Accessorize Your Smoothie: Get a Cool Straw

Accessorize Your Smoothie
Let’s face it, it’s just more fun to drink your smoothie from a pretty straw (although using NO straw makes a pretty funny green mustache). And so many of you have asked where you could find these reusable straws…so here are some options for you! One little tip: RINSE your straw immediately after using. The green gunk is quite difficult to get out after it dries! 🙂

Pink and Orange from Crate and Barrel
(I just ordered some of these…yay!)
More Pretty Straws
Patriotic Straws

If you aren’t into the plastic thing…check out these alternatives:

Glass Straws
Stainless Steel Straws
Bamboo Straws

    I have a glass straw and it is awesome!

    I use it for when I’m travelling, so I don’t have so much plastic when I”m out and about.

    I tuck it into my “to go Ware” bamboo utensil pouch, and I’m equipped to refuse plastics. Awesome!

    I’ve been looking at glass straws too – but where did the one in the image at the top of the post come from? That one is awesome!

    Robin…I know, I love it 🙂 I got it on clearance from Pottery Barn last summer and haven’t seen them since. If you have one near you, check their clearance items at the end of the summer.

    However, when it comes to the cons, there is only one major drawback but it is a huge area of
    concern. Another treatment, known as microdermabrasion, has a faster recovery time than
    traditional dermabrasion but requires repeated treatments.
    For major surgeries, like liposuction, you may need to be kept in bed for a number of weeks.

    Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to
    start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
