Grapes are an excellent source of energy for kids because they are rich in natural sugars (glucose and fructose). They are also full of water, carrying, vitamins C and B, as well as plenty of minerals.
This mask was inspired by Lush’s Cosmetic Warrior face mask, which uses grapes for their ability to moisturize and thoroughly cleanse skin. The glycerin and honey help prevent dry skin and give it a nice glow.
Grapes are a September favorite! And it does not get easier than dipping your green grapes into white chocolate for a yummy snack to carry around. You can make this snack in a matter of minutes. Make the night before school and let it rest overnight. Just add it to your lunch box in the morning for a nice little treat.
Peaches are a good source of fiber, vitamins A, C and E and antioxidants. Like prunes, peaches can help with constipation. The beta-carotene contained in peaches is great for eye-sight, nourishing and protecting the retinas..
Use this green clay mask for a detoxifying facial or for on your feet for more sensitive skins. Green clay is ideal to remove impurities and the asparagus helps remove dry skin. The mint gives a nice, fresh and clean smell. Your skin will feel tighter and lighter.
March is a special month for me and I am celebrating it by making a spin-off of my mom’s delicious lemon pie recipe, which has won her attention from top French pastry chefs. Enjoy the sweetness of the meringue, balanced by the slightly tart flavors of the grapefruit.
Grapefruits have far more potential than just making them into juice. To launch our In Season series, we are featuring this understated citrus fruit with a spin-off of my mom’s delicious lemon pie recipe (which has won her attention from top French pastry chefs) and a nice grapefruit salt scrub for a relaxing pedicure moment.
Get inspired by the season! Teaching kids about fruits and vegetables is one of the most important part of helping them build a healthy diet. Every month, we will feature a fruit or vegetable of the month and share kid-friendly recipes and DIY body an home products to get the most of what the season has to offer.
