Now that we’ve wrapped up the year and beginning anew, it’s a good time for a fresh start. That means getting back to healthy foods and healthy routines again. 

Ginger & Mango team up to provide a healthy smoothie with a little bit of kick! Spicy Mango Tango Smoothie is V & GF.

Smoothies are a good thing and a great way to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables we eat.  Too many of us look to the next best fad diet instead of what's right in front of us.  Instead of low carb, calorie counting, magic pill taking or using a special wrap, it really comes down to simplicity. Eat simple, real foods, mostly plants!  That's why I love this new ebook called 40 Days of Green Smoothies by Becky Striepe.  It's the perfect companion to do just that!

  Have you fallen in love with a Latte yet? Maybe you like a caffè latte.  Bold coffee, mixed with steamed or scalded milk. OR, maybe you are more of the tea latte, fan.  Rich, espresso-free tea with swirls of heated milk. Either way, you can't really go wrong, however, I have a favorite and I typically never stray.  "Soy Chai Tea Latte, extra hot, no water, please".  It's like a drinking a little bit of Happy. SO when I tell you that this post is NOT about a Chai Tea Latte, I'm kinda cheating on my first love because I'm going to share with you how to make a Matcha Tea Latte, right from home! Now, I know what you are thinking, "make your latte at home, that's absurd.  I mean, do you see everything they have to do before handing us those cups filled with wonder from the Starbucks counter"? Typically, I would tell you how correct you are, BUT, you don't need any of those things!  Honest.

Deliciously dairy-free Hot Cocoa mix, perfect for 1 mug or 10. Top 8 free & vegan
Deliciously rich, hot cocoa mix. Top 8 free "Ohhhhhh, the weather outside is frightful....but this Cocoa's so delightful,,,,." To be perfectly honest, the weather outside is B-E-A-U-tiful  (60 degrees and only 5 days away from Christmas) & the Cocoa is still so delightful but this doesn't make for a great song, does it? Regardless of the unseasonably warm weather, December holiday festivities have continued, the latest event being the showing of The Polar Express at my son's school that included a special delivery of Hot Chocolate for their viewing. I'm pretty sure most parents wouldn't even blink at hearing that but for us Food Allergy Mom's, it's a completely different story, and thankfully, my son has a teacher who called and gave me a "heads up".

Cup of PSLHappy Fall Ya'll or should I say Happy PSL Ya'll?  The kids have barely been back to school and the leaves have yet to turn colors, but with the official return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, I can safely say Fall has returned.   If you are reading this post, then you are probably one of MANY that squealed with joy, tweeted your excitement and posted selfies holding this favorite seasonal coffee drink.  You can admit, I've seen the photos!
