Yes To Fruits and Veggies

Yes To Fruits and Veggies

I am guilty.  That’s right.  Guilty.  I am guilty of completely being gluttonous and indulgent in those tempting and beautifully decorated displays of sweets that seem to be the center of every shower, special event, or gathering.  Each one, found on every blog (even this one), is usually a magnificent color scheme to fit a specific well-thought out party theme.  There are beautifully designed signs and labels and banners, a variety of apothecary jars filled with candy, and matching platters with cookies and cakes… SO GOOD (and pretty too)!

Now that I am a parent, I have to make smart choices not only for myself but for my child.  Don’t get me wrong, I will STILL have my sweets table at my parties but it just may be a small one.  I decided to put a post together showing ways to display healthy fruits and veggie crudité for your next party as an alternative to the sweets table (or at least an addition) to help live a greener and healthier life. Here goes…

We all do it…use recyclable bags, wear Tom’s, try to take quick showers…basically taking small steps to live a greener life. Well, here are three more tips for you (and your family) to try!

1) Use water and vinegar to clean your windows (instead of Windex)

2) Bring a coffee cup on your next run

3) Start using natural skin and hair care products (try Yes To, a line full of natural treats – like fruits and veggies)!

A GIANT thank you to Yes To for sponsoring today’s post!
