Two-cents on bread: Bread has been getting a bad reputation for its gluten, carbs and supposedly, fat. Truth is, real bread is simply made out of flour, water and salt. It is highly nutritious and low in fat.

Interestingly, sweet potatoes are starting to substitute bread on dishes like pizza.

Mother’s day is for our many mothers.

To Mother Nature, who provides us with the essence of life, day after day, without expecting anything in return.

She loves us persistently

To our mother figures, who are always there for us with open arms no matter how far away we may stray. Who nurtures us so we may be the best version of ourselves.

She loves us unconditionally

To whomever is your mother or whatever you find a mother in, Mother’s Day is the day to stop for a moment in our busy lives and show our appreciation and love.

Plant something – On Mother’s Day giving back is the best way to show your appreciation for Mother Nature. To help out pollinators such as bees and butterflies, plant fennel, sage, and cardinal flowers. Find more insect friendly plants to plant here.

Make a call – A simple phone call to say thank you and happy Mother’s Day can truly mean a lot.
