If you want to enjoy a green smoothie as a snack, you’ll want to use this formula: Greens + Carbohydrate + Protein.

Spicy Sweet Potato Fries
Hungry Happens writes:
The perfect side dish for any meal. Spicy and sweet always feels good. If you can’t get your hands on chipotle powder, you can easily sub in chili powder or cayenne pepper to spice things up.
I subbed in yogurt for the dipping sauce in lieu of using sour cream
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled & sliced
- 2.5 tbs coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 3/4 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp sea salt

How To Make All-Natural Mango Fruit Leather
Oh My Veggies writes:
It’s been a while since I posted a fruit leather recipe here and since I get requests for them once in a while, I thought I’d post a new one today–mango! While I’m not one to discriminate when it comes to fruit leather, I think mango and banana are my two favorites because both can be made without any added sweetener. No sugar, no honey, no agave–just fruit.
I decided to do things a little bit differently this time and use parchment paper instead of spraying my baking sheet with oil. This has a few pros and cons. The biggest downside is that the fruit leather gets a little bit wrinkled as the moisture is baked out. Ugly fruit leather! But using parchment paper makes it much easier to remove the fruit leather from the baking sheet, the bottom of the fruit leather isn’t all oiled up, and if you’re planning on wrapping your fruit leather, you can just cut it into strips while it’s still attached to the parchment. Easy!

Fight Summer Breakouts Naturally
Henry Happened writes:
Summertime for most means more sunshine, adventures, pool days, beach time — and, unfortunately, extra summer breakouts. Why do we break out in summer more than other seasons? As temperatures rise, so does our oil and sweat gland activity. They are working overtime to keep our body temperatures cool. Add in extra sunscreen applications and longer days spent outside in the elements, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a summer breakout. I’ve put together a few tips and tricks for combating breakouts in the summer
Find them all here.

Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think.
If only everything really complicated was explained this way.

Mango Basil - Cucumber Melon Mint - Berry Rosemary Infused Water
Henry Happened writes:
A few months ago I shared a post on How to Make Infused Water plus a bunch of ideas and flavor combinations. Today I’m sharing three more summery infused water flavors. Making infused water makes getting your daily allotment of water much more tasty and fun without added sugar. You’ll be amazed at how quickly water can be infused with fruits, veggies and herbs — and how refreshing it is.
You don’t need a ton of fruit or whatever flavoring agent you’re using. But if you do add more, it will produce a stronger flavor and you’ll be able to refill it a few times without it being too bland. As a quick refresher, use fruit that’s ripe, but still firm. You don’t want to use overly ripe fruit or the water won’t last very long and there’s a chance of contamination from mold. It’s also important to keep the water refrigerated or add ice if it’s out on the counter. Insulated bottles also work.
