March is National Nutrition Month, and what better way to introduce proper hydration + delicious fruits into your little one’s diet than through refreshing fruit infused water! Sassy makes it simple with their brand new Fruit Infuser Cups! Simply place the desired fruit(s) into the strawberry, close, and place in the cup. Fill the cup with cool, filtered water, and let your little one sip away! For our 1 year old son, we tried combos of strawberries + raspberries, strawberries + blueberries, and raspberries + blueberries. He’s a berry guy, as you can tell!

March is National Nutrition Month, and what better way to kick off the first weekend of the month with this energizing Radiance Juice from EAT WITH INTENTION by Cassandra Bodzak, a gorgeous healthy living cookbook that combines daily meditation with plant based recipes!

Roald Dahl famously said: “If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” I couldn’t agree more. Beauty starts from within and permeates outward. Thinking thoughts that nourish your soul and eating foods that nourish your body are more effective than the most luxurious makeup money can buy. You can’t fake true radiance. This juice is packed with nutrients that will get you glowing from the inside out! Pineapple juice promotes healthy skin and helps prevent acne; watercress is also great for your overall health with its high levels of vitamin C; and cucumber has cooling and moisturizing properties.
