Get Local Produce Delivered!

I have to promote this fabulous CSA! Farm fresh veggies delivered to your door and there is even an option to get bread. The nice thing about this CSA (besides delivery) is that you don’t have to sign up for the whole year or pay all at once. I have been ordering a bushel and suspending delivery every other week. This is what fits in my budget and my household. You can suspend service at any time, change the size of delivery, etc. And they send an email a few days before so you know exactly what you are getting PLUS they send a recipe for every item. Wonderful wonderful service. I cannot say enough fabulous things. I have never had an issue but when I’ve emailed with a question I received a reply the same day, within hours of my email. I recommend this service to anyone in the DC/MD area (they may go farther, check out the link to be sure). If you do sign up, say Martini Dozier sent you  - you’ll save some cash and so will I! :)

Dawn, listen to me. Listen. I love you. I will always love you.
But this is the work that I have to do.
Tell Giles… tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I’m okay.
And give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now. You have to take care of each other. You have to be strong.

Dawn, the hardest thing in this world… is to live in it.
Be brave. Live. For me.”

Let’s talk smoothies

Lately I’ve been into smoothies in a big way. Some may say it’s an obsession, but at least it’s a healthy one. I’ve replaced regular breakfast with one every day and I feel fuller longer, plus they are so yummy and I can take them out the door with me if need be. I’m going to start posting some of my favorite recipes that I’ve either come across online or made up on my own. With that being said, I’ll start with the lovely creation I had this morning. I don’t know nutritional break down. However smoothie recipes are very forgiving, it’s so easy to substitute another veggie, another fruit, even a different type of milk. So without further ado, I bring you…

Kale Pineapple Smoothie!

Isn’t it a lovely shade of green? Yep, that surprised me too. Here’s how I made it:

1/2 c coconut milk

3/4 c pineapple (I used canned crushed pineapple because that’s what I had but it would be more healthy & probably more yummy with real pineapple)

1 c kale

1/2 frozen banana

Blend, blend, blend! (No ice required)

This has a very tropical feel.

Let me add that I rarely measure so you may get a little more than a big glass full, but if you have someone at home with you they will love this too.

You could replace the kale with spinach and the coconut milk with almond milk. It will still include a superfood and still be delicious.

I hope you try it and love it as much as I do.

Brush, Whiten, Go!

I received this from Influenster for free to provide a test and product review.

My teeth are not terribly stained, but I do drink coffee semi-regularly so I want to get a jump on any issues. First of all this is SO MUCH easier than those strips. You really do brush, whiten and go. No rinsing, no waiting, it’s that easy.

For best results do the following:

start by brushing with Colgate Optic White toothpaste. It has a pleasant flavor and will leave your teeth sparkly.

Give the whitening pen a couple clicks to get it started (once product has reached the top it takes approximately 2 clicks for top row of teeth and 2 for bottom, but I found a little goes a long way).

Swipe the whitening pen on your teeth. Top teeth, bottom teeth, all around.

Smile! you are finished and able to go about your day. It adds seconds to your normal toothbrush routine.

My teeth felt cleaner and looked whiter after just a few days.

I don’t find it necessary to use this product continuously. I’ll probably use it once a month or so to help in between professional cleanings.

I would recommend this. The price is a little steep (between $10-$15 for toothbrush and whitening pen), but not when you compare it to other teeth whitening systems.

If you are looking for a quick, easy, inexpensive way to whiten your teeth, try this…

Brush, Whiten, GO!
