Rango Smoothie (Raspberries & Mango) Created by Jesica

My favorite way to consume lots of nutrients in a short amount of time is to make a smoothie and throw in all kinds of goodies. I made one this morning that was very tasty, satisfying, and nutritious.

Here’s what in it: (measurements do not have to be exact- adjust them to your liking!)

1 ripe mango

1 handful of frozen raspberries (fresh is better if you have them on hand)

1 cup almond milk

1 Tbsp flax seeds

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp hemp protein powder (you can substitute another protein powder you have on hand)

2 Drops of stevia to add an extra touch of sweetness

Blend & slurp! 🙂

Conscious Box!

I haven’t been this excited in a while to recieve something I ordered online. This box full of goodies is called a “Conscious Box.” It comes once a month to subscribers and is packed full of samples of pure and sustainable products that are handpicked from businesses that care for the planet. Alot of these items are not found in your local store, so being able to try and experience these samples via a Conscious Box is a real treat! I just recieved my first one today and will get back to you all on the details of each product! In the mean-time, go order your first Conscious Box! 🙂

Never Hungover

Overall Rating: 3 Stars

About Never Hungover:

“NEVER HUNGOVER is an innovative and exciting hangover prevention drink that is set to revolutionize the category of beverages that claim to prevent or cure hangovers. NEVER HUNGOVER is a great tasting dietary supplement that is comprised of a natural vitamin blend, antioxidants, amino acids, nutrients, and minerals. It’s formula helps neutralize and process the toxins caused by alcohol in the liver and kidneys (known as acetaldehyde’s), by turning them into acetic acid which is flushed out of the body, thus drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. NEVER HUNGOVER is produced in America, and has zero carbs, calories, or sugars. It is also caffeine and gluten free.

NEVER HUNGOVER can be consumed as a shot or a mixer. The product is designed to take up to an hour before or while consuming alcohol. For optimal results, take one bottle of NEVER HUNGOVER per four drinks. Party Tonight and Feel Great Tomorrow only with Never Hungover.

Ingredients:

As we mention on our product page, the Never Hungover formula helps neutralizes and processes the toxins that are caused by alcohol in the liver and kidney’s known as acetaldehyde by turning them into acetic acid. Then, the acid is flushed out of the body drastically reducing the cause of a hangover. But what exactly do the specific natural ingredients of Never Hungover contribute to the success of the product? Let’s get into a few of the amazing ingredients of our natural formula…

Obviously, buying all these ingredients separately would cost you a fortune and carrying them around with you might require a new set of luggage. Never Hungover combines all of these amazing hangover preventing ingredients along with several other natural supplements into a great tasting lemon-lime drink that is available in a 2oz travel size bottle or 750ml bottle perfect for your home. The benefits of ingredients of Never Hungover don’t just stop at preventing your hangover, but don’t just take it from us, try it yourself!”

My Thoughts:

A a health enthusiast, I would say that drinking alcohol is acceptable at times but only in moderation. I personally save it for special occasions and such. You can even get your hands on organic wines or liquors that will help minimize the toxin overload that alcohol provides the body with. That said, on those occasions a product like this can come in handy to prevent having to pay for a fun night the next morning.

I like that the ingredients are naturally based, though they’re not organic.

In regards to effectiveness, I found these shots to be effective in preventing a headache the morning after drinking a few glasses of wine. Though the shots are recommended for every 4 drinks, I drink seldom, so two glasses of wine were sufficient for me to feel satisfied.

Back in college when I consumed more alcohol, I could have used a product like this. Again, while I don’t recommend drinking heavily, I see these Never Hungover shots as a healthier compliment to your fun night out that will make the morning brighter and more bearable.

Product of the Day – Dr. Bronner’s Magic Hair Rinse

Dr. Bronner’s Magic “All-In-One” Organic Shikakai Conditioning Hair Rinse

Contains: Organic Lemon Juice, Organic Shikakai Powder, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Orange Oil

Description: Organic Shikakai [“Shee-kah-kye”] powder comes from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acacia Concinna, and is widely used in India for soft shiny hair. Organic lemon juice, used traditionally in the west, rinses and tightens hair shafts for excellent manageability. Organic coconut, olive and hemp fatty acids moisturize for luxuriant hair.

This stuff truly is magical! So pure and so nourishing, it is one of the best hair products I’ve ever bought. I have long hair that gets easily tangled amidst my active lifestyle and workouts. This rinse makes everything better–no more tangles–soft nourished hair with a lovely fresh and citrusy scent. Dr. Bronner’s suggests diluting it because it is very rich–but I just use a little in the palm of my hand and it is just enough. Remember to apply starting at the ends of your hair to avoid getting your roots too oily. For extra moisturizing, use this in combination with a conditioner (Aubrey Organics makes my favorite conditioners).
