I absolutely love smoothies! They are a quick and convenient way to boost your health at any time of the day. You can squeeze in a solid source of fruit, veggies, antioxidants, nutrients, etc in one punch. An added bonus is that by it all being blended in a smoothie, it makes it that much easier for our bodies to digest. Here's a smoothie recipe I like to use when I need an afternoon pick-me-up, an energy boost before (or after) the gym or just a delicious snack.
Today I'm excited to share with you my review of the CurlBox Natural I recently received featuring Obia Naturals! If you're not already familiar with CurlBox, it is a monthly subscription box filled with goodies for curly hair (and sometimes body products). Every so often, they have special, non-subscription boxes that you can order to receive great products in a discounted bundle.
This particular box is the last of their CurlBox Natural series. Here's why they are ending this particular series (from their email): "When curlBOX Natural launched 6 years ago, the idea was to feature under-the-radar brands without a large reach that featured all natural ingredients. Our mission has been accomplished and healthy, quality products are no longer an exception but the norm! Thanks to social media and word of mouth, previously small brands are creating demand to land on your favorite store shelves. For the final curlBOXNatural, we’re featuring a line that perfectly represents this shift—Obia Naturals (@obianaturals)."
Slowly but surely, the days are getting longer which means spring is just around the corner! However, we are still in winter and the cold weather makes me crave my favorite warming foods and beverages. One of these is hot chocolate. Being plant-based, I enjoy making my own hot chocolate from scratch versus using a pre-packaged one. Not only does this allow you to have more control over the ingredients, but it’s cost effective (you may already have some of the basic ingredients at home), simple and pretty quick to make!
