Julie from Sprinkles Bath & Body made these cute products. Remember those straws I got from fort & field for the melting Witch Punch? Well, these are the same straws. I think this is very creative!  

Lip lollies are all natural lip balm made to look like a real lollipop by using a striped paper straw for the stick…

Since I have incorporated the Green Smoothies into my diet, I am curious of their nutritional content.  Here is what I learned about Kale today:

Kale is considered to be a highly nutritious vegetable, with powerful antioxidant properties and is anti-inflammatory.[1]

Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein and zeaxanthin and reasonably rich in calcium. Because of its high vitamin K content, patients taking anti-coagulants such as warfarin are encouraged to avoid this food since it increases the vitamin K concentration in the blood which is what the drugs are often attempting to lower. This effectively lowers the effective dose of the drug.

Happy At Home proved my thesis. There IS a difference in the local eggs and the grocery store eggs. I bought my first dozen a week or so ago from L & D Farm Fresh Produce.  No hormones. No cages. No pesticides. No cruelty.  And, all the while no guilty mama conscious.

Thanks for the awesome post.  I can’t figure out how to trackback her post so I am reposting it. 

THIS PICTURE SAYS IT ALLTo the left: Local, farm raised, free range chicken egg.
