Mask Away!

Giving your body some TLC is just the thing to keep you feeling refreshed and healthy during even the hottest days of summer! Here are a few Beauty Dos for rejuvenating your life:

DO a Coconut Milk Hair Mask!

Pour 14 ounces of unsweetened coconut milk in a bowl.
Refrigerate overnight so it's solid.
Apply to dry hair and shampoo out after 20 minutes.

This simple and quick recipe leaves hair so silky and fragrant, it's almost as satisfying as a Pina Colada! Grab a morning bite to eat while it's setting and it becomes the perfect beauty trick before heading out the door to work!

a Living Clay Mask!

Use 1 part dry clay to 3 parts water.
Place together in a glass, ceramic, or
food grade plastic container with
a non-metal, air tight lid.
Mix until all lumps are gone and apply to face or
ingest and drink extra water.

This Calcium Bentonite Clay works to help remove toxins from the body and improve immune system functions. It's a great way to start the day knowing you're on the right track to healthier living!

Try these fun Beauty Dos to look and feel your best!

Did you know that Udi's now makes cookies?! They are available in Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin and Snickerdoodle. You can find them in our Gluten Free freezers on Aisle 6. Oh and did I mention that they are DELICIOUS?!

I made the mistake of buying a package SOLELY on the fact that I needed the taste fresh in my mind to write this blog. So fifteen minutes later and four cookies down (don't judge me, let's see YOU have willpower with them!), here I am with a (very) satisfied sweet tooth and a positive review. These cookies are hard to put down, I'll warn you of that first of all. They are small but they are very satisfying. Chewy and soft and full of gluten free, nut free and soy free flavor. You will not be disappointed. One of the best parts of this cookie are that they don't crumble when you bite into them like most GF cookies. You actually get to eat a solid cookie, not just a bunch of crumbs at the bottom of the container! Get them on SALE for $3.99 while they last!

Udi's makes a full line of gluten free products including sandwich breads, bagels, pizza crusts, muffins and granola's.
