A Week in the Wellness Life – Juicing, Sweet Treats & Organic Goodies.

I absolutely love a visit to any boutique-y health store, and Organic on Charles is a great find. Heaps of fresh organic fruit & veggies, drinks, skincare, chocolate and snacks, groceries and there is even a smoothie bar too! I picked up some organic red grape juice (packed with antioxidants), Quinitos – quinoa and rice based sweet ‘n crunchy snack, green tea, apples, coconut mylk luvju, strawberries & a free book. Love!

An epic farmer’s market fresh fruit and veg haul for two. We decided that some juicing was on the cards this weekend, and are now stocked up on all the juicy essentials (apples, carrots, cucumbers, ginger, silverbeet, celery), plus lots more produce to keep my housemate and I happy and healthy for the week!

I’ve come to the realisation that these two products make my skin feel better than almost anything else. Sodashi Rejuvenating Concentrate & Sodashi Marine Brightening Mask = total skincare heroes! The concentrate brings my face back to life when it’s looking dull & tired, and the mask amplifies that brightness by about 5 times. I’ve just comleted this little mini ritual and then massaged rosehip oil into my face, so I’m hoping for a glowing complexion in the morning!

And what better to treat myself with than some healthy chocolatey goji berry balls whilst wearing above face mask!! These treats are the second type I’ve tried from the Modern Day Hippie organic snack range, and I’m a fan. Perfect to satisfy a craving for sweets at 3pm or 8pm at night! 🙂 Or anytime really – have them for breakfast if you like, they are packed full of healthy ingredients for guilt free gobbling.

    What a great post! I have a couple of little interstate trips in the next two weeks but after that I am determined to come back and start making small changes to start living more healthily. I think first off will be transitioning to green smoothies for breakfast 🙂

    Oh I wish we had a farmers market in my small town 🙁 my healthy act of the day was making some snack balls for my daughter with sultana’s blitzed into much, coconut and oats and rolling into balls and putting them in the fridge. WELL, she’s just learnt to open the fridge and once she spotted them, they were gone in half an hour!!! xx

    Love this segment 🙂 This week I’ve been spinning, jucing and snacking on Unique Organique activated pecans (delish!). And today I made carob ice cream off Casey Lorraine’s website. It’s made from carob powder, avocado, ice and spinach…sounds a bit odd but tastes gorgeous. I also took my juicer to work and made the office two giant jugs of juice – they mostly liked it! X

    I love looking at other people’s groceries. 😀 Yours just looks amazing, Annette! Which farmers market do you go to? 🙂

    Oooh fab grocery haul! Love it! Will have to try and make some of the Modern Day Hippie treats myself. And totally agree with you about the Sodashi products-they’re two of my absolute favourites as well! Unlike any others I think! xxx
