PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR FAVORITE DRINK RECIPES, OR LET ME KNOW HOW YOU LIKE MINE IF YOU TRY THEM! :)

Here are my favorite holiday drink recipes:

HOT COCOA: Heat one cup of milk in a mug, stir in one tablespoon of sugar, and one rounded tablespoon of cocoa powder, stir well and ENJOY!!! Super easy, and very healthy. Cocoa powder has lots of health benefits and antioxidants, and it is much healthier than getting the premixed pouches. (You can also try this with organic coconut milk!)


HOT MACTCHA TEA WITH LEMON: Heat one cup of water, add one service of organic matcha powder, add 1/2 tablespoon of organic lemon juice, and stir together. Enjoy! Matcha is another one of those superfoods that are packed full of antioxidants! Matcha is healthier than regular green tea because it has 10 times the amount of nutritional value and antioxidant content!


MY HOLIDAY RED SANGRIA: I always buy frozen raspberries, peaches, blueberries, strawberries. I mix about 1/4 cup of each into 4-6 oz. of alcohol-free red wine (the alcoholic one is also an option, of course!), I add orange slices to the rim of the glass and it's awesome!


THE GRINCH EGGNOG: So I get organic eggnog (about 4 oz.), and 4 oz. of organic whole milk. I blend this mixture with either a spoonful (or serving) of matcha powder, or a spoonful/serving of green superfood powder. I blend it in the blender, and I might add whip cream on top if I decide to get crazy! :)

 

MY NEW FAVORITE GIRL ITEM

Okay, so I just starting using a menstral cup about two months ago after reading thousands of amazing reviews by women. I thought it would be great to share my experience because I am trying to blog about overall health and well-being. It is absolutely amazing! No more buying tampons, pads, etc. It is MUCH healthier for your body because you do not risk losing pieces inside or have to deal with unpleasant clean-up. They are super simple and easy to use. It took more a whole cycle to get comfortable with it (wear pads the first time with it in case you mess up!) There are plenty of youtube videos about it and if you do more research about it and try it let me know! I use the Diva Cup.



ORGANIC COTTON CLOTHING/TOWELS

Posted by Samantha Schobel on October 21, 2014 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

I've been reading about how important it is to wear organic cotton because lots of pesticides and harmful chemicals from traditional cotton can be absorbed through the skin! I've been wearing organic cotton and I've noticed that the clothing is extremely soft, breathable, and sturdy compared to average clothes. I also have organic cotton towels and I've noticed they are more absorbent and dry more quickly than traditional towels. Buying organic doesn't have to be expensive! I usually go to amazon and browse the sales. I've found organic shirts for less than $10...and they are SOOO worth it! I've also found organic bed sheets in which the colors are discontinued at websites like westelm.com, and they have very good deals! Imagine your body absorbing those pesticides all night for 8 hours! Yuck!
