Raw Chocolate at 30% off! (Valentine’s Gift)

Perfect Valentine’s Day gift at 30% off here: This tasty organic dark raw chocolate by Lulu’s Chocolate is not only healthy and sustainable, but it’s also fair trade and sourced from small family farms. Chocolate comes from the cacao trees, which give the cacao beans, and in order to get raw chocolate, they sun dry the beans instead of toasting them. Did you know that raw chocolate is healthy for you? It is full of antioxidants, minerals and magnesium. Magnesium helps lower blood pressure and increase brain activity. And I forgot to mention, chocolate is one of the oldest aphrodisiacs known to man! If this Valentine’s Day you’ve someone special to spend time with, I highly recommend getting one of them. It would also help to know that Lulu’s Chocolate goes even further in terms of helping our environment, their inner packaging is made out of biodegradable materials and the outer packaging is made with recycled paper and printed on soy based ink. Also, all their marketing materials are printed on recycled paper and soy ink. They are anywhere from 50% to 78% dark chocolate. And they also are sweetened with low glycemic coconut sugar, I don’t think there are better alternatives out there). There are six flavors to choose from (or you can get a box with all of them, it’s what they wisely call the love pack): Aztec Crunch, Chocolate Maca Chunk, Coconut Cin, Maca Green, Maca Love Bar, Rare Heirloom and the Raw Love Bar. All of the ingredients are on the product

Have a Green New Year!

Get the reusable bottles here: How to green your New Year? In 2011 you’ll see how easy it is to go green, here I give you three basic tips and every one of them is fairly easy to implement. Some are more expensive than others, but all tips are for all budgets! The first tip is to start shopping at your local farmers’ market, it’s not only much healthier for you but also your food has traveled only a few miles to get to you rather than thousands of miles coming from the other side of the planet. Also, when your fruits and veggies have to travel that much, they are harvested unripe, which means that most nutrients haven’t even formed yet, quite different from your farmers’ market fruits and veggies that are usually harvested the day before and are full of nutrients that we need. The second tip is to get a reusable water bottle, reusable shopping bag and reusable coffee mug. Most coffee shops will give you a .10 to .25 cents discount when you bring your own reusable mug, which can add up to several dollars throughout the year. Your own reusable bag because you can take hundreds of plastic bags from going to landfills, it’s also becoming a trend for cities to forbid plastic bags (such as San Francisco), plus some places are starting to charge for plastic bags! The third tip is to spend some money on yourself this year. Try to get at least one thing that’s significant enough that can make a big impact in your body. For example it could be an organic mattress

From biodegradable trash bags to compost bags, to dog bags and even a small kitchen compost bin that I love and use for my fruits and veggies scraps. Their prices are relatively affordable, the dog bags for example, are selling for about .99 for a box of 50, which means you’re paying .10 cents per bag. If you can, why not? And if you can compost, why wouldn’t you?
