Do you want to maintain a healthy and balanced diet without limiting the amount of pesticide residue on your foods? Don’t we all! Well, the best option is to grow your own food at home naturally, all you need is a nice little patch of soil or a sunny place for potted plants. Additionally, this will help trim down on your food expenses while encouraging less food waste, as you can just pick what you need and let the rest grow and look pretty.
I love to juice fresh raw organic fruits, herbs and vegetables. During the winter months I do not do it so much but during the warmer part of the year when our vegetable garden upstate is blooming, I juice a lot! It is a great way to get your daily dosage of fruit and veggies right off the bat and a wonderful way to start the day. I like to throw whatever produce we have in the house into the Juicer (including scraps like apple cores and kale stalks), and hope for the best! For my little boy I have to be more predictable like giving him mango or carrot juice… you know, keep it simple or else he will not drink it.
If you are looking for a beautiful outdoor activity to connect your Little One with a better understanding of nature, look no further than some dirt and seeds. Yes, it is that easy!
Gardening is a wonderful messy way to involve children in a healthy and enlightening hobby. Starting with the excitement of choosing the plants you will grow together – veggies, flowers, herbs and flowers. Next up, preparing the earth for planting, and before long you will be harvesting your woes while enjoying a special meal together……… which is one of the most rewarding family experiences ever!!!
