Everyone could use a healthy, raw snack they can feel good about. When hunger strikes on the go, it's nice to pull food out of your bag and quickly refuel without sacrificing quality ingredients and nutrition. That's where products like NudeFood are handy.

As someone with long, wavy hair, I often find myself struggling to detangle my hair after a shower. Fortunately, Original Sprout sent me their 4 ounce bottles of Hair & Body Babywash, Deep Conditioner, and Miracle Detangler. The detangler works wonders. I squirted a little into my hair and was able to easily run a brush through my hair. The shampoo, conditioner, and detangler used in combination left my hair silky smooth, with no frizz in sight.

Chips are a food staple for many people and everyone has their preferences. Some people like their chips simple with salt while others favor zingy barbecue. Some prefer to deviate from the typical potato chip and go for sweet potato chips or carrots chips or even beet chips. Despite the vast array of chip options out there, I'd never heard of cassava chips, and considering that I love cassava I found this surprising. Similar to potatoes, carrots, and beets, cassava is a root vegetable and lends itself perfectly to a crispy chip. CrispRoot is a gluten-free company that boasts less fat and twice the fiber as traditional chips.

Paleo Vegan…An Oxymoron Or Not?

Book review written by EvG team member Courtney Rasbach:

Paleo and vegan together! Whoever heard of such a thing? Well, I certainly had not until Paleo Vegan by Ellen Jaffe Jones made its way into my home. Within the pages of her enlightening book, Ellen does a wonderful job at describing precisely what the terms Paleo and vegan mean, explaining the differences and similarities and showing that when combined they can make a strong, satisfying, health-beneficial diet for both the athlete and non-athlete alike.

Product review by EvG team member Kelly O'Brien:

Four dads and a desire to feed their kids healthy, nutritious snacks has resulted in the salty, tasty goodness of Ocean's Halo Seaweed Chips! I've been snackin' on four fabulous flavors: Sea Salt, Chile Lime, Hot & Spicy, and Korean BBQ. What I love about this snack is that it is so versatile. What came to mind was tossing them in your child's lunchbox, a picnic to the beach, as a side for lunch, snack between meals and the list is endless (goes on). What we feed ourselves and our children truly matters and I raise my hat to these guys for all of their hard work creating this brand.

I am not a fan of white wine. However, the La Cantina Pizzolato Moscato is amazing! It is made with 100% organically grown White Moscato grape, fermented with vegan-friendly yeasts, is Non-GMO project verified, and it tastes incredible. This is a perfect wine to serve to your guests at a dinner party or to pair with dessert. It also would go great with a bubble bath after a long day at the office.

Earth Science's products are a must try for anyone with sensitive skin. Their Multi-Therapy Ceramide Healthy Skin Lotion has lecithin and essential fatty acids to help heal dry skin, making it a wonderful product all year and excellent during the winter months. At $9.95, it's a great deal for the size and nutrients in the lotion.

If you are new to gluten-free, vegan baking Gluten-Free & Vegan Pie is a great resource, as the recipes are easy to follow with instructive directions.

"Mega Minty freshness that will take your breath away." That is one of the quotes the company Desert Essence uses to describe their Natural Tea Tree Oil Ultra Care Mega Mint Toothpaste and Natural Tea Tree Oil Ultra Care Mega Mint Mouthwash. I'm happy to report that both of these products live up to that description!
