On the east coast we are sweltering in the July heat! As a busy mom to 3 kids the soaring temperatures can be so draining, especially by dinner time. Thankfully, I have the opportunity to try a Savesta 4-pack of energy vitamins to beat the heat! This amazing combination of supplements produced in the USA are manufactured without toxic chemicals. Safe for Vegan consumption as well, Savesta products use wild-crafted herbs. These herbs which are harvested in such a way that the mother plants grown in the wild are undisturbed. I don’t know about you, but it encourages me to know that Savesta is a company that operates with integrity and care not only for the consumer, but for the environment as well.
Let’s a take a closer look at this winning combination of energizing supplements used to beat summer’s heat!
Ashwagandha: (Indian Ginseng) used for centuries, helps manage normal daily stress, promotes relaxation & a more restful sleep, helps boost the immune system Triphala: promotes normal blood pressure and blood circulation, effective in relieving occasional digestive disorders, especially useful with summertime travel Mangosteen: a superior antioxidant, helps boost energy and the immune system; Savesta Mangosteen is standardized to provide consistent levels of xanthones, tannins, and flavonoids.

Healthy Kids are Happy Kids
As we wrap up the summer season and move towards the fall, i’m on my mind immediately goes into back to school mode. I don’t know about you, but as soon as my children get in the car after school the first thing they want is a snack. It used to be easy for me to just give them something quick and easy (which is a nice way if saying “junk food”). But now that I’ve been doing the afterschool homework crash for a few years I realize that setting them up with a healthy snack after school before doing homework is the only way to go! I have found that the more appealing the snack, the less resistance I have. For us, a bento box style has been the best compromise between convenience and healthy fun. Arranging the vivaNUTRITION® bars in a bento box in a way that is fun works not only for “in the car” snacks on the go, but for a quick and easy lunch ideas as well. Who doesn’t need quick and easy lunch ideas?! Healthy eating habits start young, and if you can make healthy eating fun then you’re healthy kids will be happy kids!
vivaNUTRITION® has got snack time covered with bars that make kids happy and healthy. vivaNUTRITION® Super Fiber Chia Bars are made from 100% natural ingredients and contain both chia and oats. Each bar is divided into four squares. That makes taking quick bites of something healthy even easier!

The stage is set. It is time to make a day that your mermaid princess will love. I thought that over the years the best memories were ones we created ourselves. That is why I always like to create parties for my daughter. You can make these mermaid crowns for the guests to wear at the party. You can have the crown to use as a party favor. You can even use them for table decor.
I also thought they would make a great table centerpiece. The truth is making these crowns will make your party unique and special just like your guest of honor.

I am always looking for great tasting recipes that don’t use sugar, as well as a recipe my little one can help with. I am in love with the all natural sweetener Xylitol, not only is it a great one for one substitution for sugar but it always has great dental benefits as well. The great thing about making banana bread is that it is something everyone in the family can participate in–it is just pouring ingredients mixing, and my personal favorite part, mashing the bananas! These are all things that can be fun for your little ones to do and makes it easy for them to participate. Even my little one year old loved that she got to help me mix and mash in this recipe. So here it is–I adapted a few different banana bread recipes to get to my liking, and remember any time you want to use xylitol as a substitute for sugar it is one for one, so you don’t even have to mess with different measurements. This makes it a very simple and quick substitution.
