Despite another blast of cold winter weather slamming into Kansas, sunny days and warmer climates are on their way! Many are already starting to prepare for their spring and summer wardrobes, and one way for some is to get rid of unsightly varicose veins. "Natural Care's Vein-gard" is a homeopathic cream that helps relieve symptoms of aching legs and feet, spider veins, as well as tired, heavy, and restless legs! By strengthening and toning blood vessels, soothing inflammation, and impeding vein swelling, it helps enable proper functions. And with continued use, "Vein-gard" provides remarkable alleviation to make your legs warm-weather ready!

Lunchskins by 3 Green Moms

"Whether you care about our environment, saving money, eating healthy, or looking stylish, LunchSkins are the answer to your plastic baggie blues -- they offer an environmental benefit (reduce landfill waste), a practical benefit (they can be used hundreds of times and save you money over the long run), and a healthy choice (food tastes better in a pastry bag)."

Food for Thought has Lunchskins in three different sizes and six different patterns!

Vegan Wednesday! Grilled avocado sandwich!

Tasty Grilled Avocado Sandwich!

4 slices sandwich bread
vegan butter (I prefer Earth Balance soy free)
mustard, optional
vegan mayo, optional
1 large ripe avocado -sliced thinly

1. Spread the buttery spread on one side of all the bread slices. Place one slice, buttery side down, in a preheated frying pan over medium-low heat. If you want to add vegan mayo, mustard, or other "dressings" now is the time.

2. Otherwise, lay the avocado slices from one half of the avocado on the bread, covering well. Place another slice of bread, buttered side up, on top. Let cook 3-5 minutes, or until the bottom is golden.

3. Gently flip the sandwich over and grill the other side 3-5 minutes. Repeat the above to make the second sandwich.

This sandwich is a great compliment for tomato soup! Add some lettuce, spinach, or tomatoes for an even tastier sandwich!
