6 Ways to Help Save Our Planet and Eat Well Too!We are always looking for new ways to help us better ourselves and the planet, so here are our 6 new ways to improve your lives!

Collapsible Water Bottle
1. Collapsible Water Bottle- Get yourself, your grandkids, anyone in your family, or even your coworkers a personal reusable water bottle! These Que travel bottles are perfect for your everyday adventures. This patented spiral design shrinks the bottle to half of its size, making it collapsible, lightweight, and stylish.  Get it here!

2. Go Vegan for Breakfast– (It’s easier than you think!) Cutting back on meat and dairy products is one of the most effective ways to downside your carbon footprint.

Bags that keep greens freakishly fresh
3. Bags that keep greens freakishly fresh– If your lettuce always seems to wilt before you get to it, invest in reusable Vejibags, which help keep produce fresh for weeks. Get it here!

4. Compost (for real!) – you know you should be composting those orange peels, but you aren’t entirely sure how (or why). Luckily, it doesn’t take much to turn it into a habit that keeps food waste.

5. Meal plan first, shop second!– Before you go to the grocery store each week, take 20 minutes to map out how many  meals you’ll be making at home. Account for dishes that make great leftovers (chili counts for at least two dinners!). Organize your shopping list around loose recipe ideas- stir-fried broccoli and tofu one night, pasta with sautéed kale the next- so that every fresh thing you put in your cart has a destination. If you’re left with a handful of herbs and one cucumber at the end of the week, well, that’s what chopped salad night is for!

6. Double down on Natural Wine– Natural wine is often made by small producers (not large commercial wineries) who care about the planet the same way that you do. The easiest way to show your support for their ethics is to buy their wines from a local shop where you can talk to someone about how your wine was made. No matter which bottle you end up taking home, you’re voting with your dollars for better environmental practices one glass of wine at a time!

Great Tips for Allergy Season

It’s almost that time of year for so many of us. Perhaps you suffer from seasonal allergies, need something in your home to help you along. Or maybe your family, grandchild or even friends who come over may need a little assistance in order to achieve clean air and good breathing. The biggest helper for those struggling to allergies has to be the air purifier. It can help make inhales and exhales easy-breezy! The portable appliance purges tons of irritants such as dust, pollen, and bacteria. Fewer sniffles and itchy throats aside, maintaining indoor air quality may help stave off respiratory conditions, heart disease, and even cancer long term!

Tips for Eliminating the Minutia in Life

Let’s face it- we are all guilty of often times sweating and focusing on the small stuff in life. By doing so, we expend too much energy on what is really not important at the moment in the whole scheme of our lives. What are we left with when this happens? Wasted time. It’s plain and simple. Life as it goes along is a precious commodity- one that could be more fluid, and not paralyzed by all the little things that take up too much of our valuable time.

With winter in full bloom, you may find yourself less active, eating more comfort food, and feeling overall lazier. If you’re a snowbird who spends the winters in Florida, or in the desert of California or are living at home in the cold brittle winters of the northern United States– you may be experiencing more aches and pains, fatigue, and decreased motivation to move. Just like our taste buds crave refreshing food in the summertime and soups in the winter, our bodies and brains also know there is a season change.
