Cook Hot Dogs with the Sun this October

With summer is over and we are officially in the fall, few things are as satisfying on a sunny afternoon than a perfectly cooked Hebrew National (or veggie dog). Thing is, few people actually enjoy going through all the hassle of fumbling around with a bag of charcoal and a jug of lighter fluid to produce said hot dogs. So what if you could utilize the natural energy of the sun? This is exactly what the folks at the GoSun — designer of solar-powered essential outdoor gear— are able to deliver with their portable, convenient, and highly efficient solar-powered cooker: the GoSun Go.

It’s capable of producing up to 6 superbly cooked regular hot dogs in just 10 minutes. And trust me, you haven’t lived until you’ve tasted a hot dog cooked using only the power of the sun!

Available online for affordable price, the GoSun Go is also excellent for sausages, plus any other types of foods you might want.

The GoSun Go® is the most portable solar oven ever. Using just the Sun, this ultralight solar cooker can bake, roast, steam, and boil anywhere. Solar Cooking in clouds and cold? No problem. Breakthrough solar technology that’s fast, reliable and portable.

All GoSun products are FAA compliant, meaning you can bring the Go wherever you go! Tested and confirmed by members of the team. Try doing that with propane!… but don’t really. To prevent damage when flying, pad your tube with foam from your original packaging or use a similar blanket or towel. This wrapping will help to keep impacts from the reflectors or bracket from making their way to the tube.

Dr. June Chin of Yesterday Wellness Discusses How CBD Benefits Women Over 30

A recent study reported that women are more apt to use CBD for wellness, whereas men are twice as likely to use CBD regularly. Research shows that CBD can provide longer-lasting relief for women due to how CBD metabolizes in the body.

Enter Dr. June Chin, founder of the bicoastal medical practice MedLeaf RX and chief medical expert for Yesterday Wellness. As one of the foremost practitioners of cannabis medicine in the country, Dr. Chin has utilized CBD as a treatment option at her Manhattan practice since 2001 and notes that CBD can aid in symptoms stemming from menopause, endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, and more.

 

“As women, we go through several distinct physiological changes throughout our lifetime that drastically alter the amount of estrogen in our system,” Dr. Chin says. “Understanding how CBD can play a part in regulating hormonal flux and easing these transitions can be a health and wellness revelation.”

Dr. Chin is available to discuss why CBD is rapidly becoming one of the most effective treatments for balancing hormones and mitigating inflammation in mature women. She can also speak to:

  • Common symptoms in females that CBD can treat: How CBD specifically targets deficiencies in the body that cause health problems.
  • Shattering the stigma: Many of Chin’s patients feel silenced by the stigma surrounding CBD as a women’s health treatment.
  • Sourcing CBD products formulated for women’s daily needs: How women can determine which form of CBD works best for their biology, the Entourage Effect and why it’s a crucial component.
  • The future of CBD in medicine: What needs to change for medical professionals to prescribe CBD with confidence.

Learn Gardening, Science and More with “A Family Guide to Terrariums for Kids”

With the increasing likelihood that more kids will be home distance learning, here’s a fun and creative means to learn about science, nature, and more.

Kids love to create, imagine, and have fun. Nothing fulfills all three of those desires quite like designing and planting a terrarium. With the step-by-step project instructions found in A Family Guide toTerrariums for Kids, the results are beautiful, inspiring, and confidence-building. Making these little landscapes develops motor skills, spatial awareness, and provides a wealth of sensory input. The science behind the art is included with quick and simple lessons on ecosystem functions, the water cycle, and plant nutrition. But for kids, it’s all about being active and building something cool!

With the terrarium plans found in A Family Guide to Terrariums for Kids, everyone in the family can tap their inner “science geek” to:

  • Use multi-colored sand and succulents to craft a desert terrarium
  • Plant, trim, and tend a terrarium bonsai tree
  • Build a peat bog filled with carnivorous plants
  • Make an aquatic terrarium, complete with a marimo moss ball “pet”
  • Design a prehistoric garden of air plants
  • Create a plant-filled habitat for a praying mantis
  • Grow a Japanese garden with living rocks

With information on selecting the best terrarium container, growing materials, decorative elements, tools, and plants, readers are primed for success that lasts long after the terrarium has been built. Terrariums combine imagination and creativity with a dash of hands-on science. And you get to play in the dirt! What could be better than that?

About the author:

Patricia Buzo is the owner and artist behind Doodle Bird Terrariums.

USING CRYSTALS IN YOUR INTENTION SETTING RITUAL

An intention setting practice is a powerful ritual that can help you achieve a happier and more fulfilling life. Intentions are, simply put, the things we want in our life. This can be money, deeper spiritual connection, romantic relationship, confidence,  better health, and so on.

We all want something in our life but we don’t really sit down and define it regularly. When we just keep our intentions at the back of our heads, we are telling the universe that they are not really important to us. Undefined intentions are like fragile wishes that are broken and forgotten easily. You need to make your intentions stronger so that you can achieve them.

Crystals are great visual reminders to amplify the power of your intentions. Each crystal stone imbibes different energy. Rose quartz attracts love. Amazonite inspires courage. Citrine seeks happiness. There is no need to choose a crystal based on its healing properties. Instead, let your intuition guide you.

When picking a crystal, let yourself be drawn to the color, shape, or vibration that pulls you in. Don’t overthink. We are naturally attracted to crystals containing energy we subconsciously want to invite into our lives.

During your intention setting practice, hold your crystal in your dominant hand and say your intentions out loud. You want the universe to hear you, not your neighbors. Repeat your intentions to yourself and fully attach this message with your crystal.

Every time you see your crystal, it should remind you of your intention. Place your crystal within sight or carry it in your pocket. The easiest way is to wear your crystal as a bracelet or a necklace so that you are always reminded of your intentions.

Using crystals or healing stones in your intention setting routine connects you to specific energy and guides you in your journey to self-improvement. You can use your crystals to help you get through your doubts, worries, and anxieties along the way.

Crystals draw your focus back to your intentions, magnifying your thoughts and helping them manifest quicker. They are an easy and beneficial addition to your meditation and intention setting ritual.

Karma and Luck is a spirit-centered modern lifestyle brand offering jewelry curated by intention and high-vibrational home decor inspired by timeless traditions.

Sandra’s Celebrates National Chicken Month While Celebrating the Earth

The chicken brand’s Upcycle campaign focuses on sustainability.

In honor of National Chicken Month this September, Sandra‘s all natural chicken brand is highlighting its commitment to sustainability.


The chicken brand launched #UpcycleWithSandras, a unique sustainability campaign designed to encourage consumers to repurpose and reuse product packaging to reduce waste. To help with ideas, the inside of Sandra‘s packaging features different printed designs of fun, reusable items like bookmarks, thought bubbles, recipe cards, coupons and patterns that can be colored to create something new.


“We value sustainability and being good stewards of the environment,” says Marketing Manager Alicia Mort. “We’ve taken something that would normally be thrown out and given consumers options to reuse it for another purpose. Whether it’s cutting out one of the mustaches to snap a fun photo or coloring in the patterns printed inside the box, the Upcycle campaign is a way to encourage thinking ‘outside of the box’ and promote sustainability.”


In conjunction with the campaign, the company that makes Sandra‘s chicken also aims to reduce waste and build a broader sustainable culture within its operations.

“Our staff is focused on identifying long-term sustainability projects that helps the company work toward its goal of becoming a zero landfill operation,” says Mort. “Sandra‘s is doing our part by encouraging consumers to think about creative reuse of the product packaging.”


During National Chicken Month, Sandra’s is also celebrating its commitment to producing chicken products with better-for-you ingredients. The brand recently introduced its premium chicken entree line featuring antibiotic-free chicken and superfoods now in five flavor varieties: Cauliflower & Chia, Quinoa & Veggie, Kale & Pepperjack, Cordon Bleu, and Broccoli & Swiss.
