You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl. At least that’s what I’m going to tell myself when I’m sitting on my ride-on lawn mower cutting the grass!
We sold our downtown condo in the city and bought a new house with 2.5 acres. Yup, I’m moving to the country! Well, it’s 45 minutes north of the city, but it’s going to be a big change. I’m excited though!
I’ll finally have the organic vegetable garden I’ve always wanted and I’ll finally be able to plant herbs and flowers. The best part? I get to redecorate! We don’t move in until the end of August so we’ll be splitting our time between my parent’s house in Newmarket and the cottage in Quebec.
Enough about me and back to the health tips. Here are a few things I’m loving right now:
365 Citrus Grapefruit Body Lotion
This lotion is full of amazing all-natural oils and has a subtle citrus scent. The best part: a big bottle is only $3.99! I bought it at Whole Foods, but you may be able to find it at another health food store.
Mineral Fusion Nail Polish
I love a bright nail polish on my toes throughout the year, but nail polish isn’t very good for you. It contains a chemical called DIBUTYL PHTHALATE, which can be toxic and may interfere with hormone function. It’s also harmful to fish and other wildlife. Instead of giving up nail polish all together, why not try some of the great all-natural brands out there? I like Mineral Fusion. It lasts as long as regular nail polish and is available in a variety of awesome colors.
Naturally gluten-free and grown in Canada, wild rice is higher in protein than brown rice and has a nutty flavor as well as a satisfying chewy texture. It’s a bit pricier than brown rice and quinoa, but it’s a nice treat!
Developed by Dr. Ayala, this refreshing, organic, all natural beverage is the perfect summer mocktail. It comes in a variety of unique flavors like “Lemongrass Mint” and “Cinnamon Orange Peel.” It’s available at health food stores but it’s also available at Winners for a better price ($4.99/bottle). http://www.herbalwater.com/
