What’s in this month’s Box?

Here are some health tips and tricks for the month of April:

  1. Spring clean your pantry: Use April as an opportunity to go through your pantry, get rid of any unhealthy snacks, and replace them with nutritious options like nuts, seeds, whole-grain crackers, and dried fruit.
  2. Avoid processed foods and opt for whole foods instead. Processed snacks are often high in sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats, which can lead to weight gain and other health problems.
  3. Make sure you’re staying hydrated throughout the day. Drinking plenty of water can help keep your body functioning properly and prevent dehydration.
  4. Choose healthy snacks that are high in protein and fiber to help keep you full and satisfied. Some good options include nuts, seeds, fruit, and vegetables.
  5. Try to incorporate some form of physical activity into your daily routine, whether it’s going for a walk, practicing yoga, or doing a workout at home.
  6. Get enough sleep each night. Aim for at least 7-8 hours of sleep to help support your overall health and well-being.
  7. Practice mindfulness and stress-reducing activities such as meditation, deep breathing, or journaling.
  8. Reduce your intake of sugary beverages and instead opt for water, herbal tea, or low-sugar alternatives.
  9. Choose healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, and seeds instead of unhealthy fats such as fried foods and processed snacks.
  10. Don’t forget to take breaks and practice self-care throughout the day. This can include taking a few deep breaths, going for a short walk, or taking a break from your computer screen.

Meditation and Mindfulness Tips:

Kindness meditation is a form of meditation that involves cultivating feelings of kindness, compassion, and goodwill towards oneself and others. It can be a powerful tool for developing a more positive and compassionate mindset.

To practice kindness meditation, find a quiet and comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to help you relax.

Begin by bringing to mind someone you care about, perhaps a family member or friend. Visualize this person in your mind’s eye and repeat the following phrases silently to yourself:

“May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you live with ease.”

Repeat these phrases several times, allowing yourself to really feel the intention behind them. You may find that as you repeat the phrases, you begin to feel a sense of warmth and compassion towards the person in your mind’s eye.

Next, turn your attention to yourself and repeat the same phrases, substituting “I” for “you.” Allow yourself to really feel the kindness and compassion you are extending towards yourself.

Finally, extend these same feelings of kindness and compassion to all beings, repeating the phrases silently to yourself:

“May all beings be happy. May all beings be healthy. May all beings be safe. May all beings live with ease.”

Allow yourself to sit with these feelings of kindness and compassion for as long as you like. When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes and take a few deep breaths before returning to your day.

By practicing kindness meditation regularly, you can cultivate a greater sense of compassion and kindness towards yourself and others, which can lead to greater happiness and well-being.

Yoga With Kimmy

French Inspired Hummus Dip (Yield: 12 servings)

  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic clove minced

  • 1/2 tsp. salt


Using a food processor, add garbanzo, water, french inspired blend, lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Mix until you get a smooth creamy texture. You may need to add a little bit more water to thin it out more; also you may need to add salt to your liking. Refrigerate in a tight lid container. Serve with crackers or your favorite vegetables. Garnish with chives if you like. Serve with Plantain Chips
