Hi and thank you for hosting this wonderful hop! I found you through a blogging group on G+ and I’m really excited to read everyone’s posts. I’ve just started on a serious journey toward better physical health and overall well being. I’ve always tried to live as green as possible and I just know I will find some great inspiration here. I’ve linked up a vegetarian recipe which is the most recent post on my lifestyle blog Driftwood Gardens. I signed up for e-mail notifications and I’m looking forward to learning from you and your community!

HI Yossif,
This is probably the most important article most people will read this year. The fact that our gut flora determines the efficiency of how well we harvest calories from our diet plus the benefit of making our own probiotic beverages and foods at home– is absolutely life changing. I try to include sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha in my diet daily.Thank you so much for sharing this healthy advice on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

Hi Dana,
I was truly transported from Whole Foods to kitchen to table by your delightful tale of how you made this amazing spring vegetable salad. Each ingredient was lovingly prepared just the right way to contribute the right texture and taste to the finished dish! I can’t wait to make this recipe at home. I will probably omit the poached egg, since I don’t eat them. But I don’t think that will impact my pleasure one bit. This is a super salad! Thank you so much for sharing this healthy and delicious recipe on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

Hi Donna,
It is so wonderful to use an environmentally friendly like soap nuts in place of conventional laundry products which are often full of toxic ingredients which can harm both humans and the environment. The fact that soap nuts can be reused about 5-6 times before they lose their effectiveness and you can can steep used nuts in hot water and use that liquid as a household cleaner for windows, floors, counters, appliances, dishes and more is truly amazing! I am so glad you shared this green and healthy alternative with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

Hi Sandra,
I really enjoyed your perspective! Most of us went through ‘growing pains’ and an awkward stage while growing up which often strained our relationship with our parents. I remember well. Now as an adult, my dad is truly my best friend and sage. I love spending time with him, so I am so glad you shared this insightful post with us on the Health Happy Green & Natural Blog Hop.

Hi Marla,
This is an amazing post. I hope many families read your healthy, green and natural alternatives to typically toxic Easter baskets and their contents! What a shame that such child-centered traditions such as Easter-baskets and candies are so potentially harmful for the little ones we are trying to show we care.I love the fact that you shared this on the Healthy Happy Green & Natural Party! It is so important that your post reminded us that the Easter basket is actually a celebration of the rebirth of the planet each year and your provided wonderful ideas for green, natural and organic ways to celebrate! We must start new Easter traditions!

Hi Amber,
I’m delighted to meet you and to discover your blog through the Healthy, Happy, Green and Natural Party Blog Hop! I enjoyed getting a chance to see how versatile banana flour can be. I have not used it yet, so now I can consider it as another healthy, gluten free option. I subscribed, and I am following, sharing–and look forward to reading your posts regularly.
