August 7, 2019
rosemary

Celebrate summer barbecues with veggies, infused with rosemary and drizzled with a citrusy Italian dressing. This simple sauce puts a healthy twist on classic Italian flavors with sweet orange in place of vinegar and Udo’s Oil in place of a commercial variety grain oil. The result is mellower than the typical store-bought variety and significantly healthier. We enjoyed it paired with grilled summer veggies and rosemary. With such simple everyday ingredients, you can easily use it to dress everyday salads on short notice. It’s an…

ice pops

For the kids and the kids at heart, try this electrolyte replenishing, oxygenating ice pop post-play. I’m fairly certain it’s well known that when we engage in physical activity, we lose important electrolyte minerals through sweat and exertion. To restore that fluid balance and help our muscles recover from exercise, beverages that contain these electrolytes are extremely important. Where do we get these electrolytes if not from Gatorade? Of course, filtered water should contain trace minerals that allow us to…

As one of the longest standing ingredients in the arsenal of holistic human health, honey has a lot more to offer than a simple refined sugar substitute (though it’s perfect for that too!). Honey has been used for its unique…

Lemonade is timeless. It’s sweet, citrusy and there’s nothing that refreshes quite like it when the heat sets in.

And, while we’re at it, healthier. How Do We Make Mānuka Lavender Lemonade? To start, give this Mānuka Lavender Lemonade the essence of lavender by making a lavender ‘tea.’ To do this, steep dried…
