LET'S GET DRESSED.

LET'S GET DRESSED.

One simple change you can make to drastically improve your health is to remove any and all processed sauces, dips and dressings from your diet.  Store-bought dressings in particular are often lacking in nutrients and fiber, and are high in unpronounceable preservatives, salt, sugar and unnecessary, unhealthy fats (and can taste artificial). 

Try this super easy and quick formula for making your own amazing salad dressings, dips and sauces.  Have fun, play with the ingredients.  The possibilities are endless!

 

SMOOTHIES!

SMOOTHIES!
Just the name alone sounds refreshing, right?

If you were lucky enough to get a Vitamix or Ninja as a gift recently then you are probably looking for all kinds if smoothie recipes.  Here is a great little Green smoothie chart to give you inspiration for your own fruit and veggie combinations.

Don't forget your sunscreen!

Don't forget your sunscreen!

Sunscreen...a necessary essential all year long, but especially now.  Before you head to the beach or even your own backyard, double check your sunscreen for an expiration date.  If it has expired, get a fresh bottle.

Don't forget to cover the tops of your feet, your toes and your hands.  Slather up and enjoy your wonderful summer!
