As we celebrate Earth Day today, we are reminded of a powerful reason to buy American: the out-of-control pollution in China.

It’s not only the cheap, non-union labor in China that is drawing manufacturers to the country. It’s also the lack of environmental protection standards that much of the developed world has set for companies. When a business can destroy the air, land, and water in pursuit of profit, then we all suffer in the long run. Not to mention that it is a completely unsustainable business model.

Good morning bloggers!

Woke up with minimal sleep this morning due to a parade of nightmares followed by my housemate’s dog howling into the wee hours of the morning. Spectacular experience.

So made a green, energizing smoothie bowl to get me through the day!

Using the Vitamix
2 frozen bananas
2 handfuls of frozen spinach
6 sweet green grapes
½ of an avocado
4 large organic baby carrots - chopped
½ tsp of Organic Burst Wheatgrass
½ tsp of Organic Burst chlorella
1 tsp of raw almond butter

Add organic vanilla almond milk
Add ice

Blend until smooth

Top off with bananas, raw buckwheat,
Sweet coconut flakes, gogi berries, and an almond.
