5 Ways to Avoid the Holiday Bloat

The holidays are just around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. I love the holidays because I get to hang with my family and connect over good food. Over the past couple years I was so sick and tired of becoming bloated after a big holiday dinner that I’ve become more aware of my actions.

Ways to Eat Raw Food This Summer

Summertime is here and it may be hotter than usual, even though it’s sometimes hard to tell when living in Hawaii! No one likes to use their oven or stove when it’s hot out, and one great way to beat the heat is by enjoying raw foods.

Treat Yo’ Self

March is Women’s History Month, nationally highlighting the contributions of women to events in history and society. This is a month for we women to treat ourselves!  Treating yourself can be as simple as just taking some time to yourself, reading your favorite book, getting a facial or hair treatment, going on a picnic with friends, taking a walk, baking cookies, watching the sunset, taking a bubble bath (my fav.), taking a nap, or watching a movie.

Here are some recipes for homemade face and hair masks:

Christmas is Just Around the Corner

Christmas is just around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited. Christmas to me means spending quality time with family and friends, making crafts, and drinking hot cocoa. My absolute favorite thing about Christmas is seeing everyone’s decorations inside and outside of their homes.

I am Grateful

With Thanksgiving approaching, everyone will soon be taking time to acknowledge what they’re grateful for. I am grateful for many things, but one thing that stands out to me the most is my puppy Mango. I recently rescued a puppy from the Humane Society. Going to the Humane Society or any rescue agency is probably one of the saddest things ever, but also rewarding in many different ways.

Giving back to our Community

This past March, a group of Down to Earth Team Members (including myself) dedicated some time to volunteering at Green Rows Farm, a special place nestled under the Ko’olaus in beautiful Waimanalo, Oahu. The farm is managed and cared for by Sean Anderson and a group of young farmers all dedicated to regenerative practices, excited by Oahu’s local food movement, and enthusiastic about getting dirty, having fun, and growing delicious food. Every Wednesday Green Rows Farm invites the public to help out on their farm.
