1) Nutrition – ATTN Fellow Chocoholics: Indulge In This!

Green and Black’s Organic Chocolategreen-and-blacks-logo-lgMade with the finest organic ingredients — from the cocoa beans and milk to the nuts and fruit.  Their philosophy is that growing organically, with no pesticides and no chemical fertilizers, protects the well-being of the earth and what the earth is able to provide us. Or better said, if you’re good to the earth, it can be very good back.

The result is Green & Black’s intensely rich and decadent flavor.

green and black

So what seems too good to be true turns out to be surprisingly simple. You can have both the Green & the Black. Be Unspoiled & Spoiled Rotten. Have the Organic & the Oh-So-Good. No compromise.

Mmmm, mmmm, mmm!

Look for it at your local health food store.

2) Fitness – Exercise Of The Month

Sun Salute with Twist

Exercise: Targets Core and works Flexibility

sun salute with twist1. Start standing feet together (or feet shoulder width apart for more balance) arms by your side

2. Extend hands overhead, crossing one palm in front of the other

3. Hinge at the waist/hips, twist and reach towards the outside of the right foot, release neck and spine into the stretch
