 I love Sea Buckthorn.

While shopping for my groceries at my favorite natural food store,

I found a new product line.

I decided to try some.

I did some research.
I fell in love.

I have begun my Sea Buckthorn treatments.
Lovely face cream and the liquid suppliment tastes great.

My son called and told me all about the delicious healing power
I have now added a teaspoon of coconut oil to my morning coffee
 along with a cinnamon stick and rice milk.
I use a coconut face wash and I love toasted coconut
 in just about anything.
Some time ago I began using coconut crystals for my
sweetner needs.

The crystals are soft and dissolve quickly.
They do not have a coconut flavor.

Coconut milk is wonderful to steam vegetables in
and makes a nice sauce base.
I am head over heels wild for the good coconut.

My new favorite juice is wonderful as a sauce
or drizzled over lettuce.
Plus it is a perfect afternoon picker upper.

I also enjoy the Very Veggie juice blend R.W. Knudesen makes.
I use the low sodium one.
I like these juices.
 They come in glass bottles that I can recycle.
A glass of Very Veggie is delicious with a celery stick.

These berries looked very interesting.

I shall add them to my trail mix.
My research has sold me on their  health benefits.
As in all things moderation and balance is the key to good health.

A tablespoon a day has made a huge difference
 in my digestion.

I like to support companies that help the wildlife.

I spend lots of time reading when I shop.

I have become very picky about my food.
I am aware of different companies and their fair trade practices.

I use Surface hair products.
The Baba oil I use morning and night on my hair.
Just a tiny bit, pea size, is all I need.
Surface appears to be a wonderful company.
I use some Eminence skin care.
This is very nice firming cream I use on the spider veins on my legs.

I have fallen in love with the taste of fresh red beets

and red kale.

I keep falling in love.
Mother Nature keeps providing suitors.

Did you see the PBS program a few nights on food choices? Michael Pollan was one of the presenters - we all need to be more aware of what we eat. Flash back to the 60's quote: "You are what you eat."

Those products look "yummy" - skin and nourishment - staying healthy is the goal!

wonderful choices...i think we were always supposed to be in love with the natural things. they are made by our Creator who knows us best.
reading the contents of our food has got to be just what we do these days...there are so many choices and we can make the better ones.
happy april, my friend.

We call coconut oil VCO or short for virgin coconut oil. I give a teaspoon to my dogs too since they are senior dogs but they are so active! VCO is also good for insect bites, face and body moisturizer (they blend well), insect repellent, and also for those varicose veins!
