Friday Favorites: Watermelon Yogurt, Organic Bed Sheets and More

IMG_6294

Well, I survived my “cleanse” from all sugar. I cut it down to a week because I felt it did what I needed it to do. Now that I can bring a bit back in, I tried Chobani’s new limited watermelon flavor and love it! You should try it-add some freshly cut watermelon slices to it for even more watermelon goodness.

 

My Friday Favs For The Week:

I’m not sure why, but I like green food. A green shake? I’m there! Some green tea cookies? Yum! Okay, now I would have to draw the line at a “green hamburger” but, green ice cream?

YESSSSSS!!

I hear it’s going to be a hot one this weekend, so make you some green tea ice cream , Girlfriend!

Organic Bedding

We spend, on average, between five to nine hours in our bed sheets, exposing us to many chemicals. Non-organic cotton is sprayed with large amounts of chemical fertilizers and pesticides that are not only damaging to the environment, but to your health as well. So, toss the old ones out and invest in a pair of 100% organic cotton sheets, no fabric blends. Try these fabulous organic cotton sheets by Boll & Branch. Don’t worry about them not feeling soft-they are heaven! If you are not into cotton, organic silk or bamboo are other safe options.
