Does the thought of cleaning your house with food such as vinegar, baking soda and even a piece of fruit have you running for the cleaning isle? I can’t say I blame you. I was skeptical myself, at first. We seem to be in a modern day war with germs, each new product promising to kill them better, faster and with only a quick spray of a nozzle. But does anyone ever read the directions or the ingredient list? I’d bet my left knee-cap that the majority of the population uses the products incorrectly. Why? Because I would consider myself an average person and I used to overspray and hurry the whole process, wasting money, energy and my lungs!
One of the best seasons of the year! And, a good time of year (while the year is still young) to reassess where we're at to be sure we're staying on top of our goals. A time of year to clean, refresh, reset and refocus... in every aspect of our lives. Let's commence this new season by cleansing our homes, our closets, our desks, our desktops, our cars and most importantly, our bodies!
Let's have some juicey fun together! I was flattered to be asked to join Macy's Union Square in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente to do a live demo for y'all! Yes! Come join me, learn a few DIY juice & nut milk-making tips and of course sip complimentary CAN CAN Cleanse juice samples. I'd love to see your bright and smiley faces there. And, not only will you enjoy juice, but it's also Macy's Flower Show kick-off weekend so there will be lots of pretty flowers in-store too. Juice, flowers & friends ~ three of my most favorite things! I hope to see you there!
Ready for a cleanse review? Yay! I recently ask Jae Berman, local SF Registered Dietitian (RD) to test ride our new Ra-Ra Cleanse. As an expert I look up to and respect in the health and wellness world, I was delighted and anxious for her to give it a try. And, the timing could not be more perfect. We're sharing Jae's candid review today - Registered Dietitians Day! We send a million gold stars to Jae and all RDs out there today! Many thanks for the dedicated work you do and services you provide!
When it comes to making healthy eating choices it can often feel like the cards are stacked against us. We live in a world where unhealthy and processed foods are always readily available and have even been shown to be addictive. In addition, we are bombarded by food related advertising at every turn. In 2010 it was estimated that adults ages 18-49 were exposed to an average of 19.3 television food ads per day, a 24% increase since 2004. Given these facts, it can feel challenging to maintain healthy eating habits.
