Luckily my mom already had plenty of toilet paper, but we had a very limited supply of hand sanitizer. Scouring the usual online sources for the usual brands of hand sanitizer had me coming up empty handed. Then I recalled an online store my mom ordered from once around Christmas.
***Grove Collaborative specialize in amazing natural products.
They carry everything from hand soaps to multi-surface cleaners, to toilet paper and yes, hand sanitizer. I placed an order for this wonderful sounding hand sanitizer gel in blood orange scent with moisturizing coconut oils. I also ordered sanitizing hand wipes, some sanitizing spray cleansers, walnut scrubber sponges and a palm fiber scrubber. All the products were excellent. The Hand Sanitizer and the Palm Fiber Scrubber (for fruits and veggies, it’s the bomb) are now new favorites that I will be buying long after the quarantine is over.
***Thanks to experiencing a Cleanse and learning to incorporate smoothies in my diet with GLO’s, Grace Van Berkum, I learned about the products and companies below:
Sun Warrior Protein powder that is easily ordered on Amazon is another new favorite. Both chocolate and vanilla are excellent. This is an organic plant-based protein powder that is a great base for easy to make smoothies, that are delicious and super healthy to support the daily stress of this difficult and uncertain time.
Navitas Organics Plant-based Superfoods have added further nutrition and flavor to my daily smoothies. They still have a great 40% off sale, and I tried all of the following products: hemp hearts, Vanilla and Greens powder, chia seeds, cacao butter, cacao nibs and cacao powder, coconut palm sugar and cacao hemp organic almonds. Cacao hemp organic almonds are a new delicious favorite snack! I'll surely be buying these again.
This great company and their products are new to me, and I’m so glad that Grace pointed me in their direction. Along with Sun Warrior Protein, I’ve been boosting my mom's and my immune systems daily with these great products.
The Coronavirus doesn't stand a chance!
Trying the many, sure to please, GLO recipes that Grace has created leads to delicious success.
For me, I create a new recipe daily for Mom and me. It is fun to experiment. Below is the recipe from one of the yummy Smoothies I made:
1.5 scoops Sun Warrior Protein Vanilla
1/2 frozen banana
1 small avocado
Small Handful of spinach leaves
Good sized Handful of almonds (soaked overnight - skin still on)
1 tbsp hemp hearts
6 oz (I used almond or coconut) milk and 4-6 oz water
Blend in a Vita Mix or high powered blender. We have an Osterizer Commercial blender, and it works fine.
I’d encourage you to try these companies and products. I’m sold on the quality and service that I received and what a pleasant surprise to find new favorites at a time like this while quarantined indoors.
Be safe, stay healthy and keep social distancing - it is working!
Loving Life and Living Love,
