October Theme: Healthy Living
We’re on the downward slope to 2015: Halloween to New Year’s Eve in the blink of an eye.
Whether holidays make us feel happy or depressed; whether we’re alone or surrounded by family and friends, this time of year is all about indulging. And OVER indulging.
That’s why I’m highlighting healthy living as a theme for October — how to stay healthy during the holiday season — to hopefully plant a little seed to help us (me) remember to make healthy choices all year — but especially now with the temptation to snack on too many Halloween candies or imbibe too many Pina Coladas. A little balance is a good thing.
FYI: Did you know that an average Pina Colada has 525 calories? That’s MAJOR, and who just has one, am I right?
I’d like to introduce everyone to Garden of Life and Kind Organics.
I was lucky enough to meet representatives from Garden of Life at BlogHer 14.
SO impressed with the company mission:
Garden of Life was founded to help empower others to attain extraordinary health. This is our mission at Garden of Life and the principles behind this mission are carried out by Garden of Life’s innovative health and wellness regimens.
I’ll focus specifically on each Garden of Life product throughout the month, along with a couple of recipes I’ve created.
From the Garden of Life website:
Please join us for a moment in picturing a world where good health is a given, not a matter of chance. In this imagined world, chronic obesity is no longer a problem and couples never rely on fertility drugs to conceive.
The 4,000 people we lose prematurely every day to cancer, diabetes and heart disease would still be with us. And when we do contract an illness, we are not dependent on “drug-care,” but are instead able to take control of our own health with lifestyle changes and advanced nutrition.
At Garden of Life, we believe such a world is possible, and that together, we can make it happen.
I’ve probably tried most of the vitamins and supplements out there in the marketplace, and I’m honestly delighted by the quality of the products.
They’re organic and many are non-GMO Project Verified.
