Sometimes in life things get icky. And stressful. And blah. And the only fix, no matter how much you think otherwise, is to calm down, take a break, and take care of yourself, body mind and spirit. And these some-times call for some-delicious goods that speak to wellness and refreshment (do I sound like a yoga instructor or what?).

No fancy recipe – no laborious instructions. Goji berries for antioxidants, olive oil for your heart, coconut because – hell, everyone wants to think they’re drinking a pina colada ALL THE TIME.

This one is is a little spa session for your body AND tastebuds. Make, eat, and, enjoy.
