At our house, we’re hot sauce lovers. Obsessed with adding heat to everything we eat, but very picky as to what kind of hot sauce we’re adding to our meals. No high fructose corn syrup in our hot sauces and that’s why we’re loving the all natural ingredients in this sauce: Habanero Peppers, carrots, onions, Key Lime Juice, agave nectar, garlic, salt, and Grapefruit Seed Extract. It adds great dimension to everything – a must try!
“With this tea we are proud to enter into an exciting new Fair Trade program with our organic Turmeric partners in Madagascar.” And that’s why I love Numi – their focus on sustainability is exceptional and noticeable in their teas. This holiday season, end your nights of drinking & eating by slowly sipping on any of their turmeric teas, my current favorite being Fields of Gold. Chamomile and lemon myrtle add to this tea a touch of sweetness, plus turmeric is know for it’s health benefits specifically to the liver.
On big holidays, I like to start my mornings with a delicious and filling smoothie that will carry me all the way to lunch! Using this hazelnut chocolate beverage as my base makes sure that my morning smoothie is decadent while still being healthy. My current favorite flavors with this include frozen raspberries, bananas, and a dollop of peanut butter for added nuttiness!
“Native to India, Moringa has been used worldwide to combat malnutrition. It is a nutritionally complex whole food naturally abundant in vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Moringa is considered one of the most complete, nutrientdense plants on Earth.” I’ve been adding it to my smoothies and it certainly gives me sustained energy throughout the day!

“The Original SooFoo® is a multi-grain and lentil blend of 9 ingredients with 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per serving. SooFoo® is Certified Organic, Kosher, Vegan and USA grown.” Plus, it’s one of my favorite things to make during Sunday prep for the week – making a bag or two of this and keeping it refrigerated makes for quick meals all throughout the week! Top with your favorite grilled meats or fish, or even roasted vegetables and you’ve got a complete meal.
