggest difference on the Earth. How do you make these changes? Simply look through your house and look at what ingredients are in the products you use. Is there a brand you can switch to that is more Earth-conscious? To help you get started, we share some of our favorite planet-loving brands you should try this Earth Month. Afterglow Cosmetics Makeup and cosmetics are things many of us use on a daily basis, so switching to an organic, eco-friendly brand would be a wise swap to make because we use it so frequently. Many makeup lines use non-renewable resources in both the actual product itself and the packaging. Brands such as Afterglow Cosmetics, however, source certified organic materials that align with the company’s focus on sustainability. Badger Balm Balms, moisturizers and other skincare products are things that we make use of every[…]

Apple Cinnamon Granola Recipe

Apple Cinnamon Granola is full of delicious, seasonal flavors and packed with lots of textures, just the way granola should be. This chunky granola is perfect for snacking but also perfect sprinkled on yogurt, smoothie bowls, homemade ice cream or served as cereal with your favorite milk or non-dairy milk. This seasonal granola is brimming with lots of healthy, real food goodies! Apples of course, because this is an apple cinnamon granola!
