Edible Skincare: Avocado Face Mask

Our skin is a super absorbent organ, that not only gains benefits from what we put into our body, but also from what we put onto our body. So why are we only eating our beloved nutrient dense plants? Smother yourself in them. This is when it’s okay to play with your food a little! Get the “recipe” for this natural face mask.

8 Anti-Inflammatory Nutrients to Eat Now

Inflammation is at the root of many chronic diseases, and in most cases is increased by the way we live our lives, our behaviors, and what we eat. Eating a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help. Here are 8 important nutrients to fill up on.

The Smarter Way to Approach Your Next Meal

A few months back, butter made the cover of Time magazine. This once demonized ingredient thought to be at the root of our drastic rise in heart disease and other illnesses, is in comparison to other culprits, like margarine, being redeemed as not so bad after all. In other words, less of something real is better for you than more (or frankly, any) of something fake. Read on to reconsider how you sit down to your next meal.

13 Reasons to Pass on Plastic

When you’re purchasing your juice or smoothie at a local juice bar it likely comes in a plastic cup. When you pick up a salad at your local salad bar, it likely comes in a plastic container. When you bring leftovers home, it likely comes in plastic. We live in a world of plastic. Find out why that’s not good.

Kale Fennel Tahini Salad

When you need an easy but healthy dinner, try this salad. It’s delicious and creamy, and makes for a great way to enjoy those nutrient-packed dark green leafy vegetables and other healthy produce. Try using the delicious dressing as a dip with any combination of your favorite vegetables! It can even be used as a dipping sauce, too. Get the recipe!

What Your Outsides Say about Your Insides

3 Reasons to Make Your Own Breakfast Cereal

Of the many different breakfast options, cereals are a popular, quick-fix for breakfast. When they’re fresh, fiber-filled and home-made they make for a great way to start the day; however, most often it’s easier to pick ready-prepared varieties that are often laden with extra calories, sugar and artificial colorings. This guideline makes it easier for you to make your own healthy cereals!

Smart Sweet: Raspberry & Lime Mousse

When you’re craving a rich creamy vegan, gluten and dairy-free mousse., this is your answer. This dessert is nice and rich, which is why we love it, but I recommend this as a smaller serving. Just a small serving is all you need and it won’t disrupt a healthy eating plan.

Meatless Monday: Crunchy Vietnamese Salad

I have a thing for coriander (cilantro) and shallots (scallions) in everything at the moment (obsessed maybe?). This is a phase I go in and out of, but since right now I’m in, I decided to add them to this salad. It’s nutrient packed and delicious! Get the recipe.
