Get Fresh with Sara Snow

Sara Snow’s Fresh Living: The Essential Room-by-Room Guide to a Greener, Healthier Family and Home has become my favorite read!

Juicing is so important and yet I am always looking for something fun to grind up. Fresh juice is one of the most nutritious and easily-digestable way to get your daily intake of vegetables and fruits. Even if your diet is already rich in fruits and vegetables, digesting a meal can take hours. When you juice, those vitamins and nutrients can be in your blood and delivered to your vital organs and cells in a matter of minutes.

Drink your juice right away. After juicing the nutrients begin to lose their power.
Be sure to “chew” your juice—swirl it around in your mouth to activate the digestive enzymes in your saliva. Enjoy!

Boost your Immunity
2 or 3 carrots
1 celery stalk
1 apple (take the core out but leave the skin on)
1/2 beet with greens left on
1/2 handful of wheatgrass
1/2 handful of parsley (this adds a distinct flavor, so it can be left out)

Soothe an upset stomach
2 apples—any color or variety
1 pear—firm juices better than soft
1 good chunk (about an inch) of fresh ginger
For the apple and pear, take the core out but leave the skin on. Juice together and enjoy.

Calming and soothing
3 apples (take the core out but leave the skin on)
2 stalks celery

3 oranges
2 pears—firm works better than soft
1 small yam or sweet potato

Lead FREE and Bees Free

Scooterbees is a hand-crafted eco-friendly soft-soled shoe with non-toxic paint that feels like a slipper. They are the real deal made with recycled fibers derived from both post-industrial and post-consumer sources, including PET soda and water bottles. If that doesn’t impress you, they are machine-washable!

What I fell in LOVE with before I read how it was made is the adorable designs that relate and are educational. I am sure you can think of a fun story to tell your child by looking at the shoes below. Picture 1
