A new mom’s dream: a box of organic produce, delivered to her door, without having to think about it.

Have you heard of Imperfect Produce? They just recently started delivering to our zip code and I am hooked. We get a small box every other week and you can customize what’s inside a few days before your delivery. It’s simple and easy, as well as a great way to get more produce into your your rotation. The “imperfections” vary but are hardly noticeable, like size or shape. We’re hooked! Get $10 off your first box with this link here.

DIY LA CROIX

La Croix is having a moment. It is everywhere. People (including myself) cannot get enough. When I realized both how much I was spending at Costco regarding this habit and how much the cans were piling up in the recycling, I thought, this can't be the best thing for my wallet or the environment.

I did a little research into it, and I realized the amount of cans I thought I was being so good about by recycling weren't actually doing the earth any favors (greenhouse gases, energy in production, toxic emissions, and so forth). Of course, in the question of recycling vs. not recycling, recycling is always better, but not having to recycle at all is best.

That, plus the trace amount of BPA were enough to make me look into other options.

So, enter DIY La Croix. I researched sparkling water machines and went with this one by Soda Stream. There are so many models, but I liked that this one doesn't plug into the wall and the reviews were good. There are other models that are automated for light to strong bubbles, but I like being able to control that myself. You can see a comparison chart here. This one isn't either the most expensive or the least. You can enjoy it as is, or if you miss the extra taste boost you can add these flavors essences - which, similarly to La Croix, have no added real or artificial sugar, just a slight flavor.

Cheers to your health and the environment!

CAULIFLOWER SCRAMBLE

I shared this recipe on my stories yesterday and wanted to highlight it here too. It's an easy, healthy, delicious lunch. I used to use quinoa, but since Trader Joe's came out with a fresh riced cauliflower, I used that instead to get an extra dose of vegetables (and to make it completely grain free!) Minus the cheese it's Whole 30 approved as well.

CAULIFLOWER SCRAMBLE

+ riced cauliflower (buy fresh or frozen, or make your own)

+ greens (I used arugula, could also use spinach and/or kale)

+ 2-3 eggs

+ goat cheese

+ shaved parmesan

+ lime

+ salt

+ everything seasoning

Start by sautéing the riced cauliflower in olive oil. Add greens, cook until wilted. Add eggs, scramble with everything. Add cheeses until melted. Add more greens at the end if you want. Top with a generous squeeze of lime + sea salt + everything seasoning. Enjoy! Simple, easy, fresh, healthy.
