The summer is coming, it has to be right! Ack patience, patience... What to do in the interim... skin prep! If you haven't tried dry brushing you gotta, not only will it leave your skin buffed and beautiful but it's actually is good for your health too. It exfoliates to open pores and helps expel toxins. Next, you want to moisturize. I'm big on using naturals oils, they leave your skin lustrous, some vitamins and minerals can be absorbed through your skin AND they have naturals SPFs... what? Yes you read that correctly. Olive, coconut and sesame oil are about a 5 and wheatgerm oil is a 20 spf and that's only a few of them. Of course you must use caution when spending time under the sun, but like always we want to think about what you put in and on your body. Wanna know more, start here maybe followed by a google search or two. Fascinating stuff. Now let's focus all our positive thoughts on moving those clouds so the sun can shine down this weekend!

Mung Sprouts by Lisa Check it out, after 72 hours one cup of dry mung beans has sprouted into 8 packed cups of mung bean sprouts. Delicious in salads, sandwiches and stir-fry's or simply with some olive oil salt and pepper, personally my favourite snack to grab on the go... oh how far I've come. Loaded with vitamins and minerals and lots of amino acids. Sprouts are living foods that nourish your cells and provide loads of those magical enzymes. Try This 1. Rinse 1/4 cup dry mung beans and soak overnight (or 4 hours) 2. In the morning rinse and drain 3. In the evening rinse and drain Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the beans have a tail 1/4" or longer, about 48 to 72 hours. Then just pop them in the fridge to stop their growth process. I use a mason jar with no lid and leave it a counter out of direct sunlight. Remember they will grow about 8x their original size so make sure their container has room. I promise this is so simple, you could do it at your desk... oh good idea! If you try it Instragm or Tweet the pictures please @thegoodsisgood we wanna see.
