It’s celebration time! April 22nd is Earth Day
and that means that we have the chance to honor our magnificent planet and the awe-inspiring natural beauty that abounds all around us. Even though we have this special holiday to help remind us to celebrate the Earth, we all need to remember that Earth day is every day!
That’s why we’ve come up with this list of ways to enjoy memorialize our planet while also taking care of our bodies, each and every day of the week…
Celebrate Earth Day Organically
Eating wholesome and healthy food that comes straight from the Earth to our tables is a great way to celebrate our planet. When we eat organic foods, we’re not only helping our bodies by leaving out chemicals and preservatives, we’re also keeping our world green for the same reason! Whether you love salty fare or a sweet treat, there are some amazing recipes out there to help you eat organically.
: If you’re in a rush in the morning but still want to start your day off right, try the Kickstart Smoothie
, which is not only delicious but super healthy, thanks to the coconut and goji berries, and as a bonus, this organic breakfast choice packs some amazing anti-inflammatory and immunity boosting powers.
: Even if you’re eating at your desk, you can still get full and satisfied with a White Bean and Spinach Salad
, thanks to the fiber and protein found in the beans and the big flavor in the red onion and Dijon dressing in this powerhouse of an organic lunchtime favorite.
Snack: Looking for a quick bite while on the go? Try an Organic Roasted Cherry Parfait
made with Greek yogurt for an easy addition of protein and a burst of serious flavor.
: If your family is bored with the same old dinners and you want to be kind to Mother Earth, give Coconut Rice with Grilled Shrimp
a try tonight – you’ll be a big hit around the dinner table and
rest easy knowing that you’re feeding your family some super healthy fare.
: For those of with a serious sweet tooth, it might seem impossible to stay healthy and green while indulging in something that’s delightfully decadent, but this Peach Torte
begs to differ!
Celebrate Earth Day with Natural Slumber
Another great way to take care of yourself and
the environment is by getting better sleep – naturally! After all, you can’t do your best to live green if you’re not getting the recommended 8 hours of slumber each night.
And if you’re sleeping on a natural mattress
that is CertiPUR-US® Certified, has been delivered in a box that has a smaller carbon footprint, and comes from a company that’s a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, you can rest easy knowing that you’re helping the Earth while getting the best sleep of your life!
Celebrate Earth Day in the Great Outdoors
And let’s not forget to actually get out there and enjoy the beauty that Mother Nature shares with us each day! Not only will you help yourself to get (and stay) healthy, you’ll also be celebrating Earth Day all year round with these simple ways to get outdoors and have some fun…
• Visit a National Park
in your area
• Take a beach walk or nature hike
• Walk your dog in a new (and greener!) area
• Play your favorite sport with friends
• Go birdwatching
with the kiddos
We hope these tips will help you to enjoy celebrating our planet every day by sleeping well, eating well, and doing well – Happy Earth Day!
