A trip to the healthfood store

We went to the health food store yesterday and we had so much fun exploring. The store we went to incorporated foods, household & hygiene products, supplements, vitamins, natural remedies and local handmade products all packed into one store. Look at the goodies we bought... My guy said that this was an early birthday present for me! My goodies included a dry brush, cacao butter, spirulina, and bee pollen.

We also bought ourselves some treats....raw bars :) Yummy!

Not seen in the picture was coconut water. I still am getting adjusted to the taste of young coconut water. I enjoy it mixed with a juice or smoothie, but the more I try it on it's own the more I am liking it. Sort of.

I tried the spirulina in a green juice this morning and it was great! I wasn't sure if it was going to taste like it smells, but I can happily say it did not.

Spirulina Green Juice
2-3 apples
1/2 Lemon
Big handful of Leafy Greens
1 Cucumber

Juice it up! Add 1 tsp of Spirulina to the juice, and mix. It made the juice a nice dark green color, so pretty!

I will update if I start noticing some of the benefits. This morning I was very sleepy, until I had my juice. Now I have a ton of energy bursting from my toes to my nose, so I could be seeing a benefit already :)

Mmmm, best looking juice! And so simple. And with Spirulina, it's a complete meal!

There is just so much at health food stores... I find myself getting into trouble since I tend to want to try out every new thing I can find. Although, I must say, your purchases are great! Cacao, spirulina, and bee pollen make for great starts with excellent dessert endings!

Thanks Lori :) I know what you mean about getting into trouble...our bill started getting expensive fast. I had to stop picking out things I wanted to try out and it was so hard!
