So, I like picnics.
And by "like," I mean "love."
There is just something so peaceful about being outside, feeling at one with nature when you are eating a snack. It's nice to unplug from eating in front of a television screen; plus, eating outside once in a while helps you to truly appreciate your food rather than just scarfing it down.
Kool aid and other sugary drinks are the Big Daddy of picnic drinks, but surely there is a way to have a picnic beverage that is more, say, "adult?"
The solution? Tropical lemonade! Sweet enough to satisfy the choosiest child (or child at heart), this lemonade recipe is sure to please everyone in your picnic party.
So, today I received my free trial of coconut oil. I had always been tempted to try it out (I had heard tales about how marvelous it is for your hair) but, because it can be kind of pricey, I was a bit hesitant to take the plunge by purchasing it at a store. As luck would have it, I ended up as a lucky winner of a single bottle (about the size of a peanut butter container) of the stuff. According to some sources, coconut oil can:
1) Condition your hair for gorgeous locks (click HERE for more information on this beauty technique)
2) Moisturize your skin (click HERE to learn more about using coconut oil as a moisturizer
3) And, of course, be used in cooking.
