The projects inspired by the Alps and The Sound of Music ended this week. The series includes the Lavender Goat Milk Melt and Pour Bars, which are made with Goat Milk Melt and Pour Base. To go with the earthy scent of Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil and Spring Meadow Fragrance Oil, the soap is colored with Ultramarine Violet Color Block. It’s easy to make and enjoy.
I’m a zealot about eating healthy and fueling my body for the marathon of life (kids, business, friends, community work etc). When I eat healthier, I feel happier, more energetic and positive. I love love love my team at work; they are thhhhheeeee best and, sometimes, they don’t have time to grab a healthy meal so Bramble Berry offers 1-2 lunches a week. These lunches in the past have included sandwich bars, taco bars, soup, barbecues and salad bars. Basically, if there’s a way to sneak in veggies + healthy proteins, it’s a possible lunch option =)
My favorite work lunch so far is the salad bar. It includes plenty of veggies such as lettuce, tomatoes and carrots, as well as protein like hard boiled eggs and chicken. The team does a great job of chopping all the veggies, preparing the eggs, and even making the dressing! Ryan, who works in production, creates amazing salad dressing concoctions, such as this Balsamic & Bacon Vinaigrette. This past Thursday during our salad bar, Ryan made a Spicy Thai Peanut Dressing that the whole office went crazy for! It’s slightly spicy, super creamy and incredibly delicious. I can’t wait to make fresh spring rolls and dip them in this dressing.
