Started off the Fall season in the best way we knew how! We took advantage of the beautiful weather and headed off to have lunch in Central Park. It doesn’t get any more picture perfect than this! With all of our favorite snacks present and lots of lemonade, we enjoyed the company of one another! Tons of laughs, polaroids taken, and popcorn fights were had. What better way to spend a cool, crisp afternoon in New York City? I think we all agreed that there truly couldn’t have been a dreamier picnic. It was straight out of a story book! We even had other people stop by to take photos of the beautiful spread!

Time spent with friends is never wasted!

What snacks would you bring to your picnic?

Gotta snap a Polaroid or it didn’t happen. amiright?

Take a look at our spread! Name something prettier. I’ll wait…

These pretzels were HUGE! They were made for sharing. And so are laughs! We encourage you to get outside with your family and friends and enjoy the new season. Happy Fall!

Who doesn’t love a cup of warm hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day? Our most favorite winter beverage is easier than ever to make from scratch right in your kitchen. And trust us, this will taste far better than any store bought mix. Plus, it is SO easy! So easy, you probably already have all the ingredients in your home! Let’s get started!

Supplies:

  1. 3-3.5 cups of sugar
  2. 1.5 tablespoons of salt
  3. 2 1/4 cups of cocoa powder
  4. Milk per serving
  5. Your favorite mug
  6. Friends to share it with 🙂

We used a big mason jar to store our mix in.

Start by adding in a cup of sugar. Then a cup of cocoa. Then, your next cup of sugar and so on. We made a pattern with the cups of sugar and cocoa just for looks, however you can just dump it all in together if you’d like.

Next comes the salt.

And now for the marshmallows to top it off!

If you want a peppermint spin to it, simply drop one into your mixture.

Mix the ingredients together. Scoop 1.5 spoon fulls into a cup of milk. Warm the milk on the stovetop or in the microwave. Enjoy!

A healthy lifestyle is so crucial. What most people don’t know is that being healthy doesn’t have to be hard. Don’t be overwhelmed- you can take small steps in the right direction. It’s good for the body to get in exercise on a regular basis. But most of us know that energy is much needed to take on any sort of physical activity. Going to your local grocery store to pick out a few protein bars can be good and all, but those tend to have a lot of hidden sugars and artificial fillers. So, instead we decided to make our own! An organic power bar filled with a ton of nutrients to give you the energy you need!

Ingredients:

-3 cups of organic granola cereal. (We chose a ceral that not only had granola, but wheat flakes, sliced almonds and sun-dried fruit!)

-1/2 cup of organic crunchy peanut butter (or any nut butter you prefer)

-1/2 cup of pure, organic honey

-1/2 cup of chocolate chips (go ahead and freeze these to keep them from totally melting when ready to add to your mix)
