Earth day is a great opportunity to engage in small change to improve your health and the environment. Whether you have a chronic illness or would like to prevent diabetes, heart disease or cancer, check out these green tips to support your overall health goals.

1. Buy locally made products.
2. Buy vegetables and fruits that are in season.
3. Ride a bike.
4. Walk, jog, or run.

7. Consider organic cleaning products like vinegar, borax, and baking soda.
8. Teach kids about the environment.

Organic Peanut Butter Balls

I was inspired by this idea when I was in DOWN TO EARTH, an organic vegetarian health food store on Maui last month.

You can make it your creation! Grab a mixing bowl and start adding your favs, then roll into balls….

Ingredient Suggestions:
Organic Peanut Butter (I use Teddie’s with Flax)
Slivered Almonds
Flax seed (seeds or ground or both, because we absorb ground flax)
Raisins
Bulgar flour
Raw sugar
Agave Nectar
Crushed Cashews
Dark Chocolate Chips
Flax Oil
Dried Chopped Apricots
