My Dad clued me into goji berries – it seems he’s addicted to them and always tells me to send him care packages with goji berries! Both my parents are health nuts: my mom knows the nutritional value of every nut, seed, and grain, while my dad will juice anything and everything. Oh and they both love finding ways to consume aloe vera, since we have a thriving garden packed with it. How do they use aloe vera? Here are just some ways: infused in water, blended into smoothies, slathered on your face after a sunburn, and even adding it to fruit salad!
