Tomatoes In Season

SweatTheStyle_HeirloomTomatoesIt’s that time of year in California when you can find a beautiful variety of different types of tomatoes popping up at the local farmers markets. Peak season for tomatoes usually runs from June to October and at this time they are so fresh and ripe you can easily enjoy them with just a little olive oil and sea salt.

Tomatoes which are actually a fruit, are incredibly dense in nutrients and not only improve functions in your body, but also play a role in preventing against chronic disease because they are high in vitamin C, antioxidants, folic acid, and fiber.

If you want to find out the best way to enjoy tomatoes from your area check in with your local farmer to see the wide range of flavors and particular types and ask them for their suggestions on how to prepare them. You might stumble upon a new favorite healthy dish!

Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwich

SweatTheStyle_CoolHausIndulging in your favorite treat is often a helpful way to incorporate moderation into your diet. It’s hard to think of a treat better than Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches. Coolhaus co-founders Natasha Case and Freya Estreller started baking cookies, making ice cream, and combining them into “cool houses” in 2008. With mutual backgrounds in the design and real estate fields, they began naming their ice cream sandwiches after architects and architectural movements that inspired them, and decided to take their newfound passion to their hometown streets in Los Angeles. So after a few days on Craigslist (and some time convincing their families they weren’t crazy), they found and bought a beat-up old postal van, trekked out to the world-famous Coachella Valley Music Festival in April 2009 to make their debut, and, well… the rest is history.

Equally important to their dedication to innovation is their commitment to quality and sustainability. Every Coolhaus treat is all-natural, handmade and organic whenever possible, made with sustainably produced, hormone-free dairy and fresh, local ingredients.

Coolhaus manages to achieve near perfect texture when it comes to their cookies and ice cream. The cookies are flexible and soft and the ice cream has a creamy texture that is often difficult to find when it comes to a frozen Ice Cream sandwich! With flavors ranging from chocolate chip cookies & brown butter candied bacon ice cream to snickerdoodle cookies & salted chocolate ice cream; these sandwiches are a must have cheat treat!

Juice Served Here Alka-Mizu

AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-3AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-5What’s all the fuss about alkaline…
SweatTheStyle_JuiceServedHere_AlkaMizuBy now many of us have heard of alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. It’s also an amazing way to stay hydrated and energized! Alkaline water is also rich in alkalizing compounds, including calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. This water can also act as an antioxidant, finding harmful free radicals and neutralizing them. Wanna give it a try? Grab a bottle of one of our favs from Juice Served Here to see the benefits it can bring to your everyday life!
