Immune Boosting Smoothie Bowl

Hey friends. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented, crazy time that our world is experiencing. Ryan and I made it back safely to Florida as we road tripped across the country from SF (in case you missed it, we decided to move back East), and have just been getting settled in here.

I am trying my best to provide help and resources…

I remember being astonished, by doing just a little bit of research, at how the US barely regulates the ingredients that go into our personal care products (compared to other countries), which then go on to our skin and straight into our bodies.
